Ivanka Trump is building an empire, just like her father Donald. For her latest venture, she teamed up with Marc Fisher for a collection of shoes that will take you from the office to happy hour to the park or the beach. Ivanka says the shoes are made of the best quality materials, but they don’t have the high, luxury price you’d expect from the Trumps; most of the shoes cost about $125 or $130. Marc Fisher is one of my favorite moderately-priced footwear designers, so it’s no surprise that I like many of Ivanka’s shoes. But what do you think of Ivanka Trump Footwear Collection?

Women bought an average of three pairs each year and while the likes of Imelda and Carrie Bradshaw spend $600 or more on designer heels, the average woman spends $49 on new kicks. Only 31 percent said they spent over $100 on a single pairs of shoes. Keep reading »
As it begins to slowly inch from winter to spring, we’ve begun to reexamine our wardrobes, pulling out some of the light coats and spring dresses that have been shoved in the back for so long. The savviest fashionistas among us have a dedicated plan for switching from winter to spring. One thing I like to do — I do an end-of-season boot/shoe examination. Any shoes with busted soles or worn-down heels get taken to the cobbler ASAP. That’s because there’s nothing worse than waiting until the first cold day of fall to realize all of your boots have busted heels.
