Get a Pedicure Because You Need These Sandals

I’ve been so busy, I’ve been putting off my regular pedicures for far too long.

The Summer Set: PVC Done Right

While a hint of PVC evokes thoughts of bright summer days, too much of it can send you down a slippery slope – literally. I don’t need to explain the sticky situation you find yourself in the latter case (shoes made entirely from PVC are gross in more ways than one).

Top 5 Floral Shoes: Bloom Me Away

While flowers may not be in bloom everywhere just yet, they certainly are on shoes! I’ve already starting shopping floral appliqué bags, but I’m sticking with prints for my footwear.

Hayden Panettiere at Armani Milan Menswear Show: Perfectly Polished

Hayden looked the part while attending the Armani Milan Menswear Spring Summer 2014 show recently wearing head to toe, what else, menswear inspired Armani. The top is a little aggressive but I like the idea of the bow-tie inspired fem twist of the top. The sandals are sweet, chic and a mix of loafer meets pump meets sandal.

Alexander Wang Maryna Sweatshirt Flannel Sandals: Keep It Casual

Only Alexander Wang could make chic shoes from sweatshirt flannel. His super-soft Ts have long impressed, but when you can make a heel comfortable, that’s even more of a feat. This is as relaxed as a 4+ inch sandal gets. Seriously, why buy ugly slippers when you have these??

Metallic Shoes: Silver Short Stacks

You can’t spend everyday in platform pumps. Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker – her doctor told her that all of those years strutting around the Sex and the City set in heels actually created a bone in her foot. Truly disturbing. So let’s try some shorter heels on for size. To make up for the … Continue reading “Metallic Shoes: Silver Short Stacks”

Miu Miu Embellished Slingback Sandal: Glitter Bomb

Bejeweled sandals can get tacky quickly, but these Miu Mius strike the balance between gaudy and good taste by sticking to just one metallic shade. Barneys calls it pale gold, but it looks pretty well tanned to me!
