    The other day I found myself lustfully eyeing another woman's footwear. I know, it's weird, but this actually happens a lot. I can't remember the rest of her outfit, but I can picture her strappy gold and silver sandals. I loved 'em! Since then, I've been spotting more people wearing shiny summer shoes, and you know what? A metallic sandal adds a pretty punch to even the most casual of outfits.

    Now, I'm on the hunt for a pair for myself. Here are six of the cutest options I found (that I can actually afford). The only problem is ... I want them all!

    Every summer I start in the same way. I promise myself THIS year will be different. This is the year I will finally break out of the shoe rut and wear some of the dozens of heeled and bejeweled sandals I have bought over the years. And then, like every other year before it, I wear nothing but flip-flops all summer.

    So what's a shoe-loving gal to do? The answer is this: combine fashion and function. A comfortable slip-on that also looks great out at night? Does such a shoe exist! Oh yes. They do.

    Here are 8 awesome flip-flips that do double duty. You can wear them from the pool to dinner without skipping a beat. See below:

    Dorothy's ruby red slippers, kindly step aside. There's a new iconic footwear we're obsessed with: Angelina Jolie's wicked Maleficent shoes. Legendary shoe designer Christian Louboutin created them just for her, and Jolie is showing them off at premieres all over the world. My favorite by far is the pair made for the Asian launch -- gold foil with transparent panels and creepy, horn-shaped heels. The better to remind you of Maleficent's horned headpiece, my dear!

    You have to see these one-of-a-kind, custom-made shoes. They're so evocative of Jolie and her character. But ... could you ever imagine yourself wearing them?

    Summer's here! Time to get your feet ready to come out of hiding and meet the world! That means a pedicure and some totally sweet sandals! Sometimes unfortunately that also means some seriously blistered toes. For verily, summer shoes were not built for comfort. By and large, they were created for cuteness. My tender tootsies can testify. 

    But fret not! There is a solution. You can have the cuteness of summer footwear without any of the agony! You just have to know what you're looking for. Go for almost-flat shoes or sandals. You don't want them to have zero support, a little heel will help stabilize you and keep your legs and feet from feeling tired. I also suggest, whenever possible, wide straps -- the wider, the better!

    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!

    "Birkenstocks are back!" My good friend posted that on Facebook the other day, and I confess: I cringed. Oh yes, they are ... they are indeed. And I will admit, there are some cute styles out right now that catch even my eye. And I know, I know: ALL the cool kids are wearing them. But I just don't think I can do it. I love a comfy shoe as much as the next girl, but I require footwear with a little more sex appeal (and a little less crunch).

    Have you seen this shoe? I'm talking about Stuart Weitzman's "Nudist" sandal, seen on every celeb's well-manicured foot these days. They have a simple elegance (er, because they're barely there) and they'll go with almost everything in your closet. I love them! If only they did not cost $398 I would have one in every color. Or even just one pair.

    But guess what -- the Nudist is already being knocked off by everyone. And this is great news for us non-celebs who spend all our shoe money on sneakers for the kids. Here are 8 version of the It-sandal of the season you can actually afford.

    Everyone is talking about how spring is coming (hooray!) and they can't wait to slip into some toe-exposing sandals. My pedicure is ready and I love the air on my toes. But I'm also not going to give up my ankle boots. They are perfect with jeans in the winter and fall, but they look great with dresses and shorts in spring and summer. Yes, ankle boots. Even the suede ones.

    I have some very specific reasons your ankle boots should be a year-long staple.
