Hot Trend Alert: Python Shoes and More…

Are you ready for Xmas??? Do you  have all your gifts done? Have you got outfits for the one million and ninety parties you have to attend? While you’re at it, do not forget the shoes. I always advise my male friends on how to choose a good woman. The measuring stick is the shoes… If she’s wearing those luminous coloured patent leather pumps, please run in the completely opposite direction! I’m going to drop some knowledge on you for tips to follow when buying your shoes this season.

You may not believe it but python is making a big comeback this season. Like I told you with the leopard print shoes, python skin is not to be overdone. Try and tone down the rest of the outfit. I absolutely love the shoes pictured above which were worn by Ashanti to the premiere of The Tourist. She made a very big mistake when it came to the rest of her ensemble.

She walked the black carpet in a fur bolero, paired with a leather jacket, and the killer python peep toe heels. What is up with that bolero??? Too much animal going on here. One has to go… As you can see, it’s very easy to mess up the python look. Please be careful when you are wearing a really loud python piece. You have to do the piece justice so you can easily mess it up like Keyshia Cole. She dressed down so the shoes kinda lost their glamour:

Keyshia Cole wore Christian Louboutin Pigalle Python Boots to her album release party in Atlanta. They are priced at a whooping $5,495 bucks. Her white ensemble was just too casual for the shoes and ended up looking kinda weird. Hot boots though!

So ladies, don’t ruin stunning shoes by dressing down. If you’re going to bring it then bring it damn it!!!

Knee high open toe boots are also the rage right now:

Now that is a shoe!!! The $1,095 leather open toe zip-up knee boots by Alexander Wang have a folded ankle, laced detail, and zipper trim. Both Ciara and Nicki Minaj  have been spotted in these beauties:

We’re not here to discuss their outfits so yeah… There is also an ankle version of the Freja Boot that was spotted on Kim Kardashian and Rihanna:

Yves Saint Laurent’s statement making Mohawk Suede Pumps from their Fall 2010 Collection are very creative and I just love them! The suede pumps are trimmed with goat hair and feature a 6 inch heel and one inch platform. So far we’ve only seen them worn by Teyana Taylor. I love the fact that she’s so daring with her fashion sense:

Then there are the Versace Metal Heel Ankle boots. The heel on the shoe measures about 6.5 inches with a 2.5 inch platform. Both Nicki Minaj and Janet Jackson have been seen rocking them:

I hope I’ve given you inspiration for the festive season. Get your pedicure done and glam up your feet. And don’t think you can’t get hot shoes in Nairobi. Just walk downtown and shoe fanatics like me may go crazy. My latest find are these beauties:

Merry Christmas xoxo
