Some lolita shoe inspiration from Montréal lolita fannyrosie.
Top 10 (in no special order) footwear as requested here.
1- John Fluevog Baby Cake boots: I own a pair of these and they are wonderful. Not only are they very sturdy, but also super stylish, comfortable, well made, non skid (a must in Quebec winter) and survived at least one winter (I wear them everyday from October/November to April).
2-John Fluevog Caravaggio shoes: I own these too, and they are true to Fluevog quality and style.
3 and 4- Anna Sui 2012 shoes (I have no idea what they are called, but they were featured in the September edition of Sweet magazine. They are also offered in black, but I like these colours.)
5- Cobb Hill Sally shoes by New Balance- As someone who walks A LOT, I need comfortable shoes, and these are exactly the way I like them: classic, super comfy with a medium heel. I also wear a similar pair of Clarks shoes, but this Cobb Hill pair is a bit more stylish and comfy.
6- Jeffrey Campbell Carmillia boots- Gorgeous, but since I do not own them, I do not know if they are comfortable.
7- Axes Femme Rose button boots (not sure of the name as they are not on the website anymore)- These are super cute and are offered in navy!
8- Axes Femme Chandelier shoes - My favourite colour is red, but it is sold out. :(
9- American Duchess Kensington shoes - I have been eyeing these for a while now, but since comfort is a real issue for me, I am still unsure.
10- Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa Lady Dragon shoes - The little feather detail and general appearance is gorgeous (and I feel really badass when I wear them), but they get so uncomfortable after a short while that I do not wear them much. :|

Some very nice shoes in this collection — I’m a particular fan of the wedges and the snake texture oxfords. Don’t miss your chance to win any pair of these you want!
Thursday, my friends zeech103 and nayzemonstar (both incredible artists, go check them out!) and I went to the Hush Puppies store to take pictures of the Spring Anna Sui for Hush Puppies collection for you! Indeed, today is the last day for two of you to win a free pair of any shoes from this collection! So have a look and make sure of having your choice ready ;) As for the sizing, please be aware that the collection tend to run a bit large.
