Fearless Friday: Christopher Kane Flower Embroidered Lace Up Boots

From Christopher Kane‘s Fall/Winter 2010 collection, this boot is the perfect mix of sexy and sweet.  Beautiful embroidered flowers and vines climb up the heel and sides of the cutout boot, and contrast sharply against the black leather.  The Scottish designer cited juvenile delinquents as the influence for his latest creations, and his goal was to use flowers in an unconventional way to convey irony.  I just love it!  But with a price tag of $1,428 at luisaviaroma.com you’d have to be fearless to buy them.

Fearless Friday: Lady Gaga Wears Towering Heelless Platforms

Photos from DailyMail

The photos and critiques of Lady Gaga’s choice of footwear are all over the Internet, but there’s no question about it – these hoof-like shoes she wore to her sister’s graduation are truly FEARLESS.  I admire her for her bold, in-your-face attitude, and while she apparently had no trouble walking in these monstrosities, those shoes are just asking for an accident.  I mean, what if anything is appealing about these heelless shoes?  And I think it’s pretty inappropriate to wear something like this to your sister’s graduation, no matter who you are:

Fearless Friday: Gianmarco Lorenzi Snake Charmer Swarovski Stiletto Pumps

Have you ever seen a shoe so breathtaking?!  These Gianmarco Lorenzi Swarovski crystal-embellished pumps have held me under their spell for some time now.  I can’t stop staring at the gleaming snake eyes or the amazing high arches, and the rich color…to die for!  Handcrafted in Italy, these pumps are more art than footwear, and they are fit for an Egyptian queen (or goddess).  Who else could be majestic enough to do justice to the glass snake embellishment wrapped around each towering stiletto heel?  I’ve searched all over the internet and can’t find them except in a size 37 on ebay for $950.  I want them just so I can gaze at them in person all day, as they sit safely in a glass case on my dresser.

These seductive Gianmarco Lorenzi pumps have been getting a lot of attention on ShoeHunting!  See what others are saying about them.  More shoe images below the jump…

Fearless Friday: Dolce Vita ‘Trinity’ Studded Platform Pumps

Dolce Vita Trinity Studded Pumps on Hidden Platform

Say goodbye to your basic black pumps, and say hello to these studded stunners I found on shopbop.com!  Never have I seen a pump that was so demure, sexy and rough all at the same time.  The Dolce Vita ‘Trinity’ proves that you can rock shoes that have studs without going all-out goth or “rocker”.  Just think of them as the new “little black dress” in your shoe closet, and wear them to a party, on date night or to the office.  Whether you pair them with a tunic and leggings, a dress or skinny jeans, the ‘Trinity’ will give your style quotient a nice kick in the rear.  Features a round toe, tiny studs all over, 1″ hidden platform and 4.5″ stacked heel.

This ‘Trinity’ is also available in a soft Grigio Grey/Navy color here: Dolce Vita Trinity Studded Suede Pumps on Hidden Platform

And I’m not the only one who’s smitten…fashion bloggers have been gushing over the ‘Trinity’ left and right, and Kasey of Bay Area Style File even wrote an open letter to these studded pumps expressing her love.  Get your own pair of Dolce Vita Trinity Studded Pumps on Hidden Platform for $210, an amazingly good price for these standout shoes.
