DVF 1974 - Red Persephone Rope Wedges now just £38
Yep, next up on Big Sale Friday are these amazingly cute espadrille wedges from DVF, which are reduced from their original price of £153. Pretty amazing if they still have your size in stock!
Go get em!
STEVE MADDEN - Black Haterr now just £33
STEVE MADDEN - Black Outlast now just £33 too!
I thought it was high time we had a bit of a Big Sale Friday here on Shoeniverse, so what better way to kick things off than Steve Madden biker boots.
Whether you prefer flat or with a bit of a heel, there are studs galore, and if you just can't decide you can pick up both pairs for just £66 - they were originally over £130 per pair.

I don't really feel that my decision to feature the divine Aranea from Chrstian Louboutin needs any further justification than the pictures themselves! What a stunning pair of shoes!
Any time you can best describe a pair of heels as "being black matte satin heels with a cobweb of anthracite coloured strass stones" then you know they are something special. Add to that the fact that they are full d'orsay as well - surely Joan Collins would approve of these heels?
I believe that she would.

Shoeniverse had gone into Charlotte Olympia overload at one point so I have made a concerted effort to tone it down in recent weeks. I wanted to wait to feature the CO line when something truly special came along. Ladies, meet So Rose.
This sky-high sandal features contrast green leaf detail at the open toe vamp and a two-tone rose applique at the heel. I love the little rose on the heel, and these would make gorgeous heels for a garden party or a day at the races. Also extremely suitable for bridesmaids if these happen to match your wedding theme.

Yep that's right. They keep on getting better! I am unsure if U will ever tire of seeing what else they are going to add to this line.

Wait! There's more!
I think the top ones are my faves, but the grey pumps are also total heartbreakers!

I remember seeing these pointed Prop platforms at ASOS what seems like an age ago and promptly forgot to ever feature them on Shoeniverse. Oops! Anyway, here they are now, and guess what? They're now on sale too - reduced right down to just £25. They were originally £50 so it's a fab sale price if they have your size still in stock. As I wrote this they had everything still in aside from a UK 8 so they are worth snapping up if you like them. Perfect to add a vintage twist to 50's skirts and shift dresses.
I don't know if I would wear them personally but I do think they are incredible looking. Even with a pussy bow blouse and black jeans maybe?
For a wearable daytime into evening style? Just add these...

Some of you may have seen over at Facebook (or if you follow me on Instagram) that I purchased wedge trainer boots last week. These, albeit in the brand spanking new bright pink that's just in at Schuh... Here they are below.
They are actually super comfortable, and very very cool. I had been tempted for the past couple of months for a black pair, but now that I've found the far superior hot pink I'm glad I held off and waited.
The other colourway that also tempted me were this Liberty print version, and it will be a wise choice for some. My pink beauties set me back £85, but you can pick these olive wedges up for £50 at the moment (reduced from an original £96 price tag). To be honest I love the modern twist of the hidden wedge and would be happy to pay the full price, so at £50 these are a steal.

My love for Alexander McQueen designs is well documented here on Shoeniverse, and so it will come as no surprise to most of you that I let out an actual squeal when I first saw these heels.
Good GOD they are divine!
It's not just the glitter (although no word of a lie, the glitter does help) it's also the heel, the intricate cross straps, and the fact that they are just sheer 'sex on legs' jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Like, WOW.
I sadly am not destined to own them as they are on sale at a pricely £655, however if you have cash to burn and you want to add them to your shoe collection then you can pick them up over at Far Fetch now.

Billed as beige (but they look cream/ivory to me) I think that for the vintage loving lady these would make the most darling little wedding slippers. Outlined by shimmering satin and leather detailing, sweet dainty bows are embroidered onto the mesh upper for a forever-feminine look that's bound to capture hearts. Surely for the right bride these are amazing wedding shoes.
Take a closer look at the detailing and tell me if you have fallen in love yet?
If you want to make htem yours, or you know someone who would love them, you can buy them from Saks 5th Ave for £216.

I should have shown these sandals before, and I've tried - no really I have - but somehow when looking for them so many time in the past few weeks I've been distracted by something new and completely forgotten all about them. So now it's time to take a proper look at them because as you can see, they are actually pretty freaking fabulous.
For me, these are all about the metallic heel and the inline platform. Not that I don't adore the lush deep pink suede upper or the thick almost comforting looking cross straps, but the side view is really where it's all at for me. I expected a black gloss heel, or perhaps ever a semi transparent tortoiseshell affair. Even a wooden stack heel. But no, GZ loves to surprise us with a silver high shine metallic heel that simply demands all of your attention. If you don't believe me yet, just take a look at the shot below...
I love them. Sadly they retail at £520 and won't me winging their way into my shoe collection any time soon.

This is a fantastic little dress which you can grab over at ASOS for just £36. As it's very neutral it lends itself to lots of different looks too - a bit of a wardrobe chameleon for under £40? What's not to love?
So let's go ahead and style this for different looks and moods. There are probably hundreds of style and combinations that would work well with this gorgeous little dress, but let's take a look at my top three looks.
