Dolce Vita seems to keep doin’ it right and makin’ it work, as Tim Gunn says. But it’s true–take the Tami espadrille for instance. We chose this sandal for the upcoming season in a fun flirty green or in a keep-it-simple black because of a slew of reasons. One, DV by Dolce Vita prices sandals and shoes reasonably. For $82 the suede leather wedge is kept real with a REAL price, we all can afford. Second, we chose this sandal because it’s a heel you can actually wear and walk in. Obscene heels are hard to come by in the SM, we choose styles we would want to wear (even during our shifts) and what girls would want to wear walking out of the store in. Last, we’re head over heels (yes, pun intended) for the espadrille style–a lil’ bit of platform, a lil’ bit of wedge, and a lil’ bit of Raffia. The best of all worlds, and it works. The Tami looks good and works well.
It’s possible you might have seen this shoe floating around at a few other stores, but that’s only because the “Gypsy” is coveted by all and for good reason. The first part in our Seychelles series for the week, the “Gypsy” has the look of a heeled shoe one might see on a salsa dancer, a ball room dancer, and well, most fancy, fast feet movin’ dancers, and it’s because of that almost 4″ inch heel height. Dancers love the extra heel height, but don’t worry this doesn’t have to be your dancin’-slash-clubbin’ shoe–au contraire. We think (@$105, the average price for most Seychelles is always only @$100) this heeled sandal would lovely walkin’ and struttin’ your style for every day and during the day too. This is a heel you can wear out and about during the day, and then, presto, wear it again when you’re heading out for the night. The built in platform and the soft suede material makes the heel all the more wearable and shouldn’t be dismissed because of “uncomfortable thoughts.” If you’re looking for a more fun summer color than black, then just soon enough we’ll have the “ora” or red-orange color as well. One of our favorite heeled sandals for sure this season, the “Gypsy” can really make you feel like dancing.
Ahh, the ubiquitous pee-toe. In part two of the peep-toe features, we’re showing you another lil’ lovely one from Jeffrey Campbell. In both black (shown below) and grey suede, Jeffrey Campbell’s “Fences” gives the foot a nice lattice pattern to slip into. With a manageable heel height of 2″ (at its highest), the Fences can go with tights or sans tights depending on the weather these days. The cut-out lattice pattern plus the peep-toe design make the shoe a sure fire unique heeled sandal. And the end all deal cincher is the price: $106. With just a peep look at the toe and the cut-out pattern coverage, the sandal offers coverage that plays with the eye. Covered, cut-out, covered, cut-out. We think this is one shoe, you won’t be “on the fence” about this season.
We’re all at that point where March seems unbearably hard to imagine getting through with the weather continuing the way it. Yes, it slowly is on the upswing, but usually not fast enough. And not fast enough to start wearing all the cute peep-toe shoe designs that seem to be seen everywhere. The anticipation is high for when “peep-toe weather” is in full bloom. But thank god, for the trend and style these days of taking a peep-toe and wearing it with tights (genius, who ever came up with that one. . . maybe the Japanese? they’re always ahead of the game!). So you can still not feel any guilt with buying a peep-toe in March even though the cold seems to still push you around. In Part I of our peep-toe features, we’re showing you Jeffrey Campbell’s “Como” peep-toe heel. For $114, the very very very manageable heel comes in a nude leather or a dark navy nubuck at the store. Both leathers are as soft as can be and pairing them with shorts gets everyone a lil’ bit giddy and excited while still thinking practically and seeing the potential the shoes have with tights because of one intrinsic detail: the hole-punch cut-out pattern. Perhaps the second best thing about this season (besides all the peep-toe) is the many, many cut-out designs seen these days. The cut-out pattern combined with the double buckles has this shoe screaming endless possibilities for outfits. So if you need a nude shoe for the season (it is one of the IT colors) and are lookin’ to add and get in on the peep-toe fetish, then come see the Como for yourself.
There are certain lyrics we will always live by, but then there’s some we don’t pay mind to like, “Hit the Road Jack” because for us we’re all about keeping our very own Shoe Market’s designed “Jack” shoe in stock. Back by insane popular demand is Shoe Market for Jeffrey Campbell’s “Jack” because you guys asked for it! So we got back on our shelves the whiskey and black colors. For $130, the wing tipped stacked heel hits al the right notes because of it’s detail (see the punctured leather design below), the comfort (since we designed it, we only design comfort) and for it’s one-of-kind factor. For all these reasons, Lucky magazine picked the shoe up back in their May issue of this year. If you can’t make it into our store, you have the chance to get it online, right here. Still the same price, but just more convenient. We’re just not quite done with our “Jack”, so the only way our Jack will be hittin’ the road we’ve decided, will be on your feet.
We’ve all heard of Fellini’s infamous movie, La Dolce Vita, and while some of us might not have seen it (I, personally have just embarked on the viewing of the 2 hour and 50 min. film. . .) we all get its meaning, and the idea that Italians and most Europeans for that matter have been able to embrace, the sweet life.
So, in tune with what makes up the REAL sweet life, is shoe brand, Dolce Vita. And we’ve decided to stock their stud collection that they’ve got goin’ on since studs are all the rage and craze these days.
Josh is graciously holding our two stud styles, the Brylee is in his left hand (pictured right) and the Wesley is pictured in his right hand (pictured on the left). They look hot against Josh’s purple draped shirt.
While the proportions might be playing tricks on your eyes, the shoe style is not. Check out the solid heel on this bad boy of a bootie. The Wesley can sit in the palm of your hand too for only $135.
Not quite into heels? Want a flat boot but with studs? Then the Brylee is for you and is a little less hard on your wallet than the Wesley at $125.
And if you’re not into studs at all, we have the Dolce Vita “Carly” heel in right now that is all about ties and straps, if that’s more your thing. Come in and see it for yourself.
The English have many o’ funny words in their language, and Americans seem to love to take after their lingo as well as their accent. Let’s all admit the attractive quality the English accent possesses. So, want to vamp up a shoe? Name it with an English name, hence Seychelles direction with their Oxford heel: the Blimey. For $110, you can have an extra high heel that looks a little bit English with the Oxford (old school) look. With tights, leg warmers, or skinny jeans, the English look plays out best with this “Blimey!” of a heel. We have the look in black and in clay, both work well with contrasting tights, we think. And even if you’re missing an element to that Halloween costume, you could find the missing link in this shoe. Happy early Halloween!
“Reinvent your reality” is the tag line to Camper, the European shoe company, that has been around to see some shoe decades pass by. They truly believe you can change your perception of reality (or at least your shoe and walking reality) when you start wearing their shoes. They offer some funky styles for both men and women, yet maintain the comfort of a good sole whether you have a high arch, a flat foot, or an abnormally wide foot. They cover it all. So to make sure we’re covering it all this season, we ordered up a handful of styles both in boots and heels for you gals. And for you guys, we also didn’t forget about you. Your Camper post is still to come, so stay tuned for Pt. II. But for all you ladies, tell us which style you’re diggin’ the most, we love to hear crowd pleasing favorites.
The “Rachael” comes with a solid, thick beech-wood heel and a soft black leather for $170.
The “Rachael” in teal suede offers the same chunky heel (it’s practically a wedge, but a bit cuter) and for the same price of $170.
The “Isabella” offers a classic retro look. We love love the color combo this boot has got goin’ on. Part leather and part suede, the Isabella is worth the comfort and the look for $320.
The “Rachael” boot offers the same beech-wood heel as the above Rachael dress shoe, but this time it’s worked into Camper’s soft brown color of a comfort boot. And for easy slip-on and slip-off maneuvering, there’s a zipper to make life a lil’ bit easier. For an all leather boot, $330 is not that much for an ever-lasting boot.
For all those wild cats out there, we’ve got some new heels for you. Patterns are always a great way to make a statement, and they don’t need to be left out of the shoe realm. We always like to keep something spicy on the shelves for those girls who like to have a wild night(s) out. And Jeffrey Campbell is just the shoe man to make that happen.
The “Kano Cheetah” is a sexy cat call for the feet with the magenta pink inside to contrast with the brown pattern on the outside. And for authenticity sake, the material feels a little bit soft and a bit fur-like. This little heel goes for $106.
The cheetah’s animal heel mate is the “Kano Zebra” heel for the exact same price. Those of you who are more partial to a white and black pattern and find yourself more in tune with the zebra in the animal kingdom can go for this choice.
Yet, if you’re the gal that just can’t seem to take it to the animal level with your shoes, we’ve made sure to carry a simple black heel for all your day-to-evening wear needs. Priced the same at $106, you’ll be sure to get ample amount of wear with these heels through all season. Put it with leggings, pair it with colored tights, or go oh-so-bare legged until it gets to the real cold temperatures.
Jeffrey Campbell heels know how to get a “meeeeoooow” out of a heel.
