hello perfect Christmas present!

OK, I'm gonna blow the lid off one of Calgary's best secrets ... our earrings make THE BEST gifts! They're so so pretty, you don't need to worry if they'll fit and they're so (how do we put this ...) cheap!!! So stock up! For your friends, family members, dog walker, secret Santa, hairstylist - if you need a gift for a girl, these are a pretty swell option :) We just received a big delivery too so our selection is pretty huge.

My overlooked little friend ...

For some reason they been overlooked by many, including myself. But that I've tried them on I immediately had to have them and they've become a wardrobe staple! So soft and comfortable, and they are perfect for getting out and enjoying this fall weather. I walked 40min to work in them today and my feet were absolutely thrilled with my new purchase. At size 10 I'm not an ideal foot model, but take a look and see what you think!

PS - they're only $115!

who's ready for some treats ...?!?

Yep - we're those kind of people. It's shameless really :)

Daisy, unfortunately is NOT one of those kinds of people (oops, I forget - she's actually a dog) and was only willing to keep the costume on as long as I had a treat held over my head. Bojangles however is much more willing and will be sporting his costume all week at the store - stop by and say hi!

PS - we've got lots of great boots too!

Yep, they come in PURPLE!

And they're even better in real life! ;)

We had these boots last year and they FLEW out of here - 100% waterproof, rated to -25, awesome grippy soles and cute as heck. If you're in the market for a pair of winter boots this year, you might not want to wait for the snow - we had quite a few disappointed gals last year with cold feet and dreams of this boot! We've also got them in charcoal, a shorter version in white and a few dressier styles and heels for our oil and gas employees downtown. All super warm and cozy. Bring it on, winter!

Mama MIA!

This boot is called Ximena by MIA and it is PERFECT for fall! Stylish, comfy and goes with everything. Yikes - we just have too many awesome boots this season!

PS - if anyone has any ideas for how to pronouce 'Ximena' please share! I'm thinking Shi-meena????

my boots got me lookin' so crazy in love!

Aren't they just the COOLEST???? These bad boys are made by Luxury Rebel and they have captured my heart. I love them - they actually make me feel like if I ran into Kate Moss on the street she would probably compliment my boots! They have a wire sewn along the hem of the leather cuff that lets them hold whatever shape you mold them into. I like keeping one side done up and the other side folded over just a bit, but you can play around to find what works for you.

swept off my feet!

Oooh - I love these boots! We first saw them back in March and I haven't been able to stop thinking about them! Two thoughts have been running through my mind ever since - please don't let the heel be too high (it's not!) and pleasepleaseplease let them fit my calves (they do!!!). They're going to be so perfect with all of the 70's inspired clothes that are coming out this fall - someone take me shopping!

we go way back

We think that this pump is the cat's pyjamas. And we're not alone! This is Acrea by TSUBO, their signature pump that they relaunch every season. Which means at Luna Blue we have been selling it now for three years! The reason why they can't stop making it (and we can't stop ordering it) is because it is sheer perfection! The angled strap is so flattering on the leg and it has a very classic yet funky silhouette that never goes out of style. But it's secret weapon is that it is probably one of the comfiest pair of heels you will ever own! It doesn't look like it should be, but it is. Trust us :) Since we have been selling it for so long, we have heard back from LOTS of our customers who have bought it and LOVE it, and are excited to see it appearing each season in new colours so they can justify a 2nd (or 3rd or 4th!) pair.

For fall we have it fatigue (pictured) and in black. Welcome back Acrea!

these are pretty awesome ...

Hmmm, I tried my best to describe this boot, but I think our friends at did a MUCH better job! Here's what they have to say on a recent blog entry:

One classic that we love every year is the Miz Mooz Bloom wedge boot. With soft, faux fur lining, a lightly padded midsole and an elastic gusset at the top of the shaft, the Bloom boot fits perfectly and feels amazing. The decorative buttons combined with the slouch details give the Bloom a vintage-inspired aesthetic that stands the test of time.

All I can do is nod my head and agree. That's EXACTLY what the Bloom boot is like :)

BONUS: Miz Mooz came up with the brilliant idea of introducing this boot in a larger calf width! The standard calf width is already on our shelves and we'll have the newer calf width version in our store SOON!

PS - also put together some really cute outfit ideas for the Bloom boot - check it out here

an apology to my size 10 friends ...

cause this one is MINE! I'm sorry - I have to - I love them!!! They're so fun & different from what everyone else will be wearing. When you wear them stretched tall they sit nice and high on the leg, and when you slouch them down and they look super cute and cozy. Plus the sweater detail at the calf means they will fit any calf. Sigh .... I'm gushing, I can't help myself!

- They do fit on the big side and I ended up buying the Euro size 40 instead of my usual 41 so we do have a 41 available that will fit our size 11 girls!

The colour! The heel! Sooo lovely!

These little beauties from Miz Mooz that are going to go with everything! They're really cute with rolled up jeans and a little blouse but they'd be equally awesome with dress pants for work.

Ahhhhh ....!

We’ve always prided ourselves at finding shoes & boots that are super cute but still comfy. Well these lovelies from Portugal have really raised the bar! They are absolute HEAVEN for your feet! In the three years we’ve been open they just might be one of the comfiest boots we’ve tried on (flats included!). Try them on and you’ll be in the same dilemma we are - brown or black? Brown or black?

And it gets better: they will fit calves of all shapes and sizes! They have a velcro panel down the length of the boot (don’t worry - you can’t see it because it’s hidden by the leather). This gives us a few inches to play with to get the perfect fit for your leg. Brilliant! And gorgeous! Truly the Dolph Lundgren of boots ...(apparently Mr. Balboa's nemesis is a genius - google ‘smart celebrities’ and he’s at the top of every list. Who knew?!?).

More Miz Mooz!

So here's the story with this shoe. It's one that we received last month in taupe - so flattering, so comfy, goes with everything - and we sold out of it almost immediately. We were fortunate to get our hands on some pewter ones, and they just arrived today, along with the sun!

Come and get them while you can!
