Say what you want about the Olsen twins, but they have earned every last bit of their fame and success. They are only 23 and have already built a huge empire, including the genius Elizabeth and James clothing line. They have some really fabulous stuff; one of my recent favorites is the Reina Suede Button shoe.

Suede shoes are unbeatable, in my opinion. Feminine and elegant, they have a more refined look than do leather pumps. The Reina shoe uses a super simple concept–little dots–to create a stunning design. I’d wear it to work with a cute dress or on day off with jeans and a sweater.

And isn’t it always the simple designs that are best? Yes, especially in these times.  They are versatile, allowing you to pair them with almost anything in your wardrobe. The Reina Suede Button shoe is no exception.

GoJane.com, a Must-Visit Site

Suede Zipper High Heel Boot ($22.99, www.gojane.com)GoJane.com is an online clothing and accessories retailer that should be part of any budget-conscious fashion lover’s arsenal. The shoes are, by far, my favorite thing at GoJane. If boots are your footwear of choice, let’s just say that you may never want to shop anywhere else again after you see the inventory at GoJane. I’m going to leave it at that and let you be the judge when you check it out. Stud Embellished Suede Finish Boot ($24.99, www.gojane.com)

The site also has some seriously fabulous deals on selected items–I want to say every week, but don’t quote me on that. This week, for example, you can get a long-sleeved V-neck t shirt for $4, some dressy tops in the $6-$14 range and sweater boots that look very similar to Cardy Uggs for $14.99.

So, have a look. This site is really a gem. I heard about it through another blog and have been hooked since.

Fall Boots Have Arrived!!!

'Blondee' Boots ($99.95, Steve Madden)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I always get a bit sad as summer comes to an end (ok, I sound a tad melodramatic–it’s only August 11th). But one of the best things about being close to the beginning of a new season is shopping for new stuff, of course!

Anyone for whom shoe shopping is a science or simply an addiction knows that the end of the summer is the best time to get boots for fall. With the new shipments of fall products starting to hit the stores now, this is the time to snag boots in your size and preferred color. Come September, the only things left are usually in Shaquille O’Neal’s size or bright yellow with polka dots.

So, I said to myself today, “Self, let’s give our readers a peek at what we have to look forward to this fall.” Have a look at what caught my eye so far and keep an eye out for more updates in the weeks to come. The cold is coming but not all hope is lost!

Giuseppe Zanotti Suede Criss Cross Studded Sandals

Suede Crisscross Studded Sandals ($650, Guiseppe Zanotti)

Today, I stopped by Intermix, which I think is the store that can make pretty much anyone look like a star. When I got home, I went on the Intermix website to have a second look at a couple of things that caught my attention, which is when I saw the Guiseppe Zanotti Suede Criss Cross Studded Sandals.

Wow. I thought that his Cage Sandals (the background of my Twitter page) could not be outdone. Ha! The man clearly does not run out of imagination.

This shoe has everything. The sexy criss-crossing straps, the stunning combination of black suede and gold hardware. I’m so happy to see that accessories with metallic accents seem to be here to stay. In fact, fall forecasters are saying hardware is one of the top trends for next season. Then, again, it’s hard to not be in style when you’re wearing Giuseppe Zanotti.

Carmona Ring Callerina Yellow Nubuck Shoe ($49.99, Timberland)

I, for one, always pictured beige urban boots whenever I’d hear the name Timberland. But as I was scoping out a new pair of these perfect-for-gross-weather shoes today online, I was pleasantly surprised to also find a fab selection of women’s flats and slip-on shoes.

Dreena Stretch Flat Light Dark Brown Suede ($49.99, Timberland)

Dreena Stretch Flat Light Dark Brown Suede ($49.99, Timberland)

Because this is Timberland we’re talking about, it’s a safe bet to assume that these flats will be comfy and sturdy. In terms of color, the current selection features gorgeous earth tones. Plus, many of the pairs have gone down in price, so this is the perfect opportunity to stock up on shoes for early fall. To see the complete collection, head over to Timberland.com.
