New Shoes at Victoria’s Secret!

It’s that time again…time to get your feet all pretty so you can wear those cute strappy sandals in the back of your closet. But for those of you who, like me, feel you need new ones (or just really really want them), Victoria’s Secret is definitely ready for spring to get here.

Let me just add that, while I do love all of these styles below, some of them are definitely more than what I would spend. Either way, they are still great styles to see for inspiration. You will definitely be seeing similar styles from less expensive brands.

Highlights from Fashion Week

Here’s some of the more interesting shoes I’ve seen lately coming down the runway. Now keep in mind that when I say interesting I don’t always mean that as a compliment….Just saying…

bestshoes090225-dereklam

Derek Lam

I don’t ever get tired of strappy details.

bestshoes090225-marcjacobs

Marc Jacobs

I do, however, get tired of Marc Jacobs’ outlandish designs.

bestshoes090225-philliplim

Christian Louboutin

I really do believe that Louboutin can do no wrong. Now if only I could get my hands on a pair!

moschino-cheap-and-chic-fall-fashion-2009-001_runway moschino-fall-2009-shoes1

Moschino Cheap and Chic line

Now these are quite strange…I like the way it looks from the strappy side….but looking at it from the front I’m not so sure about.

moschino-cheap-and-chic-fall-fashion-peeptoe_wedge_runway

Moschino Cheap and Chic line

I like the heel detail, but it just looks cheap.

What are your thoughts?

A Few of My Favorites at Target

Just browsing through Target’s website and I found a few nice shoes under this season’s trends section. It seems that the gladiator style is still very much in, as well as animal textures and hardware.

These are my top three right now:

41zwmfgekl_aa260_

Mossimo Pavla Flat Sandal, Grey patent, $24.99

This is a nice refreshed version of the very prominent gladiator sandal for this coming summer. I love the grey, and the studs really give it a nice touch.

41osrzng2cl_aa260_

Xhilaration Tameka Flat Sandals, Bronze Snake, $19.99

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite. I mean look at the embellishment on this sandal! The beading detail is just fantastic, and so is the price!

51q4lhhjg4l_aa260_

Mossimo Vida Peep-Toe Pumps, Copper Snake $26.99

The first thing I notice on these pumps is the great copper color. And then I notice the cutout details and the adorable peep-toe. I really love this pump.

FREAKIN FIERCE SHOES FROM CHRISTIAN SIRIANO!

Anyone who is a fan of Project Runway knows exactly what I’m talking about with this post! Even if you weren’t too happy about Christian Siriano becoming the winner of season 4 (personally I wanted Jillian to win) you have to admit that Christian was indeed ‘fierce.’ And now, his line of shoes for Payless are finally being debuted for all of us to see, and they are exactly what he always says: FIERCE!

Take a look

(thanks to NYMag for the pics!)

sirianoshoes

Yes…these babies are for PAYLESS. I couldn’t believe it either, and let me tell you I will be buying some of these when they hit the stores. Apparently Christian’s line will be in the $25-$45 range which is CRAZY AFFORDABLE for us not-so-rich people!!!

This line is inspired by the ancient Egyptians, and the blue print is actually supposed to resemble heiroglyphics. I have to admit I absolutely love those blue shoes too!!! So keep an eye on these, as they will be out this coming fall!!!!

New Arrivals at Guess

I really love Guess shoes, they always seem to surprise me again and again, and I get tons of compliments on my Guess shoes every time I wear a pair. So it brings me a lot of pleasure to post some of the highlights from their new arrivals!

Enjoy!!

Antigua

Antigua, $70

Rosettes add instant romance to your outfit. Strap on these sandals for a lovely feminine touch. T-strap design. Adjustable ankle strap.

How cute are these!?!? I just love that little bit of detailing, it isn’t over the top or overly girly so I abolutely love it.

Carrielee

Carrielee, $99

Surprise them… embrace your sassier side wearing these heels. Pointed toe with stiletto heel. Inspired by wild designs.

Oh. My. God. These shoes are NUTS. I SOOOOOOO wish they were cheaper because they would be mine NOW. I would wear these killer shoes on a night out on the town, or even just out to eat. I don’t know, I love them so much I think I would wear them everywhere!

Delicacy

Delicacy, $99

Our take on the gladiator style is crazy sexy. Adjustable harness buckles with hidden elastic at the toe, bridge and ankle. Leather lined foot bed and insole.

Guess really REALLY knows how to make a sexy shoe. Seriously, this shoe just screams sexy and in control. I want…

Drifter

Drifter, ON SALE FOR $40 (originally $79.99)

Classic. Clean. Timeless. Get it all in this chic pump that brings natural style to any outfit.

This really is a great wear with everything pump. The round toe makes for better comfort as well as an over all friendlier appearance, and the 4 in. heel will REALLY boost those legs!

Nevel

Nevel, $120

This trendy peep toe pump will knock their socks off… making it this season’s must-have shoe. Stiletto heel. Silver-tone buckle.

This shoe immediately makes me think of the chainmail type armor used in medieval times. All you need is a sword and a horse and your good to go!!  🙂

Nisadora

Nisadora, ON SALE FOR $50 (originally $99.99)

Colors collide for a fashion-forward, lovely high heel. Silk rosette detail at peep toe. Sling back and stiletto heel.

Once again I have to say how much I love that purple is so in right now. With the combination of the colors on the fabric and the ever so bold rosette, you will not go unnoticed with this shoe. Pair it with a great little black dress to impress.

Nolana

Nolana, $99

The ultimate in strappy heels, these intricately designed shoes add a twist of glam to any look.

These wonderfully strappy bronze heels would make a great statement with a deep colored dress like a darker red or a blue.

Teach

Teach, $110

Stripes add a sophisticated edge to these sassy stilettos. Oversized buckle at peep toe.

These definitely seem to be picking up a bit of that nautical inspiration that’s slowly creeping into our Spring 09 fashion line-up. A nice casual shoe, great with jeans or sun dresses.

Vino

Vino, $110

These gorgeous gladiator sandals are designed to keep you looking dramatic and daring. Patent leather and open toe. Jewels adorn the vamp. Adjustable ankle strap.

These are wonderfully glamorous and just the right amount of flashy with the jewels along the vamp. Would be great with a lighter colored dress.

Which one is your favorite??
