Following suit with a blog post I did a few months ago, it's time to revisit the good old shoes I hate & shoes I love list. As I mentioned, I do love a good shoe or two, hence the reason why I have compiled a list of my top favourite shoes of the mo' as well as spews of the mo'. You may notice that some designers feature in both the lust and loathe sections, which prove that you can't always trust a designer (par Balmain & Rodarte). Feel free to object my opinion on whether a shoe should be lusted for or loathed. Enjoy!
Lust-for Numero 1: Christian Louboutin Bang Bang Ankle Boot's
These aren't called Bang Bang boot's for no reason! I am completely lusting for this style of ankle boots right now. As Rachel Zoe would say "I die!". The elastic side reminds me of the old RM Williams boots, but in a completely new chic manner. Perfect for the upcoming Melbourne winter.
Lust-for Numero Two: Sergio Rossi Monochrome Platforms
I love the simplicity of these Sergio Rossi beauties! They remind me of 'My Fair Lady'. There has never been a more effective hue than black & white. These would be perfect for a city stroll or even better, paired with opaque tights for a winter night out.
Lust-for Numero Three: Fendi Bow Platforms
Another pair of simplistic shoes that would look stunning on absolutely anyone. These HIGH heels (capital H-I-G-H) would suit absolutely any outfit. Perfect to wear from work to after-work drinks.
Lust-for Numero Four: Christian Louboutin Salamanca Wedges
Although Summer is practically over, these wedges would have been perfect for strolling along the promenade. I love the way the rope offset's the black patent leather. Delicious!
Lust-have Numero Five: Miu Miu Black & Gold Pumps
Look away now if you dislike ugly shoes. Let us begin the count-down!
Spew-shoe Five: Chloe Ziggy Zaggy 80's Heels
Now I know the 80's are coming back in a big way with the latest collections, but these Chloe heel's are just wrong. A scalloped edge does not do wonders for the leg's! What's that American saying, you can't wear white shoes before/after Labour Day (or something along those lines)? What about we all don't wear these shoes 365 days of the year.
Spew-shoe Four: Miu Miu Blue Tacky Tack Tack's
Cork a no no! These Miu Miu platforms, despite the hefty price tag, look uber cheap. So cheap, it makes Supre look like couture. Oh Miu Miu, you were doing so well with the gold and black pumps (lust-have #5), why did you have to ruin it with these ghastly stilts. Tisk Tisk!
Spew-shoe Three: Chloe Chunky Platforms (Messy)
The funny thing is, the upper front of the heel is not too bad. The lovely leather lattice works a treat, but once you take a look behind. POW! Your hit by an ugly bout of 'chunky-itis'! If only the heel was elongated and refined, it would have been on the other side of this countdown.
Spew-shoe One: Segio Rossi Techni-coloured Nightmare Boot's
Introducing the ugliest shoe in the count down. There's just way too much going on with these Sergio Rossi boot's from a hyper-coloured hell. How many eel's (which I presume is the leather of choice) were killed to make such an ugly creation. R.I.P. To the Eel's that died in vain.
