These Boots Are Made for Buying

22 Jul

I know we are in a major heatwave, but this time of year always brings one favorite annual event that denotes fall — The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You have the opportunity to purchase new, fall merchandise at discounted prices. But, come August 8, the prices go back up. There’s everything from men’s to women’s to children’s clothing and accessories. Here are some picks from Motown Savvy, because in Detroit, you can never have enough boots.

If you are feeling edgy, try these Tory Burch boots at $299.90. After the sale, it’s really $495.00.

 

Two of my favorite blogs also posted information about the Anniversary Sale. Check out House of Harper and A Cup of Jo.

Summer Shoe Spree

8 Jul

Summer shoes are always so comfortable especially because you don’t need socks.  I purchased three very distinct shoes this season that I’m enjoying. The flowered heels are by Ivanka Trump from Nordstroms.(This link takes you to the sale!)

The silver and black sandals are by Miu Miu from Tender in Birmingham, Mich. They are are all sold out!

The beige canvas shoes are Tom’s. I love the philosophy of Tom’s where they buy a pair of shoes for a needy family when you purchase one!

The shoes below are from my daughter’s closet. Her foot grew during pregnancy, and she can no longer wear these. They make a nice addition to my collection. Did you buy any shoes this summer?

The other day I was walking down the street in Birmingham, Mich. and this black  and gold-trimmed doorway was bedecked with flowers. I peeked in, and to my surprise, I was greeted by Lama Tayeb (below), the owner of the new boutique Coqueta.

The colorful boutique was filled with clothing from Milan and Paris. “I have a passion for fashion,” says Tayeb, who travels throughout Europe selecting beautiful clothing, shoes and handbags for Coqueta.

Enter the equisite  doorway of Coqueta and you, too, will see beautiful fashion!

 

Milan in Motown

At the Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, Mich., I stumbled upon an elegant store — Carlo Pazolini. There is a wide variety of shoes for men and women as well as handbags and accessories.  The leather is soft and sumptuous, and the styles are exquisite. The store will be expanding in the U.S., but has more than 150 locations in Europe. According to the Carlo Pazolini website the company began in 1990 when the Carlo Pazolini trademark was registered in Italy. Check out the website design at Carlo Pazolini — that’s beautiful too!
