Big shoes to fill

After seeing the amazing Spring 2010 Miu Miu collection pop up in stores, magazines, and online, I became obsessed with the school girl style prints and humorous detailing, but the shoes (high, big heels, and graphic shapes) pushed me over the lustworthy edge. I remember when I was younger and my little dress shoes were all mary-janes, you know, the ones you wore to church that were probably white patent leather. Well, these mary-janes grew up, got some high fashion styling, and are ready to incorporate themselves into a more mature closet. Since the thicker heel is instantly immature (in a good way), I put together some outfits that are perfect for Spring to Summer workdays that will ensure all coworkers you are still able to join in on those after work drinks. Stick with light fabrics that aren't fitted. A heavier shoe tends to accentuate your legs, so keep everything light up top.

...and since these shoes will probably never find their way into many closets, to re-create the look, search for thicker stacked heels, like these from Delman, but make sure the height stays pretty high (big heels on low shoes can look awkward).
