Nine West -Ivorie, Black

Ciao a tutti!

My fellow Shoe-A-Holics, although I am not a fan of the cold, I am a fan of the footwear which accompanies the cooler weather; living in a sub-tropical climate, some summer sandals don't get the opportunity to be worn because of the intense heat and humidity.
So during the fall (and sometimes early spring), I take out my suede beauties and transition to the next season in style.  Suede sandals are an ideal piece to bridge the hot-to-cool (or cold-to-warm) seasons; with their open design paired with this warm, heavy fabric, one is suitably dressed from morning 'til night!

Baci a tutti!

Fioni -Karina

Ciao a tutti!

My fellow Shoe-A-Holics...have you ever had a pair of shoes that you bought for a special occasion, and the occasion passed without having worn said shoe?  Well, this is the story of these red satin ankle wrap sandals.  I bought these beauties to match a red satin gown I had with similar 'jewel' ornamentation for an event which has long slipped my mind, but these beautiful shoes have sat in my beloved Shoe Arsenal for, I imagine, 10 or 12 years.
The gown is in storage, or perhaps I have already donated it, but these shoes, needed to be worn.  My only dilemma was with what would I wear them?  I thought long and hard, and had even considered buying something new, when I went shopping in my closet and pulled out the perfect floral sateen short suit.  The combination of the color red, satin upper and jewel embellishment proved to be the perfect complement to suit and a warm autumn day.

Baci a tutti!

Steve Madden -P-Suzii

Ciao a tutti!

My fellow Shoe-A-Holics, these beauties that grace my feet today, I affectionately refer to as my 'Stand Up & Get Noticed Shoes'.  Every girl needs a head-turning-attention-grabbing-traffic-stopping pair of lust worthy heels that elevate your style, and these definitely fit the bill!
When looking for a pair of 'Stand Up & Get Noticed Shoes', my tips for you are simple:

Find a pair of shoes that you can walk in!  There is nothing un-sexier than a fabulous pair of heels on a person who is struggling to walk in them.  If you need to practice your strut, then do so, in increasingly higher heels, in the privacy of your own home.  Practice walking up and down stairs, on hard and soft surfaces, so that when you head out, you will have mastered your heels, not the other way around.

Get something fun and/or unique!  Everyone has boring, sensible shoes, so why not go for something that is different, calling attention to your gams or that late-season pedi?  These combo peep-toe-maryjane-platform-stilettos instantly turn up the Wow factor. and scream, 'Look at me!'

Baci a tutti!
