Ladies... hold on to your... erm, fascinators? Actually, nevermind your headwear let's get straight to the point... new season Christian Louboutin! I know, I know, my heart rate just sped up a little and I got that fluttery butterfly feeling too, and for good reason too!

The Spring Summer 2014 collection is filled with lust-worthy shoes ranging from strappy sandals to sexy chic stilettos. And we best not forget about the boys with several enticing picks for them too!

I can't believe it's that time again... that's right, it feels like only yesterday we were looking at the Spring/Summer 2013 collection from Privileged by J.C Dossier, so how can we possibly be onto their Fall/Winter collection already! Well... if I have learnt anything throughout my journey of shoe discovery, it's don't question the unncessary! 

Instead, we shall embrace the bold, bright and downright dazzling designs of the new Fall/Winter collection, in all their daring razzle.

Christian Louboutin's are to me, like Manolo Blahnik's are to Sarah Jessica Parker and her fashion savvy alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw, so the launch of a new collection is like a torturous version of Christmas whereby you get to open all your presents but keep none of them.

Nonetheless, like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, I can certainly still longingly look upon the fabulous combinations of spikes, leopard print, pink and glitter. J'adore...

ShoNews - Privileged by J.C Dossier - S/S13 Collection

I'm yet to own a pair of Privileged by J.C Dossier shoes, but I must admit that this shoe brand is right on the mark with my taste in heels and the Spring/Summer 2013 collection is no different. 

Featuring a range of styles, prints and eccentric design elements, the collection is fashion fierce and fashion forward, but what makes it even better is the fact that most of the styles are available in a selection of colours! So you won't be hitting that annoying situation of... "I love it, but I wish they had it in pink...". Find the Privileged shoe for you!

Privileged - Novice

Privileged - Novice

Privileged deliver again with a rockstar sandal/wedge that would almost be criminal to not be seen on a Gaga or Pink stage somewhere around the world. The shape is definitely the core feature to this shoe, with an almost geometric design aesthetic to the wedge heel and perfectly placed cut-outs, completed with a gorgeous gold finish. 

The heel height is a worthy six and a half inches, incorporating the two inch platform, but you'll achieve a bit of stability with the wedge style.

Rat Baby - SHBO Pink

For the rocker girls out there, this heel is for you! Rat Baby delivers a pump that definitely isn't short on rock star attributes, its most notable feature being the kickass five and a half inch thunderbolt heel!

Coupled with the matte black glitter colour palette for the heel and 1 and a half inch platform, and then a hot barbie pink sythentic patent body, the colours alone make it a winner in my eyes.

Privileged - Kempton Mauve

It might not be for everyone, but this boot would definitely have a place in my wardrobe! From Privileged by J.C Dossier, this shoe features a staggering 6 inch heel - don't worry, there's 1 and a half inch of platform in that! And adorned with spikes that aren't just for show - they could do some serious damage if you wanted them to. 

But it is the lace detail of this boot that makes it so lust worthy...

Okay... I know you're thinking it, especially if you're a kiwi... yes, this boot does have a little bit of a 'gumboot' feel to it, but it's only a hint and it's coupled with a western flavour and then a studded edge. This combination creates a boot that's actually quite versatile!

In autumn/winter, this can be paired up with tights, or in summer/spring go with a cute litte summer dress!

Varsity Vintage definitely has a more masculine edge to it, but if you want to girl it up a bit, there are still options, do not panic! Introducing this wee number from Zigi Girl. This boot is Gorgeous, with a capital G! 

The studding detailing gives it the masculinity and edge to hit the mark with Varsity Vintage but the shape and oh-so-sexy height will make you super chic too. Winning.

Shoe Republica - Tacoma Fuchsia

Shoe Republica - Tacoma Fuchsia

Fab-u-lous! I love this shoe. It has so much attitude and looks like one of those heels you would see but never be able to find. 

I love the spikes and the shiny patent finish is perfect to make the spikes look seriously threatening. 

Just Fab - WTH Fuschia

Just Fab - WTH Fuschia

This heel, I think can be best surmised as Barbie with Attitude! The candy pink with the offset of silver spikes is kick-ass, and although you can't see the lining when you wear it, just seeing glimpses of the awesome black and electric pink skeleton design will leave you smiling. 

Heart it!

Betsey Johnson - Ginger Turquoise Pat

Nothing quite screams Pop Tart like bright fuschia or turquoise in a shiny patent finish.

This heel is delectable; the colour is something that's sure to be an excellent collection to your shoe wardrobe and the added spikes really give it a bit of spice. 

Chockers Shoes - Va Va Voom

Chockers Shoes - Va Va Voom

Chockers Shoes have a few heels with this print, but it works absolutely fabulous with this bootie style. The addition of the spikes on the heel and the ankle belt give it real spunk.

Hitting the comic book sub-trend of Pop Tart, this pair is best teamed with something a bit more low-key to ensure the shoes do the talking.  

Chockers Shoes - Whoosh

Chockers Shoes - Whoosh

This shoe is so bang on trend and at such a bargain price, it's almost criminal not to buy it right this instant! (not to mention it has a few cute friends!) 

The spikes provide attitude and the comic book flavour provides a bit of funk.

J.C. Dossier - Privileged Rockstar Platform Pump with Studded Spikes Neon Fuchsia

This shoe is the first I've encountered of J.C. Dossier, and if it's anything to go by then it hits my sweet spot bang on! 

I'm loving the contrast with this shoe - pink and spikes, to be fair, it is a neon pink and not a girly pastel or baby pink, but the slight juxtaposition is still there.
