SHOE PORN: GLADIATOR HEELS

15 May

Gladiator Heels

2 words: MUST HAVE!  What am I talking about?  Gladiator heels! Duh, hence the title of the post. Gone are the days of regular sandals and pumps, gladiator heels are the hottest thing in fashion right now. Making their grand debut on the runways of the Spring 2013 shows, these bold and tall showstoppers are a fashionable hybrid of a strappy sandal and a cut away boot. Let’s take a look at some of the many different looks of this season’s most fabulous shoe.

I’m having a major shoegasm just looking at these!! Imagine how I’d be trying these on!  When I think gladiator heel this is the only shoe that comes to my mind. It’s so lux, sexy and is the perfect definition of a showstopper. Available in black, gold, nude, and silver. These have been featured everywhere and on everyone.

Versace – Leather gladiator sandal boots

Hot off the runway! This refreshing take on the color nude is such a breath of fresh air for the otherwise, darker tones of the gladiator heels that I’ve shown. What’s the best part? The sandals feature the iconic  Medusa medallion embellishment on each strap. Pair this with a monochromatic ensemble and you are sure to turn heads!

SHOE PORN: WHITE PUMPS

5 Mar
A MUSTHAVE for Spring 2013! Can you say WHITE HOT!

A MUST HAVE for Spring 2013! Can you say WHITE HOT!

Recently, I’ve noticed more and more celebs are wearing white pumps, and I gotta say I love it! White pumps are no longer for Easter Sunday service anymore, they can be worn with just about anything. It’s the perfect pop of color to spruce up any look. So why are many people skeptical of this on going trend? I’ve been on many fashion sites and lately I’ve noticed that whenever a white shoe is shown on someone the comments are always negative. Even when I ask random women about white pumps they cringe at the thought of wearing them. I’m so sick of hearing the phrase “I would wear those if they wear black”, or “I just can’t get with wearing white shoes”.

Ladies, can you honestly look at this picture and say that white shoes just “don’t go with this outfit”. Ignore the fact that it’s Kim Kardashian (for all the KK haters out there) and judge the outfit. Is this not chic?

Stop being afraid to step outside of the box. There is nothing that a black pump can do to an outfit that a white pump can’t.  Black is safe. Of course if a particular shoe came in black you would wear it. You probably already have it.

Fashion is all about fun and being able to take a risk. Don’t overlook the next white stiletto you see, you’ll be surprised at how many ways you can style it.

What do you think of the white shoe trend? Is it a MESS or a YES?
