For the Love of Shoes: White Platform Sandals

It’s the funky nature of the white platform that I love. It stands out, especially if the rest of the shoe is a bright color. I’m obsessed with this trend this year. Seattle has been unusually hot this year and my ankle boots are sometimes way too much (it’s that warm).

The brand I’ve been loving has been Bucco, which is over on Hautelook quite a bit, but since it’s a flash sale site, I usually miss my size. I just discovered these over on Zooshop, which I literally discovered tonight, and again, these just fuel my love for these sky high platforms even more. They’re a statement piece and can really make a jean & t-shirt combo instantly fab.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Looking forward to floating at the lake tomorrow in this heat.

For the Love of Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Spring is finally here. Almost. I mean it is, but if I’m not able to wear sandals in the morning without my toes falling off from the cold then we’re not quite there yet. But next week will be in the mid seventies which means I get break out my favorite Matiko platform sandals.


Damn right that calls for a dancing Dumbledore gif.

But oh hey, speaking of platform sandals. Jeffrey Campbell. Always brilliantly out there with wild styles and sky high platforms & the latest shoes available at Solestruck are no less bold and wonderful.

These platforms look wonderfully retro & I want to buy them all, put on a pair of dark skinny jeans and role the cuffs up. I love them.


I’m so ready for spring, scratch that, I’m ready for SUMMER, and sandals. And I want some Jeffrey Campbell platforms to add to my closet.

For the Love of Shoes: Vivian Ying

If you follow my blog, you know I love interesting shoes. I’m captivated by UK Based shoe designer Vivian Ying. She is relatively new to the fashion scene with only 2 collections, one of which is Vivian Ying for Zandra Rhodes.

The shoes have a fun and unique shape, but are so wearable. They make me want to be somewhere tropical.

I’m hoping to see more of this designer in the future. Love love love her style!

For the Love of Shoes: United Nude

I’ve been sitting on this brand a while & am finally posting! What a beautiful collection I have stumbled upon.

I love the clean and modern design of this brand, United Nude. Even the most intricate, detailed piece is sharp. Structurally the shoes are a work of art and are beautiful to look at, and as they should be. They are the product of collaboration between an architect and shoemaker–such clean, innovative design should be expected from such a pair, and they deliver it well.

Check out the United Nude spring/summer collection.
I think I’ll be snatching up a pair or few before summer officially hits.
