Eclipse.

Ugly sneakers seem to be taking over the fashion world recently, but is it really any surprise when they look strangely cute and their thick soles make them appear both futuristic and old school all at the same time? Though this new trend may be hot, I like to pride myself on always being a major fan of sneakers in general (hello my unhealthy obsession love of Superga and platform sneakers), so I like to think I’m not exactly jumping aboard the bandwagon. But anyway. I came across these super cool sneakers a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love. Chunky, beautiful, and the stuff sneaker dreams are made of, what’s not to love?

Eclypse White Sneakers - STELLA MCCARTNEY

But like most things I absolutely adore, if only it weren’t for the £450 price tag. That said, does anybody mind treating me to these? 😉

Kyoto.

No, not the city, but the sock boot from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know what sock boots have been all the rage of late (i.e. at least for the last eighteen months); but despite their popularity it’s taken me a little while to get behind the style. In fact, when I first saw the shoe I absolutely hated it. it wasn’t until my sister got a pair that my thoughts started to thaw and bit by bit I started to see their charm. However, it wasn’t until last week (I think) that I came to the realisation that they weren’t all bad – I personally blame Sunmi who rocked the shoe during her recent promotions for her latest single, Gashina – and stopped hating them. Then, on Sunday I made an announcement to my sister that I wanted to get a pair myself, and as if by some kind of magic, about ten minutes later, I stumbled upon these beauties. Now obviously at £525 I’m not planning on buying them anytime soon, but I wanted to share my fashion epiphany and style inspiration.

      

So what do we think? Yay or nay?

p.s If I ever do go to Kyoto, you can sure that I will let you know!

Superga X Luisaviaroma.

Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!

    

And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!

Head Over Mules In Love.

It’s no secret that mules have become all the rage in recent months, much like it’s no secret that my love for the peculiar shoe is real (see posts here and here), so surely this post will not seem too out of the ordinary. A couple of weeks ago while updating my net-a-ports wish list, I came across these bad boys. Now, as much as I love me some mules, the heel has to be a particular height otherwise I’m not interested, but there was something about these Alexander Wang mules that grabbed my attention. Could it be the cut-out heel or the fabulous feather detailing? Or the fact that a few days prior I had found myself mysteriously mesmerised by Loeffler Randall’s low heeled sandals?

      

      

I’ll never know. But one thing I do know is that my love for mules is no longer height-biased.

Pigalles Follies.

How stunningly gorgeous are these pumps? When I first laid eyes on them it was like love at first sight. The mosaic like pattern on the shoes, that arch of the sole, and of course that seductive 5 inch heel height all had me falling head over heels. Despite their blue colour, to me these pumps look especially classic and as timeless as any plain black pump. What do you think?

      

And sure the Pigalles are said to be notoriously difficult, but they’re not all that difficult to look at are they?

Thigh’s The Limit.

So, I was minding my own business on net-a-porter (as I do), adding more items to my wish list, when I stumbled across a pair of Stuart Weitzman and Charlotte Olympia thigh high boots. While I’ve long bemoaned the fact that my short legs have prevented me from rocking and being comfortable in anything that goes over the knee, that hasn’t stopped me from (internet) window shopping and looking at a few pairs I would love to wear if I were a few inches taller – a few thousand pounds richer.

Aquazurra + Poppy Delevingne.

When I heard about this collection I got a little excited. For one, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Poppy Delevingne’s style; and for two, I (just recently realised this) LOVE LOVE LOVE Aquazurra.

After seeing how beautiful Aquazurra and Olivia Palermo’s collaboration was, I had high hopes for this new collab between Aquazurra and Poppy.

Aquazurra + Poppy Delevinge

I absolutely love heeled boots, even though I don’t think I have the body to pull them off so much (I blame my short legs), but these were too perfect for me not to share. These Moonshine suede boots are the perfect shade of brown for this winter season, and would also look perfect all year round – can you tell I think these boots are perfect?

Maybe one day I’ll have the courage to rock these, but in the meantime I guess I’ll to have make do with just looking.
