Patent-A-Thon: Shoes

Patent leather has officially become one of the latest fashion feeding frenzies. What's fabulous about this material is it is very resistant, timeless and sexy - what more could you ask for? As well, patent is no longer reserved for dressing up or accessories only; the new versions of it can be worn day or night, work or play, yay! Because patent is a plenty, and in such fantastic colors, I thought a week long Patent-A-Thon should provide a good fix. The first installment will be patent shoes to get this patent party started right.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Shoes Violet Round Toe Patent Leather Pump, $325.

A few more,

Tufi Duek tan patent leather t-strap sandals, on sale for $139.99 (originally $312).

DOLCE VITA Marine scooped Mary Jane skimmer, $97.

D&G Dolce & Gabbana Patent Leather Peep-Toe Pump, $395.

The marcs are adorable! Problem with buying cheap patent - it gets scratched easily. So the real thing's so worth it!

I saw the Marc Jacobs shoes in person on Sunday whilst at the MJ store in San Francisco. They are insanely gorgeous and I might have to go try them on. It was a total shoegasm.
