Fearless Friday: Georgina Goodman Purple Platform Shoes

I wish I could say this is a photo of my tanned foot dressed in this stunning Georgina Goodman shoe…but alas, I took this image from DulceShoes.net, where you can buy these babies for $800.  With a 5.5 inch heel and 1 inch platform, Georgina Goodman Nelson pumps will ensure you are seen and envied.  Shoutout to my girl @uniquebreeze for bringing them to my attention on ShoeHunting!

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. Runway model wears similar boot style in Christopher Kane’s A/W 2010 show.  Photo credit: (read more)
