Shoe du jour

City Soles, a great neighborhood designer shoe boutique moved to a new and improved location. So I stopped by to take a look and say hello. Complimentary wine or espresso while you shop? Why not! Everyone needs to have their niche and this store has just that! Since I have a lot of shoes, I seriously don’t need any more. In fact, most shoes resemble ones I already have, except for one, the “Mabbare” sandal by Everybody BZ Moda, I had to try it on, I was only being polite. With great lines and unique cut outs, a simple sandal becomes art. The buttery soft black leather mixes mediums with black elastic and a 1″ heel. Simply stunning! Unique, sharp, edgy, comfortable and with an added incentive of a private sale discount, I walked out of the store with happy soles!

Rag_Bone Metallic

I am a huge fan of Rag & Bone boots. Their “Newbury boot”  launched in 2009 and became an instant classic.  A versatile must-have ankle boot that can be dressed up or down…the epitome of downtown chic style.  Their best seller is basic black, but this version in metallic taupe are so cool. Still in their signature style but done in waxed suede with a slight metallic sheen and distressed finish. A nice spin on a classic.
