 The tan sandal with straps around the ankle is a classic way to wear a heel for summer!
 Here are the stilettos of color we are wanting to see! Again, with the strap around the ankle again.

Shoe Trend for Men and Women 2011

 Here are tods (under). the full assortment of colors with the slip ons with the traditional tods beads on the bottom of the shoe. Classic! On the above picture (2nd to the top), the pic is of Dr. Martin boots that you can purchase in different brand and colors, but you can definitely find them anywhere!!! Now my favorite is the picture right above us. The classic slip on mens shoe. Looks good for a night out or a day of errands. looks classic and chic with anything. they all versatile and that is what is the best about them! So comfy you could wear them as slippers. You can find them in all the colors and well as different brands and designs. but comfort is comfort and chic is chic!
So are you wondering what to look for and buy to have the latest summer trends for 2011? Look no further. The new look? A lot of color. Lots and lots of color. Orange being the first. Not only are you seeing the bright colors in clothes, but in the shoes. Slip on, kitten heels, Sneakers, etc. You can find every shoe with the latest rainbows of colors.

Beauty at its finest





At a evening at the Duomo, shopping as usual, I count help notice how the sunset illuminates the buildings in milan. It was so beautiful it was hard not to stare. The Duomo is definitely my favorite part of Milan. There is all kinds of stores, food, and a good time. You could stay around the duomo all day and not get bored. I always wondered why when you search Milan you saw the Duomo Cathedral... Now I know why! This place is mesmerizing, and the Duomo is a thousand times prettier in person. Stores here include: Rolex, Zara, Promod, H&M, Louis Vuitton, Prada, United Colors of Benetton, Armani, Marc Jacobs, Miss Sixty, Betsy Johnson, and much much more!! You have your not so expensive ready to wear to the Golden square of  fashion, which includes stores from the top designers around the world! It screams welcome to the fashion capital of the world!
