Ahead, we have selected 12 cute rain boots under $100 (though 11 of them are under $70). More »

Shopping Guide: Crazy, Colorful Street Style Bait Wedge Shoes On A Budget

Shopping Guide: Crazy, Colorful Street Style Bait Wedge Shoes On A Budget

Last week we brought you a sneaker wedges Shopping Guide… but we secretly hoped you’d be pissed because they are hideous. This week we’re bringing you also-ridiculous wedge shoes but no sneakers in sight–instead, they are a riot of textures, colors and weirdness in the sub-$150 category. For those of you (like us) who tend to have a restrained aesthetic, sometimes a really oddball statement shoe can make an outfit look more deliberate.

Or… you know, just plain ridiculous. Whatever. Have fun. More »

Shopping Guide: Now’s The Time To Buy Chelsea Boots

Shopping Guide: Now's The Time To Buy Chelsea Boots

So we were outside TheGloss‘ Manhattan office last week and spotted a girl in Dr Martens (which we actively look for, apparently, because we’re still a friendless goth teenager). Upon looking a little closer, we realized they were actually a Dr Martens’ version of chelsea boots, which we had never seen and found kind of surprising. The short, suctioned ankle boot was a staple of the mod scene and enjoys a resurgence about every ten years–also! when spray-painted glossy white, they’re the unofficial shoe of the Stormtroopers in Star Wars–so we decided now would be a good time to go looking for a pair. While window shopping over the weekend, we then noticed approximately 60,000* other girls wearing Chelsea boots. …Which means we have an exploding trend on our hands. Moreover, an “It” shoe that’s walkable and practical is about the only kind we can get behind. So, without further ado… More »

Shopping Guide: 17 Nude Shoes For Cocktail Parties On Sunnier Days

Shopping Guide: 17 Nude Shoes For Cocktail Parties On Sunnier Days

As I was traipsing around Manhattan on a very dismal lunchbreak, it occurred to me that a gallery of excellent rain boots might have been more prudent for the day’s shopping guide. I considered sitting on this gallery of nude shoes–pumps, wedges, sandals, flats–and posting it on a day when one might actually consider the perfect nude shoe for an outdoor cocktail party or some sort of gathering that occurs in the sun. But… that’s the way the cookie crumbles, I guess. More »
