I've decided: the only way I'm going to get over the end of summer is by going into fall feet first. In other words, I need a new pair of statement-making shoes! Opulent, over the top flats or heels will undoubtedly add some spring to my (school drop-off) step and add major zing to my cool weather wardrobe. What's more, it will put me in lockstep with fall's biggest trend. I adore these loud and proud lovelies from Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Loeffler Randall, Topshop, J.Crew, Gianvito Rossi, Bally, and Valentino.
