In Vog We Trust!

Hey there Sole Foodies,
It's Linda again, and I have a serious problem. (Ok, maybe not that serious.) I cannot stop thinking about Fluevogs! Ever since Sole Food started carrying more styles from John Fluevog last winter, I have been smitten. These shoes make a big statement! While some artists use canvas, photography or sculpture to express their art, John uses shoes:

“I’m an armchair philosopher, and artist and a style monger, my shoes and messages are quite simply a part of me.”

I like to think that I am a "Fluevoger," with my BBC Radio boots. I can't count how many times I have received compliments from these boots and was so glad to help out some ladies in the store with a pair of the same ones last weekend. I wear these with everything and even commute on my bike with them.

New styles just arrived...

The CBC Radio shoe, in an awesome plaid pattern (available for men only.). And guess what? These shoes are VEGAN. Not into the pattern? We also have CBC Radio shoes in black, brown, and even green leathers. A true Fluevog classic.

The BBC boots (just like my brown ones above) are a great compliment to any outfit. For men and woman both, this boot comes in brown, black and burgundy.

The Bartoli ankle boot. A heeled boot inspired by John Fluevog's Giulia boot (which is also have in the store!)

One of my new favorites, the Promise shoe is a fun shoe. It has a small heel, layered leathers and a stamped pattern on the main part of the shoe. I would definitely wear these with black tights and my dresses.

Also part of the Radio series, the RCI boot for men is ready to slip on and go. It is seen here in charcoal gray.

Annie is showing off the RTP Boot! Details include super soft leathers, a grey buckle and strap across the foot with a matching strip along the back of the boot shaft, and two zippers on each side.

This is only a taste of Fluevog at Sole Food. Come see more for yourself!

What's New: Pallie and Cut N' Paste!
Hey there Sole foodies, it's Anilyn and I'm very excited to introduce you to our two new handbag lines for our fall collection, both of which I'm already in love with because of their quality and functionality.

Pallie by Pallie Jones
"Defined by classic lines, quality and function, every pallie bag is chic and always fun to carry."

Featured in such publications as In Style, People, and Lucky, Pallie bags offer unique bags that can be worn from the office to a night out. Season after season, these bags will prove to be your "go-to" accessory because of it's clean lines and timeless design.

My Top Picks (modeled by our local beauty Bri)

Featured in Classic Black and Deep Purple these bags boast smooth leathers, metal hardware, two adjustable straps for cross-body and over the shoulder wear, and multiple pockets for organization.

Cut n' Paste
"From the back of the closet to the top of the shelf; CnP bags are aged to recreate the natural look, feel, character and comfort of a second generation product.Our aging process creates intentional variations in color and surface texture that renders each piece uniquely one of a kind."

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Cut N' Paste offers vintage inspired pieces, soft pebbled leathers, and numerous pockets and zippers to help get you organized!

My Top Picks (modeled by our lovely Jen)

I like this black hobo because of it's size! Big enough to hold all of your necessities and more, this bag has bohemian flair and chic detailing.

Oooh...what's not to love about FRINGE? From it's cool grey color to it's choice of straps (one is a short chain linked strap and the other a long leather strap for cross-body wear), this bag is the epitome of hippie-chic cool.

So, if you find yourself needing something soft and durable to lug around, come over to Sole Food and try on one of our beautifully crafted bags.
