Just nothin' like heels.

I've said it once, I'll say it again: there's nothin' like an amazing pair of heels. You can seriously MAKE a simple jeans & tee outfit by throwing on a killer pair of heels for a splash of color or texture or downright pizazz. So when I was browsing around on (my usual one-stop shoe-shop), I came across some amaaaayyyzing Rachel Zoe picks when it comes to shoes. Dang, that girl knows how to pick 'em! Would you agree?

Take, for one, the Matt Bernson 'Cortez' sandal. A super special triple buckle wraps this 3 3/4" heel into a summer sandal like no other. Can you picture these beauties on your summer shopping days, or even strolling down the boardwalk? I sure can.

I feel like I'm always talking about the brand Elizabeth and James (I swear they don't pay me!), but the style of that label is just that good. And the song's the same with the Elizabeth and James 'Harp' wedge--a nearly 5" heel with a 1 1/4" platform to support, this 100% leather beauty has immediately stolen my heart. The stichy-goodness all around gives this wedge an extra dose of lovely.

And last but not least, I'm also luvin' these maxxed out suede pumps--so sexy and cool with the zipper back and peep toe front. Whether it's date night, cocktail hour, or bachelorette party, the BCBGeneration 'Helara' pump is where it's at.

So the next time you're tempted to throw on a simple outfit, don't forget to grab for those heels. There's just nothin' like 'em!

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
