5 minutes, 5 questions...with meghan cleary - america's shoe expert

We had the insane opportunity to interview Meghan Cleary...otherwise known as Miss Meghan, America’s Shoe Expert, she dishes on not only the latest trends and the hottest new designers, but on how shoes make a person feel and the impact they have on confidence, mood and body.

You've probably seen one or more of her many appearances on the Today Show, The Tyra Banks Show, Isaac Mizrahi's show, Extra!, the CBS Early Show, or the Rachel Ray show.

Plus she written a book and has also written for other publications.

So...let's just say that she knows her stuff.

Like a lot.

Here are our five questions and her five answers...

What styles are going to be hot this Fall?

Color is very strong in all styles from sneakers, to ballet flats to sky-high platform pumps. The newest rage that is sweeping London is what's called the 'fetish pump" -- six and seven inch towering platform stilettos. Christian Louboutin was an innovator in this area and continues to be encouraging women to go higher and higher!

What one style shoe should every woman have in their closet and why?

A cute pair of ankle boots, without a doubt. You can easily go from day to evening with a pair of flat heeled, ruched ankle boots in a deep green, charcoal or midnight suede. Great for running errands, but still fashion forward. Plus, they’re equally cute with skinny jeans or thick tights and a denim mini.

What's a great shoe that's chic, inexpensive, and great for running around in?

Just one? Steve Madden, Eighty-Twenty and Frye have some great shoes that are cute and versatile. Nine West, Naturalizer and Clarks also have some fashion forward styles that will not break the bank!

What are your three favorite beauty products?

· Burt's Bees lip Balm
· Fresh Post-Flight Serum with Green Coffee
· Nars Orgasm Blush

What's the best piece of beauty or fashion advice that you've ever received?

Always take care of your feet -- my grandma used to tell me that when I was little. She always used foot creams and babied her feet and it really paid off when she was older. I do the Dr Scholl’s for Her Pumice Foot Scrub and slather on the Dr Scholl’s For Her Foot Softening Balm before I go to bed. Grandma was right!!

Thanks to Meghan for taking the time to do this and to Dr. Scholl's for giving us the opportunity. If you want to learn more about Meghan, head on over to her website

With love (always),
