This year's summer ready-to-wear and resort runways made a lot of fine points on dressing, materials and patterns and steered us in the right direction to enjoy the hot months as true fashionistas.
No less important is footwear and one of the most perpetuating trends of the season is of the flower print, found on almost every shoe on the catwalk. It is a step into the past, to the slightly more romantic time of Flower Power. The fashion gods whose names are not limited to Louis Vuitton, Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kanem all agree that floral applique is the way to go when shoe wear is concerned. So, to show you really are IN with the fashionable crowd, you will have to outfit your wonderful feet in flower-rich shoe goodness, and there is really no excuse, because we at Shopping Blitz offer the flowery shoe-beauty in all shapes and forms, suitable even – for the office. At Work It is rather difficult to be trendy in a strict office environment, but perhaps the wonderful Softspots Achele Sandals are just the thing you are looking for. These espadrilles just SCREAM summertime. On the Town Every girl knows that it is imperative to look fabulous when going to lunch with their girl friends. These coral beauties, the Spring Step Lolitas are just the thing to give you the title of best-dressed at the table. Not to mention the high-heel will make your legs look long and your tush perky, not a bad consequence when looking for Mr. Perfect. Life of the Party Everyone needs a night on the dance floor from time-to-time and the Bordello Pleaser Pumps are the choice to boogie the night away. Summer is always the right time to show off your metallics, and this gentle rose gold color will highlight your legs even if they haven't seen the light of day in awhile. Give yourself a free tan sans the harmful UV rays and bottle streaks. These pumps also sport an ankle strap, to help you shake your booty without the fear of loosing your sandals! Wild, Wild West The Wild West staples are known to follow catwalk trends and translate them into leathery goodness. If you're planning on pairing some boots with your favorite long dress, I would wholeheartedly suggest the Laredo Mirandas. However, if you are planning on going to a rodeo – or a festival, maybe a bit sturdier Dan Post Dayzee would be more appropriate.
