Spotted some statement wedges at journalist networking event ‘Off the Record’. Turns out they belong to the awesome Jennifer Howze, co-founder of BritMums, blogger and journalist.
An excellent example of how great statement shoes don’t always have to be designer. Jennifer found these in her home state Texas in the USA. They are by Spanish brand Moda.
What I like most is how she’s matched the netted tights with an open toe wedge. The whiteness of the wedge is also in a very clean condition, I wander if she did a “me” and travelled to the sushi bar in spare flats?

Gwyneth Paltrow donated a pair of her own Mojito shoes by Julian Hakes for the Stand Up to Cancer campaign.

Julian Hakes designs unique pair of shoes inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s character Pepper Potts in Disney’s latest film, Iron Man 3.
Julian Hakes explains:
“Because of my design and engineering background, I’ve always been fascinated by Tony Stark in Marvel’s Iron Man comic books and films. The ‘Mojito’ shoe is a result of an architectural driven process.
After realising that only the heel and ball of the feet require support to maximise comfort, I created many different prototypes before arriving at the ‘Mojito’ design - perhaps even rivalling the number of suits created by Tony Stark!”

My Aqua by Aqua dress to go with my Mascotte heels.
It could definitely do with a big statement necklace and my hair down. Anybody statement jewellery suggestions??

Leaf print court shoe by Mascotte
The international shoe brand finally reaches the UK and the first store opened last Saturday at Westfield London. That’s the Shepherds Bush one because I always mix it up with the Stratford one.
The leaf print shoes are the ones that I picked up. I recommend popping in store to see them, they look and feel much better in reality. You can actually feel the leaf outline on the shoe and they much richer in colour and more regal.
Not yet available online, but available now in store from sizes UK 2.5 EUR 35 - UK 7.5 EUR 41.
Wedge with green crystals and geometric design
British shoe lovers, did you know that the Julian Hakes mojito shoe is now available at Schuh? It is the perfect summer shoe, where your feet will have no trouble breathing.

Daniele Michetti Fall 2013
The Cora heels in burgundy. The hint of a dominatrix, very well combined with Geometric shapes and a deep blood red.
The Candis shoes that are next are my favourite. More prominent geometric shapes with sharp colour contracts with monochrome and black.
Both shoes are attractively statement. Want one? He is currently retailing through Luisaviaroma. But you can also contact sales through his website here: http://www.michettidaniele.com/
Michetti is a curious one. Contacts show that that his showrooms are in New York, but I’ve been shrewd enough to spot that he’s registered the company in North Finchley, London in the UK. That’s where I went to school! I shall definitely drop the man an email. Please show Michetti some love x
