Wednesday, March 6, 2013 OMG, Shoes!: Step Into Spring
While we (impatiently) count down the days until we can step out in our favorite florals, crochet and cutoffs, it’s time to put the focus on the perfect shoes to pair them with. To kick start your spring wardrobe, we asked our shoe buyer Jaqueline for her top picks to take you everywhere from poolside to the main stage.
Wednesday, January 23, 2013 OMG, Shoes!: This Could Be You
Meet Christina, the oh-so-lucky girl that won our last Shoes For A Year sweepstakes. We got the chance to catch up with her to see her new collection of heels, boots and towering platforms. If you haven’t signed up yet, this year’s sweepstakes ends on January 29th, so step on it!
In this smorgasbord of shoes, what have you realized about your style?
I’ve noticed I really like the shoe to elevate the overall outfit. I’m not afraid to mix hard and soft looks.
If you had to choose just one pair of shoes to wear for a month, which would they be?
My favorite pair is the Sam Edelman Spiked Low Desert Boots (which are sold out, but here’s a similar pair) because they go with any outfit, whether it be a dress or a pair of jeans.
What are your favorite shoes on Nasty Gal right now?
I’m definitely digging the Zoe Oxford in Hologram. They’re a mix of feminine and masculine that’s so charming.
Have you found any new beloved brands or do you not play favorites?
How did you make space in your life for all these shoes?
Luckily, I’m usually pretty conservative with the number of shoes I have in my closet, so they easily fit in with the rest of them. I’ve started to stack them on higher shelves. Organization is key or I find myself wearing the same pairs over and over. I keep them in the box and have the description of the shoe facing out.
Has winning this contest helped refine your style or has it expanded it?
The shoes on Nasty Gal are bold and edgy. I love this! Winning the contest has definitely allowed me to expand my style in a much more exciting way. It’s amazing how these shoes really ramp up any outfit!
Thursday, October 25, 2012 OMG, Shoes!: One Of Each, Please
Since the fact that someone is going to win 50 new pairs of shoes next week has our heads spinning with the sky-high possibilities, we turned to our shoe buyer Jacqueline for the eight pairs she thinks every gal should have on her feet this season.
The Boot – Rum Moto Boot: ”The perfect everyday boot. I seriously have to force myself not to reach for these every morning.”
The Heel – Derien Pump: ”Chic and subtle, but with that hard-to-find ’90s shape in the perfect metallic.”
The Flat – Nita Velvet Oxford: “It’s hard not to fall in love with oxblood, velvet, and a stellar print all rolled into one amazing flat.”
The Sneaker – Homg Platform Sneaker: “Despite the camo print, it’s impossible to blend in with these bad boys on your feet. They’re made for weekend adventures.”
The Bootie – Alla Buckled Bootie: “The metal details make these booties so special, especially the little surprise in the back!”
The Sandal – Venus Pump: “You can’t go wrong with a classic t-strap, and the smoked lucite heel gives it an unexpected edge.”
The Wedge – Audrey Spike Wedge: “The ankle strap and wedge make them perfect for dancing all night long!”
Monday, October 22, 2012 OMG, Shoes!: Open Season
So many of you have asked what to do when the weather changes and cutout shoes no longer seem doable. We asked our style team for advice on the matter, and they’ve got some sweet ideas to get more mileage out of your edgy footwear.
The Super Suspender Tights with the Chevron Cutout Platform emphasizes the cutout details of this wicked platform, giving it a futuristic edge. Throw on a crop tank and leather skirt with a space-age bangle and you’re ready to party!
The hardware on the Tripoli Cutout Boot gives the super girly Tiny Bow Tights a little edge. Team it all up with a sparkly dress and you’re ready for any night out, dressed up and down at the same time.
