5 Reasons You Need A Pair Of Luxury Poop Emoji Loafers, Like, Now

Poop Emoji Loafers

Big news for fashionistas, emoji addicts, and, umm, poop enthusiasts? Designers Edie Parker and Del Toro have collaborated on a special collection of shoes and clutches emblazoned with popular emojis, including one pair of loafers that are aptly named “#theshit.” Yep, these Italian-made velvet loafers feature a smiling pile of poop on each foot, and retail for $340. Why would you ever spend that much money on a pair of shoes with poop on them? SO many reasons! For example: Keep reading »

Hi/Lo: Lace-Up Snakeskin Stilettos

Hi/Lo: Affordable Lace-up Snakeskin Sandals

Lace-up stilettos are a hot trend this spring. These Aquazzura sandals are a playful mix of snakeskin, cut outs, and lace-up details — at a decidedly not fuckin’ around price. Luckily we found an affordable version of this sexy trend by Report for 70 percent less at DSW. Holla!

Hi/Lo: Black & White Mules

Hi/Lo: Black and White Mules

If you are flirting with the idea of mules this spring, consider a black and white, color-blocked pair as a great way to modernize this ’90s trend. These Fendi patent leather mules are exquisite and the color and texture contrasts create a clean, mod-meets-futuristic look. Unfortunately, I am unwilling to spend $850 on any shoe, let alone something that may be a passing trend! I think I’ll try Charles David’s version for $79.95 at DSW instead.

I love how pretty patterned pumps can brighten up an entire outfit. The unexpected burst of color screams “Spring is here!” Though many of the prettiest patterns come with the highest price tags, you can achieve the same effect for a sixth of the price. Try these Guess pumps for $90 at Macy’s.

Must Haves: 10 Stylish Pairs Of Peep-Toe, Ankle-Strap Mules

I’ll be perfectly honest, I’m not sure what the difference is between a shootie and a mule, if there even is one. (I’m also not sure how anyone keeps a straight face while saying the word “shootie,” because I just chuckled to myself typing it. What a ridiculous hybrid fashion term.) All I know is that this style of shoe, which covers most of the foot, save the toes popping through in the front and the exposed heel in the back, is huge for spring.

Now, mules, more often than not, are backless, offer zero ankle support and are responsible for some of the worst falls I’ve ever taken. That’s why all these mules have some sort of ankle strap or slingback — I care about you, dammit. Click through for 10 pairs to stay upright in…

You Can Have Carrie Bradshaw’s Shoes! (Sort Of)

You Can Have Carrie Bradshaw's Shoes! (Sort Of)

Let’s be real: the only way you could afford even one pair of Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes is if you skipped out on rent for the month. But what if I told you that you could own a bunch of Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes at once? It’s possible through the magic of art! This 18″ x 24″ print by PopChartLab features dozens of Carrie’s beloved heels from Christian Louboutin, Dior, Manolo Blahnik, even J.Crew. Plus, it’s made on recycled paper in Brooklyn (a place I’m not sure Carrie set foot in, even when when her best friend Miranda moved there). It’s the perfect print to hang while you try and manifest your dream closet. A girl can dream, can’t she? [PopChartLab]

Do Not Want: Hideous & Expensive Teva-Esque Sandals Are In For Spring

When I look out the window right now, I see snow blanketing New York City, further sign that Punxsutawney Phil wasn’t joking when he saw his shadow and predicted four more months of winter. And while I am longing for the warmer temperatures of spring, one thing is giving me pause. The fact that, according to every fashion magazine I’ve picked up in the last month, hideous, chunky, clunky, sporty sandals, seemingly inspired by what I consider to be the ugliest footwear ever imagined, Tevas (yes, more so than Birkenstocks OR Uggs!), are apparently all the rage for spring. Seriously, there’s a whole spread of them in the new issue of LuckyAnd all of these shoes above, currently available at your favorite stupidly pricey e-boutique, are priced at $500-$800. I SWEAR. All together now … DO! NOT! WANT!

Must Haves: 10 Pairs Of Pretty D’Orsay Flats

I have a closet full of heels and wedges, a couple pairs of workout and “fashion” sneakers, boots for the colder months, and I blow through at least three pairs of J. Crew Capri flip-flops each summer. But there’s long been a gaping hole in my wardrobe when it comes to work-appropriate flats. I recently bought a super cute pair of pointy-toed black D’Orsay flats on Gilt and it’s been sort of a revelation. Because on days where I have a really cute blouse on, but don’t want to clomp around in three-inch heels, I can put these babies on and still feel just as put together and feminine. So what’s the deal with the pretentious “d’Orsay” bit? According to About.com, “d’Orsay” refers to when the sides of the shoe are cut away, revealing the arch of the foot. The arch, you see, is the new toe cleavage. Personally, I love a pair of d’Orsay flats that also reveal toe cleave, but my feet are very slutty. Click through for 10 cute pairs of d’Orsay flats that will titillate every shoe fetishist in spitting distance. (Which may not be a good thing, but whatever.)

I Can’t Wear That (Or Can I?): Stylish Sneakers

How To Wear Stylish Sneakers

Here at The Frisky, we hate the phrase “I can’t wear that,” because honestly, no matter the trend or your body type, there’s always a way to make a style work for you. In our new feature “I Can’t Wear That (Or Can I?),” we’ll talk about subtle tweaks and tips that make any trend — from crop trops to neon orange — accessible to all. Yes, really! First up, stylish sneakers for non-models:

I really, really love the sneakers-with-stylish-outfits trend, but as a short, curvy lady, I’m worried that on me it will look more “frumpy soccer mom” than “cool, off-duty model.” Is there a way for me to rock my bright sneakers without making people wonder if I just forgot to pack my regular flats in my gym bag? Can I really pull this off?

Girl, you totally can. While model types might be able to throw on sneaks, sweats, and sunglasses, and get photographed by The Sartorialist, we non-models just have to work a bit harder to ensure our sneakers look purposeful instead of lazy. Here are a few guidelines: Keep reading »
