Spiked motion

I've noticed lately that spikes seem to be huge this spring, particularly on shoes. And well, I almost can't help myself. I really want a pair of something awesome. So I've rounded up a few pairs that I'm lusting after. Help me pick a winner!

 I tried this pair on this weekend and these are my front runners. The Sam Edelman Beatrix flats come in an array of colors and I know will give my outfit the bit of badassness it needs. But.. the only thing that's holding me back is the price point. Perhaps I just have to bite the bullet on this one and just do it. Available at Nordstrom, 129.95.

I also spied this pair while out shopping but I'm a little undecided on it. I can't tell if I love it or hate it. These from Steve Madden are in a similar price range to the Sam Edelman pair but I'm not too sure how keen I am n the heel and the masculine shape of the shoe. Regardless, they are pretty punk and awesome. And they also come in leopard print, too! Steve Madden Melter shoes, 139.95.

Okay okay. I know, I'm a geek. But I LOVE these. How cute are they? A new updated twist on MBMJ's mouse flat... spikes! And studs! This little guy is hardcore. I know that I've seen these in black and also cream. In case you really want to take a walk on the wild side... I adore these too. Marc by Marc Jacobs studed mouse flat, 250.00.
From Neiman Marcus
And of course, the granddaddy of them all. Christian Louboutin knows how to make a girl drool over some shoes. I don't think I can put into words just how awesome these are. Loafers. A crest. Spikes. A bit of patent. Now if only I had won the megamillions lottery..... Christian Louboutin Intern spiked toe crest velvet loafter, 925.00.

Whew! Well now... I guess the hard part is deciding which pair to get...although I have a hunch what they may be.

And so this isn't entirely about shoes, here's yesterday's outfit from the Banana Republic fitting room. Skirt and blouse, Banana Republic. Shoes: Jcrew. Cardigan: Gap. Vintage Scarf: Ferragamo via ebay. Wrinkles: Sitting at your desk for 9 hours straight.

Have a good Tuesday!
