    We're always down for a little insider shopping scoop — especially when it comes to shoe intel. And, that's exactly what we're serving up for you today, with a bit of a surprise element to boot. It turns out the best-selling, top-rated shoe at Nordstrom right now is the "Olivia" sandal from relatively new shoe company Louise et Cie.

    In its third season, the affordable, high-quality line is just now starting to shine as it comes out of the shadows of its sister — or, shall we say, husband — company Vince Camuto. Yep, Louise et Cie is the newest shoe label launched by Vince Camuto, and it's named after and designed by Vince's wife, Louise Camuto.

    Offering a "quiet escape from the ordinary," the line leans toward the feminine with subtle details rather than in-your-face bling and offers walkable heel heights perfect for both work and weekend getaways. Bonus: The aforementioned top-selling shoe also comes in an especially accommodating size range of 4 through 12. With all that said, we certainly don't expect this to be the last time this line sells out at our favorite department-store destinations — we're anticipating big things as the label steadily expands and ramps up into fall '14. For now, peep the steppers currently on offer from Louise et Cie, right on the heels of the first week of spring.

A polar vortex froze over the winter months (literally), the ebola epidemic made a brief (yet frightening) appearance, and Eric Garner's death raised concerns over law enforcement's power over the civilians it's meant to protect. And, while New York current events dominated read
