6 Hot Shoe Trends for Fall 2010!

I was so excited to be able to break out my boots yesterday, it was finally cool enough in L.A. to rock a pair of OTKB's! And today, is a cool 65 degrees and its a bit drizzly out, I LOVE it :) It's such a nice change from the 90-100 degree weather we've been having. There is finally that tinge of Fall feeling in the air :) In the spirit of Fall... here is a lil post I stumbled upon, featured in InStyle Mag!! I love these trends... Enjoy!

Biker Boots

These don't need to be black, as long as they have buckles or other hardware to project a tough attitude. Try them with leggings, skinny jeans or a short full skirt and tights in place of the flat riding version.

Pointy-Toe Heels
Complement this sleek sophisticated style with tailored separates, such as cropped cigarette pants, wide-leg trousers, skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, under a swingy top.
Kiltie Details
Heeled and ballet styles bring a feminine spin to the tasseled men's classic. Play up the dichotomy by combining with a floral dress and boyfriend cardi or skinny cords and a chunky sweater.

Blush Tones

This rosy shade brings brightness to any skin tone. And it's easy to pair with all your closet favorites, from fitted cargos and a blouse to silky pajama pants with a T.

Bright Suede

Select a close-toe model, and instantly perk up neutral office basics. Opt for a more elaborate design (and a nude pedicure), and you're ready for cocktails.

Black Strappy
The LBD of the shoe world, this uber-versatile pick goes with anything (Colors! Patterns! Solids!) and everything (Skirts! Pants! Jeans!). Try a platform for extra comfort.

  19. I love your channel! I was watching your video on your root touch up and you said that the Wella stuff you used was discontinued...I was wondering if you have ever tried "Ion Color Brillance Creme Lightener" from Sally's? It has the Argan oil already mixed in with it.
