ShoNews - Vans x Hello Kitty Collection

ShoNews - Vans x Hello Kitty Collection

I might have jumped on the Hello Kitty bandwagon a little late in life, but I'm not ashamed to say I share a love of the adorable brand with the contingent of 8 year olds that dominate the Hello Kitty fan base. And in a weirdly opposite coincidence, Vans were one of my teenage faves. 

So to hear the two had paired up for a sneaker collaboration was truly appealing to my inner (and older) child. 

Isabel Marant - Milla Suede Ankle Boots

Isabel Marant - Milla Suede Ankle Boots

 

Get your vampire vixen on with these gorgeous suede ankle boots, shown as part of the Spring/Summer 2014 Isabel Marant collection.

One can only gush over the detail of these shoes, featuring cut-outs, oversized bows embellished with gunmetal eyelets, and then topping it off with a wooden conical heel. Not to mention an abundance of black suede... super chic!

These are the type of shoe that you look at and simply gush. And the longer you look, the more enchanted you become whereby a moment of shoe adoration quickly turns into desperation, and one can see why. 

These Isabel Marant sandals are classic, elegant, chic, sophisticated and above all else, glamorous! A metallic scaled finish, cutesy toe bow and buckle strap all combine for the perfect evening look. 

Just Fab - Mirelle Fuchsia

Just Fab - Mirelle Fuchsia

Having recently splurged out on a few new pairs of flats (don't you worry, heels are still my calling card!!), I thought I'd feature some flats that have a wee dose of fabulous and make for a good option for those walks between the bus stop, train station, parking lot and the office! Because let's be honest... sneakers never look good. 

These sparkly numbers are from Just Fab and are super duper cute, fun simply sweet for your tootsies. 

DSquared - Ayers Leopard Printed Bow Pumps

DSquared - Ayers Leopard Printed Bow Pumps

Awww, aren't these just the cutest wee stiletto pumps you've ever seen! Okay, maybe not ever, but they are still Fabulous with a capital F. And while she might not still be gracing our screens on SATC, if she was, I am absolutely positive that Ms. Carrie Bradshaw would be seen strutting Manhattan in these. 

Featuring a gorgeous textured patent leopard print finish, a touch of femininity is brought to the forefront with a strip of pink on the back of the heel and cutesy bow on the toe. 

Chinese Laundry - Twiggy Ice Grey

Chinese Laundry - Twiggy Ice Grey

I must admit, I don't own too many pairs of grey shoes. What can I say, I do find grey a bit drab, normally passable for a suede boot, but with regards to a pump it wouldn't tend to catch my eye. This heel from Chinese Laundry is definitely the exception and so startlingly simple but alluring, I may just change my mind on grey shoes from now on!

It's the colour palette combination which makes this shoe a winner. 

Paris Hilton - Sierra

Paris Hilton - Sierra

Rocking the monochrome look has never been easier with this heel from Paris Hilton. Featuring a hound's tooth fabric body, this heel is a perfect addition to your winter wardrobe and is great to transition between day and night. 

To polish the look and prevent it from looking too dowdy or oldschool, the hound's tooth is complemented by black patent finishings including around the base of the sole, the heel and a cute bow right by the ankle. 

Blink - Edenn Black Nubuck Pu

Blink - Edenn Black Nubuck Pu

A new brand for me, but this heel from Blink took my eye when compiling my style edit for Trend Spotting: Sugar and Spice. It has a pretty, good-girl look to it - almost schoolgirl like - but then at the same time the cheeky leopard print lining, the heavier heel and decent platform all combine to give it a touch of naughty as well.

The curving around the ankle and the bow at the side is a nice touch to give this a bit of originality too. 

Just Fab - Cecile Black

Just Fab - Cecile Black

While it may seem slightly demure within the grand scheme of my shoe tastes, the simplistic but chic nature of this boot is total and utter subtle elegance and would definitely be worthy of a spot in my wardrobe. 

The suede finish gives it an instant touch of sophistication that would have you proudly striding around the corporate corridors and the added height is a further confidence booster.

Nicholas Kirkwood - Sequined Mesh and Patent-leather Pumps

Nicholas Kirkwood - Sequined Mesh and Patent-leather Pumps

This pair of heels is like a women's voice over on a chocolate bar advertisement; complete and utter seduction. They are so perfectly balanced between every sort of emotion - sexy, pretty, fierce, stylish, chic, glamorous... I could go on, and they are one of those pairs, that you can claim "you'll get a lot of wear out of" and you actually will!

Jessica Simpson - Jeorge Black Suede

Jessica Simpson - Jeorge Black Suede

This gorgeous heel is from the Jessica Simpson collection and is a classic pump style but with just a touch of additional detail that gives it a bit more personality. 

The pump is finished in a chic black suede and then adorned with a white lace trim - it reminds me of cake decorating, which is probably why I like it! Not to mention the leopard print lining...

Viva Bordello - Empire City Black B Pink Pat

Viva Bordello - Empire City Black B Pink Pat

You might know Viva Bordello heels as being quite sexy and often available via costume websites, but don't be deterred! With the right choice, you can keep the glamour and make them appropriate for more than just the bedroom! This black and pink number is a perfect example. The black patent finish is sexy but combined with the feminine pink polka dot and trim detail you get a heel that needs to be shown off.

Paris Hilton - Destiny Leopard Satin

Paris Hilton - Destiny Leopard Satin

Nothing says minx quite like leopard print... well in my book at least, and it can be difficult to do with leopard print, but this heel from Paris Hilton balances perfectly between sugar and spice.

The bow on the toe is just adorabe and the satin fabric gives it an elegant finish.
