I have always been drawn into Mark Rothko’s paintings. The subtlety of color, the depth of layers and the mood they evoke, how do you not envelop yourself into his work?  It is a little how I feel when I look at these shoes. The texture, the colors and the rich tones that you can only achieve from making shoes from suede or nubuck.  Do you see the similarities?

Fall 2013 Color Story: Deep Green

As a fashion color, GREEN continues to trend this Fall.  We’ve covered this color in past seasons but this season’s green is a deep dark hue. Green as in the color of the deep sea or dark dense forest. Shades like dark teal, hunter green and dark olive.  We love these greens on their own or worn with black, navy and charcoal grey. Add any of these styles to your fall wardrobe for a little pop of color and your friends will be “green” with envy.

What do I wear with: P.Monjo P743 Gilda Sandal?

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we feature the P.Monjo P743.

What to wear with: P.Monjo Gilda Sandal

In most of the country it’s not quite beach weather yet, but you can dare to expose those toes on a nice spring day!  We really like this sandal, its nice neutral shade works well with khaki, ivory, blush and beige.  It’s an excellent choice to wear with your silk blouse,  jeans and a lightweight jacket.  Or dress it up and wear it with a feminine sundress for an evening out.

> Orla Kiely multi-color stem print tote.
