Have you ever heard the phrase, “feels like I’m Walking on a Cloud?” Well, never before did the phrase mean so much to me as when I saw a cross section of the new Isaac Mizrahi Live Moccasin. I had this weird sort of Déjà vu moment because I had just left a Serta Mattress training session when the IsaacMizrahiLive buyer asked me to take a look at the moccasin. Seriously, some of the same ingredients/technology that we saw in the mattress were also in the footbed of the shoe. Weird… And Cool.

Let me start out by saying… I don’t wear slippers. And it’s not for reasons you may think. Growing up, I lived in a log cabin, and the word slipper and all of its connotations just did not exist in my realm. You see, IF I was going to wear slippers, I was going to wear socks, and IF I was going to wear socks I was going to pretend like I was ice-skating on our slick floors and totally give Kristy Yamaguchi a run for her money in Olympic Gold. These were just my thoughts at 7… but you can understand how the thought of a slipper just did not tran... Continue Reading

In 1995, I heard we were planning a new show called “Shoes on Sale” where we would raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research and education. As a volunteer in the fight against cancer, since like so many families, our family had been affected by cancer, I went on a full-court press to do the show and luckily, they said yes! We took many trips to New York to visit FFANY headquarters and to meet with the designers who were so generously donating the shoes.
The event actually began the year before in New York, spearheaded by the then president of FFANY, Dick Jacobso... Continue Reading

Diamond encrusted heels! Silk wrapped ankle straps! Flower embroidered vamps! I think that secretly (or not so secretly), most of us have a passion for shoes. Sometimes we buy because of the look, and sometimes because of the price. If I asked you what the Most Extraordinary Shoe in the World would be, what would you say? Would it be from a very expensive designer brand? Perhaps that Birkenstock that you've had for years since college which holds so many memories that you simply can't part with it. For me, it would be one word... Orthaheel. A sho... Continue Reading

This year was one of the warmest Memorial Day weekends I can remember. Some years we are still wrapped up in sweatshirts when we head to the beach for the unofficial start of summer.

The line was out the door and we were shuffling along hot and bored, until I looked down and the woman behind me had on the cutest shoes! Of course I had to tell her I loved them, and that started a conversation about how we love shoes, love to look nice, and feel good dressing up. The line seemed to speed up just be...

It rained. Not just rain, but wind, hail, cold. A storm San Diego, ca hadn't seen in decades. It was mid November 2010 and I was the local ABC morning weather caster. I saw the monster coming. I studied the models the days leading up praying for any change that would spare us. Instead it just got worse.

I recently read about a study where random people were asked to bring in their favorite pair of shoes.

So you ladies might know by now that I've fallen in love with a new concept this season. The high-low hem! I must confess when I first heard and saw the idea of a dress being shorter in the front and longer in the back I thought it wouldn't be a trend for me. I was so wrong! Here's where trying things on matters so much. I judged a book by its cover and thought, "nah, not for me," but when I tried on a high-low hem I couldn't have been more wrong. It's the perfect example that sometimes clothes look different on the rack than they do on the body. So this season, I want you to at... Continue Reading

It's no secret that Shoe Shopping has become one of my favorite times to spend with you. But unlike other shows that have months of planning and brainstorming sessions that mold the look of the show, this one came about in a gentler way. We started the show a few years back because of the popularity of the online page of the same name. Little by little, we saw more shows on the air and now we have the luxury of seeing it several times a month.

When I don't feel like putting any effort into getting dressed, I throw on a maxi dress. It's a quick way to look put together and it cuts down your getting-ready time. If it's a print, try a great pair of earrings. If it's a solid, wear a big, chunky necklace and call it a day!
I've been incredibly drawn to wearing crochet in two ways—footwear and bottoms (skirts and shorts).

I'm so glad you hung in there and really learned to love the footbed of the Birki's and Papillio brands! Everybody's feet are different, and one of the great things about these clogs and sandals is that over time, they mold to your individual foot. Having that support underneath your arches also supports the stress you put on your knees, back, and hips as well.
