Velvet Shoes – This season’s must have trend

The Fall/Winter 2016 season bring back a texture we seamed to forgot in the past years: the velvet. Everything this season will be covered in velvet, from dresses, to blazers and trousers, lingerie or chokers.  Misterious, sexy, glam and uber-trendy, the must have pieces of the season have at least a touch of velvet.

While the main problem with this texture is that it really needs to be high quality, otherwise it will probably look cheap – and we don’t want that , it also can make you look bigger than you actually are. So, to solve this issues and not give up on this lovely trend, I advice you to take a look at the velvet shoes on the market this season.

A pair of velvet shoes  is just the item you need to embrace the fall trends, but also keep your usual style in place. They are also versatile, so you can mix them up with any outfit of your choice, because they go perfectly well in the day and in the night, from casual look to super elegant ones.

I personally love the velvet sandals, I this they work best with this noble and elegant texture. On the other hand, I also love slippers and loafers, which I can mix with a pyjama set for a casual look. alexandre-birman

 

Of course you will find stilettos,  70’s inspired boots or over-knee boots, sneakers, all in velvet, you’ll be able to choose your favorite from a wide range of models.

In the end, because I’m really intro flats lately, I must show you this pair of velvet pointed flats by Paul Andres, in a perfect shade of dark blue. Aren’t they beautiful?

Anyway, whatever you will choose, I do advice you not to wear more than 1 piece of clothing in velvet in your outfit. It may look good on the catwalk, but It’s a little too much for every day life, no matter the occasion. Wear a pair of velvet shoes and mix it with denim, lace, silk, cotton, maybe even cashmere in the colder days, whatever you think it works for a stylish outfit.

PS: I think velvet shoes are here to stay, at least for the next 2 seasons so they just might be a good investment!

Dedicated sandals for a hot summer

You know how much I love shoes and for this reason, I am constantly searching for new shoe providers, new brands, new shoe artisans, etc.

I don’t always fit with standard shoes found in stores, not because they have a problem, but because my feet are sometimes in between numbers, the laces are to short or any other common reason. This is why I always tend to personalize my shoes, choosing the color I want, the heel, the laces.

It’s  been a month or so that I visited Gabriel Basso showroom, a new name for me, a brand that offers custom made shoes, for men and women. Continue reading

My shoes from Staccato

20131003_085758I think I told you about my latest obsession for this season? Well if I haven’t, then let me tell you I would only dress in black and white. Not all black, but black and white! And I will probably do it all season cause I only shop this kind of clothes.

To show you exactly what I mean, today I’m wearing a pair of shoes from Staccato (I got them last year) in – of course – black and white.

With a retro touch reminding us of the ’70s, with a high platform and a thick heel, they are my perfect companion for this  not so lovable weather. Continue reading

Neon shoes – part 2

P2_4

I was recently telling you about my new color obsession : neon shades.

This time, I’ll introduce you my second pair of neon shoes, that I’m absolutely in love with

If you read my blog, you probably already know the model, it’s the same as this one(sound like another obsession right? ’cause YES, I do buy the same item in different colors If I find just the right one).

So, I chose the color of this shoes, cause I really really wanted a special neon shade, not to bright, not to fade. It was the perfect one for what I was thinking about!

I wore them only once and managed to stay a couple of hours at the office wearing them. (for a first time, I think it’s pretty good).

Ce mi-a lasat Iepurasul la fereastra!

Orice Sarbatoare care aduce cu sine si prilejul de a primi/cumpara cadouri este un moment de care trebuie profitat din plin!
Sau altfel spus, un moment ideal de a achizitiona o pereche noua de pantofi!
Anul acesta am jucat rolul Iepurasului de Paste si am strecurat sub geam – locul traditional al cadourilor – cadoul ideal pentru mine : 2 perechi de pantofi.
Pentru ca a venit in sfarsit primavara , iar colectiile noi au aparut deja , nu am rezistat tentatiei. Desi planuisem initial sa imi cumpar o singura pereche, noua colectie Smiling Shoes pentru acest sezon m-a cucerit instantaneu.
Recunosc! Nu m-am putut abtine si am cedat acelui “coup de foudre” care m-a cuprins cand i-am zarit! Si asta a fost doar inceputul!
Veti mai auzi de mine! Si de ei!
Acum o sa fac prezentarile , dar va invit sa vizitati si site-ul www.smilingshoes.com pentru un Preview al colectiei de primavara vara ( va vand un pont -surprizele vor continua!!!).

Pentru ca am ramas in pana de pantofi fara toc, am optat pentru o pereche de balerini, personalizati in culorile dorite de mine.

Pentru ca o pereche de pantofi cu toc inalt nu putea lipsi, mi-am daruit si acest model senzational.

Ce parere aveti? :)
