Habitat is my new favorite online shoe store! I have spent many a night putting off sleep so I can lust after Habitat’s well-edited selection of shoes. And if you live near Leawood, Kansas, you can frequent Habitat’s brick and mortar store (4569 West 119th Street, Leawood, KS 66209, Phone: 913-451-6360). I have purchased shoes from the website, and I was impressed with the service, especially as I needed to exchange a pair for a different size. Habitat’s current selection of shoes features so many great pairs that it’s hard to choose a favorite – so I’ve picked five!
For a slightly lower price-point, Seychelles Gypsy heels in orange (also available in black) make a great summer shoe. I could totally see myself wearing these heels with cute summer dresses. $95 at Habitat.
I’ll spend much of the summer outside being “active,” so I need a comfortable shoe. Bensimon’s canvas tennis shoes are a bit more fashionable than most – and I love red (also available in brown). $55 at Habitat.
(Yes, I’m planning on making this a regular blog feature. Why do you ask?)
I got these from Shopbop during their super-fab sale, which is still going on, btw (hey, where are you going? come back! I’ll have more pretty shoes….oh, never mind, I’ll see you later, I guess). They were 70% off so I didn’t think twice about snagging them, especially as they were one of the rare items in my size. As of now they’re sold out (check it out if you don’t believe me!) and I can’t find them elsewhere on the net, not yet, anyway. No matter, as they’re mine now, all mine, mah preshus! And I love them to death. Softly padded, delicately manufactured, hip and comfy and a tidbit unexpected, these had ME written all over them (and no, you can’t have them). “Coclico” is French for “poppy flower (spelled “coquelicot”), and the brand was created by Frenchwoman Sandra Canselier. Watch out for their styles, and by all means check the current Shopbop sale (these laser-cut flats winked at me, too, but alas, they’re not in my size).
