Q: I’m getting ready for summer Fridays and long weekends. What are the five things I need? — Daniela, Maryland

A: My boys and I are counting down the days — we spend our weekends in Southampton. We go to clam bakes, we fish, and my boys surf (I watch), so layers are essential — a graphic button-down shirt I throw over shorts, a classic cotton cardigan, white jeans and flat sandals. And, of course, sunglasses and a swimsuit! — Tory

    dear tory,
    i really love your line of clothing and accessories, especially your shoes. i just bought a new pair of reva flats for the summer. upon wearing them i developed an abnormally sized blister. it got so bad that i had my doctor check it out. i am now on perscribed medication.
    this was a big letdown. i am sorry to publicize this but i could not find another way to contact you.
    sincerely,
    emily hirsch, lakewood new jersey.

    Dear Tory,

    Some people may read your answer and think “WOW – long summer weekends in Southampton.  I want Tory’s life.”  While that does sound pretty amazing, I am actually perfectly, deliriously happy with my own life.  This is in part due to the fact that I can feel confident and beautiful every day wearing your gorgeous clothes.  Thank you for helping to instill this sense of confidence and awareness of inner beauty in your loyal fans!

    Dear Tory,

    Are you bringing the Selma flat boot back for Fall 2012?  I missed out last fall and I’m hoping I can get a pair this year!!!

    We will have the new take on the Selma, the Amanda boot, coming for Fall 2012.

    Hi Tory,
    I would love to see a slightly thicker rubber soled version of the Reva, to better protect my pretty feet on city sidewalks and cobblestones…  And my favorites of all time were made out of chocolate brown pony hair, they lasted forever and always looked great.

    Tory,  I’m new to your collection.  I’ve been working in NY for the last 6 months, but reside near Pittsburgh PA.  I love your line and have spent many a Saturday visiting your boutiques and the department stores.  Recently I saw a raspberry bag in Saks.  Are there plans for a foldover crossbody bag in the same beautiful color? 

  • Denisewalker

    Do you design for petites?
    I loved the dress Sami Brady wore on DOOL.
    I do have two of your purses but would love a dress.
    I am only 5’1 1/2.

    Tory – I love everything in your collections!  I am plus size woman – and was wondering if you ever plan to have a plus size clothes line!  I would really love if you did… :–)

    Dear Tory,

    Many of us are wearing your Signature Reva Flats for many years.  Are you considering making Reva Flats with straps someday? Tory Burch’s “Mary Janes” would be a huge hit. Narrow and traveling feet would absolutely love them.

    Think about little girls with Mary Janes. Isn’t it cute?

    Regards,
    Leigh

    I love your shoes, but I wear a size 11 and sometimes size 12.  Your ll run small.  Do you plans on making sandals in size 12?

    Hi, there were some some Leather and raffia wedge loafers £300 featured in this weekend’s Financial Times (UK) which I would love to buy.  Can you tell me when and where they will be available?
