Shoe Review: Dani Heel by Coach

This is my next absolute must have. This is the Dani Heel by Coach and is as comfortable as it is pretty.

The Shoe:
The naturally tanned, vachetta leather, the wide straps and the large gold buckle give this sandal the bold look that is a Coach classic.

The 4 3/4" heel is high but manageable with the height of the nicely curved platform. The leather sole is a bit slippery so you may consider adding a non-slip sole.

What I like:
The vachetta leather is soft and pliable, making it one of the most comfortable sandals I've tried all season. The straps are nice and wide to provide solid support, avoiding pressure points across the toes.

What I don't like:
I'll admit the heel is a bit high but it's not enough to keep me from getting it :)

Dani Heel, Coach: $198.

*Vachetta leather is left untreated and is therefore susceptible to a wide range of stains, from water to hand lotion. If it gets dirty or wet, it's hard to clean because applying anything to the leather can change the color. It's best to just leave it and over time, the pale leather will darken to a beautiful honey brown shade with stains and marks gradually blending into a rich new color, called the leather's patina.

Shoe Review: Cynthia Flat by Diesel

The flat is a shoe-closet necessity - a must have for jeans, that cute dress or a casual mini and sweater combo.

Finding a cute flat is not hard, but, finding a cute flat that is stylish as well as comfortable, versatile and affordable enough to buy in several colours...? That's a different story.

The Cynthia flat by Diesel was a great find; originally priced around $125 - $135, it's now on sale for well under $100.

Fabric covered upper with leather capped toe, leather sole. Fits true to size but is a bit narrow in the toes.

All dressed in White!

Leighann by Coach $198

White is back.... and it's everywhere! I'm personally not sure how I feel about all the white yet but that could just be because I'm too pale to pull it off very well.

Either way, this trend is making a big comeback from the 80s and 90s.

So whether you're looking for a store brand, a designer label, a high strappy heel, standard pump or cute flat, you'll find them all in white!

Be adventurous, buy some white shoes... there are plenty to choose from!
