Shoes. Food. Shoes. Food.
If forced to pick between the two, we're not sure if our feet or our stomachs would come out on top...and it's a cruel thing that Marais did with its summer '13 lookbook, to make us have to choose. Themed "Marseille Picnic," the shoot pairs the shoes with a delicious spread of fruit, baguettes, desserts
, and more, as well as some less-appetizing dishes like cupcake-with-whole-carrot and what looks like a hardboiled egg and lime jello salad.
What's probably more across-the-board sweet are the shoes itself: Cork wedges, striped espadrilles, T-strap sandals, bow-topped loafers, and lace-up oxfords straddle a line between tomboyish and sweet that makes us very, very happy. True to form, all styles ring in under a very reasonable $175 (and for our vegan readers, many of the styles are cruelty free — just avoid anything made in suedes and silk/satins). The kicks are available right now on MaraisUSA. Shop all the styles, here
