Sky-high neutrals are walking your way!

Well, it's official: alluring springy platform sandals in chic neutral tones are draping the department stores & online shopping-ville everywhere I look! It's so super fun to see so many designers' takes a nude-colored sky-high wedges, strappy sandals and espadrilles. And if I do say so myself, has done a fabulouso job of giving us a good mix of what to wear this spring. Per Holly in Heels ritual, I've pulled some of my fav styles in the most breathtaking price ranges you'll find this side of shoe heaven. From the pop-star lines like Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers & Jessica Simpson's JS line, to the ever-classic Sam Edelman and Michael Kors brands--you're sure to find a tall, tall sandal to take you fashionably from mall Mondays to fiesta Fridays.
. . .

Harajuku Lovers 'Karis' Sandal towers high above the spring treetops, in the most funky way possible I must say! That platinum princess Gwen has done it again--the mesh, the pink soles and the buckled ankle--all let everyone know that you've arrived to the party. These 'Karis' sandals are not for the faint of heart (or weak of ankle!), with their 4 1/2" heel, and 1 1/4" platform, wowza. But they are beautiful on, and are for sure scoring high on your night out with the girls list! Under $90 too!
A bit more tame on the Richter scale of funk is this 'Kasi' Platform Espadrille (also from Harajuku Lovers' line). All twisted & knotted up at the center, this pretty dark brown leather is a color that makes for a good daytime or evening heel. A sweet, tiny buckle wraps delicately around the back of the ankle, while the roped base of the heel is ready to take you places! Add to wish list pu-leez!

Up to bat next, this Sam Edelman 'Kasi' Sandal is just plain gorgeous in my book (yep, and same style name as the Harajuku's above! Crazy, right?). I wasn't sure about that basket-weavers-dream, meshy leather wrapped all the way around the shoe (to the very sole!), but it quickly grew on me as it made it's style statement. Mr. Edelman sure makes some amazing wedge sandals--with a touch of class + hippie chic, he's got it nailed.
I couldn't resist featuring another Sam Edelman I found on (free shipping people, seriously), the Sam Edelman 'Kyla' Sandal. Hey, and it's another fully wrapped-up sandal with another good woven design on top! This time suede is the weapon of choice, and I'm loving the back of the wedge where a light wooden heel decided to peek through! Such a cool detail like that goes a looong way.
Simple & sweet the Michael Kors 'Meadow' Wedge Sandal surely gets an honorable mention for being so stinkin' clean cut and versatile. Rustic, stacked wedge and an amber brown x-strap make these your easy spring & summer staple, m'friends!
Miss Jessica Simpson may not be an expert when it comes to picking her men, but she sure knows a good shoe, eh? I'm lovin' these towering Jessica Simpson 'Heathery' Wedges, ideal for vacations and poolsides (bonus: sassy leopard accent design!). A sweet, smooth desert sand shade of leather's at the top, and stitching 'round the bottom gives good detail & flair. PLUS, you're gonna love the way your legs look in these tall thangs!

Ok, get ready...finale heel. These might be a tad outta your price range, but they're not a bit outta my dream-range! Dream with me! The Velvet Angels 'Le Mambo' Platform Sandal is geometrically perfect, in all the right spots. These are your spring dancin' shoes, ladies, just you wait! The chain link straps across the front bring a real unique style to a shoe that's pretty unforgettable. In every way.
Well, I've given you a lot to chew on here! Have fun and happy heel hunting.

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
