Anything but Ordinary Neutrals

Our last few posts have been all about colorful summer sandals and heels. We love bright pops of color for your feet but don't forget that your shoes can make a statement without having to be brightly colored. Our wide selection of neutral shoes go with anything and allows you to add color with accessories or clothing. We've paired some of our favorite neutrals with different pieces from the store to show you just a few of the endless possibilites!
Check out Jen styling in Neosens Gobi Arona s422. The grey and blue tones of her outfit are great compliments. A chunky beaded necklace and metallic clutch add some glam to her ensemble. The Ibeza wristlet is just one of several different h(om)e bags which are handmade by a Milwaukee-based artist out of recycled upholstery leathers.
These beautiful strappy sandals are as much of a statement as you could ask for! Made from a sharkskin grey leather, straps of various shades and textures overlap and encompass your foot while the 4 inch wooden heel provides the perfect amount of height. This shoe has a one inch platform and an adjustable ankle strap for added comfort. This sandal is also great to show off your summer pedicure! We had ours done today at Aveda--even Jen's toenails are coordinated!
Above, Maria is wearing one of our favorite new wedges! Dottie is an adorable four inch wedge heel by Jeffrey Campbell featuring a chic contrast of cream and dove-grey leathers. We've paired this neutral toned shoe with one of our brightly colored Pietro Alessandro bags and a delicate gold pendant necklace by designer Miki Nora.
Small cutout dots of the cream leather peek out against the grey and line the top of the shoe. The wedge narrows at the bottom for a delicate look, and the mary jane strap secures snugly over your arch.
Jen, (above) rocks the Cutout Fish shoe by All Black and a whimsical summer dress picked from our eclectic selection of vintage clothing. The dress is such a bold statement, we've paired it with a more sedate shoe and a cute, conservative handbag by Big Buddha. Misionc, like all our Big Buddha bags, is made from 100% vegan materials.
Beauty is in the details with this cute heel (pictured above). Embossed scales adorn the matte black leather and a peep toe and lace-like cutouts make this shoe unique. The mary jane strap buckles securely and the small, curved heel reflects the shape of the scales.
Maria models Biviel style number bv2919, which we paired with all handmade clothing and accessories! A light, summery dress from our store, an original necklace from Lulu's Petals, and a handcrafted wristlet from h(om)e all add visual interest and texture for a chic style.
We know how tough it can be to find footwear that is both comfortable and stylish. That's why we love this leather and wood sandal. The velcro on the wide ankle straps ensures the perfect fit and the contours of the shoe provide gentle arch support. With it's architectural design, this sandal has a distinctly contemporary feel, while the four inch heel is decidedly feminine.
If you like what you see here, you'll love what we have in the store! Stop in at (shoo) today to find more inspiration for your chic summer style.

Sweet Treats for your Feet! New Dolce Vitas!

It's no surprise that our Dolce Vita shoes have been a big hit this spring! With Pali and Marci flying off our shelves, we've added two new styles in four new colors for you to enjoy! Below, Maria wears Nyle in white leather. This neutral sandal features Native American inspired mettalic beading and a stylish criss cross design. No need to waste time on difficult buckles or laces-you can easily slip in and out of this chic sandal!

Here's Nyle in natural leather. We can't decide which one we like better! Jen rocks the blue, orange, black and white beading which lines the brown leather straps. We love that the colors of this sandal remind us of a poisonous snake while the beads make it delicate and feminine. Like the mettalic version, the sole is a solid piece of leather with a very tiny kitten heel.

Stay chic while you're on-the-go this summer! This knotted thong sandal (shown below) is perfect for your busy schedule. Even though there is a buckle on the ankle strap, the leather stretches just enough to allow you to slip it on and go! Dazz is ultra comfy with a padded sole and flexible leather cords. The knotted leather at the toe adds visual interest while the orchid pink of the cords pop against the brown leather. Six silver studs accent the sole and a tiny kitten heel and ankle strap ensure maximum comfort and wearability.

One of our most versitile sandals yet, below we have Dazz in a beautiful turquiose color! It's so difficult to choose between the orchid and the turquoise, but the great news is these sandals are so reasonably priced you can afford to get both!

You don't want to miss out on these sweet new styles! Stop in today or order online. Cheers!
