Plus Style: 10 Shoe Sites for Size 10+

summer-shoes-1-main

Feet size sometimes receives the same discrimination that clothing size does. The “average” shoe size for the “average” woman is said to be 8 – 8 1/2. However, I have more friends (tall and short), that don’t fit into this average. I feel like I know more people that wear either much smaller sizes or larger sizes, myself included. Since my feet are on the larger side this post is dedicated to my fellow 10+ footers.

Converse: the perfect shoe to wear with anything, anywhere.

You know that Sunday when you really do not want to wear heels, or that Tuesday when you refuse to wear flats? Those days are the days when you can wear Converse, flat enough to not be heels but you can dress them up so it doesn’t even look like you’re wearing sneakers.

It’s #FootwearFriday!! One of the reasons that I love footwear is because it’s one of the easiest accessories to use to update or upgrade any outfit. Throw on a white tee and jeans with a colorful funky heel and your look is automatically fashion forward!
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure to attend the 2015 FFANY Shoe Show and Spring 2016 Trend Presentation.  I’m always interested in seeing the newest shapes, innovative materials, and new brands within accessories and in the industry as a whole. So you can imagine how exciting it was to be invited to see the upcoming trends in the footwear industry!

Fall Into Fall

As I opened my front door today, the wind whispered, rustling the leaves on my trees in the front yard. Gosh! Autumn has arrived. Just the thought of having to go out and buy new clothes is daunting, yet upon flipping through the pages of Elle, the October issue, I had a change of thought. This year may actually be fun!

So I started out by ordering a pair of fall/winter boots from JustFab.com and boy when they arrived I was pretty happy. Check out my video below and then go get yourself a pair.

Flat Fetish

“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world”; Very aptly said by the great Marilyn Monroe, right shoes even at the wrong time with the wrong attire can overturn the situation, such is the power they wield.

Stilettos, wedge heels, and platforms are every girls’ magic wand, no matter how painful they might get, they will stand tall with a smile on their face; however times are changing, slow and steady but I can see the change. Comfort is finally starting to gain a little bit of importance when it comes to footwear and guess who the happiest person is- ME of course! Do not get me wrong- I do love them 7-inches killer heels, but I also beg for comfort, especially on a rainy/icy day, when one has to walk miles, stay on feet for entire day/night, flats come to my rescue!

Sophia Webster Shoes + Revlon Lipstick = Fun and Flirty Footwear

Feature image

Suede, it’s a material more commonly associated with shoes than with make-up. However, that was not that the case when shoe designer Sophia Webster was inspired by Revlon’s latest lipstick collection for a new line of footwear. Suede by Sophia is fun and flirty heels based off of lipstick shades.

So why, then, was I so shocked to hear of Webster’s, latest collection, named Suede by Sophia? Well, for starters, the shoes in the collection are not made exclusively from suede; there is plenty of glossy patent leather and vinyl involved too. Webster, who happens to be the shoe designer of the moment, has collaborated with cosmetics giant, Revlon, to produce a capsule collection inspired by the rich and sumptuous colors of Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipstick range. Confused? Well, allow me to explain.

Oh Glorious SHOES!

Cadiz feature

OMG!

Oh Glorious Shoes!

The warm weather is almost here and I am so gushing over heels. Yes my summer heels.

I wear heels from Fall, Winter, to Spring and Summer. I love heels and how they lengthen your body and give you a new platform to view the world from. So did you see JustFab.com lately? They are doing a great job, I might say myself, on their new summer collection of heels. Bright colours mixed with patterns and prints. Heels are to be worn with everything, in my opinion, even with a bathing suit if you are headed to the pool or to the beach this summer. Its sexy, alluring, an attention getter in every way (hint). Look below at some of my favourites.
