WTWW – Summer Dress + re-souL Sandal

Hello! It’s time for another edition of What to Wear Wednesday. This week we are craving for the warmer weather to come back to the PNW. We thought it would be fun to pair up some summer dress styles with our re-souL sandals.

 

resouL_maxime_yellow_sandalWhat is more comfortable than a long flowy dress in the summer? Wearing a dress means you only have one thing to put on in the morning and you don’t have to think too hard about what to wear. We like the way these yellow sandals compliment a blue dress. They would look great also with the colors black, khaki and olive green.

When you have plans to do some touring or simply enjoy the outdoors, these red sandals will be comfy on your feet but still look smart enough to wear around town. Flip-flops no more! We like the way they balance a spaghetti strap dress. Plus red is the “not neutral”, neutral. Wear them with black, gray, blue, white or khaki.

Okay, so a jumpsuit is not technically a dress but, it has the ease of a one-piece item like a frock or a shift. We love these orange slides and how well they work with most anything. Something very chic about a flat slide when paired with a jumpsuit or a longer length dress. You’ll be heading off to dinner in style, tre’ sophistique’!

 

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the week! ~ team re-souL

Behind The Scenes of Our “Shelley” Shootie

Original Sketch and Prototype of Our Shootie

Ever wonder how a shoe comes to be? It’s not as simple as it seems. A lot of thought and development go into making a shoe. After all, it’s a 3-dimensional object that needs to fit well as well as look good! Other than designing and developing a shoe into a prototype, actual manufacturing of a shoe is really interesting.

Below are photos that were taken at one of the factories we use to make re-souL shoes. We will try and navigate you through the pictures taken at this factory in Peru. This particular style we named the “Shelley”. It’s not quite a shoe and yet not quite an ankle boot, it’s what we like to call a “shootie”.

In these photos above, the pattern of this style, the lining, and the upper materials are sewn together for each size and color. The outside welt that goes around the shoe between the upper and the sole is having glue applied before the lasting of the shoe takes place.

Here we can see the shoes that have been put on the last. The “last” is the form used to give a shoe its shape. You can see the welt and the sole from a side view before the heel block will be attached.

After the shoes come off the last, and the heels have been attached, they await the final stages before boxing them up for shipment. They are cleaned up, waxed, buffed and stuffed with tissue.

Lefts and rights are matched up and the final inspection is done. They are boxed up and ready to be sent to us. We can’t wait!

What do I wear with: the re-souL Lizzie?

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 our very own re-souL Lizzie.

 

 

This week’s inspiration for  “What do I wear…” comes from our Lizzie flat. Since it’s such a versatile little flat and comes in six colors, we thought we would show you how to wear them in 3 very different ways. The Lizzie in spearmint is a such a great color! We like it paired up with bold black and white pieces to give the oufits just little punch of color. The metallic Lizzie can be worn for a dressy occassion with a pretty printed gold skirt or casual too with a boatneck t-shirt and shorts. In the neutral color of Amber, wear the Lizzie with your favorite flowy blouse and relaxed jeans or a printed boho dress.
