Head Over Heels
Liz Lisa Shoes

These pink shoes from Liz Lisa are so cute! Mary jane with chunky platform heels, ankle-strap wedges with pretty bows, heart-shaped cutouts and embroidery — I adore them all! But I don’t have the wardrobe to match the pretty, frilly pinkness of it all.

But this one! Surely I can make room for this? Camel suede booties with grosgrain ribbon laces (also in brown and pink).

valentino spring 2013 shoes high heels transparent straps studs

These shoes and accessories from Valentino Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection made me switch from my bulky, masculine riding boot hunting mode to lover of the feminine lightness of all things transparent and sparkly — strappy high heels with studs, peep-toe slingback heels and wedges. Perfect footwear to showcase fun, neon colors on your toes and would look equally good with bright red nails or a subdued French manicure.

Ooh, and this totally see-through boxy clutch (so impractical but still love it) and bangles!

Also from the same runway show, a couple of creamy pastel accessories. This pretty clutch + bangle combo in a pale jadite green looks good enough to eat. Yum!

Knee-High Riding Boots

knee high riding boots winter

Knee-high riding boots are my current obsession now. I have two plain ones in black and tan, both worn to death. They are my three-season boots — with shorts and dresses with knee-high stockings in the spring or fall and with thicker socks + jeans or high denier tights or leggings for cooler winter climates.

I have been looking for something with a little bit more flair (read: fancier buckles). Leather riding boots from Amazon Boot Shop, top from left to right: Enzo Angiolini Visco women’s leather riding boot (in Cognac), Vince Camuto Flavian leather boot (in Dark Wood/Black with gold hardware) and ECCO Hobart buckle boot (in black, also in Mink or Cognac).
