What’s in your closet?

NannisWith the fall fashion season just around the corner, it’s time to start taking a shoe inventory. For many, fall is the start of  a new busy season where the light at the end of the tunnel looks a lot like — dare I say it — Christmas. Hopefully, with a thorough assessment of your current shoe status, when fall gets here you’ll be able to hit the ground running, so to speak. Fashion author Samantha Cabrera says there are some “must-haves” styles for any closet regardless of the season, so take a moment to round up any shoes gone astray and head to your closet to give it a once-over. Then ask yourself: Do I have the following shoes in my closet?

Gladiator Sandals for Hayden Panettiere

Hayden PanettiereWe knew gladiator sandals would be hot this summer, but Hayden Panettiere is making them sizzle. The Heroes star was recently seen wearing a pair of black gladiators during a guest appearance on David Letterman’s Late Show where she was promoting her new movie, “I Love You, Beth Copper.” Her (seriously) little black dress may have contributed (slightly) to her overall appearance, but we all know it’s the shoes that complete the package. If you’re looking to perfectly compliment a little black dress of your own, Shoefly has all the answers.

Shoe Retailers Offer More Midpriced Merchandise

Although unusual and outlandish shoes have always been a sign of wealth, the recession has retailers scrambling to offer more affordable footwear options. As Stephanie Rosenbloom recently reported in her New York Times News service article, “Retailers switch how they do business,”* high-end stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks are offering more mid-priced merchandise. Furthermore, in a shocking turn away from his typical mortgage-payment prices, Jimmy Choo recently announced that a pair of his shoes will be available for as little as $55 in H&M stores in November. (I never thought I would write “retail” and “Jimmy Choo” in the same sentence.)

My top picks from the Shoefly Winter Sale, Part II

Welcome back to the Winter Wonderland of shoe shopping deals at Shoefly! Here are a couple more of my top picks from the Shoefly Winter Sale. First up: Claudia by Report. Word on the street is that glad lip gloss could be all the rage this season. Perhaps it’s the nose-diving economic outlook that’s bringing goth into mainstream fashion. Everything looks pretty bleak these days– why not our makeup? Or Maybe the dawn of the Twilight series is bringing fashionistas into the fold of the undead. Regardless of the black lip gloss tipping point, I’m on the lookout for shoes to match. Claudias are a perfect pair to bring together the Victorian undead look I’m going for. Sale price: $50. Regular price: $67. Extra money for YSL lip gloss: $17.

Shoe Advertisers Get Creative

The melting economy has all retailers (and most businesses, for that matter) frantic for ideas to distinguish themselves from the increasingly winnowed pack of competitors.Apres Ski This. Shoe sales certainly haven’t benefitted from nosediving consumer confidence– unless we’re talking about second-hand shoe sales. Those are booming. But designers haven’t stopped designing. Shoe stores are still open. And we’re all still wearing shoes. So how can retailers and designers be sure that you spend your choosy footwear dollars on their brands?

Let Your Shoes (And Your Spirit) Shine

Continuing the theme of songs celebrating mood-lifting shoes, today’s MTV Shoe Music choice is Paul Simon’s “Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes.” “People say she’s crazy,” sings the King of Zydeco pop, “Diamonds on the soles of her shoes, well, that’s one way to lose these walking blues.”
