Patently Heeled

Who doesn’t remember that special pair of patent leather Mary Janes that were reserved for holidays? While the notion of special occasion shoes still exists, patent leather doesn’t have to be relegated to the back of the closet until the next company holiday party.

Whether it’s featured on heels, flats, a clutch or an oversize handbag, patent leather can add a bit of sheen to any outfit or occasion. The BCBGirls Lastin heel in black patent can easily take you from the boardroom to the bar, while the oh...DEER! Ferris flat in coral or black patent can add some personality to your typical weekend wear.

Add a Shiraleah envelope clutch in gray or cobalt to your ensemble for an additional hint of shimmer.

In Love and Soles,

Fierce Footwear

Animal prints are back! Well, they never really went away, but they’ve certainly been modernized.

Now is the time to update your out-of-date cheetah print with new shoes and accessories featuring snakeskin, crocodile and leopard prints. The new patterns feature non-traditional elements like patent leather, rosettes and unusual color schemes.

Try one of these French Sole Sloop flats, available in black and white snake, cognac, and green croco.

Combine two trends with Arturo Chiang's Cilah flat in brown snake, featuring a brown grosgrain ribbon bow.

If you're feeling particularly adventurous, slip on Poetic Licence's Tea Party kitten heel in green leopard, with patent leather and a bright red rosette.

Solefully yours,
