1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Thanks guys! Yes, I thought that adding a burnished toe and back quarters would improve the otherwise rather flat Vass color finish. Its not museum calf, I know, but I still think it holds its own. [​IMG]

    Hmmm, for me that's too much burnishing. I prefer it more subtle and with more gradiation from the finish to the burnish. But I think I'm an outlier in this case - and if you're in love then that's what makes the world go 'round - enjoy!

    I see what you mean, and I totally agree. Abrupt and excessive burnishing is rather vulgar IMHO. However, I think the white balance and exposure is a bit off in just that photo. The others are more true when it comes to the burnishing gradient.

    I'm thinking maybe cherry red budapesters with a 360 degree gold goyser welt edge stitching. When your ordering bright red shoes might as well go all the way crazy.

    A little bright for me. But choice is good, and for those that want a bold pair of shoes, rock on.

    I suppose if you choose a red shoe it doesn't matter what colour the edge trim is.
