I got my first pair of pointed toe pumps in college and proceeded to wear them almost daily – even to class. I loved those white heels (Yes, white! It was the ‘90s – don’t judge), but with my abnormally narrow feet, they were always slipping off. To remedy the problem, I tried every solution imaginable – heel pads, going down a size…nothing would make them fit.
While a hint of PVC evokes thoughts of bright summer days, too much of it can send you down a slippery slope – literally. I don’t need to explain the sticky situation you find yourself in the latter case (shoes made entirely from PVC are gross in more ways than one).
While flowers may not be in bloom everywhere just yet, they certainly are on shoes! I’ve already starting shopping floral appliqué bags, but I’m sticking with prints for my footwear.

Hayden looked the part while attending the Armani Milan Menswear Spring Summer 2014 show recently wearing head to toe, what else, menswear inspired Armani. The top is a little aggressive but I like the idea of the bow-tie inspired fem twist of the top. The sandals are sweet, chic and a mix of loafer meets pump meets sandal.
Only Alexander Wang could make chic shoes from sweatshirt flannel. His super-soft Ts have long impressed, but when you can make a heel comfortable, that’s even more of a feat. This is as relaxed as a 4+ inch sandal gets. Seriously, why buy ugly slippers when you have these?? The cozy feel has me ready … Continue reading Alexander Wang Maryna Sweatshirt Flannel Sandals: Keep It Casual
Alejandro Ingelmo has a knack for taking footwear to unexpected extremes. These aren’t what you think of when you envision cage shoes, yet they’re impossible to resist. With metallic accents and angular cutouts, Alejandro’s heels look like they’ve just been beamed in from the future. The icy Odysseys ($1,295) are definitely worthy of the trip … Continue reading Alejandro Ingelmo Cage Sandals: All the Right Angles
