What about Mules and Clogs?

28 Jul

This is not a rhetorical question. Mules and clogs are still living big right now and are seen in virtually every store you can imagine. And what about the elusive clog mule combo? I’ve seen women from all walks of life wearing some version of it. But this used to be a not so attractive clunky trend years ago that still irks me today. This trend really hasn’t gone away yet?

But I have to admit, there are some beautiful versions out there. Take a look at some of my favorites of this comeback trend. Can you get around this year’s mules and clogs?

GIVENCHY for under $100

10 Sep

I live on an amazing block in Park Slope, Brooklyn. There’s everything you could ask for in a neighborhood that is every bit as convenient as living in Manhattan but with better gems to be found on every block. Fashion is no exception. I would like to bring to the spotlight my favorite consignment store in the BK located on 7th Avenue between 15th and 16th St., M.A.E.

M.A.E. is a small privately owned consignment store that sells high-end designer shoes, accessories and clothing. With even small Manhattan apartments being larger than this store, it is a welcoming environment where everything is at your fingertips. Beautifully crafted handbags and designer shoes and sunglasses are proudly displayed while clothing lines the wall. It is arranged as if you were stepping into your walk in closet and merely picking your favorite pieces to wear that day.

The owner is extremely personable and loves to help out all of her customers find the best items in her small shop. She only accepts better quality designer goods that leave you with nothing but great options for your wardrobe. Labels include but are not limited to Mahnolo Blahnik, Chloe, BCBG, Jimmy Choo and so on. Even with her selective choices in which to sell, you can still find little surprises.

The newest addition to my closet is a BRAND NEW pair of Givenchy brown leather chunky platform sandals.  That’s right, they’re BRAND NEW! For a brand new pair of designer shoes, even on the resale level, you would expect drop at least 3 digits of cash. Well, my wallet only emptied $95 that day. That is at least a $600 savings if having purchased them at Saks Fifth Avenue. These are the perfect sandal for summer through early fall that will go with anything and everything. It will be a staple in my wardrobe that I expect to wear until I run them into the ground. For a pair of sandals that can be worn so often, the measly $95 for Givenchy was worth the price.

I apologize for the poor photography. Notice it isn’t what I blog about 🙂
