Free Bird

When we were looking at boots to add to our fall boot selection here at (shoo) we came across this distressed beauty from Freebird.  The Bama makes it easy to transition from summer to fall, its red leather is unique and a great way to spice up your wardrobe without trying too hard.  The great thing about the Bama is that it will look great with any look from a simple denim and button down top to a complete rock and roll look like the one we styled today!  We chose this cool Bon Jovi tank top that our vintage and resale Guru Fashion Farmboy found for our clothing selection in our lower gallery. Styled with a vintage pencil skirt and layered it with a light wash denim vest. At (shoo) we are all about promoting our local artist such as our very own Lacey,
who made the sterling silver rings she wears here. We are widely known for our large selection of TOMS shoes that we carry in our stores, but what a lot of people may not know is we also carry TOMS sunglasses!! This also works in the same One for One model, with each pair purchased TOMS
 will help restore sight for a person in need. Anna Theissen is another of our talented local artists who we show case here at (shoo), she made the leather and silver necklace we styled for this look. We also carry a ton of jewelry from The Birds and the Beads here at (shoo) such as the beaded bracelets seen on Lacey! If you are a vegan leather lover, here is the perfect bag for you by Melie Bianco.

The New Black

 The "little black dress" is a must have in any woman's closet. Not only is it famous for its slimming tricks, but it is an easy article to throw on for a smooth transition from day-to-night.  This silky dress from Ann Taylor is one of the fabulous finds from Fashion Farm Boy, its silky cut flows with each step you take.  This time we stirred away from the usual black and white mix and decided to take a risk styling these multicolored slip on booties from United Nude.  It felt like love at first sight!
All the colors stand out beautifully against the black fabric, lending an almost tribal feel. These booties are the perfect height from walking all day to dancing all night!  A beaded necklace adds a nice pop of color and texture.  This particular necklace is made by Gypsy Adornment, one of the many local artists we carry here at (shoo). These are handmade one of a kind gifts for any occasion.  Laura Waldenbach from Pointelle Design is another one of our local artist who made the colorful beaded bracelets we used for this look, she is also gifted with making intricate knitting goods that will be ideal in the coming fall! This look is topped off with a fine leather bag from Pietra Alessandra, this rich color makes all the difference. Stop into (shoo) today to get this entire look before its gone!
