Stripes have never been so sexy. These canvas lovelies, which is estimated to retail for around $89.95 and will be available in April, features a bold stacked heel and comes in four colors – blue, brown, cognac and red (which I am loving for 4th of July).

Continuing on with bold color, these 70’s inspired faux leather crossover wedges (it also comes in black patent leather and animal print) are the perfect accent to any summer dress or pump up some jeans.

Geox Fall/Holiday 2011 Footwear Collection

Hello again fellow shoe fanatics, it’s been a truly fun season for me shoe-wise. I’ve discovered new brands and rediscovered old favorites. I’ve told you about my obsession for Geox’s Empire State Building Shoes and keeping my fingers crossed that they bring them back again (even if for a limited time AKA enough time for me to get my hands on a pair). Geox has introduced some very fashionable new shoes this season that I have added to my list of need/want/must have shoes. A quick reminder of Geox’s advanced tech features – “Breathability is at the soul of this brand. Geox’s patented system allows air to come in and out through the outsoles, without letting water in. Micro holes in the shoe’s rubber outsole allow perspiration to vent allowing feet to stay comfortably dry, from the inside out.”

This makes the above two D Masha Boots extremely comfortable. For those of you who suffer from sweaty feet, Geox is a brand you should get acquainted with. Naturally, because these boots are so fabulous, they too caught my attention when I saw them (much like the Empire State Building shoes). I love the combination of the deep chestnut and grey It looks like my feet are wearing armor – some very chic armor. The color combination is so unexpected but fit perfectly with these boots.

Of course if you’re looking for something a bit dressier for this festive season, then the Shiver T-Strap (shown below) is just one of the many styles Geox offers

Available in three very rich hued tones, this classic T-Strap Pump, in mixed fabrication, will surely to highlight your holiday look. And for those who want a more casual look for everyday wear, the following will easily tackle the concrete jungle that is New York City (and anywhere else). I love the sleek black silhouette of the first boot, it’s sexy, tough and chic. The others that follow are even more casual and are perfect for basic running around during the cold winter months

To get your hands on some of these stunning styles, just head to any of the Geox Retail Locations (there are five in NYC alone and three in LA) or visit Nordstroms, Zappos, Planet Shoes, The Tannery or go to I’ll be dreaming about the first two boots.
