Coclico Nuance, $320.

Yes, Coclico again! I must admit, I usually shy away from suede for its less hardy nature, but the suede on this shoe makes it feel aMAzing on the foot. (And it’s a blue suede shoe!) Since the first time I wrote about this brand, it has added a Sustainability page to its website, detailing its conscientiousness toward the materials it uses: leather, wood, cork, hardware and “internals.” I’m more impressed than ever. It epitomizes my favorite model for a socially responsible brand: “We hope to encourage higher and higher standards of quality, innovation and sustainability in our industry.”

Maybe it’s the shoes, maybe it’s because it’s Friday — but I had to play virtual dress-up with this one. Paired with a coral-colored vintage dress (I snagged this one a few years ago) and the Ashley Watson Recycled Leather Junco… WATCH OUT.
