Trend Report: Noral

Last night, a friend and I watched the movie "An Education" starring the lovely Carrey Mulligan as Jenny. The film was set in London in the 60's, and we both immediately in love with the whole look - the scenery, the music, the retro clothes. Young Jenny went from pretty school girl to impossibly chic virtually overnight, and I kept wondering what it was that was pulling her look together so effortlessly. Naturally, all I had to do was turn to her feet: at the base of every one of her sleek and polished outfits was a pair of slingbacks! The Noral are the perfect summer slingback, with their light natural heels and crossed leather straps revealing a sexy peep-toe.

Give spring/summer's super hot prints trend a touch of classic glamour with a patent slingback!

Trend Report: Petrella

One of the major shoe trends for spring and summer is the wedge, and for good reason: they're adorable, they're comfortable and while they are more casual than a stiletto, they're so easy to dress up, too! And what's great about the wedge trend is just how well it works with all of spring's other trends. So grab your own pair of the Petrella and have fun mixing and matching your way through the summer!
