Perfect Spring Sandal

Its a beautiful day in NYC and I'm finally getting to wear my new Alexander Wang sandals!! They've been in my closet for more than a month now and I'm super excited to have them on. In the short time they've been on my feet I know I bought then for all the right reasons. At less than 4 inches they are the perfect height for all day wear an this is the silhouette I adore in a sandal. From a recent post you know the straight band across the toes and an ankle strap are very near to my heart!! It's going to be a great day...

Sad sad day in shoe land...

Could not wait to get over to Saks after work today to try on a beautiful pair of neon peep toe pumps! I was ├╝ber excited to play in all four colors pink, blue, yellow, and green even though I was leaning towards yellow or green. My roommate of impeccable taste who is prob the only person I can shop with even joined me for the event.
We got arrived headed directly for the Prada table and asked for all four size 40 bc from on the online reviews I already knew they ran small and in Prada I'm usually a 39 1/2. The sales person came back with every color in my size except the green which during the wait I had already somewhat decided was my favorite. After trying on the other 3 colors I was sure the green was the way I wanted to go. So I left instead empty handed resolved to head home and order both green and yellow online to play with at home in my closet. Sometimes though we just have to except when things just aren't meant to be! I am at home now and regrettably the green aren't available online. Sad sad day!!
Nonetheless I've come to the conclusion that neon orange would really have been perfect and that I am more than anything in love with the silhouette; the gorgeous lines, platform, and heel...

The Ankle Strap

If I've never said it before the ankle strap is one of my absolutely favorite features both personally and in my designs.
Many of the shoes in my collection have ankle strap bc Its a silhouette that works for me very well. Because I am a big legged gal I think an ankle strap accentuates nicely the narrowness of my ankle. I also find it extremely sexy which is why I also sketch the detail often in my work.

Can we talk about it?: designer trainers

There's a def a sport trend going on right now but how do we feel about the true trainer from designers like Chanel and Alexander Wang?

White Hot

I usually do not care for white shoes but I'll take these wrapped in a pretty red bow!

Its getting warmer out and I've got two things on my mind! The first, opening up my footwear and the second getting my toesies ready for sandal season!

You know I love heels but I am surely developing a great appreciation for cutesy ballet flats and my favorite place to shop for them has become Zara! I just can't bring myself to spend 400 bucks or more on Lanvin flats or those super cute Chloe ballets with elastic straps I've been eyeing for two seasons because they tear up so easily if they're really low profile but l can and I will spend $89.99 or less on ultra adorable flats like these blush leather ones with gold stud work. And yes I said leather!! Leather upper and leather lining which makes them breathable, soft, and nicer to your feet.
Speaking of foot health when is the last time, if ever, that you visited a podiatrist?? I took my first trip last week and couldn't be happier. Since I'm in get ready for summer mode I recently made the mistake of using an over the counter callus and corn remove. Embarrassing to say? Yes. We all want beautiful feet all the time but what can I say it happens especially walking around in the city in my high heels. However, Readers, heed MY WARNING: DO NOT GO THIS ROUTE! Those over the counter remedies are not the way to go. They contain acid and WILL ruin your feet more than you can imagine. I thought I had scared myself for life until a co-worker who recently injured her foot recommended I have her podiatrist look at it! I made an appointment for the very next day and readers I tell you it might be the best move I've made in awhile!  One, they give a way better pedicure than your favorite mani/pedi spot-- if only I could an iPad and hot stone foot massage like my fav place TenOverTen-- because the podiatrist of course has their hands on the good goods, medical grade tools. Two, in addition to an amazing pedi situation you can also have a chemical peel done.  If you're wondering why my feet are peeling in this picture it's not because I've been basking in the sun on some gloriously beach, even though i wish i had been, it's because I had the chemical peel done on my feet during my visit to Dr. Hillary Brenner. After my pedicure it took five minutes or so and cost me about $60. I love it! It totally rectified the damage I'd done with the at-home Dr. Scholls pads and my feet are getting softer than they have been in a very long time. If you haven't ever been like myself, you must!!

Let me know in the comments section how you prepare for summer and be sure to leave some product and shopping tips for other readers.
