Oscar style!

I love Oscar time. There's just something about the Academy Awards that gets me all starstruck and excited! This year, my fashion-ready star-gazing happened from the comfort of my squishy suede couch in the heart of my comfy living room. My dates to this at-home Oscar party were Ben & Jerry (yep, a pint of Chunky Monkey always does the trick!) and some delish Mexican food. Obviously, I was thankful I didn't have to squeeze myself into a sparkly dress, but it was sure fun to watch 'em! Here are a few of my Holly in Heels faves...

Hailee Steinfeld no doubt gets some props for showin' off her kicks! It's rare that a red carpet star wears a dress that doesn't hit the floor, and I'm proud that this lil' 14 year old was showing off her satiny peep toe heels! Great dress, Hailee in heels!

Ever since her Dawson's Creek days, I've been adoring Michelle Williams and her very pixie-girl style. Her angelic look lit up the red carpet last night, and her dramatic makeup sealed the deal. You can see her metallic platforms shining through this gorgeous gown.

Scarlett Johansen simply can't do wrong in my book. She's curvy and stunning, and has that rebel girl look to her. I love that she went a bit off path here with this high neck plumb lace gown. Looks stunning with her smokey eye makeup and tousled locks. The question is: what shoes could she be wearing??

Melissa Leo, nominated for best supporting actress for "The Fighter," arrived to the Academy Awards in a gorgeous high-neck lace dress, with t-strap metallic sandal heels. What a great springtime look, Ms. Leo!

And finally, Australia-born star Nicole Kidman may not have my favorite dress of the night (surprisingly, because it was Dior couture), but I'm givin' mad props to her for her red shoe choice. What a striking dash of color on such a special award-winning night!

Happy post-Oscar day!

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
