Accessories, Insider's Obsessions, ShoesInsider’s Obsessions: Vanessa Seide


Vanessa L. Seide founded Very Lovely Soles in 2012 as homage to her initials and the core meaning of her brand’s spirit. A thirteen-year veteran of Nine West Group Inc. and having grown up in a family of successful entrepreneurs, starting a footwear company of her own was a natural progression for Vanessa.

Vanessa found her niche and passion in flats after years of traveling and trend sourcing the globe seeking the perfect pair, but to no avail. Using her deep factory relationships, knowledge of the industry and inspiration from her trips, the concept for the perfect flat collection was developed and immediately put into action.

Each pair of Very Lovely Soles flats goes through hours of meticulous crafting from Italy’s finest shoemakers then is delicately marked with a tiny hummingbird logo. The insole is embedded with form fitting layers offering hidden support in a clean, streamlined silhouette – a technique and standard unique to Very Lovely Soles.

Fitness & Health, ShoesKick It Up


With my sister running in a race this spring, she’s motivating me to step up my fitness game. But it doesn’t hurt to have cute workout gear to help you along the way…starting with shoes!

Fashion, Jewelry, Shoes, ShoppingWhat to Wear & Drink to Your Emmy Awards Party


You are having an Emmy party, right? If not, start planning! The folks over at The Savory alerted us to this handy drinking game and I couldn’t resist reposting. Of course, I put our own spin on it, so here’s my reco on how to look stylish as you sip (or gulp) your way through the night:

1. Wear this J. Crew Duchess Stone Bracelet. Buy a few and stack ’em! They go perfectly with The 30 Rocktail. And, from now through September 25, 2013, you can save 25% off your purchase!

2. Slip on a pair of J. Crew Collection Valentina Calf Hair D’Orsay Pumps in Hazelnut Leopard or Dark Aubergine. I am obsessed with these. Obsessed, I tell you. They’re mostly backordered online right now but if you head to the store, they might have them! (Sale applies, of course.)

3. Get into an AllSaints Lewis Dress in Black. It’s flattering. It’s silk (read: comfortable and glam). It works day or night. What’s not to love?!?

Enjoy, Emmy lovers!

Coye Nokes Kai Sandal

Welcome to Part Two of my nude shoe obsession.

As I’ve searched for nude pumps, ankle strap sandals and the like over the years, I’ve noticed that it’s really — really — hard to find the right shade of nude. To truly elongate the leg, I prefer a shade that matches my skin color as closely as possible. But too often, the leather is almost brown (too tan) or almost white (too light). Once in a while, I find a near-perfect match. This time, it’s in Coye Nokes Spring–Summer 2013 collection. READ MORE
