Tie Me Up: Lace Up Shoes & Block Heels

29th Mar 2014 / By Guest Contributor


The return of the block heel combines comfort and style all in one. Style icons of the 60s like Lesley Lawson- known as Twiggy and Mia Farrow made the block heel their signature look and go-to shoe.


The block heel can be dressed up or can also be a great addition to any casual, Spring look. Perfectly pair the block heel with  a mod shift dress as Mia Farrow so iconically wore in her role in Rosemary’s Baby paired with her signature “Vidal Sassoon” short hair cut.  This look is effortlessly chic and timeless as well as feminine when worn with a dress.

Try combining the studded Emanuele sandal to add a little edge to a vintage floral sundress or a 70’s flowy skirt.

You can’t go wrong with strappy shoes/sandals, they add a sexy touch to almost any look.  Wearing the right shoes can make you feel more confident and powerful and ready to take on the world and the gumption to change it, make it a better place.

The iconic pin-up girl icon, Bettie Page, was innocent yet sexy and her look was all about the shoes. Today, Dita Von Teese has an old-world beauty and charm and much of her look emphasizes her footwear, which most often consists of sexy lace up strappy shoes. Strappy shoes are a staple in any girl’s wardrobe.

Cutout lace heels add just the right amount of flirt to any cocktail dress for a fun night out on the town and if you are lucky, you might just show off some toe cleavage!

The teal Emmy lace up heel would jazz up any outfit and add a splash of color to even the simplest of looks.

Whether you choose a block heel or a lace up heel, you will surely make a statement for the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons.
