Lollapalooza Dos & Don’ts

With one of the largest music festivals in the world happening this weekend in Chicago, there’s a lot of good, bad, and down right crazy about to go on at Lollapalooza. I’m sure you’ve gotten your fair share of “what to wear to a music festival” posts, last year I shared my Lollapalooza essentials (which go for any music festival, really) and this year I’m doing something a little different.

Get To The Point

We’ve been seeing quite the influx of pointed toe heels when it comes to celebrity fashion and street style. The runwways, however, have been a different story. Prada gave us these clunkers for Fall ’12 and Celine is showing what I like to call foot-shoes for Spring ’13.

But don’t you think these are much more flattering than a chunky platform?

20 Years of Red Soles

To celebrate 20 years of red soles, Christian Louboutin launched a special edition 20th anniversary collection. As you can imagine coming from someone like Louboutin, this collection is over-the-top and statement worthy. However, some of the styles are even a little too much for me!

You be the judge…

Seems like something Rihanna would try and pull off…and would ultimately fail.

Seems like something Alexa Chung would try and pull off…and would succeed.

These are actually pretty awesome. No complaints. Unfortunately I’m assuming a Kardashian already owns them…

PhotobucketIsolde 160 patent-leather sandals

I call these the Momsen. You know why.

PhotobucketArmadillo Bride 120 leather pumps

No armadillos were harmed in the making of these shoes. They’re kinda like Beetlejuice gone upscale, no?

If these were in black I’d be ALL OVER them.

Beyonce can wear these while performing on stage, at a basketball game, or even running errands with baby Blue. These look like they’d be her “everyday shoe.”

If you could have just one pair from this 20th anniversary collection, which one would it be?

Currently Obsessing Over: Prada Flames

There is nothing I love more than a really unique pair of shoes. Whether they’re actually worn or just admired on a shelf, shoes are what make me the happiest. And the Prada flame heels are no exception.

So between the car prints and the flames, Prada Spring ’12 was a stand-out collection…especially the accessories. I was beyond thrilled when I found out that the shoes from the collection were actually made into production! When it comes to certain avant-garde accessories, they’re not always made into production or picked up by a store so it can be disappointing after waiting months for the piece to become available…and it never does.

But thankfully the fashion gods were on my side for Prada Spring ’12 and the flame heels are definitely happening. Take a look at some of my favorites from the collection…

(my #1 pick)

Are you into the Prada flames for Spring ’12? If they’re too much for you but you like the idea, try the thong sandals…perfect way to subtly incorporate some flames into your shoe collection (and an acceptable way to wear flip flops beyond the beach).
