Suddenly you’ve got something cheerful and delightful for summer.

Crystal Heft: Boldly Embellished Shoes

Spring is the time to come out of your shell (or more likely, your cocoon of coats), leaving your shyness behind, and there is nothing shy about these crystal-encrusted shoes.

Trend Alert: Lace, Lace, Lace Shoes

You can’t rationalize indulging in every trend that pops up, but considering lace-making has been around since ancient times, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get a lot of wear out of the style.
