COUTURE RECOMMENDS - ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

There are certain combinations that are simply perfection. A pencil skirt and a peep toe shoe, stovepipe jeans and needle heel booties, and a fabulous square toe pump with a vibrant colored sole. The fabulous Alexander McQueen knows the way to a woman’s heart is through her favorite color and definitely through her sole. Couture is loving these Alexander McQueen square toe pumps with fabric upper, hot pink sole and sky high heel. Perfect with a black sheath and hot pink skinny belt, with an exaggerated collar knee length dress, or with stovepipe jeans paired with a ruffle-front crisp white shirt.
