We’ve heard that every dark cloud has a silver lining, but the golden lining on these beautiful pumps by Casadei (available on Shoescribe) is step up from that. I think white and gold is a stunning combination and will never go out of style. It’s a classic mix that has been around for ages. These would look amazing worn with a white sheath dress, some sun-kissed skin, and a little golden clutch.
You can always count on Saint Laurent to provide beautiful classics with an edge for the fashion world. From the beginning, the Saint Laurent brand conjured images of gender-bending sophistication, renegade French chic, and a balanced mix of the high and low.
A gold shoe is striking, and doesn’t have to be worn only on special occasions. One of the best ways to make a statement is to wear evening shoes during the day. Luxe materials and details like rhinestones, satin, and velvet can easily pair with simple day dresses and jeans, you just have to be brave and confident with your style.
Maybe it’s because a friend of mine is getting married soon that I’ve suddenly become obsessed with elegant, delicate, and feminine formal sandals. I’m not anywhere close to walking down the isle, but if I were, I know I’d probably spend more on my shoes than on the dress or jewelry I’d wear.
I literally stopped in my tracks when I spotted these BCBGeneration pumps at Macy’s. I’ve said before that I can’t resist shoes (or clothing for that matter) in a bold bright cobalt hue, and these drew me like a moth to a flame. Don’t they make you think of mermaids and exotic tropical fish? I love the subtlety textured, multi-colored iridescent leather…definitely the statement piece of an outfit. You can find these at your local Macy’s (they’re not online) or online at Belk, Dillard’s, and Amazon.
There are so many great shoes from Saint Laurent, it’s hard to choose a favorite! The Tribute pumps and sandals are quite popular, but I actually prefer some of the other styles, like the Paris pumps. Saint Laurent does a great job of merging classic, edgy, sexy, and modern elements all into one design.
There is one style that I will never grow tired of: black and white color-blocking. As much as I love colors and patterns, a neutral palette is something I always default to when I’m rushed in the morning or when I want to keep my outfits simple. It’s a timeless combination that always manages to look polished and chic. The Fastir pump by Enzo Angiolini is a beautiful, sleek shoe that would feel quite at home with all my other pumps. I’m dying to add it to my collection, but I think I’ll have to wait a bit considering I barely have room for the other recent additions to my closet. You can find this gorgeous pair at DSW, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
After TJ Maxx launched The Runway in select stores a few years ago, my chances at finding high-end shoes for less greatly increased. My collection of decadent footwear grew significantly since then, but there was always a nagging thought at the back of my mind: what about Manolos, Jimmy Choos, and Louboutins? Today I finally got my answer.
In my opinion, some of the most memorable shoes from the Fall/Winter 2013 collections came from the Balenciaga show. There were endless boots, minimalist sandals, and some very intriguing pumps. The pumps combine the airiness of a thong sandal and the elegance of a classic point-toe pump.
