In my last post, I shared about the resurgence of the belt bag - aka the fanny pack (in case you missed it, you can check it out here: The Belt Bag). Another trend that had popped up a couple of seasons ago and seems to still be going strong is the kitten heel. We won't even get into the fact designers are often pairing this trend with trouser socks - and not worn with pants but with skirts or dresses. Instead, we are going to focus on the footwear itself.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm a fan of the stiletto. There is something magical about slipping into that high heel. On the other hand, I'd much prefer to be in a pair of flights. And, the kitten heel offers a nice balance (no pun intended) between the two worlds.
As with any trend, they are often recycled from the past, just re-interpreted. In turn, this could be why the designers are playing with the heel - it may be little on height, but the heel has attitude. Just take a look at Prada, who plays with the design of the heel. Yes, another reason why we should have fun with fashion - even if it's only two inches.
The fun doesn't end with the heel. You may find an array of designs on the top of the shoe, including studs. These are not ordinary kitten heels. And, they prove the word "kitten" should not be taken seriously, as they can be fierce too, just like it's taller stiletto friend.
As for styling, the beauty of these shoes is they can be the focus of your outfit. You can make them your statement piece, so you can pair them with jeans for a night out on the town or for brunch with the girls. These kitten heels offer practicality and fun. They seem to be a win-win!
What are your thoughts on the return of the kitten heel?
P.S. Be sure to pair your kitten heels with jeans and an Adea Sleeveless Crewneck Layering Top.

I’ve never been able to pull it off BUT I’ve always wanted to go to Australia – everything I’ve heard about it fascinates me. That said I often watch those “survival” TV shows where a person takes a wrong turn in a desert, forest, mountain or the outback and is lost for days on end. Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”
Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
