Do you remember the tree your family had growing up? Probably had one like ours! No one did a theme, or color scheme, just family heirlooms and new additions added every year! When I was little, we had to have a double needle Canadian balsam. Dad insisted! And sometimes, when the tree was a little sparse, he would stop the complaining by saying, "God made that tree!" and of course the groaning would end! My parents would put the tree on a platform made by Dad (that lives on in my sister Chrissy's house today!) and we would go to bed. The next morning, Santa not only left gifts for the fi...

The legend of the ballet flat in fashion goes back to icon Audrey Hepburn. Of course, the first flat shoe dates back 1000's of years, but fashion took notice when Audrey made it famous! The story goes that Miss Hepburn was in Paris and went to see legendary designer Givenchy, in pencil slacks, a crisp white shirt, and ballet slippers. The look was born! Here's a photo of my buddy, Amy Oselkin, in a classic Audrey Hepburn pose wearing the Clarks Haydn Gloss Bendables Leather Loafer!
In my summers during college my job was working in a bridal salon. Loved it! And I remember ... Continue Reading

Favorite thing about fall shoes?? Boots! No longer just for work or snow, boots are always the number one footwear choice for fall. And, they go back 1000's of years! The First "boots" showed up around 1000 BC, when an enterprising soul stitched a sandal to a legging to protect the ankle. First boots were born! Whether we sported the go-go boots of the 60's (like Deirdre's retro dance number!) or cowboy boots even in the hottest weather, boots are a go-to in everybody's closet!
So - what are some of the top trends in boots this fall? (Warning, writing this blog led me to buy two... Continue Reading

Deirdre went to her first ballet recital before she was born! Her big sister Cara was performing about a month before Deirdre was born so it just seemed natural that as soon as she was old enough, she went to dance class too. Growing up, Cara and Deirdre would perform numbers from classic musicals (Sound of Music, Meet Me in St. Louis) when they were about ages 7 and 2. Most guests were treated to "So Long, Farewell..." from the Sound of Music as they headed out the door! And, like all sisters, they had their moments, but the bond of dance has always been there for them and a... Continue Reading

Happy July 4th!!! One of my favorite holidays! We are celebrating with my shoe shopping family with a "red, white and shoe" party! I wanted to share some photos that show how much I love this holiday and our country. I am an American Revolutionary history lover so this is my holiday! I also included my smoothie recipe!
Deirdre's class went on a field trip to The Betsy Ross House where it all began. God bless America!
