Things that seem like they shouldn’t go together, yet somehow they do.
Happy Halloween! Have a spooky weekend.
Happy first day of September everyone and happy Labor Day to those of you in the USA! With Fall just around the corner, I’m in the mood for the darker colors of black, gray, and aubergine. Hues of ink like shades that will inspire my autumnal color palette. Maybe it’s because I am in the mood for something more serious or maybe I just want the rain to come back?
At the moment I am in Italy and I hope to share some images from Milan in the very near future. Have a great week ~ Maggie
We just recently launched our new re-souL shoe collection for women. It’s a big step for us to launch our own brand and yet to us, it seems like a natural progression. Over the past 12 years in our shop, we are honored to have met countless customers and friends and we have a pretty good feel for their look and their style. Recently, in our travels to the marketplace and to trade shows, we have these customers in mind and it just felt like their needs are not being met by the usual brands. So it makes sense to us, with our background in shoe design, to take it to the next level and design our own collection.
Our shoes are very much styled after specific people that we know and love. Everyday basics, stylish and comfortable, they are up-to-date and available in colors because that’s what she wants to see. For the next few weeks we will regularly feature a shoe from the new re-souL collection. We’ll portray a personality of someone we know that inspired the design of the shoe.
The Misha shoe is most definitely inspired by our friend Misha. She is the designer/wizard behind Turquoise Creative, a design studio that sells fine paper art and stationery. This petite powerhouse is the friendliest extrovert you will ever meet. When she’s not designing, Misha can be found working on “the house” with her husband Ben, running after her two young sons or enjoying the urban life with her eclectic mix of friends. Her taste is definitely feminine and she never leaves home without mascara or anything less than a one inch heel. She loves a perfect French croissant, clear sunny skies and spring flowers. Misha always prefers a dress instead of pants, her style is vivid and her wardrobe is filled with colorful scarfs and very special accessories. Her namesake shoe was designed for the fashionable gal who is never afraid to be too dressed up, regardless of the occassion.

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL. I like to “muse” about things that inspire me. Especially on Mondays.
If you spend any time on Tumblr or Pinterest, you will see the heavy influence of black and white in home accessories, as well as interiors. I love the look. I am very drawn to it. But I just can’t picture myself living in a black and white environment. A very cool esthetic, but too rigid for my tastes.
On the opposite side of the spectrum (no pun intended) we have a trend of lots of cheery colors, a “rainbow” of colors for a lack of a better description. Don’t get me wrong, I like color. But all the colors? It can be a little bit of an overload for me.
Somewhere there has to be a happy medium, don’t you think? For now, I think I’ll stick to my dependable orange.
