Friday Five: 5 Shoes You NEED For Fall

  1. Embellished Boots – studded, glitter, rhinestone, appliques…if it’s on a shoe, you should rock it this season. These Givenchy buckle booties are everything. I mean…how freakin’ badass are they? After debating for an entire year, I finally splurged on them recently and I have zero buyers remorse. Not that I get that often, but you know…I feel good about this purchase 😉 I’ve already got so much use out of them and we’re still in the upper 90 degree temps here in Houston, but I can only imagine the wear they will get this Fall/Winter. I have them packed for NYFW (obvi). P.S. if  you prefer to spend less, I found the most amazing dupe of these boots HERE.
  2. Block Heels – It’s no surprise this is a huge trend after seeing it all over the runway last season. When I saw the gold metallic block loafer heel at the Tommy Hilfiger show last year, I knew there would be a ton of similar styles made. And I love that it’s coming in all sorts of shapes & size from the mini mule sandal & sleek suede booties to the clunky luxe platforms & simple strappy heels. Let’s be real though, the best thing about this trend is the COMFORT and y’all already know…..I’m more than about that life. This pair of blush suede Gucci loafer block heels are definitely on my wish list.
  3. Menswear Inspired Oxfords – I love borrowing from the boys and mixing masculine elements into a feminine look. This season the menswear inspiration is all in the details, so leave it to your shoes to do the talking. I just picked up this pair of Marc Fisher black pointy toe leather oxfords and I’m obsessed. The sleek silhouette & lace up detail adds the perfect sexy touch…and just like any other Marc Fisher shoe, they are beyond comfortable!
  4. Luxe Metallic Loafers – Typically I’m not drawn to metallic shoes because I think they can look cheap at times. I have said this before and I’ll say it again…. I love scoring a good deal on anything in my wardrobe, but shoes & handbags are not one of them (unless high quality vintage).  Which is why I have included this pair of silver metallic gucci loafers in this roundup. Gucci is absolutely crushing it right now, I want it all!!
  5. Thigh High Boots – in past seasons it has been ‘over-the-knee boots’ but now we have moved on to bigger (literally) & better things. You are going to see these everywhere throughout Fall/Winter 2016 and you’ll be wishing you had a pair yourself! I bought the 50/50 Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots two years ago and that was my best purchase of 2014, so I think I’ll trust my instincts again and purchase these suede thigh high boots ASAP.
