Sneakers – Viva l’Italia

Let’s face it. You wear sneakers for casual comfort. Sometimes you wear them to make a fashion statement. And there are times when we’ll sacrifice comfort for style.
With the Italian brand, Premiata leather mule sneaker, you don’t have to sacrifice. Quality leather and pillowy insoles that mold to your feet. Understated elegance. Whether running errands or walking down the street, be prepared to be stopped in your tracks with people asking where you got these.

Magnificent Mules

IMG_9052Elevate your denim or leggings with a magnificent mule! Brea by Rag & Bone is a stretchy leather, pointy-toed black mule. Comfy, sassy and stylish, you’ll wear this on repeat.

Recycled Pump

These pumps are made for walking.

Made from recycled plastic bottles, you can now be stylish AND sustainable.

The “Melody” square toe pump from Vivaia. You’ve probably seen the pop up ads in your feed and passed it off as click bait. It’s an actual site and an actual brand. And they continually sell out. I purchased their extra-padded version. A bit snug at first, they soon mold to your foot and provide all-day comfort.  Sporting a knit upper, square toe and slightly curved 1.75″ heel, these kicks just might help save the environment and provide sustainable style.


Shoe du jour – A Cap Toe Ballet Loafer

IMG_8531 IMG_8533Want a shoe that goes with everything and elevates your outfit? These Tory Burch cap-toe ballet loafers are that perfect shoe. With an almond-shaped toe and decorative bow, these super stylish two-toned kicks make the ordinary to extraordinary. Comfy, stylish and reasonably priced, they are a pair you will wear on repeat. There is a flat version, but I prefer a little more of a heel.


Boot du jour

We all need a good “go-to” boot, don’t you think? Well, Stuart Weitzman has the perfect pair –the “Soho” 50/50 lug sole bootie. It’s a casual, everyday style to elevate your jeans and leggings. It has their trademark half stretch leather front and stretch fabric back – giving these a sleek and stylish, cool-girl style. The exaggerated lug heel and platform adds a bit of kick-ass playfulness. They easily slip on and provide all-day comfort. Get the “go to” boot on sale while you can.

Happy shopping!



Loafer du jour

It’s all about the platform heeled loafer.

Rag &Bone has made an instant upgrade to the traditional penny loafer with a square toe and a bit of flair with a flared heel.

You will definitely stop traffic in these shoes.


Shoe du jour

Local shoe stores can be a gem. At Lori’s, the sole of Chicago, you’ll find some unique offerings. Their private line, L’idea, is just that…a gem. Simply called “Leather Heeled Loafer”, this patent leather, squared toe loafer has a chunky flared 3″ wrapped heel and a brushed gold horse-bit inspired adornment. A shoe you could wear on a daily basis from 9 to 5 and beyond.


Shoe du jour – a signature classic

Christian Louboutin “Miss Sab” Patent Pump is that perfect shoe for your closet. Shiny patent leather, rounded toe, 3″ heel, red sole –it’s the curve of the 3″ heel that sets this shoe apart from the others. Sleek and sexy, go from work to dinner in signature style.


Shoe du jour – classic

Every once in a while a classic shoe comes along that you want and absolutely need. The Prada logo platform mule is that perfect shoe. Penny loafer style, chunky heel and goes with everything. My new favorite.
