18 - Military Green Bootie

Military Green Bootie, with a gray platform and stiletto heel and shoe string buckles, making it the perfect shoe for your Fall trench-coat-and-leather-pants wardrobe. 

Question: Are you interested in me posting shoe designs inspired by YOUR INDIVIDUAL ideas (such as image links, concepts, etc.)? Let me know in the comment box!


17 - Crystal Waterfall Platform Bootie

Apologies for lack of updates, I was having photo-editing problems but all is well again. Here is my Crystal Waterfall Platform Bootie, in white/baby blue with a crystal embellished ankle and a draped back.

Thoroughly impressed with the creative shoes I saw from New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion Week, so check back for my next post where I'll include a brief round-up of my favorite pieces as well as a new shoe.


16 - Crystal Ballerina Heel

A variation of my Pink Ballerina Heeled Sandal, with a crystal decorated sole (that continues/doubles as a strap), that encircles the foot with sheer silk organza.


15 - Strapped Knee-High Boots

Two pointed knee-high boots in suede with a stiletto heel. The forest green boot on the left has straps buckled to the front that drape down the back; The navy boot on the right is wrapped with adjustable straps.


14 - Pearl Lined Pattern Heel (2)

Here comes a second version of my previous post, where the straps and toe-cap are printed with a diamond pattern and lined with miniature pearls, followed by sheer purple organza scrunched around the back of the heel. This is 2 of 5, more coming soon!


13 - Pearl Lined Diamond Patterned Heel (1)

A heel where the straps and toe-cap are printed with a diamond pattern and lined with miniature pearls, followed by sheer purple organza around the ankle cuff. This is 1 of 5, with more coming very soon.


12 - NYFW's Best Shoes (Part 1)

New York Fashion Week is currently underway and half the internet is eager to see the latest collections and to spot the upcoming trends of next Spring. However, with so many designers and so many looks and so many backstage shots and so many front row pictures to review, let's be real. It's an exhausting task.

So for those of you who want the easy way out (in terms of footwear), I present to you the works of three designers who must not be ignored due to their, dare I say, absolutely perfect shoes from their Spring 2014 Ready To Wear collections.

Rag and Bone, which is wearable without sacrificing style. 

Prabal Gurung, who reinvented the "classic" we all have enough of in our closets already.

Rebecca Minkoff, whose lace ups are just damn genius. 

Then again, these are choices based on my dislike for the "less is more" rule when it comes to shoes. Are you as blown away by these as I? Or is less really more after all.

11 - Over The Knee Chiffon Sandals

Two different red and gray over-the-knee sandals, as a fun and feminine design inspired by this year's popular over-the-knee gladiator/sandal trend (as you may already be familiar with from designers such as Tom Ford, Versace, Alexander Wang, and more). Would you wear either of these?


10 - Sailor Heel

A dark blue pointed heel, with a thick rope that braids around the ankle cuff and falls behind the back of the heel, reining in the chained sheer chiffon. If that makes any sense.


9 - Gold Studded Red Wedge

A gold studded red wedge, with a slightly more intense heel-height than what I imagine it would have in real life. Yay or nay? Judge away.


8 - Floral Strapped Bootie

After two dark designs comes a happier one. A fun, fresh, and feminine floral strapped bootie, where the pink floral and the miniature white pearl encrusted front flap is attached to the gray bootie by straps that zig-zag around it.


7 - Leather Panel Wedge

To celebrate my return to New York tonight (home sweet home), comes a shoe that ultimately captures everything you could ever want from footwear in the city right now. A black leather panel wedge. Black because New Yorkers are all about black (no matter what you're told otherwise), leather because it's still in season (hallelujah!), and a wedge because in a city where walking 40 blocks a day is normal, stilettos (or sparkly UGGs for that matter) just won't make the cut.

I also want to thank those who have visited AtYourHeels! I haven't checked out most of your blogs yet because I've been busy with packing, and chances are I will be equally busy settling in this week, so I ask you to bear with me and I promise I'll be making visits and leaving comments soon!


6 - Gray Three Strap Bootie

Gray three strap bootie, made out of leather. Suede. Patent. Who knows. Perfect for those of you who want an upgrade from plain black booties.


5 - Bead Twined Sandals

In celebration of the black strappy sandal trend (quick! before it ends) and the fact that a month-long period of rainstorms in Norway has come to an end (back on my summer grind), I present to you something a little more cohesive than my lonely shoes so far; five slinky BEAD-twined strappy sandals. Personally, I like the second and fifth one the most. Which is your favorite?

PS. Click the image for a closer look.


4 - Purple Feathered Sandal

The goal for my work is that the shoe should be able to be worn with the simplest outfit, and make it cool and not boring. This sandal definitely achieves the purpose, with a feathered and bejeweled front, held back by straps that stretch behind the sole and meet at the back of the heel.


3 - Triple Buckle Boot

Triple buckle boot in gray and black leather. This might not actually work.. Then again, chances are it very well might.


2 - Pink Ballerina Heeled Sandal

Summer's almost over but there's no rules to blogging so here's the ultimate spring shoe; A strapped gray leather heeled sandal with a miniature platform, encircled with pink gathered organza. The "ballerina" shoe if you like. Check back tomorrow for a less feminine look!


1 - Says I

A knock-out pair of shoes are the most crucial element of any outfit. Agree or disagree, yet it's impossible to deny that even the most stylish ensemble is ruined by your poor choice of footwear. 

While squeezing into your jeans is a daily battle, and dresses are a crime to wear more than once (or twice), shoes remain a solid match for anyone as long as they physically fit your foot (with or without an additional sole if need be), guaranteed to transform by making good outfits great, and bad ones better. And if your awful outfit is still just plain awful, well, at least your sparkly shoes are a distraction from what should otherwise be left unseen.

That being said, I must admit I lack this incredible shoe closet I speak of. Too picky to settle and too broke to buy, I convey my passion through my sketches instead, hoping that one day I may be able to create these Dorothy's heels I speak of.
