I would personally like to thank Art Abenoza of Report Shoes and Steve Corcoran of Isis PR Agency, who reps DNA Footwear for gifting me the “Thompson” high heel open-toe bootie in black. DNA Footwear offers all the latest brands of shoes, including Report and Matiko. I recently tested out the leather and suede booties with 4 3/4 heels at my employer’s holiday company party, paired with one of my designs. They fit perfectly and I felt no slippage, however, I must be blunt, there was no traction on the front soles, which caused me to be more cautious while walking (and that I still have a hard time walking in heels to begin with). But other than that, I found no flaw. I felt regal and poised while wearing them. The curvature of the platform allowed for less pressure of my front sole, thus allowing for reasonable comfort while standing or walking for a prolonged period of time. Check out the shoe on DNA Footwear here.
I was recently gifted a vintage-inspired cuff with stones and zippered ruffle trim and a sleeveless tiered ruffle dress by the Lisa Michelle Collection. The dress fit beautifully and is made/and lined of silk charmeuse. The inner lining hugs the body at the right places, allowing the silhouette to look classic without looking loose. I chose to wear my dress with Michael Antonio wedge booties, which gave it a more playful look.
Lisa Michelle is now offering a discount for all my readers!! Use code, FashionsnobLA to get 20% off your order on her online store.
I was recently gifted the “Lifetime of Luck” bracelets by Alex and Ani from the popular site, ZeeBerry.com. The eco-friendly bangles came in a set of seven. Each bangle (made of Russian Gold over recycled metals in my case) adjusts to fit any wrist-size. Five of the bangles are simple, while the other two bangles have either a ‘Good Luck’ or ‘Tree of Life’ charm as well as a charm that bears the Alex and Ani namesake and the ‘recycle’ symbol. The bangles add flair to about any outfit, whether you choose to dress up or down.
