Modern shoes with a touch of that vintage feel

This is a week to deviate from my usual taste in rainbows and ridiculousness! I'm going to spend a morning doodling trying my hand at vintage-inspired shoes on the more classy end of the spectrum.

I'm going to feature heels, boots, and a few flats. We've got gentle rose colors, and some ivory, and some lovely blues… but of course some brighter colors too because I can't help myself! So, yes: let's get classy for a moment. Join me?

48 flats that are intense on styling, but gentle on your feet

It's like clockwork: I'll do a post about heels, and the first comment will be "…but I can't wear these!" I know, y'all. Believe me, I know. I spent several years in the '90s selling Birkenstocks for a living, so I SUPER DUPER KNOW. That's why today I'm going to focus on flats. Sweet, delicious, comfortable flats that are intensely awesome, but won't hurt your delicate feetsies. And if these 48 pairs aren't enough? Browse our massive flats archive.

I smelled a reader's hair: Lovesick Expo season 2015 kickoff

The first of our eight nationwide Lovesick Expos happened this past Sunday in Brooklyn, and if this show is any indication, this is going to be a great winter. I flew out from Seattle on Friday, and rolled into the Williamsburg Music Hall at 9am on Sunday to find the space already bustling with vendors setting up their booths. By the time the doors opened at 11, things were looking GAHMAZING! Then this happened…

Sparkly day-dream wedding shoes

Today we're having morning wet dream over not-cheap-but-completely-gorgeous romantic and slightly more traditional wedding shoes. By romance I mean shades of sparkle and bows; and by not-cheap I mean some of these cost my entire catering budget. Today we're just about sparkles and daydreams. Some days, that's just what you need.

2015's hottest wedding trend: fighting back against "Pinterest-perfection"

Once a week or so, I'll get an interview request from a journalist — and inevitably one of the questions they want to ask is "What are your trend predictions for next year?" I usually hedge these questions with a positive spin like, "Hopefully, a reduction in fear-based marketing" or "Less body-shaming directed at brides under the guise of beauty," but this year I have a bigger prediction:

That couples are going to start pushing back against the idea of "Pinterest-perfect" weddings.

Wide-calf wedding boots

Let's browse some tall boots for wider calves! If you're looking for kinky boots for your athletic or plus-size calves, we're here for you. The good news is that there are plus size boots with calf fits of about 17"/43 cm to 21"/53 cm, depending on your shoe size. And if you don't fall within those sizes, there are custom-fit options, too. Despair no more and check out these wide calf riding styles, glam heels, studded leather, and slightly loud colors.

Mustard yellow shoes for delicious wedding day

Mustard isn't necessarily the most obvious wedding shoe color choice… but its more muted color can be perfect for an autumn wedding, or for those of you going for a more jewel-toned feel. Mustard says you're aiming more on the sepia end of the wedding color spectrum.

That said, I'm going to toss in a few more generally yellow shoes as well. And one pair of platforms that take the "mustard" concept into a more literal, condiment-oriented direction.

Mid-height heels that won't bust your balls (of your feet, that is)

If you want a little heel, but don't want aching balls (…of your feet, of course), then a mid-height heel might be just right for you. Today I'm going to rustle up a few kitten heels, a few chunky low heels, and even toss in a couple flats. Most of these styles are from Modcloth, and you know how fast that shit sells out… so if you like it, SNAG IT!
