Ooh la la! These Louboutins are fabulous and my new lust object. They're amazing and beautiful and the metal encrusted bow and shiny silver leather makes me swoon. They provoke an immediate response, and my response is WANT. They're £630 and hopelessly out of my budget. Booooo....

Now these are obviously 'inspired' by the lovely, and majorly more expensive Louboutin leopard print boots, as shown here:
I actually really really like them though. They're different enough to be interesting in their own right, and look great. Am I crazy though? What do you think - yay or nay?

These 'Labella' sandals are rather nice aren't they? A little bit tough, a little bit girly, 100% fabulous. They're very classic in design, with an elegant heel, with the embellishment adding a little pizazz to what would be a pretty ordinary shoe. I think they're great, but at £95, I need to save my pennies a bit first. Maybe it's something that Santa can bring me?
I've been an awfully good girl this year after all...

I'm all about black and white shoes at the moment it seems, and these Marni two tone platforms are no exception. White shoes are just making so much sense to me this winter. Now I love Marni, a lot of people find their shoes ugly, but I find beauty in the clumpiness and drama in the square toes. I think these are fabulous really. I love the architectural quality to these, and the black edges make these look beautifully geometric and tres modern. The contrasting platform is the icing on the cake. They're just begging to be worn with colourful tights to highlight the geometric design, and if they weren't £450, that is exactly how I would wear them.

Are you swooning, because I certainly am! I love the thick black geometric pattern, and I've never seen a pair of bottle green shoes look so sexy.
The heel is sculptural and incredible and the square/angular-ness is inspired. They come in at a hefty £1119, which is probably down to the python. I don't even care, all I know is that I want them and I can never have them.

Wow. When I think of white satin peep toes with black rhinestones, the image I get my my head is of some revolting tacky monstrosity, and not these simply beautiful pumps from Alexander McQueen. They're gorgeous, and just what I've been craving. Sometimes you need to see something beautiful to make you feel better about everything. I love the tiny rhinestones, and for them to be black rather than silver is an interesting and welcome change. I also really like the cut out at the back, yet again adding a little quirk to what could have been a fairly conventional shoe.
The back view is rather lovely too, with the studs continuing down the heel with the circular detail on the back. Obviously they're expensive, at a whopping £935, but sometimes it's just nice to indulge in a bit of shoe porn!
