Shoe Lovers: Are You Wearing Your Red Christmas Shoes Today?

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 25, 2010 by The Shoe Expert

Coming Soon: John Galliano Spring 2011 Collection

In honor of Christmas, I am sporting my brand new Shane and Shawn KK red python peep toe pumps from! 🙂

Here are some examples of really red shoes to show some Christmas spirit today!

So whether you’re just going to mom and dad’s house for dinner or going to a glitzy holiday party, you can still arrive in style! This is one of those occasions where you can wear your super high to the sky stilettos if you want to because you won’t be standing in long lines or walking for blocks! Most likely, you’ll walk from your front door to your car, then your car into someone’s home, then do a lot of sitting while eating, drinking, and socializing…unless you’re the one cooking the big meal…in that case, wear your flats while cooking and save your heels until the cooking is done and you’re ready to sit and mingle with your family and other guests!

Happy Holidays, shoe lovers!!!

Keep Your Feet Warm & Dry In This Rain (while still looking cute!)

Posted in Fashion, Health & Wellness, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , on December 23, 2010 by The Shoe Expert

As I was making house calls yesterday in the pouring rain (by choice! I am not asking you to play your violin for me!), it was essential for me to keep dry! I had to decide ahead of time, what am I going to wear to keep my feet warm and dry all day, while stepping in all those puddles??? This is what I came up with, and it worked!

'Snowbunny' Boots by Skechers

The best 3 things about these boots were (1) they’re comfortable enough to wear all day trekking back and forth up steep driveways and up and down stairs, (2) I could fit my orthotics in them, adding to the comfort, and (3) most importantly, they kept my feet warm and dry even in a 3 inch puddle! 

 Of course, an easy choice would be a rain boot. And lately, rain boots have come a long way, baby! Check out these stylish rain boots!

 And then there are the combination rain boots that are more like a cross between a rubber rain boot and a stylish boot, but your feet will definitely stay warm, dry, and happy in them! 🙂

 I just want to show you one more style: ankle rain boots! I must admit I kinda like them! 🙂

It’s so important for the health of your feet to keep them dry in this harsh winter weather to avoid foot odor, foot fungus, and bacterial infections. Who needs to deal with that when we have shopping to do for the holidays??? 🙂

So…would I try them out? Of course!!! I love trying new shoes!!! (and boots and booties and …)

But do YOU like these rain shoes and boots? Do you think they’re cute? Do you think you can still look cute or sexy while keeping warm and dry in the rain?

Getting Ready for Rain!

Posted in Fashion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2010 by The Shoe Expert

Fall is here!!!

 (although in Southern California we are still in triple digit temperatures…) Yes, it was over 100 degrees today…but that’s not true for the rest of the country, and it’s not going to last for long! So before we start thinking about the holidays (you know they’re right around the corner!), let’s get ready for the fall season and the rain that comes with it.

I’ve been checking out all of this fall’s boots for months now, and there is no shortage of them! From peep toe ankle booties to stiletto over the knee boots, I have to admit that I love them all!!! As a shoe lover, boots are just a no-brainer! Even rain boots are getting more and more fashionable, high end, and even sexy. Yes, I said it! I’ve seen a few that are very hot! 🙂
