the good old doc's

I don't know how you feel about this but I am just not the kind of girl anymore who can wear high heels for prolonged periods of time (we are not the glam girls we pretend to be, we actually got though jobs). Don't tell me these high heels were made for walking! Sure, I could and I do, if a look requires a longer/slimmer silhouette (that's what it's about, on photo shoots and the runway they are still a must), but only then. For every day, there are plenty of other great looking, less testing options.

I can assure you, the days when I put the heels on my feet and pack the comfy sneakers in the my purse are counted. And so are the times when I bring band aids in case I get a blister. I just don't feel that it's necessary to go through that organization every time. And the lord knows I got enough stuff to carry 'round!

Besides, have you not heard that we are heading back to high boots (over the knee) and flats and Creepers and Doc Martens boots? Well, get with it girl and if you are one of the lucky ones who got a perfectly worn in pair in the closet: PULL 'EM OUT!!?!

Now, you may want to polish those dusty suckers up a bit with some DIY styling:

Be inspired! Or - if you are not the crafty type - how about this rubber version from Ilse Jacobsen? They come in navy, red or black. They rock! don't tell me you didn't have any options, 'cause you have!

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
