Menswear-Inspired Shoes

Paul Green is at it again. As the menswear-for-women trend escalates, you can count on this company to keep pace. _101554556

These oxfords have the tailored look of a man’s shoe, enhanced by a kiltie, studs, and crystals that lend a girlie vibe. They’re perfect with skinny ankle pants (sockless, of course) or with tights and a short skirt.

My Take on the Oscars 2017

The clear winner at last night’s Oscars was 16-year-old Auli’i Cravalho, and I’m not saying that just because my friend Sam Saboura styled her. I’m saying that because he did a spectacular job, and she looked stunning in everything she wore.

Borrowed from the Boys

The allure of skinny pants and leggings continues to escalate, and what better way to freshen them up for fall than with a pair of menswear-inspired shoes.

These Paul Green oxfords absolutely hit the mark. They’re stylish and oh-so-comfortable, since Paul Green is perhaps the only shoe company that recognizes the existence of an arched foot. They look fabulous with ankle-length pants and full-length leggings, and showing a bit of bare ankle gives the borrowed-from-the-boys look a feminine spin.
