Shoe Heaven in the Empire Hotel

Forget diamonds—shoes are a girl’s best friend. Isa Tapia held a presentation of her phenomenal shoe line this afternoon in an intimate setting in the quarters of the Empire Hotel.  My fabulous fashion stylist friend, Liz Teich, and I were in shoe heaven. Tapia has created a line for every occasion—whether you need a classic pump, to a statement piece, it’s all there. The shoes are crafted beautifully to such full extent of detail. Absolute perfection. Take a peek at her line and let me know what you think! Shoes will be in stores starting in August.

Stylistas Continue to Leave their Mark

It’s Saturday and the fashionistas are all out flaunting it in front of the Lincoln Center tents. Effortless, thrown together styles? Probably not, but they each bring a piece of their own individuality to the table that makes New York City such a fantastic fashion hub. They look fabulous, we know it, so why not share their looks? Here are some that I bumped into today.

Femininity and Glamour at RAOUL F/W 2014

RAOUL presented a beautiful, feminine ready-to-wear line at the off-site location Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse this morning to kick-start my fashion week events. The models stood on the stage that curved around the room, some chatting to each other while the press mingled and took their photos. My favorite looks were the vintage-esque ensembles—the prints mixed with powder blue tones and marigold. Each look was feminine, but had a modern twist.  LOVE IT.  In addition, RAOUL launched a new accessories and shoe (!!!) line. What do you think of the looks? Which is your favorite?

Gabriela Perezutti brought on her Uruguay roots at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week when presenting her Candela line at The Box. Long, straight silhouettes graced the models for the Fall/Winter 2013 season. This time around, Candela decided to go the nautical route. Strategically positioned throughout the quaint room—journalists and spectators were able to meander paying close attention to each intricate detail involved in the looks.

As a collection—this has to be one of my favorites so far. The feminine touches and beachside elegance made it a desirable line for all women. The soft silhouettes and quirky details made each look appropriate for summer sunset walks as well as cocktail parties. Both casual chic and glamour—Candela has set the perfect setting for Spring/Summer 2014.

The Key to My Sole– Louboutin at Saks

louboutin

The red sole has been an iconic symbol on the tip-toes of celebrities and fashionistas alike—parading the streets with such sex appeal for glamorous women. Christian Louboutin knows how to make shoes that make a woman feel sexy—and it’s no surprise that Saks is opening a Christian Louboutin ‘salon’ at their stores now.

From the streets of Paris, to my very own New York City backyard—this video is fantastic—enjoy!

Street Style: Chelsea Blues

Effortless Chic

I ran into this girl in Chelsea and loved her effortless look. The blue velvet heels. The blueberry tights. The over-sized scarf, and of course a fur to top it all off. As if this whole look isn’t cute enough, her puppy was the perfect accessory for this chilly day in Chelsea.

Love!
