For those of a certain age, "tourist" pillows still found in vintage stores today, evoke fond memories of trips taken and cities visited. Now, these accent pillows are being updated and marketed as modern pillows with a retro vibe.
Catstudio New York City Pillow is just one of the many designs available. These pillows feature New York City as shown here, but also Chicago, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and even Paris. Each really is a work of art, with hand embroidered city attractions on tea-dyed cotton. Black velvet piping makes the entire pillows pop.
If you don't already have memories of these retro treasures, now you can create your own.
Basic mules and clogs don’t have to be boring or manly looking. The Rieker Blanche Mule shown here is a perfect example. With its feminine stitching, sterling hardware and green suede upper it's perfect for a dash to the market or a day at the park with the kids. Casual women’s mules should be a standard in every woman’s closet for the simple fact they are so easy to slip on and go. If they’re pretty--even better.
In our humble opinion, there is no shoe quite as perfect as a well-heeled mule. We love them as much for their versatile style as we do for their super easy slip on, slip off design. Let’s take a look at six ways you can wear a pair of mules depending on the style you choose:
Pair them with jeans and a casual T for an afternoon at the park.
Slip them on to run to the store to get milk.
Pack them in your suitcase for a weekend away in the country.
Wear them in the garden when you’re pulling weeds.
Put them with a great dress for a night out on the town.
Tuck them into your day bag to slip on after work.
While we are sure there are probably endless ways to wear a pair of mules, we will leave that to your imagination. Here are some of our favorite mules.
