5 Days Until the Warehouse Sale

We just completed all of our final markdowns before the Warehouse Sale. A good portion of our sale styles are included in this Final Pairs Facebook album. At 60% off, sizes are going quickly.

How to Wear: Sabina by Michael Kors

This week on Alexandria Stylebook, we were asked a question about cage heels. The reader thought that the style might cut her off at the ankle, making her look shorter and disproportionate.

That’s right: for those who didn’t know yet, Lyndsay, our manager, is pregnant. And no, we do not yet know if it is a boy or girl–although we certainly took bets on what it will be […]

Birkenstocks are back. Birkenstocks are back?

I finally had the time to catch up on the stack of magazines that have stared at me longingly for several months now. Really, I should make it a point to read them more regularly–it’s research, right? It was enlightening to read so many in one sitting; I now have a better picture of what […]

The New Nude

The other day, we put together a list of our latest arrivals for social media purposes and we realized how many nude shoes we have in store right now–everything from casual flats to evening-appropriate. Typically, style experts recommend owning a pair of nude shoes because they seem to disappear on your foot, thereby lengthening the […]
