A Little Bit of Vionnet and Katie All Night Long ...

I try not to do this a lot, but it seems that I've been posting about many collections as of lately. It's not that I don't obsess over new and intriguing collections (au contraire, rather) ... I simply don't want you all to get bored with repetition! Ah, well; I just cannot help myself. My two latest obsessions are the Vionnet collection, and Katie Gallagher's latest.


Katie Gallagher:

Fantastic silhouettes, no? In other news, I made a recent purchase: a pair of 6 inch Blake Scott nude pumps. They're gorgeous, but I haven't mustered up the courage to wear them to school yet, where I'm easily already five inches taller than the average sized girl in my grade. Oh, well; it's not like I haven't worn tall heels to school before!

By the way, I've gotten many questions asking the actual definitions of all this "shoe lingo" we have now-a-days. According to, here's a few of the most popular ones:

Boot - a shoe that covers the whole foot and the lower part of the leg.
Kitten heel - low heel that tapers sharply to narrow base.
Loafer - a low leather step-in shoe; the top resembles a moccasin but has a broad flat heel.
Mary Jane - varying styles, but known for a strap that crosses the middle top of the foot.
Moccasin - a slip-on shoe made from soft leather with stitches around the top at the front, originally worn by native Americans.
Monk - a closed shoe, most often men's, with a wide strap over the instep fastened with a buckle.
Mule - a shoe or slipper, with any size heel, covering only the front of the foot, leaving back open.
Oxford - A sturdy, low shoe that encloses the foot, and laces over the instep.
Pump - low-cut shoe that surrounds the foot, without fastenings. May have heel of any height.
Sandal - a shoe consisting of a sole fastened by straps to the foot.
Slingback - a shoe that has a strap that wraps around the heel.
Stiletto - very high heel, with long, slender shaft.
Wedge heel - heel that extends down and forward to meet the sole, filling the entire shank portion of the shoe with a flat tread surface. May be of any height.

If there are any others that I may have missed, let me know! Now, if one more person comes to me crying that they don't know the difference between pumps and kitten heels, I'll be fully justified to tell them off ... correct? Have a great week!
