Style Report: Fall Shoes

One of my favorite things about each new fashion season is seeing the new shoe styles - because, quite honestly, I am a complete shoe addict. From stiletto's to flats, I love them all - love how many variations there are, how they are like little works of art for your feet.

This fall, the shoe collections are big on wedges, high-healed loafers, bright colorful pumps, satin fabrics, patent leather, booties, ankle straps and thick chunky heels. Here are some of my personal favorite picks for the season...

First up - booties! I love them paired with tights and short feminine skirts, or mini-dresses. They make me feel so rocker-chic and like a true fashionista.

Next up -wedges! I am a big fan of the wedge - mostly because I can get the height without quite as much pain as a stiletto. I am dying over the leopard print wedge - if I could only pick one shoe this fall, that could quite possibly be it.

Brightly colored pumps are next. I wish I had more of this kind of shoe in my closet - its such a fun way to jazz up an outfit and add a little punch to an all black ensemble during the fall or winter months.

Since purple is one of my favorite colors of all time, I naturally had to pick my favorites in every shade of this lovely hue. The Jimmy Choo bootie is amazing and so glamorous, but I also love the D'Orsay loafer with the low heel from Oscar de la Renta - I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it before.

And finally, a few simply stunning white and black options that make my little heart go pitter-patter. Especially the cream feathered ones from Christian Dior - imagine them under your wedding dress - be still my heart!

Now, if I could just fill my closet with one of each of these fabulous pairs of shoes, I would be the luckiest fashionista in the world. 

Which one would you pick if you could pick only one?
