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.

See a pair you love? Check out our Instagram for more pics of new arrivals.  Here’s to rocking your favorite pair of sneakers all week long.

Spring Break Jetsetter Style

The kids are out of school, it’s still too cold to spend much time outdoors, time to get on a plane and head to somewhere warmer, somewhere more relaxing, somewhere you can say “ahhh…” Or maybe it’s time for a little international travel (did someone say Paris?) to get out the overcast winter jitters. Or maybe you enjoy the staycation, relaxing in your own home without dealing with flights and travel. No matter what your spring break style, we’ve got the perfect looks for your vacation. This week, we picked out a few pieces that match some of our favorite spring break vacations.

Desert nights R13 Frayed Denim

Take me somewhere warm
Take a break in the desert. Spend the day out in the sun, then strolling the cool streets looking for the perfect dinner restaurant.
Toss on the R13 slouch short, Nili Lotan Verano Cami, and K Jacques Zenobie Sandal. Pair with the Le Kasha Cashmere Cardi for extra warmth as the day cools off to evening. 

NYC to Paris Spring Break Style

Big city, bright lights bound
No matter your destination, from NYC to Paris, this look will have you strutting your signature style down the streets of the big city.
Pair the Frank and Eileen Denim Barry Collared Shirt, Nili Lotan Salvora Jacket, 6397 Shorty Jean, Camo Golden Goose Sneakers and Jerome Dreyfus Felix Bag for a perfect night out on the town.

Mountain Bound Spring Break Vacation

You’ll find me on the slopes 
If you and your family just cannot get enough of winter sports, hit the road and drive north. Whistler spring breaks are filled with skiing, hot tubs, hot drinks, and great food.
When you’re not on the slopes, bundle up in the Reversible Isabel Marant Hanae Jacket, R13 Boy Skinny Jean, and your favorite pair of Golden Goose Slides

Staycation Spring Break Style

Home is where the heart (and my bed) is 
If your looking forward to a Spring Break Staycation, we feel you. Your own bed, your own kitchen, no traffic, no travel. Plus, all your other staycation friends are around. Gather up your best girlfriends and check out that restaurant that is normally too busy to get into.
Your staycation style is your own. Here’s what we would wear: The 6397 Good Vibes Tee, Veronica Beard Cara Jean Jacket, Aspesi Cotton Check Pants, and our Robert Clergerie Wendy Slides

How to Wear Spring Looks Now

Forecasters are predicting a warm weekend in Seattle with temperatures in the 60s and sunshine. We’re planning to spend it outside and in our spring looks. Winter may not be completely over yet, but we’re getting close. This past Monday, we saw the sun set after 6pm for the first time since October. And daylights savings time is just a few days away. Spring ahead means lighter mornings. Thank goodness. ☀️

Time to start spring cleaning and switching over our closets from winter wear to spring and summer colors. Even if it isn’t quite warm enough to be spring, we’ll show you how to wear spring styles now.

How to wear your spring looks now: 

Love Layers: Wear Spring Fashion Now

THE LAYER
The key to staying warm during Seattle Springtime is to layer. Pair a light-colored cardigan with your favorite tee and add a matching scarf (or one with a pop of color!) to keep off the cool wind and rain. Sneakers not only make this look super cool, but they’ll keep your toes out of the rain. 

Wearing: Nili Lotan Muscle Tee, Jumper Perforated Cardi,The Adaptation Hi Rise Straight Denim, Dianora SalviatI Astuto Scarf and Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Leopard Mid Sneaker

THE JEAN JACKET 
This classic piece never seems to go out of style, which we love. In the spring, it is the perfectly weighted piece to throw on over a summery dress. Pair with a closed toe sneaker and you’re ready no matter what the finicky spring weather decides to do.
Wearing: The Aspesi Linen Dress, Veronica Beard Cara Jean Jacket, Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Camo Sneaker, and Jerome Dreyfuss Maurice Bag

IMG_1261

THE SHOULDER
Sweater weather is over but that doesn’t mean you can’t still pull out your lighter sweaters and wear them throughout the winter/ spring transition. Pair a loose sweater with a pair of cropped pants and slide on shoes. Then, show a little shoulder for a warmer weather look. Pro Tip: If it gets a little chilly, snuggle into that sweater. We won’t tell. 
Wearing: The Nili Lotan Bogart Sweater, Nili Lotan Luna Pant, Robert Clergerie Alice Slide, and Marla Aaron Jade Disc Earrings

IMG_6614

THE BOOT
Spring fashion doesn’t mean we ditch our favorite boots. Pull them out and pair with a long light dress. Boots will give you a little extra warmth while keeping your feet dry during those spring rainfalls. Keeping the colors monotone and darker is the perfect way to start the transition to lighter, warmer weather clothes without diving in too fast. But if we’re totally honest, we believe black is a year round color. 
Wearing: The Pomandere Chiffon Tie Dress, Isabel Marant Dyna Boot, and Jerome Dreyfuss Bob Handbag in Snake

Spring ahead this weekend. Not just on the clocks, but in your wardrobe. We’re here to help, if you see something you love, let us know.  😘 ❤️

How to be Secretly Super Comfy and Still Look Chic

We’ve all heard it and likely we’ve repeated it to ourselves. It has been a fortifying mantra after a long night of standing in cute shoes, a motivation to get to the gym, a source of that knowing nod from a stranger at our newly waxed eyebrows. It goes: “Beauty is pain.” But we have a secret, beauty doesn’t have to be painful! This week, we’re giving ourselves a break and pulling out our favorite looks that are not only chic and fashionable, but are also incredibly comfy.

6397 Swig Blazer

6397 Swig Blazer | The Great Tee Shirt | 6397 Shorty Jean | Robert Clergerie Slides 
Rachael’s favorite 6397 Shorty Jean is both cute and comfy and her only and favorite way to wear a blazer is menswear style. A touch of sparkle transforms your casual look into one with edge and purpose. Marla Aaron chain detail below!

Marla Aaron Phyllis LockMarla Aaron Phyllis Lock with 24” Rose Gold Rolo Chain

R13-cashmere sweater with distress

The Great Hoodie | Raquel Allegra Muscle Tee | R13 Denim Boy Skinny in Jasper |
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Flag Sneakers 

Cutie in a hoodie. Sometimes the most chic looks are those that are super easy to pull together. Take this classic casual look up a notch by adding your Golden Goose sneakers and your favorite everyday necklace.

New Nili Lotan salvora blazer

NEW Nili Lotan Salvora Blazer | R13 Denim “Strange Love” Tee Shirt | 6397 Pull On Trouser | K Jacques Zenobie Lep Sandal | Hitchcock Madrona Chain Necklace
Patty loves these pull on trousers by 6397. They look like a Monday and feel like a Sunday. Causally pair with a blazer layered over a tee shirt to give off an air of chic confidence. Throw on your favorite pair of flats and add a necklace to complete the look.

Cashmere Distressed Sweater

R13 Cashmere Sweater with Distress | R13 Field Pant | Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Mid Horsy Sneaker in Leopard | Marla Arron Star & Gold Chain
Kayla’s got the subtle chic down. This isn’t your average sweatshirt, this is a cashmere distressed sweater that feels like a luxury no matter where you’re wearing it. Pair with your go-to R13 sweats and your latest pair of Golden Goose Sneakers. Adding a Marla Aaron necklace hints at your depth of fashion savvy. Toss on the R13 Denim Trucker Jacket and head out the door (details on the jacket below).

R13 Trucker Jacket

It’s March, which means we are either deep into our New Year’s Resolutions or we’ve accepted that next year might actually be the year to leap into action. That’s fine, remember, they say beauty is pain, but what’s really beautiful is what’s on the inside. Give yourself the self-care you deserve and treat yourself to a secretly super comfy look. You deserve it!

COMING UP: New arrivals! Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook for the latest looks available in store! 

A Spring State of Mind

You may have woken up to a dusting of snow on your lawn this morning, or heard that Western Washington was colder than Alaska’s arctic coast on Tuesday, and you’re probably more than a little jealous of the record-breaking 78 degree weather in NYC this week. We’re right there with you. Still, with this cold weather, we have to admit we’ve loved the sunshine! All this sunny weather paired with new spring arrivals in store has us in a spring state of mind.

This week, we’ve picked out just four of the many spring dresses we currently have in store at La Ree. If you’re prepping for wedding season, summer, or a late spring vacation, come by and get yourself out of the cold and into a sunny spring state of mind!
