Since starting my website, This Island Life, I’ve been guilty of a few things. But we’re not here to talk about my need to purchase everything I write about. We’re here because I’ve been neglecting the fashionable men in my life. What can I say? I was blinded by bikinis and balayage – things that (bless your hearts) you guys read and even commented on. But I’m not here to make excuses; I’m here to apologise. And what better way than with a pair of summer huaraches from my current favourite shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell.
Yesterday I didn’t even know these shoes existed. Today, they’re all I can think about. Perforated suede, luxe animal prints, a chunky four-inch wedge and a summery peep toe front: it’s like Jeffrey Campbell invaded my shoe dreams and brought them to life. Had I not made a rookie error, I would have saved myself a chunk of cash and a hell of a lot of time.

Flaunting a pair of Meow Floral Lace-up Flats around town is one of the brightest ways to celebrate spring in the Southern Hemisphere. Designed by Jeffrey Campbell, these jazz style babies offer an all over antiqued floral print shoe in luxurious supple leather.
For the girls who love to play dress up and have the deep pockets to do so, this Irregular Choice Blue Suede Shoe is just the thing. For a cool $250, you can have your toys and wear them, too! The detachable trinkets can multitask on a boring handbag handle or as a keychain to […]
And I thought Croc clogs were wrong. Artist Kenny Kirschner created these Nipple Clogs as a cheeky way for woman to show off her assets. You’ll stop traffic and likely end up with an indecent exposure ticket when showing off these shoes. For the alternative girl, the shoe sports a silver ring through the nipple. […]
With the kickoff to the 2010 FIFA World Cup fast approaching, I’m prepared to go all out and support my team with the world’s most expensive soccer cleat. Designed by former fashion model and dancer, Luisa Di Marco, this collection of three luxury trainers sports a staggering 7,444 precious stones, valued at some $628,000. Gooooaaaaaalllll!
