Hyper Customized Loafers …

Untitled-1

There are so many amazing options in both high end and mass market for loafers. It was The Duke of Windsor’s favorite shoe, along with JFK’s. Isn’t it funny how there can be so many different versions of the same thing? Just a piece of hardware tucked in there, with a leather sliced on a […]

Black Platform Sandal; A Shoe Review ….

Ceacuteline-Fall-2014

Last season when Philo presented her collection, I eagerly waited for her fall garments. I didn’t feel that much for the clothes at all, but the shoes…The shoes were good. But just good. In fact they reminded me of shoes I had when I was 12-13, the ankle strap broke and I cried for like, […]

Je voudrais ces Chaussures ….

Yes I absolutely adore these shoes above … I really really do. Brings me back to the old days. When I used to dress more like….What’s below…. This was wayyyy back in the day. When I used to wear fur, and everything studded. Remember it was like 80′s craze at this time and that “russian […]

Summer Sneakers

IMG_9827

In the summer I think it’s really important that whatever “sneaker” you’re wearing is either perforated, or lightweight. In this case, with these Pumas you get both. Constructed with what seems to be nylon, it is also perforated for ventilation. I personally love wearing sneakers during the summer. It’s the most comfortable, speedy option, and […]

90′s Helmut Lang, cobbled and elasticized …

54698329c28bb05286ac7410e32afd7e

This is another one of those “what?? The future already happened….?” posts, where I sit back as usual, confused as to how a designer created something nearly 20 years ago that still feels quite “hi-tek” today. I’m particularly interested in Lang’s usage of hardware on shoes (notice the silver tips on some of these), his […]

Shoe Addict ….

IMG_7793

I have an addiction to shoes. Send help. Or send me shoes. Either way I am 100% sure that I need a “shoe” psychiatrist. Everyone start flipping out “She needs help! She’s crazy!”. *Scoff in sarcasm*. I’d like to invite the Bozos at NowManifest to come shred on my machines. Oh that’s right you can’t. […]

The future already happened?!! What do you mean…

1-suzy-menkes-albanese-vogue-25jul14-sm_b_1440x960

There are two fashion journalists I read, their names would be Cathy Horyn and Suzy Menkes. Cathy Horyn is my favorite because she is the only Alpha at New York Beta Times: a paper where you get the feeling that they want to give you the red pill, but can’t handle the consequences. Cathy Horyn […]

Ballet Flat for the street …

8e00232715d45d0b7baa59abe8c075ae

I need this but with little grippy things like they put on those Todd’s Gammino loafers. With an elastic criss cross ankle strap and pink leather with a slight sheen you get this ballet look without all the pain that goes along with dancing ballet. No, I would never even consider doing ballet beautiful. But […]

Fall ‘Flatforms’

1

I am sure you already heard about these ‘FLATFORM’ shoes, basically it is a shoe that has a platform but usually it’s below 3″ and the height doesn’t exceed throughout….They are usually attached to a sharp oxford, or a lace up shoe design. These below are by Diego Restrepo. The best I’ve seen thus far […]

‘Feet’ shoe versions by 3 designers

toe

Sometimes an idea is so strange or too kitschy for it to trickle down into the mass market, so it certainly feels like ideas can circulate only within the high-end spectrum. I don’t believe in this thing where if one designer did it, another isn’t allowed to go near that territory… This attitude is quite […]

Invisible shoes

Thank god for internet, otherwise it would so hard to find incredible designs like the one above. Originally I was going to share this on my liveblog, but I had to put these shoes here, I know there’s been a see-through trend going on as of late but from far away these shoes make your […]

Shoes for Spring

margiela

Spring…? I am waiting patiently for the weather to settle down. Sometimes it feels like winter again, and other times it’s beautiful outside. Still shoe priorities must be straightened out for all women. Here are some of my favorites this season. One of the first designs I saw for this spring that caught my attention […]

This will Destroy You

DSC_0277

As you already know I am a huge fan of Anastasia Radevich’s shoes, along with Susie of Stylebubble. She is always doing something different, and I have to say a lot of her pieces seem like museum worthy pieces. Pieces featured below may not be considered for everyday wear, but still I think it’s important […]

Still more questions? More answers!

Okay, now I have to answer more questions, first with all the curiosity on the Nikes, and now with the adidas. I give you my hand, and you want my arm. Well heck, take my body. Home now, finished work but still working.. e-mail comb, facebook pollution, you know the deal. No whiskey …

A day with Luxirare

new

So I’ve already let you in on my breakfast routine, but what about a day? Today I had the best day, so I just had to share. Rarely get to spend a whole day with my mom, so I was so excited. One thing about me I’m very close with my family. Blood relations, kinda […]

Luxirare Shoe Repair

DSC_0409

These shoes that I had gotten from Etsy were pretty worn out when I first received them, but after a good 3-4 months of wearing them nearly every other day, straps finally slipped loose from the base and the shoes were rendered un-walkable. It happened to me on the street and after that night for […]

Noteworthy Shoes 2011-2012

shoes

Hands reaching or pointing to represent best of the best. I went through a phase where I had to collect shoes. Something about owning them made me feel more powerful or something, but as seasons pass I look at those same shoes I lusted after and realize they are no longer as desirable as they […]

Industrialized Studding

This micro studded effect, as I mentioned before, is probably one of my favorite forms of garment decoration. Going through the comments it seems like the Versace post brought up some really great points about decoration that I actually agree with, but that doesn’t mean we can’t love what we sometimes rationalize as mindless. And […]

Luxirare’s Loafer

DSC_0019

The idea of playing with a loafer was just too tempting for me so I had to delve in. After watching a short scene in Mulholland Drive where Betty and Rita both fall for the singer’s lip syncing in Club Silencio I wanted to use this scene as my inspiration for my loafer. You …
