This summer I got into the jogger pants craze.  I found these orange cropped joggers at Macy’s.  I bought them about two months ago, but never wore them because I could not find a matching top or heels.

Then, while perusing shoes on the Macy’s website, I stumbled upon these Madden Girl Digitize heels.  They are round toe sandals with rhinestone accents.  I bought mine in “bright floral multi” and they are beautiful with purple and yellow with specks of orangey brown.  I knew these would be the heels paired with the joggers.  Now if only I had a top… (more…)

My love of Civil War history began in 2011 after hearing a radio advertisement for events celebrating the Sesquicentennial Commemoration of the Battle of Bull Run.  The ad roused my curiosity and I began researching Civil War history.  As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the stories of North and South grip my heart and engage me to do more than just read about the Civil War, but to experience it too.  (more…)

My love affair with fringe continues.  This time, the fringe is braided, loose, and carefree.  Swishing with every move, it adds a playful personality to the GUESS Carlene sandals.  I also love the multi-row ankle strap.  These standout details are definitely eye catching.  It’s hard not to feel a “notice me” vibe when sashaying in these boho, flirty, simple, sexy heels!     (more…)

Malvern Hill Battlefield – Heels on the Battlefield

People are always surprised when they learn that I love Civil War and Ancient Rome history.  How is it that a girl who loves fashion also loves exploring battlefields and ancient ruins?  It reminds me of the time when my best friend, Tammy, and I used to ponder how girls who love boy bands could also love rock bands?  To us, liking rock bands seemed like such a betrayal to our favorite boy band.  So, we just didn’t.  Yet, music has a way of capturing hearts and minds and we eventually came to appreciate all music.

What is Instagram etiquette?  Whenever I get a new follower, I often wonder if I’m supposed to follow back even if the follower’s “brand” is completely different from my own.  Initially, I followed followers back out of courtesy.  Then, this started happening.  With some followers, soon after I started following back, the follower would un-follow me.  Huh?!  (more…)

Hollywood Cemetery – Beauty and the Studs

I am old school when it comes to technology.  I had a Blackberry until it died and I was “forced” to upgrade.  I have a Samsung Galaxy now and I love it.  Yet, I still hold on to antiquated habits such as owning a tube TV (“vintage,”right?), mailing bills, and doing my banking at the bank.  Yes, I still balance my checkbook too!

Shoes with a dash of flair usually catch my eye.  What caught my eye on these chic, black stilettos were the tassels, of course!  Tassels continue to be a popular trend.  Merge tassels with a gladiator style sandal (also in vogue) and you get the Enzo Angiolini Leluna sandals. (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest is one week old!  My first week as a shoe blogger was eventful.  I spent many evenings working on my Facebook page and reaching out to the Instagram community.  I am new to Instagram and when I posted my first picture announcing my blog, I didn’t get much of a response.  At first, I thought that was normal.  Then, I realized a day or two later, I should have used hashtags!  Lesson learned!
