Mad About Mules

Since my current casual/minimal style feels like I transported back to the 90s — high-rise jeans, lots of easy tees, every oversized button-down I can get my hands on, all the denim — it’s only fitting that I’m on totally on board the mule trend. The slide-on shoes made a big comeback this year, with iterations in every color, fabrication, and heel-style. I’ll take mine in a colorful suede or neutral leather with a little block…

Summer Lovin’

I’ve been lusting after these studded leather sandals since I spotted them on @studiomcgee’s Instagram way back at the start of the summer, so I was pumped to find them in a Hautelook sandal sale recently. Patience and discounts, amen. Can someone ‘splain to me how we’re already in the last week of July?

restyle: DIY studded wedge booties

Back in my early days of blogging, I remember a DIY project on another blog (sadly whose URL I cannot recall) in which the blogger transformed a pair of basic black platforms by covering the entire wedge base in brass thumbtacks. I ran out and bought a pack of thumbtacks immediately, only to have them sit in my supply stash for more than…

on second chances. and glitter!

Last month, my real-life BFF and DIY maven, Anne, revamped a pair of stilettos on her blog, Wobisobi. The shoes in question were in great condition, but had an unfortunate run-in with a parking grate resulting in a ravaged heel. [Collective sighs from readers as they fondly remember favorite heels that met a similar fate.] She covered the damaged heel with a clever coat of glitter that camouflaged all traces of the grate incident, and in turn, made…
