Silky Meets Shine

It's Friday--and man oh man, what a week it's been. I hear that lazy Saturday mornin' calling my name right now (mmm, fressshh coffee too). There's nothin' like it! Well, when I turned on my computer today, my friends at Shop It To Me turned me onto a great shoe deal at! What a treat! You'll be happy with these little sweetums on your feet--silky meets shine and found some color too: Darcy satin-and-patent pumps

...made in Italy, these pumps give you just the right amount of lift with a modest 2 1/2" heel (buyer's tip: order a half size larger than normal). And look closely for that thin pink line that rides all the way around the opening of the pump--Ooo girl, it's all in the details!

  1. HiH, I am LOVING the low-heel height of these adorable pumps from J. Crew. For us ladies with a taller stature, finding good, CUTE heels that don't make us tower over the crowd is always a tough thing to find. I'd love to hear more thoughts on that... consider it an 'article request'! Cute heels without TOO much 'lift'! Your thoughts?...

  2. I like the color but I prefer higher heels. :)

  3. Well, Anne C.--I'm happy to honor the request for a write-up on more 'low-heel pumps'! Great idea!

    And TheFashionAve--so glad you prefer higher heels, I do too, since I'm lacking in the height area ;)

    Thanks to you both for the comments! More to come.
    xoxo, holly

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
