A New Point of View

3 Sep

Introducing…. The Work-To-Weekend Wonder!

Pointy Toe Flats!  I am sure you have seen these around either  on celebrities or in your every day life!

Add a splash of retro glam to any outfit with a pair of pointy toe flats.  Ballet Flats and other well-loved styles are elegant with the addition of even a small pointed toe.

This first pair is more basic to break us all in!


These classic flats are ideal for all your formal events.
– Ballet flat.
– Pointy toe. $65 at Aldo

This next pair adds a little metallic (ok, a lot!) and a cut out side… Also at Aldo!

– Ballet flat.
– Pointy toe.  $50 at Aldo

There are a ton of options out there! You can go even pointier!

For more dramatic and edgy looks, choose shoes with sharply pointed toes. Flats with pointed toes are great for shorter women or anyone who wants distinct style without wearing heels.


Sleek, uncomplicated lines define a pointed-toe flat in supple leather.

  • Leather upper/synthetic lining and sole.
  • By Steven by Steve Madden; imported. $88.95 at Nordstrom

Want a comfortable casual shoe? Slip-on flats with pointed toes are a great option for cute weekend wear. Pair slip-on pointy toe flats in pretty animal print with black jeggings and an oversized jewel tone sweater for a chic street outfit.

For an eye-catching look, slip into a pair of slingback flats with pointed toes.

Try this pair by Jeffrey Campbell at Free People!

  Blue Suede shoes are HOT!   I’ve seen much pointier sling backs, but the blue suede and studs just grabbed my attention and you can see why!

Take the vintage-chic feel to the next level with a pair of timeless oxford flats. These adorable pointy toe flats feature a shape and look similar to oxford shoes, including small laces and a leather upper. Some oxford flats also have the same styling as men’s wingtip saddle shoes, offering versatile two-tone styling. Pair two-tone oxford flats with a full black skirt and a polka dot blouse for an adorable retro flair. Oxford flats offer a sophisticated feel and can be worn in a multitude of options!

Here is a studded pair at Macy’s.


All-over studs add pop and shine to the classic oxford shape of Madden Girl’s Julissa flats.
  • Imported
  • Man-made/fabric upper
  • Almond closed-toe oxford flats with all-over rhinestone studs $49 Macy’s

Loafer flats with pointed toes are another great option to wear to work. These flats resemble men’s loafers in a slimmer, more feminine form. Slip into a pair of pointed toe loafer flats, opaque black tights and a gray pencil skirt for a stylish office ensemble. Complete the look with a silk dress shirt or ruffly blouse.

Check out this pair by BCBGMAXAZRIA!

“Tille” Loafer


Diminutive studs add geometric interest to a smoking-slipper loafer updated with an of-the-moment pointy toe and overlasted sliver wedge.

  • Leather upper/synthetic lining and sole.
  • By BCBGMAXAZRIA; imported.
  • Salon Shoes. $250 at Nordstrom

The greatest thing about pointy toe flats is the comfort and versatility they provide!

Let me know how you do!

Classic Statement Shoe

2 Sep

I recently saw photos of Mariah Carey wearing some pretty hot shoes….
Mariah Carey was seen wearing Valentino ‘Garavani’ lace peep-toe pumps at the premiere of Lee Daniels’ The Butler at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City on Monday, August 5.  Mariah appears in the historical drama alongside big names like Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, and Forest Whitaker, who were also present at the event.

Presenting the statement shoe you’ve been searching for!

Lace couture bow pumps from Valentino that Mariah was wearing:

New York Premiere of Lee Daniels' The Butler

I felt inspired to see where I could find these sleek shoes!  I generally almost always start at Nordstrom!  I actually found 2 pairs that were so very close!

This first pair is almost identical, but they are obviously not as high….  They are missing the platform, but still very respectable at a heel height of 2 1/4″.  (probably much more comfortable for most people too!)


A signature bow adds charming dimension to a peep-toe pump shaped from sheer lace.
Approx. heel height: 2 1/4″.
Measurements taken from size 36.5 EU and may vary slightly by size.
Textile upper/textile and leather lining/leather sole.
Made in Italy.
Salon Shoes. $895 at Nordstrom  They are also available at Neiman Marcus for $975.

This next pair isn’t as similar, but these Rockstud sandals had the height and the ankle strap is pretty hot!

Lovely in lace yet strong in stance, this Valentino platform sandal covers a bold block heel and platform with romantic details to add a hint of boudoir allure to your evening.


  • Intricate lace wraps impeccable femme around a buoyant ankle-strap sandal.

    • Approx. heel height: 5 1/2″ with 1″ platform (comparable to a 4 1/2″ heel).
    • Lace and leather upper/leather lining and sole.
    • Adjustable strap with buckle closure.
    • Made in Italy.
    • Salon Shoes. $1045 at Nordstrom also available at Neiman’s for the same price.

    Mariah’s shoes are very romantic, feminine and classic!

    The wear-with-all pump with a distinctive touch—a signature Valentino bow!  Trimmed in lustrous satin, floral lace boasts alluring sheerness and airy feel.

    What do you think?  Would you wear either of the above styles?

    Not sure you can go wrong wearing Valentino!!

Jump in Feet First!

29 Aug

Whenever I get bummed about summer coming to an end, I always look for what will make me excited about the new season.

Usually, once I start seeing all the awesome boots out there it not only eases the pain, but gets me excited! I love open toed shoes, but I really love boots!

So today I thought I would round up some boots I have spotted throughout the Mall for you!

I spotted these cute wedges at the gorgeous new Sperry store!

Chic meet sporty. Every girl needs a bit of a lift from time to time. Harlow booties deliver with a 3-inch wedge heel, rich colors and animal prints. So whether your kicking back on a casual weekend or kicking it up in the city at night, Harlow will perfectly complete your look.


Military Inspired boots are HUGE for Fall!

I found this crochet moto bootie at Francesca’s!

Move out troops! The Brave Crochet Moto Bootie follows the huge military boot trend while still maintaining femininity with the crochet panels. This combat boot will add some tough girl glam to a sundress with a soft cardi.


I also found these gems at Francesca’s…

The tall pair in the back – Tribal and zippers, always a good choice, combine on the Pink and Pepper Robot Zipper Boot. Brown faux leather straps wrap around the ankle of this flat-soled taupe boot featuring a tribal detail lining the back zipper. Paired with some leggings and a flowy top, this fall boot will become a favorite!

The brown combat boot – Fill your day with surprises in this multi-way combat boot! Lace it up for the traditional look, or unzip the back and fold over the panels to expose the flannel lining at two different heights to go for a laid back edge. The combat boot trend goes with anything right now, so pull out a dress and a blazer and head out!


Here is another combat boot I discovered at Wet Seal…

Stylish and cool boots features include a classic combat faux leather body, side exposed zipper, lace up detailing and a short chunky heel.


You can really take your pick at Buckle!

Lots of lace up, combat, cowboy and riding boot styles! Plus, many edgy studded options!


Aero always has what you need!

Great booties that work great with skirts and dresses!


Nordstrom has a large collection of brand names to choose from.  High quality boots that should last year after year.

I love the color and style of these classic riding boots!

Fun black booties also found at Nordstrom!

So there you have it… a sneak peek at the hottest new fall 2013 arrivals of boots!

Of course there are so many more, but that is just an early sampling for you to get your feet wet!🙂

All boots are NOT created equal! Some are tall while some are short… Some are bold or edgy while others are more neutral for everyday wear.

No matter what it is you are looking for, you will find it at Natick Mall! With so many stores to pick from, you can’t go wrong!

So, go ahead and jump in feet first and find the perfect pair for you! (or two!)

Happy Shopping!

Performance meets Style!

The Sea Kite Leather Sport Moc is the perfectly packable answer for casual weekends on the water and off. Its soles feature Adaptive Wave-Siping™ to help reduce slippage when you need performance and traction on board, while its soft leather and athletic styling make this moc super versatile.


On an icy winter’s day in 1935, Paul Sperry watched in amazement as his cocker spaniel Prince ran across the icy New England landscape without slipping. Sperry, a former naval officer, avid sailor and part-time inventor, had been trying to design a proper shoe to safely navigate the slippery deck of his sloop, Sirocco. Nature and Prince’s paws provided the ultimate answer. 

Tooling a pattern in a rubber outsole similar to the wave-like grooves on Prince’s paws, Paul Sperry created a truly sea-worthy boat shoe. The first Sperry Top-Sider Authentic Original was officially launched and the world’s first boat shoe was born. 

Over 75 Years later, Sperry remains the vanguard of the nautical lifestyle. From the world’s first boat shoe to today’s product collections featuring iconic design details, enduring style and the latest performance technologies, Sperry Top-Sider embodies a passion for the sea and the good life it represents.
