Trend Alert: Western Shoes

These western-inspired Giuseppe Zanotti mules in the center fulfill every single cowgirl dream I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to wear them with distressed boyfriend jeans or an ankle-grazing skirt.

Top Chunky Heels: A Weighty Issue

Those with weak ankles, rejoice! And pretty much all of us can enjoy a break from sky-high stilettos. Because it’s all about the chunky heel right now. When working a heel with some heft, it’s important the shoe have some feminine details. Otherwise, the look gets trashy way too quickly.

Aquazzura Queen Mixed Media Sandals

Aquazzura Queen Mixed Media Sandals: A Piece of Italy

One of my favorite things to do in Florence is shop at uniquely Florentine boutiques like the new Aquazzura store at the Palazzo Corsini. Besides the concept space serving as the brand’s headquarters and flagship, it’s located in a gorgeous, historical building built by the Medicis in the 15th century that was later bought by Maria Machiavelli.

Wedges to Cruise In

Wedges to Cruise In: All Feet on Deck

Now is as much the time to stock up on cute wedges as it is the time to collect winter coats. Why? Because you should be leaving those bulky jackets behind and hopping on a cruise! When I know I have a seafaring adventure on the horizon, the first thing I shop for is the perfect wedge.

Shopbop Boot Sale

Shopbop Boot Sale: 25% Off!

I love all sales, but when one takes place for something that you need now (and not for seasonally inappropriate or trendy pieces that are on their way out the door), I feel so much better about picking things up. Snow, rain, cowboy, Chelsea style, over-the-knee, heeled…there’s no shortage of boots on Shopbop!

Palter DeLiso

Palter DeLiso: What’s Old is New

One year ago, American-heritage brand Palter DeLiso relaunched after lying dormant for decades. Established as the first luxury shoe company the US in 1927, its initial founders gained fame for their invention of the peep-toe slingback heel (sorry, Loubie lovers!), so to say Palter has some rich history is a bit of an understatement.

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!
