Would You Wear: Preen For Aldo Giffee Sandal?

I’m all for Aldo’s collaborations with high-end designers at a lower price point, and I usually die for Preen, but I don’t know if these are working for me. They’re a replica of the shoes worn on the runway in the design duo’s heavily pixelated spring 2012 collection, but I wasn’t so sure of them…

Our Latest Fashion Secret: Aldo Accessories

You may know Aldo as a mall staple and slightly cheaper version of Nine West. While we knew the shoe store made accessories like belts and jewelry, we didn’t really consider that they could actually be cute. Turns out we’ve either been wrong all along or Aldo has hired a new accessories designer with a…

New Shoes Are Better Than A No-Good Man

There’s a superstition in Caribbean culture that says you should never buy your boyfriend or girlfriend shoes because he/she will use them to walk right out of your life. The one time I accepted shoes from a boyfriend (he wasn’t Caribbean), I hadn’t asked for them, and I broke up with him about a month…
