Tuesday Shoesday: Shoes that Fool the Eye

Tromp l’oeil (French for ‘fool the eye’) sock-in-shoe looks are a great trend for fall to give your summer shoes some extra mileage as it gets colder. Take your favorite pair of cut-out booties or sandals and just add an unexpected pop of color or mix in a print with your socks! Here are some pre-made trompe l’oeil shoes to inspire you!

Tuesday Shoesday: Taupe-of-the-Line Neutrals

Taupe is a vague color term which may be used to refer to almost any variation of warm gray color. This neutral can be a really versatile alternative to black and brown when it comes to accessorizing! See how we pair some studded taupe boots with our champagne-hued druzy necklace for some neutrals that are anything but boring!

Tuesday Shoesday: Architectural

ZAHA-hadid-shoe

The NOVA shoe designed by Zaha Hadid and United Nude. £1,300

Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid created these sculptural structured shoes in collab with luxury shoe magnate Stuart Weitzman. Crafted from metallic chromed vinyl rubber, fibreglass makes up the platform and heel, while inside they are lined with kid leather. This shoe led me on a hunt for more intersections between the structure of architecture and footwear design:
