Posted on by Kristina


We’re thrilled to be featured in May’s issue of Lucky magazine.  Our Dawn sandal in Sky Blue is a new 80%20 silhouette for Spring 2011, made of washed canvas with leather trim and tassle.

The editorial not only features great picks for Spring, but has a very important charitable counterpart.  All of the retailers listed on the product page will donate 50% of their sales to various organizations working to improve the lives of women around the world.

We’ve partnered with Karmaloop who will donate their proceeds to UNICEF, supporting free, compulsory education for girls.

The Dawn in Sky Blue is available at Karmaloop now.

Everyone has been going crazy for the color red lately from hair, to clothing and even shoes. If you’re not ready to dye your hair fire engine red this season, you might as well accessorize with this bold color!  Dip into this trend by wearing a pair of our Yossi Picnic Red sandals, an exclusive for Anthropologie!

Tie this look together with color matching separates and lighter tones for contrast for a fun Springtime ensemble.

Head over and get this entire look at Anthropologie!

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart | Heart in Your Heartbreak

Posted on by Kristina

We’ve been fans of Brooklyn band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart for a while now; we still listen to their first full-length, Young Adult Friction on a regular basis.  They just released their sophomore album Belong, which is now available on iTunes in the US and UK.

The band is kicking off a US tour this week and if you haven’t seen them live – you have to! See where the band is playing in a city near you.

Check out their fun new video for the single “Heart in Your Heartbreak” (via Pitchfork):

WEB STORE EXCLUSIVE | WILLA

Posted on by 8020shoes

The Willa is the first exclusive limited edition style featured in our online store!

The Willa is a new construction featuring braided woven straps on 3.5″ cork wedge with a molded foot-bed.  Designer Ce Ce Chin is in love with the color saturation and the smooth lacquer finish- it perfectly embodies the tribal trend of the moment.  Ce Ce chose to offer the Willa as an exclusive because the material is quite rare and hard to find. Get a pair while you can!
