What’s your jewelry style?
The FLATform is the platform sandal of the moment—and we think it’s the perfect summer shoe for two simple reasons:
1. They give you height with no pain.
2. They’re sporty and chic at the same time.
If you’re not quite ready to trade in your Birkenstocks for their younger sister (the flatform), then come shop one of our other shoe styles heading to Crossroads stores everywhere this week!
TRAX Platform Sandal in neon, $36.50.
EXTRA Studded Sandal available in black and tan, $55.
NAPA Leather Criss-Cross Slide in black, $36.50.
And for the men…
Check your local Crossroads for these new arrivals!
Tie-dye is such a fun print to wear, especially in the spring and summer when you want to add a splash of color to your look. Don’t go digging for that DIY tie-dye shirt you made at summer camp just yet; first, let us show you how to wear it the right way.
1. Paired with Neutrals
Tame your tie-dyes by wearing them in neutral—the muted color will instantly upgrade these wild prints from tacky to chic. Our Tie-Dye Tunic ($17.50) is available at Crossroads stores in peach and tan.
Guys look great in tie-dye. Head to your nearest Crossroads location for our men’s Tie-Dye Knit Tees ($9.50).
You may have heard that Crossroads is now open in Houston, Texas! Our newest store (number 35!) is nestled in the heart of the bustling Montrose neighborhood.
If you’ve never been to Houston, then you may not know that it is BIG. They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and they weren’t kidding—in fact, you can cram all of New York City, San Francisco, and Boston within Houston’s city limits. Don’t get overwhelmed by it’s size though, because we’ve made a list of our favorite spots around our store to fuel yourself before or after some serious Crossroads shopping!
Before a big shopping day, consider centering yourself with the 9:30 am yoga class at DEFINE body and mind, right next door to our store. This popular exercise chain hosts a variety of classes including barre and cycling.
Post-workout, head over to get caffeinated at Blacksmith. Whether you choose a simple black coffee or a Spanish cortado, Blacksmith will present you with a work of art. I ordered the homemade biscuits with crème fraîche and marmalade. Yum! They also offer a full breakfast and lunch menu that includes original and tasty items ranging from yogurt & granola to Vietnamese steak and eggs.
While I was in Houston, I went to Aladdin Mediterranean Cuisine three times for lunch. Seriously—it was that good. Everything from the hot and fresh pitas, the 8+ flavors of hummus, and the salads & sides (of which there must be at least twenty options to choose from) was amazingly good. The owner is a gem too!
For dinner and drinks, head over to Underbelly, just two blocks west of our store. Chef Chris Shepard is serving up locally sourced food inspired by Houston’s diversity. Shepard was awarded the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southwest in 2014, so you can be sure to get a truly Houstonian experience at Underbelly.
In the mood for Japanese? Head over to Osaka Japanese Restaurant for a roll and maybe even another cocktail (this place has a full bar to boot). Unlike its Michelin star counterpart Uchi across the street, this restaurant won’t require a reservation, so you can pop in to satisfy that sushi craving STAT.
Katz’s Delicatessen is open 24/7 and serves up perfect diner food in an old school deli atmosphere. Whether you get the pastrami or corned beef, you can’t go wrong at Katz’s.
