Shoe Insider: Naya ‘Palomi’ Sandal

Raise your hand if you’ve ever experienced the joy of finding a gladiator sandal that you knew you couldn’t live without? *Raises hand*

Ever since my black gladiator sandals died (the heel broke off), I’ve been on the hunt. Not only do I want cute, by I want comfy. You know that’s my favorite phrase.

That’s when shoe company Naya walked into my life and just in the nick of time. I was seriously ready to give up. Enter the Palomi Sandal ($129.95), in all its glory. I love the herringbone braid feature that runs down the front of the sandal. They have vegetable-tanned leather straps, a contoured footbed, an outsole containing 10-15% cork or rice husk, and an adjustable Velcro®-strap closure.

At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like them. I’m so hesitant when choosing shoes over the internet. You don’t know how they’re going to fit. That’s the most stressful part, isn’t it? I’ve already worn these sandals a few times and have done quite a bit of walking in them and I have NO complaints yet. They’re comfortable, easy to put on, and chic! They run pretty true to size and I can’t wait to wear them more. I already know I’ll wear these out too! You can find them at Nordstrom in various colors and up to a size 12!

Lookbook: Gunas the Eco-Vegan Luxury Handbag

In today’s Eco & animal friendly fashion world, I’m always interested to see what new item will catch my eye. I was supposed to attend the launch party of the Gunas collection below, but couldn’t make it. All I have is this lookbook to drool over. This Eco-vegan luxury line. I do wish I could feel the handbags myself, curious about the quality. What do you think? Is Eco the way to go?
