Diva on a Dime - Haute Footwear Trends - Mary Janes & Sexy Gladiators

You have to love some of the Fall 2008's featured footwear styles. Some of my favorites popular styles feature gorgeous detailing featuring a sexy gladiator twist, a preppy but very grown-up Mary Jane and some sophisticated platform pumps. I've spotted these details with those gorgeous gladiator inspired Jimmy Choos on celebs like Fergie, Rihanna and Lucy Liu.

The latest of these trends can be found at a variety of price points depending upon your budget. Here are a few of my latest lemmings:
