Foot Support.

Today we welcome a few more shoe collections into our wish lists.

supra

Here we have the Supra NS Pony Hair & Wildlife Pack. We all know that I am anti-sneaker, as I try my best to mention with each of these posts, but these could actually get my money. Most specifically, the ones pictured bottom-left in the picture above. I mean who can pass up exotic animal hairs. The ones top-right are made with pony hair, and being that I have a pair of pony haired sneakers I’d recommend them to everyone…they’re just so exclusive. Check out more pics below and purchase them at Factory 413.

Daily Addiction: Lace.

diego

Ladies, here are today’s sexy shoes. These are the Lace-Up Jeweled Heel Sandals by Diego Dolceni. They are very sexy, yet classy and are the perfect shoe for a cocktail affair. The shoes do a lot, so I would recommend a classic silhouette on top. They are for purchase at LUISAVIAROMA. Check out more pictures below.

Fellas, today I’ve found a nice boot.

aki

The Tan Leather Ankle Boot by Aki Choklat, fastens with a long leather lace that threads through the front of the shoe twice and wraps around the ankle to tie. The boots have a rounded toe and are perfect for either a boot cut or straight leg jean. The boot can also be paired with a khaki-like slack or short. The possibilities are endless. Check them out for purchase at FarFetch.com.

Me Like.

finsk

Here are the Gold Fish Scale Sandals by Finsk. Ladies…what will it take for me to see your shoe game get like this?? If it’s money you need, go take out a loan. If it’s the fact that you’d just rather not spend so much money on a pair of shoes, just think of it as a one time deal. But if you just don’t think the shoes are for you, or are just too afraid to take the risk…CHICK MAN UP!!! Theses shoes are amazing and if I was shacked up right now, my girl would def be sporting them. Check them out for purchase at Oak.

Python Strikes Back.

nicholas

Here are some suede, with python cut-out, booties by Nicholas Kirkwood. These shoes go. Any chick wearing these could def compete with ANY chick wearing Louboutin’s in my book, and Lord knows I’m a sucker for Louboutin’s. But for those of you that can’t quite afford to go out and drop money on these or a classic  pair of ‘Loubous,” just give it a couple of months and you’ll see this design in a more affordable designer’s collection. Will you have python included in your’s?? Probably not, but you will be able to say you own knock off Nicholas Kirkwoods. lol

I LOVE SHOES!!!

clae

Not too long ago I introduced you guys to Clae Footwear with their Spring 2009 collection. Well here is their Fall 2009 collection which, in my opinion, is a step back. This time they seem to have gone a little more standard with the designs and little deeper with the colors. I’d still wear a lot of the designs though. Check them out.

Fashion Tips for the Ladies.

February is quickly coming to a screeching halt, therefore it’s time to begin purchasing spring and summer fashions. Guys, not to long ago I gave you some tips on what to buy and now I must cater to my beautiful ladies. As a man there are a few things I love to see my woman in, but there are also things that I can go without. From dresses to handbags and flats to heels, there’s a plethora of possible fashion-do’s and here are a few. (This is strictly a suggestion on what I feel can become this year’s trends, so take it or leave it.)

Dresses

It can’t be spring or summer without you owning AT LEAST two dresses; a bright, airy and fun dress and a more sophisticated, neutral and sleek one. If you shop at Urban Outfitters you are guaranteed to find one of each, if not more. The first dress pictured is a MINKPINK Tank dress that gives off a two-piece look which is always great. It can be worn as seen above or paired with a light cardigan or jacket to give a more sheek look. Next there’s a more western-vibed dress by Thistlepearl, an independent Australian line. When worn with a pair of cowboy boots and a pearl necklace, you can wear this on a night out with the girls or to you and your boyfriend’s favorite restaurant. If the first pair doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s the more outgoing approach with the dress from Ecote. You would definitely be the center of attention with this dress, whether you’re in class, at lunch or hosting your own suare. All it needs for a little spice is a fitted fedora and your favorite pumps. If you’re a girl that likes to be on her grown woman, is usually in an office atmosphere or just wants to try something new, the Urban Renewal Secretary Dress is a great choice. Made from a vintage secretary bow blouse, at the top, and vintage fabric remnant, at the skirt, you will once again be giving a two-piece look while not having to worry about if your blouse will continually escape from within. All you need to throw this look off is a clutch, some black stockings and some open toe booties.

Handbags

As an avid blogger and shopper I have come across a lot of different things over the past few months, but there’s one thing that has stood out to me. PYTHON!!! Yes, like the snake. I remember in the late 90’s when women rocked the reptile family like there was no tomorrow. The difference between then and now is real opposed to look-alike. Unfortunately, python costs a pretty penny and Saks Fifth Avenue didn’t attempt to cut down the MSRP. With designers such as Gucci, JALDA, Zagliani and Ferragomo you’re looking at prices from around $1500-$3500. Fortunately, there are purses that may not be fully python but have the detailing starting at $360 which sounds a little more reasonable. If that’s still out of your grasp I’d recommend Bag, Borrow or Steal, a great rental service for your favorite accessories. I know you’re probably thinking “that sounds really low-budget” but just imagine carrying the latest, hottest bags for an amazing price. From hobos to satchels and totes to clutches, your handbag is what can make or break an ensemble so choose wisely, and try and go for at least one python oriented bag this season.

Girl's Shoes

Last, but certainly not least, is footwear. Before I begin I must say JESUS/GLADIATOR SANDALS ARE NOT IN, THEY WENT OUT WITH ANCIENT ROME. Now, I love to see my lady in both her flats and heels. Online store, Opening Ceremony has just the right styles for this spring and summer. For you ladies that are into the gladiator shoes you don’t have to totally stray away from that ideal with the peach W8 Desert Sandal. With a buckle strap, you can pair this with some slim trousers and a nice blouse for a more professional look. Or you can go a little more casual with the red W4 Gladiator Oxford, which takes a gladiator-inspired body and adds a twist with an oxford lace-up. With a nice skirt or summer dress you can give these shoes the all important “it” factor. Now, we all know that the fashionable chick can’t go without a bomb pair of pumps in her wardrobe.The W5 Flap Shoe gives you an oxford styled heel that can be worn both casually and for a more dressed up look. Finally, we have the W6 Elastic Heel which gives a strictly sophisticated shine. It is the epitome of cool; both cooling in the warm climate and a look that gives you many cool points.

I hope that these tips have been both entertaining and informative. I hope to see some of you around campus sporting these looks and becoming one of our Fashion Guru’s of the week. Please leave feedback and even give me some pointers on what you KNOW a girl can’t go without being that you truly are one.
