Why Merino Wool?

Merino WoolThe holidays are behind us and hopefully we are all doing our best to stay warm and prepare ourselves for the cold winter that still lurks ahead. Staying warm is a must but of course, we do not want to sacrifice fashion!  Merino wool is an excellent solution for your winter wardrobe.

So why Merino wool?
Merino is a type of sMerino Sheepheep that is bred predominantly for its luxurious, soft fleece. Spain was most noted for its fine wool, particularly between the 12th and 16th centuries. Merino sheep have their origins in North Africa and the foundation flocks were most likely introduced into Spain at the end of the 12th century.  Spain controlled the wool market for centuries, banning the export of their prized sheep. The breed was named Merino after the royal sheep inspectors, ‘los Merinos.’

NEW Solid Opaque Thigh High Colors for 2011!

Thigh Highs for FallAs we all know, Thigh Highs have been one of the greatest hosiery fashion trends in 2010. We have seen them on the runways of major fashion shows, on the streets of local communities, and in every fashion magazine. Based on the latest trend forecast, this fun fashion accessory will continue into 2011. Yeah!  The Solid Opaque Thigh Highs are so much fun because they work so well with knee high boots or layered with shorter boots like Uggs that seem to be getting us through yet another cold season.

Thigh Highs can be sexy, comfortable, warm, and fashionable at the same time.



Monochromatic DressingAs I pour through fashion magazines and watch all of the beautiful models on television, I longingly admire their tiny waists and long leggy looks. Although most of us don’t live on carrots and lettuce and aren’t six feet tall, there are some fashion tricks that the professionals use to achieve the long leggy look.
At Chico’s they call it “column” dressing. That is, dressing in monochromatic colors from head to toe.  You match your top to your pants or skirt and then match your tights to the rest of the outfit. It creates a continuous column of color, and interest is added through using different textures and great scarves and jewelry. And you don’t stop there.


The PERFECT Gift Certificate

How many times do you get a gift and even though you love the giver, the gift is just not right for you.  You then have to decide whether to return it or just keep it so as not to hurt the giver’s feelings, then never use it, wear it, eat it, or just regift it.

The PERFECT gift is one that you know the receiver will be able to use.

At Foot Traffic we offer a gift certificate that takes the worry out of gift giving because who doesn’t need legwear and socks?!?

Holiday Legwear It’s that wonderful time of year when we have the opportunity to enjoy the company of friends, neighbors, and family.  Whether you are having people over or going out on the town, it is a time to get festive and expressive. With fashion options abounding, don’t forget your legs! From gloves to legwear, every item worn by a person adds to the overall appeal and personal expression.

Although pants and jeans have replaced skirts and dresses over the past years, we are seeing a return to the short skirt and black dresses,as a fun, flirty alternative, but worn with accessories and great legwear.  There are several ways to make a personal fashion statement at your holiday party.



When we think of lace we usually associate it with our most intimate apparel such as lingerie or nightwear. No longer do we hide this girly accent! Lace is now a delightful fashion focus that is fully exposed whether on a dress, scarf, skirt, or legwear.
