The Booted Girl


Over-the-knee boots: STUART WEITZMAN
Leo mini dress: LIU JO
Shopping bag: CHANEL
Leggings: WOLFORD

I do like sexy, feminine heels. I have been looking for ages for a great pair of over-the-knee boots, probably one of the sexiest silhouette, but I couldn't find anything appealing, at least not too harsh, costing less than 1.000 EUR/1200 USD (i.e. these choos) and in my size. Finally in a recent business trip to Las Vegas, I found these slick Highland boots by Stuart Weitzman in gray, my fav color for this style, and in my size (it was a bit difficult to pack them in my flight back luggage, but a true shoe addict doesn't give up easily...). 

They have been some of the hottest boots for the last seasons, spotted by many notable bloggers and socialites such as Olivia Palermo, and continue to be a great style in my opinion, because:
  • their shape enhance the legs and is very eye-catching
  • they are edgy and very wearable because the light suede and "moderate' heels help to cool them down, reducing the "pretty woman" effect
  • the pretty thick heels make them easy to walk in
Few notes if you are interested to go for them:
  • they run half a size smaller
  • they are really comfortable and easy to walk with, thanks to the quality and softness of the boot leg and sole construction
  • you can wear them as hot as you want, from pretty sexy with bare legs and short dresses/minis to more casual and relaxed with skinny jeans or leggings.
Don't hesitate to ask me for any additional info.

A Tribute to Shoe Love

Saint Laurent Tribute sandals

I'm always in search of stylish and high impact heels: the higher the better... :-)  As monsieur Louboutin, I do think that high heels empower women in a way.

As my personal birthday gift, I decided to go for some scene stealers: Saint Laurent iconic Tribute sandals. I love their sleek shape and 70s glam (probably my favorite period in Fashion). They are a classic style, yet very trendy, platforms are actually hot again (with thin or thicker heels, as seen in the last run-ways).

I was a little puzzled about the color to choose: Tribute sandals are offered in multiple hues and materials (leather, patent leather, suede...). I didn't want to go for black (I already owns many pairs of blacks and I do think that colorful accessories can add a lot of interest to any outfit), I was tempted first by brown leather: it amplifies the hippy chic/70s vibes of this style, every shades of brown are next season hues and they are perfect for summer... but I like to wear my heels also at night, and   brown is better for days, in my opinion. So I decided to go for the white leather version, pretty delicate, but particularly elegant and more unusual. I'm planning to wear them next summer also in all-white* diva outfits, for instance matched to a white bodycon maxi-dress like the one I recently bought via Styligion.  Stay  tuned for more...

Other notes, if you are planning to go for a pair of Tribute: they run true to size, are very high quality and pretty comfortable for being some sky-high heels.

* White is my favorite color for summer and white/neutrals are pretty trendy too.
