15 Shoes to Own Before 30

Monday, June 10, 2013

Sorry for the poor picture quality, but I compiled this on the Polyvore mobile app from my iPhone. Some of these shoes are classics and some of them are on trend, so I don't expect myself to have the same taste 10 years down the road as I do now. There were just way too many amazing shoes to choose from, but I've decided to limit myself to just one pair from each designer house. Without further ado, allow me to present you with my carefully curated top 15 designer shoes I'd like to own by the time I turn 30. 

From top down, left to right, here goes (all prices in AUD)

1. GUCCI Victoire White Patent Buckle Sandal, $695 via Gucci

2. CHANEL White Espadrilles, prices vary depending on material (canvas $390, mesh $460 or leather $590), available at Chanel boutiques
Note: I'd recommend going a size up because they run small! 

3. BALENCIAGA Buckle Ankle Boots

4. GIUSEPPE ZANNOTI  Metal Embellished Suede Wedge Sandals, $2,118 via Net A Porter 
Note: if you're looking at the white one in collaboration with Kanye West it's called "Cruel Summer"

5. GIVENCHY ankle strap sandal, $1,020 via Far Fetch

6. CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Pigalle, $655 via Christian Louboutin

7. VALENTINO Noir Rockstud Sling Back, $1,045 via Bergdorf Goodman

8. CHLOE Susanna Studded Leather Ankle, $1,300 via Net A Porter

9. BALMAIN 110mm Guipure Lace Open Toe Boots via Star Style

10. DANNIKA ZEN Boulevard Wedges (White Leather), $335 via Dannika Zen

11. SAINT LAURENT Jane Sandal in Black Leather, $835 via YSL

12. ALEXANDER WANG Aline T-Strap Sandals, $565 via ShopBop

13. LOUIS VUITTON Magic Square Pump in glazed calf, $1,010 via Louis Vuitton
Note: These are seasonal, from the LV SS13 show collection

14. SENSO Qimat boots in Black, $275 via Zara Bryson

15. ISABEL MARANT Bekket Sneakers in Black 

I think to start ticking off the list, I might get the Chanel Espadrilles after exams! I'm off to Malaysia in July, so I might just get them before I leave to benefit from tax return :) It'll be such a perfect pair of holiday shoes to live in South East Asia's humidity. Fingers crossed they'll have my size! Otherwise, hopefully I'll be able to find them in either Malaysia or Singapore.

And then hopefully later this year, I can get my hands on a pair of those LV babies (just because they're seasonal, unlike the other shoes on my list, so if I want them, I'd have to get them soon!). And when I do, it'll officially be my first non-black heels I own. Eeeek can't wait! 

How many shoes have you ticked off from this list? Which ones are your absolute favourite?

Should I do a bag list too?! Comment and let me know what you think! :)
