Indulge in Cuteness: Coordinated Winter Shoes for Mom and Tot

From building snowmen to running errands, depending on the activity you have planned, it’s only practical to coordinate your footwear with your tot’s shoes during the winter. Going totally matchy-matchy is way too much, especially on the wallet, and while you can store your pricier pair away for next year, you don’t have to make the same investment on your tot’s, who will grow out of hers by Valentine’s Day.

Top 5 BROgues: Brogues Before Bros

I have three brothers, and I grew up a tomboy, until I discovered boys. But I still loved borrowing their clothes into my teenage years, and now I often steal my 10-year-old son’s cute little sweaters (to his dismay).

Modern Mules: The Height of Fashion

If there’s one shoe of the season that I’m living for, it’s the platform mule. I wore them pretty much every day in the ’90s in a variety of colors and styles; a certain pair in particular was the standout, though – Ferragamos that I kept until they literally fell apart on the streets of NYC.

Clunky ’90s Mary Janes Make a Comeback: Back to Schoolgirl

Though it’s been the ‘70s show in fashion lately, definite shades of ‘90s cool have infiltrated – and no trend from that decade appeals to my sartorial sensibilities more than the chunky Mary Jane. Courtney Love’s baby doll look may not be hot right now, but these shoes most certainly are. Today’s version is sleeker than its predecessor, suggesting a higher sense of sophistication (grunge, these are not).

With the summer’s number one destination being Mykonos, Greece, it’s not surprising that the season’s must-have sandal originates nearby. Handmade in Athens, Elina Linardaki’s boho-style shoes make you want to book a trip to the Mediterranean ASAP.

Top 10 Black Tie Shoes: Bow Down to the Bow

I’ve always said that ankle straps are like seat belts for your feet (and we could certainly use those – safety first!), but with these shoes, designers are taking that functional feature and tying it up in a pretty bow.
