Coach Canvas Peep ToesSTreet Style Utility Jacket3

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. They just don’t understand the fun! Not to toot my own horn, but not only am I a pretty great bargain hunter (out of necessity, mostly!) but I’m a bit of a treasure finder over at Winners. I found this incredible necklace (not to mention this one too!), scored amazing Ralph Lauren pumps, graphic sneakers, my favourite earrings & found cross-body bag upon purse of gorgeous little gems (some even on clearance!). You know, just to name a few. Seriously though, if there were a Winners challenge, I would win. Not to gloat, but having a visual knack is kind of my superpower (seriously, I was tested. But rest assured that I scored impressively low on everything else!).

Street Style - Emma Fox beige handbag

To get to my point, the bulk of this outfit is from Winners: the Coach canvas printed peep-toes, the two-tone Bella Luxx romper & Emma Fox handbag. The utility jacket is an old favourite from Gap, chain necklace from Joe Fresh & baubles aside from the Aldo rings, were a gift from an unknown store. Although I’m not a fan of Coach bags, I do love their shoes. I already own this great pair of black leather booties & this relatively new pair of peep-toes are just as comfortable. As I’ve recently babbled about, I’m a huge fan of comfortable high heel shoes and my experience with Coach footwear so far is a lovely fit with a comfortable feel. Essentially, I’m able to walk like a lady rather than like a newborn calf. Which, to be honest, is what I like to strive for when I slip on a pair of heels!

Delta Bucketfeet Sneakers

Toronto Street Style - Chambray & Stripes

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!

Street Style - Nude High Heels, Fringe Purse Photos by HZD PhotographyStreet Style - Hawaiian Tshirt & Nude High Heels

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. A “nude” hue is not necessarily synonymous with a blush tone

Blue Bird Parrot Shoes

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.

Alexander Wang Lovisa Pumps Street Style Lace Leather White Heels

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!
