Wishlist: 4 Shoes

Wishlist: 4 Shoes
Since shoes are just so incredible, exciting, amazing and fantastic I thought it would be appropriate to make them the subject of my next wishlist post. When it comes to shoes, selecting just four pairs is rather challenging. My love for shoes could go on forever. I guess that's why I have incorporated a 5th pair into this 4 shoes post. I haven't bought any new shoes in a very long time (I seem to always be buying clothes instead of shoes recently) so compiling this post has made it very tempting to acquire new shoes. It's just too bad that I am currently on a spending ban. 

Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats

I am so in love with these shoes right now. They are such a beautiful and unique variation of the traditional black ballet flat. These are my absolute dream shoes especially since I am the ultimate cat lover. I always wish there were more cat related clothes and shoes around. The gold detailing is fabulous and, even though you can't see from this picture, I adore the gold heel. These shoes are stunning. Since it is highly unlikely that I will ever acquire a pair of Charlotte Olympia shoes I would like to find a cheaper look alike pair. Does anyone know where I could find this? (I'd probably even break my shopping ban just for these shoes). 

I was extremely impressed to see the bridal version of the Charlotte Olympia kitty shoes. The detailing of the gold heel and the cat's jewel eyes are so pretty. It goes without saying that these would be my dream wedding shoes. It's a shame I don't have £620 to spend on wedding shoes though!


Rupert Sanderson Hamelin Heels
All credit goes to my friend Carrie from Couture Carrie for alerting me about the presence of these shoes. If it wasn't for her blog post a number of weeks ago I would never have known that these shoes even existed. There are no words that could possibly explain the extent of my love for these shoes. They combine my two favourite colours, the scalloped pattern is adorable and I love the mesh part. Wow they are just so incredible. I also noticed they come in black; the black pair is incredibly classy.


Tilly Rose Floral Ballet Flats
Tilly Rose flats are so pretty and exquisite. I first become aware of this brand while watching the television shopping network and I instantly fell in love. I adore the femininity, glamour and individuality of these shoes. The little touch of leopard print really adds to the floral design and makes these flats so much more special. Since I am always drawn to anything floral (and polka dot) these shoes naturally appealed to me.


Irregular Choice Patty Heels
 I have always loved any item of clothing, accessories or footwear that incorporates the union jack. I was so incredibly excited when I found these shoes. They are amazing and would make such a statement. These are without a doubbt the perfect shoe.  I love the heart detail at the centre of the union jack. I think its cool how this shoe comes in a few different colours. I can't decide whether I like the blue or black version the most and the polka dot version is very fun too. The versatility of the black version would be unrivalled. I have adored Irregular Choice ever since I first found the brand on Modcloth a couple of years ago.

Hi Imogen! Oh my goodness, how gorgeous are those white wedding shoes!!!! I've seen cat shoes but those are beyond amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone I saw (I think it is 'Scathingly brilliant' blog) did a tutorial on how to embroider you own cat pumps. If I remember, I'll try to look for the link at some point. Irregular choice also did a pair called 'Cheese on toast' which were cats. It's always worth checking on Ebay.

I love Irregular choice too and I have a floral version of these Patty flag shoes except mine have a perspex heel. They're somewhere in my archive under the label of Irregular choice!x

I'm in love with those Rupert Sanderson heels! So ladylike and sexy, but still classy. Great choices for shoe eye candy! Here's some look a like flats to those kitty shoes. It's still a little expensive due to shipping, but better than hundreds of dollars for the real thing!
