Weekend fashion.

I love where I live. Have I ever mentioned that? Ok ok ok, so Southern California is full of its downsides: traffic, overpopulation, high housing prices, over-botoxed girls, and too much stucco. But I'll be the first to admit that there's never a dull moment, never a lack of fun + beauty where I live. And this weekend is no different--the Orange County Fashion Association is puttin' on their high heels and spreading the fashion love all around the county with OC Fashion Week at the Artists Village in Santa Ana! All of the local stars and celebs will be out and about, and yours truly is beyond honored to be invited to cover the event, front row! Woohoo, holluh!

I'm especially excited to cover Saturday's OC Born Fall '11/Winter '12 fashion show--featuring locally-grown Adolfo Sanchez, 'retro-futuristic' brand Dual Society, contemporary California brand MATTEBLACK, and high-fashion iCTZN. All of these peeps will be struttin' their stuff on the runway, and I'll be tweeting away & eye'ing their style.

If YOU wanna head to OC Fashion Week and have a martini or two with yours truly (and talk shop of course), then visit the full schedule here and get your tickets now! They're goin' fast, and I know this is one fashion-forward week you don't wanna miss. And if you can only make the OC Fashion Week events via cyberspace, make sure to follow my tweets throughout the weekend for all of the deets (#OCFW2011).

So cheers to fashion, ladies!...and lovin' where you live.

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
