Cell-Phone-and-Stiletto-Pairings-the-best-shoes-to-go-with-your-smart-phone

high-heels-phone

Obviously we try to match purses with shoes and belts with shoes but what about our cell phones? May be a dumb question and I’ll soon find out- but everyone knows that your shoes say a lot about who you are, what you’re up to, and where your going.  I’ve found that those assumptions we make about people’s shoes are just as easy to make by looking at the type of cell phone they carry. The inspiration for this post comes from that assumption and so I’ve taken some commonly used cell phones out there today and paired them with some of today’s must-have heels- matching in terms of look, functionality, purpose, and style.

Samsung Instinct® S30 - Copper (Sprint)Allan Heel - Gold

Samsung Instinct – (Sprint) Less of a smartphone, but looks snazzy, and is better for messaging and GPS nav than business emailing and things for the the corporate chick on the go. Thus, the “Allan Heel” by BCBG Girls pairs perfectly as it is more fashion than function, gets the message across, knows where it stands and is quite the knockoff (because come ‘on, this baby screams Iphone copycat and the shoe is a copy of one of Louboutin’s Spring ’09’s babies).  Nevertheless, its a hell-of-a-lot cheaper than an Iphone or a pair of Christian Louboutin’s but incomparable in functionality, apps (comfort), and style.  Phone aside, I’m into the shoes for sure.

593962 Black Nappa

BlackBerry Storm Smartphone (Verizon) paired with the Givency Black Nappa booties. Hot indeed and almost intimidating. A look that is very in style and can be paired with many of the season’s hottest apparel buys. Despite the fact that the 3G network for this phone isn’t as fast as it could or should be, it is still a pretty powerful piece of technology- if you can stand the tiny lag time.  (We’re so impatient these days!) Same goes for the shoes- with almost a 5″ heel- the shoes won’t get you anywhere that fast either but it doesn’t matter because sometimes you need to take your time to look this stylish as these two promising pieces provide.

Of course I could not forget the iPhone. For those of us that are super-extravagant, there is only one way to go here and that is the 3G iPhone Encrusted with Diamonds, obviously! This phone, diamond studded or not, pairs perfectly with just about anything but goes exceptionally well with these adorable “Tawny Heels” by L.A.M.B They are both pretty flashy, well made, very well designed, and very fun.

Samsung Juke in Red (Verizon Wireless)Brandy T-strap - Red


Samsung Juke in Red (Verizon Wireless)
pairs very well with the “Brandy T-strap” by Paris Hilton Both the Juke and the Paris Hilton shoe are trendy and fun, but neither one is smart or functional. Both are very skinny and can fit into a variety of places.  Samsung and Paris Hilton have both used their names to leverage some sub-par ventures and products (Paris as a singer/popstar, come on, please) and neither the Juke or these “Brandy T-Straps” would have gotten anywhere if it weren’t for their names. Other than the fact that they seem to look cool there really isn’t much else going for them as there is minimal value behind the flashy, thin, and trendy exteriors for either the Juke or Ms. Hilton (and her shoes). Nevertheless, I appreciate both for their aesthetic appeal and entertainment value, keep up the good work you two!

BlackBerry_Curve8900bGreta Pewter Leather

BlackBerry Curve 8900 Phone, Black (AT&T) is a perfect combination with this Stuart Weitzman Peep Toe Pump Both are sexy in their own right, surprisingly comfortable to navigate in and strike the perfect balance between work and play. I personally own a Curve and I absolutely love it. If I were to pick a designer symbolic of the Curve it would be between Weitzman and Choo because just like the Curve, both designers do a great job striking a balance being professional and playful.  I think I favorite this duo.

    What about vertu.com?

  • Kristen Stewart's Hair

    This is quite a strange posting. I can’t even remember how I was linked here. P.S., the Storm is a piece of trash and should be destroyed. Not only should it be destroyed, but someone should create a time machine just so that we can go back in time and kill the lead designer of the phone. Erase it from history altogether.

    Know what I’m sprayin’?

  • Kristen Stewart's Hair

    Hey, where did my comment go? DID YOU ERASE IT. HOW DARE YE! Don’t you know who I am?

  • tallshortgirl

    Thanks for the comments Kristen, no I didn’t erase it. In fact, I thought I approved it but I’m new to this wordpress/blogging thing so I guess I messed it up. Sorry about that!

  • The curve and the Stuart Weitzman Peep Toe Pump are a perfect combination, I may actually try this, but not with this particular shoe.
