Trend Report: Petra

When you think of the word "neutral", what comes to mind? Maybe things like blue jeans, Switzerland, and the way I feel about the Twilight phenomenon. But I bet most of you think black, brown and navy - the three dark hues that your mother told you go with absolutely everything. Well what about gold? If your favorite gold necklace works with whatever color top you wear, then so will a pair of gold shoes or a gold handbag. It's light, it's fun, it's sexy and best of all, it really does go with everything - just like our Petra shoe. The soft, shimmering gold leather is the star here, sitting pretty atop a unique wedge. So before you reach for another black sandal, or shy away from a metallic shoe for fear you'll never find a chance to wear it, take a look at how one bold, gold shoe can make any outfit shine.
