Oh, how I love shoes. I know, where's the news, right? I don't actually know how many pairs I own, and I don't dare count. It's like finding out how many calories are in the muffins I like to eat, or my actual weight. Knowing is a little too much reality for my taste. Let's just say I enjoy shoes and I own my fair share.

Now that spring is starting to happen, I've begun to break out the fun stuff: Red sling backs, blue peep toes, and today, bless their soles, a pair of green and black sting ray stilettos that make me happier then they should. And much as I like my kaleidoscope of colors, the pair I've worn three times in 10 days are my silver platform t-straps.

I'm here to tell you, if you do not own a pair of metallic heels, put them on the shopping list. They are fantastic—totally neutral, chic, edgy and an easy way to wear something...unexpected. And they work day or night. And did I mention how neutral they are? Wear. With. All. SERIOUSLY. I've worn mine with everything from jeans and an oversize sweater to a little black dress. Metallic heels? Always right, never wrong. Mine are from Kenneth Cole ($150;, but I'm seeing versions everywhere. Ok, enough already. You need to stop reading this post and go get yourself a pair.

Go! Shop! Be chic!
