Inspiration Monday / Shoe Challenge No.47

Diane Kruger
Finally, I managed to take part in Inspiration Monday again! This week’s picture was too cute to pass, so I took a break from reading books for uni and put together the following outfit:

とうとうまたInspiration Mondayに参加しました!今週の写真が可愛くて、絶対参加したかったです。卒業論文の本をよむことを休んで、こちらのコーデーを考えだしました:

Duras Peeptoe PumpsShoes: Duras Ambient / シューズ: Duras Ambient
Worn with: Top and skirt by H&M, belt by Laurèl, DIY flower hairclip.
H&Mのキャミソールとスカート、Laurèlのベルト、DIYの花クリップ。

This time, I didn’t take it as literally as the last times, and took mainly the colours as inspiration. I quite like the outcome, and it’s definitely something I wouldn’t have put together without the challenge! Both the top and skirt are quite old, and I haven’t worn them in a long time, but seeing them now I’m sure they’ll see more use again in the future 🙂 The shoes I bought in Japan, also quite a long time ago – even though they don’t look like it, they are probably the most uncomfortable shoes I own. Somehow they fit perfectly when I tried them on in the shop, but now they are too tight. It seems like they magically shrunk! Has that ever happened to you? ….I’ll try having them stretched, but if that doesn’t succeed I guess I’ll have to sell them, even though I really really like the style. Here they are close up:

前回はできるだけ元に近いコーデーにしましたが、今回はただ色をインスピレーションにしたコーデーにしました。チャレンジがなければこのようなあわせにしなかったのですが、結果はかなりすきです。キャミソールもスカートも結構古いもので、長い間着ていなかったのですが、これからはまたよくつかうようになりそうです :) 靴も結構まえに日本で買いました。そういうふうに見えないと思いますが、実は私のもってる靴のなかで一番はきにくい一足です。試着したときに、サイズがぴったりだったのに、今は小さいです。不思議に小さくなったきがします。このようなことは体験したことがありますか?。。。ストレッチしてもらうつもりですが、それでもダメだったら売らなければならないと思います。こちらはクローズ・アップです:

And, last up, a picture of my DIY flower hairclip – inspired by a pair of shoes from Pura Lopez I had originially planned on making shoe clips, but ended up making a hairclip instead:

最後に、自分で作った花のクリップの写真です。実はPura Lopezの靴をまねして、シューズ・クリップを作りたかったのですが、そのかわりに髪用のクリップを作りました:

Shoe Challenge No.38

purple peeptoe pumpsShoes: ? / シューズ:?
Worn with: Dress by Sita Murt, bag by Armani
Sita Murtのドレス、Armaniのバッグ

I managed to save another pair today. These are a pair of Louboutin lookalikes from Ebay. I got these a long time ago and probably wouldn’t buy them again now. They’re fine as far as comfort go, but I don’t find them that interesting. Still I don’t want to throw them away or sell them as they do come in handy sometimes. This is one of the dresses I bought at the Second Hand Shop yesterday. It’s by the Spanish brand Sita Murt – I hadn’t heard of it before since it’s nearly nowhere to be found in Germany. I love the sleeves on this dress! Just went grocery shopping this evening and had a nice icecream with my mom on the way back. When we came home it was getting dark already, so today’s photos are indoors again!

今日も一足「救出」しました。この靴はLouboutinに似てるいますが、そのブランドの物ではないです。実は何年前にEbayで買いました。今はもう買わないと思います。はきやすいですが、すこしつまらないスタイルだと思っています。それでもたまに役に立つので、捨てたくないし、売りたくないです。ドレスは昨日セカンド・ハンド・ショップで買った洋服の一つです。スペインのSita Murtと言うブランドのドレスです。ドイツではほとんど手に入らないブランドなので、いままではしりませんでした。このドレスのスリーブが大好きです!今日はただ母と食べ物を買いに行って、帰りにアイスを食べました。帰ってきた時にもう暗くなっていたので、写真はまた室内になってしまいました!

Shoe Challenge No.36

Flag-J SandalsShoes: Flag-J / シューズ:Flag-J
Worn with: Top by Hugo Boss, skirt by Jil Sander, belt by Laurèl, bag by Miu Miu.
Hugo BossのTシャツ、Jil Sanderのスカート、Laurèlのベルト、Miu Miuのバッグ。

Do you remember these shoes? I got a pair for myself, and they are still available here (though not in beige/large 😉 ) and today I wore them for the first time! These surely aren’t shoes for heel “beginners” as they are super high and take a while to get used to. The platform is a little round at the front so you need some balance. If you’re a heel veteran though, they shouldn’t be a problem! Anyway these are good for training leg muscles…this is how they look like on the foot:

この靴を覚えていますか?実は一足を買いました!まだそのスタイルはこちらで買えます (ただベージュのLサイズは売りきれています 😉 )。今日は初めてはきました!この靴はヒールが高くて、少しなれるまで時間がかかりますので初めてヒールをはく人にはおすすめできないんですがよくヒールをはく人なら問題がないと思います!足の筋肉をきたえるにもいいです…はいたときのみためです:

Patent Wedges – D&G and Flag-J

Finally these gorgeous wedges by D&G are available on their online shop! I’ve seen them in the shop recently and wanted to show them to you since then. To me, they’re a perfect summer shoe. They’re available in purple and green:

Sadly, at 445 € they’re quite expensive! If you want them anyway, click here.

If you’re looking for a similar shoe with a more budget-friendly price, these wedges by Flag-J are a perfect alternative. They also have patent uppers and a very similar woven heel to the D&G shoes, but the shape is different enough not to be called a copy. Apart from pink and green, they’re also available in red, beige and black. And for the price of 7,110 Yen (approx. 62€) they’re definitely budget friendly! Click here to buy a pair at Flag-J’s online store.

Eye-Candy: Donna Karan Sandal

Donna Karan Platform Sandal

Isn’t this sandal by Donna Karan just lovely? The weather here has been back to “winter mode” for the last few days, and looking at these makes me feel a bit more like springtime is here already! I especially like the mix of materials. Luckily, my bank account will be spared as I don’t have an unneeded $1,290 to splash out on shoes. If you want these tough, they are available at the Donna Karan webstore.

This beautiful style by Poetic Licence is called “Feel the Rhythm” and to me they do look like the perfect dancing shoes: Eye-catching, high but not uncomfortable (probably) because of the platform. I like the brown-cream coloured version best as these seem like they could be used as more than just party shoes. Apart from the colours shown above, this style is also available in orange-purple and pink-blue. All colours are available here for $134.
