Yolanda Foster wears TOMS shoes on a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills trip (5)

It’s rare that a Real Housewife lets something under $100 touch her body, and yet here’s Yolanda Foster, returning to LA after another exotic excursion with her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mates (rumor has it their destination was Puerto Rico). As you can plainly see, she’s wearing TOMS University Navy Rope Sole Women’s Classic Shoes. Maybe she was won over by TOMS comfy, charitable agenda, like practically everyone else on the planet.

Club Monaco Shoes

Club Monaco’s shoe line has been a long time coming. We’re such big fans of the brand that we’re surprised it the launch took as long as it did, but we’re delighted to see it finally here! With their target market being the sophisticated modern woman, Club Monaco has stuck to five basic silhouettes: a classic pump, an ankle boot, a heeled sandal, a slipper and a pointed flat.

Rupert Sanderson Valentia High Heel Booties

Sometimes, you see something that fills a need you didn’t even know you had. The Swiffer, for instance, made us wonder why we’d all put up with brooms and mops for so long. My iPhone made me wonder how I’d survived over two decades of life without constant access to maps, but somehow I did. Now, the Rupert Sanderson Valentia Booties have alerted me to another unattended need: ankle protection. Read More…

Blake Lively wears nude patent Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps (5)

Just yesterday we were waxing poetic about the new Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps – but of course, celebs and their stylists are weeks ahead of the curve. We dug up this pic of Blake Lively wearing a pair of So Kates to the premiere of Turbo last month. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait any longer to hop aboard the So Kate train – you can snag a black patent leather pair for $625 at Neiman Marcus. Read More…

Burberry Prorsum Leather Ankle Boots

It should come as no surprise, that when it comes to buying shoes we’re extremely picky. When you spend your days constantly browsing through shoes, you begin to develop a keen sense for the types of shoes that work and which don’t. Although I’m rather select when it comes to purchasing sandals and stilettos, nothing compares to my pickiness for boots. Read More…

Brian Atwood Cassandra Leopard Print Elaphe Pumps

Every time a trend swings away from one look and toward another, designers who’ve made their mark selling the old trend react with varying amounts of swiftness. Brian Atwood was one of the designers whose brand was notably left a bit in the lurch when fashion suddenly decided that it would abandon platform stilettos a few season back, and like Manolo Blahnik, who refused to make platforms, I thought Atwood might just plug away at the aesthetic he loves instead of adapting to the aesthetic that others currently favor.

Tyra Banks wears black curved heel Walter Steiger Booties to Good Morning America (5)

Tyra Banks paid a visit to Good Morning America last Friday in an extremely sharp pair of Walter Steiger Banded Ankle Booties. Walter Steiger is infamous for the exaggerated curved heel you see above, which I think we can all agree is a total game-changer. I love the futuristic vibe of this design – these shoes seem far more wearable than Alexander McQueen’s heel-less pumps or other similarly fashion-forward efforts from other designers, but with a similarly daring aesthetic.

Perfect Pairs K Jacques Essie

If there’s one thing my feet love this summer it’s being tan. There’s just something about having tan feet that makes me happy, perhaps because having been outside barefoot is the ultimate sign of summer. So while my feet continue to get tanner, my love for bright sandals continues to grow, which could explain why I was immediately drawn to these K Jacques St. Read More…
