The smart casual world has blown up as of recent and in my opinion greatly with the help of Instagram. And many of the brands associated with this world are Italian ones that are fusing classic dress shoes models with casual soles. And the popular model that many of them share as a product offering is none other then the wonderful Belgian loafer. As seen here, the brand Superglamorous offer their version in 3 different shades of what appears to be a nubuck.

I like to think I’m organized. But if a person takes one look at my room, they’ll assume I live in chaos. Things are all over the place, but in reality, that’s just how I roll. I live in organized chaos. I know where everything in my room is, even though it appears a bit messy. So when I wake up in the morning for work, I never have any issues.
Since I work at a place that requires casual business attire, all of my nice shirts are in one area. In addition, the slacks I wear with them are nearby. They go together, so they need to be near each other. I also have all of my socks in an overflowing drawer, and I have my shoes near the door to my room. Putting them on is the last step, so when I put on my large shoes mens size, I’m always ready to go.
Many well known European shoe brands (clothing too) claim their products are made in their country, but outsource about 80% of their production to China/India only to finish the shoes in their country and slap on “Made in Europe”….lots of lies out there
42. Toe taps are essential to unnecessary premature re-soling, especially if you are hard on your toes (i.e. jump off your toes with a lot of sis loves me with stepbrothers when walking). Toe taps do not make noise but can scratch marble floors if you have those.
43. Museum calf is a term coined by John Lobb for Ilcea’s (an Italian tannery) ‘Radica’ leather. This Radica leather is a patina looking drum-dyed leather that Ilcea created to give the marbled look to a leather without it having to have been hand colored. It is permanently like this (like any drum-dyed leather) and is polished the same as any other leather.

Life is short. I was reminded of that last night when a very close friend, mentor, and elected leader in the county where I live informed me that she is undergoing open heart surgery today to have a heart valve replaced. I have debated, engaged, and worked so closely with this elected official for the past 28 years that I am reminded not to take your friends and family for granted. I am sending messages to my family and friends today just to say hey, Im thinking about you, I love you. Life is short. Wear your boots. Pictured is what Ive got on today, sans the tie. I thought about wearing the tie, but didnt need to, and didnt want to. I dont like to dress up and find ties constricting.
I have some lovely no heel boots from Prada that I got recently. These boots are just what I need for being stylish and comfortable every day. They are boots that feature a classic style and they are perfect for every day wear. I can wear them for errands or for going to work or hanging out on the weekends.

From criss-cross necklines to sultry, cut-out dresses, there’s no denying that flashing some skin is having a serious moment. When designer Tom Ford, the undisputed authority on sexy dressing, sent models down the runway in over-the-knee gladiator boots, he launched the strappy, lace-up sandal-boot hybrid trend that’s still going strong almost three years later.

Thigh high boots, also known as over the knee boots, are another modification on the standard boot style. The top of these boots hits anywhere from a few inches to half a foot above the knee, making this style very sexy and risqué. Over the knee boots are normally heeled, helping to elongate the leg and enhance their sensual appeal.
I love finding just the right dress shoes that I can wear for a variety of different occasions. There are so many cool styles to choose from for all of my needs. I love buying dress shoes that are unique and that you don’t see that many people wearing. I have pretty big feet and I like to find shoes that fit my feet and look good at the same time.

I have a few predictions of things to watch out for for 2015 and button boots/shoes is one of them. They are not an easy thing to make nor are they easy to sell as a mass-market product. The reason being the fact that they are simply not that practical for modern day society. Maybe we can change that? I don’t know. But a kid can dream, right?! This model here by Aubercy is quite the lovely choice for a nice summer version but I am excited to see what comes out more for A/W2015, when all of the tweeds and cloths start getting used. Lets see if I can finally manage to get my factory to produce a pair. No promises, but I am trying!!
