Once a year, I like to treat myself to one big luxury item and what better time to splurge on myself than when celebrating my quarter-century milestone this past Monday? One year, I bought the Gucci Soho Shoulder Bag, another year I bought my first pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps and last year, you all helped me decide between the Saint Laurent Monogram Satchel and the Chanel Wallet on Chain bag.

This past weekend, NYC felt like summer for one glorious day. Everyone was wearing sandals and shorts, and it quickly got me thinking about how I really can’t wait for real summer weather. (It might also have to do with the fact that this weekend, I celebrated my 25th birthday by treating myself to an all-white pair of Valentino Rockstuds.)

As the temperature rises, there are plenty of cookouts, pool parties and other casual, outdoor activities to look forward to.

New collections are stocked up in stores, and that’s given us time to shop around and notice some emerging patterns. We already made note of some of spring’s biggest trends, but if you think that’s all the footwear market has to offer, think again.

Bag Deals

Well, we’ve made it. Here’s to another week marked off our calendar and another fun-filled weekend to look forward to. While the sales were scarce this week, we searched the internet high and low to bring you the best-priced bags we could find.

Steve Madden Sassey Two-Piece Fringe Sandals $129 via Macy's 

Aquazzura Wild Thing Sandals $785 via ShopBop

Footwear trends come and go, and so far, Spring 2016 has brought along plenty of its own. In the upcoming months, we’re eagerly awaiting lace-up sandal, low, chunky heels and spring fringe. And while we would love to put everything on the plastic and act like the bill isn’t coming, sometimes practicality is required.

Jimmy Choo

As the temperature rises, sandals are going to be our go-to shoe of choice. We’re just a few weeks away from the official start of sandal season, and that means it’s time to start stocking up on some of this season’s hottest designs, as well as time to make an appointment with our local manicurist for a mani-pedi.


Today marks the first of many Shoe Guides to come, and we couldn’t think of a better place to start than Valentino‘s signature Rockstud. Like the Ultimate Bag Guides you know and love, our Shoe Guide follows a similar format; below, we’ll highlight important buying information like pricing, fit and style comparisons.

Christian Louboutin

By now, we all know the name and we can spot a signature red bottom a mile away, and deservedly so–Christian Louboutin shoes are held in high regard in the luxury footwear market. The brand has millions of diehard fans who return again and again, and any Louboutin convert can tell you why they love the signature shoes.

It’s that time of year when tax refunds start showing up for the early birds out there, and we know the feeing all too well of money burning a hole in our pockets. If you’re lucky enough, your extra funds may even cover some of this season’s most expensive footwear (and if they covers more than that, we need to start going to your accountant).
