Fashion Fix: Shoes, Shoes and more Shoes!

November 18, 2010

After a discussion amongst some friends and I in my English Lit class on shoes, it only made sense to focus on the one accessory that all women LOVE!  Of course you all know about my obsession from a previous post. In our discussion, the girls and I talked about what our “dream shoe” was. Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin were both mentioned… of course. I don’t know of a single woman who would disagree with me when I say that they are the epitome of stunning, luxury shoes.  If there is, please let me know.

For this fashion fix, I’ve put together some of the Spring/Summer 2011 hottest shoe trends that have graced the runways in New York, Milan, and Paris. Hope you enjoy!

I’m not sure if I ever mentioned this but a few months ago, I handed over the color palette reins to our resident palette queen (and former intern), Laura. I absolutely ADORE her latest combination. It’s just so rich, elegant and deliciously decadent… don’t you think?

This week’s inspiration board captures the fun and adventure of traveling and combines it with a touch of old-world charm.  Doesn’t this make you want to pack up your bags and fly to a faraway place?  I know I do!
