Summer is officially here and I want new Shooz. I want new sparkly sandals, wedges, thongs, peep-toe pumps...I want it all.  Have you checked out the trends this year? Quite funky!

Things to look for and guide your shopping:

Go-Go Gladiator:
Yes, the Gladiator sandal look is still here. I'm really on the fence about this because it's very tough to pull off. Ankle straps are pretty unforgiving unless you're a 6 foot tall, 100 pound woman.  Here's what's in store:
Cole Hahn
Loeffler Randall

Bewildered and Bejeweled:
These are great - especially if you aspire to have a recurring guest role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Sparkly, stones and baubles bring bling to your feet.

Enzo Angiolini

Calvin Klein

Thong Song:
Flat and flirty, I've been seeing these everywhere. I especially like the thong sandals that have some kind of sophisticated embellishment. These are definitely my favorite trend of the season. Some of my faves:

Tory Burch

Sam Edelman 

Pardon Me Sir, Is it 1985?
You heard it here first - jellies are back. I was in New York last week in an elevator going to the 53rd floor and there they were...jellies. Oy!

Vera Wang 

Calvin Klein 

And, the "No, You Didn't" Shoo of the Week goes to.....Dolce Vita, who has succeeded in producing a whole line of frightening footwear.

What are your favorites this season?
