Wedges, Anyone?


Combining oxfords and wedges? Yes please!
Though just as towering and magnificent as their heeled counterparts the stiletto, wedges are definitely superior with regard to stability. And wedges promise to make a glorious statement this fall. The trick? Find a slim wedge--no chunky, '70s styles to be had here. As far as the actual style of the shoe itself, the sky's the limit. Ankle boots, oxfords, peep toe, pointy toe... just take your pick!

Casual and classy wedge combo!
 These wedges lend themselves naturally 
to skinny jeans, or a shorts and tights 
combo. This season however, stylists 
suggest using them as a counterpart to 
more ladylike shapes--like a midiskirt 
or dress. Wedges can be dressy, or casual, 
and are easy to dress up and dress down.
For a dressier and more polished look, 
try a pair of pointy toe, black leather wedges, perhaps with metal hardware 
accenting. They'll lend themselves
easily to skirts and dresses. For a go
to, everyday wedge, try a basic brown 
bootie, like the pair in the photo on 
the right. One more reason to love this 
season's  take on the classic wedge? 
They're an ideal day-to-night shoe. No 
more fast  shoe changes at the office!

Oxfords and Brogues


Lovers of menswear, rejoice! 
Both oxfords and brogues have 
made it on the list of 
popular shoes for the fall. 
These delightful (and quite 
comfortable) shoes seem 
determined to stay. More 
typically a classic staple 
among men, women too have 
taken a liking to the sturdy 
leather footwear.


You've probably already tried them out.
Maybe less socks, and with a pair of 
cuffed jeans. Or perhaps with a pair of 
tapered trousers. However, lace-ups and loafers alike can lend a hand when it 
comes to dressier looks. To soften out
the mannish nature of the shoe, fashion
designers and stylists alike suggest
pairing them with something more gentle,
flattering, and feminine--such as a dress
or skirt, or even with tights and a pair
of shorts. The level of dressiness?
It's determined dress, skirt, or shorts
themselves. A pinstriped shirt-dress
might offer a more structured and preppy
vibe, while a pair of cuffed jean shorts
would present a more casual look overall.

Shoes of the Season

Thus far, we've only been covering summer trends, and transitional summer-to-fall trends. Let's take a different tack this week, and look at a few shoe styles that promise to make a big splash with the coming season. The shapes and styles are familiar... we've seen them before, and they're back again. The season's twist is not so much the shoe itself, but how it's worn and with what pieces it's paired. Let's start it off today with an old staple... the strappy heel.

This particular style brings the wow factor: from flattering skin reveals, to sky high and thin heels--they're anything prim. The trick? Contrast. Rein in the va-voom factor by choosing a strappy heel in a low-key color, or a polished pattern. Step the contrast up a notch by skipping the obvious outfit--leave that mini skirt in the closet, and instead try a flowing, feminine dress or a sharp pair of tailored ankle trousers.

The Recap on Neutrals

Ivory and espresso...
It's Saturday once again, ladies! It's been a week all about summer 
to fall transitional neutrals. And since the weekend is upon us, let's 
go ahead and do a quick recap of all the major points to remember...

Latte
Soft, creamy, and more relaxed than ordinary khaki.
It's not fussy. It's laid back. And it pairs well with 
peaceful and inviting hues. Colors to pair with latte:  
toast, ice blue, dusty rose, and sage. 
The result? Pure and complete serenity.

Ivory
Luxurious. Classic. Beautiful. Elegant. And ivory is the
perfect compliment to jewel tones. Colors to pair with ivory:
eggplant, espresso, pine, and ruby.
The result? Fashion that withstands the constraints of time.

Flint
Cool and reserved. Conservative. There's nothing flashy about
this simple hue. But because of that, flint is the ideal
backdrop for bold neon hues. Colors to pair with flint:
pink, orange, lemon, and royal.
The result? Bright and modern, with a sporty vibe.

We've put out over 300 items this week, ladies, so there are
plenty of new treasures to see. Swing by for a cup of tasty fresh 
brewed coffee and take a peek. It's time to start the weekend!
