Ten T-Straps that Talk For You

Want to make a point but not quite sure how to make it?

Look no further. Its all in the shoes. I’ve selected ten fantastic T-Strap shoes that will do the talking for you.
Leticia

J.Garten shoe above.

To explain why I chose T-Straps I will start with an analogy, T-Straps are to Sexy as Mary Janes are to Adorable. Why? A number of reasons. For instance, the shoe design is simple yet functional and there is something luring about the strap running up the top of your foot. Just like the rule of “showing skin” applies to clothing, it also applies to footwear.  By this, I mean, show the skin that’s appropriate and use clothing (and footwear) to literally- tease the eye. Drawing the eye up with the strap- downright sexy.  The perfect balance of classy and sexy makes it one of my absolute favorite styles. Nevertheless, there is a T-Strap for every statement.  If you see something you like, just click on it for a closer look.


Madrid - Orange/Yellow

1. I’m confident, smart, and creative- don’t mess with me. These shoes are for a woman that says what she means and means what she says. I would wear this with dark skinny jeans and a black top or a long slimming black dress to some place new and artsy- i.e. gallery opening, new restaurant, etc.  Or I would wear this if I just felt like saying, my shoes are loud, I’ve got attitude, you got a problem with that?
Malaya Heel - Black
2.  I may not be smarter than you, but my shoes are. People get senile so brains go away, looks go away, everything goes away. One of the only things that people really can keep forever is their style and hopefully, their wardrobe. Thus, I would wear these shoes if I knew I would be seeing someone who thinks they’re smarter than me and always tries to be-little my awesome insights.  The point being- you may be book smart, but I’m style smart and really, that’s a million times more valuable.


Skittle - Pink/Black Pat
3.  I’m a Rockstar, so don’t try to keep up, you’ll hurt yourself sweetheart… These are so confident and oh-so bold. If I saw a girl at a party wearing these I would be watching her all night because she would be the first one to start dancing on the coffee table. If you’re going to wear these, be ready for a fun night and a lot of attention.


Frisco T-strap - Honey

4.  I’m simple, yet complicated, and undeniably gorgeous. The lines are classic, yet unique.  The buckle is small and simple.  The monochromatic color can even blend with the foot from a distance.  Beautiful, simple, and for any woman who wants to instantly feel like “a natural woman”…
Brandy T-strap - Red
5.  I am one sexy mother f*er who is in the mood to make some naughty decisions tonight. If you want to say- I’m hot, single (or just bored of my current relationship) and you should probably buy me a drink tonight– these are you’re shoes. Whenever I wear red shoes- I always get free drinks: coincidence?- I think not.

Allan Heel - Gold
6.  I’m kind of a big deal so you’re lucky to be hanging out with me. This shoe is for a more high- maintenance mama.  They are downright stunning and definitely for an occasion where you want to show off a little. If you’re wearing them out for a girls night, they definitely say that you’re the hot one of the group and you know it (there’s always a “hot” one).  If you’re wearing them out on a dinner date they say, “I’m having the most expensive thing on the menu, I’ll probably only eat a bite, and you’re paying for it .”

983908 Heel - Pearl

7.  I’m the classiest female in the room– hands down. The moment I laid eyes on these, I fell in love. These shoes make me want to wear Ralph Lauren, pearls,  and tie a sweater around my neck- no joke.  There are tons of cute little details that don’t do the picture justice so click on them to get a better look.  They are adorable, comfortable, and pure feminine class.

Class 10 - Silver
8.  I’m short, sassy, and I’ve got sh*t to do. I usually wear flats when I’m in a no-nonsense mood. Heels naturally take more energy to dress, wear, and walk in; thus, if I feel like my day is going to be filled with running errands, standing, or other practical serious things I usually wear flats.  These ones are very comfortable, still trendy and feminine.


9.  I’m so sexy, I should probably be illegal.  In fact you can’t even look at me unless your over the age of 18 I’m so hot. If you think these shoes look hot in the picture,  you may just fall in love with yourself all over again if you put them on.  Wear them out to dinner with a little black dress if you want to say, I’m dangerously sexy so buy me jewelery.
Carline Heel - Natural

10. People love me and I’m pretty much to cutest female on the planet. A natural snake print upper features a silver leather trim with a peep toe front detailed with a luscious t-strap design attached to an adjustable ankle strap sitting above a 3/4 inch stacked platform and silver 4 inch heel. The shoes are downright adorable and even comfortable.  I saw a girl wearing these in a restaurant bathroom one time and I almost asked her to go out with me on a date so she could meet my parents I fell so in love.  Point being- they’re adorable and feminine.

Note to the shorter and the wiser – Take note of how you wear the shoes. Due to the fact that the design puts a strap around the ankle, shorter ones should pair the shoes with bottoms that are more slimming and elongating to avoid a choppy effect of the ankle strap. Bottom line, avoid tight mini skirts and capris- it will make your legs look shorter.

Heels that could kick some ass. . .

main

I once went to this self defence seminar in college where the instructor told the women in the room that if we were ever put into a situation where we needed to defend ourselves- one of our best weapons can potentially be our awesome footwear.  He’s right.  They can kick ass in more ways then one. Rar.

The step by step plan for using your heels as weapons is this:

Step 1: Spray the bastard with mase or perfume or anything that they might think is mase to potentially distract them.

Step 2: Remove your beautiful footwear.  (Strappy ones are harder so hopefully you’ve sprayed a lot of mase)

Step 3: Hit the bastard with your shoes relentlessly until you’ve had enough or he’s had enough- this depends on how pissed you are usually. (Focus on using the pointy part of your heel, this may be used to jab into their eyes of groin area in a stabbing manner).

Step 4: Strike a wonder woman pose and then run like hell (This is significantly easier when you don’t have heels on; hence, the beauty of step 2).

Now, here are some shoes for the upcoming season that I think could kick some serious asault ass.

Love the shoes, but lets just hope you’re never in the position to have to use ’em to defend yourself, k? Anyone who tries to mess will definately get a stiletto kick to the jollies that’s for sure!

Bondage Shoes, Celebs, and Christian Louboutin Stappy Loves of My Life

Definitely, a harder shoe to dress because there is  a lot going on and you don’t want to overdo it or look dominatrixy (if that’s not your area of work-if it is, more power to you!).  When it comes to dressing a bondage shoe, there are a couple schools of thought: you either need to commit to the theme or go completely opposite. Check out what I mean:

Bradshaw Bondagesupermodel-alessandra-ambrosio-in-elle-magazine

So when in doubt what is a girl to do? First of all, don’t be in “doubt” if your wearing a bondage style shoe because the shoe is meant to be worn with extraordinary confidence- like all heels but especially these. So if you are in doubt- not sure if the outfit goes together or not, take a picture of it on your (use the timer on your camera, clueless style!), look at it and make the call- go with your instinct.  If you are still not sure, put the pic on twitpic and ask your followers what they think- take everything with a grain of salt because you should always just go with you gut on the outfit. Then once you’ve decided what to wear, own it- wear it like you were born to wear it -like the badass bondage chick you are.   That’s my advice.  In essence don’t worry to much about it because shoes aren’t meant to be too serious anyway- they’re meant to be fun.

Now, on to more important things like the shoes themselves.  Here are some celebs in variations of the style:

Christian Louboutin shoes on all these ladies.

If you don’t have about $1500 to spare on Christian Louboutin then the next best copy cat I’ve seen is by Guess:

Credenza - Black Patent


“Credenza” by Guess

And then when it comes to other bondage type shoes, these ladies are my favs for the price. You think they look hot now you must try them on and  you may just catch on fire. (cheesy, I’m so cheesy sometimes). 

Marianela - Black


“Marianela” by Baby Phat


Xiomara - Black/Gold Stud


“Xiomara” by N.Y.L.A.


Gazelle - Black Leather


“Gazelle” from Charles by Charles David


Star Bound - Black

Just remember to keep it classy.

If Social Networks Were Shoes. . .

If social networks were shoes, what would they be?

blahnik

Twitter Valuation approx. $150 MM = 218,978 Pairs of these shoes.

Twitter is attractive to the 20 something plus generation as opposed to the other social networks which first caught on with the college kids, bands, and high school students.

It keeps it simple, sweet, and to the point- 140 characters or less. Nevertheless, it is addicting and spending too much time on it bad for you-quite frankly, much like a high heel.  Also, with twitter you either get it or you don’t. You either know how to use twitter and write purposeful tweets that add value to your followers lives or you are someone that doesn’t get it or doesn’t care to get it and writes tweets that even your closest friends don’t really care about (i.e you just went to the bathroom or some nonsense). So, with shoes and fashion- you either get it, or you don’t. Finally, like Manolo Blahnik, twitter just came out of nowhere hitting the mass market.  It wasn’t until Sex and The City that everyone knew that these glorious shoes exhisted. Thus, this shoe follows those notes. Its simple, to the point, somewhat quirky, even flirtatious, you either get it or you don’t, and the brand just came out of no where. Thus, twitter shoes by Mr. Blahnik.

Facebook Valuation Approx. $15 B = 474,233,322 pairs of these shoes.

You can connect with a lot of people and get a lot done on this social network. Facebook is for fun and playing.  Nevertheless, I love the useful-ness and practicality of it. It gets you from point A-B quickly and can become your tool to getting things done-like sending out invitations to an event, promoting a cause, or even fundraising. Also, Facebook is all about your memories and connecting with your friends (old and new), exploring who you are, and remembering the good ole days- especially with those pictures. . . “De-Tagg! Please!” Nevertheless, Facebook shoes are an every day shoe.  They get you where you need to go quickly with a little bit of nostalgia along the way.

Myspace Valuation Approx. $3.174 B = 1,872,566 Pairs of these shoes.

Myspace is kind of tacky and a little bit gaudy.  From from my point of view- way too high maintenance. Sometimes moves too slow for me and often attacks a lot of creepers trying to be my friend. Not to be played with much, but when I do I either quit quickly or I become addicted to perfecting my profile and it becomes an all night affair that I know I’ll grow to regret the next day- serious waste of time sometimes. Nevertheless, its somewhat over the top, kind of obnoxious, and full of unnecessary nonsense. Although myspace is fantastic and a pioneer, much like Mr. Louboutin, they both still manage to create something strange and completely unnecessary. Both of which are very proud of this.

Linkedin Valuation Approx. $1 B = 11,235,955 pairs of these shoes.

Promising, young, and opportunistic. Sexy from a financial standpoint and its a pretty good deal. Multiple revenue streams and potential others ahead. The Linkedin shoe is about transforming the business professional and using one’s reputation and image to leverage more growth and business for that individual. Thus, the shoes are powerful in statement and impact, yet smart, classic, and priced at a great value. Nevertheless, they are still very different and trendy.

My inspiration for this post comes from Allison Driscoll at www.high.heels.com Her obsession with purses is comparable to my obsession with high heels. I thought I’d love to help her write a piece more suitable for her high heel blog following a similar concept. Although she did an amazing job matching the purse to the network, we may have different takes and views of the social networks; thus different metaphorical styles in comparison… Let me know what you think Allison!
