Shoe Mood: Shades of Gold

shades_of_gold

Hello! We hope you are off to a nice week. We here at re-souL are in the mood for metallics in gold, platinum and rose gold. June is the time for graduations, weddings and of course,  the start of summer. A fun way to add some glitz and glamour to your wardrobe is with of course, metallics! They are neutral and can be worn with everything. Dress them up or down, have fun with some gold shine on your feet. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week! All styles available at resoul.com.

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Artist Paolo Ventura

A few weeks ago I had posted about a visit to the shop Nonostante Marras in Milan, Italy. Along with the many things they sell in their boutique, they regularly feature local artists. Back in February I was introduced to artist/photographer Paolo Ventura. Boy, was I smitten.

This Italian born photographer creates scenes that are rich, dreamy and sometimes surreal. He does this by creating miniature sets into which he then places realistic dolls and props ~ then he photographs them. The result is part fantasy, part realism. They are captivating images that take you right into his nostalgic world.

His painstaking attention to detail is what makes them so charming. Ventura creates every detail from start to finish. He chooses the costumes (sometimes designing them himself), makes or sources the props and paints the dioramas. He also becomes part of the picture, putting himself in costumes and posing in front of the camera.

our re-souL manifesto

Hello! It’s been awhile since we’ve posted on our blog. Between holiday sales, clearance sales and just trying to get our head around the idea of 2015, we have neglected this space for a bit, but we’re back! So, happy new year everyone!

We are so grateful for our re-souL community. Thank you for supporting us through the last 12 years! We look forward to 2015 with excitement and optimism and hope you’ll join us. We have lots of fun things planned this year, so stay tuned!

Did you know that we have a manifesto? These are things we have always believed in from the onset when we opened our shoe shop, but only seemed even more appropriate when we decided to design our own shoe collection. So in the spirit of starting the new year on the right foot, so to speak, we thought we would share them with you.
