Coming Soon: Fall Boots!

It’s that time when everyone starts saying the four letter word that signals our End of Summer is near….FALL!   Our fall shoes are going to start hitting the shelves soon, so we wanted to give our customers a sneak peak at what styles we are expecting in the next few months.

Just Arrived Today!!!

We predict that this motorcycle-styled boot (Petula from ZigiNY) is going to fly off of our shelves. The buckle hardware adds a little rocker girl edginess to the boot, making it the perfect  go to boot for all of your outings.    A pair of black tights, combined with a girly cream skirt or the NEW Paige Premium Jeggings (coming soon) with your fav tunic will create a look that you will love to live in for sure!

And then…the famous MINNETONKA Moccassins….(Most are already in stock!)

Classic Casual Boho….it’s a style that really never seems to go away.  It’s also EXTREMELY wearable for our climate in the Triangle (RDU).  This is a company that is going to be front and center for FALL fashions.

Fringe is a trend for now…and Minnetonka gives a girl choices by offering it in small

AND large doses:)! Bring it on!

The Perfect Shoes for Your LBD

Fashion plays such a large part in the whole Sex and the City franchise, so it’s no wonder that you want your feet to look as smashing as possible! To follow up from yesterday’s post on the little black dress, we’re going to give you a few great shoes to wear for however you celebrate the release of the long-awaited sequal.

First off, you MUST get a pedicure, or at the very least, paint your toenails! Regardless of whether you’re wearing peep-toe or closed toe shoes, have your nails done. You’ll instantly feel more glamorous. My suggestion? You can’t go wrong with a dark red on your nails or even a delicate pink.

These pumps from Poetic License (on sale for only $64.50!) are the perfect pop of color for your LBD (also available in black, for someone who wants style without committing to the color). Color works well when you’re starting with basically a blank canvas (i.e. the solid dark dress). Just go for small bursts of a bright color paired with simple accents (such as silver bangles).

The sparkles on this Francesca Wedge from Apepazza ($135) will add a sense of sophistication and sass to your outfit. Bling is a nice little added touch to any outfit (in moderation, of course). The key is always to not overdo it, so don’t wear hot pink shoes completely covered in rhinestones. You want to look classy, not trashy.

Check back tomorrow to find out what accessories to wear in order to complete your outfit!

How to Show off your Minnetonkas!

While we’ve briefly mentioned these great shoes before, we wanted to bring them back and give everyone some tips on wearing them. Minnetonka Moccasins have definitely become a favorite shoe for fashionistas in the recent years, but it’s hard for most to imagine how to wear them other than just with a pair of boot cut jeans.

You can wear the moccasins themselves with a cute little skirt, or even with skinny jeans. Pair it with a tunic top and you’ll look fashionable but still be completely comfortable!

The boots give a bit more variety to your wardrobe. Wear them with a skirt, dress, tuck your jeans into them, the options are endless. The bohemian vibe that these shoes seem to give off is perfect for the summer.

Come check out all the different Minnetonkas that we have to offer in our retail location and our online store!

Gee’WaWa

A few weeks ago, we received these absolutely adorable shoes from a small company by the name of Gee’WaWa. From their website: “Gee’WaWa is a new line of footwear with an artisan look and feel. It is tastefully eclectic with an air of the bohemian.”

I love these adorable little shoes. They look good, they feel good, so what more do you want?

Gee’WaWa Bella Borello, $155

What would you wear these with?

Smart Shoppers love Savings…Code Sweetdeal!

As Fashionistas everywhere change their spending habits and purchasing styles….everyone is looking for that magical wand to help them get the best savings.

This is nothing new….just alot more prominent now that we have gone thru a major recession.  Everyone seems to be shopping for the best “deals” these days.

Hmmm…..a DEAL!….what exactly does that mean?

I would say that a deal is a “wise” purchase on something that will either add value to your everyday life or give you savings towards something that is a “desire”……

Now….I always admit to all of my customers…that most of us really don’t need ANYTHING! (other than air, water, & love)….but it’s the replacement or substitution of something that is already in our lives that will help us to live better, BE better and maybe just maybe add a little zing to our everyday steps:)

Hence, Spring Shopping seems to be now in full bloom….ladies are excited about warmer weather and the chance to update and revive their tired old winter look!

So….ABRACADABRA!…..if you’ve been on complete budget lockdown….let the savings begin

I mean really?!?….how LONG can a girl go without New Shoes!:)

Sneak Peek at Our 2010 Spring Shoes

We are trying as hard as we can to get the massive amount of packages that were delivered yesterday unpacked and posted onto our online store for you to check out, but until we do, here is a peek at a few of the many styles that we got in (available in our retail location today)!

We have an adorable wedge in from MADELINE which is sure to be a hit this summer. We have two colors available in this Pixie style, pewter and penny bronze, and both colors are simply stunning in person (you’ll never be able to make up your mind on which one to get, but hey, for just $45 each, you don’t have to!). The ornamentation on the front adds just the right pop of color. After all, Spring and Summer fashion is really about being colorful after being stuck indoors all Winter.

For the ones who want a little something different that a wedge, we have the Appletini sandal (also by MADELINE, $39) in Marine. With gorgeous jeweled ornaments, you can easily take this shoe from from office to cocktail hour to a walk on the beach!

Stay tuned for more updates on our newest arrivals for your feet. There’s no reason why they shouldn’t look great too!
