A welcome addition to Encinitas is Zia Women’s Shoes & Accessories, an inviting boutique that in addition to a wide array of shoes also carries stylish handbags, jewelry, and other must-have accessories. Proprietors Laurent and Francine Hebbelinck hand-select their fashion-forward offerings from around the world — Italy, Spain, Brazil, India — and also feature known U.S brands, hidden gems they’ve discovered, and even a handful of vegan designs. With something for every style and pocketbook, featured shoe lines include Vince Camuto, Nine West, Donald J. Pliner, Old Gringo, Pantofola d’Oro, Melissa Campana, French Sole, Ugg Australia, and Leatherock, to name a few.
On the accessory front, gorgeous oversized bags from Morocco, Hobo handbags, and beaded clutches handmade in Thailand complement jewelry by Hipanema (hip, stackable bracelets), Chan Luu, Catherine Michiels, and Ines de Castillo (Swarovski skin jewelry).
Be sure to attend Zia Shoes’ grand opening reception on Saturday, September 6, at 5:30pm, where you can enjoy 15 percent off the boutique’s entire selection. (760.436.9200, www.ziashoes.com)
