Day 12.

Hello fashion friends!
As many of you already are aware, I'm well underway on my six items or less challenge, where I'm only to wear 6 items out of my ENTIRE wardrobe for 30 days (my saving grace = shoes and accessories do not count). Today marks DAY 12, and I ain't gunna lie: it's hard as heck. I've worn SO many necklaces, earrings, scarves, bangles, and belts outta my collection - some I even forgot I own! And my once-adored black & white striped billowy top is now one of my worst enemies, as I'm stuck throwin' it on for every time we go out to dinner or to a fun party (insert sad face here). On the other hand, my mustard yellow long cardi is a splash of color I usually look forward to putting on (actually wearing it today!). And thank goodness for my extra-large collection of shoes, in all heights, colors and textures. I think my adoration for shoozies has grown (if that were ever possible). All in all, I am learnin' a lot, but still excited that I'm nearly halfway done with my 30-day sentence!

I do have some more exciting news: on Monday I'll be announcing a fabulous HIGH HEEL GIVEAWAY! Yep, the chic shoe company sponsoring this giveaway is yet to be revealed, but I know you'll all be stoked! Make sure your lil' typing fingers log onto on Monday to find out more & enter to win win win!

That is all from high-heel homebase. Happy Friday, ladies.

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
