Saint Francis Couture

Saint Francis Couture designs and manufactures high fashion, animal friendly shoes, accessories, and they are now introducing apparel.  The company's founder and designer is Tere Albanese.  Tere is a vegetarian who eats nothing with a face or heart and refuses to wear anything made from animals.  She is a former hair stylist and high school English teacher.  "I thought the world needed some high fashion, moderately priced, comfortable, but sexy, shoes and accessories that were cruelty free," said Tere.  "So I started drawing.  Saint Francis must have helped me because I had no idea how to draw."  The company is named after Saint Francis, who is the patron saint of animals.  Her first line is the Africa Collection, which honors African Wildlife.  This month's featured product is the Africa Sandal 3" Heel.  This sexy sandal will turn heads, but the way it feels you’ll think you were wearing flip-flops.  6 - 12 in whole and half sizes.

What girl doesn't love fashion?  I love animal print styles but I am also an animal lover and I will not purchase any animal print unless it is faux.  

I love a pair of heels! Since I work in a corporate environment, I often wear heels to work Saint Francis Couture sent me these gorgeous Africa Sandal 3" Heel – Sandal. It is super comfy and trendy.  I love the open toe so that I may show off my pedicure. These look great at the office or with a nice pair of jeans.  For a three inch heel, they are very comfortable. 

They also generously sent me the African Clutch Bag.  This is great for any occasion. It may be used at work  or an evening on the town.  It is a good sized clutch.   I think that the Saint Francis Couture Logo adds classy appeal to the bag.

Saint Francis Couture also sent me the Africa Belt. This stylish belt will lend appeal to a top or sweater that hangs below the waist, dressy pants, or even nice jeans. The belt buckle lends additional appeal to an already trendy belt, without overdoing it.

I love each piece I was sent and have received RAVE reviews at work!
