Chanel, as seen on every other shoe blog

I really debated with myself on whether to post this picture or not as it is currently on every single fashion blog google can find and every single one says the same thing; that they are from Chanel Cruise 2008/2009 (duh), that they are Art Deco inspired (double duh), that they were inspired by a picture of a gun (don’t even have to put a duh there) and they were designed by Chanel’s resident shoemaker Laurence Decade and all other information regurgitated from the Fashion Week Daily article.

However the thing that really confuses me with the shoe is the name, the “Miami Vice”? Just because Miami is where they held the fashion show it does not mean you have to name the shows signature piece after a bad 1970’s television show when you could have given it a sleek name taken from a film noir. It just screams the “Maltese Falcon” or “Vertigo”. You can just imagine them walking into the detectives office on the legs of a platinum blonde. But that’s just me, and to be honest, with all my questions on balance due to the heels placement and the chances of the heel snapping, I still want to buy the damn things.

For Winter or Summer

Also at eluxury I found these interesting sandal/thigh high boots by Maison Martin Margiela. If you haven’t heard of them before then you are missing out on something.

Gaultier

I remember when I was younger staying up late whenever the Movie “The Fifth Element” was on, not for the story or the characters but for Jean-Paul Gaultier’s costuming. I love his use of proportion in these particular shoes with the hidden one inch platform. For Gaultier these shoes are a little subdued but I still love them. They are available at eluxury.

Dior on Ebay

I keep on seeing last year’s Dior pumps I love so much on ebay. The only problem is I can not decide on which colour.

Mui Mui on ebay

Found these tea cup Mui Mui’s on ebay for $875 US there a size 41 so a little in the big size. They are gorgeous.

New at Net-a-Porter

Finally after a flow of non lust worthy shoes on Net-a-Porter these new Celine’s at the price of £421 ($858.75 AUD) have popped up. I love the way that the soles wrap around the sidezs of the foot and the way the straps continue underneath. The detailing on the shoe is gorgeous so I’ve put in two views of it.
