Plastic shoes rise in Fashion

Plastic shoes have always been present in the fashion industry. However, they have experienced a boomed lately. Today, most shoe stores have a section offering this kind of footwear. Their selection varies per store and per sector. Boutiques in South Beach, Florida –for example- have a wider selection than other stores.

Before, there was a small selection of flip flops and sandals available. Now, there is an array of flats, oxfords and even pumps. Some of them are very comfortable just like their pioneers, the Crocs (To view their latest collections visit

Design has also evolved with time. New pairs have stylized lines, delicate models and eclectic details.

This trend is definitely comfortable, convenient and cute. Just make sure to pick the right model. You don’t your shoes to make you look wide, inappropriate, or like your work in a hospital or lab (Unless you do!).

A good rule of thumb is to pick shoes that are slim, with age-appropriate embellishments or patterns, and in suitable colors. Barbie pink plastic shoes are not appropriate at 35.

Another thing to keep in mind is the occasion where you are wearing them. Unless you work in a place that requires plastic shoes, be very careful when and where you use this candy. Another good rule of thumb is to wear them to any outdoor activity or with spring/summer outfits.

Please do not get the wrong idea. I am not against these shoes, by the contrary, if used well they can be fabulous!

Have you seen the gorgeous bow flip flops that different brands have designed? Everyone from inexpensive to designer labels has come out with a cute pair. Peep toe pumps have also provoked head turns. They are perfect for casual dresses and skirts, especially in nude colors. Flats are also incredibly pretty and unbelievably comfortable. They are great for jeans and skinny pants. Take a look at our slideshow!

If you have any questions on how to combine them, how to use them with other outfits and more, contact us at

Transform your REGULAR wardrobe into a fabulous OFFICE wardrobe!

If you are about to go back to work and have a closet with no suits or pencil skirts, that's okay. It doesn't matter why or what happened before your new job. It might have been a beautiful baby, years of studying for a masters,or living out of the country because of your husband's job. Whatever might have happened, I guarantee that there are potential pieces in your wardrobe dying to go to the workforce with you!

Here is a short list of ten items that can be re-purposed in your new work life. 

1. Print Dress: any print dress can be incorporated in your professional wardrobe if you coordinate it with a uni-color cardigan. You can also play with different skinny or thick belts to add structure. 

2. White Pants: the perfect summer pant is white. Any color in your closet will look amazing with white, so experiment with different blouses. Even the boring ones will come alive with white.

3. Big purse: a simple leather bag will be your best friend at the office. Instead of juggling with everything, pick a handbag that has enough space. Leave your hands free for that hot cup of coffee!

4. LBD: the classic little black dress is perfect for the office too. Accessorize, accessorize, and accessorize...a great belt, a chunky necklace, an amazing bag...can do wonders. 

5. Clutch: a gorgeous clutch is great for meeting the girls for a drink after work, to carry your makeup essentials, or to protect your tablet. 

6. Animal print heels: these are a life saver when not knowing what to wear. Pick 1 color and wear it in all your pieces. Then add the print heels to add interest and vuala!

7. The cuff: this bracelet can turn any outfit from boring to fab. And you thought you could only use it when you went out!

8. A fun watch: you can definitely have some fun with this accessory. Pick a design that  speaks to you and makes you laugh. It will make you smile when you see the time and wish you were done!

9. Stripe flowy skirt: you might think flowy skirts have no place at work, but they do. This design can be fun and serious at the same time. Pair it with a  uni-color top and a blazer. 

10. Statement necklace: don't be afraid to show your chunky jewelry at the workplace. Dress very conservative while sporting your favorite piece!

Light up your black pencil skirt

Light up your black pencil skirt with a floral coat. Cinch it at the waist with a thick black belt and coordinate  it with black suede pumps. What do you think?
