“Face” shoes

June 18, 2010

I was glancing through Sea of Shoes’s posts and this caught my eye. I didn’t get it at first though, I merely thought it was just simple random designs to the shoe. But on second look, I realised it was a face!!!

Then I found out from her post that this is a D&G pair. Suede face shoes. Haha, how do you like that – faces on your feet!

As what Jak & Jil calls it; Knotty.

They are still so amazing even though I honestly think I could die walking in these all night!

I heart Miu Miu chunks

Short follow up from my last post on Miu Miu’s platform printed chunks – I swear I see them everywhere on fashion blogs.

Here’s one from Pandora in flower prints:

Find these lovelies (in cat prints too!) here, here, and here.

They probably can be found in tons of other fashion blogs, if you ever find some please share (!), but these are some of the blogs I stalk more often than not. : D

Really wished I had my own pair!

Chunks

April 6, 2010

I’m sure most girls who are into fashion and street photography will probably already know about Fashion Toast. I like Rumi Neely’s dress sense simply because she’s daring, believes in her own style and above all, she can carry it off well!

I kinda like the way she is able to carry off those chunky platform heels. These are shoes which I don’t see very often in Singapore (yet). Perhaps the height of the heels is pretty intimidating for starters? And the tropical weather doesn’t really help either.

Plus I think you really need to know what you are wearing here in Singapore to match these heels in order for people to stare at you for the right reasons.

Some of her recent pics up on her blog which I think are pretty neat:

Not a big fan of prints, but I thought this pair of Miu Miu platform chunks on Net-a-Porter was kinda cute! Sparrow prints!

Your take?

DKNY Spring 2010

March 25, 2010

As I mentioned before I don’t know much about designer brands, but recently I’ve been pretty intrigued by runway fashion so I’ve been spending time looking up articles and galleries of the recent Fall/Spring 2010 fashion show collections.

They are all pretty cool stuff, but in this post I’d like to share a designer brand that I’m pretty sure most people are familiar with – DKNY.

DKNY RTW Spring 2010 – I know most would probably focus on the apparels, which had a clean, sharp look, and tons of floral prints (which till date I find hard to carry off), I thought the shoes were quite a delightful sight.You may check out the apparel collection via the link, cos I’m just gonna talk about the shoes I like here!!

Just mainly 2 designs, but in different shades of colour.

First design that got my attention:

I am not a fan of strappy stuff but what caught my attention was the vibrant combination of colours of the straps! The design is simple, but the colours helped to nail THE look for this pair of shoes. What do you think?

The same design in other lovely colour combinations:

Second design that stopped me at hello:

No prize for guessing why this caught my attention!

Again, I am not a fan of pointed heels simply because they remind me of a witch. Plus, it isn’t very comfortable. I don’t own a pair, but I don’t really need to have a pair to tell that pointed heels are plain tortourous. Pity my toes, having to squeeze into that tiny miserable triangular area. How do OLs even walk around in this kinda shoe anyway? Blisters much?

That’s besides the point.

Look at the design of it. So simple yet classy at the same time, no? I am truly amazed at the difference a thick strap across from the head of the shoe joined to back can do to the look of a pair of pointed heels (that I’ve always boycotted). Plus, the outfit was matching! This shoe actually convinces me that not ALL pointed shoes are just… witchy. Lol.

Same design in classic black and pale grey:

Thoughts?

While browsing through some shoe blogs, I saw some images of runway shoes that got my attention… for the wrong reasons.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2010

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010

I just don’t get the socks with heels trend. Do you like it? I don’t!

It is just plain weird and awkward! Plus those socks look thick.. what happens if my shoe fits me just nicely and no more room left for the thick socks?

Maybe in Europe/USA people find this acceptable but I doubt Singaporeans will agree. If you wear your shoes this way you’ll prolly get stared at on the streets, for the wrong reasons of course.

But I am not saying Singaporeans CANNOT pull off this trend. Some can, I think. But it depends because everybody’s look is subject to perspective. And since everyone has an opinion on everything…

I saw this look on LookBook, thought it was pretty decent. She could carry off this high socks with shoes.. mm, not too bad.You can check out her other looks via the link.

Quirky, yes. Cute, yes (the hat made the look cute). I won’t say the shoes made the outfit, but yeah, pretty decent.

Ok I am guessing students from LaSelle and NAFA has already tried this look and I believe I am right. Whether or not they managed to pull it off… Well, haven’t seen any on the streets who could. But then again not many are trying this look out to start with…

Long story short, I guess you got to have the right physique & apparel to even want to try this look here in Singapore. Else, you’re just gonna be talk of the town man!

I think designer shoes are pretty. Well, some of them. Ain’t a big fan though, cos their prices are just wayyyyyyyyyyyy too high.

Then again, that’s why they are called designer shoes. The branding really does make a difference huh.

Honestly I am not all that exposed to all that designer runway shoes, am still learning about their design range from season to season. Here’s something I stumbled upon from Valentino’s Ready to Wear 2010 Collection (my first time looking at Valentino’s range btw!) – although I am not a super big fan of lace, I still think its mad ass chio so I wanted to share it!

Those embellishments look pretty coral-shaped, like those you find in Nemo’s nest!

Looks kinda flimsy on the runway and it kinda looks like seaweed don’t you think? But still, very pretty… especially the beige one, only because I am into nude shades recently lol.

Picture below is the retail version of it, and it’s called the Sculpture Lace Pump.

BUT. One big setback – it cost freaking USD4,700!!??

Well yes, erm, the shoe is really pretty but I definitely won’t pay near USD5k for that! Totally out of the question please!
