Associate Buyer, Women’s Private Label Shoes

“These beautifully constructed mules can be worn now with your favorite summer dress or with a tailored wide-leg pant when the weather cools. A stiletto heel and pointed-toe shape is super flattering and leg lengthening. Plus, I love that they come in three colors—my favorite is the optic white!”

PIERRE HARDY Lula Suede Sandals
“I can always count on Pierre Hardy for a whimsical yet elegant shoe. The suede multicolored Lula sandal, with its small, shiny black buckle details, is the ideal day-to-night shoe. The sculpted heel reflects Pierre Hardy’s fascination with art and curiosity for architecture.”

Similar ALEVÌ MILANO Tulle Mules

“I am obsessing over the ruching trend, which is why I think this mule from Alevì Milano is a must-buy for the season. I would pair this feminine silhouette with relaxed RE/DONE jeans and a T-shirt for summer, then layer on a blazer for fall.”

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Spiked Leather Ankle Boots

“Who said you can’t wear white after Labor Day? The white-boot trend is still going strong this season, and I love Louboutin’s take with edgy spike embellishments.”

MANOLO BLAHNIK Martamod Satin Slide Sandals

“Dress from the feet up with these gorgeous blue satin slides from Manolo Blahnik. I’d pair mine with simple cropped jeans from now through October to let the shoes really shine.”

BALENCIAGA Women’s Triple S Suede & Nylon Sneakers

Balenciaga’s Triple S has been a highly coveted style for the past few seasons, and I love that it now is available in a new color iteration. Emulate a street-style vibe by pairing a chunky sneaker with sporty bottoms and an oversized graphic tee.”

“To me, a great slide is a wardrobe staple, and I love the construction of this suede Salvatore Ferragamo pair. The signature gold tone, flower-shaped heel, and multicolor fur bow come together as a playful take on the style.”
