Haha! This time I was the one who got photographed. It was fun, but totally exhausting as I had to try on more than 50 pairs of gorgeous shoes.
This is just a teaser. Our office was invaded by shoes, you literally had to walk on your toes between all the beautiful pairs.
I can't wait for the cover! Can't tell you all about it, but you will love it, I promise!
Until then take a look at our last issue here. You can still buy it from the local press stores.
And here are some photos from the office. Don't you just wish you where there?
Walking in style is not that common for men in Bucharest.
But from time to time, you see someone that proves your wrong.

Anyway, because of this obsession of mine, you'll be seeing a lot of this type of heel from now on. I hope the next one will be in my feet!

I had had a long day and was without heels... (I didn't took this party too serious, I wasn't enthusiastic at all). I regretted that. I was so "petite" next to all the high heels.
Anyway, I bought for myself a beautiful white lace dress inspired from the D&G ss2011 collection. It fits me beautiful even though I hadn't had any time to try it on first because you had to wait more that a half an hour to get into a fitting room.
So today is the BIG day for all H&M lovers in Romania, since it's opening it's flagship store in Unirea Shopping Center. I'm glad the brand it's here. It's nice not to feel left out anymore.
These are the shoes I worn at the party. But really now, there's an explanation why I wasn't wearing any heels. I broke them while I was at the Mall, working my back off for an article I had to do for work. You can see it here. Because the theme was How to wear orange with red I was in the search for colored shoes, clothes and accessories.
I fell in love with these suede orange shoes from the moment I saw them. They are sooo comfortable and cute. I can wear them anywhere (even at the red carpet event for H&M) and I won't even feel I have any shoes on.

I really like this collection and I'm pretty sure Asos.com, TopShop, Zara and Mango like it too, I sure hope so.
My favorite are the Mary Janes and the wedges. But most of all I love the heel of the sandals. I'm in the search of such a heel. Can't find it anywhere. I saw something at Zara but the color of the sandals was awful... so what to do? what to do? I need my 15 strong thick heels for this summer!!!!

These heels are not the prettiest I have ever seen, but they are perfect to walk in all day long, even on a day when you take the subway. So if you have to run for it, run in these comfy heels.

I instantly thought of this...
Call me crazy but these Alexander McQueen sandals (for me!) look like a little straw cottage on a sunny beach. A cottage for the feet, that's a funny thought!
So let me dream, I'm right there in this boat. I've got my large summer straw hat on my nose and I'm sitting peacefully with my feet up.

What are they supposed to be?
Besides the bright colors (we understand the "Tahiti" in the name), what's going on with the shape? If you don't get it at a first look, pay more attention to the nude pair.
So are they meant to look more like espadrilles or ballet shoes? Because they remind me of both, in a bad bad way...
Is it because we are talking about Dior we should want to pay 1550 dollars on them? If you feel so, here's where you can find them.
This one pair, that is also a part of the Tahiti collection, I like. Orange is such on this season. It's all about the powerful colors. And most of all, I like that they don't hide what they really are: they are platform wedge sandals made of crimson rope laces and citrus-hued suede. They can be yours with 850 dollars, from here.

But I saw their replicas walking on the street and people are so free with what they wear these days here in Bucharest that they make me proud.
Anyway, the spring is finally here! And the ladies (the gentlemen also) are wearing some new shoes. So I can't wait to bring here for you the new season of shoes.
And if you have just bought yourself a new pair of shoes, don't be selfish!! Spread the love, send them to email@example.com and let them be admired!
Hope you will have a wonderful spring!
*Note: These shoes are from a show that my friend Lorand Coza put on stage with his troupe from Baia Mare.

So, instead of giving you flowers I thought I should give some shoe... vases.
These shoes were Scherer Gonzalez idea for his spring 2009 collection.
They are interesting to see but never to wear!

Some people keep it up front, on their coats or on their head. Some others, like sweet Madalina Dorobantu right here, keep "their" fur on their shoes, or as seen here, on their woodies.
What would your wear your fur clogs with?

So here is how I would pick:
Her design: An antique Welsh lace pump with Scottish seed pearls and pearl-inspired heel. "I wanted to create something special with an intrinsic emotional value; something old and at the same time mirroring Kate’s fresh modernity. ... I have aimed for a balance between history and femininity fitting the occasion; a kind of luxury recycling."
PS: Are there some feather - like details on this shoe or is it just my imagination?
His design: An ivory silk pump with organza lilies of the valley and sea pearls. "It represents springtime and everything fresh and new, which is what Kate Middleton is all about."
His design: A single-soled silk pump with jeweled straps and embroidered floral details. "Kate reminds me of a 2011 Audrey Hepburn. ... This elegant design is customized with embroidery and multishaped clear crystals, to create a waterfall of stones dancing down the foot. I can see Kate dancing all night in this ‘new tango’ heel."
4. René Caovilla
His design: A white satin sandal with marabou feathers and multicolor Swarovski crystal gems. "This shoe is fit for a princess because the sandal is elegant, sexy and precious, and it suggests a magical atmosphere."
His design: A black satin sandal with large sapphire centerpiece and surrounding diamonds, on a metal-tipped stiletto. "I wanted her shoes to match the classic and sophisticated elements of her ring, but with a younger, modern edge. Jewelry for the feet is my DNA, so designing for a princess comes very naturally."
I really doubt that a classical lady like her will choose black shoes for her wedding day. That's why my last pick are the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Which are your personal favorites and what do you think she'll end up wearing?

Here are my favorites of the night.
Even though we can't see Cate Banchett's shoes I couldn't leave this look out of my selection. The Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture gown is definitely my favorite and she wears it beautifully.
Natalie Portman is eight months pregnant and looks radiant. Of course she took home the Best Actress Academy Award! I mean, she was perfect in "Black Swan".
