I got my first pair of Margaux heels two years ago and they are among my most favorite shoes. I had been invited into the store to meet the co-founders and was excited to meet them as I’d heard such wonderful things about their business. But didn’t think I would find anything as I don’t wear a lot of ballet flats. (I love the look, but something about my foot shape. I’d do a comfortable low heel ANY day over ballet flats.. just need a little more support!)
And then I tried on their leopard heels. I still remember sliding my foot into the heel and being like “oh WOW, that’s comfortable”. It felt like my feet were being surrounded by a cloud. Supportive and so comfortable, with no break-in time. The heel is 2.5″ which for me is the perfect everyday height. And the Italian suede molds to your feet with time.
I still wear my leopard pair constantly. They are the perfect shoe to put on when you want to look as though you’ve made an effort but wish you were in sweatpants and sneakers. And two years later they are still in perfect shape. Besides the pumps I also have these sandals and love them but I have them in a bright yellow gold, but they have a ton of other really beautiful colors.
Classic Fall Style with Margaux
Recently, the brand reached out to collaborate (and to send me a second pair of pumps) and I could not be more excited. This time around, I went with classic black. They are perfection. I sometimes tend to pick the cool color or pattern instead of the classic, which is silly as you wear the classics more… And I LOVE the black and have been wearing them constantly.
I am going to tell you more about the brand, but also wanted to share – I got you a code! GRACE15 will get you 15% off sitewide on the items you choose for one week (thru 11/3). Also, a sizing note! I’m a true 8.5 but if I’m between sizes I almost always size down. I take a 39 medium in all Margaux shoes.
A little more about the brand! Margaux is a female-owned brand (founded by two friends: Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson), and everything is made at a family-owned factory in Spain. They were searching for a perfect wear-everywhere shoe that worked for all occasions and wouldn’t get uncomfortable.
I also really love that they are size inclusive (yes that is a thing with shoes, too. I have pretty average feet learned from girlfriends how hard shoe shopping can be if you wear a very small or large size). Margaux shoes are available in a size range from US 3 to US 14, with all widths… narrow, medium, and wide; practically guaranteeing the perfect fit… and if for some reason they don’t work out, shipping and returns are always free. They have incredible shoes. Flats, pumps, sandals, boots… though I do wish they’d make a knee high!
I’m not a huge fashion person so this is my idea of fall fashion. A long, tailored blazer, a great tee, a great pair of jeans that fit perfectly, and a classic pump. Maybe swap the blazer for a leather jacket at night. Or swap the pump for this pair of boots.
