"Sole to Sole"

According to the latest issue of Harpers Bazaar, we will see an influx of kitten heel shoes for fall. From what I saw in the magazine, it appears that that trend will apply mainly to pumps. While I love a kitten heel shoe, there is nothing that compares to a nice wedge or chunky heel. I've noticed that many of the designers, while keeping with the stiletto and wedges, are also offering lower-heeled styles, such as the Stuart Weitzman studded boot and those from Chloe. This year I hope to find the "perfect" wedge boot; I would love for it to look something like the Jimmy Choo wedge featured here. I'm really into the whole "stud thing".....there's just something about that "rocker" edge. I went into T.J. Maxx this afternoon, and just about every bag that I saw had studs. There was a particular top-handle tote that caught my attention; it was black, gray and completely covered in front, with silver and bronze studs, with a large onyx looking stone in the center. I'm thinking that I need to go back and get it (if it's still there), as it will prove to be a great wardrobe addition. Of course, after that, I'll need to find the some really cute studded boots and shoes.....it just never ends!
