TOMS Shoes for Spring

Just in case you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years, here's the story of TOMS Shoes: While vacationing, in 2006, a native Texan named Blake Mycoskie befriended the children of Argentina. When he learned that they had no shoes to protect their feet, he took action and founded TOMS Shoes. His company's straightforward and inspiring concept is providing the World's less fortunate children with shoes. For every pair purchased, TOMS gives a pair to a child in need. ONE FOR ONE. To date, TOMS Shoes has given away over 130,000 pairs in impoverished parts of Argentina, South Africa, Ethiopia, and the U.S. They are projecting another 300,000 pairs this year.

Styled after Alpargatas, the traditional footwear of Argentina, TOMS Shoes are just what your feet have been craving. They are classic, comfortable, and cool, in a single shoe with a cause.

A Perfect Pair

Every year, about this time, I start daydreaming about the warm days ahead, and making a mental list of the fresh pieces that will comprise my wardrobe for the new season. Always at the top of that list is the perfect pair of summer shorts. They must be comfortable, but pulled together. Sexy, but in a subtle and effortless sort of way. And as versatile as my favorite pair of jeans. Well, ladies, today, my daydream turned to reality...and I found them! These cut-offs from Joe's Jeans are all of the above and flattering too. Just pair them with a simple tank, some metallic sandals, and a couple of chunky bangles...boho-chic is as easy as 1-2-3.

Dresses a' Plenty

Just today, we received some great new pieces from Plenty by Tracy Reese: a retro belted shirt dress, a spring-y ice cream floral shift, a color-blocked jersey number, and a high-waisted garden skirt. There's a special little something for everybody!
