They’re quirky, unique, cute-as-a-button and …. fingers crossed … hurt-less. And they’re on FRANCE LANOO’s WISHLIST OF SUMMER-2016 SHOES. Check them out:
FENDI flowery sandal: a statement shoe suitable for a girlie-girl brunch on a street-side patio, or an artsy garden party at the quirky home of an eccentric acquaintance.
Side Note: a blue mini-dress and cherry red lipstick would be exceptional complements to this stand-out style.
ACNE STUDIOS nude leather bootie with a knock-out futuristic heel: a sleek style suitable for attending a work-related event in a heavily air-conditioned room, or an outdoor social engagement on an unusually cool summer day.
Side Note: remember to slip on a pair of thin socks underneath, for some added warmth.
MARNI multi-material slingback sandals: an every-day work shoe well-suited when desiring to add pizzazz to a pair of jeans or simple black capris.
Side Note: do they, or do they not, scream, ” You gotta love me”?
CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION white slip-on sneaker: a weekend walk-in-the-park shoe easily made snazzy by attaching some gold or silver bling.
Side Note: best worn with a translucent metallic tank-top and a super-cute pair of geometric-print short-shorts.
CHANEL clear booties: stylish and cute, and suitable for rainy-day-running, all around the city.
Side Note: a clear umbrella would be a nice all-in-the-family touch.
CHRISTIAN DIOR formal pump with buckled ankle ties: suitably worn to a chi-chi black-tie event, or a runway fashion show. All eyes will be on them.
Side Note: the accompanying evening dress needs to terminate well above the knee, to ensure that nothing interferes with an onlooker’s view to the shoe.
MANSUR GAVRIEL pink slip-ons: for those days when comfort is of the utmost priority, and added height is a close second.
Side Note: this shoe is produced in MANY different colors, so owning more than one pair is worth considering. Pick your pleasure.
TORY BURCH fringed black sandal: for that ‘bridge-gap’ or ‘transitional’ fashion situation, e.g. dressing something casual UP, or dressing something flashy DOWN.
Side Note: this shoe style works equally well in a country-western atmosphere … should the wind unexpectedly blow the wearer in that direction.
GUCCI turquoise chiseled-heeled Arielle dress shoe: suitable for a client meeting that involves walking all of six flights of stairs, or the catching of an airline flight that is located at the furthest possible terminal gate.
Side Note: floral ankle socks would make for a prissy accessory.
PROENZA SCHOULER striped-heel sexy evening shoe: for Date Night with a hottie that pays attention to details.
Side Note: a gal could wear a plastic-bag dress with these shoes and still make a favorable impression.
MUI MUI embellished-heel ankle strap sandal in the color ‘nude’: for any outing–morning, afternoon or evening– with a bunch of girlie-girl gal-pals.
Side Note: dark plum toenail polish is a ‘must’ with this one.
LOUIS VUITTON army boots: for knocking on the door of the apartment dweller one floor above, to mention that his bagpipe playing every night between 2:00 and 4:00 a.m. is making you CRAZY.
Side Note: for added effect, wear an outfit of camo.
