On Trend: Metal Heels

//Metal heels are nothing new, but these days it’s everywhere you look! Top designers from all over are incorporating metal heels into their shoe designs and the look definitely takes a shoe from ordinary to pow! The heel width can vary with some designs featuring an extra skinny metal heel that can give quite a “risky” look, while others showcase a more “wearable” feel.

Here are some examples:

//Piston Metal Heel Court Shoe – Found Here

//Christian Louboutin Big Lips 120 Calf Hair Pumps – Found Here


//Christian Louboutin Metallip 120 Suede and Metal Pumps – Found Here 

//Giuseppe Zanotti Leather and Satin Bow Sandals – Found Here


//Gucci Indian Jade Suede ‘Kelis’ Snakeskin Sandal – Found Here

//Colin Stuart for Victoria Secret  – Found Here 


I decided to try out the metal heel and purchased two pairs from Baker’s on Black Friday. They had an excellent sale so I took advantage of the discounts and walked away with these two beauties to add to my shoe collection:

//H by Halston ‘Rachel’ – Found Here


//Wild Pair – I can’t seem to find these on the Baker’s website, but they may still be in local stores.


I haven’t gotten a chance to wear either yet, so we shall see how my ankles hold up! 🙂



It’s All About the Boots!

//It was actually chilly here over the weekend! (read=the temp. dropped a few degress below 70) and it got me thinking about winter and purchasing new boots! As I stated in the JLo for Kohl’s post, I want to get some over-the-knee boots this fall. So I’m in the process of doing some research and figuring out which ones to buy. Here are some ideas and pictures I came across for inspiration.
