Giuseppe Zanotti - Leather Biker Open Toe Boots

Giuseppe Zanotti - Leather Biker Open Toe Boots

Now here's a boot that both my Northern and Southern hemisphere audiences can celebrate together! From Giuseppe Zanotti, it should be no surprise really given the cutting edge design, delicious materials and exquisite detailing that make this totally worth every penny. 

Now without wanting to get you too excited, I must also mention that this delectable piece of footwear is also available in two shades! I know... deep breaths!

Sophia Webster - Jessica Printed Leather and Vinyl Pumps

Sophia Webster - Jessica Printed Leather and Vinyl Pumps

As it chimes Shoe O'Clock in the Shoe Box, we are gifted with a glimpse of another fabulous pair from the quirky and creative brilliance of Sophia Webster.

This stiletto pump delivers a wonderful silhouette that is elegant, chic and, quite svelte and sexy at the same time - the kind of shoe you'd expect to see a woman wear who has as much style as power, and has well and truly kicked some serious corporate ass. MmmHmmmMmmm! Queue the finger snap.  

Giuseppe Zanotti - Beige and Black Leopard Calf-Hair London Donna Sneakers

Giuseppe Zanotti - Beige and Black Leopard Calf-Hair London Donna Sneakers

Yep, that's right! It's that time again in the Shoe Box to feature a sneaker and tugging on my own heart strings is this fabulous pair from Giuseppe Zanotti! Probably fairly predictable with the leopard print that I was going to look with adoring eyes upon these sneakers, but nonetheless, the shoes have merit that is much more than a funky print! 

Blinged out with additional detail and complementary accessories, the sneakers have black laces and a black leather logo panel on the tongue, plus gorgeous gold hardware and multiple zips!

Heavy Machine - Wool Gauze Swan Pumps

Heavy Machine - Wool Gauze Swan Pumps

Another heel that falls into that category of 'artistic' and so elegantly beautiful you would think if a famed french artist (yes I'm stereotyping now...) hasn't had some involvement in the design process, then most certainly a famous impressionist painting is the inspiration behind this darling pump. 

Dubbed Wool Gauze Swan Pumps, the name and appearance are quite contrasting against the brand - Heavy Machine.

UNIF - The Goner

UNIF - The Goner

I recently discovered the brand UNIF when I was browsing some urban streetwear sites, and it's exciting to see the edgy street style of their fashion line follows through to their shoe collection too. This sandal has definite bite, with a leopard print in traditional colouring but in a pony hair finish, raow!!

The leopard print is complemented with black leather trimming, keeping to the edgy attitude of the brand and shoe.

Brian Atwood - Tie Me Up Animal Print Leather Sandals

Brian Atwood - Tie Me Up Animal Print Leather Sandals

Another day, another snakeskin heel but this sandal from Brian Atwood definitely differentiates itself from the competition. Probably the biggest trait of distinction is the colour palette - it's quite different, in a colour I think best described as a soft spearmint milkshake. 

The sandal also features a gorgeous lace-up front with extra cording to wrap around the ankle, and complementary cut-outs.

Saint Laurent - Paris Patent-Leather Boots

Saint Laurent - Paris Patent-Leather Boots

Why hello there gorgeous? What's your name? Admittedly, I am saying this to the shoe, but I have no doubt that if you slip into these, it wouldn't be an absurd prediction to believe some lovely gentleman could be saying these words to you fairly soon too! 

From luxe brand Saint Laurent, they might be a bit more of a budget hit than some of the other additions to your wardrobe, but can you really put a price on heels? In answer to this, you can, but it's upsetting to think about so let's move on...

Harajuku Lovers - Dobson Heel Black

Harajuku Lovers - Dobson Heel Black

Another day... another moment of instantaneous shoe lust! Meet a fabulous find from Gwen Stefani's label - Harajuku Lovers. This just screamed Tuxedo Tales when I was searching for shoes to feature in the sophisticated but chic style edit. The monochrome palette is perfect, but it's the detail that makes this shoe.

Finished in a fabulous patent leather, it then features an adorable black and white bowtie adorned to the front and cute black buttons! 

Jessica Simpson - Black Audriana

Jessica Simpson - Black Audriana

This stylish ankle bootie is from Jessica Simpson and really epitomises one of the core principles of Tuxedo Tales: the mixing of textures. With a delicious combination of leather and suede, it creates an elegant look with a shape that allows you to wear both pants and skirts or shorts. 

The subtle cuffing detail around the ankle enhances this bootie even more!

Fergie - Podium

Fergie - Podium

Quite a minimalistic heel but with just a touch of detail in the right places to stop it from being boring. The metallic tipped toe is very in right now and the folded leather cuff around the ankle is chic and interesting. 

This heel is going to be a versatile number in the wardrobe. It's part of my style edit for Tuxedo Tales - definitely bringing an element of sophistication, and it'll easily work into a lot of other looks.

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!

Unlisted - Open The Gate Black Fuch

Unlisted - Open The Gate Black Fuch

Relatively simple, particularly if you've been looking at the other heels that hit the Pop Tart trend, but this colour combination is classic and easy to work into your existing wardrobe. 

Black and this kind of electric purple/pink is an instant win. 

L.A.M.B - Jean Grey Pink

L.A.M.B - Jean Grey Pink

If you want a shoe that sums up Pop Tart, this is it. Electric pink, sparkly shiny silver, and black leather - think of the combination of colours, textures and just general glamorous funk and you will fully get what I mean!

I think this one could cross over into Space Age quite nicely too. 

Chloe Jade Green - Black Lily Biker Boots

Chloe Jade Green - Black Lily Biker Boots

Cute little biker boot that has it's appeal in being quite trans-seasonal as we approach Autumn in Australia! Would go smashing with a pair of galaxy tights r.e. Space Age - Trendspotting!
