Via Spiga released photos of it’s Fall 2011 shoes. The collection has something for everyone. Chunky platforms, ballet flats, wedges, and loafers. Let’s look and see what they will be offering for Fall.
The patent animal print is a fun change from hair on hide that was shown in the Pre-Fall shows.
Women’s Wear Daily just took a poll that asked readers what they thought was going to be the most important trend for 2011.

The poll result, I think, is influenced by increasingly casual lifestyles.

I am kind of at a loss here. Like, for as much as I love Jimmy Choo, I am not sure how to feel about these boots. Oh, I know you see them there. These big, silver wellies.
