Give Your Feet a Break

On Good Morning America yesterday, the hosts talked about wearing the wrong shoe size. As women get older, their shoe size can increase or decrease. This is a result of weight gain/loss, pregnancy, & just growing in general. Remember when you were a kid & couldn’t wait to use the metal foot measures at the shoe store to see if you feet had grown since the last time you were there? It is totally acceptable & do-able for you to use one of those.

Studies show that most women are wearing the wrong shoe size & it is most likely too small. The average shoe size has grown since the 60′s. In the 60′s the average shoe size was a 5.5. In the 70′s the average size grew to 7.5. In today’s day in age, the average shoe size is an 8.5-9.

Next time you’re shopping for the perfect pair of shoes, don’t be shy in checking your size. Use your left foot (it is most likely the bigger foot) & test it out. Do your feet a favor & comfort them with the correct size.

Big Name Fashion Icons break into the Design World

We all aspire to be the “it girl” when it comes to dressing the part of a fashion icon. We follow their twitter, instagram, & their publicity in the magazines just to catch a glimpse of what they are wearing. Finding the clothing they wear can be tricky, but have no fear when it comes to your feet; fashion icons such as SJP & OP have answered your shoe prayers.

Sarah Jessica Parker has stolen our hearts for over a decade being the chic & glamorous Carrie Bradshaw on Sex & the City. She always had the right outfit & always, always had the right shoes. Carrie’s love for shoes was portrayed throughout all 7 seasons & SJP launched her own line of shoes exclusively for Nordstrom this past February. The line is nothing less than perfect.Sarah-Jessica-Parker-Shoe-Collection-Nordstrom

Aside from SJP, the ever so fabulous Olivia Palermo has released that she will be launching a shoe collection with Aquazzura. Talk about a walking icon, OP always turns heads when she walks the streets & now you can turn a few heads too with her collection. Although this collection might break your bank, but nevertheless you will look chic & fabulous with a piece of OP strapped to your feet.

Beat the heat with these Summer hairstyles

As the humidity starts to rise, dressing cool & comfortably is the key to staying dry. We all might have the perfect outfit for that warm day, but what do you do with your hair? Throw it up in a messy pony? Chop it all off? Or just let it have a mind of its own? We came up with some hair tips as to how to look chic even on those warmer days.

1. Low Pony. Your hair is off your back yet still stylish

2. Short Hair. Opt for the trend of the bob or just shorter locks
