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!

“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: The Closet

I’ve mentioned it before on this blog that someday I WILL have a shoe closet.

My friend Dejah (who is a shoe lover and avid reader of this blog) and I started a “shoe closet” board on Pinterest.

I recently found the image below (I can’t remember if I added it to our Pinterest board or not) and I’m contemplating having a shoe closet similar to this, especially because it’s purple!

closetThe feeling I get from knowing that my shoes are on display is difficult to describe! I just LOVE knowing that I will be able to shop my own closet!

Shoelovers, am I crazy? Let me know!

Happy Shoesday! 🙂
