Shoe News/ Wild Wednesday: Omelle's Andre & P.I.N.K. Leprechaun Martinis

After seeing them in ELLE Magazine, Lucky, Footwear News and some of our other go-to glossies, the Shoes & Booze team has been lusting for Omelle shoes for some time. We're happy to share the news that their website's virtual boutique is (finally) active! To celebrate, we're highlighting some of their shoe art for today's Wild Wednesday post.

Gone Fishing

The mercury's been doing a yo-yo move lately, and it's likely been causing you a bit of footwear frustration. Today's a day of fantasy. Pretend it's hot outside, and throw on a pair of super-chic sandals. OK, let's not go that far. Wear some pumps, but fantasize about these Andre sandals by Omelle (available at You may not be one for the outdoors, but this shoe's perch scale upper means you still appreciate its spoils. The 4 inch detailed heel, which we feel imitates both the fish bone structure and hunters' arrows, says you've got some strong instincts of your own. The actual design of the shoe is simultaneously simple and futuristic, so while you've got your eye on the prize, there's still something a bit practical about you. And then there's the neutral color of the shoe... it gives you almost limitles outfit options (except other animal prints).

Today's also St. Patrick's Day, so for we're doing something a little different. Since you probably can't wear the above shoe anyway (unless you're in the warmer parts of the country), we decided to give you a drink you can actually have. Irish drumroll please... It's the P.I.N.K. Leprechaun Martini (recipe & image courtesy of! This sweet, effervescent mixture of P.I.N.K Vodka, Bailey's Irish Cream and green creme de menthe (accented with chocolate syrup) will have Irish eyes smiling (and everyone else's too). Just remember that if you down too many, you'll need the luck o' the Irish to make it home without embarassing yourself in some way. Cheers!
