September Shoe Shopping Line-Up "Riding Boots & Rain Boots"

 To continue my September Shoe Shopping Line-Up, I’ve chosen two staple shoes that every fashionista should have in the fall, the “Riding Boot” and the “Rain Boot”. I love a good pair of rinding boots and here are some great stylish selections (my fave, the Prince Classic at TopShop). 

For the rain boots I was thinking color and style, I’ve even selected rain boots with the style of a riding boot (best of both worlds). I think I’ll take a pair of the Hunter Festival Tall Wellington boots and the Valentino Studded boots.
What do you think, what pair are you most likely to buy?

Gucci Details

  Exactly the WOW factor I was waiting for, Gucci has delivered a stunning Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. It has the glitz, the glamour, and the true Gucci elegance that it's known for. I'm a sucker for detail so the the tailoring of the jackets and pants made me very happy, right down to the buttons on the bottoms of the pants, to the chains on the jackets . I loved the architecture structured dresses as well, but I must say that the jackets are my fav, I can just them being worn in so many ways with so many other great pieces.

Trend Report "Calf Hair"

Reporting the trend of calf hair (or cow hair), and I must say... I love it. Seeing calf hair done in bright colors & leopard prints really get me going. The texture stands out & at the same time its not overwhelming. The perfect pair of calf hair heels (or flats) would make a great outfit look a bit more expensive. Case & Point, check out some of these looks, and always get inspired. Enjoy!

September Shoe Shopping Line-Up "Heeled Loafers & Flats"


You know its Fall when the loafers start showing up in the stores, and with that being said...continuing with my September Shoe Shopping Line-Up clearly I've chosen "heeled loafers". The loafer is a classic shoe, one that is sure to show up in your Fall & work wardrobe (depending on where you work) many of times. Clearly the style of the loafer has come a long way. Hopefully these selections will inspire you to go out and grab a fab pair. 

As for the other selection I choose "flats", for the fashionista looking for style & comfort. These selections are defiantly in for this Fall season.

Prabal Gurung RTW Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

Here are some of my favorites from Prabal Gurung Ready To Wear SS 2012 Collection. So far I've been seeing a lot of blue on the runway (and I'll post those later) but it was refreshing to see this radiant purple. All of the pieces are very wearable. I am in love with this entire collection.

"Gem Shoes" or should I say "Gem Hues"


Continuing my September Shoe Shopping Line-Up, “Gem Shoes”  or should I say “Gem Hues” came to mind.  As we all know, gem toned colors are perfect for the Fall (I my self prefer them in suede or chiffon). I put together some selections of gem toned shoes,  not only to inspire some color in the wardrobe, but to also give you an idea of what these precious gems will bring into your life.
So while shopping for your September shoe selections, make sure you have your eyes set on some “fab-hue-lust” gems, rather it be Sapphire, Topaz, Emerald, Ruby, or Amethyst...whatever, they’re all showing up in Fall trends this season so a good gem should’t be too hard or find. 


*P.S. You should really see the B Makowsky "Vada"shoe in person, the image above doesn't do them justice at all. I really fell in love with these shoes. #PurchaseWorthy

Get A Good Shoe Shine



Continuing my September Shoe Shopping Line-Up, I've put together some selections of an up coming fall trend, "Shiny Shoes" rather they be sequined or glitter. Although I haven't join the bandwagon on this one yet, I do however like the Wild Pair Sinister shoes in this post (I might purchase these). 

I can't help but see this trend going completely overboard in the wrong hands (or on the wrong foot). I'd like to know what you other fabulous fashionista's think about this. What do you consider to be a good shoe shine?

September Shoe Shopping Line Up "Leopard"

September is one of the best times of the year for a true fashionista. The month has so much to offer, it keeps us busy with it’s Fashion Night Out, and those gigantic September Issues of our favorite fashion magazines. It’s kick off month of Fashion Week and it’s the beginning of fall/winter shopping. I like to start my fall shopping off with shoes, (shoes, shoes, shoes) I love them so, it’s something about that new shoe smell that just gets my heart going.
Leopard shoes seem to be a big trend right now, although they have been around forever (funny how fashion just repeats it's self) I love the many ways that this print is combined with a specific style shoe with texture & tone. 


Any-who, I would like to dedicate this post to one of my twitter followers @redsolesredwine who stated "I love leopard, realizing how many leopard items I have while putting my outfit posts for tomorrow! #outfits #leopard"

Check out her leopard red soles in her blog post "Leo Dots Look Book"& check out this leopard shoe shooping line-up.
