Archive for the ‘Kork-Ease Shoes’ Category
Recently I have become obsessed with buying vintage, or vintage inspired, dresses. All of my free time seems to be consumed by trolling thrift stores, boutiques, and online shopping sites. Now that I have a healthy collection of vintage dresses, I need sandals that complement the vintage aesthetic I’m working. Rising to this challenge, I’ve selected some of my favorite summertime sandals.
As a fan of Kork-Ease shoes (I already own a pair of their Ava sandals – and they are so comfortable!), I’ve been thinking about buying a pair with a cork wedge.
Since I’m a devotee of comfortable shoes, I love Dansko’s. They have a great selection of sandals with a heel, and heels do look great with summer dresses.
If you’re working a 70′s vibe with a vintage dress, clogs are a must have shoe.
During and after college I lived in Spain, and during my time there I fell in love with Campers. I still turn to Campers for a European mix of style and comfort.
I am always drawn to perfectly flat shoes. These sandals by Proenza Schouler are a great reinterpretation of the gladiator sandal trend (something I never got into).
Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody! And how do we express our love for you? By sending some shoe-love your way, that’s how!
Bluefly is having a President’s Day Sale starting today until Monday, 20% off mostly everything, and you have got, got, got to check their shoe selections. The choices are pretty fabulous and the prices quite nice, but wait, there’s more! I had to rub my eyes and double-check this, because OMG, these prices are not to be believed. Their Lucky Shop for the Ultimate Closet exclusive features deals you have to grab–or you’ll never forgive yourself.
First up, they have a variety of the rejuvenated famous Kork-Ease platforms. Retailing for $165 and up, you can now get them in a variety of colors and sizes for $25 (that’s twenty-five, yup).
But the real savings come when you look at the Pedro Garcia fabulous collection of evening shoes. I don’t wear heels but when they only cost $50 as opposed to their regular price of $300, $425, and $425–I’m inclined to buy them just because they’re so pretty to look at:
Happy Valentine Day’s Shopping, shoe lovers!
I don’t mind a little chunk on my platforms, but this is getting ridiculous. I know, Kork-Ease are back-in-fashion these days, and good for them, but I think this particular model demonstrates why they were out of fashion in the first place. This Kork-Ease Carmen Platform sandal ($195 at Free People Boutique) has a 4 1/2 inch heel, which means that they have at least a 3-inch platforms, judging by the looks of it, which, I’m sorry, but it’s way too high. I for one would start feeling a little vertigo there and would immediately want to get back on the ground–where I belong.
