Hello Darlings, It is not everyday that a new designer makes an impression on the fashion world, but the newest addition to shoe trends is Sophia Webster. As I was browsing the shoe department of Saks Fifth Avenue while on my last trip to Las Vegas, her vibrant shoe collection stole my heart. She sure knew how to steal the spotlight!
Despite not finding a single pair in my size, last week I had the pleasure of adding one of her designs to my shoe closet. I decided on a simple pair of black Leandra pumps. Despite being a classic black pump the lapel with studs were the perfect addition. For some reason the lapels reminded of the sweet peter pan collar of blouse and how can you ever say no to those?
Upon greeting my favorite UPS guy, I was too eager to catch a glimpse into that perfect pink little box with the bow – yes, the shoe box is as charming as her designs! The pumps are beautiful, not only in their design elements but also comfort and craftsmanship. Plus, any designer that pumps a fun touch on their sole steals my heart. Like Louboutin and red soles, like Miu Miu and some of their glitter soles, Webster adds a sweet little heart.
Who is Sophia Webster? Well, she started her career as a design assistant to Nicholas Kirkwood. Kirkwood then helped her launched her first collection in 2012, titiled Welcome to the Dollhouse. Webster’s designs quickly became recognized for their vibrant colors and feminine designs. She definitely added a fun touch into a step! Next on my list are the summer casual Lucita sandals.
