Worth Splurging Carl Scarpa Ogetti Cairistine sandals

This weeks splurge comes from Arnotts for €110. This mule sandal has a very unusual design, most of the shoe is open but it comes together at the vamp with rolled detailing and opens out again to a peep toe. They are constructed from suede and are trimmed in patent leather piping. I’m not sure how easy they would be to walk in but they certainly made me sit up straight and take a closer look.

They are constructed from dyed patent leather with a...

Top Tip: Remove scuffs from patent shoes

It’s happened to us all; you buy a new pair of shiny patent shoes and after the first time you wear them you notice scuff marks and are absolutely disgusted that your fabulous new shoes are ruined. Well through sheer desperation many years ago I came up with a solution by “googling” it (I love googling stuff). I had scuffed a pair of shoes to within an inch of their life and I really didn’t want to give up on them. I came across an article (can’t remember the...

Bargain of the Week Korkys Unis Black Sandal

This weeks bargain comes from Korky’s. I’ve had my eye on these sandals for a while and really wanted to feature them but at €49.99 they didn’t really fit in the bargain category but when I checked them out again this week I saw the price had dropped to a bargain friendly price of €20 whoop whoop. A great Summer sandal that will match any outfit, you could just as easily wear them with jeans as with a dress. The stiletto heel height is 4½” (11cm). They are also...

Shoe Showcase Black patent peep toe

I picked these heels up a few months ago from a local boutique That’s Perfect, they were on sale and I picked them up for only €10. They are totally me…..patent, peep toe, skyscrapers. The heel height is 5″ (12.7cm) and they also feature a ¾” (2cm) concealed platform. They are constructed from a faux patent leather and also have a muted red sole which I adore. The insole is a lovely shiny metallic silver. I last wore these for my Shoemammy’s birthday on Friday, I took her to...

Bargain Of The Week Albany Patent Platform Bow

It’s bargain time, this weeks find comes from a little online store I came across while browsing other shoe sites. I think these are super cute, I love the blush colour and the little bow on the vamp. I don’t normally go for chunky heels but I think it goes well with these due to the muted colours. The wedge and heel have a beige suede look and the upper is a faux patent leather. The insole is a metallic silver…I love it.   The heel height is 5.5″...

Shoe Showcase Moda in Pelle “Columba” Stiletto

Yeay it’s Friday…almost the weekend and a Bank Holiday weekend to make it even better. I am one of the lucky ones who will be working all weekend, including Monday, so I did my partying last weekend. Last Saturday I gently took these beautiful heels out of the safety of their box and proceeded to party the night away in them. I picked these stunning animal print heels up in Minx Wild Pair which is one of my favourite local fashion & footwear boutiques. These are officially the most...

Celebrity Shoes Fergie in Christian Louboutin Yellow “Pigalle” Pumps

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie was recently spotted in these beautiful Christian Louboutin pumps on a trip to New York city. She teamed the sexy heels with a vibrant colourful dress and she looks stunning. These heels show off the Christian Louboutin red sole and the yellow patent leather really pops. The stiletto heel measures 5″ (12cm).   I love the classic shape of this shoe, it really elongates her legs. The Pigalle heels are available in black from Net-A-Porter for €390. I wasn’t able to find the yellow...

Celebrity Shoes Cheryl Cole in Marc Jacobs Polka Dot Wedges

Cheryl Cole wore these Marc Jacob polka dot t-bar wedges at the X-Factor auditions in California in Chicago on 19th May 2011. Although I do love Cheryl (I have a bit of a girl crush on her), I think she went a little polka dot crazy by teaming them with a cream and black polka dot dress. I do love both the wedges and the dress but combining the two is a bit much for me. If she swapped the dress for a plain style it would have been...
