Desert boots and booties are among the season's best — and I've been craving a pair to start off Fall. So, when I spied these supple suede Pedro Garcia Dorice Booties ($198, originally $495), I thought the search was over. With a walkable low heel and lace-up look I love, I was ready to hit the register, till the pricey tag caught my attention . . .
See the look for less after the jump.
Spring satin isn't just for weddings anymore. With the right cut and color, satin shoes can make major impact for both day and night looks. Personally, I go for brighter hues and fun prints, but blacks and tans also look amazing with funky LBDs. I can totally picture Carrie Bradshaw taking an afternoon stroll in these lusty Christian Louboutin Greissimo Pumps ($633) in Sex and the City 2 — swoon.

At her friend's medical school graduation party, jennyjenny was the pastel darling of the night. In that adorable dress, it would be hard not to steal glances left and right. I love everything from the shoulder detail to the color to the floral print. It's spunky, lighthearted, and oh-so-pretty — just the way a cocktail dress ought to be.
Here's what she's wearing:
Dress: Ali Ro
Bangle: Amrita Singh
Shoes: Pedro Garcia
Congrats to jennyjenny!

One of our favorite styling tricks from the Fall 08 season is matching opaque tights and statement shoes--if you can manage to put these together, the rest of your outfit can be simple and classic. Whether it's a pair of cut-out sandals, covered platforms, or lace-up booties, grab a pair of opaque hosiery to match your favorite shoes for the season and you'll be good to go.
Falling between booties and knee-high boots are mid-calf boots. This middle child used to get harped on for its in-between length and stodgy shape, but look out kids — there's a new boot in town!
The modern mid-calf boot is cut slightly wider around the top to provide much-needed leg room, not to mention making jean tucking a breeze. Take a look-see at Ugly Betty's Becki Newton. Zone in on her amazing Jeffrey Campbell boots; the laid-back style goes perfectly with her light brown dress. The grommet embellishment adds a nice touch to this simple ensemble. She's the perfect example of how a person of petite height — she's only five-foot-two — can pull this off. No fear.
June! Summer! Heat! Yes. To some, June signifies the halfway point of the year. That may be, but it is also one of the best months of the year. Summer is upon us my friends, and that means many fabulous fashion things. For starters, sales are a plenty. Also, skin is an accessory — so don't forget to wear sunscreen. As well, it's time to rekindle your relationship with your hotter-than-hot swimwear. Are you ready to dive in? I am. And so my must haves contain warm-weather shoes, cropped pants, and a fresh pair of shades to keep me looking cool in the heat.
