SWbootie

Pre-order season is upon us.

This is when I do my fall shoe buying for clients. However, it's also when I pick up a few things for myself.

Hands down, my favorite shoe on earth is the bootie. Comfortable. Functional. And, of course, stylish. Because of the amount of time I spend in them, I can't seem to have enough. So it's nice to add a little punch to my collection from time to time.

This bejeweled version of the most-wanted Bacari bootie by Stuart Weitzman is chic, elegant and loaded with personality. The rounded square toe delivers daytime into evening allure. Wear them with everything from leather skinnies to midi shirt dresses.

Slip it on this summer.

Wearing jeans and floor length dresses and skirts on the daily this summer, due to my vein procedures, leaves me yearning for naked feet. There's no better way to get that look and feel than with a slide or barely there sandal.

Enter: the Bill Blass denim frayed slide.

Casual, fun and sure to go with more than you think, this slide is a must for summer. Wear it to the pool, beach, lacrosse field, outdoor barbeque or just running errands. No doubt you'll hear "cute shoes" over and over again.

Fabulous coming or going!

An inventive take on the 1970s bohemian style, Pierre Hardy introduces the Azur sandal. Crafted from colorful suede with a touch of sailor-esque detail, these sandals are sure to capture attention. And I would venture to say, they'd go with so much in your closet.

I have loved this Marni sandal since it made its first appearance around this time last year. It is simple, modern and looks super comfortable! Italian made with adjustable buckle closure, you can find this style in several neutral color ways.

January may not feel like the time to buy spring sandals, but I give you permission. In fact, this is when I do all my pre-orders for clients. Those special items you've been eyeing, grab them while you can.

Boots are my shoe of choice come October. And October is almost here!

Charlotte Olympia, my shoe designer crush, has given us something groovy to drool over, and wear of course. Meet Millie. She embodies modern glamour. Featuring a broad, sculptural heel and thick platform, this suede beauty is a must this fall. I have to say Stuart Weitzman even did a take on this look (those, too, are fabulous). I'm all over it!
