The ADENA sandal is a must have for destination weddings

With warm weather fast approaching and Spring break on the horizon, we would like to share two vacation must-have styles from the Isolá Spring 2013 collection. The ADAR is a standout style with exotic studded detailing and a subtle 1 inch wedge. This unique ankle strap sandal is available in three neutral colorways and is the perfect match for a bold patterned Spring look.

The ADENA sandal, a reigning favorite, has been reintroduced in new colors for Spring 2013. Available in five lust-worthy hues, this style features luxe metallic accents and a 3/4 inch gold plated heel for the perfect lift. The braided ankle wrap detail gives this Grecian thong an updated look. With both styles retailing for under $100, the ADAR and ADENA are both on trend and accessible. IsolaAdar IsolaAdena1

Bridal Shoes by Toms buy one, give one

The TOMS Wedding Collection is a great option for the bride and groom who want comfort and to do a ‘good deed’ without blasting it (even though I’m not sure why you wouldn’t want to tell people).  If you don’t know the story, in 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. To date, TOMS has given over one million pairs of new shoes to children through giving partners around the world.

After an extremely successful regular shoe line, they have branched out to include a wedding collection and I hear a collective sigh from brides around the world.  Oh, maybe that was me.  There are shades of glitter, and grosgrain to match just about every bridal dress option.  The guys have totally manly leather and velvet that will complete their outfit handsomely.  No matter what they both have comfort and isn’t that the way you want to start your new life together…in comfort?

At an affordable price you could even buy them as your wedding gift for your bridal party.  What makes them a great eco-shoe company is that large selections of their shoes are both Made from Recycled and Sustainable Materials AND/OR Vegan (so there are no animal products in the shoes at all).  OF course there are some that are leather (men’s).

A future trend (especially for summer weddings), more and more couples will be wearing TOMS, not only because it’s a company that cares about children, but because they care about comfort for everyone.

Loeffler Randall launches a bridal shoe collection

Everywhere you look these days, someone one or some brand is now “in the bridal business”.  I’m seeing so many, that it’s confusing and frustrating me.  What’s not news (even though they have just launched a bridal collection) is Loeffler Randall is the queen of shoe style.

Loeffler Randall was born out of designer Jessie Randall’s quest to find the shoes that she wanted to wear but could not find – shoes that possessed an understated elegance, were well made, and undeniably feminine.

After outfitting brides in past seasons, Jessie Randall, creative director and designer, decided it was time to bring Loeffler Randall’s chic, downtown aesthetic to the bridal market to respond to the many requests received for a bride’s special day.

There are picks for every type of bride including those looking for a vintage aesthetic, to whimsical, to edgy and of course the traditional.  You can also go the range from flats to booties to stilettos in whites, silvers and nudes, and fabulous textures like metallic snake-skin.   I especially love that she has some cute flats that are perfect for that beach or garden wedding.  Kiss those flip-flops good-by!
