fallboots14I wish I didn't love boots so much. My wallet would thank me.

However, after ordering two new pairs of fabulous fall boots, I am counting down the days until they can be worn. I am even contemplating bringing them on my upcoming excursion, as the temps will be cooler.

Nothing makes me more excited about the season ahead than boots. I realize I have countless pairs, but each and every one gets lots of love. It's my favorite purchase of the year. Every year.

If you haven't already pre-ordered your fall boots, now is the time. The good ones go fast!

I am typically not drawn to frilly, fringy items.

However, this sandal changed my mind.

Known for its use of bold print and color, MSGM designed some super fun sandals for summer. This fringe canvas sandal features a micro rubber sole, canvas straps with buckle enclosure, Raffia fringe and leather and suede tassels. How fun is this?

Makes me feel like I've escaped to Cape Town. I could use that right about now.

Ever since my friend, Brandi, introduced me to the multiple ways to support fair trade, I have been full in. It's not only a feel good on many levels, it's stylishly fun!

Enter: Sseko Designs®, an ethical fashion brand based in Uganda. In addition to handbags and accessories, they make beautiful leather sandals with interchangeable fabric straps that can be styled in hundreds of ways. And let me tell you how fabulous these hand crafted sandals are! For one, you can change the look of them by swapping straps or adding accessories to suit your mood. More importantly, they are the most comfortable sandals I have ever put on my feet. In fact, I never want to take them off. 

Through Sseko, talented young women of Uganda can earn an income to continue onto university. If that isn't stylish, I don't know what is.

While platform pumps may not be on trend at the moment, I will always love shoes designed by Charlotte Olympia. Every single pair is fabulous.

Recently, I discovered that the ponies are back! Actually, they are called the Dark Horse tasseled suede pumps. I am thrilled, as I love them. Now with the Angry Portia suede and studded leather platform pumps joining the ranks, it's stir-causing time.

Stiletto bootie madness! Both from the one and only Giuseppe Zanotti. 

The red suede zipped boots are pure show stoppers. Imagine walking into a room in these! And the gold plaque calfskin booties with pewter metal heel are genius. Major attitude.

I'm not sure it gets much better than this.
