Patterned Perfection!

One thing that I'm admiring in several designers this season is their fresh use of pattern--geometric lines and shapes and textures--when creating a new shoe. Have ya noticed? I think that's what pulls my artsy eye toward Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs! Now, I say this acknowledging fully that I'm just not in the mood for funky-busy-color patterns every day of my funky-busy-color life...but today I'm in the mood for patterned perfection, and I just had to pass it on!

Lay your eyes on these babies, m'dears! This tied-up Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Gommone' platform may not say "all-day wear" to you, but it sure shows off one striking pattern to me! Spotted on a few Hollywood stars already this season, these Italian-made platforms are bursting at the seams with style (also check out this version of the M by MJ 'Gommone' platform...orrrr even the hot orange version).

I also just couldn't keep my eyes off of this mesmerizing, patterned Lucky Brand 'Koko' wedge. This tribal-inspired platform wedge is a versatile, neutral kick that will have heads turning your way! I adore the side/top buckle too--way'ta kick it up a notch, Lucky Brand!
If funkalicious patterns just aren't your thang, but you still dig bright color and a true standout shoe, I'll share with you that Marc Jacob's '605645' clog is another fave of mine this season (and ready for you to buy with FREE 2-day shipping on Endless right now! Woo!). A narrow lace-up down the middle & double studs on each side make this clog-like-lovely a shoe-in.

Here's my shout-out to my gorgeously long-legged readers: Marc's flower-adorned, low heel 'Posillipo' sandal! Yessss, finally a low heel on the HinH blog--you cannot believe it, I know! Well, at under $300 (a deal for Jacobs' shoes) this freshly flowered shoe can be yours to add to your spring/summer sandal collection. A dash of color + hints of metallic make this a great all-day & any-occasion find.

So whether these peppy patterns and stunning colors are merely eye-candy to you, orrr you're just now hitting the 'add to cart' button--you have to admit these kicks are pretty darned fun! Enjoy, shoe-sistas!

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
