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 ;-)

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.
