Black is back

So despite the 80-degree weather in so cal this week, I've got cute black pumps catching my eye everywhere! For a lover of bright colors, it's really an unusual thing! I'm not sure if it's the fact that the girls at work are just getting extra stylish with their choice of heels right about now...or if I'm in that dark twisty mood again (if you watch Grey's Anatomy you know exactly what I'm talking about, thankyouverymuch), but I'm just sayin' that black is definitely back in the online shoe shopping world. And let's face it--black is a year-round necessity. These selections, my friends, are 'not your mother's black high heels' (unless your mother is Rachel Zoe, that is). I hope you're ready for some fun shoe-looks at some fabulous prices!

First up, the brand nude footwear shines some light on the subject with their Sunnie Day peep-toe pumps (shown left). Some girls wear ruffles on their skirts...some prefer ruffles on their sleeves...but YOU can now have ruffles on your shoes too! How adorable is THAT!?

Boutique 9 shows off a few sassy choices in black, starting with the Jayleen Sandal that gives us the strappy goodness we've been asking for! So much detail--these heels could go from daytime into evening and can work with a lotta stuff in that giant closet of yours, I'm sure.

The Boutique 9 brand is also workin' the peep-toe pump, don't worry. They've constructed these suede black platforms to give you height and style that's pretty effortless. The Udell pump sports a daring raffia covered heel and a gathered knot at the toe. And once again, the price is right on! Yep, that's right--Amazon pretty much carries everything (including the kitchen sink). It's basically like a trip to Target...but online.
Lastly, I have to show off Bandolino's Zaffle patent pumps. Truly a fall staple, it's at a good clearance price online right now! A solid 3 1/2" heel stands nice and thick for tons of all-day support and the stud accents at the midsole add just the right amount of detail and edgyness to your classic black heel. Another peep-toe here shows off that cute pedi that you treated yourself to last week, while reminding you how much you love patent leather.

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

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
