“Life is short, buy the shoes.” We have to say we are die hard believers in this mentality. If something is beautiful and it makes you happy, you will enjoy having it in your life. And what we love most about the shoes we have in store now is that they are not only beautiful, but they are also practical. These are shoes that will become your go to. They are comfortable, with a heel that is easy to walk in, either chunky, or low, or both! Plus, each shoe has that special something about it that will add that spice to your outfit and inspire shoe envy in everyone you walk by. IMG_0410

Feelin’ Golden
We can’t help but kick up our heels just a little higher when we’re wearing these Robert Clergerie Keyla Boots. A simple shoe from the front, it is all style from the back. This shoe is simple enough to be dressed down (as we’ve done here), and classy enough to be dressed up.

Update the Classics 
We love our black pumps. You can wear those things anywhere. But, these Robert Clergerie Kenneth Heels are going to give those pumps a run for their money. Comfortable enough to wear all day (chunky heel? Yes, please), and stylish enough to make a statement, these are a business wardrobe must-haves. (PS if you’re like us and don’t dress business casual for work, pair with a fun top and your fave jeans, like Rachael is wearing above).

Rocker Chic
These Isabel Marant Dawyna Boots pair so naturally with different looks, you’ll be shocked at how often you end up pulling them out the closet to wear.

It’s the details that really make these shoes a showstopper.

Their neutral color leaves the outfit opportunities up to you and your imagination.

The Sneakers You Can Wear with Everything

You’ve heard it before…”and they go with everything!” Really? Do they? In this case, these sneakers are so cool, you really can wear them with any look. These are your Sunday to Sunday shoes. We’re talking about Golden Goose Deluxe Brand sneakers. A customer favorite, they danced their way into our hearts long ago. If you’re not familiar, here’s a little background info on the Golden Goose Deluxe Brand:

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand was born in 2000 merging the creative spirit of Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo: two young Venetian designers, outsiders until then to the world of fashion.

Since the beginning, the company has distinguished itself with innovative but artisan spirited products, a low-key communication strategy and a highly selective placement in venues that share the brand’s philosophy.

In 15 years, Golden Goose Deluxe Brand has created a complete lifestyle for its customers, offering a collection that includes ready to wear, accessories and footwear, combining a refined and modern style with a vintage feeling, all supported by the strong Italian sartorial tradition.

Our most recent arrivals are covered in sparkle, spattered with gold hearts that resemble leopard print, or keeping it simple with their classic solids. All of them feature that iconic eye-catching star, and all of them belong in your closet. After all, you can wear them with everything! Check out the outfits below for some style inspiration on how to pair your favorite sneakers with everything in your closet.

Tee Lab Golden Goose Look

Casual and comfy
Sneakers are comfy, this look is comfy, what more could we ask for?
The Golden Goose Gold Heart Super Star paired with the Frank and Eileen Tee Lab Off Shoulder Raglan, Racer Tank and Asymmetrical Short Skirt. Have we mentioned that we love how the heart print on these GGs looks like a leopard print at first glance?

Dress it up in golden goose

Dress It Up 
Spice up your sweetness with the golden goose glitter slide. 
Wearing the Golden Goose Glitter Slides, with Aspesi White Linen Dress and Jerome Dreyfuss Bob Handbag. We love this look for a weekend stroll through the market, a day trip out, brunch with the girls, Friday in the office, summer wedding, basically, we really love this look.

Sporty Chic in Golden Goose

Sporty Chic
Go with a solid color to pair with your sleeker looks.

Wearing the Golden Goose Starland Trainers paired with AMO Denim Babe Jeans, R13 Strange Love Tee and Nili Lotan Salvora Blazer. Maybe a little too casual for casual Friday at the office, but switch up this look with black denim instead, and you’re ready for a day to night look that will carry you right into Happy Hour.

Old School Cool with Golden Goose

Classic Cool 
You’ve probably heard, overalls are back, and we love them. 
Wearing the Golden Goose Leopard Mid Sneakers paired with the AMO Denim Babe Overall and Jerome Dreyfuss Serge Bag. If overalls feel a little young, we say, let out your inner child and rock it, you’ve got cooler kicks than all the kids in the neighborhood, anyway.

Marla Aaron Locks Now Available at La Ree Boutique

Marla Aaron“What began with one lock is now an entire collection designed to be worn in infinite ways and used as “jewel tools” with individuals’ own collections—to redefine the “precious” in jewelry with individuality. Although recognized for its streamlined, industrial look, the collection is deeply rooted in the personal and emotional jewelry of the Victorian and Georgian eras.” — Marla Aaron Website

Since Rachael received her custom Marla Aaron bracelet engraved with the names of her family in mid July, we have had numerous inquiries about the latest jewelry line available at La Ree, so we decided it was time to feature one of our new favorite jewelry designers.

 

Crafted and finished by hand in New York City, Marla Aaron launched her collection in 2013. Inspired by her love for all things bridges, hardware, and jewelry, Aaron started with just one lock and has since grown it into a complete line of stunning pieces designed to be worn together, customized, and collected.

Marla Aaron Baby Locks

Rose Gold Turquoise Lock, Medium Yellow Gold Diamond Lock, Baby Yellow Gold Pink Tourmaline

A simple design originally crafted from a hardware carabiner, Marla Aaron has enhanced the inspiration to include multiple shapes, adding gemstones, and playing with size to create necklaces, interlacing bracelets, and more.

Marla Aarong Lock Necklace

Baby Locks with Yellow Gold Rainbow Sapphire and Ruby and Diamond Baguette

These unique looks combine the industrial feel with the delicate and feminine. Adding a touch of color makes each piece unique and the endless combinations full of personal significance.

Marla Aaron Necklace

Yellow Gold with Diamond Lock and Rose Gold Hand Engraved Lock

Marla Aaron has also crafted hand engraved details like Rachael’s bracelet, or the rose gold lock featured above. The lock above features carvings that swirl and wind around the lock giving it a stunning texture and unique look that compliments the other locks in her collection.

Marla Aaron Necklace

Baby Lock in Rose Gold with Turquoise Baguette and Rose Gold Teardrop Lock

Marla Aaron is more than an incredible jewelry designer. A communications executive turned jewelry designer, she is familiar with what it means to be a single mom. Raising her son as a single mom from ages 1-6 years old before meeting her husband showed her the importance of recognizing other women who are raising children on their own. In support of these women, she started the #LockYourMom initiative that gives baby heart locks to single moms with a simple ! engraved in the side to recognize the “the universal powerful, speechless feeling of motherhood. The !!! of motherhood–both how it feels to be a mother and how one feels about their mother.”

We are excited and proud to bring Marla Aaron to Seattle at La Ree Boutique.
If you see something here you love, please let us know, we’re here to help. Or come by the store and see our full collection of these stunning Marla Aaron piece.
