Fashion Friday at The Office

One of the things I love about working for a shoe company (aside from it feeding my unhealthy shoe obsession) is seeing all the fabulous outfits the girls around the office have put together. We have a pretty fashionable group of people around here (guys too!) and it's great for inspiration. There is such a wide variety of styles that you're never running out of ideas. For today, I was able to round up 4 super stylish ladies to have their photos taken for the blog-trust me it was difficult. NO ONE wants their picture taken! Thankfully, Emily, Dannie, Lauren and Michelle were kind enough to pose for the camera. After lighting adjustments, lip gloss applications, complaints and more, here are 4 of our office's loveliest!

Emily is our resident vintage girl. She loves pairing dresses with unique accessories and pops of color. Dannie is the newest addition to our team and I always catch her in these lovely, layered ensembles. Style shouldn't have to be hard and Lauren proves it in her easy, floral maxi dress topped off with a cardi and great accessories. Michelle is rocking a pair of skinny jeans and our exclusive Jeset wedges (love her glasses & super chic side ponytail! Makes me miss my long hair!).

So, now that you've seen some of our style, we want to see yours! Send photos of your style to and you may be featured on the blog! Oh, and thanks to Emily, Dannie, Lauren & Michelle. To all the girls who denied me taking their out! You'll be on here eventually!

Fall Fashion Alert

Menswear pieces have been on the radar for awhile now but this year they seem to be especially trending. Oxfords, camel-colored blazers, fedoras and tumbled leather briefcases & messenger bags are making their appearances everywhere. We love them too, especially paired with a sleek tweed pencil skirt and an understated vest.

Fall Must Haves

This weekend I did the much dreaded (and also very necessary) chore of cleaning out my closet. Do I really need that white tank that I have 5 more of, that may or may not have a fixable snag in it? I've had it for 100 years and it's way past it's prime, but still...I may need it one day. Needless to say, Goodwill got a hefty donation. If you're like me and have a hard time getting past those hard-to-give-up items, read this article. It's on de-cluttering your house (applies to closets too). If I denied that I answered yes to any (all) of these questions, it would be a lie. Read The Top 6 Excuses for Clutter

Fortunately, it cleared the way for some new fall pieces to work their way home with me from my shopping trip...ok trips. It was Tax-Free weekend here after all. I stocked up on pencil skirts, cardigans & blazers. Here are some of my favorite Shi pieces I can't wait to get. Some aren't coming in until September though...I suppose I can make it.

Must Have #2: Embellished Clogs. Icora Maple Clog (also in Black) | $44.99 | Available September 2010

Boots for a Rainy Day...

The impending thunderstorm I hear brewing outside reminds me how much fun it used to be to play in a warm, summertime shower as a kid. As much as I still love the rain, I don't necessarily want to run around in it. Don't you hate getting caught running to or from your car, only to find the bottom 10 inches of your pants, SOAKING wet? So inconvenient! Solution: wear these super-stylish rain boots from Capelli! Get the pink/black paisley now or pre-order the black today (sadly not available until September) and splash away girls!

Sneak Peek: Holiday Heels 2010

Had to share these super-sophisticated heels that were being packed up for the Holiday catalog shoot today. Cannot wait for these to come in. Love the vintage feel from the tumbled material (note: I need to stock up on pencil skirts). What would you girls wear these with?

(These are only samples of course! We may change our mind and tweak the color or material just a bit so don't get too attached.)
