Great Holiday Party Shoes!

Martinez Valero Women’s Carla Feather Ornamented Sandal,Green Peacock

Pair these adorable and unique shoes with a satin Black or Christmas Forest Green for a great holiday party outfit!  I’m thinking you could work just about any color dress in those feathers in the purse or dress.  I personally would do a black satin dress and a touch of simple gold or black jewelery and purse. The shoes should be wow-point of your ensemble so black I think is best. Silver jewelery would look fine too as they are a blue-ish color but Gold and Black look great together around holiday season.

I love these shoes.

Happy Holidays and Stay Sassy!

As the seasons change and I re-organize my closet of shoes and other nonsense I rarely wear- I pull out the boots for fall and winter.  What typically defines a boot is “footwear that covers the whole foot and lower leg” but that’s now false (silly Webster) as more recently, boots are made with holes in them which ads a whole new side of sexy to the footwear.

Nevertheless, boots come in all shapes, sizes, and styles.  Some boots are made for walking and others are definitely not (well, long distances at least). This post looks at the variations of this so-called “boot” form of footwear and picks out some of my favorites from each category. I’ve done my research and to my knowledge all of the boots you can find on for cheaper than anywhere else, Zappos, etc….Also, use this link to receive free shipping and free returns on every order through!


The Lia Heel Boot by Marciano (above) mix soft grey suede mixed with a textured blue and gold leather center detail. Features cut outs the toe and at the sides and brings laces along the side zipper and double buckles about two cut outs. 4 ½ inch heel and ½ inch platform.  Even cuter on…

Knockoff or Not?: Madden & Louboutin

Steve Madden comes out with a pump very similar in design to the Dillian Pump, a very popular Spring 2009 collaboration with Christian Louboutin and Phillip Lim. Hot or Neon pink is another big trend for Fall 2009 which is also incorporated into this hot selling pair of Madden hells called “Fiestaa”

Fiesstaa - Fuchsia Suedevs.christian-louboutin-dillian-ruffled-pumps-orange

Steve Madden’s “Fiestaa”                  Louboutin’s “Dillian Flower”

Copy-cat, bad knock off, or am I just seeing things? It is arguable.

Stay Sassy,

I’m a flower freak, there…I said it.


Kelsi Dagger

4 3/4 ” of an inch of pure flirt. I’ve talked about shoes with a floral theme before and I guess I’m starting to learn something about myself: I’m a total flower freak, I love them. Something about putting a flower on a stiletto just says, “I’m a princess.” I think that’s why. Or, perhaps it is because I get a little antsy when I haven’t received any flowers from a man lately?…hmmm. (hint, hint) Either way. I love, love, love the flower situation with these Kelsi Dagger shoes. You can get get them from “>, and don’t worry because you get free second day shipping AND free returns (in the US) if they don’t quite fit like you hoped they would.

Stay Sassy,


Heels that could kick some ass. . .


I once went to this self defence seminar in college where the instructor told the women in the room that if we were ever put into a situation where we needed to defend ourselves- one of our best weapons can potentially be our awesome footwear.  He’s right.  They can kick ass in more ways then one. Rar.

The step by step plan for using your heels as weapons is this:

Step 1: Spray the bastard with mase or perfume or anything that they might think is mase to potentially distract them.


Step 2: Remove your beautiful footwear.  (Strappy ones are harder so hopefully you’ve sprayed a lot of mase)


Step 3: Hit the bastard with your shoes relentlessly until you’ve had enough or he’s had enough- this depends on how pissed you are usually. (Focus on using the pointy part of your heel, this may be used to jab into their eyes of groin area in a stabbing manner).

Step 4: Strike a wonder woman pose and then run like hell (This is significantly easier when you don’t have heels on; hence, the beauty of step 2).


Now, here are some shoes for the upcoming season that I think could kick some serious asault ass.

Balenciaga, Fall ’09 awesomeness:


As always, architecturally awesome!

BCBG Max Azria Fall ’09:


Yves Saint Laurent:


Love the shoes, but lets just hope you’re never in the position to have to use ’em to defend yourself, k? Anyone who tries to mess will definately get a stiletto kick to the jollies that’s for sure!

Stay Sassy,

Fall 2009

Looking forward to Fall 09 footwear.  Can’t wait to rock a stripper-librarian look I’ll get pairing some patterned socks and platform stilettos from Marni’s collection.


Or how about this distrinct looking heel by Louis Vuitton? Some of the shoes looked quite S&M with an architectural twist, but I thought a couple were pretty classy- I’m a fan, until I break my ankle (knock on wood).imageaxd3imageaxd4imageaxd5imageaxd6

Speaking of wood….(oh, so many jokes I could make here, sigh:::), check out the stilts Galliano’s got going on for Fall ’09.


Apparently, his inspiration came from Russian-Balkna Forklore….


But I think it came from a lot more places that than…
