Modern Glamazon

Metal cuffs clasped the ankle of high sandals with cut-out wedges; flat sandals with metal stud trim; high snakeskin sandals. I want Lanvin, not diamonds as Bryant Boy said!

John Galliano - Paris Spring 2011

Vampy high T-bar sandals with contrast platforms for Galliano's Spring 2011. John Galliano, fashion designer for his eponymous label and for Christian Dior, paves the way for next spring with hot heels. The John Galliano Spring 2011 shoe collection includes hot styles like a pair of gorgeous crystal-encrusted stilettos—what more could an aspiring diva need for springtime?

Jean Paul Gautier Extravaganza

Follow-me showgirl ankle-strap high-heels. Thick-strapped pump in various colors – worn without the flower accessory; I particularly liked how one pair was styled over skinny jeans. I’m also getting a happy feelings from the simple, color-blocked pumps. They are not necessarily breaking new ground with the left-right color scheme, but the patent is rich and the vibrant contrast is appealing.

Hermès Spring 2011

I have a new goal in life: I want to own a pair of Hermes riding boots before I die. Preferably the cream leather boots featured at the Hermes Spring 2011 runway show – how utterly divine are they? I don’t even want to think about what a nightmare they would be to keep clean, or how heartbroken I would be when they inevitably became smudged. How about if I just wear them inside my house?
Other than those boots, I also fell in love with bright orange criss-cross and woven leather sandals. Yes, i love color, orange.

Dries Van Noten

Signature masculine/feminine interplay look. Signature shoe shape with wide heel and thin platform - two-strap mules, Mary Janes, closed-toe sling-backs or multi-strap sandals in dusted suedes, printed silk or iridescent metallics. The collection streamlines the retro feel of near-wedge slingbacks, pumps and sandals and adds a futuristic touch here and there with occasional metallic heels, which are just enough to remind us that these shoes didn’t come straight out of the best vintage shop in the entire world. 

Wooden Wedge Sandal

I love shoes. I want to buy every single fabulous pair of shoes!!! And it say in BCBG site "If shoe fits, buy every color!" I said that's right!!!

Charles David – Nero Platform Sandal

Let everyone else wear zeros while your strut your fierce stuff in the Charles Davis Neros. A hint of ancient Rome inspired Charles Davids aptly named Nero. Fierce, edgy, and nothing short of femme fatale, the towering sandal tangles your shapely foot in crisscrossing leather straps for an utterly sensuous ride. Practical highlights include a rear zipper and stabilizing platform sole, while its spike heel and seductive coverage add up to one dazzling night on the town.

Barely There

Minimal dance is the look of Chloé, Paris Spring/Summer 2011. Flat sandals with cross-over straps and Sam Browne stud fastening, soft-structure ballet pumps in collection colors, and most interesting look is flat sandals with toe loop and wide ankle cuff in leather or clear plastic. It's barely there...

Now, what is this got to do with Oyakodon? Because this is one of my favorite food ever!!! Oyako literally "parent-and-child donburi". This is totally that I can' give up.
Well... I will stick with Oyakodo.

Chanel – Tweed Ankle Boots

This shoe collection is (to me) “very Lagerfeld”, probably due to the leather and tweed motorcycle boots. This spring shoe collection featured thick wooden block heels and embellished peep toe booties. Both powerhouses – Dior and Chanel, featured wrap-up sandals this season. I’ve been reading reviews and this shoe collection is a hit or miss for many people. I’m curious to know your thoughts on this collection, please leave a comment!


Love Cacharel's Spring colors Peachy blushes and pinky nudes. Block-heeled T-bar sandals, peep-toe ankle boots with cutaway sides.

Barbara Bui _ Spring, Summer 2011

You can go adult avant-garde by selecting a cone-shaped heel or go for a added best belvedere shoe which appearance a beefy heel, either way all the designs attending amazing.


Hwe Dup Bap – Kaya

Hwe dup bap is one of my favorite Korean dishes ever. It’s basically a raw fish rice bowl with fresh vegetables and a gochujang-based sauce called chojang. The basic ingredients of chojang are gochujang and rice vinegar. I added minced garlic and sesame oil to mine and a touch of water to thin it out. This spicy tangy sauce is a traditional accompaniment to raw fish in Korean cuisine. Got pretty good one at Kaya Korean Sushi restaurant.

No. 1 is No. 1

I had a wonderful experience at Al Noor. I ordered the No. 1 which include all types of meat, and it was amazing. Try No. 1, you won't be disappointed!
I was impressed with the flavor of both dishes and I especially liked that the dishes were the perfect amount of spicy. We asked for spicy and we got awesome!
I like the comfortable family feel of this place and the service was wonderful.


I've never heard of her singing. I've never watched her acting. She is in may trashy mags. Jessica Simpson. Whatever... All I know is that her shoes are high and comfortable! This new pair is not exception. Must check it!

Loomed Leather Boots

Not your typical boot, Loomed leather boots boast a generous stretch of intriguing huarache-woven detail on the shaft, crafted from tremendous handworked leather. Subtle studding and top-notch craftsmanship.

Poetically Feminine

High strappy sandals with deep wooden platforms & crochet detail.

Medley of Exquisite Works of McQueen

This seasn the public had the chance to enjoy the pleasure of being in a magical world that is so characteristic of the realm Alexander McQueen envisioned. Studded sandal boots with ski-hook style lacings, square toe-capped buckled ankle boots, peep-toe T-bar sandals. Yummmmmm....

Interesting Hybrid

One of the great novelties of the season as well as one of the main points of attraction throughout the collection are the interesting rubber soled wedges that seem to merge almost naturally with the unusual patterns to create an interesting hybrid. The result on the unusual combination seems to an extremely modern shoe style that has a strong casual vibe. Even though this idea might or might not catch on, this idea is surely challenging us to expand our vision and think of new ways of embracing both comfort and style at the same time.

Wearable Medium Heels

Aside from the rather obvious Mary Jane inspiration we can also notice a preferences for thicker, chunkier heels rather than thin, stiletto type heels. In addition, the collection seems to show a strong preference for wearable medium heels instead of killer high heels. This tendency tends to be a plus of the collection as it will surely be appreciated by women with a more practical sense.

Prada does it again

Nope, you aren’t watching a Tim Burton movie in technicolor or reading a Dr. Seuss book. Miuccia Prada opted for bold, vibrant colors for Prada's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I love this 20s-style T-bars and Mary Janes came in striped basketweaves with round buckle.

N° 21

Yes, I've seen many gold, flats, ankle-length, sequins & glitter, jeweled sandals.But why is this one especially fabulous for this season? Because, N° 21's S/S 2011 jeweled sandlas are not too gold, not too, flat, not too glittered. It is just right amount of all of those.

Top each with freshly ground black pepper and 1/4 of parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
