Now that Summer is finally approaching; women know that being stylish is a lot easier without having to worry about all the layers and covering up of skin.
What better way to style any amazing outfit than with a pair of shoes that are anything if not a work of art? TaylorSays promises a few turning of heads, while providing comfort to the woman that would rather stand out than fit in with the crowd of black or grey shoe wearers.
Originally from southern California designer Taylor Reeve puts her artistic mind to work on every pair of uniquely individual style she creates. She began painting on just about anything she crossed paths with, including her own clothing. Her artistic inspiration is derived from street art, graffiti and even tattoos.
It a takes a woman with a strong attitude to wear these shoes, since they do promise to not only bring a huge amount of compliments, but also draw a few critical glances. Don’t worry about the sky high heels (some as high as 5 inches with the platform). These are probably my most comfortable pair of heels. The cushioning inside helps me navigate the streets of New York with ease. TaylorSays shoes can be paired with just about any outfit. I’m currently wearing them to work with a red top and black pair of black pants along with my “Sharkie” heels.
TaylorSays shoes range in pricing from $120.00 to $270.00. You can also purchase from her website – taylorsays.com. Hope you enjoy your pair as much as I do mine.
As a woman we are genetically engineered to understand that with style, comfort must be sacrificed. Even more so during the dreary Winter months. Layering is not always easy, especially for the female always on the run. That’s why when we are given an opportunity to mix style and comfort; we are usually all ears.
6th Annual Harlem Fashion Row Headlines at the Apollo Theatre
Seven soulful African-American designers showcased their respective collections at Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) presentation, “The Reawakening.” Four hopefuls will continue on to show full Spring 2014 collections at HFR’s September fashion show.
Taking this year’s show to the Apollo was the next big step, as HFR’s CEO & Founder Brandice Henderson beamed during her welcome to attendees at the famed theatre. A Memphis native, she started this movement in 2007 and has brought her fashion background into the mix, creating an outlet for designers of color to join in the ranks of New York’s fashion world. Soulful spirits – past and present – filled not only the stage but emanated into the packed hall, inspiring a new generation of fit and form.
