TFNS - ZARA Black High Heel Shiny Shoe

Now of course these do not have the amazing little fishnet panels of this week's TFL post, but they are really rather amazing - and because they are from Zara they also weigh in at just £29. Enjoy!

TFL - CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Black Lagoula Tstrap Fishnet Red Sole Pump

These beautiful T-strap heels are from Louboutin - and yes they are practically perfect in every way.

I think that the little mesh panels are adorable - unfortunately they are rather expensive, but check back at 5pm for a more affordable option.

Grusanda Update! - CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Black Grusanda Glitter Bow Sandals

So the first (hopefully of many) new colours of Grusanda has surfaced, and far from being a usual nude or black suede or patent, I'm delignted to be able to show you this gorgeous black glitter colour.

They are quite simply the perfect dancing and party shoe. A shoe theat definitely wants to ensure that you have a very good time!

See below for my pick of equally sparkly and glittery black party dresses - because you will NEVER EVER go wrong with Loubies and a LBD.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Tirana Leather Mary Jane Pumps

Shoeniverse has a long standing love affair with mary jane heels. You can see a selection of them right here. It's probably one of my most consistently covered shoes, just because of their wearability and also it being such an iconic style. Whether it's a classic pointy toe number, an edgy fashion forward wedge, or a slingback twist on a classic, they always manage to fascinate me.

Tirana however might just be the pick of the bunch. I don't yet own a pair of full d'orsay mary jane heels, however this is clearly a hole in my shoe closet that needs to be addressed. These flattering little nude mary janes are simple and yet utterly perfect.

They also come in black...

Mix and match from the following for either colour.

Black Nico Halter-Neck Dress
Beige Mesh Flapper Dress
Multicolour Bambi Clutch Bag

Pretty in Pink - TOPSHOP Pink Sabrina Cup Heel Platform Shoes

Sabrina from Topshop reiterates how much the high street is learning from designer heels, and not only that but how well they are able to implement some of the features. The metallic cup heel, as seen on styles from Giuseppe Zanotti, can be found on the high street on heels like this that retail under £70. Pretty amazing. They are real leather too, as I'd expect for the price, and if you look after them they can be a statement pink heel for years to come. The heels are to-die-for. I am so very pleased they didn't choose to finish the heel in gold. The silver is cleaner, edgier and brighter to look at.

They are so neutral as to be able to be worn with just about naything, but here are my pick of the dresses to wear with these beautiful heels.

Gold Chiffon Overlay Sequin Dress
Black Colorblock Leather Sheath Dress
Black Colorblocked Jersey Sheath Dress
Grey Marled Drape-Back Mini Dress

In case the pink's too sweet for you, they do also come in black with a fabulous glossy heel too.

Perfect in Pink - CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Grusanda Satin Bow Sandals

For the few times that Christian Louboutin gets it wrong (and no, I've still not fully gotten over the flatform horror that is Calaclou) there are heels like this that do make us swoon and instantly forgive. Grusanda has instantly been given perhaps top place in my heart of Louboutin heels instantly although there are still some strong contenders such as Vampanodo and Noued. It's not that I don't LOVE the closed pumps, in particular Lady Peep, but rather that somehow the sandals are just too frivolous and delicate to ignore. Add this fact and Grusanda's sweet front bow embellishment to a deep pink upper and Samantha is well and truly in shoe heaven.

Seriously. Just look at them!

If you are feeling daring then the perfect eveneing outfit can be found by pairing them with this stunning cutout bandage dress from HERVÉ LÉGER.

Or go for sweet and girlie with this MARCHESA strapless number.

However you wear them, even with a white All Saints vest top and some good indigo jeans, Grusanda is definitely a standout Louboutin style, and one that I hope we'll see in a number of colours and finishes. I am holding out for a Swarovski crystal embellished Strass version. But for now enjoy the pink - and buy now if you want them. These will sell out.
