Statement Shoes

I used to be a Footwear Buyer and Designer when I first began my career in the Fashion Industry.  So I have always had a fondness for shoes.  In fact, often times when I put an outfit together, I plan it around a specific pair of shoes that I feel like wearing.  So when I saw these stunners in NYC a couple of weeks ago, I absolutely could not resist them.  Not only are they super fun (and totally on trend with the tassels and lace-up styling), but are really comfy to boot.  Not into the silver? Well don’t worry.  They also come in a few other colors, which I have linked below as well.DSC_7431 DSC_7434 DSC_7457 DSC_7452 DSC_7502 DSC_7474 DSC_7438 DSC_7464 DSC_7490DSC_7478 DSC_7496

Jacket: cabi (my favorite!!)

Dress: Shein c/o (runs a little small through the shoulders and hips-so size up if in between sizes! for reference, I’m wearing a small, but wishing I had the medium!)

Sunnies: Prada c/o Ditto

Clutch: Clare V. 

Heels: Sam Edelman (also come in pink, blue, turquoise, and nude, and neon orange)

Lips: Stila Stay All Day in Venezia

Happy Wednesday, my sweet friends!  Just a reminder (or in case you didn’t know), I was selected as a finalist to be on the cover of the September issue of Redbook Magazine (ahhhhh!!!)! But I need your vote! So if you wouldn’t mind, I would be so appreciative if you would CLICK HERE and vote for me!

Thank you!

Perfect Pumps

I often times have to spend long hours on my feet for my job, so I am always on the hunt for stylish and comfortable shoes.  But one thing I’ve struggled with is that fashionable and practical shoes are a very rare combination.  So when I found about a new brand that boasts BOTH, I was thrilled to give them a try.  And I have to tell you guys, not only are these shoes gorgeous and beautifully architectural, but they live up to their promise and are incredibly comfortable as well.  So if you are in the market for a pair of shoes that will stop people in the street and keep you feet happy all day long, than be sure to check out the full collection at Zvelle (sold exclusively online).  They offer free shipping and returns to the US and Canada too!

Statement Pumps

It’s no secret that I love shoes.  And there is almost nothing in the whole wide world of fashion that I love more than a great pair of statement pumps!  So when I spotted these gorgeous Vince Camuto stunners when I was in San Francisco for meetings last week, I knew they would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe!  Not only will they look fantastic with jeans, but I am especially loving the way they amp up a simple long sleeved black dress.  A perfect (and super easy!) look for date night if you ask me!

Pink and Blue

I love the combination of pink and blue together.  In fact, it’s one of my all time favorite color combinations.  And another current favorite?  These ah-mazing pink lace up heels

Stand Out

Every gal needs a statement pair (or two) of shoes in her closet. And if bags are your thing (like they happen to be mine), then a statement bag is a great investment piece as well. Because on those days when you don’t feel like putting much in effort, accessories are the best (not to mention easiest) way to dress up an otherwise simple outfit…

If you are shopping for your first pair of statement shoes, or looking to add another pair to your collection, I highly recommend a good leopard print shoe.  While they are still the perfect stand out piece in an outfit, leopard also works as a neutral and goes back to just about anything!
