Finishing off the week with these super cute little panda bear flats from Modcloth - a Stroke of Genius indeed! Would you wear them?
Enjoy the weekend shoe fairies and I'll see you on the other side!
I found these oxblood heeled boots from Nasty Gal this weekend past and they have shot straight to the top of my boot wishlist. They have successfully managed to supercede even the All Saints Hessian tall boots and Manifest boots in grey that I was after. I went to see both of those at the weekend and was really disappointed at how structured and hard the leather was on both of those considering the £200 price tag. So now we have these spearheading my lust list!
Just look at those cute little almond toes!
All finished off with a sumptuously glossy heel and a stocky black stack making them sturdy and wearable too. Can I have them now. Birthday coming up and all that *hint hint*
Just because there's been a very thinly veiled theme of fetish to a few of the choices this week, I thought I may as well go ahead and show you these. I think they would work very well with high end traditional clothing too BUT they really are making me want to make a mildly steampunk Femme Batman Cosplay just so I have an exscuse to wear them and really show them off. They are just beautiful.
I wouldn't personally wear them with a long skirt (but then I technically don't own any...) but this picture does show off their versatility, which is always a big decision maker for me when choosing a pair of investment boots.
The open zip detailing right around the sole and back of the heel is simply to die for. *Be still my heart*
Buy them now or regret it later!

I though that the Brian Atwood heels were verging on fetish wear on Tuesday, but I can now see the pattern emerging for Winter 2013/14 - and I must say it's rather exciting. Take a look at these stunning little platforms from masters of seduction Agent Provocateur, and tell me - have you ever before seen a sexier heel? They look to be created by Charlotte Olympia, judging from the inlaid platform shape and the little spider web logo on the sole. Who knew the Queen of Quirk could be so very sexy?
Love them! It's my birthday soon too! *busily makes a wishlist*

Killer biker boots are always a top priority for me when it comes to getting ready for Winter. As I've covered so many times before, I love me a biker boot, whether it's with a pair of oiled skinny jeans or a pretty little All Saints hitch skirt. They can do no wrong for me and are a true wardrobe staple. These have that beautifully aged and worn look, scuffed right out of the box, for an instant vintage feel.
Perfect for winter and will see you through Spring showers too.

Perfection in a boot is a rarity, but these stunners from Brian Atwood who share a name with a rather famous Jimmy Choo heel are definitely just about perfect to me. Edgy but still feminine and sexy, and with a killer heel. I love the platform too. Just a hint of fetish. Never a bad thing for a lace up ankle boot.
How would you wear them?

It's no real shock that sooner or later I had to give in and feature the resurgent Nike Blazer trainers here on Shoeniverse. The thing was, waiting for the perfect pair. My son has a crazily beautiful pair I had imported from the USA, but trying to find a girl's pair that I loved as much as my bright pink Nike Sky Hi's was proving problematic.
Then, this weekend past I found these.
I still, being the heels loving girlie that I am, prefer the feel of the hidden wedge of the Sky Hi - BUT - in terms of bright pink goodness I will have to snap up a pair of these. They are stunning.
Do you wear retro trainers? What's your favourite colour for Nike Blazers? I love to wear high top trainers with leather leggings and lace top ankle socks - would you wear that?
