Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Miami may be one of the vainest cities

in the country -- but at least we look good doing it. In that spirit,

we're indulging our love of the superficial by spotlighting fashion

finds in the 305.

The Find: Super-soft leather and patterned canvas moccasins with a memory foam insole and driving shoe bottom by Alessandra Gold.

The Shop: Available at Alessandra Gold Concept Store, a new multi-purpose store in Midtown. This store has men's shoes, heels, these driving shoes/moccasins, vintage finds, a house label and a handful of others -- oh, and a photo studio where both look books and Jamaican music videos are shot on any given day. Alessandra is big in Taiwan, her native Brazil, and in New England, but this is her first outpost in Miami. We welcome her concept.

The Reason: There's nothing like a good shoe, the kind that

doesn't leave you blistered and whining and trying to convince yourself

that beauty is pain or some other adage your abuela drilled into your head. This is beauty sans pain, plus leather.

The Cost: $139

The Style: The girls that street style photographers

are capturing day after day aren't lipstick-heavy girly-girls anymore.

They're in sharply tailored looks meant for a smart, cool chick, the

kind of girl who carries her iPad in a snakeskin Diane von Furstenberg

case.

It's a new day, fashion-forward girls -- even Anna Wintour

has been seen in flats. The most modern wardrobe a girl can have right

now is a clean-looking working one. Pair these shoes with sharp pieces

from The Row, Olivier Theysken's Theory, or AllSaints for a Savile Row look that's perfect for the Magic City.

Wear

these to CVS or to a lunch meeting in Midtown -- then stop into

Alessandra Gold's store and buy them in another color for tomorrow.

Visit Alessandra Gold's Design District store at 3326 N. Miami Ave. to try on a pair.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
