Shoe Shopping Online

Online Shoe ShoppingMy biggest problem with shoe shopping is not finding my size, it’s finding shoes I like! I want my shoes, sandals and boots to be simultaneously chic, comfortable, and flattering on my 9.5 size feet.

My camera hadn’t run out of battery either so I have some great photos to share. Continue Reading →

Is fringe coming back in fashion? The iconic southwestern style of fringed jackets, moccasins, jeans and turquoise jewelry come in and out of fashion fairly regularly, and I feel like we’re in for another reinvention of this classic American look. Maybe I’ve been looking at too many Free People catalogs but I’m starting to warm up to fringe.  Recently I’ve noticed some cute southwestern inspired looks on the street and I flirted with a suede fringe jacket at at a local thrift store too. Fringed boots and sandals aren’t usually my thing, but when Minnetonka Moccasins contacted me to write a post for them I went over to their site to look around and rather liked what I saw.  Continue Reading →
