Shoe candy: Karen Millen Colourful Raffia Platform Sandal

Let’s start (a tad late) this week with something new and blue:

Karen Millen Colourful Raffia Platform Sandal

I am not totally sure where the “colourful” came from but I am definitely sold on the beige and blue as well as the pattern. While it probably takes a bit of tan and a drop of red nail polish in order for your feet not to disappear, I definitely find these sandals cute enough to put in an effort at the both.

Shoe candy SS’12: Karen Millen

Karen Millen has started the new season in a colourful, bright and graphical way, just the way we want it and need it after a way too much quality time with our winter footwear (which is unfortunately far from over, considering the forecasted -30 Celsius in my part of the world for the next week brrrrrr…).

Anyhow, these models caught my eye:

Karen Millen Colourful Court Shoe

A classical platform peep-toe in coral leather and with black stitching – elegant and modern at the same time. This should go great with a lot –  black, white, gray, summer dresses, cocktail dresses, black costume pants and a shirt, blue jeans yada yada  which makes the shoe very versatile, assuming you have at least the slightest hint of a summer tan on your feet.

 

Karen Millen Butterfly Print Shoes

At the first glance, before zooming in at the product picture, the butterfly print reminded me of Alexander McQueen skulls the way they looked a couple of years ago (not necessarily a bad thing in my world). Anyhow, I like the fact that the butterflies are not too sugery-sweet but rather a pattern an adult woman with good taste in shoes actually can wear. An adult woman who likes to have some fun though, judging from the red heel and detailing.

 

Karen Millen Modern Classsic Shoe Boot

No bright colours, patterns or other cute details in sight, no. We just have a classical combination of black and nude. But honestly, in the beginning of the season that we know will be filled with all the colours of the rainbow, butterflies and bows this is just too sleek and sexy to resist.
