Hi there-thanks so much for the shout out my dear, so lovely of you and what a fabulous post too! My faves are the Alexander McQueen booties, I'd adore something similiar if possible!!

Sher said...

I've been on the look out for an Oxford open toe bootie for fall. Problem is my size.I have peanut feet. But I'll keep searching.

I think I like the more open-toed ones. I think they're cute, though most guys I know think they're odd-looking. Female fashion is more for other girls than guys, anyway :) I love the red patent sandal!

janettaylor said...

Awesome post darling CC!
I need the cut out booties for the next season. :)

Hanako66 said...

as a general rule, I am not a huge fan, but you found some great ones!

What even more fabulous is the fact that this Fall I get to wear this booties in almost all jeweled tones. My heart belongs to Donna Karan emerald green booties. Thank you for the post and great pictures!

Bradford said...

You've educated me today, CC. I would never have been able to identify a Shootie before today.

Savvy Mode SG said...

great post. I tried to resist seasons ago and looked like they will stay for a while.

archivingfashion said...

Fabulous finds! These are so gorgeous...these boots always look amazing with a mini dress.

MissNeira said...

makes me want to buy more shoes! thanks cc! haha

love love love any booties/sandles with lace on them..yum

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I hated these at first...I guess I hated how they were worn. I love them now. I guess if you have the stems to pull them off, they work. The Alexander McQueen peep toes are amazing! I also love the L.A.M.B. Rangers, which are so adorable. I have been seeing the Givenchy platforms a lot lately on the feet of many stars.

Wanderlusting said...

My favourite trend by far. I hope it lasts forever because these are the only shoes I can wear and feel good in IE, my horrible scars on my ankles are covered up :(

Sadly, most of these gorgeous pics are too high for me, but I do love the Elizabeth and James Luella Gladiator booties - again, too high, but one can dream.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

i cannot pick a favorite for the life of me!

michellehendra said...

all the shoes are awesome! if only i were the richest girl in the world, i'll buy them all! :))

Those shoes are pretty awesome!

K8 said...

Great shoes, they are so awesome!

Jennifer said...

I am so out of the loop. Apparently I own a pair of shooties and didn't even realize it. Lol. I just called them boots. Oh dear.
The ones you posted are beautiful. It makes me want to dash out of work and immediately go shoe shopping at Nordstrom right now!

lisa said...

Oh wow, you've outdone yourself CC! I was not expecting this bonanza of shoe porn today. Now, excuse me while I wipe the drool off my keyboard. ;-)

Elizabeth Marie said...

CC this is fabulous...I can't even pick a favorite, I'll take them all! :)

XOXO

Make Do Style said...

All so desirable!! Agh the want barometer is too high.

Tracy-Girl said...

I love the dark sapphire blue shoes - they are amazing!!

Iva said...

they are all so stunning!Can I have one of each please? Ok. Great! Thank you :)

<3,

OceanDreams said...

Love it...now I REALLY can feel like it is ok to wear my low boots to work with a dress without feeling like a freak. My co-workers don't like this style, but I love it! It's a great way to use your boots during the summer and still get a little style going!

leeselooks said...

i usually like a full bootie! but some of these are delicious.

love your term" shooties"
you are sooo sweet.

Kristin said...

Can I tell you how jealous I am of your latest score? Gorgeous!!

Legallyblondemel said...

I have a love-hate relationship with these shooties - I tend to either find them hideous or covet them, depending on the pair. Those sheer Loub's (despite what you might think from my post today!) definitely fall in the "covet" category.

Lily G. said...

I totally love this trend. They are just such hot shoes!

Amanda Frechette said...

I absolutely agree. I love the "shooties". They scream fierceness and style. I'm obsessed you might say.

Susan said...

Sandra said...

Erika said...

I want the L.A.M.B. pair. Perhaps it's the ruffles, or the Mary-Jane like appeal. Ooh, I want some shooties! :)

kpeach said...

Love the shootie! I still want the Alexander Wang ones from last season, but fear they may shorten me too much!

Tamara said...

I can't stop starring at the Miu Miu gold shoes... thanks for introducing us!!! xoxo bycali

MISS GLITZY said...

Too many beauties in your selection, I totally love this trend!

ZombieLace said...

WOW these are badass!!! I love them all!!

That Girl said...

Am SO with you on the shoeboot thing! I have a beautiful suede fringed pair from Dune (so beautiful in fact that I took one of my blog pics of them and used it as my Twitter background). Apart from the lack of red soles they are a double take of the Louboutin version that I spied on a pic of Rhianna. My shoes rock! Loving this blog Lady!! x

HiFashion said...

I am definitely behind this trend. They always look so special.

Brunch at Saks said...

I'm so happy you did a post on these because I just love them! But I have to be honest (I am almost shamed to admit) that I have yet to wear/ purchase a pair! I've wanted to for so long but I just never know which ones to go for! I am going to look at all of your pics again and hopefully I will be on my way to a purchase! Ha!

Great post as always love :) XOXO

Some seriously stunning footwear! Loving those shoes from the Matthew Williamson resort look. And those Miu Miu suedes ones are gorgeous! Ooh and the Louboutin sheer lace shoes look so interesting. Yum and love the Topshop ones. Hope you're well dear :)

Brigadeiro said...

Ah! I have a pair of 'shooties' (haha, hadn't come across that term before), but find mine so hard to use/style :( I think you need the right legs for it, and I sadly, do not have them...

Pau said...

Once again, you do it.

Meg said...

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

Very stylish, I am sure great for a ladies night out!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oooh, so much eye candy! I prefer the more sandal-inspired versions like the Rupert Sanderson ones, though I love the skull element of the McQueen boot. So many gorgeous versions... I'm glad this trend isn't dying yet, considering I still have a pair I haven't worn yet. Great post as usual!

Wana said...

shoe booties are the hottest!!!

Claire said...

In general, not a fan of peeptoe shoe boots (I mean, whyyyyy? It's clearly for winter!!) - but some of these are covetable!

Tracey Ellle said...
