Even though our New York Editor Kristian Laliberte doesn't wear pumps (really), he can appreciate a hot heel. Or a flat. Or a wedge. Basically any girl that rocks a mean shoe-game works. So, he was thrilled to get the chance to hang out at Loeffler Randall's gorgeous offices with the brand's power publicist, the equally gorgeous Maria Bui. Together they spent a day browsing through covetable pieces that must make your fall footwear hit-list, then styled all the new LR fall '11 arrivals (available starting today!) with perfect transition items from Bui's wardrobe. Check out the whole shoot, shot by Erik Melvin, over at Loeffler Randall's blog—the duo climbed water towers, played chicken with a ledge (and debated chicken legs' sexiness), and got into an ice cream fight. How hot is Maria?
