PRADA Pumps with open toe

I was browsing Yoox when I came across these timelessly elegant and utterly classy peep toe heels - these PRADA Pumps with open toe will cost £240 but sizes are limited so be fast!

They are delightful, I so wish I could buy them but my size is sold out!

Prada really understand simplicity of design, and these illustrate that fact perfectly. A classic colourway and a timeless shape that can be worn for years to come if you look after them.

Leopard wedge courts by Dorothy Perkins

Yes it's a hattrick of shoes from one store, but they earned it! I might not be the biggest over of leopard print shoes but I know they are very popular, and the wedge heel on these leopard wedge court shoes tends to tone down the 'slut factor' a little.

Reasonably priced at just £40 - DP really are on a roll with their shoes at the moment, you could do a lot worse than adding these to your collection if animal print is your thing.

Click here to buy them at the DP online store!

Delphina by KG Kurt Geiger

No surprise to see that a gorgeous pair of suede pink beauties caught my eye, these are new from KG Kurt Geiger - ladies, I am very proud to show you KG by Kurt Geiger Delphina. Click through to view these on the John Lewis website, price £110.

Check out the back view... too cute!

Rose slot through bow courts by Dorothy Perkins

Also new in at Dorothy Perkins are these adorable little rose slot through bow court shoes...

Not as high as most shoes I feature on Shoeniverse, but they look so sweet and wearable that they definitely deserved a mention!

They are also a complete bargain at just £35 and would make such dainty little shoes for work that I would suggest you click here to buy yours now!

Black toe cap metal heel court by Dorothy Perkins

When I saw these Black toe cap metal heel court heels on Dorothy Perkins website this morning i knew I had to show them off.

They are really lovely and fantastic value at just £42.

Satin Peep with Bow by Karen Millen

iconYes KM again - unusual for me - but they have some truly delightful styles in on their website at the moment that I just had to show you another.

These bow pumps are gorgeous.

The ice baby blue, and the huge oversized offset bow is just perfect for a summer occasion, even if thet's just sitting in front of the telly and watching the Olympics of London 2012, or going to a friends house (or your own back garden...) for a sun drenched barbeque.

They are just begging to become a part of my shoe collection, and I just know that these will be even more stunning in person.

They can be yours for £120.

What would you wear these beautiful shoes with?

As seen in Vogue - Leopard Pumps by Karen Millen

iconI am a very selective girl when it comes to leopard print.

I relegate it, rightly so, to just shoes and bags and even then only very occasionally.

Too often it looks tacky, or the shape it too clumsy and it just loses it's edge and any chance of finesse.

Karen Millen have done rather well with these however.

I would have preferred the heel to have been wooden or perhaps metallic (bronze?) but overall the silhouette is very sleek and the heels are extremely sexy. The omission of a platform means they are much more classic that here-and-now. Well played KM.

Click the image to grab yours from the Karen Millen website, where they will cost you £140.

Bicolour Leather Knee-High Boots by Aquazzura

Just when you think you have seen every iteration of a knee high boot, along come these from Aquazzura.

I am so in love with the quirky blue heel that I struggle to even find words.

The heels themselves are rubber, which again is an unusual twist to a full length leather boot, but again it's a good thing. This makes them interesting and different. It is a feature that I very much approve of.

And this story gets even better...

Now I do love black boots, they are a classic, a staple, a must have and a go-to, but just in case you preferred an earthy tone and maybe a different splash of colour then you have no need to fear because Sergio Rossi has well and truly got you covered.

They also come in a gorgeous rich chestnut brown, which features a bright emerald green heel. I die...

How beautiful are these?

Click the top image to visit the Saks 5th Ave website and make them yours for £671.35

A bright-colored heel revitalizes this classic tall leather silhouette.

Rubber heel, 4¾" (120mm)
Shaft, 17½"
Leg circumference, 13½"
Leather upper
Pull-on style and ankle strap with a metal-tab closure
Leather lining and sole
Padded insole
Made in Italy

Which colour do you prefer?

Black Grained and Smooth Leather Grip Sole Boots by Sergio Rossi

iconBe still my bootie loving shoe fairy heart!

These gorgeous calf high boots from Sergio Rossi are new in at Stylebop, and everything about them is simply spot on. Could there be a more stylish way to see you through a rainy day?

The deep platform should make them easily wearable, and they would look beautiful with skinny jeans and a short belted trench coat.

They are £552 - so if you are in the market for a quality pair of designer boots for the coming months, click the image to buy them now at Stylebop.

Round toe, ultra-high front platform, chunky high heel, crisscross side detail with grommets, smooth leather upper with textured leather at ankles, pull-on style.

Grenade Satin Sandals by Carvela

I saw these in the new section over at Harrods, and thought I should bring them a little Shoeniversal love!


Loving the pin heel, the gorgeous encrusted heel and the slinky simplicity of the strap and front, all finished off in black satin. A truly timelessly elegant shoe.

If you would like to add them to your collection then click the image above now, and they can be yours for £130.

Bon Bon by Stella McCartney at Harrods

These just needed to be seen... sadly out of budget for me at £400 but just... wow!

Beautiful, quirky and utterly OTT, I do have a distinct weakness for this particular style, despite never really being much of a fan of Stella McCartney's designs.

Click the image if you are lucky enough to go buy them, or why not create a Polyvore set to show me how you would style these?

Studded Back Platforms from Select

Looking for the studded look on a budget? Then look no further than Select. They are a regular black platform pump from the front, and then the back is slightly more... interesting.


See? Very cute, bang on trend and yours for just £18 - the perfect bargainista find! Click above to get yours now!

Tamsyn by Head Over Heels

I always look a season ahead as well as what to wear now, and these sweet blue ankle boots caught by eye whilst browsing on Shoe Studio.

The side bow is huge and very look at me, as is the vibrant shade of blue - who could resist? If you would like to make them yours then head on over to Shoe Studio (just click the image above) and they can be yours for £65.

Features an almond toe, zip fastening and a slim heel.

Black Rock Stud Leather Boots by Valentino

I am just going to post a gorgeous huge image of these and let you all drink them in because these boots are completely beautiful and amazing, and also sadly very much out of my price range.


They are right up there with any of my other all-time favourite pairs of boots and I am simply in awe of how incredible they are.

If you are a very VERY lucky lady and you can make them yours then head over to where you can buy them for £748 - click the image to go shopping!

Shoeniverse on Pinterest

If you are not already following on Pinterest you are missing out - not on just the thousands of shoe images but also on other interests like food and fitness.

Dhirl by Dune

iconThese are new in on the Dune website and I am rather fond of a bit of glitter around lunchtime...

The heel is quite sturdy and the concealed platform pairs with this to give what is actually a deceptively high shoe.

I adore them, and would love to pair them with skinny jeans and take them shopping with me.

If you love them too they can be yours for £85 - click the image to see more and buy yours now!

Wanda by Badgley Mischka


Love these, available in three colours at Bloomingdales.

As well as the peach shown, they also come in a pretty lilac-blue (blue nile) and white.

They are also half price in the sale - down from £174.22 to just £87.11 - the white would make perfect bridal shoes, or perhaps the other for something blue, or the peach for the bridesmaids?

JuJu by Lipsy

I found these over at Shoeaholics and they seemed the perfect way to kick off the first evening of the week.

Deliciously girlie, beautiful detailing on the heel and a huge great big bow on the front too. Love them!

Click the image above to visit Shoeaholics and buy yours now! They are just £80.

Find me in the Next Summer Sales...

The Next Summer Sale has a lot of footwear bargains, and as we have come to expect from this long established high street staple, there are plenty of bargains to be found.

I have selected my top picks but remember, sizes are sometimes limited so be aware and if you see something you want then click through to check stock availability. At these prices I would doubt these styles will be around for long.

The gorgeous citrus wedges are a fantastic summer staple and can be yours for just £20. Their shape is elegant and leg-lengthening, and whilst they do sport a peep toe, given the summer of 2012 in the UK they should provide enough shower protection should you need to dash for the nearest cover!

The silver mirror finish slingbacks are just a gem and if you are quick you can snap yours up for just £14!

They ooze celebrity and Hollywood, so if you have an evening event upcoming and want to add a little glamour to your LBD, you need look no further than these. To me they are stunning, as you all know how much I adore my metallics and especially silver shoes.

Simple classic and timeless, at a price that's just too good to miss!

To view all my favourite Next sale shoes then visit their online store, and if you buy something let me know in the comments below. What's your pick of the sale bargains?

Harlow by Stylistpick

Now for something slightly more wearable, but still gorgeous and very pretty. Meet Harlow...


Harlow from Stylistpick are just £38.00 - and can be bought by clicking the image above. They are also available in black.

I really like the mix of nubuck with metallic, and the toe cap saves what could otherwise be just another pair of high street pumps. On trend but not flashy, these shoes are quietly definitely very cool indeed.

Unze London Ultra Glam Sandals

Some early morning sparkles to brighten up a Monday morning are in order.

These flashy babies are over at and can be yours for £129.95 - click the picture to buy them now.

These glamourous shoes are drizzled in diamantes and feature an open toe, multi strap crisscross design to the front, zipped closure to back with a high platform the front and a stiletto heel.

Happy shopping, and even if Mondays will never sparkle, doesn't mean that your shoes can't!

It's Time to Shine - Winning Metallics from Nine West

I love metallics, especially silver, and so whenever I see a metallic trend from a store then it's always good to give it a bit of a feature.

The metallics currently in store at Nine West are really gorgeous, and for the first time I might just have to sneak in a couple of accessories too! Don't worry this is and always will be a shoe blog!

The shoes (and gulp, accessories!) featured in this post are priced from just £30 - and if you want to take a closer look then just click on the image to visit the product page directly.

Metallics are hot business this summer - which one is your favourite?

Although the little silver sandals do have a slightly too-thick strap, I adore the rest of the shoe, and this would probably only prove to make them even easier to wear given the heel and platform. These are my very favourites and can be yours for £125.

It's time to shine in winning metallics! This sporting summer we're loving gold, silver and bronze and these are our top picks! Race you to the checkout...


There are also lots of bargains to be had in the Nine West sale - click below to go shopping now!

The Lady Killer by Iron Fist

I know their designs are not everyone's cup of tea, but I find myself strangely enchanted whenever I meet Iron Fist shoes in person - one thing they downright refuse to be is ignored!

With that in mind I would like to turn your attention to the Lady Killer:

Gosh, they are so very cute. I do love them and I would wear them. The Lady Killer peep toe features a manmade upper decorated with a pink corsage and green bow at the back. A 2.5cm platform supports the slender 11.5cm heel. Pretty but still packed with attitude!

Plus the bows are unexpected but utterly in-keeping with the rest of the shoe.

I love them -and if you do too then click the image above to visit the Schuh online store where they are new in - and can be yours for £65 with free delivery!

Esme by KG Kurt Geiger

I am not yet done with the fantastic 'Super' collection from Kurt Geiger, also catching my eye - and probably the ones I would buy most out of the collection, is Esme in pink, and they will cost you £160.

They are so cute and a little bit naughty as well - I simply adore the mix of candy bubblegum pink alongside gold studs and a heel that could probably literally kill. Amazing.

But there are more colours too - click any of the images if you want to visit the official online store and make them yours!

Eris by KG Kurt Geiger

I met these and the rest of the collection in person at Gatwick airport recently when I was jetting off for a week in the sun. Let me tell you, all the colours, even the ones that look a little 'out there' on screen are absolutely gorgeous when you met them in person.

You will see where I am going with this when I point out that the yellow and silver option is the tame style out of the bunch...


Eris, incidently also comes in tan. Sounds normal enough, right? Hmm, see these are my favourites actually, but I picked the yellow to ease you into it.

Here's why:


I know they do look perhaps too much on screen but I promise you they work in real life and would look amazing with just a white tee and dark skinny jeans.

Click either image to buy - they cost £190.
