Shoes to Covet: Bionda Castana

I was thumbing through a gossip magazine (yes…I admit it) a few weeks ago and spotted these gorgeous shoes on Rashida Jones.  I scoured the web trying to find out who the designer was and discovered the beautiful world of Bionda Castana.  The brains behind these stunning shoes are two British designers, Jennifer Portman and Natalia Barbieri.  The designers utilize inspiration from their Italian heritage to create impeccably handcrafted shoes with luxurious silks, lace, velvet, and leather.  The British label gained it’s notoriety by many celebs, including Keira Knightley, wearing them on the red carpet.  Now for a small fortune you can adorn these shoe to your next holiday soiree :-)

I love this soft grey suede accented with gold studs to give it a little more edge.

This pointed-toe pump with the fan details and rich lace has such a regal feel to it.  Fit for a queen.

It will be a while before any of these shoes make it into my wardrobe, but until then….a girl can dream!

Thanks for reading!
