Times are a changin'

Isn't it funny how things change over time? I guess this new year of 2011 already has me thinkin' about time, and change, and seasons (maybe the rainy weather outside is doin' that to me too!). Well, times must be a-changin' because the two things at the TOP of my wishlist this January are two things I woulda never suspected to be amongst my favorites at this time last year! Wonderin' what those two things are? Welp, here ya go...

Number 1: slingbacks.
Yes yes, I'll be the first to admit that I sorta thought most slingbacks were a thing of the past--like Milli Vanilli or Reebok Hi-Tops (yep, they STILL sell those!). But these Sam Edelman 'Ionia' slingbacks have thoroughly changed my mind! These classics are styled and shaped such that they will never be a thing of the past. With a shorty 1" heel, and a sweet lil' buckle, these stunning shoes are sure show-stoppers, finished off with Sam's signature gold emblem (cute cute!).

And, number 2: an address stamp.
Ok, so it wasn't until I got married (almost 2 years ago now) that I realized I was in dire need of an address stamp. You would not believe all of the Christmas cards we send out to family & friends, the thank-u notes, the thinking-of-you letters, etc. etc. Our social circle has literally doubled in size! And since the hand-written letter is certainly not dead, despite the convenience of e-mail, a dainty little return address stamp is a must! I'm lovin' this Etsy shop I discovered called the Rubber Stamp Press. They have tons & tons o' darling stamps like this one (which I adore!):

Times ARE a changin' right? And I kinda like it! So again, happy 2011!

P.S. hope you all are liking the NEW LOOK of my blog, which I just launched last week! Click around & comment away!


  1. I love the new look!! I also adore sling backs and need one of those awesome address stamps!

  2. Love the layout and those slingbacks! So chic! I used to wear some red slingbacks a while back but I always got the worst cuts on my ankles. Why don't they make some soft ones?

  3. I love address stamps! I think they're absolutely darling.

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
