Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung--well, almost. Really your spring shoe shopping is what shoulda sprung by now and it's mandatory that you stock up on heels that are full of the following:
1) height: do not be afraid of platforms this season--even if you're a taller gal, these spring trends will make those legs look long & lean!
2) color: bright and vibrants are in, in addition to the neutral earthy tones
3) frill and detail: woven wedges and gladiators take the stage once again

As usual, I've got a few top picks to make the browsing a bit easier on you (and to fulfill my shoe obsession). Ooo, I'm so excited to share!

Nordstrom shares their spring pick, the 'Redondo' Sandal and I'm glad they did! That yummy berry patent with the double ankle strap covers your love of spring color & detail
nude footwear's Fleur Tashas pump also provides an amazing color boost--and ya just can't go wrong with a pretty peep-toe, right?
Steve Madden's 'Tuscan' Sandal is at a good price, and makes wearing a traditional gladiator sandal a bit more exciting. Check out all of that gold strappy goodness, cute stud detail and hot wooden textured wedge to finish it off. Whew!
Unleash that wild side with a little animal print--very hip right now. The wraparound pattern on these babies is gorgeous and funky and will turn heads when you walk the mall (or anywhere, really). The more height and texture, the better! Scope it out for yourself: Sam Edelman 'Katrice' Wedge Sandal

Ok, last up...every girl has to dream, right? Well, I certainly am no exception to that rule--I can drool over way-too-expensive shoes whenever I want to! Doesn't mean I'm gonna make the purchase, just browsing! I'm giving you personal permission to do the same. If nothing else, let Giuseppe Zanotti's wild Women's Pump inspire your spring shoe selections for 2010!

Happy spring!

  1. Love the Fleur Tashas pumps - gorgeous! I get nervous about the ankle straps on the others...I feel like they'll make my short legs look shorter?!?

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
