Nothing beats the perfect shoe silhouette

9 Jun

I can’t believe i haven’t blogged in so many weeks! So so heartbreaking! But hey, it’s one day at a time i guess, never too late to jump right back in. I plan to express my fashionable side as much as possible from now on. Scouts honour!

So, my eyes dropped to the silhouette of my shoes today and i couldn’t help the fuzzy feeling. I love that beautiful arch at the sole of a shoe, especially when it curves into a slim and generously high heel. We’ll be going for a 5 to 6 inch heel there *wink wink*

It’s even more exquisite when it has an unusual shape, I love love love YSL shoes for that, Miu Miu has some stunning shapes as well. We all kinda agree that Christian Louboutin has nailed heel perfection to an art, so we’ll always pay homage to the maestro.

Wella! I decided to go-a-drooling and picked out some goose bumps worthy heels from these amazing shoe artists. Drool with me please, lol.

Spring 2011 Fashion with a Zing!

7 Dec

This editorial is the best expression of Spring 2011 I’ve seen so far. It channels key trends for Spring 2011 and screams girl power, that’s my best part, gotta love girl power. The shoot has got so much oomph! Coming from New York Times Style Magazine, this is definitely Zing!

The fierce model group wore some of my favourite designers, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Oscar de la Renta and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, featuring lots of bright colour and floaty floral print.  Love Love Love!

My best of Nicholas Kirkwood’s Spring 2011 Shoe Collection

1 Dec

The beauty of Nicholas Kirkwood is in the avant-garde structure of his shoes. He’s one of those shoe designers who simply redefined classic shoe shapes and created futuristic, edgy cuts and styles.

Spring 2011 is even more edgy, artistic structure with lots of colour, patterns and lush textures. He still features the iconic pumps with pearl detail – in vibrant hues – and those sleek brogues. I love what he’s done with classic pumps, he’s added some form of interest, so it’s either two-tone or featuring a lace panel or the genius pearl detail.

So, I picked out my favourites of the collection. The first ruffle detail sandal is my best.
