Trend Alert: Romantic Bohemian or Fierce Adventurer

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Though epically unpredictable rain showers put a damper on the sunny daze that should be June, New York City is finally heating up–and so are this season’s fashion forward wardrobes. As the layers come off and skin peeks through, we are grateful for all things sheer, strappy and perfectly perforated–especially when we’re talking leather footwear.

Because skin plus breeze equals bliss, we are all encouraged to experience as many of the cooler cut-out trends our favorite brands, like Miz Mooz, MTNG & SixtySeven by Mustang  have set in motion. Here we experience the paradox of choice: get gladly strappy with gladiators or pretty perfed in oxfords or sandals. Don’t know which trend is for you? Pick a sole personality, and phone a friend because these sweet styles are on sale at  30% off now through June 22nd.

Unless you are planning to run the next marathon, it is time to ditch your athletic shoes for a pair of canvas sneaker this spring. Our pick?

The Sculptural-Heeled Shorties

Monday, October 29th, 2012

With Lady Gaga and other artists exhibiting an unusual sense of (so called) fashion, designers are becoming more and more conceptual when it comes to their imaginative designs. From whimsical creations to something more wearable, we have the perfect sculptural-heeled booties to wear anywhere in the city, courtesy of Boutique 9, Dolce Vita, and Jeffrey Campbell.

All in the details, the chic Emlyn high heel booties from Boutique 9 are perfect for a glam night on the town or an upscale lunch date with friends. With its platform and more than 5” of high heel jewelry, these beautifully unexpected booties will certainly get you all of the attention wanted.

Many have spoken out about women’s love for high heels, but these avant-garde sculptural shoes take stilettos to another level. Unleash your ladylike look with the Nisha high heel ankle bootie by Dolce Vita (also offered in black). Made of calf hair, this is your go-to glam bootie of the season.

Finally, the very well known Jeffrey Campbell brand that refuses to conform to any standards, always brings rare species into the footwear world. We love how the Eva-2 high heel pump looks stylish with its plush, suede layer and slanted heel. Pair with your fave skinnies for a sexy, edgy look.

Tired of the same old shoes everywhere you turn?  Go for something different. Happy shopping!
