Classic Fall Style with Margaux.

Classic Fall Style with Margaux

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.

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 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!

the leopard heel

These leopard heels are perfection. I am someone who believes that leopard is a neutral (it is!!!!) and I adore these and wear them with everything. The most likely pairing is of course denim, but I’ll add that these + jeans and a pop of red (a sweater or even red earrings) is one of my go-to’s.


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.

the classic black pump

While my taste can get colorful and a little “out there,” I have been wearing these black suede pumps on repeat. They are incredibly comfortable, and go with everything. They’re the perfect “I really don’t want to put heels on but should wear heels” shoe. I love them in an all black look, or with navy as pictured above.

    I’ve been thinking about buying the Margaux flats for a while but just haven’t pulled the trigger yet—thanks for the code! I am definitely going to now!

    Also, re: sizing. My foot size is alll over the place for shoes so I filled out a profile on their site with exact measurements, then emailed their customer service to see what size they would recommend. They emailed me back right away with their recommendation! So awesome!

    Hi Grace! This isn’t necessarily Margaux-specific but was wondering if you weather/suede/leather spray shoes to keep them looking nice in the city, and if there’s something specific you use? I’m always worried about ruining suede!

    • grace at the stripe says 10.27.20

      I don’t! I know they exist, I just tend to be really careful with my nice shoes and if it’s raining or yucky I wear sneakers, etc! That’s not to say that what I do is the “right” thing, I’m sure a protectant would be great I just don’t personally use one.

    Hi! Just FYI none of the links worked to Margaux! It kept saying error the host hasn’t activated the sale link. Xoxo

    • grace at the stripe says 10.27.20

      Ugh I’m so sorry about that – they were affiliate links but looks like share-a-sale is having issues. I have swapped them out for regular links!

  6. molly says 10.27.20

    hi—just wanted to let you know, it seems none of the links are working/active. I will wait to “click” so I can “click” through your site.

    I am looking to buy a pair. Do you know if they usually do a Black Friday sale? And if so, would the sale be any better than your 15% discount code? 15% off seems like a good deal.

    • grace at the stripe says 10.27.20

      Hi Melissa,
      I wasn’t sure (they never have sales!) so I googled some black friday roundups from last year. Looks like they had 20% off last year! I will def include them in my BF / CM guide this year but am honestly not sure if they will repeat the 20% off – so hard to say!

    Love Margaux! Those block pumps look fabulous on you, Grace!!

  9. Lydia says 10.27.20

    The black pumps are definitely going on my “investment purchases” list! Love how you styled them!

  10. Kristin says 10.28.20

    Apologies if I missed it – where is that coat from? I love it!!

    Grace, hi! How has the calf hair on the toe of the leopard pump worn? I have Birdies in leopard and the toe is almost bare after less than a year.

    Great post! Love our outfit with that great coat!
