Platforms: They're Not Just For Glamour Girls Anymore

Platforms aren't just for glamour girls anymore. Once upon a time you had to be daring and embrace the outrageous to hit the streets in platforms. Talk about hard to walk in too. Most of them are ankle breakers. I used to think that platforms were destined to belong to cat-walk beauties and luscious bomb-shells who could stride around all day looking chic and elegant in these weapons of mass destruction.

Well not any more ladies! Today, platforms come in a variety of choices suited for the more conservative woman. Take this Espadrille by Eric Michael for example. A 3/4" platform allows for a more moderate version of an old favorite. Style and comfort prevail in this versatile summer shoe.

Jelly Sun Sandals - The Hottest Summer Trend!

Nothing brings back the memory of my childhood days like thinking about Jelly's. I had to have a pair. Mine were pink. I loved that I could see my toes through my shoes. I felt like a princess when I wore them.

I'm happy to say that modern jelly sandals are much more fashionable and comfortable. Our Grendha Sun Sandal is our fastest selling, hottest summer trend this season. Sexy, comfortable and affordable they are flying off the shelves.

We just brought in a new color: bronze! So spray on the fake tan, roll up your skirts and get out there in a brand new pair of jellies! The 80's are back baby.

Black and White: A Perfect Match

With spring upon us, beautiful colors are appearing everywhere: on blooming trees, dyed Easter eggs, and, of course, shoes.

But never fear, for timeless black and white combinations do not need to be tucked away in order to make room for these new, beautiful colors of spring.

In every shape- from sexy cut-out heels to sweet flats- this classic combination looks better than ever!!

After all, black and white combinations will never go out of style. They are far too classic and effortlessly versatile. You can easily make a black and white outfit cute and flirty with a sweet pair of black flats, or playful and sexy with a cut-out high heel (exquisite red-hot lipstick optional).

So if the colors of spring aren't quite your style, then perhaps black and white are right up your alley. Pastels are not, by any means, a requirement for spring-- unless you love them!

After all, in fashion, there is only one rule: There are no rules!

Enjoy the sunshine!

Put Some Spring in Your Step...

At long last, we believe it is safe to announce that spring is finally here!

Now while we (Alex and Kerry) usually love the timeless look of black-and-white combinations, the warm weather seems to at last be pulling us out of our comfort zones.

Although black-and-white will always remain a classic look, we also understand the important contribution that color can give an outfit-- especially when that color is presented in a beautiful heel by some of our favorite shoe designers!

Would you like to tone down a girly dress? Try adding a green and blue hued high heel. Would you like to complement a multi-colored floral dress? A beautiful purple pump may be just the thing.

There is no need to shy away from bright colors any longer! No matter what you would like to wear, colorful hues can easily help you and your wardrobe make an effortless transition into spring and summer.

Enjoy the sunshine!

On the Street...

On display, the Faryl Robin "Omni" boot is impeccably chic, shiny, and all-around desirable.

But, when seeing a shoe on display, one always wonders, "Yes... but what will I actually wear it with?"

Here, our fellow Village darling Kerry shows us just how sexy the "Omni" can be. Worn against a black-and-white palate, the "Omni" boot is incredibly wearable and extremely hot. A black skinny jean easily tucks into this tall boot, adding an amazing elongating effect to any pair of legs.

Today, Kerry brought out the Rock n' Roll in the "Omni" boot, but the great thing about this boot is that it can easily translate into any look- from a Western-inspired sun dress to a boot cut jean.

Today we definitely learned that when it comes to wearing the "Omni" boot, the sky is the limit!
