Word on the streets (aka the runways) is that we’re looking at a Wild West inspired wardrobe. That’s right. Saddle up ‘cuz you’re in for a rustic ride…and we’re not talking about a trip to your local antique mall.

Prairie dresses with a modern twist, country prints, denim and distressed leather are what define this look. If you take care of things from the knees up, we’ll handle the rest…here are some of our fave Western looks that’ll take you from Spring on the prairie to Fall on the range. Well…maybe just from work to happy hour, but you get the point.

Would You Ever….

…buy shoes designed by Kanye West?

He raps, he manages record labels, he steals the spotlight from sweet country bumpkins giving awards speeches, and he…designs shoes?

That’s right, folks. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. Kanye West teamed up with shoemaker Giuseppe Zanotti to create two pairs of women’s shoes that most of us would have to take out a loan to own.

These stiletto sandals, crafted from calf leather (calling all PETA members!), are embroidered with enough pearls to make an oyster cry. Price tag: $4,968.07 (plus shipping + handling from Paris, of course).

The more affordable (ha!) option are these strappy stiletto sandals in black. Also made from calf leather, but sans the ocean accoutrements, you can add these kicks to your collection for a mere $792.

So, let’s say you were just handed a check for $5,000. Which pair would you spring for?

After The Oscars | Fashion Feats And Fashion Flops

The stars hit the red carpet on Sunday with uber class, and a little sass. Or maybe, uber sass and a little class. Either way, with bling shining, hair flowing and faces glowing, the stars flaunted their best (and worst) ensembles for the commoners (aka you and me) to oogle over. And yes, we’re judging them. So while you’re crammed in coach, cruisin’ in your sub-compact import, or chillin’ in your postage stamp-sized apartment, take comfort knowing that we can openly turn our noses up at celeb fashion flops.

We’re head over heels for this glittery number! We all know glitter is where it’s at right now, so jump on the bandwagon and shine it up! We’d pair this enviable ensemble with these hot heels.

Golly, we love Emma Stone – what’s not to adore? We just can’t help but wonder which mirror told her this would be it – this would be the dress she takes to the Academy Awards. She’s yelling at us through her wardrobe. Whispers, Emma. It’s whispers that get the most attention. Anyway, if the dress doesn’t do it for you, these shoes certainly will! We’d pair this fuchsia number with these classy pumps.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this one has a lot to say. But we have questions for you, photograph. 1) Is Anna Faris drunk, or does she have a peg leg and we just didn’t know it? 2) Why did she dip herself in latex before she went to the Oscars? Rhetorical questions, of course, we love this funny front woman when she’s at her best. This just isn’t one of those times.

Oscar-Worthy Styles | Flashy, Or Less Is More?

Hello again, Oscar! The Academy Awards are this Sunday, February 26,  and we know we’ll see a lot of new styles, new twists on old styles, and everything in between.  We can’t wait to see what some of our fave stars and starlets stir up!

While Hollywood is busy prepping, primping, and perming (well, maybe not that), we took some time to pick out a few Oscar-worthy styles that are prime head-turning, envy inspiring footwear fashions.

Turns out all that glitters is not gold (sorry to disappoint), but with all the attention sparkle-laden fashions are getting these days, these shoes may as well be as good as gold!
Animal print or bust!  Let’s Face it – animal print never gets old.  Unless, of course, you’re Nicki Minaj.  Toned down and paired with an equally awesome ensemble you can’t go wrong.

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.”

Enjoy!

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: 8-Bit Pixel Heels

Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. Once again, very exciting things are going on at Shoe Metro and some even more exciting things are just on the horizon as well. If only I could divulge more ……

But we’re back with Weird Shoe Wednesdays. And this week, we have some delightfully retro, 8-bit Nintendo-inspired pumps. Designer Kunihiko Morinaga created the entire Fall 2011 clothing collection for Anrealage. Morinaga takes inspiration from the digital pixel. The heels came out just stunningly beautiful.

You can see the rest of Anrealage’s 2011 collection at Design Milk. What do you think of these pixel shoes? So hot? Or just too geeky?

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Brass Knuckle Heels

Wow. There are a lot of brass knuckle heels. I mean if you really want to wear brass knuckles on your footwear, there are no shortage of options available to you. It kinda boggles my mind how many different shapes that brass knuckle pumps come in. I’ve already seen a pair of brass knuckles booties in the past. Little did I know there were brass knuckle mary jane pumps, brass knuckle platform sandals, brass knuckle high-heel slides, and more. Oh heavens …

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: LEG-GO Stilettos

Like the perfect marriage of boys being boys and girls wanting to be women, artist/sculptor Finn Stone has created these LEG-GO Stiletto heels for the Spring 2011 season. As you can see, the upper is made of Lego blocks but thankfully the insole and outsole are not (just imagine the ouchies if they were). Stone plans to make only a dozen pairs of these. You can snag one for yourself (or one of your children, hah) by contacting Stone directly from his website.
