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.
Speaking of shaking your groove thang, Sarah Jessica Parker showed up to the Late Show With David Letterman wearing a sophisticated black strapless jumpsuit. She kept her accessories simple in order to draw more attention to the great jumpsuit. Smart! Prior to her wardrobe change, she arrived in casual jeans and sexy-as-hell Pedro Garcia suede slingbacks that I've been eyeing for a while. And it wouldn't be SJP unless she did something a little off kilter, like folding only one of her jean legs!
This Valentine's Day, be a sweetheart. Sweetheart shapes, whether on shoes, tops, or dresses, are the perfect way to be subtly suggestive: They call to mind the romantic and feminine heart shape, putting everyone subconsciously in the mood.
John Galliano knew what he was doing when he sent a magenta sweetheart dress down the Spring '08 Christian Dior runway along with lots of lingerie-inspired looks . . .
We all love a Fab Pedro Garcia shoe, and I think this Pedro Garcia Noa pump ($115, originally $375) is the perfect glittery party shoe. Best of all, it's the type that can be worn all year round!

Cleavage is sexy — no doubt. But then there's that other kind of cleavage, the not so obvious toe cleavage. If I do say so myself, I have a nice pair of feet, but I don't look to them to seduce...that is, unless I was wearing a pair of plunging shoes. The V is not reserved for necks anymore, the V has gone south. Whether the V leads to extreme or demure cleavage of the toe, these shoes are dramatic, attention-grabbing and, no doubt, sexy.
I like wedges, and I definitely like suede shoes, but if you put the two together and they make this Pedro Garcia Karen Suede Wedge, $425, I just can't say I'm a fan. The product reminds me of an expensive version of the orthopedic shoe I might see my grandmother shuffling around in (no offense granny!).
