Did you ever see that movie Mad Love with Drew Barrymore? I’m pretty sure it was my favorite movie through high school. Drew Barrymore’s character Casey falls in love with Chris O’Donnell (and how could you not?!) and he helps rescue her from a mental hospital and they run away together. Okay, granted the storyline is pretty cheesy, but the music and eye-candy was all I needed to get hooked on this movie in high school. Speaking of Mad Love, have you seen these new L.A.M.B. heels from heels.com? If I don’t get these beauties I may need to be rescued from the mental hospital myself! As long as Chris O’Donnell abducts me from said hospital with these Quiana heels in hand, no one will get hurt. The geometric cutouts, shiny, smooth leather, and four inch heel will have you Mad-ly in love too.

But no one is snoring, we are trying to solve a big fashion dilemma, what to wear to work when it’s raining! While some places of business may be perfectly appropriate for those famed Hunter wellies, many are not and mine happens to be one of the many. So what should you wear when the ground is wet so your job doesn’t leave you high and dry? First of all, avoid sensitive materials like suede, satin, and untreated leathers. Also stay away from open toed and strappy styles to keep those tootsies from getting wet. So what are you left with? Patent leather of course! Patent leather is great for a night out, but in the right style it can also be the perfectly appropriate style for trekking through those wet sidewalks to work. Try these patent leather styles on for size and you’ll be dry and fashionable on rainy days:
Or just throw your favorite work heels in your bag and wear these great foldable patent flats in the rain and wear your stylin’ heels in the office!

As much as most are people are longing for the cool fall months, summer just isn’t ready to leave yet and neither are summer styles. With heat breaking record temperatures, it is hard to think about wearing anything but light, breezy dresses and minimal sandals. Even peep toe pumps are too hot for these temps lately! In the interest of making the most of the last few weeks of summery heat, try these darling dresses and skimpy sandals on for size and cruise into fall feeling more fashionable than ever:
To keep from overheating, pair a strappy sandal with a lightweight dress to get your party perfect look. I love how the rosette detail on the sandal mimics the ruffled rosette neckline of the dress!

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattering, then some celebs have been busy flattering themselves in their own line of heels! A number of celebs have launched shoe lines, including Paris Hilton, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Fergie, Jessica Simpson and more. The real question is which of these celeb designers is actually wearing their stiletto styles? It is well known that Jessica Simpson is always seen in her line of heels, clothing and accessories, but are others? These stars might wear Prada, but they have no shame in sporting their own brand of stilettos:
Gwen Stefani in L.A.M.B.
Jessica Simpson in Jessica Simpson Heels
Fergie in Fergie
What other celebs have you seen branding themselves in their own brands?
There’s no better way to grab attention than a pair of sparkly heels. Well, maybe falling flat on your face in said heels will also grab attention, but let’s try to avoid that, k? Silver shoes have become as basic as black in every woman’s closet. Pair them with a pretty party dress, spruce up a simple pair of jeans, or pep up your professional look with a fabulous pewter heel. Just because you don’t have some bling on your ring (finger) doesn’t mean you can’t have it on your feet!

Who says you have to pack away your beautiful boots until fall? Well, don’t go running around in your furry UGG’s and a miniskirt, but with a little thought, boots can be the perfect summer accessory. Take for instance this recent look from Jennifer Aniston at LAX. Summery white jeans and suede knee-high boots are the perfect complement to light, airy tops for summer. Come fall, throw on a jacket and a scarf and you’re set for any occasion.
Try these boots on for size with your white jeans for a great look similar to Jennifer Aniston’s:
Or try a shorter, open-toed bootie if these styles are a little too hot for your summer look:
