It’s no secret that we here at Rue are kind of obsessed with everything style- and fashion-related. So when our semi-annual Shoe La La Boutique rolls around, you can bet we’re indulging in some major shoe lust. Here, a few of Rue’s most shoe-savvy associates reveal what they’re hoping to add to their collections, stat.

Giuseppe Zanotti leather rose peep-toe pumps. For the days I need a little extra edge on my game.”
– Bev C., Product Analyst 

“The Lanvin bow-tie patent leather pump. The bow adds a ladylike touch and the heel is enough to put the perfect stride in my step.”
– Meredith G., Senior Corporate Concierge

“I’m loving Charlotte Olympia‘s quirky designs. I firmly believe your shoes should make you smile. And with the dainty ankle strap, this pair will be in heavy rotation now through fall.”
– Sam D., Senior Copywriter

“Bruno Magli’s ‘Muznio’ canvas loafer. It’s right on trend for summer and I can see myself dressing it up or down with white pants or light-colored denim.”
– Hung L., Associate Creative Director

“The Fratelli Rossetti patent penny loafer. Dark blue is a great addition to your wardrobe, easy to match but unexpected.”
– Tom W., Vice President of User Experience

Ah, another year. A chance to start fresh, revamp a workout, kick a bad habit, or pick up a new skill. For many of us here at Rue, wardrobe renewal is at the top of our resolution list. And like all great outfits, we’re starting from the bottom up. While we all have our shoe go-tos (I’m partial to an old pair of square-toe leopard flats), resolutions are all about change. So, from striking patents to exotic fabrics, here are four ways to shake up your shoe routine.

BLG 1147 Boutique Support-Perfectly Paired

Sometimes an outfit change can be as simple as swapping out the accessories. Starting from the ground up, shoes are the perfect switch to take your favorite dress from the office to dinner or drinks in a snap.

For Party Season
Shiny, metallic, and strappy, these open-toe sandals transform a sheath into a dance-all-night number. All that’s left? Swiping on some lipstick.

For Springtime Dinners
There’s no doubt that warm weather is on the mind, and these architectural sandals are perfect for transitioning winter dresses into spring-ready outfits (or packing for that tropical getaway).

For the Office
You may not be able to get too wild with the accessories at work, but these tasteful, red pumps add just the right amount of oomph (and personality) to that 9-to-5 uniform.

Our  Perfectly Paired: Party Dresses & Flashy Pumps Boutique opens Sunday, December 30, at 11AM ET.

While a shoe addiction obviously needs zero justification, sometimes those not-totally-mainstream heels do – when worn during certain occasions.

And who is well-versed in operating outside the norm? None other than Betsey Johnson, of course. Using her sky-high stunners as guides (all plucked from our Betsey Johnson Boutique), here are three different ways to walk on the edge of the unexpected – while staying completely dress code–friendly.

 

Dominating the workplace. As long as that clean, classic shape is in place, you’re good. (So go wild with the color.)

Fulfilling that wedding invite. From barn venues to black ties, a super-femme, architectural heel like this one will always fit in.

Tickets to The NutcrackerMetalheads, rejoice: Spikey studs totally count as festive attire.

Our Betsey Johnson Boutique opens Tuesday, November 27, at 11AM ET.
