Shoe Challenge No.23

Jelly Beans Peeptoe Pumps
Shoes: Jelly Beans (with shoe clips by Le Talon)
Worn with: Dress by Laurèl, bag by Armani, cardigan by Mon Cashmere.

Today I was mostly just at home doing Uni stuff and just went to Munich in the afternoon to meet my mom after work for some window shopping…I shouldn’t go window shopping, it’s too tempting in summer! We saw so many gorgeous shoes and other things it was difficult to resist. I especially loved the shoes at D&G, they had the most beautiful floral wedges. Oh well, one can dream!

Since I already “saved” the shoes I usually wear with this dress I decided on saving these peeptoe pumps by the Japanese brand Jelly Beans. I bought them many years ago and they’re my go-to black shoes for summer, comfortable and can be combined with nearly everything. Actually these used to have their own bow clip when I bought them, but unfortunately I managed to lose one clip the first time I wore them out clubbing. So, I eventually bought these clip on bows by Le Talon as replacement. Since these aren’t anything unusual, and already show some wear, here’s just one close-up – I included our super-kitsch Easter decoration lamb:

If you’re interested in shoes by Jelly Beans, you can take a look at their online shop. They have rather simple and inexpensive styles, but the one pair I own seems to be good quality, as it’s still fine after about five years 🙂

Hot shoes from Brazil

Today I “discovered” a new shoe brand, which I just have to share with you. While I was browsing shoe sites during my lunch break today, I saw these super stunning pair by the Brazilian brand Dilly – a great discovery! I need to start saving up now 🙂

Aren’t these amazing?! I’m totally in love with the heels…and the little ribbon on the back…and the shape…If you find them equally stunning, you can get a pair for 229€ (click here for the red version, here for the black version and here for the lemon version).

Of course, after seeing these beauties, I wanted to see the rest of Dilly’s collection and headed over to their homepage, but unfortunately it’s under construction right now. Nevertheless, you can take a look at their previous collections on the old homepage in the meantime.

Shoe Challenge No.21

Today it was sunny but still really cold, so outfit-wise I wasn’t in the mood for dressing up, but I still decided to save another pair of good-weather shoes! I met friends for coffee and we watched the movie Limitless, which was interesting.

Esperanza WedgesShoes: Esperanza
Worn with: Cardigan by Chille AnaP, top by H&M, jeans by Seven, bag by Armani.

Today’s shoes are by the Japanese brand Esperanza (as so many of my favourite pairs!), and they were love at first sight for me! I love everything about them: the crazy heel-shape, the big houndstooth print and the detachable bow. Nevertheless, when I first saw them I wasn’t feeling like spending money and stupidly decided to wait…..of course once I decided to buy them they were already sold out in the shop and I had to search a lot to find another pair! Luckily I found my “happy end” when I discovered a pair in Ikebukuro’s Esperanza shop 🙂

Esperanza Wedges

The only bad thing about them is that the uppers are made of fabric (there’s nothing worse than white fabric on a shoe!!), so I always have to listen closely to the weather report before wearing them …well, at least they’re comfortable!

Last but not least, another rollcake, which I made a few days ago. This time I thought up my own decorating pattern:

Zara Ribbon BootieShoes: Zara

Worn with: Dress by H&M, long cardigan by Repeat, bag by Samantha Thavasa.

Another pair of shoes from Zara. I loved these booties from the day I saw them in the store, but they were too expensive in my opinion. So, when I found them on sale for a fraction of the original price in my size, of course I couldn’t resist! They are quite high, but fairly comfortable thanks to the hidden platform. In grey, they’re less boring than black but still can be combined with a lot of other colours. My favourite part is the big ribbon on the side:

Sweet Spring Pumps by Dea Dia

These colourful pumps are from the spring collection of the Japanese brand Dea Dia. Apart from the colours pictured above, they are also available in black and white. I instantly noticed them in the shop, and the colours actually look much prettier than in the pictures. The low heel should make them comfortable to walk in, too. Click here to buy a pair for 7,245¥ (approx. 65 €).

Sparkly Peeptoes by Friis Company

These beautiful peeptoes would add some sparkle to any outfit! I can imagine them equally well with jeans or a dress. Personally, I love the combination of the sparkly upper and the big velvet bow. And the best: They’re just 69, 95 €. Click here to buy a pair.

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.
