Suede Sole Sistas

My Dear Brunch and Pumps readers, PLEASE FORGIVE ME!! My time away from this blog was unintentional and waaaay longer than I expected.

I’m returning today with a newfound theory: Suede isn’t just for the Fall.

Pictured here you see two of my favorite pair of suede shoes.

The pair on the left is a gray suede spiked ankle strap pump by GUESS with a metallic heel. The pair on the right is a deep fuchsia/purple tie-up bootie with a collar back and gold detail.

 

What I love about both pairs is that they can be worn to match an outfit, or as a statement piece or add color-blocking detail.

I’m sure I’ve written about one or both pair before, but I felt they were worth mentioning again as I’ve been wearing them a lot this winter despite the snow here. Sure, it takes a little extra planning, but carry a shoe bag with you to your destination and pop on your suede soles to add some spice to your outfit!

Like/comment on this post if you want me to show a few pics modeling these shoes!!

“ShoesDay” Edition: The RockStud

I’m sure most of you are thinking that when it comes to upscale shoe designers I’m partial to Christian Louboutin. Well, you are correct. However, today I’d like to discuss a popular shoe designed by the famous Valentino. The shoes name? RockStud.

I’ve seen many celebrities wearing this shoe, and there are numerous imitations of this shoe at various retail stores. The shoe comes in various colors, but the design is constant- pointed toe, studs across the top of the shoe to enclose your foot, and studs on the ankle straps to secure your foot in the shoe.

Here’s the kicker: I don’t like the shoe.

No matter how popular it is, no matter how many times I’ve seen people wear them, I’m just not a fan.

Now in the picture below the shoe looks fairly decent on the foot. I guess it’s just that on some pictures I’ve seen, the person’s foot looks like it’s being swallowed by the shoe and the ankle strap looks too big.

I think the shoe must 1) Fit snuggly, but comfortably and 2) Be styled correctly.

What do you all think? Am I being too critical? Should I embrace the Valentino Rockstud?

“Shoesday” Edition: Wear Shoes and Eat Cake Too!

IMG_2345This entire cake is edible, but because of the creativity and artistry, who would WANT to eat it???!!!

I found this photo about a year ago (again on Pinterest) and excuse me for saying that I instantly wanted to have a party so as to have an excuse to get this cake made!

Shoelovers, what do you think? Would you want to eat this cake?

PS- If you know anyone that makes cakes like this, send them my way!!
