Late Christmas Wish: Sergio Rossi Sandals

If I had one more wish for Christmas, I’d wish for this absolutely stunning pair of Sergio Rossi Sandals. I love everything about them, from the crystal-encrusted spiral heel to the ribbon-like cut-out on the front. Unfortunately, even on sale they still cost 1166 USD.  If you still have a free wish, you can make it come true at Luisaviaroma.

On Sale: Lanvin Pumps

The chunky heel and profiled sole make these beautiful Lanvin Pumps suitable for winter as well as summer. I personally prefer the dark brown shade and think a lighter coloured heel would have looked better on the cream coloured version. If you like them, both versions are on Sale for 599USD (previously 1000USD) at Barneys New York now. Click here for the dark brown version, and here for the cream coloured one.

Shoes like these make me look forward to summer, even though it’s still far away! With the wider front strap, they look quite comfortable, too. They are also available in black at the Buffalo online shop for 169 € (approx. 230USD).

These beautiful pumps by Odette e Odile are perfect for the party season, but surely would look great with a casual outfit as well. The Cameo/Ribbon is actually a shoe clip and can be attached at any place you like, and could be used to decorate other shoes as well. Also, you could also wear them without the clip for a more simple elegant look. Another nice touch is the coloured sole, which is turquoise for the beige coloured version and dark red for the black one. They are available for 24,150Yen (approx. 290 USD) at Magaseek.

Miu Miu Lookalike

Miu Miu ShoesVanity Beauty Shoes

If you’ve been lusting after these gorgeous Miu Miu pumps (top picture, available at Net-a-porter) and found the price of 595$ just a little bit too high, these two-tone pumps by Vanity Beauty are a cheaper alternative. They  look very similar to the Miu Miu’s, featuring the same two-tone color and bows.  But while the Miu Miu’s have no stitching along the edge of the black part, the Vanity Beauty pumps do. Also, the heel of the Miu Miu shoes is a bit higher and the cream color patent of the Vanity Beauty version is a little bit darker. If you prefer a different color combination, the Vanity Beauty pumps are also available in a combination of burgundy and pink or of light and dark brown which both look equally beautiful. They are currently on sale at 4,956 Yen, which equals about 60$ (previously 6,195 Yen/74$) at the Marui Web shop.

Fur Boots: Inspired by Casadei

These beautiful Pool Side suedette boots embellished with rabbit fur  are a style similar to Casadei’s mink fur boots (pictured below). They are available at the 109 web shop for 16,800Yen (approx. 200 USD) and can be folded over at any length, making them very versatile pair of boots.  The boots from Casadei are available at Luisaviaroma for 2,500 USD.

These beautiful Peeptoe Wedges from Casadei (top picture) with the unique heel design have been available in several different colours, but I think this hot pink version is especially eye-catching. Unfortunately, beauty comes at a price here: they are available for 950$ at Endless. For those who can’t afford to spend such an amount on shoes, Diana offers a cheaper alternative (lower picture) which is available at the Diana web shop for ¥14,490 (approx. 173$) in three different colours: nude, black and multicolour. These heels will surely make a stunning addition for every shoe collection.
