There’s just something fabulous about the cooler weather arriving and bringing back out my fall shoes and boots! (And sweaters and tights!)
Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your whole life (:
Maybe it the comfort of being snuggly with my cool textured tights and my comfy Target boots. Maybe it’s the layers that make me a little less self-conscious of my ‘already looks like I may have layers on’ kind of body. (: (That I’m fine with, by the way! It is what it is!) Maybe it’s the cool nights that make sleeping wonderful and dreams of brilliant colors come true on trees. It’s Fall and, for this girlfriend, it’s fabulous. (And, yes. I am in total denial of what season follows Fall!)
Back to the shoes … I did a little research to see the new 2011 Fashions and what new Fall shoes and boots I should check out on my next visit to DSW, Macy’s or online. Thought you might want to know to (hence this sharing of girlfriend advice – on shoes and boots!) so here are some shoes and boots that fit the trends I’ve researched online. (Girlfriends don’t let girlfriends wear bad boots!)
KNEE-HIGHS – Love em. Like the Michael Antonio Bailey Knee-High Boot in the photo above. A slouchy upper offers nonchalant sex appeal to Michael Antonio’s Bailey knee-high boot. A stacked platform lends stability to the 4.75-inch heel, while a side zipper offers easy dressing. Sorry, I want these – even if I couldn’t walk in them! (Available in tan, gray and black.)
SUEDE BOOTS – like these: Aerosoles Acappella Taupe Suede ankle boots. This stylish women’s high-heel boot is crafted with a supple suede upper featuring a foldover cuff adorned with a feminine bow detail; a side zipper allows easy on/off. A smooth fabric lining combines with a faux suede-covered, cushioned footbed for all-day comfort. Mmmm suede (:
BUCKLES are IN – Check out the Calvin Klein Felisha Ankle Boots (in black) in the photo above. Its smooth nappa or glossy mosaic leather upper, rounded toe, and towering heel create a look that’s sleek enough for the office and saucy enough for a night on the town. A cushioned insole offers comfort, while its rubber sole provides traction and a bold finish to the look.
PATENT LEATHER -
Chinese Laundry Join Up Patent Leather platform heels actually fit three different Fall Fashion 2011 Trends: Patent Leather, Platform and a buckle. You’ll be sporting some sass with them too. Just saying!
CHUNKY HEELS - Like the ones in the photo above (brown pumps). Love these by Steve Madden – Pummp Platforms. Come in brown or black leather. Definitely a ‘look out world, here I come!’ statement shoe!
SSSSSSERIOUSLY … SNAKE - This reptile (even though faux) is in style. Check out these
Chinese Laundry Wink Wink Snake pumps.This fun, flirty pump sky-high heel and classic silhouette takes a walk on the wild side with its leather covered snake skin. You will be sure to turn heads whether you are wearing them with a pair of slacks to the office or out at night with your favorite cocktail dress.
SOCKS – Love these Boot Liner Socks! (Nothing bulky to make boots tighter!) But socks and shoes or socks and boots seems to be back in fashion! Baabaazuzu Boot Liner Neutral is designed to slip over your socks and turns any pair of boots into something extraordinary. A stretchy micro fleece stirrup is topped with a vintage sweater cuff that the brand upcycles to make this beautiful creation.
So the Fall Fashion and shoe trends we’re seeing/reading about for Fall 2011 are: Knee-high boots, suede shoes and boots, lots of buckles, patent leather, chunky heels, snakeskin shoes and socks with your boots or shoes.
