I love sneakers and I think they have been an awesome trend… my feet are grateful to have had a breather from heels for the season. For Spring, wedge sneakers are stepping aside in favor of studded, embellished sneakers. Here are a few of my favorites:
YSL Malibu Sneakers, 550
Frye Kira sneakers with gold studs, 188
Steve Madden Twynkle Sneaker, 100
Kelsi Dagger Kilee sneaker with silver studs, 90
miu miu sneakers with studded toe cap, 495

More chic than a ballet flat, more feminine than an oxford… I am really into smoking flats this Fall.
Del Toro offers everything from glitter to skulls to stars and other patterns, and has a custom monogram option as well.

Shoe genius Christian Louboutin has finally made all of our princess dreams come true with a pair of limited edition “glass slippers”.
The “glass slippers” are not for sale – the limited 20 pair run will be given away in conjunction with the re-release of Disney’s “Cinderella”. They are made of a delicate white lace and covered in Swarovski crystals with butterfly accents;.
“I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world,” said the designer.
Are they what you had imagined?
In case you aren’t one of the twenty lucky ladies to score a pair of the shoes (my heart is crying imagining a five year old wearing them around the hosue to play dress up), here are some suitable alternatives that are still made for a princess, maybe even a queen.

Crushing hard on this recent entry via the coveteur, featuring Heidi Gores. Who is Heidi Gores, and how does she have so many amazing shoes? She is one of the founders behind Pressed Juicery (Brentwood, Malibu and now in We-ho). Regardless, I love a clean white closet as it is the perfect background for showcasing a beautiful wardrobe.

The wedge sneaker was more of a hate for me before it was a love, I just didn’t quite understand it. I love Isabel Marant, but the clunkiness (and the price) of the sneaker threw me for a serious loop.
Until I went to New York. These are the perfect Saturday afternoon shoes with leggings and a great tee or jacket… check out some of my favorite street snaps of ladies working the sneaker trend correctly. Gisele is my favorite, she can do no wrong – obviously!
The Isabel Marants are still a little spendy for a trend that I don’t think will last more than a few months, but these Ash sneakers have become my new favorite.

My NYC based girlfriend picked up a pair of Steve Madden wedge sneakers a few weeks ago… I have been google stalking them ever since to no avail. I was about to give up until tonight, when their Olympia version was right there. Click, click, ordered!

Favorite shoe grouping I have come across in a while – these Jeffrey Campbell rock and roll inspired shoes. Complete with a great shape, studs and just all around sexy vibe, I need any of the below on my feet immediately!

It’s no secret that I am an official spring-junkie. I get an adrenaline rush the first time I slip my feet out of motorcycle boots and into the perfect pair of summer sandals. The thought of wearing a white sundress gives me goosebumps. Mojitos, days by the pool, getting a tan somewhere besides a tanning bed… don’t even get me started, I may cry!
I don’t really care to shop for winter, I feel like I always end up in all black, but spring is another story. That explains why, on this rainy LA day, I am lusting over these perfect summer shoes. Nordstrom has really been killing it with their assortments recently – I love that they are showing everything from Jimmy Choo to Jefferey Campbell on the same shoes page. It’s the perfect way to shop, because I think most women will buy from both pricepoints. Lusting over the following (via nordstrom.com)…

Hope these help get you through a rainy day! xx
Cute now with a black cocktail dress and perfect for spring with some skinnies and a bright silk tank, and at half the cost of the original brian atwood line… such a win! They are only python “embossed”, but still beautiful! Tall enough to be sexy but they look comfortable enough to be reasonable… I’m about to add these to my shopping cart!
