Staff Juice Cleanse: Or, My Fight With a Mannequin

At Lettie Gooch, we are big believers in self-care. So, this April, we decided to do a spring reboot from JRINK Juicery (an awesome local company that sells their juices down the street at Pleasant Pops).

Get to Know: Gee'WaWa Shoes

Lettie Gooch carries Gee'WaWa shoes because they are unique, beautiful, and last for many walks around the city.

Gee'Wa Wa is known for making shoes with an artisan look. They are tastefully eclectic with an air of the bohemian. They hand select the highest quality leathers for their shoes from vegetable dyed leathers, distressed leathers, and calf suedes.

When you open your box of Gee'Wa Wa shoes, you will understand this concept. They are quickly becoming a favorite of fashionistas around the globe!

Right now, we have in store Gee'Wa Wa's spring gladiator sandal, and we can't get over the metallic color and comfy sole!

Style Inspiration: Belts

We are so excited to have in a ton of spring belts in all different widths and colors! A lot of our customers love belts as much as we do, but aren't sure how to style them. Here are a few looks from Pinterest that we recommend:

1. Wear with a spring dress: For a long time, I had a lovely bridesmaid dress sitting in my closet that I hadn't worn since my friend's wedding day. It was a cute springy dress, but just a little more formal than I like to dress. So, I decided to style it down. I threw on a brown leather belt and some funky patterned heels, and voila! A brand new dress. I also added a scarf and denim jacket, and tights in the fall.

2. Pull together contrasts: A belt can also make a mixed-pattern outfit look put-together. The look below seamlessly combines a denim shirt with frilly skirt.

3. Wear over layers: If wearing a cardigan over a light dress looks a little too bulky for you, bring it together at the waist with a belt. Suddenly, you have much more of a shape, and a very cohesive outfit--even underneath a light jacket.

4. Wear over a coat: This is one of the most beautiful ways to wear a belt. Try putting it OUTSIDE your outfit, by cinching together your coat with a thick belt. It doesn't need to match the coat; it just needs to keep everything together. It makes any coat look more fitted and flattering.
