July is here and that means some steamy nights! Messy up-dos, flirty little dresses and some seriously sexy heels are all the weapons I need to face soaring temperatures on those hot Saturday nights. Recently, I added the most perfect summer wedges to my wardrobe — just right for Saturday night on the town! These “Basket” wedges from Two Lips Shoes are ideal for everything from dinner at a café on the waterfront, to early evening strolling down Philly’s famed South Street, to a summery outdoor concert.
The 4” heels (plus platform) give me a little extra height (A huge bonus since I’ve always lamented my paltry 5’5”) and are simply gorgeous. The upper is vegan-friendly faux leather and is covered with brightly colored sequins and gemstones. The shoes have a flattering ankle strap and a trendy, strappy look. The cork wedge is ultra light and the shoes are well padded, so they really are wonderfully comfortable. Retail $79.99
Two Lips Shoes designs a whole range of chic and comfortable footwear for women. Whether you’re looking for dress shoes, flats wedges, or boots, the Two Lips look is easily recognizable — fashionable, edgy, and most of all – fun!
According to company reps, “In 1982 two brothers, a fourth generation shoemakers, embarked on pursuing a dream in Los Angeles, CA. From humble shoe-making roots, the brothers passionately and diligently designed and manufactured women’s shoes and whereby they established the Two Lips brand. Soon, they expanded to manufacturing shoes for retailers and even opened up a few Two Lips store fronts. This ultimately led to rapid success in the footwear industry.
Today, Two Lips Shoes is still family owned and operated however, the brothers’ once humble dream has matured into an Enterprise. It has soared to tremendous heights, boasting multi individual brands under the Two Lips umbrella. By passing the torch down to the next generation, the shoemaking legacy is becoming refreshed, revitalized, and a beacon of inspiration for the fashion industry.
Naturally, the line has been discovered by great stylists everywhere and shoes from Two Lips can be seen featured in major fashion, style and women’s magazines – from Regard, to Glamour, to Southern Bride.
Want to get your own? Two Lips Shoes can be found at retail stores, online stores, fine department stores and specialty stores — including a great range of choices at one of my favorite retailers, DSW Shoes. Or you can see the entire selection at the Two Lips online store .
Now, I just need a great place to go dancing this Saturday! Suggestions?
