Sabah Style

Love them! Add these Turkish slippers to your summer wardrobe. The perfect everyday slides. Simplicity! No breaking in required. I was lucky enough to check them out in person when they recently traveled through Boston. Sabahs come in two styles: Sabah (leather loafer) or Baba (slip-on). I tried both. Babas in the cognac color easily compliment any style. A neutral tone that will only get better with time. Favorites for years to come. Ones that have earned a space in my suitcase for this summer’s travels.

Sabahs are handmade shoes crafted by a family team in southeast Turkey based on a traditional shoemaking method. A perfect partnership created by Mickey Ashmore who lives in NYC. They come in a variety of beautiful colors. Order online or follow their insta feed for pop up shops near you. Sabah

Just Add Some Attitude

 

 

Everyone needs a workhorse boot.  I have been contemplating Dr. Martens.  Originally designed for the British working class, they have evolved over the years to be a subcultural necessity with everyday appeal.  I like the versatility and utilitarian style of the Dr. Martens.  They simply mean business.  The yellow welt stitch, thick sole, and yellow heel loop with their brand label are the distinguishing features.  You can’t help but notice them on the street.  They are quality, modestly priced, and have been around since 1901.  They certainly compliment denim but would give a skirt or dress some edge.  Dr. Martens are for those who choose to deviate from the norm.  “Music is the heartbeat of the brand” thanks to Pete Townshend of The Who and the early multi-cultural ska-loving skinheads for changing the brand forever!  Always to be worn with your own individual style!

Clog Alert

Clogs are back in full force.  To me they will always be in style. Depends how you wear them. Gucci stepped up with their version.  I am not huge fan of the furry look and way too spendy for a clog even if you top them off with the horsebit detail.  But I love the outfit inspiration that I found on Pinterest to show them off.  I am a big fan of No.6.  Discovered them about 8 years ago at an under the radar store in Boston that has since closed.  In fact I still wear them.  Clogs are fab with any look and surprising comfortable.  No.6 offers many versions and they will become a quick favorite.  They are a good and reasonable investment.  No.6 all the way!

Fall Attitude Influenced By A Mens Classic Shoe

Currently contemplating swapping out the sneakers for a mens inspired classic shoe.  Wear them with jeans to dresses.  An edgy alternative to complement a feminine look.  Time to change it up and put your own stamp on your personal style.  This is a look that may not be for everyone but isostilo is digging the masculine touch.  Loafers, brogues, or oxfords is the question.
