If you follow @ShoeTease on Instagram, you know that I’m an overly enthusiastic Winners shopper. I love the scour the racks of discounted brand & designer merch for that special find, sans pesky sales folk hovering around. That being said, there are many people who absolutely abhor this type of store & would prefer a curated little shop where they can whisk in & out of in the span of 15 minutes. I presume these are the people who dislike perusing vintage stores & shopping at Joe Fresh. [click to continue…]
I’m quite open about my little shoe “problem” & in addition to my Gapdenim addiction (which I’ve talked about here), I have a thing for Winners shoes. That’s where I found my latest pair of sneakers. Brand: Bucketfeet. Ever heard of them? Don’t worry; neither had I. Not only do they fit comfortably well (love the bubbly insole!) but they happen to have the most fantastic prints & graphics, because of their collaboration with various artists worldwide (in my shoe’s case, Erin Burke, from the US). I’m a sucker for an arts and/or humanitarian-inspired shoe philosophy, so it’s made me love these graphic print sneakers even more. So far, more than 2000 artists from 35 different countries have contributed their art. Wow! Bucketfeet shoes have a ton of different styles, including laced-up & slip-ons with various prints available. Check out my favourite styles after the jump!

Let’s talk about nude heels, shall we? A shoe closet essential full of fashion benefits; what do these shoes not work with, really?! From boardroom attire, casual ensembles & even a cocktail party or two, nude shoes will generally work with any clothing, season & place (and not to mention, a refreshing change from boring ‘ol black)! However, choosing the right shade of what will surely be your most versatile shoe, is possibly the most important aspect for when you’re shopping around for a pair of nude heels. [click to continue…]
I’m still not over these pretty purple-hued loafers (slippers? flats? whatever!) with the sweet little parrot motif, designed by Brazilian-based shoe brand Blue Bird. Maybe it’s my love of parrots, or the overuse of flamingo this season, but I’m absolutely loving these little shoe jewels! Perfect for a casual summer evening (not to mention a great transitional footwear item) these linen puppies are not your average plain-Jane flats. They will get you noticed, no matter where you’re headed!
They are currently available from Luisa Via Roma for CAD $299.

Nothing beats a pretty outfit with the comfort of loungewear, which is why I love this heather grey with white lace insert crop top & stretchy skirt from Zara so much. With its sweatpants-like jersey material, you can actually walk town feeling like you’re in your pjs, but looking cute doing so!
