If you live in Portland (or come to visit), make your next shopping excursion includes Gild on SE Division. They seriously have my favorite shoe selection in Portland. I’m in love with everything! Gild offers a curated, yet relatively large, selection of high-quality and stylish women’s footwear. Style offerings range from classic to trendy, so you’re sure to find something you love whether your personal style is fashion forward, comfy casual, or conservative. Best of all, shop owners Erinn and Nicole are there to help you find your perfect pair (or more!) of shoes. Today I’m sharing my top 5 shoes currently available at Gild. Some of these products are also available to shop on their website, so I’ve added links to those.
Pick #1- Patchwork Bootie by Freebird
I’m loving the detail in the bootie from the stitching to the distressing and of course the patchwork leather, this bootie will work anytime of year. Such a unique option.
Pick #2- Strappy-detailed sandal
I love the detailing on these strappy brown leather sandals. It makes this on-trend style a bit more interesting and will surely be a cute statement at your summer events. This sandal is great for so many summer occasions and could even work at a casual wedding. This shoe is not available through the website, but check with the store for this item.
Pick #3- Flat sandal with buckle
I love these so much! They’re super versatile… could easily be worn to the office, with jeans, and summer dresses. Here is a link to the white option online as well. These are a must have!
Pick #4- Suede mule flat in yellow
Ok I love the pink too, but yellow is really on-trend this season. I think incorporating the color into an outfit is a great way to work the trend without having to make your whole look about yellow. These make a great weekend shoe. Obviously, they’re going to be pretty comfortable so can easily be worn while running errands or wandering any Portland outdoor summer event. They pop, so they can be worn out to punch up an outfit a bit. Simple, but super cute!
Pick #5- Embellished bootie
While it’s hard to pick from all the amazing shoes, these are probably my favorite. The leather is super soft and has the perfect amount of distressing and character. I think these make a great summer bootie, as they can be worn with shorts, skirts, or dresses. These would be an awesome festival shoe! These are on my wishlist for sure. I have a birthday coming up, so you may see these again on the blog soon! 😉
Gild also offers a beautiful selection of locally made artisan jewelry, as well as handbags, sunglasses, and other accessories.
Gild is the perfect place to head to with your friends for a fun shopping date. You can grab and ice cream at Salt’n’Straw after or, even better, a happy hour cocktail from Ava Gene’s.
