Troc Trend: Clogs!

The rumors are true - the controversial clog has returned. The wooden heels stomped the runways at Chanel and Celine and have somehow found their way onto retail shelves. We at the Troc aren't necessarily flocking to get the traditional shape in stock; we searched and searched and managed to find our ideal version, Seychelles Twistin' the Night Away. It's feminine, flattering shape has the feel of a trendy clog without the dated heaviness, which explains why women have wandered into our little shop to snap up this sandal.

Although the name suggests this shoe will amp up your evening, I find it to be perfect for day as well (it's screaming to be paired with a breezy sundress). The 4 1/4-inch heel may intimidate you at first, but the 1-inch platform makes it remarkably comfortable for its height. We chose it in a gorgeous natural cream that will bring out the best in your summer tan and look phenomenal with everything from pastel hues to neon prints. Not to mention it's ridiculously reasonable price point - you can pick up this flirty, multi-functional sandal for a mere $110.

For a summery daytime look, I'd love to pair these shoes with a silky pair of shorts, a striped tank, and a bold printed bag courtesy of Rafe (now on sale for just $195). For a more bohemian vibe, throw on a light summer scarf and pile on a bunch of bangles - we carry some spectacular Alex & Ani adjustable sets that range between $78 to $165. If the nighttime look is what you're after, try a playful romper in a pretty print, a great cuff and pair of hoop earrings (both Kara Ross, $295 and $195, respectively). I've been crazy about nail polish lately, as well - try a pastel pink shade like Pepto Pink by Rescue Beauty Lounge ($18).

Stop by soon or give us a call to get your hands on this featured pair of footwear!
