spring shoe preview!

Yesterday Emily and I attended the Spring 2013 Michigan Shoe Mart where we met with all of our favorite Mid-west footwear vendors. We ordered lots and lots of new spring styles and fun colors for us to dream about over winter.

Our first stop was the Fly London showroom. Fly London has become the main shoe line here, so we were really anxious to see what’s in store for next year. It didn’t take us long to select new styles we are confident you are going to love! Introducing the Yoda sandal in black, green, and olive, the Yale slip-on in deep red that’s arriving  this fall, and the Yaffa gladiator sandal in pistachio green. They all feature the famously comfortable Fly London footbed with stacked heel and the fabulous unique look of Fly London.

We discovered Pikolinos in the same showroom. Handmade in Spain, these shoes are gorgeous and comfortable and way way way eye-catching . . . and did I say comfortable? Yes indeed!  Emily and I did not want to take them off our feet and neither will you!

Get ready for the Gandía Strappy heal in bluejean and the sweet slip-on in salmon, both with an awesomely cute square toe.


We found ourselves being pulled back to the Pikolinos showroom at the end of the day and picked up two more styles: the Praga open-toed clog in black/brandy and the Strappy sandal in brown/black. Comfort like you cannot believe, cuteness like you cannot believe, so excited to wear them in the spring you cannot believe!

On our way to the Bos. & Co. showroom, we decided to take a peek at the fun and funky styles El Naturalista had to offer . . . and we did not leave empty-handed!

This sexy Senda shoe in lima and the sophisticated Croche shoe in antique black are going to be big hits when flowers start popping out of the ground next March. Again, comfort and style galore!

We finally made it to Bos. & Co. and decided to get two completely different styles in the oh-so-comfortable Bionatura line: the adorable flower-y Bambino sandal and the Berlina wedge in verde. More comfort and great stylin’ shoes for you to get excited about next spring!

After a quick lunch break, we decided to mosey on over to the sock showrooms.  We uncovered several adorable knee highs from Sweet Marcel and Anna Sui as well as three pairs of funky and colorful tights! You will be lovin’ our selections this fall girls!!

We saved the best for last and visited our friend Jessica at OTBT where we found spring/summer comfort for you: the Crestview sandal in moss. And for right now, the Emporia boot in black leather with a great fit and even greater look.
