Six Runway Shoes At PFW That Made Me Look Twice

The marathon of fashion month is finally over and while following the whole ordeal quite closely, I chose not to cover the shows this year as they simply are accessible enough to everyone online and through social media that I didn’t feel the need to add myself to the list of people covering the catwalk. I’m at the point where, while it is nice to cover a few highlights or one particular show, if we need to really see whats going on, we’d go straight to the source.

However, while fashion month is about what it is named after- fashion, I feel that footwear can often be forgotten. Thus, I have found a beautiful excuse to share these gems that really caught my eye during Paris Fashion Week. So, without further adieu, lets just get to it:

Paris Fashion Week Shoes 2015

These embellished woven thick-heeled pumps at Celine. I love the how juxtaposed the crystal embellishment is against the woven body of the shoe. I could see these being worn so many different ways. Let’s keep an eye out for them!PFW-2015-Dior_1

Clear heeled, head turning boots at Dior. Ten bucks says Anna Dello Russo rocks these as street style sometime soon. I’d love to style these one day.

The most perfect mid-calf python boots by Lanvin that I’d be wearing in an absolute heart beat. Mid-calf is one of my favourite boot heights because they make such a versatile look. Also, notice how they tie? Isn’t that great?

Pumps that play with tough-girl texture at Louis Vuitton. I really like these because they are so wearable. PFW-2015-Miu-Miu_1

The return of the glitter heel (with a twist!) at Miu Miu. Suddenly having the urge to wear sky blue with silver glitter. Also, look at the glory that is the contrast between the pointed toe and the shape of the heel. Bamn!PFW-2015-Stella-McCartneyAnd finally, unnecessarily beautiful, Baroque inspired boots at Stella McCartney. The embroidery and material is beautiful. I see these being paired so easily with a wispy maxi skirt or even a pair of boyfriend jeans.

What is your favourite pair of footwear from fashion month?


Free People: Breton Heeled Boot

Cutout boots are nothing new, and I admit that I haven’t been nearly crazy about the trend as most people, however, I found these Breton Heeled Boots by Free People a while ago and for once wasn’t completely opposed to the idea. I think the colour of this pair makes the cut of the boot seem less harsh than those we’ve seen when this design first started to emerge. Not only that, the cut out is at the back of the boot, and not done in a totally abstract manner. I think that this is a much more accessible pair and an easy way to take part in the style concept without having to feel like you have jumped “feet first” into the trend.

What do you think of cutout boots? Are you on board or are you a bit more skeptical like me?

Black Sandal Redone

Gianvito Rossi has redone the perfect black evening sandal. Love the little cuts, shape and ¬†subtle mix of textures. What do you think? This pump makes me want to re-evaluate my evening shoe collection. Black sandals like this are totally underrated. Also, you should totally check out the rest of the Gianvito Rossi SS’15 collection- totally worth scoping out. Have an excellent weekend everybody!
