Something Fresh

I have a dear friend who just adores the color green. It's so sweet, because whenever I see her, she's managed to splash the color green into some element of her outfit--whether it be shoes or accessories or a funky hair ornament--she's always bringin' the green! I think it charms me the most because she said once that the color reminds her of growth and freshness and the start of something new. What a good thought.

Well today that thought inspired to me to hunt down happy green kicks, just in time for spring 2010. I knew I could find 'em! Some of which I've actually purchased myself, so I'll tell you how they fit when they land on my doorstep. In the meantime:
. . .

These BP. 'Geneva' Platform Sandals can only be found at the adored (very similar to these Mia 'Cristina' wedges on Piperlime, though). They're at a killer price and are perfectly paired with wide-leg linen pants or pretty spring dresses. The green suede on these is just so striking, it gives you a perfect grassy burst of color.

And how about these Miz Mooz 'Waverly' Sandals to add a retro spin to your modern-girl outfit?! Perfectly curved & slender glossy green straps wrap right up the foot to the back ankle zipper. A short & sweet 2 1/2" heel promises comfy all-day wear.
If it's the Bohemian chick look that you're after, you've met your match with these Frye 'Dara' Sandals. A chunky wooden-heeled & studded platform is designed with a fabulous teal green leather, and just the right amount of shabby-chic to spice up any solid spring outfit.

Here's to something fresh! Happy Spring.

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
