LaPazions, when I was assigned this article I thought to myself the shoe gods must really love me!! I cannot begin to tell you how I was hoping to land this one so I could go to different stores and Designers to try shoes photograph them and just talk about my favorite pass-time SHOES!


I think women have had and obsession with shoes since early Egypt and it hasn’t stopped. Did you know that women’s shoes account for 60 percent of the $40 billion worth of shoes sold in the U.S. each year? Men’s and kid’s purchases aren’t even half of that-and most of the shoes women buy are totally impractical and uncomfortable (trust me I know first hand). Still we cannot live without our shoes and they look so good on our feet even if we can only keep them on for 2 hours.LOL!

This seasons shoes are just fabulous and bring in different fabrics, textures, textiles and colors and each pair is like telling its own story. First stop Vivienne Westwood, she’s offering the hot pop of color plus the fabulous fabric choices and the spool heal is comfortable and gives your foot a little more support. We loved the geo print fabric and brought great structure to this shoe:



Don’t say anything about the foot in this shoe because we cannot help how high the instep is on this model, aren’t they gorgeous? We love the hardware on the shoe the hot trend of buckles and the ankle strap add just the right sex appeal. Another hot trend for this season is the pointed toe, which is beautiful it elongates the foot and gives that little toe cleavage, I love the colors for this spring\summer and still staying with the textures:

We love the tips on the points and the different details that have been added. The colors and fabric choices are bold and the wet patented leather, plus all shoes now are taking a pointer (pun intended) from Alexander McQueen with the metal works and spikes that adds such and edge to any shoe. The next trend this season is taken right out of ancient Roman and it happens to be the Gladiator styled sandal. We saw this look a lot on the runways this season and I have to tell you; this look can be a little challenging to pull off. Ladies please make sure you do your homework prior to just running out and purchasing any of these trends and make sure that they complement your particular foot and leg:

I love the zebra, teal toe, orange snake and the pink straps with the buckles pure genius!! Then how he’s designed the wedge it’s not so boring and the small details are what make this shoe standout. My love affair with this particular Designer just keeps on getting better every season, everyday that he is creating shoes that look fabulous on a woman’s foot!

These are just a few of the shoe trends for S/S-13- We also have a few fabulous looks from Guiseppe, that are giving us the stunning white collection with the metal detailing and the strappy sexy stiletto, which is ultra chic and such a timeless piece to add to any ones collection:

Just for our ladies that cannot or will not wear a high heel don’t worry the shoe goddesses have heard your pleas and they have something just as cute for you to rock as well. From hot colors to metal works to just kicky little shoes to flit around in you’ll look just as Fabulous as our high heel girls:
