Eclectic, a 60s-inspired faux-leather ankle bootie from Crosswalk. The 3″ tapered heel is wrapped in faux-pressed reptile leather. The burgundy color is subtle, yet striking against the contrasting black. The vertical lines help elongate the leg and add a bit of sass to your step. These boots work for spring and fall and look great with ripped jeans.

Black Friday score! Prada’s contemporary take on a classic military silhouette. Designed with textured velvet laces, with an extra set of plain laces too – what else would you expect from Prada? A smooth, black leather ankle boot with 4″ block heel, gold-tone eyelets, an inner side zip for quick fastening and to top it off …. 50% off! Prada laceup boot

Another fabulous purchase from Delicious Shoe/Sfizi in Chicago. What’s better than buckles … well nothing, but look at these studs! Check out the Mimmu studded boot. These boots have a low heel – about 1″ – a modern day combat/army boot. A bonus … the buckles are adjustable. Although there aren’t laces – there is an inner zip – keeping this boot streamlined and neat. These boots won’t clash with your outfit as they perfectly juxtapose dresses and compliment jeans. Bring some action to your shoe wardrobe with these bad boys.

IXOS from Italy has such cutting-edge shoes. These beauties can be found at Sfizi in Chicago. I love the 2 3/4″ rounded, chunky heel; pointy toe and surprise side lace up detail. Shoes that shout “look at me”! They come in whole sizes only, so you might need to size up if toes are too scrunched in pointy toe box. The sacrifices we make for style…are well worth it.

The Papucei “Meicy” from Romania is a modern and sleek asymmetrical boot. The left is a shorter ankle boot and the right is a mid-calf angled boot. What appears mismatched in the box, works to create an edge to any outfit.

Just add a little fringe. Prada, patent leather, kilt-block heel sandals. Clean, classy and simple. So don’t let a 3.75″ heel intimidate you – these are very wearable, very walk-able and feel more like a 2″ heel. This sandal has it all … fringe, patent, peep toe, ankle strap, block heel, loads of style … love.

Dorateymur “Munise” color-block mules, by the eponymous designer, Dora Teymur. This sculptural and contemporary color blocked open back pump is my first pair from this brand and they are quickly becoming a favorite. A 3.5″ high block heel, patent black and white leather with a surprise red inner sole. What’s not to love?! Comfy, stylish and oh so mod, I’m can’t wait to see what other styles this brand has to offer.
