Can you believe these gorgeous nude pumps are just £20 from Modcloth? They won't hang around at this price so if you do want them I would advise you get them while you still can (really sorry if your size is sold out when this gets posted).
I love the patent upper and the offset triple bow - so very chic! They look fantastic from every angle too - check out the heel!

This week's The Friday Luxe comes from Tabitha Simmons and the amazing Dee sandals in silver. Sadly they cost almost £1200, but they do make for fantastic window shopping!
These are most definitely red-carpet worthy heels, and I would imagine we will be seeing a fair amount of these. I wonder if they might just make an appearance at this year's Academy Awards on the 24th? They work with even the simplest of dresses as well.
Exceptionally elegant, plus they will look wonder under the lights too!

It's not every day you get to feature a pair of heels that appear to come with their own carrying handles. But if anyone was going to do it then JC was always a contender for the job.
The funny thing is, I actually rather like them.
I fear they might make my legs look like they had been cruelly planted into the ground, but I still believe they would be incredibly fierce with skinny jeans and a fringed jacket. Not for the faint-hearted.

I wanted to try to start off with a picture of these heels that made them look the most normal - but the issue with that is they don't really have a normal angle. The first picture if the best I could do. After that things start to go a little bit crazy...
That's right folks, these shoes have wings! I think the actual basic shoe itself is very nice. I like the square toe and the glossy black platform, and the colour of the midnight blue suede is oddly appealing. But why did they decide to give them wings?
It all just feels a little, well, unnecessary. They do have a gorgeous heel however.
Would you wear these shoes? They seem more like something a celebrity might wear on the red carpet than something to be worn in real life. Not that in a lot of ways they are particularly wacky or out there - they are just a little bit too odd to go shopping in.

Continuing the red theme, these tomato red suede heels are available at Net-a-Porter and are simply stunning. Loving the front fringing and the stud work.
They are undeniably sexy heels and would spruce up a LBD a treat. Of course they are not heels you want to walk about in all day long, but at least you will look pretty for parties!
They look incredible on, so let's take a look.
What do you think? Too much?

I am loving these cute double ankle strap heels from Alexander Wang. They are perfect Spring to Summer shoes - once we get past the rest of this cold and wet weather of course!
Aside from the obviously gorgeous fire engine red upper, I have well and truly fallen for these shoes because whilst they have a host of talk-about features, for me the thicker heel would make them very very wearable, and it'a always a joy to find a proper heeled sandal you can actually comfortably wear all day long.
Plus they look fantastically sexy on as well...

If you are a classic, timeless kind of a girl, then chances are you will rather appreciate these amazing flats from Tory Burch. Pacey features a very Chanel-esque monochrome colourway, trimmed in gold metallic, and is a very vintage looking flat.
Loving the patent finish and the attention to detail, they ooze quality and style. They really are the epitome of effortless chic.

For comfort with extra height you can't beat a wedge heel. If the wedge has some give rather than being wooden even better in terms of comfort and wearability. So these stunning Pedro Garcia crepe sole wedge ankle boots are pretty amazing and perfect as far as wedge booties go. They would look amazing with simple dressed down jeans or leggings, but also add a funky twist with flirty dresses or shorts. Personally I think they would make a wonderful match to a charcoal grey trouser suit.
They are just so so beautiful. Would you wear them? How would you style them?
They are half price too at the moment at ShopBop if you want to make them yours they will now set you back just £156, down from £310.

Jenni Kayne is a new name to Shoeniverse, and you can get a taster from Shopbop where these gorgeous minimalist heels heels are reduced less than half price to just £150.
The simple grey leather upper and the splash of turquoise on the heel really lifts these from just simple into very individual. Really beautiful.

If, like me, you are a huge fan of Alexander McQueen, then chances are you will appreciate these cute slippers from Jeffrey Campbell. I love the use of all over skulls in place of studs or spikes, and would definitely wear a pair of these.
What do you think? You can snap them up for £104 a pair at ShopBop.

From the front these look like any ordinary blue suede pump. They sport a comfortable rounded toe and slightly retro styling, while the suede colour is bright and vibrant. But when we get to the heels things start to look a little bit more exciting...
This is the side view.
Bu the quirks don't just stop there - Oh no! They also feature a strip of suede down the back of the heel.
I am not sure that I want to like them - they really are not terribly 'me' as far as shoe styles go, and yet here I find myself gazing at them and having to admit they really do work. If you are after an interesting heel that you can get away with wearing to work then these might just be just what you have been looking for.

The first featured flats of the week come from Le Silla, with these stunning sparkly laminated ballet flats. They feature a silver base and are literally covered in beautiful twinkling rhinestones.
Absolutely perfect for a sunny day - buy them now and keep them for when the sunshine reappears or take them with you to sunny climes!
They are now half price too - you can now snap them up for just £228.

These gorgeous citrus patent wonders are just what's needed to brighten up the twilight of another Monday at work coming to an end. I am normally a little apprehensive of brightly coloured patent as it can look a little bit tacky, but for the summer or a holiday these stunning bright heels would be just perfect.
As the above image shows the colour sings in an amazing way against neutrals. Pair with a slate grey simple shift dress or grey shorts and a white vest for instant holiday chic!

Really quick lunchtime sale alert featuring these gorgeously simple slingback heels from Stella McCartney. Varnished effect slingback pumps with elasticized gores and a rubber sole, they are of course not leather but they are now half price making their non-leather 'feature' less of an issue for those of us who felt the original just-shy-of £400 price tag was a bit steep for non-leather shoes.
You can pick them up at the official website now with all sizes currently available. Enjoy!

I thought I would kick off the first full week of February with something gorgeously glossy and luxe from Casadei. Naturally, hot pink peep-toe half d'orsay pumps are not the most practical footwear choice for a cold February Monday morning, but let's not let that get in the way of a bit of online window shopping!
These are seriously pretty little shoes. Want to see how they look when worn?
Pretty huh? Although the model here does look like her foot is crammed into them a little bit, no? They are not listed as having small sizing however, plus they are available in some of the half sizes too which should help you get your perfect fit. They are full calfskin leather too so they would give a little. I love the subtle little 10mm platform for just that little bit of extra height whilst retaining their classic sleek shape.
