Irregular Choice Shoe Party

by Jamie Sanford on September 5, 2011

I was introduced to Irregular Choice earlier this year when Gala Darling posted about their shoes after a trip to ENKWSA, a footwear trade show!  This is another brand that is serving a lot of fun color and texture, and none of the shoes in this post cost more than $200.  Let’s check out some standouts that I found on the IC website.

These are a whole season (summer, naturally) in a single shoe.  Ain’t What by Irregular Choice, $145.

I’ll tell you why I love these so much.  They DEFINE how I feel about black items being more than just black.  Look at the heel!  It’s a kitten heel, but the most interesting kitten heel you have ever seen. Drive in Movie by Irregular Choice, $155.

The Anglophile in me loves anything with a Union Jack.  These shoes fit the bill.  Patty by Irregular Choice, $120.

HOLY CRAP look at these.  I wear pants a lot, and I would find a skirt to wear with some dark tights if these shoes were in my life.  Not so much shoes for the office, but that are perfect for a fabulous night out.  Mayhem by Irregular Choice, $195.

Check out the entire Irregular Choice line here.  Which shoes are your pick?

Fluevog Munster Shoes

by Jamie Sanford on April 18, 2011

Fluevog shoes were mostly not known to me before a few months ago.  I saw an interview with a blogger who mentioned her trumpet-heeled Fluevog shoes and I started searching.  So I made my way to the Fluevog website and found these monsters.

They will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine. (Bonus points to anyone who gets that reference and leaves a comment.)

Excuse my incredibly blurry screenshot from YouTube, That’s Madonna, wearing the Fluevog Munster shoes in the infamous documentary Truth or Dare.

These are giant leather Pilgrimmy shoes and they have the most fabulous flared trumpet heel!

They’re a bit pricey at $319 but I would wear the hell out of these.  I don’t last long in stilettos but give me a bigger heel and I get to be taller and my feet last much longer.

The Fluevog Munster heels are available in black leather and purple suede for $319 from the Fluevog website.

Christian Louboutin Shoes for the Ages

by Jamie Sanford on February 11, 2011

Christian Louboutin shoes are really expensive. I am not rich. Therefore, it is unlikely that I will own many/any Christian Louboutin shoes.

But they’re so fabulous!

I nearly bought Christian Louboutin kitten heels for my wedding.  I couldn’t wear big heels because I didn’t want to tower over my husband who is only slightly taller than me, and they were black so I knew I’d wear them again.  I ended up not getting them because spending another $700 on something whilst in the crazy spending that comes with a wedding was not a good idea.

However, I’ve always thought that if I was going to spend this much money on shoes that I should pick something that I know I could use a lot, that would be fabulous but also would work in multiple areas of my life.  Work, play, etc.

So these are my new obsession.  These are the Christian Louboutin Metallic Watersnake Pumps.  The shape of the shoe is very classic, but the snakeskin texture makes it interesting.  The heel is only 3.25 inches, which is high enough to give you the benefits of the heel without being a 5-inch heel that will likely cause my death.

Unfortunately they are also $995.

I could buy the similar shoe in black, available for $595, and I know that these shoes are crafted not just made, so they aren’t just black pumps, but I’m not here for that. I want special shoes.

Can you even imagine this movie without those shoes?  Dorothy had special shoes and I want some too.
