Wear Lucite Heels Without Being Mistaken For a Hooker

0

Posted on April 8, 2013 by


The lucite heel, more commonly known as the ‘hooker heel,’ may have a bad reputation, but this season’s updated versions are designed with a subtle twist to wear day or night without being asked, “How much?”

We rounded up eleven clear-heeled, Cinderella-worthy sandals that have spring written all over them. From architectural to sleek, high-heeled to low-heeled, there’s a variety of ways to express the classy hooker in all of us.  Jeffrey Campbell is a go-to for this style along with Kate Spade, ALDO, and Alexander McQueen.

Choose a style that suits your tastes and wear them casual or dressed up; but just to be safe, stay away from anything too short, too tight, or too revealing – we don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea.

To Splurge or Not to Splurge – Studded Ankle Boots

Posted on August 9, 2012 by

These leather ankle boots have it all: buckles, studs, and stacked heels.  In an attempt to decide between the two, it may come down to price.  The Chloé Studded Leather Buckle Ankle Boots are around $1,345 (depending on the color) and the Jeffrey Campbell Star-Burst Ankle Boots are available for $188 at Urban Outfitters.

There are a few minor details that help distinguish the two studded stunners.  Although both heels are stacked, the Jeffrey Campbell heel is tapered.  Also, the Jeffrey Campbell buckles are more rounded in comparison to the Chloé buckles which narrow towards the tips.  If you look closely, you’ll notice the shaping of each style is different as the Jeffrey Campbell toe is more rounded than the Chloé toe.

Which pair would you choose?  Over here, we are partial to the designer labels; however, we do love a good deal!

Three’s a Party: Black Milk Clothing, Jeffrey Campbell and Solestruck.com

0

Posted on April 4, 2012 by

The latest collaboration between Black Milk Clothing and Jeffrey Campbell demonstrates the power of “it doesn’t hurt to ask.”  High demand for the discontinued Jeffrey Campbell Back Off shoe used in photos on the Black Milk website created an unintentional association between the two brands.

    

Black Milk Clothing started with a pair of leggings about three years ago and has grown into a full-blown online shopping destination offering swimsuits, bodysuits, dresses, skirts, tops, t-shirts, shoes and of course, an eclectic collection of leggings.

Jeffrey Campbell, the shoe designer that needs no introduction, has been in the shoe game for over a decade.  Designs that hold true to the gritty and edgy styles born on the streets combined with a global following, have made the brand a household name among the fashion forward.

Enter Solestruck, one of the largest online Jeffrey Campbell retailers, to complete the triangle.  Solestruck’s brand manager, Ty McBride, reached out to Jeffrey Campbell to inquire about the Back Off shoe after customers started asking when it would be back in stock.  Unfortunately, the Jeffrey Campbell factory no longer had the mold for the shoe!

The simple courtesy of listening to the customer has brought the shoe back from the depths of discontinued land and placed it on constant reorder.

The association sparked by the Jeffrey Campbell and Black Milk ad led to the creation of a capsule collection of shoes that were available for pre-order on Solestruck as of Monday, April 2.  Prices for the patterned collection of platforms ranges from $189.95-$249.95.  The Back Off is back in “Bone Machine” along with Lita Fab, Damsel, Night Lita and 99 Tie.

According to the The New York Times-On the Runway blog, Solestruck placed a pretty big order to keep up with the demand.
