Shoe York, Part 2

Continuing my story on my shoesploration in New York, after finding P Luca Milano I found my heaven.  I about had a heart attack, it's going to sound silly but I have never been into one of his stores until this moment.  I about got myself run over because I got so excited I wasn't going to wait for the cross walk.  It was Steve Madden and all his glorious babies my feet love to be in. 

As soon as I walked in the store I was overwhelmed with joy like I had finally found my home.  I looked like someone that was seeing the statue of liberty for the first time.  I was hit with a rush of adrenalin and didn't even know where to start so I just stood there quietly letting my eyes take in all the amazing shoes and heels sitting before me on the shelves screaming my name. 

Years ago before I was an avid shoe lover, I had a pair of shoes bought for me.  I opened the box and I can still feel the rush I had when I laid eyes on my first pair of heels.  They were Steve Madden and from that point on I became connected with shoes thus becoming the shoe lover and obsessive I am today.  Being able to see that Steve Madden shop in New York on my first trip and randomly stumbling upon it, was like fate telling me I was supposed to be there at that moment.  Walking in brought me back to the day I opened my first pair of heels that were also my first pair of Steve Madden.  I will never forget it.

I had an amazing trip that was guided by no one but me which is an experience I will always treasure.  Finding my own way through the hustle and bustle of the city and not really knowing where I was going.  Not being afraid to do it alone and taking on the streets of New York solo led me to many memories I never would have made otherwise.  I found another little piece of Sarah on that trip and found more than the inspiration I was looking for.  I love you New York and I will forever love Steve Madden!!

Shoe York!

Our friend and blogger Sarah just returned from New York ... or, rather, Shoe York! She loved it, of course, and has this to share with us:

Last week I was able to take a solo trip to New York which I was stoked about. It was my first time and I had no idea how to get anywhere or where to go but that was the fun of it all. When the opportunity presented itself I made it my mission to find fabulous shoes to photograph.

 Only problem was didn't know where they were and I was only there for 2 nights. I landed in New York in the late evening so had the cab take me straight to the hotel and decided dinner and bed was in order.

 I could sit here and write all day about the overwhelming feelings you have when you first get into the city and see it for the first time in your life. There are no words for it. When I woke the next morning I decided after getting myself ready I would go and explore since it would be my only full day there.

 So I headed out and walked around and after about an hour of walking around 7th ave. I decided to hit Central Park since my hotel was only 4 blocks from it. That park is seriously mind blowing and I had a great experience visiting it.

On my walk back from the park, mind you I was in 3 1/2 inch heel boots lol, I had it in my mind I was going to eat and explore the city more. After walking forever and being so far from my hotel I found P Luca Milano and let me tell you I am in love. Not only did I find some heels that were jaw dropping I found the boots of my dreams like they were made just for me!!! Here are my P Luca Milano findings that I just had to share with you!!

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, yes I am!  Who said we can't wear white after Labor Day.  It's a rule my friend and I refuse to follow, in moderation of course.  I think white shoes and boots can bring out the winter.  I went searching for an amazing pair of white booties, boots, and heels.  I wanted each to be unique and have that warm winter feel.  Searching for shoegasmic white boots and shoes is harder than I thought it would be but nothing will get in my way when I want something and I want all 3 of these!!!  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!!

Omg!!! Winter, style, warmth, comfort, sexiness all mixed into one amazing pair of booties!!  It's the workmen's boot made over with the beautiful and stunning white lace.  They are screaming hot and sure to melt away the snow.  I can't get enough of this bootie, the minute I saw it I got excited and giddy inside like a little kid at Christmas time!!!

In elementary school, I remember every year my teachers passing out sheets of white paper.  We then would fold the paper in many different ways.  When we were done folding it we would be asked to cut holes on the edges.  When we were done and unfolded it, it was a cute snowflake and we would hang them all over the class room.  The metallic cut outs in this shoe remind me of that, a beautiful snowflake.  I absolutely love these, truly delicious!!!

For anyone living where it snows or gets really cold...These are perfect!!!!  I want them right now.  No other boots says winter holidays like these babies!  So gorgeous and classy.  I will dip my ice cold feet into these scorching hot boots any day.  My feet just beg to have them on and feel the warmth and softness while looking sexy and chic.

Plaid is Not Bad


I have been noticing plaid has really started making a huge come back.  Shirts, pants, skirts, and dresses.  Plaid has never really been my thing but lately I think it has started growing on me little by little.
ShoesTweet Says:  Plus, plaid gives that sexy schoolgirl look that makes almost any man go crazy
 

I have a male friend who is a musician and a plaidaholic.  He wears more plaid shirts than anyone I know but he wears them well.  He has a great knack for fashion and a unique sense of style.  Though he loves plaid, it doesn't mean he wears just any plaid.  Just like he is picky about perfect pitch and tuning, he is just as picky about his plaid.  Thinking about this inspired me to go looking for amazing plaid heels and booties.  I also got to thinking this would be fun to have him pick which ones I featured.  Let me tell you he was just as picky. 

 

I have to say he has a good eye for shoes, don't let him know I told you that haha!!!  It took us a while since I am choosey when it comes to my shoes and he is choosey when it comes to his plaid but we did it.  I don't know that I love plaid enough to wear a pair of pants in plaid but I could definitely wear one of these...

 

 

Giuseppe Zanotti-Wool Tartan

(found on shopbop.com)

 


I actually love the plaid on this heel.  It's crisp and rich in color and so eloquently designed.  The boldness of the colors make these heels warm and inviting.  I really enjoy the unique, almost tear drop, looking peep toe with the square front.  With these we can all say the higher the heel the better, they are just simply fantastic.  Giuseppe has made a plaid lover out of me!

 

 

Abbey Dawn-WTH Platform Peep Toe

(found on heels.com)

 


Can we say naughty feisty school girl?!  Who knew plaid could make me go wild?!  The spikes just demand attention and the peep toe teases the eyes.  The red and the black make them dangerously sexy while the little hint of blue adds a little cuteness.  I am craving the playfulness and edge this heel exudes.  Sexy little devils with a sweet goody goody side, come to mama!!

 

 

Alice + Olivia-Lolita

(found on shopbop.com)

 


Cute and sophisticated.  These are simple, classy, and very easy on the eyes.  I feel like the black and white plaid is a classic and you can't really go wrong with it and I think it's perfect match for the Mary Jane style of this shoe.  The squared toe goes really well with the plaid design, it all just fits.  I love the simplicity of this plaid choice because you can wear it with pretty much anything. 
ShoesTweet Says: Note the ankle strap. LOVE It.

 

 

Fabi-Ankle Boot

(found on polyvore.com)

 

Fashionista meets plaid with these.  To me the plaid brings out the maroon patent and makes it pop.  The other thing I love about this bootie is rhinestone detailing in the plaid.  Some of the lines in the plaid are made with little tiny rhinestones of that color.  These booties play with my eyes and draw me in with the intricate details that jump but in a subtle way.
ShoesTweet Says: This says sexy, naughty librarian to me.  I can just see her in glasses and a white oxford button down, skirt, tights, and these shoes...
 

 

Gianni Bini Cain

(found on dillards.com)

 


This is by far my favorite one, it gets my heart pumping like it's going to beat out of my chest.  I am sold on the plaid after seeing this.  The black suede with the red and black plaid come together so well, I can't stop smiling.  The buckle on the back give them glam and attitude.  I can't peel my eyes away from them.  Not only do they play on my love for red and black but they tease me with their slight edginess.  Please can I have these?!!!

Shoe Seduction

                                                                     
                                                                     
                                                                     
                                             
So I had a friend send me picture of a shoe she knew I would fall for and the
link to the site she found it at, I immediately fell in love with it. It has my style and personality, good girl on the outside and bad girl on the inside!! inkedshop.com is for the bold and the brave, people who love to stand out and make a statement with their shoes. I love unique designs and styles that capture peoples attention and makes them go wow.

This site and everything about it is dangerously daring and I can't get enough of it. Every shoe is unique and interesting you can hardly pick just one. Thanks to my friend I have another site to obsess over, not like I didn't have enough already =) I will get her back for this!!!!

Here are a few I felt inspired to share with you. Bordello White and Black



My friend sent me the picture of these and they piqued my curiosity and interest. They have that old fashioned tuxedo feel to them. The 3 buttons going straight down the side give this bootie vintage flare. They almost remind me of a vintage school girl. I just absolutely adore them and wish for them to be mine.
ShoesTweet Says:  These are almost so proper they are naughty. 

  Pleaser USA Seduce



This red and black patent heel seduces me for sure. These babies have major sex appeal and get your mind racing. They scream for a night of true passion and lust. The peep toe begs you to play peak-a-boo with your eyes as you sit and gaze at them. I can't help but crave them. Ohhh, the possibilities are endless in these sassy vixens.

Pleaser USA Black pinstripe Mary Jane


These knock outs bring me back to Bonnie and Clyde. Crime, love, sex, and violence this heel brings it all. I feel when you are in these you should have a gun strapped to your leg with a garter belt under your dress. I love the pinstripe paired with the satin, lace, and bows.


  Rat Baby Black Bolt Heel


I have found my solemate. Check out the amazingly awesome heel on these beasts of nature!! The pink instantly popped out at me. Very bold and exciting. They add spunk and adventure to your closet. The spikes on the rim of the vamp give this heel an attention whore vibe that I think is delicious. I just can't get enough, "Don't stop til you get enough!!" They are just badass!!

Bordello Black and Gold



Moon light walk under the stars, our first date. Our eyes lock, we smile, and lean in for our first kiss. Sparks fly as we open our eyes, look up at the black sky, and feel the magic. This heel inspires a night of fun and excitement. Magnetic forces that are pulling you to them, beckoning you to slip them on and get lost in them. They are classic with little bits of flare that catch your eye.

Wild Animals!

                                                                   

Sarah's Safari


Everyone has that inner wild animal inside screaming to come out. I wanted to have fun with this one and make it all about animal print. I don't know what it is but I am obsessed and addicted to animal print.

I feel like I have, in the past year, started show casing my personality in my shoes and my style. My bestie mentioned I should dedicate a post to just animal print and my mind just went crazy. I didn't want to pick just any heel with the print, I wanted the ones I picked to captivate me and make my thoughts go wild as I look at them. I believe shoes tell a story. Each one has it's own tale that it's desperately trying to get out. If we listen we will allow ourselves into that story. Get ready to let loose that caged animal inside and let it take you on a dangerously exciting adventure your feet and eyes will thank you for! Here are my picks I had to share...

Roberto Cavalli-Suede Watersnake (found on Zappos.com)


Poisonous passion and desire. They are tempting me to touch them, to slip my ever so daring feet into them, but do I? Do I take a bite of the forbidden fruit? I would love to give into these sexilicous vixens. Is the temptation whispering in your ear?

Y.S.-Wood Python (found on charlotte-luxury.com)


Dark, mysterious, and intriguing. They are commanding a night of thrills and deep adventure. My eyes are begging for mercy, but I can't release my gaze off the truly stunning master pieces. They are handmade which blows my mind. The carving of the scorpion on the platform and the python skin on the vamp leave much to be desired. These venomous witches are not for the faint of heart.
ShoesTweet says: These may be "bedroom-only" shoes, but they are certainly daring and delightful

  London Trash-Ceres (found on heels.com)


These are pleading to be hunted and captured. They give off a feisty confidence that I crave in a shoe. Such a playful catch me if you can game on the eyes, it just sucks you in. I feel I will rock the world in these and totally love every minute of it!!


Penny Sue-Cha Cha (found on heels.com)


RAWR!!! Fierce, stunning, and magnetic. The design of the leopard vamp reels you in and captivates you. They ignite the flame and bring the fire to life. They are daring you to find out what could happen while wearing them. I was sucked in the minute I laid my eyes on them. The flared heel gives them that extra, BAM I am woman hear me roar!! Draw yourself into the fire and never leave...If you dare!

Charlotte Olympia-Daphne (found on net-a-porter.com)


Sexy, fun, flirty, and exciting. I'm ready for the wild ride these babes would take me on. They give off a "come hither me" feel you can't help but give into. These are glamorous and full of lust. Hard to get is the name of the game while in these lustful beauties.
ShoesTweet says: The perfect combination of innocence and desire... cute red bows combine with leopard to say I'm a librarian, but a naughty one

5 Booties Under $100

                                                                     
                                                                     
                                                                     
                                             

Sarah offers some advice on great booties at a great price (under $100):


So this weekend the weather cooled way down here in Nashville and I was looking in
my closet and realized I had more flats than boots. I got to thinking that my collection needed more boots. I have gained an obsession in the booties recently and wanted to go searching for some perfect booties that weren't going to burn a hole in my wallet. A lot of sites are having some crazy sales right now while people are gearing up for the holiday shopping. I like to keep tabs on sites like heels.com, dsw.com, shoedazzle.com, and charlotterusse.com.

Every week it seems there is some kind of new promo or sale. I keep a close eye on them though because sometimes the sales are only 1 to 2 days long.

It is sweater weather time and I don't know about you but I am in need of some fabulous booties for my closet. I found 5 perfect booties on my hunt under $100 perfect for any occasion whether it be the office or cocktails after work.

 Take a look at what I found... Zigi Soho- Sincere $84.99 (from heels.com)


These have a warm winter feel that I just want to sink my feet into. They are perfect for the office or for a day on the town. An all around great bootie for sweater weather.
ShoesTweet says: These are also quite sexy, with the buckles and zippers providing images of restraint and the flirty peep toe daring the cold to come in...



  Michael Antonio-Madalyn $59.99 (heels.com)


BAM!! Let's brighten up these cold weather days with these sexy babes also found on heels.com. I'm so not afraid of vibrant in your face colors in the colder seasons. Just because the sun is hiding doesn't mean gorgeous color has to. This bootie can be worn anywhere and for any occasion. Be bold and glamorous this winter!!

Fergie-Rina $84.95 (dsw.com)


Sex appeal and classic sophistication all in one with this bootie I found on dsw.com. Go straight from a days hard work straight into a night of cocktails and dancing with the girls. The gold metallic heels gives it the pop of sexiness while the luxe burgundy suede give it a slash of elegance and class. You can never go wrong with Fergie!!

Kelly and Katie-Olivia $49.95 (dsw.com)



Sassy and Vicious is what these are telling me, also found on dsw.com. I picture myself as a sexy vixen in these, ready to take on the world. They are loaded with power and style. The caged back and sleek vamp give this classic black bootie extra style and edge. The perfect black bootie for my collection.
ShoesTweet says: Get in touch with your inner Dom in these...or, just play tough in the streets and ready to be taken in the sheets ...

Talei-Paper Fox $29.98 (shoedazzle.com)


Edgy, sexy, and totally rocker chic. These amp up the cold winter days and make you feel hot!!! I'm totally falling for this bootie you can nab on shoedazzle.com. I'm in love with the metallic look and feel to the color. It adds a subtle BAM to your outfit and I am for sure sold!! These scream for my feet to be warmed up by their hotness!

There are so many more styles to choose from to fit anyone's tastes on any of these amazing websites. There are always deals to look for, especially now during the holiday shopping season. Whether you are shopping for yourself or finding the perfect gift I guarantee you will find what you are looking for at a price that will leave you smiling and excited just like me!!!

Holiday Shoes

                                                                     
                                                                     
                                                                     
                                             


Winter is slowly creeping up and with Halloween out of the way, the holiday season
is quickly approaching. Holidays mean parties, events, and get togethers. We all struggle with finding a the perfect holiday shoes for these functions. I dress to impress anywhere I go especially events and parties so I base my ensemble around my shoe, so my shoe is the hit of the outfit.

This season, I have noticed that cut outs and peep toes have become a hit. I know what you all are thinking, it's getting colder and rain and snow are starting to make appearances. I still think we shouldn't have to ignore these amazing styles during the holiday season. Don't be afraid to rock a pair of cut outs or peep toes. I have found some eye catching heels that will have you chomping at the bit. They are all inspired by the cut out and peep toe style I feel we should embrace for the holidays. Throw caution to the wind and enjoy these amazing styles!!


  I feel like these just scream holidays at me. The black satin gives them an elegant sleek look. The rhinestone embellishment on the t-strap dress them up and make them great for any holiday event. Chic look gives them function and fashion, you can dress them up or dress them down. I always look for a shoe I can wear with most anything and be able to wear them to many different occasions. I feel like these do it for me and would love to have them in my shrine!
ShoesTweet says: These shoes SCREAM sex to me... so flirty, fun, and maybe a bit naughty.  Love them.



Omg!!! I am head over heels right now, I'm going to have a shoe heart attack! This is the perfect party shoe for me. They add fun and excitement to the evening. They aren't your traditional holiday event or party shoe, but who says we have to be traditional all the time?! I like standing out and making statements with my shoes and these totally do it or me. These add spunk, flare, and edge to the holidays and I dare, yes I dare!!!



Style, class, sophistication, and elegance!! I love this shoe, you can get lost in them just looking at them. What an exotic piece of work. I would, for sure, hit my parties and functions for the holidays in this gorgeous heel, no doubt. It's guaranteed to be a hit everyone would be talking about. I love the design of the swooping black suede straps and the stunning white snake leather. I think I have fallen in love again!!


I love Michael Kors, his shoes never cease to amaze me. He has a niche in bringing out the inner woman in each design. This sandal bootie is no different. This is holiday glam at it's finest. Screw cold weather this booty was made for my feet. I can't get over the caged design and the gold studs on the vamp. It's a party shoe I can't live without. It's one want added to my collection!



I could not tear my eyes off these sassy babes. Of course I love red so they instantly caught my eye. The bow and peep toe bring out the ultra girly girl side and the red patent makes the shoe pop. They will stand out and catch everyones eye. Cute, sexy, sassy, and gorgeous...I NEED THEM!!!!!!!
ShoesTweet Says: These shoes are also ALL about sex. The red begs for attention, the bow draws your eyes to toes no doubt adorned in holiday-themed polish.  Holiday shoe perfection!

The holidays are the time to get glam and bring out your ultra fashionista. It's the time for fun and excitement, let your shoe be your guide!!

Ballet Heels

 
I was talking to a shoe friend one day and she inspired this post on ballet heels.

Since I first saw them I have been back and forth about them. They are for sure a fashion statement and really cool looking, but also ugly and crazy at the same time. I feel like they have kind of grown on me in a way, I know it's werid lol. My shoe friend wears them to work and no she isn't a stripper.

 I don't know that I could wear them out anywhere if I were to invest in a pair. I would be worried about the damage to my feet or literally breaking my ankle. I definitely would have them in my closet to add to my collection and maybe bust them out during a sexy night with that special someone to spice things up a bit. (ShoesTweet Says: These could be very hot and spicy in the bedroom)

 These heels, I can't lie, are very eye catching and the more you look at them the more your curiosity goes wild. My shoe friend encouraged me to get a pair and learn to walk in them. I'm still pondering the idea but they are really fun to look at. I have found a few different takes on the ballet heel I thought were pretty interesting to say the least. Some are over the top and some are just cool.


These are over the top and insane but I have to say they are kind of cool looking. I for sure wouldn't invest in these and wear them out but I think they would be cool to see on the runway. They have an art feel and would take someone really brave to walk in them. It would be like walking on stilts in these!

  Ok you might think I'm crazy but I kind of like these. I don't know if I would wear them but the more I stare at them the more interesting they become and the more I start to really like them.
ShoesTweet Says: These actually seem vaguely wearable and mildly interesting. Bravery required? Yes!

 
I think these are such a beautiful ballet heel. Very tall and very scary looking but beautiful at the same time. I would be interested to see someone walk in these. They have the original ballet flat look but with a heel that is ultra high and insane!
ShoesTweet says: These are beautiful, but essentially un-wearable. Unless you are lying down.


 
Mary Jane I saw these and thought, "Ok here we go a pair I could actually see myself wearing!". I think these are the perfect ballet heel to learn how to walk in them. The height is just right for someone learning and they aren't too over the top so you could actually wear them out.
