From sneakers to slides, the fashion world has given its stamp of approval to “comfortable” shoes, and their latest recruit is the block high-heel sandal. Easy to walk the cobblestone streets of Paris in and elevated to boot, it’s a fabulous example of form-meets-function footwear. Street-style favorites Miroslava Duma, Caroline Issa and Evangelie Smyrniotaki (pictured above) pair their’s with everything from relaxed denim to tailored separates. BYO pose.
Twice a year, New York Fashion Week turns media attention to runways, bright lights, style heavy-hitters and of course, to-die-for collections.

My philosophy around taking care of my own body is pretty simple: I believe in eating more vegetables than French fries overall, drinking lots of water and sweating for at least 30 minutes a day, whether it’s from running or scrubbing the bathroom floor. I do not believe in consuming hard drugs or munching on cotton balls to curb hunger, two tactics of many that were described to fashion reporters this week.
