The chunky heel trend of 2016 is a godsend for this clumsy chick! They’re stable and don’t sink into damp spring grass…what’s not to love? Below are my three favorites for work, play and party:
John Fluevog Vivian ($249)
Also available in sky blue/white. This cult-classic brand from Canada is known for funky designs and extreme comfort. They’re shoes that will last a lifetime and always spark a conversation!
M. Gemi – The Pera ($298)
In luggage, grey and black. Love the grey for transitioning into spring and the black is simply bitchin’ all year round.
M. Gemi – The Castello ($298)
In black, natural, raspberry and jade. Lucite and lace stunners for a spring/summer wedding or charity event!
The embroidered top is the first piece that caught my eye when creating this look. Also available in a black-white print, the feel is a little boho without being overly folksy. A tailored Bermuda short and lace up espadrilles complete this ensemble while the straw and wood accessories add additional texture and interest.
The company founders created Cuyana on the philosophy of owning fewer, better things.
More on that outlook in weeks to come!
Cuyana focuses on clean-lined, quality designs for women and has instituted a philanthropic “lean shipping” option at checkout. With this option, Cuyana will send customers a reusable bag to fill with unwanted clothing items. When you mail the bag back (with included shipping label), the donated clothing is given directly to women in need. Additionally, for every donation you make, you receive a $10 credit towards your next purchase!
A few favorite Cuyana pieces are highlighted below:
The Mini Saddle Bag ($195 in black leather; clay or rose in suede/leather mix) is on-trend this season and the perfect addition for spring as street fairs, festivals and farmer’s markets swing in to action. Keep your essentials nearby and your load to a minimum! A standard size Saddle Bag is available for $295 in four colors.
Timeless, lady-like, elegant…that is the Silk Sleeveless Shirtdress ($245 in black or white; long-sleeve version available for $250 in four colors).
For travel or at-home, the Classic Alpaca Cape ($195 in black, grey, camel) makes a great layering piece. Love the belted look as a chic coverlet for a slip dress on a cool evening or, for a more boho feel, layered with a tee and paired with crops or skinnies.
