Spring 2010 Trend Report: Palermo

It's around mid-February every year that I start to set my eyes on the prize - spring, that is. It's the beacon of hope that gets me through the rest of the New England winter, knowing that in (hopefully) just 6 or so weeks I won't need mittens to drive to work, I can hang up the heavy winter jacket and I can maybe even slip my feet into a pair of open-toe shoes. That, my friends, is the true sign of spring. Maybe some of you are already experiencing some warmer days, or maybe you're lucky to live in a place where it never gets this cold, but I think we can all agree that spring is exciting not just for the weather, but for the FASHION! It's the season of color and flirty fabrics and lovely, lovely sandals. Söfft unveiled some utterly sexy and sultry looks for Spring 2010, including the Palermo - at first glance, this may look like a full-coverage heel but make no mistake about it, this shoe is h-o-t! The super-soft layered suede wraps around your foot, giving you that legs-for-days look that was all over the runway. And the flattering grey color is the perfect neutral to compliment spring's blush tones and bright color palette.

See how well the Palermo takes you from the office to a night out and through the weekend, then hurry up are orders yours today before they are winter should be!

Söfft Storms Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas usually stays in Vegas, but the Söfft crew had such a good show that I'll break this rule and fill you in! The World Shoes and Accessories show at Mandalay Bay was a success, where Söfft rolled out the newest and hottest designs for Fall 2010.

Each day was filled with talk of shoes, shoes, shoes and each night everyone was full with food from some of the best restaurants in Sin City! WSA even had a special celeb visit from Scrubs star Donald Faison and his girlfriend, Cacee Cobb.

As for the Fall 2010 Collection, that's a secret that will have to stay in Vegas...for now. But in case you find yourself heading to the desert, don't gamble on an uncomfortable pair of shoes that could have you calling it an early night. How hot would these look for a night out?

Best of all, they'll be sure to carry you through whatever adventures you run into. Now those are the kind of secrets that might have to stay in Vegas... ; )
