Do you Choo?

I have to admit that it's only once in a GREAT great while that I'll splurge on shoes. And I frankly have no qualms about that, because the fewer splurges I act upon, the fewer shoes I can get! Well, lately, in my dream world (which is about as shoe-filled as you can imagine!) I've been visioning myself in a pair o' Jimmy Choos. Pretty fun, right? So I ask that you amuse me for a few minutes on this Monday and check out these new releases from sweet Jimmy-Jim-Jim...

Named the perfect statement boot, Jimmy Choo has come out with a line of printed Pony ankle boots, that measure just over 4-inches in heel height and bounce off the charts with style. The signature 'Alanis' boot is a luscious leopard print (right on-trend!) and although it would take up practically my whole paycheck to pay for these, I've decided a gal can still dream! A curvaceous back zipper fastens these on up the back, and the softly pointed toe is a fantastic finish. Have you started singing lyrics of Alanis Morissette songs in your head yet...'cause I have (it's like rayyyyn, on your weddin' day!). Come on--I could see miss jagged little pill sportin' these Choo's around town, couldn't you?!

A little more simple (and a tad less pricey!), Jimmy's 'Action' boots are straight outta your man's favorite Bourne movie: think sassy evil spy. Also with a modestly pointed toe, these are the perfect zip-up boots to throw on with any fall/winter pencil skirt & sheer black tights, or even paired up with skinny trousers. Woooowee!

Both of these boots are from the CHOO 24:7 Collection--a handpicked variety of boots with an array of colors, materials and heel heights. So from the classic buckled biker boot, to the urban-chic kicks, to even the platform-heeled favorites, this collection has it all covered for ya!

So do tell: do you Choo? Or do you save your pennies for more approachable brands like Steve Madden, Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, and Jessica Simpson??

  1. I would love to Choo or Blahnik, but would have to save for them. I buy mid-price brands like Circa Joan & David, Calvin Klein, and sale Via Spiga. And any heel over 3 inches is impossible for me to walk in!

  2. I LOVE all things Jimmy Choo -- these are all so gorgeous!

  3. Dont have any but would love to :)

  4. I wish I could affrod one of those - especially that leopard print one - I die. So gorgeous.
    I really need to go out and find a pair of cute ankle boots for fall. :) Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  5. Love them but would never get as far as saving that much money before spending it. I always seem to be tempted by 2 or 3 less expensive pairs than one expensive pair.

  6. I wish I Choo-ed but I just Nine West or Michael Antonio :)

  7. I love the way you directly get to the point,inspired

  8. Once you Choo, you never go back. :)

    My first designer pair of shoes were Jimmy Choo and then I was a woman obsessed. I bought like 5 pairs of Choos in a month and then after that the designer shoe obsession never stopped!

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
