    When it comes to planning your look for your wedding, shoes can be tricky -- even trickier than the dress! You've got everything else picked out, right down to how your eyelashes will curl and what your underwear (or lack there of) will be doing. But what about what's going on your feet

    Just like any other day in your life, your shoes are your chance to express your personality. They can add, style, and a hint of pizzazz to any ensemble. And why should your wedding day be any different than that? If you're getting married in the spring or summer, it can be super-easy to get lost in a veritable sea of all-the-same strappy sandals. We're here to help!

    Although by now it is a fact well-established that I do whatever possible to avoid wearing uncomfortable shoes, sometimes it can't be helped. And by "can't be helped" I mean I have a skirt that I can't wear clogs with and not look like a small-but-effective dump truck. It's sad, but true.

    Since my feet are made of the finest onion skins, they chafe, rub, blister, and bleed like nobody's business. When I do wear fancy, cute, or pointy shoes I have to take major-league proactive measures to protect my tootsies -- and the shoes themselves. Over the years, I've developed -- in the words of Liam Neeson's seminal role in the film Taken -- a particular set of skills when it comes to keeping discomfort at bay.

    Now that winter’s just around the corner, boots are on every style-savvy shopper’s mind. However, just because we’re gearing up for cold weather does not mean that our shoe selection should suffer. When you’re bundling up in sweaters and scarves, you need something to help you feel sexy and chic. High-heeled boots and booties are perfect ways to elongate your legs and keep your posture in check when cold-weather clothes are weighing you down. Try out high-heeled boots in colors other than basic black and brown and you’ll find yourself hooked on the heeled boot trend!

    Check out this preview of seriously fab high-heeled boots, then head over to The Prowl to see the rest!

    If you attended private school, you will forever associate pleats with short tartan skirts that made your bare legs itch like crazy once spring hit. It took a very long time for me to shake this memory and begin incorporating pleats into my adult wardrobe, but once I did, I found they can look magical!

    If you're on the fence about trying this super fall trend -- which has popped up on major runways the last few seasons and still proved a hit this fall at Jason Wu, Chloe, and Stella McCartney -- here are a few hints on how to wear pleats and not look like a pig-tailed schoolgirl, along with fashion inspiration.

    It's no surprise that the fabulously rich ladies from Princesses: Long Island know how to spend their parents' money. In fact, they've pretty much mastered it.

    Some of the women might have a tighter grip on their daddy's wallet (ahem, I'm looking at you, Ashlee), but I'm sure they've all had their fair share of expensive "gifts" from their beloved parents. I mean, almost all of them live at home, so they're already mooching off of their parents in one way or another.

    From nail treatments to extravagant parties to jewelry on jewelry on jewelry, these Long Island ladies have no shame in letting their daddies treat them like the princesses they think they are. Lucky for us, most of them like to show off their bling and new purchases on Instagram. Take a look at all their shiny toys!

    I've been searching through Pinterest for some of this year's hottest summer fashion trends and I kept coming across these do-it-yourself scarf sandals. That's right. Stylish sandals you can make!

    We all want to be dressed to impress, but do we really want to pay top dollar for sandals that we can only wear for a few months? No. We don't. We want sandals that don't break the bank but that still look fashionable. That's why I decided to take on the DIY scarf sandals and find out whether this was a Pinterest Win or a Pinterest Waste of Time (Fail).

    Ok ladies. I love flip flops as much as the next girl, but sometimes it's good to give those poor things a rest and step it up (Ha, get it?) in the footwear department just a teensy bit. High heel sandals and towering wedges are oh-so sexy, but, alas, I rarely wear them (only if I'm going somewhere I know I won't have to actually walk!). Luckily there are so, so many ultra cute yet ultra comfortable footwear options for summer that will show off your pedicure without giving you painful blisters or hobbling you for an entire evening.

    I was getting ready to go out on New Year's Eve, a night I think we can all agree warrants a little more bling than the other 364 days of the year, when my 8-year-old daughter walked into my closet.

    "Mommy, you look snazzy!"

    "Snazzy, huh? That's a good word. I feel snazzy."

    G-d, that kid is cute, I thought to myself, as I slipped on my snazzy stilettos.

    "Yeah, Mom, you look like a hooker!"

    Here's where you should insert the sound effect of a record being scratched to a halt, in the middle of a beautiful ballad.

    "I'm sorry, what?"

    Snooki isn't one to let a little thing like pregnancy keep her off her sky-high heels. So she fell down a couple times in her platforms. Big deal! At least they were platforms and not stilletos. Like, compared to stilletos, platforms are practically like wearing sneakers.

    And speaking of stilletos, wait until you see Snooki's fab new post-baby booties! No, not for the baby, for her. They're every bit as wild and dangerous as you'd expect Snooki shoes to be. To paraphrase another famous shoe lover, "Hellooooo leopard!"

    I think as women we're raised loving high heels: We're photographed walking around in mom's or grandma's shoes as little girls, we buy our first pair of one-inch kittens for the father-daughter dance, and our college closet is stocked with pumps for every occasion.

    Now let's pause for a moment and talk about something else: stilettos. I can't walk in them to save my life. I would faceplant. I can see wearing these sky-high spikes if you had no nerve endings in your feet (or were eager to lose said nerve endings), but for the rest of us, it just seems hopeless. Now now, don’t you fret, you fashionistas you! I have the stiletto solution EVERY style savvy mom has been waiting for ...
