The Sculptural-Heeled Shorties

Monday, October 29th, 2012

With Lady Gaga and other artists exhibiting an unusual sense of (so called) fashion, designers are becoming more and more conceptual when it comes to their imaginative designs. From whimsical creations to something more wearable, we have the perfect sculptural-heeled booties to wear anywhere in the city, courtesy of Boutique 9, Dolce Vita, and Jeffrey Campbell.

All in the details, the chic Emlyn high heel booties from Boutique 9 are perfect for a glam night on the town or an upscale lunch date with friends. With its platform and more than 5” of high heel jewelry, these beautifully unexpected booties will certainly get you all of the attention wanted.

Many have spoken out about women’s love for high heels, but these avant-garde sculptural shoes take stilettos to another level. Unleash your ladylike look with the Nisha high heel ankle bootie by Dolce Vita (also offered in black). Made of calf hair, this is your go-to glam bootie of the season.

Finally, the very well known Jeffrey Campbell brand that refuses to conform to any standards, always brings rare species into the footwear world. We love how the Eva-2 high heel pump looks stylish with its plush, suede layer and slanted heel. Pair with your fave skinnies for a sexy, edgy look.

Tired of the same old shoes everywhere you turn?  Go for something different. Happy shopping!

Drab to Fab: Upgrade Your Winter Wardrobe

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

winter

Leave your winter woes behind because it’s time to go from drab to fab and upgrade your winter wardrobe. Long gone are the days of boring blacks — welcome fur and prints into your wardrobe.

Forget the plain rain boots and opt for a bold print such as these Kamik floral Heather boots. That also means it’s time to say good bye to your black “cankle” boots and slip on a cozy fur-lined pair of Sorels, which are ever-so-popular amongst the celebs this year. Feel like staying in for a cozy night of reading? Do it in style with UGG Australia slip-ons. Not the quiet night in type? Put on your high heel fur-trimmed BC boots and you’re ready to go!

Isn’t it time you took your closet from drab to fab?!

Jeffrey Campbell Resort ’12: A Love Affair With LA

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011


Jeffrey Campbelljeffrey campbell

The sun is blazing, the surf is raging, and ringing in your ear is the clanking sound of Jeffrey Campbell’s walking down the boardwalk. Venice Beach is the epicenter of the surf and skate culture, doused with hippies and hobos.With the sent of incence wafting through the air, the Jeffrey Campbell team shoots an homage to the City of Angeles — a city that is close to my heart.

While the Jeffrey Campbell Resort 2012 collection has already been released, we thought teasing you East Coasters with images of the California sun was a good idea.For those of you bundled up, scarf wrapped tightly around your neck, think of the West Coast babes having a love affair with Los Angeles.

Collaboration Alert: Tsubo for Timo Weiland Spring 2012

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

tsubo

If you weren’t at New York Fashion Week, then you might just be out of the footwear loop so let us recap what you NEED to know. Tsubo partnered up with emerging designer Timo Weiland to create a 7-piece capsule collection for their women’s Spring 2012 footwear line.

According to Tsubo Brand Manager, Jason Mora, “Timo Weiland has been on our radar for a long time. We were looking for an emerging designer with a similar aesthetic, who could incorporate his unique signature into our line, while still remaining true to Tsubo’s heritage. We’re very excited to debut our first collaborative collection with the Timo Weiland design house.”

Inspired by the romance between an Italian military commander and the daughter of an Italian seamstress during the 1930s, the collection features chunky demi-wedges and flatforms. Military theme — CHECK. Straps that look like club wristbands — CHECK. Wait, how are those ideas cohesive?!

We’ll look past the random wristband snap and continue to covet this collection. If Santa is listening, please add this to your IOU list because these babies won’t be released until January.

Let us start by wishing you a very happy Cyber Monday (Don’t forget to use coupon code ‘CM20′  for 25% off – excludes UGGs,Pajar,Sorel)!

Now, onto the blogging. In the fashion blogging industry, one shoe stands apart… the Jeffrey Campbell Lita — a fashion cult classic. Since the Lita’s rise to footwear stardom many brands have joined in on the platform high heel boot trend. One of these lookalike brands is Chelsea Crew who calls their “original creation” the Timber High Heel Bootie, boasting a hidden platform and lace up detailing. Similar to the Lita in design, the Timber has a 4 1/2″ heel and 1 1/2″ platform while the Lita has a 5″ wooden heel and 2 1/4″ hidden platform. Another difference is the price, which Timber gets our vote for; $79.99 as opposed to the Lita’s steep $145 price tag.

Which fits your style and budget best?

Jeffrey Campbell knows what it takes to sell the hottest women’s footwear and now the brand is reinventing itself with a men’s collection: The Damned. The Jeffrey Campbell team took to the streets of New York to capture the true essence and attitude of men’s footwear.

Calling all men’s fashion bloggers, Jeffrey Campbell has the shoes and boots you’ve been dreaming of (you no longer have to borrow your girlfriend’s). From high heeled boots to wedges and flatforms, the Jeffrey Campbell “Damned” collection is not for the faint of heart.  You may think you’re oogling a women’s line, but trust us we were as shocked as you when we realized the traditionally women’s styles were for men.

First came the man-bag then the man-liner, now comes Jeffrey Campbell.

DNA Footwear

Same brand, same style, two different colors: Dolce Vita Jemma High Heel Bootie. Which one will you choose?

Either black or leopard, both of which pair well with distressed grey trousers, a green chunky kint, tan satchel, good luck gold earrings, and a statement necklace (or collar). Both pairs of Jemme High Heel Booties are versatile in their ability to mix and match with ANY (ok, MOST) of your fall wardrobe. The platform ankle booties are feminine yet edgy with their extra “chunky” heel and suede outer, making them a go-to for fashion bloggers, stylists, socialites, and even the occasional celebrity.

Born in 2001, Dolce Vita shoes have been setting trends all over America and the brand continues to awe consumers with their on-point trendy styles. Dolce Vita  is a favorite brand of Beyoncé and Rhianna, and Dolce Vita designs have been featured in magazines such as Lucky, Harper’s Bazaar, People StyleWatch, InStyle, Life and Style, InTouch, and The New York Post’s Page Six. 

You too can dress like Beyoncé and Rhianna with the Dolce Vita Jemmas in Black or Leopard.

Sparkle and Shine with Perez Hilton & ShoeDazzle

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Best know for celebrity bashing, gossip columnist Perez Hilton is one of many celebrities that was recently tapped by ShoeDazzle to design charity shoes.  Among Hilton’s “Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity”  peers are Kim Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari, and Jenny McCarthy — just to name a few.

The fashion-forward media mogul designed not one but TWO shoes for ShoeDazzle (always trying to top the celebrities). Hilton chose to donate 100% of the profits from both shoes to GLSEN: Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, which addresses LGBT issues in K-12 schools.

According to Look to the Stars, “the first shoe Hilton designed, named “Sparkle,” is a black faux suede pump with silver stud detailing on the heel, platform and dual ankle straps. The second is a casual unisex silver metallic sneaker with stud embellishments and zipper detailing, named “Shine.”  The pump and sneaker will be available on November 11th, exclusively in ShoeDazzle showrooms.”

In discussing the charity collaboration, Perez remarked,  ”I designed one amazing shoe that Carrie Bradshaw would drool over. But I also wanted to make a unisex and sophisticated sneaker that I could wear too! ”

As if Hilton was not charitable enough (never thought I’d be saying that), ShoeDazzle is presenting a further fundraising opportunity to first time clients, Perez Hilton fans and GLSEN supporters: $5 from any first time purchase on ShoeDazzle.com using the code PEREZ at checkout, beginning October 24 – November 15, will be donated to GLSEN as well.

What are you waiting for? Go shop for charity!
