So Adele swept the 2012 Grammys – anyone surprised?  Her sultry voice and style to match make the singer irresistible to both our eyes and our ears.  The singer looked every bit the Vogue cover girl that she is, channeling the best of the 60′s with her red lips and cat eyes.  Elegance became her as she donned a shimmering Giorgio Armani gown and Louboutin heels to match.  Think Marilyn Monroe meets Dorothy in the Emerald City.  We think her sparkle-tastic shoes were a total hit.

Since we can’t run out and snag a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, here are a few affordable options we have in our line-up. Hopefully they’ll have you clicking your heels together three times and saying, “There’s no place like Shoe Metro, there’s no place like Shoe Metro, there’s no place like Shoe Metro.”

Weird Shoe Wednesday: Measuring Tape Sandals

Are you constantly worried about your feet growing to humongous size? Here’s a solution: wrap them in measuring tape so you can check up on them on the fly!

Strangely, these sandals from Christian Louboutin are called “Police” when they clearly have nothing to do with law enforcement and everything to do with sewing. The patent leather straps are printed to look like measuring tape and then connected to a stiletto heel. It’s got this whole Andy Warhol/Marilyn Monroe-ish vibe to it, very pop-arty.

What do you think? Do these measure up to your standards of chic?

Trend of the moment…. Glitter!

Hi! I’m Danielle, the buyer at Shoe Metro.

I have a deep love for fashion, interior design, and anything creative. When asked, I jumped at the opportunity to blog about fashion because it will give me a way to document all of my current fashion obsessions, inspirations, and ideas.

Fall’s latest footwear features glitz and glamour ranging from pumps covered in sequins to glitter saturated sandals. Perfect timing with the holidays right around the corner. Although the glitter trend seems to be more evening appropriate it can be dressed down as well.

Here are a couple of my favorites…

Miu Miu Glitter Peep Toe Pumps

Christian Louboutin Glitter Oxfords

Looking for some sparkly shoes for the holidays and the $700 price tag is a little too steep for you?

Check out the Steve Madden Haylow

I absolutely love these shoes! These would be perfect for a holiday party with a classic little black dress!

Sex and the City II Trailer + Shoes

A trailer and some pics for the Sex and the City II movie were released recently and, more importantly, kim of Shoeaholics Anonymous got a pretty good read of some of the shoes Carrie sports at various points in the movie.

According to kim:

  1. I’m pretty sure these are Christian Louboutin Leopard Pumps. I can’t tell if hers are peep-toe or not, so they could also be Christian Louboutin Pigalle Pony Fur Pumps. But I think they definitely have the signature CL red sole.
  2. These look similar to Christian Louboutin Cap-Toe T-Strap d’Orsay pumps, but the reference sites I found all seem to be replica CL’s. My guess is that at least one of her pairs of shoes will have been designed especially for the movie and will not be made available to the public until after the movie is a hit. They may even be Chanel, as Chanel is highly known for cap-toes.
  3. These are definitely Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers.

Kudos to kim for having such a great eye. Trailer after the jump, because I know everyone’s giddy with excitement!
