Gimme Some Height!

For a short gal, nothin' gets by me! I'm constantly on the lookout for fabulous heels, wedges & pumps that are generous in height and chintzy in cost! So my eyes were wide, wide open when I found these four pretty finds online today. I hope that the more leg-gifted gals reading this won't feel too left out (or that they'll embrace the Heidi Klum inside 'em and sport some 4-inchers!). It's time for the rest of us to test the air up there!
. . .

Fresh off the design boat, I've found these brand spankin' new Jessica Simpson 'Cawder' wedges. Isn't that Dark Chocolate leather color to-die?! Careful, that ropey wedge is 5-inches in heel, but these are perfect vacation shoes for your sunny summer days. Lucky you--FREE SHIPPING at on these too! Score.
For the less brave when it comes to heels, Hive and Honey 'Pelka' shows off this perfect stacked heel--a exclusive! Three cute colors to choose from, I'm mostly feelin' the cool, muted 'Cement' shade (although I like the gold too!). This leather, ruffly t-strap makes for a perfect step into spring & summer, where a party girl's sure to need go-to daytime shoes for all those fun outdoor events!
Maybe it's my downfall, but I totally & utterly admire a girl who can splurge every now and again. This would fall under that category, m'friends, but I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't be worth it! The L.A.M.B. 'Veena' heels will take you straight to heaven when you slip them on, guaranteed! Another 4" covered heel gets you there, and the sweet flower detail at the toe puts the sugar on top!
Rounding out the end of this high-heel-lovin' are the uniquely daring Nanette Lepore 'Secret Love' heels--an extreme bestseller. The criss-cross ankle strap has me wondering if these are really practical to wear (even for MY standards), but it's tough to call since there are no online reviews quite yet. Hmmm, maybe it's a good idea for me to hit that cute little 'add to bag' button and find out as a favor to us all?! Ha, my rationale! At any rate, these neutral peep-toes have tons of good detail that's sure to catch an eye.

Happy shopping, gals! Remember: be brave and get some height!

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
