Ask Belle: Mules for Spring

Mar 18, 2015

Belle…

Mules are back? Awesome. I loved them in the 90s and I’m glad to see them again.  Can you suggest a few pairs in the $75-$150 range?  I am so excited to see your picks.

Age Ain’t Nothin’ But a Number

Yes, mule high heels are back in style.  I wish the heels weren’t as high as they are–I saw a cute pair with 6″ (!!!) heels, and I was so sad.  But here are a few pairs in your price range.

Now, I just need to practice walking in mules.  Need a trick to make walking in them simpler?  Grip tape on the soles gives you a little more traction, while a moleskin insole gives you a snug fit.

Like this style?  I also found it at Asos in black and at Charlotte Russe in tan.

Need a flat mule? I can’t decide if these look too much like bedroom slippers or not, but I still kind of love them.

    Ewww! No! No! No! No! No! Just the thought of the slapping against the foot sound they make makes my stomach turn.

  2. A says:

    As a tall girl, I love the concept of flat mules. Sadly, they make that terrible flip-flop “thwap” sound, which isn’t great in the marble halls of Congress. If anyone finds a pair under 3 inches, send them my way!

  3. Lexi says:

    Love the way they look, but that flip flop sound drives me crazy and doesn’t come across as very professional.

  4. B says:

    At first I thought this post was going to be a joke (early April Fools perhaps?) but alas…. NO. Just no.

  5. […] are making a comeback. Guess I need to start practicing walking in them because I am in love with Belle’s shoe picks on her […]

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
