This is not the first spring where the bootie has been boss. However, it’s the first time I have ever liked it. Now before you think that means you can wear your black leather booties you wore all winter…you can’t. Besides, why would you?

Spring ’14 Shoe Trend: The Hideous Orthopedic Sandal

Can you tell I don’t care for this trend? Not one bit. I can’t fathom spending $600, let alone $60 on a designer pair of hideous orthopedic sandals.

They  are a perfect compromise for those who don’t want to go full-on heavy metal. Check out the fabulous leather with a touch of metallic shoes […]

Spring ’14 Shoe Trend: Cage Sandals

0 by / on March 25, 2014, 12:00 pm / in Blahnik Tonic, Second City Style Blog, Trends

A few of the shoe trends that are hot for Spring ’14 are actually re-trends from last summer. Case in point; the cage sandal. If you didn’t invest in a pair last year, do so now. It’s a little different than the gladiator in that it’s a little more, dare I say…feminine? A hybrid, so top speak. Strappy and woven, […]
