Style File: Sole Mate
If you want to start the new year off looking great from head to toe, we know just where to go. 7's Belkys Nerey shows us a place where shoes and accessories are your "sole mate" in tonight's "Style File."
WSVN -- Sometimes finding the right shoe, handbag or necklace can be as hard as meeting your soul mate.
So these two cousins opened a boutique in the Coral Gables area to make the love connection of accessorizing easy for us all.
Alexandra Luis, Co-owner, Sole Mate: "Sole Mate is a great one-stop accessory shop."
The new Sole Mate Boutique is first and foremost a shoe store filled with all sorts of fashionable footwear from sandals to boots to wedges.
Chavely Alvarez, Co-owner, Sole Mate: "We have Lovely People. They make really cute flats. We have Joe's Jeans shoes that has wedges. We have Jeffrey Campbell. We have LAMB. We have a lot of well-known designers as well as local designers."
So what's the hottest shoe to slip on right now?
Alexandra Luis: "I think the hottest type of shoes in our store is the bootie. I think everyone is looking for a gladiator-style bootie."
If you need something else to glam up your outfit, there are also purses, scarves and lots of unique jewelry.
Alexandra Luis: "We have a lot of pieces from a local designer, Martha Calvo, and she makes great pieces. She has these Indian-inspired pieces."
Another must-have jewelry line you're sure to fall in love with is Charmed by Myra.
Chavely Alvarez: "This is actually a one-of-a-kind piece. We're the only people in Florida who have this line. She uses different kinds of stones."
But the real reason they could be your soul mate is the range of reasonable prices.
Chavely Alvarez: "We wanted to create something for every budget. We have price points that start at $22 for a necklace to $300 for shoes. We have very good priced handbags for $68."
Belkys Nerey: "Anyone can find fashionable love with these sole sisters."
