Shoesday Tuesday – Spring Has Sprung

Image

It’s here! Spring weather has finally caught up with the calendar.

My rule is that if the temperature is above 50 degrees – open toe shoes are allowed, better yet – encouraged. Finally I got to bust out my new red strappy sandals that until now have been quietly and sadly sitting in the corner of my bedroom – waiting.

I went a little overboard with my eye candy research this week but I couldn’t help myself. Also – nice to see that my ankle strap obsession is still going strong.

Shoesday Tuesday – Spring Forward with Love

Image

It’s officially spring. And although it doesn’t feel like it yet – I am optimistic. But I’m not only referring to the weather.

Today – as the Supreme Court hashed out a conversation about Marriage Equality – I was uplifted and inspired by the amount of love and positivity I came upon throughout the day via the interwebs. I knew I chose my friends for a reason.

In the spirit of social equality, happiness, Springtime, and love – here’s some shoe eye candy from every color in the rainbow.

Shoesday Tuesday – Wishful Thinking

Image

With 50 degree temperatures a fond memory of the past couple weeks and slushy, snowy wintry mixes an unfortunate reality of the present – I still haven’t taken my new red (beautiful) strappy heels for a spin.

I tried to cheer myself up with a thigh high stocking/sock double layer combo today – but alas, I am really just tired of wearing my winter coat.

As Spring officially begins in two days – let’s all close our eyes, wait for 11:11 and wish for warmer weather.

Here’s what you should be picturing:

Shoesday Tuesday – Spring Trends, a How To

Image

Fashion is run by trends – we all know that. However, it’s what you do with said trends that creates personal style. There’s nothing wrong with embracing a new trend – but some can be tricky. Here are some tips:

  • Pick one trend and stick with that.
  • If the trend you are going for is bright, busy, or flashy – tone down the rest of your ensemble to compliment it and let it pull the focus.
  • If it doesn’t flatter your body type – don’t take it personally. Always place blame on the clothes – not on your body.
  • Take risks.

With that out of the way – let’s check out four shoe trends for Spring 13 (which weather-wise is rapidly approaching – finally) and put them into real life action!

Shoesday Tuesday – Wait For It

Image

So while online window shopping at Forever21 the other day – I saw something familiar..

end of feb

Ombre Heels. Interesting. At the beginning of January, I posted about new styles I was seeing pop up – and posted these beauties from nastygal.com (see below.)

beg of jan

Also interesting that they are almost 4 times the price.

So then I decided to do some research – where did this trend start and when. Let’s watch as the fashion machine boils products down to mass market level.

Screen shot 2013-02-26 at 11.54.44 AM

Here they are at the end of January for $235 bucks at unifclothing.com.

But they still must have started higher than that.. which leads me to – McQueen.

November 2012. About $1,200.

beg of nov

And October 2012.

end of oct

With this math – the NYFW eye candy I posted last week should be at Forever21 by June. (and for a measly 3% of the original price) I like those odds.

Shoesday Tuesday – New York Fashion Week of Shoes

Image

Before I get into discussing the shoe beauty of NYFW Fall 2013, I’d like to extend my apology for missing last week’s Shoesday Tuesday due to a killer sore throat and a memory lapse!

Onto the shoes.

NYFW has come and gone (now it’s London’s turn) and having only attended one show (Costello Tagliapietra – who had some pretty fabulous floral pumps stomping the runway) – I turned to the interwebs to educate myself.

Thanks to shoerazzi.com for giving me everything I needed in one place!

I have immediately fallen in love with the following:

And my personal favorite:

Also bringing me eye candy was fabsugar.com. Bows and Shoes – my two favorite things:

fabsugar

And to wrap it up neatly with a designer I showcased in my last entry – fashionpulsedaily.com shone the spot light on Alejandro Ingelmo.

Screen shot 2013-02-19 at 10.22.45 AM

All of which I will wait patiently for until Forever 21 knocks them off next year and I can buy ’em for $24.80!
