All Strapped In.

Are you ready for a ride?! Well, with the help of a few of my fave shoe designers, you'll be all strapped in for a fun fun summer of style. That's right, it's an absolute must to be decked out in strappy sandals this summer 2010. You pick the color, I'll give you the direct inspiration. Here we goooo!

. . .

If you know me even just a little bit, you'll know that I'm such a sucker for Jessica Simpson heels, wedges, sandals--you name it! There's something preppy & chic about those JS kicks. They squeeze their way into my heart so fast, and pair up nicely with most anything in my closet. For example, this Jessica Simpson 'Amithist' Wedge. Need I say more? A great tall, tan wedge that'll have you dancin' thru May, June and July! Killer price, too.
If it's variety you're after, I've got just the shoe for you! Keep 'em guessing with these fantastic Charles David 'Tamale' Platform Wedges! Woo, hot tamale! These leather lovelies have you strapped in across the toe and boast an eye-catching mosaic-inspired design at the top. Brass studs mark the Charles David details, and a sweet back buckle to finish it off. These are super high and promise to give you a big boost of 'wow'!
Piperlime's got me drooolin' over these 89-dolla babies: Nine West 'Ponti' Wedges. They're sorta reminding me of gladiators, but I think they lean a little more dressy than your typical gladiator sandal/heel. They're some sassy wedges, let's face it! And they're a good go-to wedge for those hot-date-filled summer evenings. Nine West hasn't made a shoe that isn't totally comfy on my foot too, so I'm thinkin' you should catch these while you can, ladies...before I beat you to it!

Ooo, and last up here's your Pre-Fall strappy heel bonus!: I just got word that Jimmy Choo's new 'Aston' pumps are out for all to see (which you can also pre-order now!). So daring and feminine. They're a pretty penny, sure sure, but a beautiful, fresh look for the upcoming months. And it never hurts to look, right?

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
