Autumn Florals

As the weather cools down (Ok, maybe not here today for some freakish reason) I look more and more to my favourite season, Autumn. I love everything about the season from the vibrant colours of the maple trees to the brisk air. Especially I love Autumn and Winter fashion. Sweaters, scarves and BOOTS!

One of the fun trends introduced to us at Burberry AW’14 by Christopher Bailey is some gorgeous florals. I already shared with you the boots from the collection here but for those of us who can’t afford hand painted Prorsum goodness, I’ve rounded up a few other floral footwear designs that you might enjoy. 

So, florals for Fall? I know a few people who would love to keep “Spring in their step” but what about you? What is your opinion on the trend?

My favourite of the bunch- floral print stilettos at LK Bennet. They remind me of my Grandma’s teacups.

Red Ferragamo Slippers

I am back after a great and adventurous weekend. After a couple days of sunshine, salty air, great food and even greater people, I made it back to Calgary in one piece. Sure, the flight is short (hooray!) but as always I was sure to be cozy and comfy during my flight. So what did I wear? Bag that you can’t really see…: Prada. Sweater: Aritzia. Blouse: J.Crew. Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo. 

I’ll be sharing a close up of my new Ferragamo flats later but I will not wait another minute to tell you how comfortable they are. Thank you to Maggie that works at SF in Vancouver for picking these out for me! They are a bit darker in person- more of an oxblood colour with a red sunburst at the cap toe and heel. The detailing is based off a traditional oxford design while keeping the signature double layered bow which is so iconic of the Varina flat. 

More to come from my Vancouver adventure but if you are following me on Instagram @talktomyshoes, you’ll have an idea of the events that have taken place. 

I hope everyone has had a great start to their week! Love!

Michael Kors Fringe PonchoA couple days ago I went out for lunch and did a bit of shopping with some family one afternoon. I’m not usually one to wear heels or wedges while shopping but I thought that I would change things up. I picked up these Corkswoon wedges from Stuart Weiztman a little while ago after lusting over them for two years. Yes, they are the same ones that have been pushed into the spotlight by the Duchess of Cambridge and yes, they are worth every bit of the hype and attention they have received. It didn’t really come out in the photographs but the shoes are actually a rich navy blue colour. What else am I wearing? Top: Michael Kors fringed poncho, Necklace: J. Crew, Jeans: Rag and Bone. 

I hope you’re all having a lovely week. I am off tomorrow for some end of Summer travelling. Even I am curious to know what adventure will come my way this weekend!

Custom Manolo Blahnik BB

 

Manolo Blahnik BB

Above are the Manolo Blahnik BB pump colours available to be “made to order”. I have seen most of these in person so I know that I could never decide on just one pair. While my most recent pair were not made to order, I have had an incredibly hard time finding a picture of them on the internet. Apologies for the terrible yellow lighting. Maybe one day I will own a pair of Manolo Blahnik pumps that are not a shade of pink or purple. But for now, I’m just going to role with it, it seems like all my Manolos sport an ultra femme hue. Has anyone ordered a custom pair of Manolos out there? I know that you can do it at Neiman Marcus and through other Manolo Blahnik locations.
