Miista (UK + Spain): Old World Chic
Since I’ve grown very fond of a brand that produces dresses and skirts mainly in midi-length, I’ve been forced to look at heel options that I am actually able to wear on a daily basis. I prefer flats for many reasons (one of them being I always am carrying so much stuff with me that it’s hard to balance on heels), but for midi, flat is not ideal in my opinion.
And I don’t know if it’s me, but for some reason, I’ve only seen stiletto options in my universe for the longest time, so when Miista entered my field of vision I immediately took notice. Great heights and block heels! Also, love the more square approach to the toe area. At the same time, they’re super feminine with a slightly retro vibe (ranging from the 50s to the 70s). I’ve collected a few pairs over the years and can also attest to their comfort.

Price point: Starting at $280. The diffusion line E8 starts around $140
My favorite: Her corduroy styles because it reminds me of the 70s. So do her boots.
Notes: Her most favorite style is the Taissa. It comes in many different colors, but be warned that the classic sell out almost immediately, so put yourself on the notification list.
