Marsell for the Hobo Chic or the Fashion Trendy???

10802864_293384677539466_1493737595_s

In 2011, Adam our west coast contributor enlightened us with Marsell's hobo-chic Oxford lace ups. My cousin quickly emailed me, "You've got to be kidding". Fashion bloggers questioned my taste. I'll admit they looked bizzarre....as if they belonged on a bum, hobo, clown or schlepper. Certainly not for a stylish fashionista. I had to buy the oxford lace-ups and test them out. … [Read more...]

Last week I was semi stong-armed into making an ankle bootie trade with my daughter. We both purchased the Alexander Wang, Kori low boots with the cut-out heel. I bought the faux lizard embossed version with the silver hardware and my daughter bought the dark leopard ones. While we both loved our selection my daughter suggested we trade knowing I'm addicted to leopard and … [Read more...]

While traipsing around NYC in the pouring ran and not wanting to do anymore damage to my delicate Lanvin Flats...I ran into one of my favorite stores and made a weather-inspired purchase. I bought the incredibly stylish short Jimmy Choo water-resistant PVC rain boots which I love and they're super easy to put on and take off. I find the Equestrian-styled rain boots more … [Read more...]

Wear Sensuous Women’s Sandals…Even When It’s Negative 10 Degrees and Sleeting Outside!

normal

 As the fall nips at our heels and Daylight Savings Time gives us an hour of extra beauty sleep, many women who enjoy wearing fun, stylish sandals may feel a tinge of sadness. After all, when it’s negative 1,000,000 degrees out and slushing and sleeting, your only real choice, foot-fashion-wise, is to wear a monster pair of thick, ugly, heavy snow boots. Right? Not necessarily. … [Read more...]

Isabel Marant’s Trendsetting Ankle Wrap Booties

ISAB-WZ140_V1

We're reposting these boots "front and center" today from Isabel Marant. It's officially boot season and they're beyond cool. You can't help but want to own these boots!!!

They add an extra degree of edginess … [Read more...]

Strutting In Isabel Marant’s “Cool” Booties

ETOI-WD50_V1

I've literally crunched my poor toes into more "uncomfortable" pairs of boots than I care to remember and for what reason???  The pathetic answer...just to look cool and buy the latest "ultimate" shoe booties. My toes have begged me to stop this ridiculous behavior. (I'm sure my charge cards agree, too) After parading around in my leopard Louboutin booties and on the verge of … [Read more...]

Had to repost the article from yesterday, this time featuring the white Dr. Martens. The question is quickly becoming...the white or the black printed tattoo boots??? It's definitely a hard choice. Personally, the white has a drop more pop....more traffic stopping!  Whatever you're wearing will look totally on trend with either color. Years ago everyone...kids and adults … [Read more...]

A Blast from The Past…Dr. Martens Follows In His Footsteps

001_b7886f99-e842-4465-9f32-b8e190c1d036

Years ago everyone...kids and adults (mostly kids) had to have Dr. Martens affectionately known as Doc Martens. If you didn't you were behind the eight ball...probably shouldn't have even shown up at school. I remember I had burgundy Docs that I wore with rolled jeans and short skirts with tights. If you had Docs...you had it going on and you knew you were ultra-cool. (my son … [Read more...]

Fast Forward with Pierre Hardy…Somethings Never Change…Pet or Sneaker???

117481951

It wasn't too long ago that I wrote a post titled Pet or Shoe and Cousin of The Pet or Shoe. The shoes in question were designed by the infamous Pierre Hardy. Fast Forward to fall 2014 and now there's Hardy's athletically chic sneaker adorned with his "signature" fur ball (again) but now it's on the comfy all around rubber-sole sneaker. I'm totally into the sneaker phase. … [Read more...]
