Is there any such thing as wardrobe essentials when it comes to shoes?

I think there is.

For me, it’s boots, flats and mules.

I wear them all year, anytime and anyplace. They just work with everything.

On holiday recently and shopping with a gal pal we went searching for boots. One name came up, Stuart Weitzman. I pretty much love every boot ever designed and while we have different taste, she echoed my sentiments. We didn’t start out with a fixed mind-set, we were open to all ideas, but we came home with yet again, fabulous Stuart Weitzman.

Being less practical, I was focussed on how the boots looked; she is much more sensible than I and had her thoughts placed where they should be, on comfort. I am a little bit practical; a handsome pair of shoes can easily seduce me. Luckily, the Stuart Weitzman’s are not only comfortable but also very good-looking. We both walked away happy.

Recently Stuart Weitzman has launched The Icons campaign, featuring Kate Moss and Gigi Hadid. Yes, they both look sensational but it’s the boots that have my heart beating. They just work for all ages. I am a major fan of the 5050 and RESERVE – they give the impression of being over the knee without really being too over the knee. Not to mention, they actually cover my knees. Dare I admit the knees look better covered? Who am I kidding? Of course, they do. Wear these boots with any dress and the outfit gears up a notch.

Then I am seriously in love with the MULETOWN– it’s the sweetest slip-on in a variety of silk satin shades. We fell for that one too. If you love vintage paste, they are the perfect pair to add a pin or two on top. The MYGUY flat is a loafer to love. This shoe is beautifully crafted and a refreshing change if you are one for simplicity and elegance. Once you slip into these, it’s hard to swap.

I needed to come home from holiday with a suitcase full of new shoes – not really – but they were too wonderful to leave. Besides, the three-shoe-rule only applies on departure.

These Icons, whichever ones are your favourites, should never be neglected simply because they aren’t the newest kids on the block. I am guilty of rushing out and wanting the latest and greatest.

These still are the latest and greatest. xv

Amazing, how a simple pair of boots and a white shirt can look so fabulous. If only our weather would permit, I’d wear this look today!


I agree Vicki! Stuart Weitzman are the most beautiful shoes and boots. The quality and design are second to none. I have to admit that they are a bit rich for my blood, but I have made them a priority in my life! I just picked up a gorgeous pair of mules 50% off so I watch for their sales and grab a good deal when I see one. Or if there is a pair I can’t live without, I do without something else. Great, comfortable footwear is so important to ones style. My clothes are quite simple and timeless so I always feel pulled together with great shoes or boots!


They are keepers, Jane.. I agree. They do have fantastic sales as well… which is always the best :)


I have the Access suede block heel sandals in black and in nude. I just love them for both style and comfort. The brand is something of an investment shoe, and Weitzman can be kind of high stylish, but, what the hey! Plus, I got the nude ones on sale for $139.00.


Vicki you have said for a few seasons now you love these boots, I need some help I purchases a pair last winter and have the worst time getting them on as you know there isn’t a zip. Once on I love them so comfortable/stylish and beautifully made.


I always wear a thin longer sock with mine and that makes it so easier… or “stocking socks” .. I know… keep that to ourselves… but then they glide on easily :)
