HOW TO WEAR: BOOTIES - LACE-UP & WEDGE

Been searching all over some kick-ass booties (black of course!) to buy, and I found sooo many! I realised that not everyone goes for this sort of thing because some of the designs can be so outrageous! But I managed to narrow it down to peep-toe lace-up ones & wedge booties that are not overly trendy. Although, I've seen a gazillion knock-offs of last season's Alexander Wang Frejha booties & I've included one of them. So, to wedge or not to wedge? And more importantly, what to wear with them?

Wedge Booties

Giuseppe Zanotti wedge booties, Bebe Dolly wedge booties, Joe's Jeans wedge booties

A staple in Rumi Neely's closet, take a style tip from her & wear these with practically anything flowy - flowy long sleeve dresses from Topshop or maxi skirts from Urban Outfitters.







Lace-up Peeptoe Booties

Since these are regular heels, they pretty much go with anything. Best advice: pick a lengthening silhouette like a tapered pant from Topshop to make you taller & to show off the incredible details on the shoes!!

  4. Thank you for the lovely comments! I am absolutely obsessed with the Giuseppe Zanotti wedges since the moment I laid eyes on them! They were the inspiration for my shoes in the post http://www.laplacard.com/2010/10/ur-gonna-drive-me-crazay.html
