Wang on the runway

It's about this time every year that I begin to wish I lived in New York. All of the other months I'm a happy, happy Cali-girl, but fashion week has got to be the envied event of the year--hosted in NYC when the weather is deliciously perfect, pre-fall. Well, featured on the NYFW runway on Saturday, sporting his white-out Spring 2010 line, was the San Francisco-born, 26-year-old designer, Alexander Wang. Mister Wang believes that "a tee and jeans can be as stylish as a silk dress" so in 2009 he launched T Alexander Wang, a slouchy-sexy line of tees, tanks and jersey dresses! Pretty fun, huh?! He's also held the prize of several coveted awards, including the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund Award, and the Swarovski Designer of the Year Award. But let's have YOU to be the judge this time on AW's uber-unique Fall 2010 shoe collection, featuring lots of brand new vibes and tall square chunky heels...

Alexander Wang's 'Alana' boots are made of heavenly, velvety goodness, and stand at a nearly-nutty 4 1/2" tall (with 3/4" hidden platform). They hit about mid-calf with stitching detail up the middle and around the top opening of the boot.

Or hav'a look at these 'Addison' pointy-toe, dual colored boots. A faded yellow creeps up on this all-leather brown boot, that stands at just over 5-inches tall. Runway only, or could you see yourself on the street with these puppies on?
Check out the black & blue leather version of the 'Addison' platform boots from the fall collection, too (and try not to be too too distracted by those pokey ribs comin' outta that boney model, sheesh!).

The Alexander Wang 'Constance' bootie is probably the most tame of the runway group, with it's muted, black leather and slight touch of blue to highlight the toe. Long laces tie at the ankle for a more conservative finish to this high-fashion heel. Personally, I think this one's kinda funky-fun! Pretty sure I could strut my stuff thru the dirty sidewalks of NYC in the 'Constance' bootie!

Whatchoo think about Alexander Wang? Yay or nay? Do tell!

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
