Brand Spotlight: Dolce Vita

I heart Dolce Vita shoes because they are unique, moderately priced, and you can usually find something for everyone:

Martin + Osa at ShopStyle

Dolce Vita 'Cajun Gladiator' Sandal for $140 @ Martin & Osa

I'm not usually a fan of the wood heel but there is just something about these! I like the intersting cone shape of the heel + the leather looks so soft!

Free People at ShopStyle

Who doesn't love a fun gladiator sandal? They even zip up the back- YES!

Dolce Vita at ShopStyle

Back from Alaska...

with a new pair of shoes, of course! I bought these Moccasins at the Saxon Village in Ketchikan, Alaska:






Aren't they fantastic? They are handbeaded on moosehide. One of the Native Saxon Women told me she's had hers for 22 years! I figured they would be great slippers and a lasting souvenir from my Alaskan Adventure.

So glad to be back. Keep an eye out for regular postings!

I Heart Flats

I love gorgeous and fun flats. Whenever I'm feeling "blahh" in a pair of jeans and a tee, I just grab a pair of pretty flats and they make me feel so much better. Here are some of the flats I'm loving right now:

J.Crew at ShopStyle

J.Crew Patent Tortoise Ballet Flats for $125 @ J.crew

The patent tortoise print adds a little "umph" to the standard ballet flat. These statement shoes will carry you from summer 2009 through spring 2010.


Lanvin at ShopStyle

Lanvin Embroidery Flats on sale for $285 from $570 @ Zoe

You all know how I feel about flower and bow embellishments- LOVE THEM! The grey is a perfect color for fall and winter + they look so comfy. There is only one size left (Eur- 37)! If you are a 37 this would be a great time to use tip #1 for justifying your shoe purchase. Happy Shopping!

Belle by Sigerson Morrison at ShopStyle

Belle by Sigerson Morrison on sale for $135 from $270 @ The Outnet

Look at that color- Yum! Red is a big color for fall both in clothes and shoes. Get 'em before they sell out!

Chinese Laundry at ShopStyle

Chinese Laundry 'Citrus' for $59 @ Zappos

Ankle straps are sexy! These are just basic black flats but there is just something about the ankle strap I heart!



In Pursuit of another great flat,

A new appreciation for Uggs

Whether you love them or hate them, I think we can all agree that they are comfy and warm! I’ve grown a new appreciation for Uggs since being in Alaska. 42 degree weather isn't really conducive to wearing cute and stylish shoes. Trust me- I tried and my toes froze! That being said, right now is a great time to get a pair of Uggs for the fall/winter, especially if you hit up the Ugg outlets- they have great sales during the summer. You can also find them online:

UGG at ShopStyle

Ugg Women's Ultra Short for $200 @ UGG Australia


Obviously if you live somewhere with cold winters, you know the amazing warmth and comfort that Uggs provide. But if you live somewhere with mild winters, you may want to try them out around the house as a super comfy slipper or have them available for cold vacation spots... like Alaska!


In Pursuit of warm toes for the rest of my vaca,
