Lily Collins x Brian Atwood Hamper Pumps: Hide and Peek

Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-Embellished Velvet Pumps: Floral Fantasy

With darker hues and bulkier, structured coats, autumn tends to bring out our more masculine sides, but after looking at these girly Dolce & Gabbanas, I’m ready to take my fall wardrobe in the opposite direction!

Top 5 Wedge Pumps

Top 5 Wedge Pumps: Living on the Wedge

The sensible wedge gets a stylish update for fall. Sure, these aren’t all that attention-grabbing, but they’re flattering, easy for any occasion, and best of all, incredibly comfortable.

McQ Alexander McQueen x Puma

McQ Alexander McQueen x Puma: Sneak a Peek

This Puma collaboration is crazy – as in, crazy good. When you think of the darkly romantic designs of McQueen, sneakers are certainly not the first pieces that come to mind, but with the runway sneaker boom in full swing, it’s not altogether surprising.
