8 SHOE TRENDS FOR SPRING

   Etro Spring 2015  Thakoon Spring 2015 Marchesa Spring 2015Proenza Schouler Spring 2015
Tods Spring 2015  Versace Spring 2015   Whether crafted with a more natural look or made of more futuristic technicolor fabric, like the shoes at Alexander Wang, woven cropped up at some of our favorite designers, giving subtle dimension to heels and Spring sandals. 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2015 Fausto Puglisi Spring 2015
I don't know about you.., but any time I can get my hands on a pair of tall shoes, I am a happy girl!  Most gals on the tall side are worried about towering over the fellas when wearing heels.  At 5 6, it feels like I am definitely a tower with 3-4 inch heels on. No worries, if the shoe fits wear it!

This spring:picks include flat forms, block heels, and a large selection of flats.  If you aren't keen on heels you will be happy with flat styles being offered with fancy embellishments such as fringe, gems, feathers etc.
  
A new shoe collection is coming out in February designed by rapper Iggy Azalea.  You can catch a sneak peak of her shoe art in the latest issue of InStyle.  She has partnered with Steve Madden to showcase very loud and fun styles.   I can't wait to see the entire line!  Her design focus is classically retro.  The offerings will include chunky 90's style platforms and heels, as well as mesh style leather that is athletic inspired.  Neoprene, the new go to fabric for fashion will also be part of Iggy's" fancy feat" collection.

In the shoe world, it does seem as if anything goes right now,  pick your favorite style and wear it proudly!   My favorite is probably a stiletto pump. I'd love to hear what your favorite picks are in the comment section below.  Happy shoe shopping!

  6. I am not a huge heel girl since I have terrible balance but I am loving these thicker heels! The second shoe with the black and cream is my favorite! I wear a ton of sun and maxi dresses to work so these would look good with them!

  9. Love the block heel look, but I do think its a hate/love option for some people :) but I fall on the love fence :)

    I just wrote a post for the exact option- Easter shoe styling for Petite ladies, really nice to read it from the other size :)
