If you’ve been following my Twitter, you would have seen that the other day, I tweeted “I can’t wait for the day when I can walk into Steve Madden and pick out whatever I want without looking at the price tag”. And this was for good reason — Steve Madden was the first high-end heel I owned and something I still keep in its box since I’ve only ever had the courage to wear it once. I’m still waiting for the right occasion to flaunt my most prized possession. I walked past the store the other day and died when I saw some of the shoes. One day, Deeanne. One day.
I’ve decided to dip back into Classy Couture and show you my Steve Madden favourites.
I love the Stelah shoe because it’s suede and has the cute fur rim at the top of the shoe. I love how sleek the design is and I feel that it would make your foot look so gorgeous and classy. Definitely one I would add to the collection and wear out to an event or lunch with the girls. Dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans and a figure hugging top or dressed up in a short dress or maxi with a slit.
I do not have the words to describe how badly I need these babies. I feel that this is so versatile as it can be used as a statement piece for a casual outfit (come on, these heels are killer!) or you could wear this with a plain formal piece to really add the flare to the look. I love these in black because I feel they would go with almost anything and I’m drawn to darker colours.
I call this one my graduation shoe. Whenever my university campus has a graduation ceremony, I almost always am drawn to the shoe chosen for the occasion. I actually saw this last year at the V&A Waterfront in the Edgars clothing store and man did I fall in love. Unfortunately these were not on sale so as a result I had to put these babies back. I would love a pair like these for graduation because I feel like it says “I have made it” in terms of fashion choice. I love how the straps look on the foot and almost slims it in a way. So if ever Steve Madden decided to gift me a shoe, my graduation is next year (wink, wink).
I’m not to sure if this particular shoe has been removed from the collection, as I could not find this one on the website. While browsing the other day, I happened to come across a similar pair, except the heel was a bit higher and it had statement diamonds along the toe strap. I could not find that one on the website either, but I love how classy this one looks. I could honestly see myself getting married in a shoe like this as it provides comfort in the length of the heel and with a perfect pedicure, these babies would make for some gorgeous photos. Unfortunately I do not see myself heading down the isle any time soon so these are not a priority but definitely on my wish list.
Obviously I kept the best for last, because it was the first Steve Madden shoe I’ve ever owned! I actually have this in black, but I feel that both nude and black look absolutely stunning. I actually got mine on sale at a steal of R599, when it retails for R999 usually. It’s very comfortable and give me the illusion of longer legs (I’m 5’4).
What are some of your favourite shoes?
