Turns out all that glitters is not gold (sorry to disappoint), but with all the attention sparkle-laden fashions are getting these days, these shoes may as well be as good as gold!
Animal print or bust!  Let’s Face it – animal print never gets old.  Unless, of course, you’re Nicki Minaj.  Toned down and paired with an equally awesome ensemble you can’t go wrong.

We couldn’t have asked for a more versatile pump! Perfect for going from office to happy hour and…what do you know? It’s dressed in a lovely shade of purple that exemplifies the freshest Spring trend.
Relaxing day at the beach? Hangin’ out poolside, perhaps? Yes, please! These puppies are the perfect combination of island attitude and mainland fashion sense (not that the two are mutually exclusive, of course).

We want to know — what color will you dare to wear this spring?

Trend of the moment…. Glitter!

Hi! I’m Danielle, the buyer at Shoe Metro.

I have a deep love for fashion, interior design, and anything creative. When asked, I jumped at the opportunity to blog about fashion because it will give me a way to document all of my current fashion obsessions, inspirations, and ideas.

Fall’s latest footwear features glitz and glamour ranging from pumps covered in sequins to glitter saturated sandals. Perfect timing with the holidays right around the corner. Although the glitter trend seems to be more evening appropriate it can be dressed down as well.

Here are a couple of my favorites…

Miu Miu Glitter Peep Toe Pumps
