As tall women, we are always in the public eye. On most days, I’m okay with this. When walking in to work amidst the throngs of Northwest DC pedestrians, I queue up a power playlist, put on my headphones, and glide down the street. People get out of the way. People stare. I feel very much like…well, like I’m 6’ 3”! So it is a little humiliating when, with all of K Street’s eyes on me, I take a tumble because of unsupportive footwear or slippery soles. The way down is long for me, and my precious pants and tights already have too many scrapes (and I definitely don’t like to be brought back to those teen years where I tripped time and time again in high school halls, struggling for so long to grow into my spaghetti legs).
This dress from VinnieLouise was a Christmas gift but it couldn't be more perfect for the transitioning weather. While I loved it all Winter with fleece leggings, it's just the right length to wear with sheer tights, too.
Because this dress makes a big statement on its own, I'm always trying to find the perfect shoes and these black booties from Rhea Footwear totally fit the bill. The best part? They didn't even need broken in. I've worn them for a fancy dinner out, to a work conference all day, and now, for a casual brunch. They've become a fast favorite.
Who doesn’t love a pair of shoes that’s fun, fashionable and fit like a dream?
I’m self-confessed shoe addict, but since I’ve been working from home these past few years, my wardrobe mostly consists of basic yoga pants and T-shirts. My shoe-buying obsession has decreased exponentially, too. Yeah, I know. Booooring, right? Therefore, I was THRILLED when Rhea Footwear contacted me and asked me if I’d like to try out a pair of their super-cute non-slip shoes.
Fellow college students, listen up: this is where Rhea Footwear comes in. Who said you couldn’t look stylish and maintain your footing while crossing campus? These chic little non-slip booties provide legitimate comfort and the perfect tread for winter weather, two things that are really hard to check off at the same time when it comes to winter footwear. I feel like I’m usually either sacrificing comfort or safety for style, and that’s definitely impractical.
