A new me, a new you!

So it's t-minus 36 hours until the clock strikes the year 2011: can you even believe it? 2010 has been an amazing year for this little miss thang--especially because it was the year that the good ol' Holly in Heels blog began! Time sure flies when you're havin' fun (and shoe shopping along the way, of course!). Now it's time to ring in another New Year, alongside good friends, bubbly champagne, and Ryan Seacrest on TV. And all of this hoo-haw calls for a great outfit, and one darned good pair o' kicks! Here's a couple'a ideas from my short list of New Year's Eve favorites...

As if the Trump Family doesn't have enough fame & fortune already, Miss Ivanka Trump had to come out with a new line of shoes (you're HIRED!). Ivanka Trump's 'Pinki' glitter-girl heel is as shiny as the Trump Tower (and not nearly as expensive!). Sure to bring sparkle to your step on NYE, this sassy 4-inch pump has an indestructible synthetic outsole, making this $125 purchase well worth it!

If it's a shadowy lady look you're goin' for during the last few hours of 2010, then you'll no doubt wanna throw on Calvin Klein's 'Patrish' peep-toe ankle boot. Also a 4-inch heel, and 100% leather, you can wear these suckers now with tights, and then take them all the way into spring 2011 when the time rolls around!

...and of course I can't leave this sweet lil' post without mentioning my New Year's Resolution list! Here's what's (hopefully) in store for Holly in Heels:

• Write more letters

• Dream more

• Stop over-committing, and take more time to stop & smell the flowers

• Discover more new music

• Try eyelash extensions

• Practice the piano

• Take a notebook with me wherever I go

• Launch a new blog-look (check!)

• Have a killer high-heel giveaway on Holly in Heels (stay tuned!)

Ummmm, so the last two items (guess what): I already did! Yep, you guessed it (and hopefully you've noticed by now...or I'd say put it on your resolutions list to have those peepers checked), I launched A BRAND NEW BLOG LOOK, thanks to the lovely Kyla Roma of Freckled Nest Design! I'm so so so so excited about the new look of my blog, and even more stoked to announce my next giveaway (it's gunna be amaaay-zing, so stay tuned!). Go ahead and click around on the new pages and tabs and links on my blog--even paste the new html badge on your own site!

So here's to a New Year, and a new you! And do tell:
what are some of your New Year's resolutions?

Go on, leave some shoe-love!

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
