Bright Shoes

Bright Stilettos by Alexandra Phanor-Faury Bright fanciful footwear is the ultimate anti-dote to a long winter of dark, tough shoes. No matter what style you lean towards, feminine, classic or fashion forward, we can all agree that summer calls for cheerful shoes. Bright shoes are an instant mood lifter and they draw lots of attention your way. It's one of the simplest ways to work intimidating exuberant colors into your wardrobe. Try adding a jolt of piercing blue, citrus yellow or glossy azure into your current rotation for a stand-out entrance.
