Similar to the Manolo BB, the Jimmy Choo Anouk pump is another classic style. Pretty much every celebrity has been seen wearing a pair, and it’s easy to see why; the pump has a timeless shape and comes in various colors that can be worn with anything. But since I like classic with a twist, I’m more drawn to the studded Anouk. I love the little baby studs all over the shoe. It’s not quite punk, but it turns a basic black pump into something a little more unique. You can snag a pair on FarFetch, or check out some of the great double-takes I’ve found.
This past Saturday, DSW had their second National Shoe Lover Day extravaganza. My first experience with this wonderful holiday was last year. And since I don’t work there anymore, I couldn’t pass up a chance to win free shoes. The excitement and energy is great, and the temptation to splurge on shoes is even greater than normal. So what did I score? These wonderful ankle boots by Michael Kors! Luckily, they were on clearance so I didn’t actually spend as much as I thought I would. I was thrilled when I spotted them in my size because they’re a great bootie for fall. They look fantastic with jeans and a chunky knit sweater!
Large buckles and multiple straps scream edgy rebellion. Many times, this look can be over-done and gaudy, but Giuseppe Zanotti turns this concept into an elegant high-fashion shoe.
I remember wearing slip on sneakers when I was a kid, they were huge in the 90s. Those and Keds were probably the most popular styles in my small town when I was growing up. Of course, basic styles never really go away, and when they do come back, they’re better than ever before. I’m so happy that there has been a shift towards comfortable and fashionable sneakers lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love my heels, but there are days when this shoe lover just wants to slip into something more low maintenance. I’m dying for a pair of leopard print pony-hair slip-on sneakers (ala Céline), but I came across these glitter ones at DSW and fell in love. And they were on clearance!
