Heels gone wild!

Ever get a little tempted to let your wild side show? I'm talking fashion-wise, ladies (not spring break wise, simma' down)--like pair some fabulous bubblegum pink heels with an everyday jeans & tee outfit, OR throw on a black leather mini instead of your usual pencil skirt! Please tell me I'm not alone on this one! In fact just the other day I wore a black & white striped tee with some boyfriend jeans, and threw on my leopard peeptoe flats--and I thought "hey, who knew stripes & animal print would work?". Well, fancy that--one of the up & comin' fall trends this season is the leopard pump. It's baaaaack! And wilder than ever.

Take this animal-inspired 'Otto' Pump by Rocket Dog, for instance. It ain't easy finding just the right pattern & shade of leopard brown, tan & black, but Rocket Dog has DONE IT. A smaller & satin-y animal print makes these the perfect standard pumps to toss on & spice up an outfit in a flash. Great deal on these babies, too!

The Vince Camuto 'Festa' Pumps are a steal of a deal too, with a gorgeous lighter-leopard pattern and a dark piping detail all around. These 'Festa's will be takin' your cute self straight from long days at work to lively happy hours after the desk job day is done--and you'll have the entire office talkin' about what a fashionista you are! 3-inches of lovely.

Sometimes you gotta just turn to a staple-brand. Mine is Steve Madden. Mr. Madden tends to carry just what I need--whether it be a basic wedge, a work-ready pump or even a patterned peep-toe. When I need a cute heel (or event a flat, gasp!), I know just where to park & walk into the mall where I can snag a shoe STAT. I'm lovin' this Steve Madden 'ULLTRA-L' Pump especially. It's got that understated, just-the-right-height heel--practically put on the face of this earth to be your standard "kick it up a notch" pump!

Sooooo, are you ready to unleash your wild-side yet? You've only gotta few more weeks 'til fall officially starts! Get crazy, leopard lova's!

  5. Steve Madden is my dream-man...I'm sure of it. :)

  6. I'm almost ashamed (but not really, hah!) to admit I own no less than four pairs of leopard print shoes. But hey, they're all different! OBVIOUSLY a girl needs ballet flats, sandals and two pairs of high-heeled pumps with leopard print!! :p

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
