Bottega Veneta Denim and Leather Sandals: Quality Control

These shoes are a combination of denim, leather, and wood, but more than anything, they are HOT. When it comes to shoes and bags, denim is a tricky material.

Bottega Veneta Architectural Leather Slingback Wedge Sandals: Hell Bent for Leather

If it’s starting to sound like I feel Bottega Veneta can do no wrong, then it’s probably because I do! More like I’ll believe it when I see it.

Style Snob: Leave Them In a Holidaze

Holiday dressing is like no other form of decking yourself out. It’s a time to go all out and show off your spirit (when it comes to both fashion and the festivities).

Sandals have gotten so strapped out, over-buckled, and pumped up over the last few years that it’s easy to forget how good negative space can look. Sleek and ladylike describe these pared-down python wedges by Bottega Veneta. The delicately placed straps and slender wedge accentuate the foot in a refined, elegant way. Admittedly, you have […]
