Spring Summer 12 season brought us brand new hot shoe trend: metallic toe caps. Ever since Louis Vuitton show had toe caps on shoes of all shapes and colours I fell in love and looking at the pictures above who would not? Indeed it has been a while that pointy shoes were off the fashion chart but now with the toe cap update they are back and they are big!
And it is not just Louis Vuitton – many other designers and high street already adopted the trend and made a wide range of beauities to choose from whatever your budget:
- Giuseppe Zanotti, Toe Cap Pump, £360
- Christian Louboutin Duvette 120, also available in nude
- Mango Toe Cap Pump, £75
- Sinner Contrast Toecap Points, £62 at Topshop
- Gilmore2 Metallic Toecap Points, £60 at Topshop
But the one I am the most excited to see hit the shops is the Kurt Geiger version from their campaign poster: white sling backs with metal toe cap and medium heel height, those are perfect for day-to-night summer wear and are definitely worthy of my summer fashion wish list.
I am sure is a month time, when the weather heats up you will see them everywhere! The only question is: would you go for classic black, summery white or trendy pastel shade?

Christian Louboutin never ceases to amuse the world with his creativity. And even when he is engulfed in the law suit with YSL over the red soles, or because of it, he still designs pieces that will go down in the history of fashion. The best part – you can own a bit of it yourself.
Like the Artemis Studded Python Shoulder bag above (£1,345) is the epitome of creativity as it combines an edgy evening bag with a jeweled studded shoulder pad. Magnificence is in the simplicity of the idea. And what I like the most is that unlike most other creative top of the range evening bags (think of Stella McCartney Oval Plexiglass bag) this one is actually a bag i.e. it can carry all your evening essentials.
And secondly there is a fantastic Alex Paw Shoe that looks like, you guessed it, a paw from the front and is supported by beautiful Swarovski heel. Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted wearing those to the last months premier of I Don’t Know How She Does It in Moscow while Blake Lively strolled around New York in them this weekend. And even if it was not for the celebrity endorsement, I would still be dying to have a pair of those crazy creative shoes. But unlike celebrities we have to wait for them to come on sale and to find out the price.

Thigh high boots have recently reemerged as a new hot fashion item. And it is not just one brand – they are everywhere. Burberry has the pointy high heeled black leather boots, Dior made its biker boot into a thigh high (my favourite designer version, I must admit), Givenchy has a pointed Mary-Jane stretched jersey boots and Christian Louboutin has brown military-looking Chasse boots.
And while the designer versions mentioned above are absolutely stunning they will set you back by at least £800. So if you want to follow the hot trend on the budget I found a perfect Thigh High on the high street (on the picture above):
BUNNY2 PU Stretch Thigh High Boots in black for just £75 from http://www.topshop.com. Great size of the heel – not too high allowing comfortable wear for hours. Love, love, love!
