SpotlightOn - MONIKA CHIANG

I first learned about Monika Chiang when I spotted her 'to die for' Mirrored Metallic D'Orsay Pumps on Intermix online. I did not know anything about her, but, the price was right and the look was lust-worthy. So, I purchased the silver stilettos, and, now, I cannot stop raving about them and the countless compliments I receive each time I wear them simply feed into my love.
In a market which is difficult to break into (we gravitate towards established houses aka Loubutin, Blahnik and Choo), it is important to recognize and support promising talent! (Plus, she is super sweet & responds to tweets!) I loved this discovery so much that I named these shoes in my Top 2012 Post. And, I am not alone! Celebs like Ashley Benson, Ashley Madekwe, Jaime Chung, Karolina Kurkova (around town and on Oxygen's The Face), Kourtney Kardashian, & the imitable Oliva Palermo have been spotted in her shoes (click on names to view them in the lovely pieces)!




Why I love of these shoes:
1. The Heel: I mean the stunning metal of the Stiletto heel and the cut and contrast of the Zimba heel are insanely gorgeous.
2. The Single Sole: Though I still am a fan of my many moderate platform shoes there has been a definite shift in the fashion set favoring non-platform shoes and these are flawless in execution.
3. The Finish: Whether its the exquisite mirrored finish, the perfect blue shade or the shimmery white reptile finish on the different D'Orsay styles they represent perfection.


So my tip is join the crowd! This time I condone doing it just cause everyone else is!

Shop the syles at Monika Chiang (she offers 15% off to new customers) or Singer22.
