rockawaybootI am always looking for a shoe that bridges the gap between the transitional seasons — summer and fall, and winter and spring. Last year, it was the KORS Michael Kors Harbor slingback wooden wedge in Cork. I absolutely love this shoe!

When I stumbled upon the Rockaway wedge boot by Jeffrey Campbell, it reminded me of the endless options my Harbor wedge has provided.

Jeffrey Campbell is known for designing spunky shoes. And while I own a couple of pairs myself, I have to admit, most of the styles I see appear to be most appropriate for costume parties. That's what made this shoe worthy of a second glance. 

And worthy of sharing.
CLspringSometimes we need a little spring in our step. You know, something we can grab onto now that will take us many places, no matter the season.

Enter: Christian Louboutin.

While these metallic and pastel leather sandals were designed for resort season, they provide high impact all year long. 

Wear them right now with your black sheath dress to a cocktail party. Or, wear them with jeans, a tee and a long purple cashmere cardigan to lunch with friends. Be sure to pack them for that fabulous escape coming up next month. And then get ready to strut your stuff in the spring wearing these beauties with a tangerine colored dress! Yes!
dollyswarovskiAttending another holiday party this weekend and looking for some last minute inspiration? Start with your feet!

Shoes are the ultimate accessory. Especially when you're wearing a pair like this. Black satin with black Swarovski crystals ... yes!

Who wouldn't want to strut around in the limited edition Charlotte Olympia Dolly Swarovski heels? I love that they are timeless, unlike the majority of the trendy numbers out there at the moment. Not only are they perfect for all of your holiday parties, they are perfect for any day of the year.

Let's be honest, if these stunners are on your feet, it really won't matter what else you're wearing.
Call me obsessed. Here I am contemplating another pair of velvet shoes. One of my favorite shoe designers, Giuseppe Zanotti, has done it again with his 2011 version of the bootie. This time, navy velvet. With an almond shaped toe bed to boot! Seriously stunning, don't you think? They will look phenomenal next to my pretty kitties (which, by the way, the picture does not do them justice).

tessavelvetCOI've been a major fan of Charlotte Olympia shoes since its inception in 2007. Dellal's platforms are recognized all over the world. Her shoes are modern, playful and drool-worthy. And yes, there's the collectibles factor.

With the addition of clutches, tights and berets, you are bound to find a masterpiece of your own.

As for these pretty kitties, I cannot tell you how happy I am to have added these to my shoe wardrobe. And for those who have an affinity for the piano, there's a pair for you, too!
