Originated in Toledo, Spain – UIN Footwear is a testament to travel and art. The extremely comfortable and distinctive designs are the core values of UIN Footwear, which are widely recognized by their fans. We had the pleasure of getting to know these incredibly comfortable and stunning shoes around our city. Because New York is the fashion capital of the world and we just happened to be working on a 4-day photoshoot, we selected the very fashionable knitted Elegance boots from their Modern Art Collection.

They are incredibly lightweight and comfortable and served us very well on our 4-day shoot. We received so many compliments from the entire crew, from models, a stylist, and a creative director. The Elegance isn’t the only fashion-inspired design we loved and we know you will too. Fans of Fashion and the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s will love the Mademoiselle and Paris-lovers will love the Little Black Dress (both of which are pictured below).

As we mentioned, the brand is a testament to two passions, travel and art, and their vast collections reflect that. They have styles for animal lovers, fans of all art (modern, abstract, graffiti), floral, etc. Current available collections include Moguer Lace-up Flats, Caribbean Paradise Collection, Romantic Greece Collection, Mexico Collection, Caring For Our Planet, Emoticon Art Collection, Idyllic Tahiti Collection, Color Collection, Music Collection, South American Art, Passionate Brazil Collection, International Week of Science and Peace, Oceania Art Collection, Africa Collection, Egypt Collection, and so much more.

What makes these shoes so incredibly comfortable? First, they’re breathable and flexible; they boast an ergonomic design that fits perfectly to the foot shape; they only weigh between 9oz-1.7oz (depending on style); feature shock guard technology and soft, stimulating nodules that massage your feet all day; lastly they feature great arch support (something that’s especially amazing for those with high arches). It’s everything you need in a great-looking, comfortable shoe. We promise you will love them.

Joules Spring 2016 Fashion and Accessories Collection

The rainy season is almost upon us and we hope you’re ready but if you’re not, there are an abundance of items in the Joules Spring 2016 Fashion and Accessories Collection that will prepare you for the wettest time of the year. The bold and vibrant collection features exactly what you need to bring a bit of color and sunshine to the rainy spring days.

The contemporary lifestyle UK brand is known and loved for its high-quality clothing and accessories. While some of you may only know them for their rain gear, Joules offers much more than just wellies, gilets, umbrellas, ponchos, and raincoats. The much-loved brand offers its vibrant prints and patterns in a variety of dresses, tops, swimwear, scarves, handbags and accessories, and homeware. For their Joules Spring 2016 collection, we find a lovely mix of florals blended with stripes, polka dots, and graphic prints.

The British fashion brand is set to take over the concrete jungle and will surely bring some bright cheer with their mood altering fashions. We have several favorites in the collection in both prints and styles. We’re obsessed with the Imelda Woven Shift Dress (3rd image in the very first photo), which boasts a floral over stripes print on the front, and a solid chambray on the back, the May Woven Top (2nd image in the very first photo) in cream floral, a lightweight woven top with a floral front and a longer length polka dot back, and all the floral printed raincoats. But of course, most know Joules for their gorgeous footwear and the Joules Spring 2016 Fashion and Accessories Collection doesn’t disappoint.

Old favorites and new prints are available in wellies and flip flops that not only coordinate with the raincoats, scarves, and ponchos, they’ll add a much need punch of color and vibrancy to your wardrobe.

With these gorgeous spring looks from Joules, you may find yourself wishing for those rainy days. What do you think of the spring offerings from Joules? Do you have any favorite prints or looks?

This look, the Jill an epic lace-up tall boot that has it all:  style, comfort, and attitude!!!   When the outside temperature drops a bit, it doesn’t mean you have to pack away those dresses.  I’d pair these sexy boots with a feminine, short lace dress and matching thigh-high socks.  Beautifully constructed and soft-to-the-touch, the Jill features full grain leather for just $220.00!


Engineered with style and performance in mind, Harley-Davidson Footwear has beautifully combined classic footwear designs with distinctive detailing.  Just take a look the Auburn. This performance style features woven leather and studded detail on a classic harness silhouette. And you won’t believe the price of only $174.00.  These mid-calf boots will look great this fall with a crisp button-down white shirt and a cozy scarf paired with your favorite skinny jeans.


Their Lifestyle collection includes authentic looks, classic silhouettes, and fashion-forward styles.  Harley-Davidson offers styles that are heritage-inspired with a casual street twist.

My favorite part of the fall/winter 2015 collection is when I get to break out my riding boots and leggings. The 14″ Cyndie boot features a gorgeous smokey full grain leather upper with thin dual straps.  For an affordable $200.00,  these slate-colored boots will pair perfectly with a basic top, my favorite statement necklace, and comfy black leggings.

I’d complete this edgy look with an over-sized sweater and a cute pair of distressed skinny jeans.  The Mila sells for a cool $220.00.


The Sharon, available for just $180.00, takes style and comfort to a whole other level.

For Summer 2012, American Eagle continues to bring bold colors, soft feminine styles and lively patterns. The American Eagle Summer 2012 Collection features fun and flirty looks that capture the exciting and carefree days of summer. Expect to see lots of girly styles, silhouettes and fabrics, light layering, mixing of prints and colors – not a surprise since this summer’s collection is inspired by the theme “live loud” and the Coachella Music Festival.

Crocheted and lace dresses were belted, shorts were paired with wide knit tops, thin spaghetti strap crop tops and crocheted tops; Rompers were seen in floral prints, summer scarves in various prints, colors and lengths were paired with dresses, shorts, etc, lacy tank tops in bright colors, floppy wide brimmed hats were paired with just about everything (a must have sun-shielding accessory for women at Coachella); relaxed silhouettes, fun looks and playful colors are the essences of this collection and I’m sure we will see many pieces from this collection throughout the summer. One of my favorite looks from the collection wasn’t a piece, it was the fact that the fun graphic prints were seen in shorts, tops and accessories.

EMU Australia Fall 2012 Collection

I was so sad to miss last season’s EMU Australia show at Style360 but I made sure I was available this time to catch the EMU Australia Fall 2012 Collection show, again held at the Metropolitan Pavilion as part of the Style360 Shows. The Fall 2012 collection, inspired by the natural elements of Australian and Nordic fur trends, featured an almost all neutral color palette, earth tones such as mushroom, chocolate, toffee, red earth, clay, hedge green and boysenberry.


The collection exhibits EMU’s unmistakable ties to the Australian environment with looks featuring meticulous outerwear including a double-faced sheepskin coat with a vintage Nappa finish, snow tipped long hair sheepskin vests and jackets, tailored merino wool pieces, and cozy cardigans and sweaters.
For footwear, the focus was on sheepskin and Nappa leather styles. The comfy shoes (whose styles I like so much better than their competition) are 100% super soft waterproof Australian Sheepskin that is thicker which gives their boots more structure. They feature anatomically correct sheepskin lined insoles, a tough rubber outsole, and molded heel cups. The fashionable boots featured textured leathers, stunning trims, and metal embellishments. My favorite styles were, of course, the leathers, particularly the cool Leeville Boot in Mushroom (below left) and the Sandon Boot in chocolate (below right) – both make great everyday boots. A non-leather favorite was the Miva Boot in mushroom (4th photo) – one glance will have you fall in love as well.
