The Nighttime Wedge

I don't know about you all, but I'm a huge fan of Rachel Zoe. She's adorably funky and genuinely inspires me with her daring style and pretty red lipstick. Ms. Zoe just released her fabulous Excessorize list: 20 Essential Accessories, and of course the first thing out of those top 20 to catch my eye were the shoes! Rachel says (and I quote),
For the upcoming warmer months, every girl should have a pair of standout wedges. They will comfortably and stylishly take you from the office to out.Genius. This is what we need, girls! Think about it--this Saturday marks the first day of Spring, and what better way to kick off that sunshine than to treat yourself to some standout, nighttime wedges to walk you from cubicle to happy hour, without a hitch. Here you go!

Makin' it's way easily into Rachel Zoe's top 20 Excessorize list is this startlingly studded suede & leather wedge: Pour La Victoire 'Tula'. Wow, so much detail wrapped up in one 4" heel--the toe and side cutouts let in the style, while the gold hardware lets out your wild side! Effortlessly paired well with slouchy capris, wide-leg trousers or a sharp pencil skirt. Wicked, girl!

I know how hard it is to top those Pour La Victoire beauties, but I felt like I owed it to my readers to give you a few "runners up" that fit more within that summer budget. After all, if you've spent all of your moolah on vacations and mai tai's, then you might not have a few hundo to drop on one pair of wedges! I get it, I get it, don't worry, there are plenty of fish in the sea. For example... one of my personal favs, the Emma Pink 'Pepper' wedge. The numerous side cutouts and center seam detail make this pick uniquely stylish and fun to wear (and look super comfy too).
The dark and vampy Kenneth Cole Reaction 'Carpool Lane' wedge holds a soft leather look (although looks soft suede from afar, huh) bound together by a few studded details and a thin, flattering ankle strap. Definitely nighttime-wedge-worthy...aaand, under 80 bucks!

Next up, I'd like to introduce you to the magificently classic and versatile Nine West 'Entire' wedge. Truly a gladiator-inspired platform wedge, this 3 1/2" cork heel will give you that sexy spring/summer lift you've been waiting for! Can you say "meet me by the pool, margarita in hand?" I can!

Last but certainly not least, the Michael Antonio 'Harris' strappy wedge gives you instant, unpredictable height. Beyond doubt, you are one cute individual in these wedges: with charming buckles that wrap nicely around your ankle, and a dark wood platform that finishes off one spicy-hot nighttime wedge!
Look forward to hearing about your good times in the nighttime (wedge).

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

Long time, no type.

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
