vionic shoes = style and comfort

IMG_0984IMG_0985IMG_0987

Let me just start off with the fact that I never thought that a pair of heeled booties  could be comfortable.  Enjoyable to walk in, even.  Shoes, in their most basic sense, are to get you from Point A to Point B.  In the fashion sense, they are for style; an expression.   That was my mindset for a very long time.  That is, until I was sent a pair of Vionic Shoes to try out.  The Vionic Shoes motto is: “Style.  It Doesn’t have to hurt.”  I, however, won’t believe anything until I try it.  I’m now a believer though, because from the second I slipped on my new “Ronnie Bootie” in black suede and laced details, I realized their motto is 100 percent true.  It’s safe to say that I was beyond impressed!

Okay, so what is it that makes Vionic Shoes so amazing?  Vionic Shoes are created to hug your arches like a natural footprint.  Vionic uses “orthaheel orthotic technology”, which was developed by renowned Australian podiatrist, Phillip Vasyli.  The biomechanical footbed in the shoe offers natural alignment, which supports you from the ground up.  Another thing Vionic’s biomechanical footbed offers is elevated support. This creates forefoot cushioning, arch support, and a deep heel cup to make standing and walking in heels, booties, and wedges actually comfortable.  Not only that, but Vionic is also recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association and the AMPA Seal of Acceptance has been granted to most Vionic with Orthaheel Technology products.  In essence, this means that Vionic has demonstrated the ability to promote good foot health.  Something special that Vionic Shoes offers for someone like myself who won’t believe anything until I try it, is their 30-Day Wear Test.  Basically, you can test out the shoes for 30 days, and if you’re not convinced with their comfort, they will refund your purchase!

My Ronnie Booties are now my most reached for pair of booties not only because of how trendy they are, but because I know it won’t be a painful day of walking when I wear them.  I’m positive that if you try them out, your Vionic Shoes will be your most reached for pair as well!

the ultimate shopping app: meraya

Let’s just start with the truest fact known to man: I love shopping.  I mean I REALLY love shopping.  Once I get in the zone, there is no stopping me.  I will go full force and bee-line from the racks, to the dressing room, to the cash register.  However, as much as I adore my shopping (cardio), there are some days when I just want to stay in my loungewear (pi’s) and not leave the house.  The dilemma?  I still want to be able to shop.  While I’m all about trying new trends, full blown pi’s (I’m talking oversized sweats and probably an old boyfriend’s hoodie) haven’t quite made the trend list this season.  What’s a girl to do?  Well, that’s where the Meraya app comes in.

Meraya is an app where you can try on all sorts of accessories like necklaces, ties, sunglasses, bow ties, and hats, all on your phone.  It uses snapchat-like filters where you can see what an accessory will look like on you before you purchase anything.  It’s great because you are able to visualize if a necklace or pair sunnies will work with your face or not before whipping out your credit card.

I think this app is such a great and unique tool, and it’s something I haven’t seen before.  I ordered two necklaces, and let me tell you, it was hard to pick only two!  I loved pretty much all of them.  I received my pieces, and they were beautiful…both on the app and in person!  You can download the app for free and get started on trying on some fun accessories.

I also have a promo code for you!

Have fun modeling your looks, and let me know what you think!

layer it on

IMG_9597IMG_9598IMG_9599

Layers on layers on layers.  Fall is for layers.  Layers of apple pie, layers of sugar and cinnamon cider donuts, and layers of clothing.  I find that my favorite looks are the ones where I layer on a ton of different pieces because it somehow all comes together in a chic, effortless way. Pieces that you’ve already worn can look brand new again because of the endless possibilities that layering offers.  Incorporating different lengths and textures with the layers will make the outfit look more intricate.  So, after you layer on some ice cream over top of your warm apple pie (tell me I’m not the only one), layer some pieces together that you already own, and see what new looks you can come up with!
