Stepping Into Spring

Spring has officially sprung! Don't believe me, ask my allergies. I'm sneezing up a storm over here! But with the small negatives come tons of positives- warm weather, longer days, shorter skirts... and fun floral shoes!! Between sneezes I rounded up some of my all time favorite shoes that remind me of my favorite time of year. Hope you like them! These Sophia Webster shoes are the newest of my perfectly Spring-y shoes. The butterfly detailing on the back is so amazingly dreamy. I also love the oil slick patient leather on the toe piece. Perfect perfect perfect! I love the floral print on these Givenchy […] Read More

The Shoe Girl Loves Ruby Stella!

I am so fortunate to be surrounded by some pretty talented and amazing friends in my life, and sometimes I think I take that for granted. I think I'd like to do some posts about just how awesome my friends are, starting with these two. So excuse me while I humble brag about my rad girlfriends. These two babes, my friends Ruby and Stella are also two of my favorite jewelry designers! I love their stuff and I figured you would too. The girls, like me, are following in their father's footsteps (a seasoned professional jeweler with over 45 years of experience) but blazing their […] Read More

The Designer Wedding Shoes I DIDN’T Choose… And A Giveaway!

  Someone via Twitter suggested that I write this post and I just loved the idea! There are so many beautiful shoes out there that I love and that I may have bought if I didn't have the option to design my own. Here are some of my favorites...I may be biased (my company designs and manufactures Badgley Mischka shoes) but in my opinion, Badgley Mischka has some of the most beautiful bridal and special occasion shoes. If you look up "Wedding shoes" some of the most popoular ones come from Badgley Mischka. These first two shoes are great examples of beautiful bridal shoes. The […] Read More

Paging Dr. Hakakha!

This past Sunday, March 8th, was National Women's Day and the perfect day to honor an amazing woman with some of her patients and closest friends, celebrating the third edition of her popular book, Expecting 411. My future cousin-in-law, OB/GYN Dr. Michele Hakakha, MD, is a totally awesome rockstar doctor who just happens to have delivered the babies of some pretty famous (and beautiful!) moms. I got to meet some of them and we all bonded through our love of Michele. She is truly an incredible soul. And a total babe!  It was a great party and I got to hear some really great stories about motherhood […] Read More

The Perfect Wedding Shoes…

It's hard enough to find the perfect shoes for your wedding. You know... the biggest day of your life? But could you imagine trying to design them!? It sounds (and is!) amazing and fun, but it's also super intimidating. You know me as The Shoe Girl, my friends and family know me as a shoe obsessed girl, so the first thing people ask me isn't "what does your dress look like?" it's "OMG what SHOES are you going to wear!?" Sure, I could just buy a super fabulous pair but that would be too easy. Plus I feel like since I have the ability to […] Read More
