[Editor’s Note: As we spend some quality time with our family and friends this holiday, we are scaling back our editorial and will be back to our regular schedule after the New Year. Also, we’re in the midst of trying something new: from now on, our biggest features will appear on PurseBlog. Until the New Year, we will be running both new content along with some of these features that were posted on PurseBlog.]


The end of the year always brings about reflection on the 12 months that came before, and when you write blog posts every day, it brings about reflection on those, too. We took a look at the numbers to find the ten posts that you loved the most in 2014, and you can check out our countdown below. (more…)

We’re more than halfway through November, but you’d never be able to tell by this week’s #showmyshoes roundup. While we may be bundling up in coats and scarves, shoe choice is a completely different story. We saw plenty of open-toe shoes this week, plus a trifecta from Sophia Webster. Take a look at our favorites and continue using the hashtag for your chance to be featured! (more…)

NHD Notice If you head over to our sister site, PurseBlog, you’ll see that today’s a very big day: National Handbag Day! Participate in all the fun, and be sure to follow along with us on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #NationalHandbagDay, because a fabulous pair of shoes should always be paired with an equally fabulous bag!


Katherine’s already started her weekend early by jetting off to Las Vegas yesterday, but fret not: I’m here to provide you with your regularly scheduled helping of pre-weekend shoe deals. Sandals, pumps, booties – there’s a little bit of everything on sale this week. (more…)

As much as I love the bustling streets of the city, I recently reached that time when NYC and I needed a break from each other, so I coaxed some of my best friends to take a cruise with me to Bermuda! When we docked at the beautiful island, I was greeted with sunny skies, crystal blue waters, and the cheery natives getting us in the Bermuda spirit with a catchy saying: “Have a Bermudaful Day!

The beaches, towns, and marine life of Bermuda were absolutely beautiful. Since my friends left me in charge of our itinerary, we had a schedule to stick to (much to my friends’ dismay, but they knew what they were getting into). Snorkeling and paddleboat riding at Snorkel Beach Park and rock climbing at Horseshoe Bay were at the top of my to-do list, along with exploring the wonderful shops and restaurants on the island.

While I wanted to put work and life on hold, I couldn’t help but think of TalkShoes just a pinch. I wish you all could have seen the island with me, and below is a glimpse of some of my favorite moments (and shoes) from the island of Bermuda!

Despite the fact that shoes somehow manage to get more and more literal with every passing season, I find myself consistently impressed by how designers manage to push the trend ever further toward its logical extreme. Today brings the Melissa Karl Lagerfeld Black Tie Jelly Flats, which, as you can tell by the photo above, are exactly what they promise to be.

Karl Lagerfeld is a man with a very specific, recognizable aesthetic and a sense of humor about himself, which has lead to his creation of or collaboration on numerous products that use his image in a cartoonish way. This shoe has all the hallmarks of those pieces – cheeky, literal and irrepressibly Karl.

If you want a pair of your own, pick them up for $190 via Neiman Marcus.

Reese Witherspoon, heading into Dr. Harold Lancer’s clinic (a doctor who celeb rags dub a “dermatologist to the stars”) in LA. It’s slightly alarming how often stars with great skin visit the dermatologist. Reese is donning a black and white pair of minimal Proenza Schouler Ankle Wrap Sandals, which can currently be found on sale for $262 at Shoescribe.com (down from $595).

Reese has yet to disappoint us in the designer shoe department. Or in the fashion department, for that matter. You can check out some of her best designer looks and acquisitions in “The Many Shoes of Reese Witherspoon”, “The Many Bags of Reese Witherspoon”, and “The Many Bags of Reese Witherspoon, Part 2.”
