Trend Alert: Shoes Circa 1920's

I have been noticing a lot of these what I call "cobbler shoes". I did a little researching and found out that these shoes are actually modled after shoes from the 1920's and earlier. If you are like me and fascinated by vintage styles then you are probably dying to get your hands on a pair of these. They are very different from the styles of late but I think they are going to be a big hit. Alumna Spats $298 and The Dean's Booties $398 availabel at Anthropologie.

Red Envelopes Think Pink campaign has some great stuff. My favorite is this pink jewelry carrying case. Multiple compartments for different items and a ring holder. The outside is a soft pink leather and the inside is a faux suede. So now you won't get all your jewelry tangled together.
