Clog Culture

I get a ton (I mean a TON) of emails everyday from different mailing lists--mostly about fashion, makeup, accessories, handbags--from designers all over the globe. It's super girly fun to get up in the morning and look over my pretty emails + a good cup o' coffee. Today, I opened up a Daily Finds email from REALSIMPLE mag, titled '10 Classy Clogs' by writer Elinor Smith. I loved it, Elinor! Aaand it single-handedly inspired me to get into this whole clog-rage that seems to be sweeping the style world this season. Here are a few of my favs to get you inspired too:

The Seychelles brand is doin' a stellar job, as usual, of giving us their dolled up version of the clog--especially with their 'Twistin The Night Away' pumps! Although I'm unsure about dancin' & twistin' any nights away in these, I am sure that I could pair these up with a sweet outfit for day or evening outings. The dazzling pewter color is an easy and comfy way to dress up any outfit with little effort. Perfect crisscross leather strappies, too! Woo-wee!


Another Seychelles clog-fav of mine is the new 'Care to Dance' clog, also featured at a good price on Endless.com (and free shipping, gals!). These boast just the right height to give some length to those cute-cute legs of yours, while showing off a knotted detail down the side of the shoe. Both Whiskey & Black leather shades are adorable, in my humble opinion, so you can't go wrong there. These are both playful & classic in all the right ways.
TwentyThirtyForty.net is a new site to my style-spotting eyes and I'm so glad I found them! They offer tons of unique threads, accessories & shoes--you'll be shopping for days on their page, no doubt. New York-based designer Rachel Comey shows off this fantastic 'Closed Toe Twisted Clog' that will positively have you running to the closet to wear with anything in your wardrobe this spring. All of that twisted leathery detail and cute little buckle are sure get you thru long days at work when all you can do is stare are your shoes and think....'ahhh, what a good purchase!' ...not that I ever do that myself, just sayin'.


Clog culture at it's finest.

  1. I've been wanting a pair of clogs since I saw them on the Chanel Spring runway! and I fell in love with the Jeffrey Campbell Charli clog... I hope to get it soon. much more affordable than the Chanels, but oh how great it would be if the Chanel ones magically appeared on my door step!

    Happy Wednesday sweetie.

    xx Love & Aloha

Shoe closet love.

I will be the first to stand up and admit that I have a fabulous husband. Not only is he smart, funny, creative and patient, but he's pretty darned hot too! I still consider us newlyweds (and probably will for quite some time), because we're always doing thoroughly silly stuff for one another--keepin' things fresh, fun and surprising, ya know? Here's one of my fave pics of us, taken a few years ago during our engagement photoshoot. Good times. That being said, I was still simply breath-taken when I came home from a way-too-long day of work and found that my sweet beau had used his furlough day (yes, it's not just a vicious rumor that we have those all over the place in the state of CA) to transform our hall coat closet into none other than a shoe closet . You heard me right... shoe closet = every girl's dream, ya? We don't really use our hall coat closet anyway, living in such a warm southern California city, so I was thrilled to actually put this space t

Long time, no type.

You guys. Has it seriously been a full YEAR since I've typed up a blog post on here? That is both depressing and encouraging. Depressing--because I feel like I have forgotten about my first "child" my Holly in Heels blog. Encouraging--because it means that I have been suuuper busy with other fun and creative projects, like my continued PR and media copywriting, contributions to Coyote + Oak magazine out of San Luis Obispo, as well as Locale Magazine 's newest San Francisco addition. I have to admit that while these other (paying) jobs keep me busy and on my toes, I do stop and think about my former life as a fashion and lifestyle blogger, and how I miss the creative outlet. To be able to write about whatever topic I choose is certainly a gift. Writing is also therapeutic for me--this blog is like a friend. Like the kind you can call up anytime, talk about the deep stuff and then mention this new conditioner you tried...and then switch back to the meaning of lif

5 Creative Ways to Store and Display your Fabulous Shoes.

Before we begin...I need to ask for your forgiveness. I haven't blogged  since May . Ahhhh! Shame on me, I know. But before you grab your voodoo doll and punish me for the lack of shoe inspiration I've been sending your way, please be proud of my for massively growing my freelance writing business, tackling some public relations work, and stepping up  my Instagram pop-up shop . It's been fun, but the blog has been lacking. Luckily, I got guest blogger, Kelsey, to help me out this week with a fun story about how to creatively store and display your shoes (and keep you looking stylish, too!). Read on. . . . Shoes can pose a serious storage problem, even in spacious closets. The average American owns 19 pairs of shoes , while most shoe lovers are guilty of hoarding many more than that. This can too easily cause clutter and set us back 5 or 10 minutes during our morning routines. If you need shoe organization ideas to get a wrangle on your repertoire, Modernize has sever
