Burak Uyan: Designer Shoes to Covet

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 ;-)

Shoe Review: C. Label Loafer Pumps

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.

What I’m Digging: Tabitha Simmons

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…

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.

Shoe Review: Zara Studded Pink Pumps

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!
