Be Dramatic: UGG Australia’s Dreaux Boots


We’re featuring one of our favorite boots of the season: the Dreaux boots by UGG Australia! Class meets sass in this luscious leather boot that’s tall, sleek, and sexy. Here are a few reasons why they are a must-have buy of the season.

1. Quality Materials

Leather is luxurious, but can also be very stiff. Not with the Dreaux boot! The shaft is soft for the best comfort and mobility while the foot part features a firmer leather for durability and style. Inside, it’s lightly lined with plush sheepskin to give you that signature UGG Australia comfort that we all know and love!


2. Va-va-voom Height!

This boot is all about height. The platform is about an inch, the stacked heel is 4 inches high, and the boot shaft is a whopping 17.75 inches! The result is a tall and dramatic silhouette that’s achieved by drawing the eye up while slimming the legs. Since the lengthy illusion is based on the height of the boot rather than the height of the heel, you’re feet will be much more comfortable throughout the day.


3. Showing Some Leg Without Showing Them Off

Like your favorite pair of skinny jeans or a flattering fitted top, the Dreaux boots show off your shape without showing off much skin. It’s the perfect piece of footwear that matches nicely with winter outerwear and also makes dresses more wearable during the colder months! The overall look is very elegant with a hint of fierce attitude. Even though over-the-knee-boots are dramatic looking, they can actually be quite versatile. Get inspired by these celebrity looks!

On Saturday, November 23, 2013, Designer Studio celebrated the grand opening of their newest clothing store location in El Paso, TX. The new boutique opened at The Fountains at Farah shopping complex. It is the company’s third location and is bringing the same designer brands and infamous customer service to the El Paso area. To celebrate, Designer Studio had offered 10-50% off of selected items during the day of the grand opening.

The new store is a 3000-square-foot space on the lower level of the complex that faces the restaurants and the central fountain attractions. It features a brand new interior design by Brian Dyches of Atmospheric Experience Design Group/Openeye. Dyches is based in Southern California and has worked on projects for brands like Kate Spade and Lucky Brand Jeans. Designer Studio’s custom interior design is an open concept that features eye-catching details like LED screens, stunning shelving displays, and will also include a large artistic mural.

This is a new multi-brand experience for the El Paso area as Designer Studio personally hand selects merchandise that are exclusive, unique, and fresh. The company is always looking for new styles to add to their footwear and clothing collections. They attend fashion shows and events on a regular basis to bring their customers the most current trends. The Southern California store is known for featuring well established brands, like Lacoste and UGG Australia, alongside upcoming innovations. For example, Designer Studio is one of the first stores to introduce luxury Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watches to the American market. The watches are crafted in Switzerland and are influenced by the same innovator who founded the Chevrolet Motor Car Company. Currently, Designer Studio is featuring a limited edition collection which are sold exclusively online.

In addition to unique shoe and clothing selections, Designer Studio is highly recognized for customer service. Whether customers decide to shop in-store or at, they aim to provide a personal and enjoyable shopping experience. In fact, the company was recently reviewed as “Excellent” by StellaService, an independent ratings company that evaluates online retailers. The same company has reviewed other online businesses such as Amazon and Estee Lauder.

Designer Studio, Inc. is a fashion retail store head quartered in San Ysidro, CA and opened its doors to the public in 1995. In 2011, a second store opened in Mercedes, TX and a third in El Paso, TX in 2013.

New to DS: Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watches


Designer Studio is proud to introduce Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watches! What makes them different from the ordinary? Each watch is carefully designed and crafted in Switzerland using a blend of the finest materials, technology, and Swiss traditions. The styles range from classic to innovative, but all reflect a racing heritage. In fact, Louis’ number, the number 8, is marked on most of these fine crafted time pieces. Also, our collection features limited edition watches and are special marked. For example, the 5200 model that’s pictured above has the number 037/500 engraved in the back. It means that out of the 500 watches of this model that exist in the world, this watch was the 37th one manufactured. If you’re looking for a luxury watch that’s a little more energetic and inspired, a Louis Chevrolet Swiss Watch is an excellent choice. The brand is new to the American market and we’re excited to be part of this new chapter of their legacy!

Shoe Parts That You Should Know

When you shop online for shoes, the description may throw in terms like “vamp” or “counter”. Shoes have quite a bit of terminology that can be confusing, so we decided to help you out. We didn’t list all the terms or all the shoe styles, but these are the ones you will most likely come across when shopping online.


The above image can help with other styles like sneakers for men and women. The construction is a little different, but the main parts are generally the same. Shoes with tall heels, like women’s high heels or high heel boots, have a very different shape and certain terms are more common, like “shank” and “breast”.


One last thing to note is that you come across the word “sole” it usually refers to the outsole. Remember, the outsole is the part that actually makes contact with the ground. Now that you have a better understanding of the shoe terms, get shopping and know exactly what you’re looking for!
