Pumps And Gloss: Fall Luxury Shoe Picks

The summer will be over before you know it, so it is time for us to focus on Fall fashions.

You know that shoes are loved on this blog (hence the first part of the name) 😉  Joyful Radiance and I always send each other Neiman Marcus links for shoes that we love and adore, yet cannot afford…well, if we want to be homeless and not pay our mortgage, we could get them LOL.  Anyhoo, Christian Louboutin is one of our favorite shoe brands.  Each season, he comes out with some gems that we drool over.

Here are our Fall 2008 Luxury shoe picks:

The first pick is the Open-Toe Passementerie Pump.

The detail on this sexy pump is exquisite.  The word “passementerie” meant lace in early French, but now means designs made from silk cords (braiding) or bead work. I can see the design on a lamp shade and draperies.  The red color is very festive.  A definite 5 out of 5.

This rouge, pleated satin pump is the hotness!!  I would not have to wear these shoes.  I would put them on a pedestal and gaze upon them all the day.  I would pair with an updated sheath dress in Royal Violet. (So First Lady!!) 🙂

Spring is Springing

I do not mind cool weather, I just do not like cold weather. I swear that this winter has been the coldest on record. (probably not) 😉 I am totally looking forward to Spring.  Spring time is pedicure season, which means SANDALS & PEEP TOE PUMPS!!!

Christian Louboutin always keeps his shoes interesting. I am curious who was the inspiration for this shoe: a silver lace-up slingback. I do not think I would wear this shoe, but I am sure there are plenty of ladies out there that would.

I love green in most shades. These Nine West special occasion slingback in a medium green satin is adorable. The heel is 4.5 inches, therefore you must have beaucoup de confidence! I know Joyful Radiance will love this shoe. 🙂

Nine West also has a delightful leather kitten-heeled slingback in mid-tone green. I would pair this shoe with a classic sheath dress.

I want to give an honorable mention to Marc by Marc Jacobs Purple suede peep-toe pumps with silver stones. My friend, Renita, loves purple and would want these shoes badly. I love the classic yet chic look.

I love the shimmer and shine of it all. My favorite of the season:

Stuart Weitzman Luxury Evening Sandal. I have a couple weddings to attend this summer and you might see me rocking these captivating sandals. I do not think these shoes are made for walking, so you may not see me wearing them on the dance floor.

Are you all looking forward to Spring?
