Midnight Stilettos

Who on earth can resist these towering platform stilettos? With a rounded almond toe and a dangerously sharp stiletto heel, a front platform and a slinky curved edge design, this pair of heels is a showstopper.  We haven’t even started on the color yet, which is so in season this fall – dreamy midnight blue. Can you keep them on until midnight?

Although these shoes are subtle, they aren’t everday wear – save the Veberova high heel for a special occasion when you need to turn heads.  Also available in black nubuck to partner with a killer LBD. Now available for just £80 from Aldoshoes.com.

Beautiful Bordeaux Boots

The sun may still be shining but the leaves are also beginning to turn…fall is just around the corner, which means one thing for shoe addicts: stocking up on beautiful boots!  This pair comes in a range of gorgeous autumn colours, but our favourite is the Bordeaux. Just like a fine red wine, these chunky heeled beauties make an impact.

As lace up high heeled ankle boots go, the Serinna design from Aldo has to be one of the best.  Get yours in time for fall from Aldo.com, £80.

Make My Mouth Water

Aldo have done it again with these luscious peach red and sultry snakeskin high heeled sandals. Made from lustrous leather, the beautiful reptile pattern, stiletto platform and chic ankle strap command attention. The contrast towering heel, elegantly slim spike, and chunky ankle strap with lux metallic buckle are sensual, sophisticated, stylish. The ‘look at me’ peach simply shrieks ‘notice me now’. All that with a 4.5 heel, open toe and delicate platform make these a red carpet winner. No special event coming up? How about a Tuesday? Or Friday? Whatever the excuse, these deliciously decadent Pavlasovas are the answer. Head to Aldo to buy in peach or eternally elegant black. $125.00 from Aldoshoes.com

Nude Hues

There is something eternally chic about a nude high heel. If we were glass half empty kind of girls, we may say that nude shoes are a bit, well…. Bland. Especially when you consider all the rainbow bright, fluro colors that could be decorating one’s feet. Not to mention prints, stripes, polka dots and embellishments by the bucket load. BUT we are glass half full kind of girls and let us be the first to say, nothing is cooler than going nude.

A neutral hue is a blank canvas and that makes it incredibly versatile – so a nude or vanilla shoe is one that can go with anything. That makes a nude show incredibly exciting as it can be paired with the most outrageous or classic of ensembles and like a Hollywood ingénue, never look out of place. That’s good for your poor old bank account too because a nude show can be worn season after season, year after year – because it doesn’t have any of the outrageous appeal of an acid yellow, it can adapt and be adapted, making the shoe more of an investment than a one season only deal.

And did we mention the leg lengthening benefits? Yes, that’s right girls. If you’ve long since lusted after pins that even Giselle would envy, slip on one of our top nude picks and gain inches way above the 4 or 5 inches the heel supposedly measures. It’s an optical illusion for  sure but trust us, once you dare to go bare, you’ll never look back.

Stack It Up

Wedges are having a moment. A fashion moment, if you will. While there’s no denying that strappy, sexy sandals have the power to make any girl feel like a goddess, wedges are just summer in a shoe as far as we’re concerned.

Aldo’s Carnett sports a towering 5.25 inch high heel and  1.5 inch platform

With hazy days filled with sunshine, trips to the beach and long evenings outdoors chilling, eating and drinking in the last of the day’s rays, comes a desire to be a little more comfortable. We’re not saying flats – perish the thought – but there’s something comfortingly practical about wedges. There’s no height lost so we don’t have to re-consider any of our usual wardrobe choices and they pair just as well with shorts as jeans. In fact, wedges are great for smartening up a day-to-night look without sacrificing any easy breezy summer vibes.

The Reva is also high and under $60 but adds a dressed up element to a summer look

The stacked heel makes running off to the beach easy and they’re comfortable enough to stand up to a summer in the city too thanks to the extra expansive of support the chunky soles provide. All in all, if the sun is shining, we say, Stack it Up!

All That Glitters is Not Gold

Pretty, happy things. Those are the first words that come to mind when staring (adoringly) at these silver Heather platforms from Aldo. As pretty as Cinderella’s slipper, as sparkly as Gollum’s ring, these are heels you can strut in. Lounge artfully on the sofa in. Sit for hours and admire your reflection in.

At 5.5 inches, they aren’t for the faint of heart. There is a risk that you’ll spend the evening walking like Bambi on ice so high do the heels soar but, we’re pretty sure all eyes will be on the rhinestones anyway. Almost every inch of the satin pump is bedazzled, giving a disco ball-esque shine that catches the light with every strut. The peep toe adds a further touch of glamour, if one were needed. If silver isn’t your thing, the Heather also comes in a multi-metallic light bronze option.

Super high? Check. Platform? Check. Rhinestones? Check. Race you to the checkout. The Heather platform pumps are available online from Aldo, priced at $125.00
