I can’t write enough to speak all my love for this lady! Last night at the 2014 VMA’s she looked amazingly cool & confident as per usual, wearing those divine “Body Strass” pumps by Christian Louboutin with a hot pink & black colour-blocked sleeveless top & matching skinny pants from L.A.M.B.
Not one to ever use the term cray-cray, I think this silver over-the-knee scrunched boot from Gareth Pugh merits the term. More of a work of art than wearable boots, these are seriously out of this world, space-age freaky! Lady Gaga of the past would certainly approve. I know the 60s are back & all for Fall 2014 (as are OTK boots btw), but I think a form of the Chelsea Boot would have been a tad more appropriate for the coming season. Not to mention more commercial.
Absolutely stunning! After quite a few questionable fashion choices in the past few weeks, Rihanna totally nails it wearing Christian Louboutin white laser-cut “Impera” pumps & draped in a spectacularly slinky Helmut Lang fuchsia jersey dress, topped with perfect mermaid-like hair. The Balmain black/white striped clutch isn’t bad either!
The beautiful heels which I raved about are perfect with the double side slitted dress, showing the up-to-the-ankle lace-up detail perfectly. This celeb is certainly on fire. And she ain’t Katniss! Too bad this gem of a shoe is sold out, but here are a few options that might strike your fancy!

Everyone goes around oohing and aahing over every move Christian Louboutin makes & this tends to cast a very dark shadow over some much more stellar & gush-inspiring designers of high heels & shoes. And trust me, there are MANY lurking around in the aforementioned shaded area, designed by creatives who didn’t make a legal cafaful over a bloody outsole colour! Yes, pun intended. I mean what’s next, trademarking black sandals? The LBD? Yes, I’m still annoyed. Anyhoo, I digress…
Leopard Print Boat Shoes by LAMO Footwear
More often than not, I’m wearing flats & just like my high heels, they’d better be comfortable! Now, boat shoes have been all the rage this season when it comes to casual footwear, but I haven’t been the biggest fan until I spotted these sand-coloured canvas & leopard print shoes from LAMO Footwear, called “Cruiser“.
Now I have a history with this brand, reviewing these thong sandals & these red, beaded mocassins & all styles, including these leopard print boat shoes, are nothing short of extremely comfortable! Which comes as no surprise, really, as they do specialize in slippers & comfy boots. These particular leopard boat shoes have a great, cushy insole, steady rubber outsole & the unexpected vibrant leopard print just gives what is usually a dull-looking dowdy shoe, a bit of pizazz. Which, let’s face it, is what most shoeaholics look for when shopping for a new pair of shoes! These leopard print flats also come in a dark canvas/leopard combo & plain ‘ol canvas (for the more faint-of-heart). Perfect to pair with yellow-gold accessories, denim & neutral tones. Or all black. But that wouldn’t be very summer 2014 now would it?!
