|Imelda Marcos Shoe Collection|
Call me the Imelda Marcos of America or maybe I have been tracing my Filipino roots. She was the former first lady of the Philippines that owned over 2,500 pair of shoes. I don't quite own that many, but I do have a lot. They say diamonds are a girl's best friend. How about Louboutin, Gucci, Giuseppe and Steve Madden? Shoes will make or break an outfit. That brings us to Fall 2012 Shoes.
Look 1- Wedge Sneakers; Chic has finally met athletics. You heard wedge heels, but how about pairing a wedge and sneaker together. These fly kicks will be the talk of the town. Think of it has a boxing shoe with an edge. My wedge sneakers have a little twist to them, Spikes and a 3" wedge. You can pair them up with shorts, legging, a dress, a skirt and jeans. I purchased these from Lola Shoetique, for $39. Bakers Shoes, also has them for $69.
|Isabel Marant $298|
|Steve Madden $149|
Look 2- Peep-toe Spiked Heels; Finally the peep-toe has met its match (I think I might have a little thing for spikes). These open toe shoes with that punk rock look. These stilettos are to die for. They will quickly take you from work to play. The heel is 5" with a 1" platform. They are not Louboution, but they're pretty close. I purchased these from Steve Madden, (Andiie) on sale for $49 (they are now on sale for, $89.98). Madonna has a similar shoe from her Truth or Dare collection on sale for, $99.96.
|Christian Louboution $1,395|

Look 3- Over the Knee Boots; I have always been a little scared of buying boots that go over the knee, because they never fit. I have big calves and boots don't usually go past my ankles. About a year ago Steve Madden came out with an over the knee boots, that had an elastic band. I thought I was in heaven. I search high and low for a boot that fit. The heel is 5" with a 1" platform. Steve Madden no longer carries them, but Lola Shoetique has them for, $55.
Look 4- Wedge Boots; These wedge boots sit on a 1" platform. They have a zip on the side and an extra buckle that gives you move room. These wedge boots go up right at the knee. I found these at Forever 21 for $23.99. Forever 21 has similar wedge boots for, $26.50.
