I'm in the mood for RED

It's Valentine's Day weekend and it's completely gotten me in the mood to bake heart-shaped cookies, cut out Valentines...and of course add some RED to my shoe closet! Let's face it here folks, a classic red heel (or even funky red heel) goes with just about anything--especially your little black dress that comes out of the closet every mid-February for it's night on the town. I've combed the shoe world once again, only to find the most adorable sizzling red heels, at some really great prices. Enjoy!...and if you don't have a V-day sweetheart this year, try on any of these red rubies and let me know how quickly your luck changes!
. . .

Kate Spade Candy pumps are a "bon bon of a shoe" as says! The thick striped red & black combo and the elegant black bow'd toe is the perfect finsher heel on any gorgeous outfit...and they contain fewer calories than a box of chocolates.

If you're lookin' for height, you've come to the right place! Steve Madden's red hot Toppazz pumps will give you that extra few inches you've been asking St. Valentine for and the lush ruffles at the toe give this shoe the girlish flair you are dyin' to show off!

Vince Camuto Marla pumps are fabulously high & dangerously studded. Watch out, young man, mama's gotta new pair'a shoes!
I think sweet satin shoes are hard to come by (and I'm not talkin' about the dyeables that your bride-friend forced you to purchase last year, whew!). These satiny reds are so rich and beautiful in color AND in style, with lines that wrap stunningly around your foot: Nine West Panout pumps
Pour La Victoire Adalene pumps are the classic and simple way to add color to any outfit, on any occasion (even cute with some cuffed dark jeans!). The heel height, the shade of red, the shape of the toe--definitely a good investment, if you ask miss heels herself!
And if 70's rocker girl is really more your style--I've found your metallic-heel-dream! Luxury Rebel makes some pretty fun, adventurously styled shoes that will steal your heart (and his!) at first sight: Luxury Rebel's studded peep-toe pumps

  1. the kate spade and nine west are my two favs of the bunch. tomorrow can we see your picks for pinks?

  2. Thank you, sweet ladies! Glad you're lovin' the reds! I'll do my best to spotlight some pinkitty pinks tomorrow <3

  3. Ooh la la!!! LOVIN' the red pumps!! Red heels have always been my fave. Especially paired with a 'boring' outfit... at work, an all-black suit is ahh-mazing paired with some red pumps. Adds a bit of 'sexy' without showing skin or anything, ya' know?! What is that about red pumps that just says 'HOT'?! Love it!!! Happy Valentine's, Holly in Heels! xx

  4. Love the Steve Maddens. Love the blog!

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
