Taking Inventory: The Other Shoe Drops
OUR FAVORITE ITEM
A departure for the usually classic Tory Burch, these slingbacks with oversize rhinestone embellishments ($425) are more glam than preppy.
WHAT’S SELLING BEST
These shimmery linen sandals by cult brand Loeffler Randall ($595) are versatile, with a kick.
COVETED BY THE SHOP CLERK
With a devastating heel and luxe rosette accents, the Pandora pumps by up-and-comer Jerome C. Rousseau ($795) make Louboutins seem old hat.
THE LOWDOWN After outfitting the feet of shoppers in Beacon Hill for seven years, Moxie boutique owner Karen Fabbri is taking her footwear fetish west, opening a second location in Wellesley. The girly, 1,000-square-foot shoe parlor—designed by Charles Street neighbor Kristine Irving of Koo de Kir—will house a similarly well-edited selection of pumps, flats, and boots, many of which will be area exclusives, including Tory Burch, Cynthia Vincent, and Loeffler Randall. And on the handbag front, Rafe and Kooba will join an already-stellar roster of favorite brands like Foley + Corinna and Botkier.
