Best Boots for Bad Weather post image

Best Boots for Bad Weather


We’ve been pretty lucky this year when it comes to our winter, but there are still the occasional snow storms and I’m sure we’ve got plenty more on the way before those warm wonderful days of spring.  My biggest concern during the winter is finding great boots that will look fab while keeping my feet dry and warm.  Whether you walk to work, you brush off your car in the a.m., or you rarely step outside when the white stuff is on the ground, a great boot for any snowy occasion is necessary to any girl’s wardrobe.

Here are 10 (+ 1 just had to add!) styles to get you through the rest of winter. [continue reading…]

Celeb Style Inspiration: Emma Roberts post image

For a young starlet who has spent most of her career doing teeny-bopper movies and TV shows, Emma Roberts has shown a remarkable ability to transition her wardrobe from the “cutesy young teen” category to a sophisticated, yet youthful style.

Unlike the many child/teen stars before her, who have been hopelessly typecast and have rapidly descended into career hell (only to emerge on Nick at Night reruns, reunion shows, or mug shot halls of fame), Emma has successfully made the transition to bigger and better roles.  Fortunately for her – and us — her wardrobe has followed suit.  Whether on the red-carpet, at a party, shopping, or out with her current boyfriend, Glee star Chord Overstreet, Emma has demonstrated a keen ability to create a diverse array of looks that are jaw dropping from head-to-toe. In fact, other than her arm candy, I seem to find myself staring at her shoes more than any of the other fabulous pieces she is wearing.

Emma seems to enjoy switching up her style and trying different bold colors, patterns, and trends, selecting shoes that either compliment her outfit or act as the standouts. Blazing her own trail, Emma resists the temptation to wear of-the-moment styles, like those insane thigh-high black high-heeled patent boots made famous by her even more famous and fabulous aunt, Julia Roberts.  Even when Emma’s shoe choices are not intended to be the focal point of her outfit, it is hard not be in lust with her shoe choices.

Of her collection, sky-scraper pumps, wedges, flats, and boots seem to among her favorites, yet her varying use of these shoe closet staples is anything but boring. Varying heights, fabrics, colors, and small details make her shoe collection come alive and make me feel the need to stray from purchasing basic shoe closet staples (mostly in black) and begin having some fun with my shoe purchases!

Spring Ahead: Transitional Shoes post image

The countdown to spring has officially begun. When you can’t take another day of wearing thick socks and boots, go ahead…pull out your favorite warm weather shoes. Luckily, these days, practically every shoe is transitional with the help of hosiery. However, there are styles that are particularly agreeable for the in-between season.

A peep-toe bootie is the epitome of easy transitional footwear. A cross between a shoe and a boot, they can be worn with or without opaques in the cold weather. Its sister, the cutout bootie, is another chic and of-the-moment option. Spring will be all about the cage shoe so feel free to sport them a few months early. Wedges are also back in a big way. Embrace them while you can as they’re both stylish and comfy.

Come spring, shed the tights and let the shoes enjoy the weather. [continue reading…]

Trend To Try: Beyond Bright Shoes post image

These woeful economic times have ushered in a push towards the cheerful and exuberant in the fashion department. Bright shades were a big trend for summer and will be a HUGE one come fall. I am especially loving bold and bright shoes as a means for getting in on this trend. There really are no rules when it comes to rocking this look.

At this year’s Teen Choice Awards, bright pumps were the real stars electrifying the green carpet. Cameron Diaz gave her soft gray Alexander McQueen shift dress a jolt by teaming it with a pair of electric blue Pierre Hardy pumps. Leighton Meester took her flirty striped Louis Vuitton dress to the next level with a standout pair of red Brian Atwood pumps. Audrina Patridge wasn’t afraid to really push the envelope, pairing a magenta Zuhair Murad dress with piercing blue Courtney Crawford pumps.

At the CW Upfronts, Ashlee Simpson added an electric jolt to her white top and pencil skirt combo (both from DSquared2) with a killer pair of powerhouse pink Lanvin pumps. Fergie also used a pair of neon shoes to take her look from basic to wow-worthy, teaming a John Richmond Jersey dress with standout Jimmy Choo sandals at the March of Dimes 34th annual Beauty Ball.

Draw inspiration from any of these lovely ladies or rock the look on your own terms, either way, you’re sure to make an unforgettable entrance. To help you on your way, I’ve rounded up a selection of bright pumps that I am currently coveting.

Hottest Summer Sandals post image

Hottest Summer Sandals


Chic, comfortable, easy-to-wear sandals are absolute musts for summer and can be worn from day to night and take you from the beach to the bar.

Studded, fringed, beaded, braided, laced- there are so many amazing trends this season sure to match your favorite shorts, dress up your shortest miniskirt, and compliment your best maxi dress.

While embellished styles can be hard to turn away from, it’s important to be selective with whichever sandal you purchase and to make sure the style is as functional as it is fashionable. If you’re craving something on the statement-making side but don’t want to go too extreme, try styles accented with subtle fringe, small studs, downsized buckles, or a laced-up style (my personal favorite).

Read on for the 10 hotted summer sandal trends! [continue reading…]

Splurge-Worthy: Designer Shoes post image

Splurge-Worthy: Designer Shoes


With the onset of the current economy, it is more important than ever to be a smart shopper. And in my opinion, it doesn’t necessarily mean giving up on the luxuries you enjoy- especially SHOES! Instead, put more thought in to what you are handing over the credit card for rather than impulse shopping as so many of us are guilty of. Invest in one pair of killer shoes per season to infuse life to your recession wardrobe- they are the best way to update any look. This includes classic flats, sky-high platforms and ladylike heels.

One more important thing- to increase the lifespan of your shoes, make sure to keep them stored in a box when not in use and carry them in shoe bags rather than throwing them in your bag.

Get Constricted in Python post image

Get Constricted in Python


In this economic climate it’s hard to limit yourself to those special finds you know will last through fad and trend. One you can be sure not to pass up is python. The pattern or skins are statement makers all on their own. In any form- bag, shoe, jewelry, real or fake- this print is dramatic enough to give a little hiss to even your most pared down, jeans-and-tee outfits.

Python was a major trend on the spring runways- from stunning Dior halter tops and cutting edge Prada skirts to statement making python handbags at Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Matthew Willamson, and more!

Rock a pair of python pumps to give your look a sexy twist like Lindsay Lohan, pictured above wearing Louboutins; pair a python clutch with a retro style like Nicole Richie (wearing a dress by Issa London) for a modern edge , or go all out in a python frock like Sarah Jessica Parker, who rocked a style from L’Wren Scott. From the red carpet to real life, python pieces are always a definite do.

Top 5 Seasonal Splurges post image

Top 5 Seasonal Splurges


I, like many, am definitely feeling the economic pinch and have been forced to reassess the value of my purchases and discover the hidden virtues behind the concept of downsizing.

Now as an avid fashion fanatic who is constantly surrounded by amazing items and some of the best-dressed people ever, abstaining from the stores is downright TORTUROUS!

Every season I like to make a few key purchases, my anchor items if you will. In season’s past I was guilty of going beyond my rigid wishlist, but this time around I WILL show restraint by sticking to the items I know I need and forgoing the rest, because in truth, I have plenty of fabulous pieces to get me by and I know you do too. So after careful consideration, the following items are those I deemed worthy of the investment during this very woeful season.
