Ladies and gentlemen, Happy Friyay! I made a video of my luxury shoes haul last week on my YouTube channel and I wanted to share it here.
The right shoes can transform a look from dull to fabulous. Even if you only have a pair blue jeans and a white T-shirt, great heels can turn it into street style. In this luxury shoe haul video, I’m wearing an all black ensemble to let the shoes do the talking while I talk all about them. Here are six luxury shoe styles I’m currently obsessed with and why I believe they’re worth the splurge.
Tamara Mellon Stellar – shop here
These Tamara Mellon heels have a crushed velvet texture that I absolutely love. They feature a stunning crystal studded heel with ankle strap. These heels have a cushioned sole which makes them very comfortable and suitable for everyday wear.
Tamara met me at an event. I asked Tamara about her inspiration. It turned out that she was inspired from the cushion on a stool she was sitting upon. With a vision of making shoes that are ultra comfortable and cushioned, she dismantled the stool and then returned to her manufacturer. Without sacrificing a single ounce of style, she did an amazing job. These are perfect for a date night!
Manolo Blahnik Gold Pumps – shop similar here and here
These shoes are a miracle worker. They can transform a basic outfit into something extraordinary or add the finishing touch to an elegant ensemble. These pumps will last a lifetime, no matter how you style them.
Tamara Mellon Eclipse 100 Velvet – shop here
There’s something so powerful about a pair of over-the-knee boots. They are both confident and classic, making them a bold statement. The unique color of these crushed velvet boots, by Tamara Mellon, is my favorite. They have beautiful crystal detailing on the sole and vintage-inspired stitching. These shoes are very comfortable and can be worn with jeans or leggings, or paired with a skirt or dress.
Francesco Russo Caged Pumps – shop similar here, here and here
Next, a pair of beautiful black caged pumps by Francesco Russo. I bought a pair of classic black pumps from them and have been wearing them on repeat so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a second pair. The caged look is both eye-catching, and timeless. The two-tone color is my favorite. I also love how they add some flair to any look by adding a strappy silhouette.
Saint Laurent Black Heels – shop here
I’m pretty enamored with this stunning pair of heels by Saint Laurent. They have an asymmetrical flower detail on just one of the sandals that really give them a pop of intrigue although I did have someone comment that it looks like I’m wearing a house arrest anklet. In spite of the fact that I can no longer unsee that, I’m a big fan of the sculptural form and patent leather of this pump. I’ve worn them over socks during the cold season and can’t wait to bring them on vacation with me once I’m off house arrest (juuust kidding).
Tamara Mellon Comet – shop here
I already told you that this pillow top sole and luxurious heel combination was too good to pass up. The Tamara Mellon third pair of heels, which is 50% Tamara’s haul, is a closed toe design with a laced detail at the foot. I love how you can customize the lace up closure to give your look an amazing feel. The heel has more of those magical crystals for fashion purposes and this dark purple color gives the shoe a regal air that I can’t get enough of.
