shoes on the brain

As you can tell from my last post, I, as usual, have shoes on the brain. However, not just any shoes (and not shoes that all-too-closely resemble the, er, female anatomy) but shoes that can be worn when it's not pouring rain or a balmy zero degrees. Has anyone else started obsessively perusing the interweb for SS11 footwear (and apparel and accessories) or did my brief time in California get my warm weather cravings started way too early? Here are some beauties that are currently on my online wish lists and haunting my dreams:

L to R: Opening Ceremony, Boutique 9, Ash.

All Alexander Wang, of course.

L & R: Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent, Middle: Tory Burch.

On a side note, I've only featured three styles, but Alexander Wang's SS11 shoes are amazing. You would expect no less and you'll still be pleasantly surprised.

Now please excuse me while I begrudgingly go put on my Hunter boots. Again.

PS. Have you entered my latest giveaway? You can win 2 Essie nail polishes courtesy of Glowing Beauty. To enter, visit A Haute Mess on Facebook and tell me what your favourite Essie polish colours are on my wall. It's that simple! Good luck!


  1. My eyes are glued to all the Alexander Wangs. The furthest one to the left is my favourite. I don't expect anything less from him. The colour of the shoes are perfect for Spring. Must refrain from shopping...

  4. Gorgeous shoes, but whilst I'm looking forward to the Spring/Summer weather, I'm much more of an Autumn/Winter girl fashion wise, so I'm not wishing it away just yet xxx

  5. Yes I have shoes on the brain too, but particularly nude wedges and chunky heels. I want to wear the whole row of Alexander Wang's shoes. :)


  6. i'm so ready for open toe shoes!!!

  7. sweet pick of shoes. really loving the Ash ones. that type of wedge seems to be getting really popular.

    I just started a new blog, and I'm trying to get it off the ground. would love it if you checked it out! Thanks :)

  9. The new Alexander Wang footwear is beyond amazing, so glad you included this in the post! I know I've been having this weird footwear obsession lately, I feel like I spend half my days in shoe shops. It's weird lol.

  12. Is it bad that sometimes when I'm not listening it's because I have shoes on the brain? Great picks, I can't wait to ditch winter boots and get my feet into some new spring shoes :)

  13. =O Ash...I love those shoes. =)
    I've got the I want spring and summer blues too =/

    Much Love,



  14. I adore nude coloured shoes :D


  15. alexander wang has the best structure in their shoes.. darn. so perfect. would love to own a pair of wedges myself.

  16. Oh, I can't wait to wear sandals again... So looking forward to Spring! The A.Wang shoes are my favorites.

  17. Niki B.,

    I think we were separated at birth! You have some excellent picks here. The Ash, Alexander Wang, and Twelfth St. are all "wifey material." But that's not to downplay Open Ceremony, Boutique 9 or Tory Burch.

    I still have a "winter state of mind," but we'll see what happens after I come back from Vegas in a week or so.


  18. I must admit, I haven't really gotten into the SS11 mindset yet... but that's probably because I just moved from MB to BC and the idea of no snow in Feb is mind blowing! lol
    Your picks are awesome though and they've definitely started me thinking about it! xx

  19. the boutique 9 pair are to die for! love em

  20. Amazing and amazing! You have great taste in shoes. I can see how these have made it on your "wishlist" they are all beautiful. Can't wait to see a few pairs on your blog, so that I can have some "quality" shoe drool time. xx veronika

  21. I love all these shoes that you have posted here. Neutrals are so IN for Spring/Summer!
