Seeing that I shop online just as often as most people check Facebook, I’ve developed a good amount of shoe crushes and I think I’m in love. My shoe crushes are as numerous as they are expensive. Though I didn’t plan it that way, three of them are Charlotte Olympia. They say all love is unrequited and when it comes to me and heels, that this so true. Being clumsy and flat-footed, I’m drawn to heels like a moth to a flame.
Introducing my latest shoe crushes:
1. Charlotte Olympia Priscilla Striped Suede Island Platform Pumps: All these amazing colors make this shoe surprisingly versatile. No one will miss your shoes in these fun and flirty pumps.
2. Charlotte Olympia Dolly Signature Court Island Blush Platform: These chic neutrals have a sexy twist with the gold platform. Whenever I’m in the market for more comfortable heels, I usually look for platform or wedges.
3. Charlotte Olympia Moon Pump: I love the uniqueness and personality of these shoes. They’re fabulous pumps and a great conversation piece all in one.
4. Ellie Iridescence: These are the only affordable killer heels that I’m currently crushing on. The peacock plume and bow with the right accessories would be the perfect addition to the classic little black dress.
I can’t talk about show crushes without Aruna Seth. It’s a lifetime goal of mine to attend a dinner party or evening event in an Alice Temperley gown and Aruna Seth pumps with her signature butterfly. A little bird also known as Twitter told me that Aruna Seth is offering free shipping to the USA for the entire month of October which is yet another reason to love fall and shoes!
I’ve always wanted to go to England. I’ve been hoping Christian Grey would take me to his home in London in his private jet. Sadly, he is a fictional character existing only in the rather interesting mind of West Londoner Twi-Mom, E.L. James. But, an American girl can dream and of course tune into Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee on June 5, 2012.
After coming across these fabulous Swarovski crystal covered Aruna Seth platform pumps on Betty Confidential, I became utterly obsessed. This UK shoe designer is said to be a favorite of Pippa Middleton and Princess Beatrice. As homage to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, she has made 0nly 10 pairs of these limited edition shoe enthusiast collectables. They are currently on display at Harrod’s in London. Each has a grand total of 3,000 Swarovski crystals. It takes two weeks for one person to attach the patriotic crystals to the shoes by hand. I must say I’m smitten.
