Saint Laurent - Paris 105 Pump

Saint Laurent - Paris 105 Pump

It's been said time and time again here on Writing in Heels, but sometimes simplicity can be just as fabulous and this stiletto from Saint Laurent is the classic example.

The simple silhouette is classic yet executed to perfection, with just the right amount of booty in back - 10.8 cm/4.25 inches to be precise! And then there's the colour...

Michael Antonio – Lamiss Snake

Michael Antonio – Lamiss Snake

It might look quite simple, but this stiletto from Michael Antonio is chic, stylish and super versatile, particularly given it's available in a number of different colours! Ten points if you can guess my fave...

Featuring sexy texture with a snake stamped synthetic upper, pointy toe and 11.43cm (4.5 inches) heel. This is the perfect go-to shoe for transitioning between work and play!

Manolo Blahnik - Zullin Crystal-Draped dOrsay Pump

Manolo Blahnik - Zullin Crystal-Draped dOrsay Pump

There haven't been too many Manolos featured on WritinginHeels.com, maybe because I have a penchant for slightly higher heels, but I can sure appreciate shoe beauty in all shapes and sizes, I give you exhibit A.

This gorgeous stiletto from the famed fashion designer is the epitome of evening elegance; sultry metallic silver colouring, dripping jewels and chic silhouette.

ShoNews - Christian Louboutin - SS14

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! 

Valentino - Rockstud Calf Hair Slingback Sandal Pink Leopard

Valentino - Rockstud Calf Hair Slingback Sandal Pink Leopard

Having recently seen a pair of Valentino's very similar to this pair in the flesh, on my cousin's flesh even, whilst I was the colour of Shrek with envy, I also could appreciate just how fabulous a pair of Valentino's really are! 

And when you have a name that contains words like 'rockstud', 'pink' and 'leopard', it's almost like you're speaking a special language... Shaz's Shoe language. Mmmhmm!

Schutz - Alameda Bootie

Schutz - Alameda Bootie

Time for a bit of quirky in the Shoe Box... as if there isn't enough, hah! As if! Anyway... this shoe is from Schutz and is a strange combination of what I would classify as bootie+stiletto, and it is this combination which gives this heel its intriguing shape and silhouette.

With the classic chic stiletto body at the bottom, it turns more bootie oriented as we near the ankle, with a high-top cuffing most of the ankle. The lace-up detailing down the front gives another dimension and adds a fun, stylish component.

Lucy Choi London - Tartan Print Court Shoe

Lucy Choi London - Tartan Print Court Shoe

Want to tart(an) up your look but still keep it chic and classy enough for a stroll around the office or workplace? Then this is your answer! Introducing a fabulous pair of stiletto heels from Lucy Choi London in a stylish Scottish tartan print balanced out with a four and a half inch black pin-thin (well not quite, but you get the point) stiletto heel. 

Keeping it elegant and out of the 'naughty school girl' zone, the silhouette is simply gorgeous.

Casadei - Jungle Pop

Casadei - Jungle Pop

The name is almost as alluring as the shoe with this 'Jungle Pop' heel from Casadei. This gorgeous stiletto has an absolutely amazing silhouette, with a heel that is lacquered and real steel! 

The jungle animal print is in fabulous and fun shades of orange and fuschia pink with black animal spots, and just to class it up further, the heel also has embroidered Swarovski crystals!

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. 

Chinese Laundry - White Danger Zone

Chinese Laundry - White Danger Zone

With so many black shoes featured in the Tuxedo Tales style edit, it was necessary to include its monochrome counterpart - white! And this stiletto from Chinese Laundry is bang-on trend for the sophisticated and chic image of the Tuxedo Tale girl. 

Finished with a white leather upper, the heel's main feature is the pointy toe with a metallic cap. The heel height is relatively low at just 3.75 inches, but surprisingly this doesn't compromise the look of the shoe.  

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...

Steve Madden - Darrt

Steve Madden - Darrt

Sometimes it is the simplest shoes that are the hardest to get right and the hardest to find. Steve Madden delivers with this almost outrageously simple black patent stiletto, but it is the small things that make this simple shoe a simple stand-out. 

Firstly, the size of the heel. Simple and safe, does not have to mean short! This heel boasts a gorgeous 4.5 inch heel that gives you sexy, sophisticated stature! Combined with the pointy toe, it's a perfect shoe for the corporate world and can easily be sexified for friday night.

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. 

Vince Camuto - Harty Striped Metal Snake

Vince Camuto - Harty Striped Metal Snake

Hitting the classic colours of Pop Tart - silver, hot pink and black, this heel has a silver metallic snakeskin finish and a wicked racing stripe of hot pink running across the length of it. 

Relatively low (in my heel terms at least), and the pointy toe makes it a perfect match for a mini skirt. 

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.
