Footwear Fashion For Fall





Owner of SimplySoles.com, Kassie Rempel reveals what’s going to be hot this fall. If there is one thing on shoppers’ minds this season, it’s affordability. Hence, Kassie has expanded her exclusive lillybee line of shoes and handbags, which is created with style, comfort and budgets in mind. Besides highlighting budget friendly fashions, Kassie also sees a move toward luscious textures this fall and winter such as suede shoes by top women’s shoe designers, Bettye Muller, Chie Mihara, and Butter. Other textures which will be big this season are croc and ostrich print detailing. Another thing you’ll see a lot of is adornments such as ruffles, grommets and bows. You’ll also see a lot of rich colors. One hot trend you may like is the short cowboy boot, shown above by the popular FRYE line.


“On a cost-per-wear basis, shoes are one of the best investments in your wardrobe. Besides the

perfect black dress, classic white shirt and flattering pair of jeans, a pair of timeless shoes will last several seasons and transform your current wardrobe from fair to fab,” says Rempel.


Kassie Rempel is environmentally and socially conscious. All lillybee shoes are shipped to the customer in a durable, quilted shoe bags, designed for transporting shoes and also saving trees in the process by eliminating the need for a shoe box.
