Alexander McQueen - Maya Sandals

Alexander McQueen - Maya Sandals

It's like something out of the Lego Movie, a jumble of blocks and shapes that fit perfectly together, but this Alexander McQueen shoe is certainly no childhood toy!

Featuring blue and black snakeskin straps, gold buckles and Plexiglas, it's an unusual combination that would struggle to work for any other label. Then there's the heel...

 

Alice + Olivia - Stacey Face Pointy Pump Soft Pink

Alice + Olivia - Stacey Face Pointy Pump Soft Pink

Cute, quirky and oh so chic! These pumps and flats from Alice and Olivia are the epitome of fun meets fab for your feet with the super cool Stacey Face depiction on the toe. The sunnies and crystal red lips glam it up even further and the soft pink colour contrast with the black is sophisticated yet pretty.

While my preference is always going to be for the pump, these are an example of flats that can be equally fabulous; dress them up or down and flaunt them all over town!

Alexandre Birman - Swirl Suede-Python Strap Caged Bootie Hortensia Rose

Alexandre Birman - Swirl Suede-Python Strap Caged Bootie Hortensia Rose

Well it sure seems like strappy sandals are all the rage, and with this gorgeous pink bootie sandal from Alexandre Birman, one can see why! If the luscious rosey pink wasn't enough, this sandal balances out its girly femininity with python side strapping and heel, in addition to the cage effect - complete with vamp ankle tie up!

The swirl of suede going from toe to ankle is super cute and the heel is a lust worthy 11.4cm (4.5 inches). 

Alexander McQueen - Shearling Studded Bootie

Alexander McQueen - Shearling Studded Bootie

Although we're heading into summer down here in the southern hemisphere, I couldn't resist sharing this stunner of a boot from the oh-so-fabulous Alexander McQueen. While it is probably is not for everyone, you can certainly appreciate the craftmanship of this boot with its quirky combination of textures and the obvious focal feature of the shearling fur and lace-up fastening right down the front. 

The chunky block heel and platform give some needed stability and a height of 13 cm (5.10 inches)!

Atalanta Weller - Perspex Panel Boot

Atalanta Weller - Perspex Panel Boot

One doesn't normally associate perspex with high fashion, but one doesn't normally conjure up an image of this delightful shoe from Atalanta Weller either, and this is definitely one of those 'exception' scenarios.

The perspex panels are definitely a focal point of this stiletto bootie but edging it up even further and really taking it from fab to drab is the colour. In a bold shade of metallic red this shoe oozes vamp style. 

Abbey Dawn - Rockstar Platform Black

Abbey Dawn - Rockstar Platform Black

This one definitely looks like it could've strutted straight out of an Iron Fist catalogue, but it's actually another fabulicious pair from Avril Lavigne's label - Abbey Dawn.

Stars and stripes give this heel a patriotic feel, but the use of monochrome and almost graffiti-style print gives it a real gothic/streetwear edge. Although it's not the most feminine heel, you can actually use this shoe to girl up some edgier ensembles. 

Adidas - Jeremy Scott Poodle Shoes

Adidas - Jeremy Scott Poodle Shoes

I saw these wee numbers in the window and I had to stop to take a photo with my phone. I was also advised by a special someone who will remain nameless, that I wouldn't be allowed to walk beside them if I bought them, but what can I say... I love them!

Maybe it's because I'm a dog lover... but these poodle numbers just scream fabulous. Okay... they scream a few inappropriate cuss words too, but they are supposed to be frivolous, and just plain ol' fun.

Abbey Dawn - Dirty Girl Platform Hot Pink

Abbey Dawn - Dirty Girl Platform Hot Pink

What can I say about this heel, other than... Instant Love! 

That kind of pink is so bang on trend for Pop Tart and then the detailing of the little black skull studs is just magic! One of those details that from far away you don't notice, then up close you can truly appreciate this heel for all that it is.
