The Fall Classics

While the runways kept the pizzazz with fun and fantastic fashions for the Fall, they included a lot of classic shapes for that nostalgic throw back to styles that have lasted the test of finicky time.  It inspired me to invest in my classic styles of shoes, like in The Real Thing.  So I started my new project of looking for great neutrals with the classic styles and found myself loving the ‘Stephanie’ by Cole Haan with Nike Air technology. 

I’ve had girlfriends long affections told about this amazing marriage of Nike Air and Cole Haan craftsmanship, but I had never actually gotten a pair for myself.  So, this seemed like the best time for me to do my test run.  And after having sported them to work a few times, you can add me to the list of The Converted.  The footbed is everything it’s lauded to be.  You really can feel the cushioning in that shoe.  It’s so very nice!

The beautiful grey shade is perfect to ease you into the Fall weather outfits you’ve been ready to wear for weeks thanks to our extended 100-degree weather stints in L.A.  The 4 ¼” heel conceals a ¾” platform that makes these a very practical 3 ½” actual heel coupled with that delicious cushioning that carries you for your longer work days.  The combination of a sling back peep toe makes these simultaneously retro and fashionably professional.  It’s just the right amount of “sexy secretary” to still be taken seriously in your skirt suits.  The overall classic shape brings sexy sophistication barring you from ever looking matronly or cheap.

Now, the boys aren’t the only ones that are excited about the Fall Classics.
