5 reasons to visit re-souL

re-souL shop window


We have so much to tell you! It’s already November and we’ve been so busy getting ready for the holiday season, we thought we should catch you up!

Maybe you have noticed our new look? We recently launched a new website that is better suited to your mobile life. We have designed a website that is clean, inviting, and still easy to navigate. The New Arrivals section is now on the homepage and updates in real time, so you won’t miss out on your favorite things.

Change is never easy, but often inevitable. We thought it was time for a new logo, one that was more cohesive with our brand. Our new shop logo is a better representation of the high quality products that you’ve known to expect from re-souL. Feel free to stop by and have a look, tell us what you think!

We hope to see you during the holiday season. Thanks again for being a part of our re-souL community.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux, Green & Pewter

With the winter months around the corner, and our wardrobes looking very neutral, (not that there is anything wrong with that of course!) we were¬†craving some deep rich colors in our closet. When putting together the fall buy,¬†we didn’t want to limit ourselves to the varietal shades of black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Bordeaux re-souL flats

So with this in mind, we added some fall colors to our very own re-souL collection. Shades of burgundy, green, blue and a little bit of shine with neutrals of pewter and bronze.

Shoe Mood: Pewter re-souL loafers

The great thing about all of these hues and metallics is they go very well with all of those neutrals in your wardrobe! A punch of color to your basic black and grey.

Shoe Mood: Green re-souL oxfords


So what do you think? Think you could break away from your basic black shoe for a new color or metallic instead?

How to Style our Tilda Clog

We in the Pacific Northwest have always liked our clogs. It is an all-season item that can be worn in so many ways, pants, skirts, dresses, etc. With the forecast calling for warmer days this September, we thought we would show you how to style our re-souL “Tilda” clog this season.

Wide Leg Trousers + re-souL clogs
Wide leg trousers are all the rage this season. We like to wear clogs with these pants because they balance out the look of the flared leg. You can still look professional wearing clogs if you keep your pieces tailored and when the weather becomes a bit cooler, you could add a blazer to to ward off the chill.

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.
