Shoe Review: Gucci Marmont Pumps and Kirkwood Beya Flats

I’ve been on a bit of a shoe shopping binge, and found a a few new pairs which I love (and, they’re also incredibly comfortable). Yeah!! Today I’d like to share with you two, starting with these Gucci Marmont pumps.

Just a season or two ago, you’d find me in disbelief over the idea of paying full price for Gucci shoes. I’m probably just a lemming, easy susceptible to the hype over Alessandro Michele, but in any case, I’ve become a recent convert.

Shoes that I could actually walk in all day…that were actually in style (and not trainers)? This doesn’t happen very often. So I enthusiastically handed over my credit card.

What a great combination! I also love the little fringed leather detail. I’m not wild about the gold Gucci logo – but I do feel like they fit in well with the tone of the shoe, and it isn’t too obnoxious. Continue Reading

Wardrobe Staple: Birkenstocks

I mentioned a few weeks ago that one of my favorite pairs of “ugly” walking shoes, a pair of Birkenstock Arizonas, finally gave out the other day. I didn’t realize at the time that Birkenstock can and will apparently…

What I’d Tell Myself: Shoe Edition

In my interviews, one of my favorite questions to ask those I’m featuring is “what they’d go back and tell themselves when they were building a wardrobe and buying this..or that….a decade ago.” I always learn so much from…
