The fashion calendar is, without a doubt, terminally screwed up. By the time weather cools down, all of the fall and winter stuff is ready to go on sale. By the time it’s genuinely cold outside, there are a fraction of the apparel options you would have had for that weather in the swelter of August. If you, like us, have just about walked through last year’s everyday booties and need a new pair, we’ve rounded up the best of January’s options. Read More…

Black and white checkered board print may remind some of us of our grandparents’ linoleum kitchen floors (or maybe it’s just me?), but I assure you Daniele Michetti knows how to incorporate this print in the most a luxurious manner. The Daniele Michetti Dionne Checked High Heel Shoe Boots are a modern and elegant twist to the normally edgy print.

Before launching his eponymous shoe line, Daniele Michetti honed his skills working for luxury brands like Burberry Prorsum and Yves Saint Laurent. Read More…

How I ever lived life without an ankle boot is beyond me. Looking back, I can’t see why I would have ever actually had a need for one (most people don’t wear ankle boots on the beach in my native Florida), but living in New York means I can hardly remember life before them. Most of us spend endless hours amongst hours scouring the Internet for the perfect pair, and while we all love the additions of studs, buckles and cap toes, there’s nothing quite like the simplicity of just a plain, solid boot.

Let’s face it, we all wish money was no object and that we could afford to go into our favorite stores, pick out everything we ever wanted and never have to worry about how much we just charged on our credit cards. Sounds like a pretty great life, right? I figured if that’s not possible right now, the second best thing is to dream up the outfit I would be wearing if I could. Read More…

Sometimes you look at a pair of shoes and know that no matter how much you love them, you’ll likely only wear them a couple of times before they get relegated to the back of your closet forever. Other times, you lay eyes on some shoes and know that they’re destined to be a go-to for as long as your cobbler of choice can keep them in solid working order. Read More…

Rhinestones, heavy embellishments a super-luxe look are the driving force behind the Le Silla brand. While some people may shy away from an overly ornamented shoe, the brand proves that subtle and impactful ornamentation does indeed exist, especially with the Le Silla Lace Up High Top Sneakers, Pointed Toe Booties and Studded Booties.

Even though all three share the same color palette and crystal studs, all are similar and yet drastically different. Read More…

There’s no doubt all of us have that favorite pair of black boots we wonder how we ever lived without, but sometimes, you want a little change. While I spent most of my weekend perusing the Internet for new goodies to buy, I couldn’t help but notice the surprising number of navy blue boots everywhere.

I’ve never really been enticed to buy a colored boot, but the great thing about navy is that despite being blue, it’s a neutral because it goes with just about anything. Read More…

I may not be a country girl, but I can always find a way to wear a great pair of cowboy boots. When I first laid eyes on these Ivy Kirzhner Caballero High Heel Harness Booties, I will admit I didn’t like them. However, sometimes even with things you don’t like, you are compelled to look closer. When I did, well, my initial feeling was still the same…for the most part. Read More…
