Suspended

The key to any good outfit lies in the accessories.  The wrong ring, a misplaced muffler, an off-hue shoe, and an entire ensemble becomes fodder for the fashion squad.  I jest, but so much can be said in the details of a day’s dress.  And while us female folk have the prime pickings when it comes to ensemble embellishments, sometimes it’s better to borrow from the boys.  After all, you know what they say about greener pastures…

So here’s to the style of suspenders, a look for all my britches + pantyhoes.

Brogue Wave

While the Birkenstock may be, hands feet down, the foreign footwear of choice for summer, changing it up is key. But filling the lofty shoes of the durable, comfortable, + fashionable Birkenstock as the season staple is a hard task to attempt.  But another European-made mule might just be the ideal alternative.

Brogue; a strong outdoor shoe with ornamental perforated patterns in the leather, formerly worn in parts of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.

Akin to the oxford (and often confused as such), the brogue is a borrow-from-the-boys alternative to sandals for the warmer days.  And Italian shoemakers – also known as cordwainers, not cobblers – at Anniel have vast collection of unbelievable soft leather loafers.  Their assortment in general is astounding, offering a range of simple classic looks to glittered + gilded variations.  The entire Anniel line  is massive, and their handcrafted, soft-structured shoes provide both fashion + functionality as the brand fuses art + sport.

Because in the end, great style is about keeping people on their toes.
