I've been so busy with work and drivers ed that I haven't been commenting and posting as much. I'm done drivers ed now. I decided that a few Saturdays when I post it will be about shoes. I'm calling it "Shoe Saturday" because alliteration is fun. This week's Shoe Saturday is focusing on studs. Studs add some badassery to otherwise plain shoes or plain outfits. The Sam Edelman Lorissa,my favorite shoe on this list, looks classy from the front but fun from the back. The mullet of shoes. Imagine pairing it with fifties style dresses or wide legged pants for a more casual look. The rhinestones add some sweetness. I saw these shoes at Nordstrom a while ago and showed them to the family and they asked if I was getting into S&M. So they may not be the best shoes if you hang with a conservative crowd.
They look like simple pumps with a bow on them at first glance but, when you move in closer you realize the bow has some studs on it.The Bruno Magli heelsare a great mix between sweet and sassy. With a bow for your girly side and studs for your wild side, this shoe becomes a basic shoe with a twist.
The skull is the center piece of this Alexander McQueen shoe. The studs frame it so nicely. The skull reminds me of mermaids at the bow of a ship.Suede is the perfect fabric for this shoe. Even with a giant rhinestone skull at it's center, this shoe manages to be subtle.
