Style From Head To Heel
What girl doesn’t love a nice pair of heels? There’s a special place in our hearts for stilettos and blogger Julie Wax, who shares our strong affinity for shoes and style with her site, I Heart Heels. And yes, she does heart them. Wax covers shoe trends and style from head to heel. Learn more about this shoe fanatic in this week’s edition of Weekend Read.
How did you decide to start a blog? And where did the idea for its name come from?
I decided to start I Heart Heels a few years ago as a hobby and a way to express my thoughts. It’s sort of my online journal and a way for me to record all of my favorite fashion musings in one spot. I love writing and being creative, not to mention fashion, so starting a blog has been an amazing, therapeutic experience for me. And I love sharing my favorite things with others! I wanted to come up with a name that I thought every girl could relate to, and judging by what I’ve seen, most girls I know are obsessed with heels!
Are you a full-time blogger or can you tell us about your 9-5?
Yes, I’m a full-time blogger. I’m very lucky that I get to stay home with my 21-month-old son (little C.) and focus on I Heart Heels all at the same time. I also freelance for several publications.

What is your perfect or ideal weekend like?
I think a weekend of shopping with my family combines all of my loves at once (um, and throw in an afternoon at the spa). That sounds like fun to me!
