I have been dying to get a pair of M. Gemi shoes ever since they came on the scene earlier this year with their luxury shoes made in Italy without the luxury price tag. I have just been waiting for the right pair. M. Gemi releases new shoes every week as opposed to doing one full collection each season. So every week I check to see what new shoes they have released. This week the Serata Sandal was released and I decided these were going to be my first pair. Of course, when I go to the website to purchase them and the color that I wanted sold out in what feels like minutes. So I guess I will just have to covet them from afar unless they magically become available in my size.

I don’t know what I love more about these shoes…the croc effect (as you know I am a sucker for skins so this mock effect is right up my alley) or the gold adorned heels. It frankly doesn’t matter because all of these elements come together to create the perfect shoe in my book. Plus they have a chunky heel which means they will be comfy to wear. I had to include pictures of both the front of the shoe and the back because the heel is amazing. I can’t wait to see these in person. In the meantime, these photos will have to do.
I guess I don’t really don’t have to say this but I love Paul Andrew’s shoes. Each collection keeps better and better. Pre-fall shoes are now in stores and there are several that I would love to add to my closet but I really love the Westside sandal. It comes in variety of jewel-tone colors and black of course. Honestly, I would take any color but it is so rare to find a beautiful green shoe so I thought I would include a picture of the emerald-green version. There is really nothing else to say. Take a look for yourself.

I will be the first to admit that it took me a while to warm up to rose gold. However, when I laid my eyes on this Lorraine pump by Nour Jensen I knew I had to have them. There is just one problem…they are only sold at Level Shoe District in Dubai. Yes I will move heaven and earth to get a pair of shoes that I love but flying to Dubai is kind of where I draw the line. Jensen is new on the scene, only launching her line this past spring so I expect that future seasons will be more widely available. In the meantime, I will just swoon from afar.

I love a good wedge which is why this Charlotte Olympia crocodile stamped wedge caught my eye. I am a fan of anything made in crocodile but obviously not the hefty prices that come along with crocodile. Even though these shoes are stamped, they are still luxurious so sign me up. They are available at Net-a-Porter for those of you so inclined to add them to your closet.
When I saw these flat python printed slides from Zara, I knew I had to have them. They are not actual python which I am partial to but the print effect is well done. Plus they are pink and only $36. So frankly, it’s a win-win in my book. I am thinking about also adding some of the other colors to my collection as well.
Yes today’s wish list pick is another pair of espadrilles. In my defense, I did tell you guys last week that I could literally buy a pair for each day of the week and then some. But these have to be the mother of all espadrilles. Ever since I saw this pic, I have been trying to rationalize how these shoes can be mine. I was also reminded that I need to figure out how I to get myself an alligator farm. I have been dreaming about opening an alligator farm ever since I read about a sustainable one in Bloomberg Magazine a few years ago. Yes I read Bloomberg magazine (I used to work in finance so don’t judge me) and yes, I actually dream about owning an alligator farm. Having an alligator farm would solve so many problems for me. But I digress. I so want, need and love these Chanel espadrilles.
