It’s been a while since a pair of shoes took my breath away. But, that is exactly what happened when I spotted Oscar Tiye AFEF sandal in platinum gold and silver glitter. Me thinks I just found my new evening shoe. Let the drooling commence.

I have Spring on the brain and for several good reasons. All of last week’s snow has pretty much melted away and the groundhog did not see his shadow. So I find myself fantasizing about warmer weather and all of the wonderful shoes that it will bring. If you have read my blog before you know that I am having a not so secret love affair with Francesco Russo and after perusing the SS16 collection it doesn’t look it is going to end anytime soon. It is simply amazing. One of my favorites are these black patent leather braided sandals which will look great with basically anything. I definitely foresee another visit to 8 Rue de Valois in the near future.
Yesterday was so cold that I was basically ready to give up on life. In fact, I was all set to post a pair of winter boots in anticipation of the blizzard that is being forecast for this weekend. But, then I was scrolling through my Instagram and came across these lovelies. They basically gave me the will to live another day or at least until I can slip my feet into these shoes. Feast your eyes on these cutout sandals and join me in thanking Mr. Ford for giving me life yet again.
So I know that it is cold outside and I should totally post a practical pair of boots for Wishlist Wednesday. But, I have never been the practical type so I am posting what I love instead. Today’s wishlist pick is Jimmy Choo’s Davy boot. I have never been brave enough to get behind the open-toe boot trend but if I was I would definitely be wearing these boots. Enjoy!

It is the end of the year and although people are still feverishly shopping for Christmas presents, New Year’s Eve is in the back of their minds. Most women of course are thinking about what they will wear. Stop and look no further…the Jimmy Choo Dolly pump is the perfect New Years Eve shoe. Nothing screams fun like pom pom pumps. Any woman wearing these shoes is guaranteed to have a great time ringing in the new year or frankly any night out on the town. So run out and scoop these up right away!
So unless you have been living under a rock, you know that pretty much all of the holiday sales have started. Which means it is the perfect time to try and score all of the shoes and boots that you have been dreaming about. These Tom Ford calf hair boots with leather trim are so very sexy and are 40% off at Net-a-Porter. Wishlist +sale = Shoemiracle!
I really haven’t been so in love with Jimmy Choo shoes these days. But, I think that is about to change. There are some great shoes from the Fall/Winter and Resort collections that have caught my eye. So maybe just maybe there is a chance to save our relationship after all. I think you will agree after seeing the Lorelai pump. It is covered in flowers and has just the right amount of sophistication and whimsy. These are the perfect pumps to get you through the holiday party season.
It has been a while since I featured a pair of flats as my Wishlist Wednesday pick. So I figured it was time. Once you feast your eyes on these M. Gemi flats you will understand why I am so obsessed with them. They are simple but the leopard gives them a little extra kick and leopard goes with everything. So, do yourself a favor and get yourself a pair. For those of you who think that the leopard is a too daring, they come in plenty of other iterations.
So I have a friend, who shall remain nameless, who buys party attire in anticipation of all of the parties she is going to be invited to (yes you understood that correctly). Whether these actual invites actually come through is another story. Sometimes, I think she is scamming me and making up reasons to buy new things but I digress. When I saw these shoes I couldn’t help but think of her and her many party invitations (real and alleged). Especially since they are Balmain and Balmain simply screams party to me. They come in different iterations but the purple velvet is by far my favorite and who doesn’t want a pair of purple party shoes. So if you have any upcoming parties or you think your party invitation is in the mail or just one Paperless post email away, I suggest adding these pumps to your arsenal. You will be sure to wow and turn heads.

Sometimes you just need a basic pump. There are obviously many basic pump options out there. But there really is one pump that can easily take you from the office to a night out on the town. It is both classy and sexy at the same time which is no easy feat. Gianvito Rossi’s 105 pump is my go to pump at the moment. I would basically take these shoes in any color and material. However, the green suede screams fall to me so they are my Wednesday wishlist pick.
