I am always perusing the fashion magazines, blogs, and other media and every once and a while I come across something that makes my heart skip a beat. Insert….Burak Uyan, shoe designer extraordinaire. Uyan is a German-born designer that has had stints at Givenchy and Giambattista Valli before concentrating on his own fabulous collections. His shoes are divinely architectural and feminine and they ooze sexiness. I imagine I would feel like a lioness on the prowl for my next victim in these shoes. Since these are a little outside of my shoe budget, I have yet to try them on, but I do like the hidden platform design in most of these shoes which adds some extra comfort. Below are a few of my faves I found on Polyvore.com. Eat your heart out
Save up your chips because these beauties don’t come cheap but are well worth it.
I purchased these high heel loafers by C.Label years ago at a cute little boutique in Baltimore (I can’t remember the name). I was drawn to the odd teal-greyish color and of course, the platform sole. The great thing about a loafer pump is that the heel is usually pretty sturdy. It’s also a classic look so, it will remain in style for years to come. You can view some more loafer pumps on my previous post on loafers.
My new shoe heart throb……British fashion shoe designer Tabitha Simmons! Not only is she a fab designer, but is also an editor for Vogue and styles runway shows for Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, and Alexander McQueen. Talk about a multitasker! I really admire her ability to show her creativity and not be too whimsical. Her shoes are eye-catching but not so out there you can’t wear them as an everyday shoe. Here are a few I’m lusting over…..
These shoes have G.N.O. written all over them…
This color is just sick!
I always love a funky wedge.
Playful but I would still totally wear these to the office.
Bam! This is a bootie.

I can’t get enough of these printed pumps.
If her collection is a little too pricey, you’re in luck. She has a more affordable line for J. Crew.

Zara is hands down one of my favorite places to shop! This past December I was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and typically when I shop internationally, I try to avoid going to stores we have in the states. Well, I had to make an exception for Zara. It was summer time there so I was able to shop the spring/summer collection. My girlfriend and I spent over two hours in the store and I ended up getting these shoes (along with several other items) I’m reviewing today. I love that from the front, the shoes appear so innocent with its baby pink color, and then in the back….BAM! Bad ass studs! They have more of a kitty heel and a nice wide forefoot so these babies were made for walking!
