One thing that I'm admiring in several designers this season is their fresh use of pattern--geometric lines and shapes and textures--when creating a new shoe. Have ya noticed? I think that's what pulls my artsy eye toward Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs! Now, I say this acknowledging fully that I'm just not in the mood for funky-busy-color patterns every day of my funky-busy-color life...but today I'm in the mood for patterned perfection, and I just had to pass it on!
Lay your eyes on these babies, m'dears! This tied-up Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Gommone' platform may not say "all-day wear" to you, but it sure shows off one striking pattern to me! Spotted on a few Hollywood stars already this season, these Italian-made platforms are bursting at the seams with style (also check out this version of the M by MJ 'Gommone' platform...orrrr even the hot orange version).
I also just couldn't keep my eyes off of this mesmerizing, patterned Lucky Brand 'Koko' wedge. This tribal-inspired platform wedge is a versatile, neutral kick that will have heads turning your way! I adore the side/top buckle too--way'ta kick it up a notch, Lucky Brand!
If funkalicious patterns just aren't your thang, but you still dig bright color and a true standout shoe, I'll share with you that Marc Jacob's '605645' clog is another fave of mine this season (and ready for you to buy with FREE 2-day shipping on Endless right now! Woo!). A narrow lace-up down the middle & double studs on each side make this clog-like-lovely a shoe-in.
Here's my shout-out to my gorgeously long-legged readers: Marc's flower-adorned, low heel 'Posillipo' sandal! Yessss, finally a low heel on the HinH blog--you cannot believe it, I know! Well, at under $300 (a deal for Jacobs' shoes) this freshly flowered shoe can be yours to add to your spring/summer sandal collection. A dash of color + hints of metallic make this a great all-day & any-occasion find.
So whether these peppy patterns and stunning colors are merely eye-candy to you, orrr you're just now hitting the 'add to cart' button--you have to admit these kicks are pretty darned fun! Enjoy, shoe-sistas!
