Designer Spotlight: Arturo Chiang

Arturo Chiang is a hands-on designer who creates timeless shoes with a modern twist at an affordable price. Chiang previously worked under the famed Christian Lacroix and served as a senior designer at Nine West.

As Chiang says, "The woman who wears my designs is sophisticated and follows fashion, but is not led by the trends."

Some of Chiang's designs include the Tamara in Red Wine and the Pilar in Black Patent, all available at Peria.

Lace, Bows, Rosettes, Oh My!

Get dolled up with lady-like detailing this season by adding accessories adorned with bows, lace or rosettes.

While you don't want to overload on too many sweet accents, adding a pair of Poetic Licence's Fresh Bloom flats in Black Patent can soften any look.

In Love and Soles,

Boost Your Intake of Vitamin C

It's time to add some Vitamin C back into your life! The hot colors of the season are of the citrus variety - think lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit.

Brighten your mood (and outfit) by adding a colorful pair of Sam Edelman's Clement flats in Lime, Mustard or Taupe. If you're feeling particularly punchy, try French Sole's Smoke flat in Lime, BCBGirls' Warren in Watermelon or Hollywould's Vivienne sandal in Lemon.

If you'd like to brighten up your accessories, add a bangle from Elizabeth Brady or one of the Nahui Ollin candy wrapper clutches in Lime or Orange.

Always sole searching ...

Solefully yours,

For the Love of Shoes!

I'm embarking on a journey to blog about shoes, shoes and more shoes. I hope you'll come along!

Of course, I'll share the occasional detail about the latest accessories and fashion trends I see on and off the runway (and in my store), but I can't hide my obvious affection for fabulous footwear.

Questions, comments or ideas? Drop me a line at periashoesblog@gmail.com or visit http://periashoes.com.

Until then, I'm off to sole search ...
