Manolita Casual Flat Shoe - Nude Harness Cheyenne Flat Ankle Bootie - Harness Valerina Casual Flat Shoe - Red Stripes

How can we not love the Guatemalan inspired brand 2568. 2568 creates vibrant handcrafted shoes in both boot and flat styles.  Their shoes are uniquely designed with decorative textile detailing and fused with lush vivacious colors that can either be slipped on or laced up. You can add a little spice to your looks this summer by sliding into a pair of bold print Manolitas.  The Manolita comes in neutral colored leathers that allow for multi-purpose wears and is integrated with beautiful striped fabric elements that all come together to make an ultra-stylish shoe!  2568’s Valerina style is just as sweet; a style completely layered in colorful multi striped fabric. These dainty lovelies are exactly what every girl needs. If you are looking for a more urban look then the intricate detailing of the Cheyenne boot will definitely snag your attention. The harness leather paired with the stunningly stitched colorful canvas is a match made in shoe heaven! Personalize your wardrobe with matchless ingenuity that is the 2568 brand!

Eco-Friendly Footwear: Crocs on Crocs on Crocs….IN STOCK!

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

 

Ya, ya, ya….so we’ve given into the hype and are now carrying for the first time ever Crocs clogs for the comfort seeking, amphibious kind. Although their eco- friendliness is still in debate (and may be full of croc as the long winded plastic substitute used, “Proprietary Closed Cell Resin” or Croslite,  tells us nothing of its carbon footprint) everyone from tree huggers to corporate cowboys are clogging around in their Crocs on and off the clock. DNA Footwear Crocs Selection

 Having become a household name since their creation in 2002 Crocs are one of the leading multi-purpose shoes on the market. Their color variety and comfort maintain a loyal following from adults to kids. Give your feet a break from sweaty boots and six inch stillettos in the uber comfy clogs or sport a pair of the ballet flats. The color options vary depending on gender and age but our selection is fit to please. So why not get cozy in a pair of Crocs?

Shoe Brands: Jeffrey Campbell

In fashion, rarely do you hear designers say “Thick is in” but when it comes to shoes, this has never been more apparent (well maybe since disco and the Spice Girls). As one of today’s most recognizable shoe trends and one of our most popular brands, Jeffrey Campbell’s collections continue to champion the tall and chunky.  JC’s street appeal mixed with high-end allure fuses contrasting characteristics making each pair compatible with multiple personalities. Offering a wide spectrum of designs, patterns, colors and materials, every shoe junky has endless options, from the wild child to the conservative queen and any girl in between.

 The name Jeffrey Campbell is now synonymously known for the sky high Lita heeled boots everyone’s been rocking since their release sometime in July 2010. Diversify from the fad followers and get spotted in a new pair of JC’s flirty flats, go green with a Hippie Chic canvas espadrille or bring out the Bohemian Babe with a rustic wooden heel. Having an eye for awe, no matter which Jeffrey Campbell shoe you choose it is guaranteed to draw admirers. So dare to be different and think outside the shoe box!

Designer Spotlight: NewbarK

Monday, January 30th, 2012

newbarK

What gal doesn’t heart cute shoes? Designers and sisters Maryam and Marjan Malakpour literally “heart them” for their spring NewbarK collection.

As a stylist, I’m always looking for unique shoes for photoshoots, as well as fashionable and comfortable ones for my own busy feet. So, when I came across this fairly new shoe line from fellow stylists, it made sense that these two would transition into shoe design.

NewbarK is a luxury collection of handmade shoes and handbags, originally launched in 2009 by the Malakpour sisters. Crafted in an artisan factory in Los Angeles, NewbarK shoes and handbags exemplify a streamlined yet contrasting use of materials – leather, canvas, felt, suede and virtually no hardware, making these shoes chic, simple and modern.

You’ll heart these flats: they fold neatly into a small carrying pouch for the city girl on the go. With an aesthetic of Moroccan baboush meets Englishman’s leather slippers, they’re a sophisticated and stylish alternative to ballet flats. Think of them as the grown up version of your weekend shoe.
