Monticello ‘Anna’ Lavender Suede High Heel Sandals

monticello

Monticello Shoes sent me these lovely ‘Anna‘ sandals (great name, right?!), and I was smitten from the moment I felt the smooth, sumptuous leather and observed the high quality and attention to detail that went into these shoes, handmade in Brazil.   They are flawless!  The embedded flowers on the t-strap are a nice feminine touch, and the MS Signature is carved beautifully into the sole.  If you shy away from heels because they hurt, take comfort in the fact that all Monticello heels feature MS Signature comfort padding, so you can wear these 4-inch heels all night long.  Shoenistas, I know you’ll love the fact that these sandals cost $165.95 – a lower cost than mainstream designer shoes.

I have worn the Anna sandals for a night out and not only did they receive compliments left and right, they were pretty comfortable.  Plus, lavender is one of the prettiest hues to wear in the spring!  All Monticello shoes are handmade in Brazil from the finest materials in the world.  Get your own pair of Monticello Shoes today!

On Trend With Swedish Clogs From CapeClogs.com

If you’ve been following the spring 2010 shoe trends, you are well aware that clogs top the list of this season’s must-have looks.  As a lover of girly, feminine high heels and shoes, I can’t say that this trend immediately made me jump with joy.  But Cape Clogs was kind enough to send me three pairs of clogs to try out, and I have to say that overall, I am pretty impressed.  Each pair of Cape Clogs is handmade, giving each one its own individuality and uniqueness, and ensuring the highest quality.  I noted that the clogs are both light and comfortable, and I love the candy apple red patent, and fun zebra print!  I appreciate the adjustable heel strap on my red clogs for keeping the shoes in place when I’m walking around town.

If you still need some convincing to give clogs a chance this season, just take these few things into consideration: clogs improve posture, provide lower-back support, and the wood soles do not compress under weight like a regular shoe. I’m starting to warm up to the clogs trend, and I’m even considering investing in these high heeled Jeffrey Campbell Karl Beige Fabricclogs (pictured below), which speak to my girly side!

Clogs Are Hot This Spring..Will You Wear Them?

Clogs & Flowers

Clogs & Flowers by ShoeSmitten featuring Michael Kors jackets

Who would have dreamed that clogs would come back into fashion?  This spring, clogs are one of the top must-have styles of shoes.  Luckily, this season’s clogs are anything but clunky and boring.  Invest in a few pairs that speak to your personal style.  For me, that means a bit of height, a modern twist and some feminine charm.  For the trendiest look, wear clogs with knee-high-or-above socks and shorts or pleated skirts.  Here are some top picks for stylish clogs, all available at Endless.com:
