Pocket Flops in Floc print
WHAT: Pocket Flops in Floc print
WHY: Your bag (more like luggage, depending on the day) already contains a Mary Poppins-worthy slew of goodies. A full arsenal of beauty products, from coiffure correctors to fragrant spritzers to multiple forms of ibuprofen, that rivals the selection at your local CVS? Check. How about a spare pair of heels, a belt to punch up a boring getup, and a scarf for chilly air conditioning overload? Oui. But what about a twee and toile-esque printed pair of flip flops for when said heels start to declare war on your pieds? Say bonjour to Pocket Flops, chic comfort in foldable form, crafted from recycled tire rubber and tucked into a cute matching satchel. No more hobbling necessary, hallelujah!

United Nude Block Pump Hi
WHAT: United Nude Block Pump Hi
WHY: Cause some whiplash and bit of rubbernecking with these sculptural, delightfully and slightly strange United Nude firecrackers for your feet. The gleaming, cherry-hued patent leather rounded-toe uppers strut atop equally shiny noir blocky, stocky heels. Delicious and a little bit odd--in the most endearing way possible.
