LOFT: Spring Preview

Winter is in the air, but inside the LOFT showroom it was definitely spring! I Heart Heels had the opportunity to go check out what they are offering for Spring, and it's going to be fabulous!
I look forward to LOFT's previews every season, and this one was no different. LOFT is known for color and making hot trends super affordable. The quality and thought behind their clothes and designs is just amazing. Prints, lace, stripes and color blocking are HOT once again for spring. I love how they're mixing prints with monochromatic pieces. Looks have the illusion that they're all one color, but add prints and patterns in to spice up the look. Floral blazers and striped peplum make another appearance this season, and we couldn't be happier. Bright cap toe flats, neon-printed sandals and necklaces are also on trend for spring. And for all of us "heel obsessed" girlies, the tan peep-toe bootie is a must!








This LOFT collection has a laid back feel with a subtle sophistication. You can seriously wear these pieces dressed down or up, which makes them wallet friendly and a brand people are gravitating towards because of their ability to be work in many seasons...for many occasions. I know it's a little too early for be thinking about spring and what should be on your "to buy" list, but I would definitely keep LOFT at the top of the list. Check out the pictures here and you'll see what I mean. How can you pass up ANY of these fabulous pieces?

UGG Store opening in the Meatpacking District

Living in NYC has its ups and downs, pluses and minuses - but at the end of the day, it's one of the most fantastic cities in the world! Case in point - having basically every fashion label at your fingertips. And not just at one single department store or neighborhood, but all over the city.

 Thursday night, I had the amazing privilege to go check out UGG Australia's new Meatpacking store (Thanks IHH!). Nestled in what's becoming one of the prime places to shop downtown, UGG is a definite bright spot. Offering men's, women's, and even kid's styles, this store has everything from the classic UGG to the everyday boot or bootie. 

With the holidays just around the corner, UGG has you covered for everyone on your list. Velvet slippers for dad or your significant other, plush bathrobe for mom or grandma, leopard booties for the little princess, or black roped detail booties for your sister or leading lady. And these were just a few of the options they have in stores right now! 


After knocking out the last few people on my Christmas list, I came home with a little treat for myself...these fabulous tan "ambrogia" booties! I mean, how can you pass up something that will go with just about everything in your closet?

Elie Tahari SS13 Presentation

Stepping into the Elie Tahari was like going back to Palm Springs during the 1950's. Vibrant, rich hues mixed with modern sophistication is what Tahari is all about come Spring. Color blocking with colors like Tangy Melon, Sea Palm and Flamingo Pink Coral will allow you to have a little fun with your outfits choices this spring. And let's not forget the gorgeous fabrics and textiles used for this collection. Hello cashmere, suede, sequins and leather! Tonal looks were also prevalent, and I'm starting to really like this trend. Matchy Matchy is back in style! In previous collections, Tahari has been known for using unique detailing to sass up his designs, and this collection is no different. Exposed zippers, contrast lining, laser cut pockets, and neon trim are back for another season and hotter than ever. My favorite look of the presentation was the tangy melon pants and tank. Hello summer afternoon cocktail party!!

I hope you have lots of parties on your dance card for Spring! With all the fabulous options from Elie Tahari's new collection, you will be dying to find somewhere to show off these unique and fun looks. Start planning now!

Toms Spring Preview

Starting with one style of shoe to what is now a fabulous collection, Toms shoes has a style for every type of fashionista. I had the fabulous opportunity ( Thanks IHH! ) to attend their Holiday Preview and check out the new styles and color ways for the Holidays. And let me tell you, there are some designs you will be DYING to get your hands on! Polka dots, multi-glitter, crochet, and twill are just a few of the fabulous creations coming this holiday season. The super comfy and super chic Desert Wedge will come in a gorgeous grey wool for fall, and I definitely have my sights set on getting those babies! And for the men in our lives, they have a few new boot styles, some classic styles with some twists (Hello flanned and fleece lined), as well as two styles designed for Movember, a great platform that brings awareness to mens health. Ladies, these same two styles are available to us as well. Its a way for us to support Movember without having to grow a mustache, which is WAY more fashionable! 

A few new eyewear options are also available this fall, and I will be honest, it's going to be tough to choose just one pair!!! Check out the pictures below and see for yourself! 

After viewing the collections, we were asked to create our own eye chart. What a fun idea, right? There were several stencil options to choose from, and I chose "I Love What I See." What a great reminder to be happy with who you are and not try to be someone else.  

With the addition on some great styles, Toms has proven it is here to stay. So hurry on over to Toms website and pick up some fun new styles, and don't forget, these are perfect holiday gifts for your loved ones! 

A few options for making our own eye chart. Such a cute idea

Polka Dot's for toddlers and girls. How cute are these? 

Women Polka Dot option too! 

Holiday Glitter Toms. Love these!! 

New fall Boot for women. Looks Cozy, no? 

The wedge gets a grey option. Think I might need these!

Carmen Marc Valvo SS13 Runway Show

If I could wear a gorgeous gown to work everyday, Carmen Marc Valvo would be at the top of my shopping list. I was simply in awe of his SS 2013 collection. Gorgeous fabrics, colors, textures, and designs, that i couldn't take my eyes off of one look to see the next! This collection had sort of an asian samurai theme. with lace being the main fabric used on just about every look. Folded silk draped the shoulders and was tied at the waist with a black belt. Patterns inspired by embroideries and kimonos were mixed with vintage fabrications. The whole collection was stunning and his attention to detail and background is second to none! My favorites of the evening? This gorgeous cobalt (still trending for spring) silk origami folded one shoulder cocktail dress. I have gone back to this picture numerous times, its just so elegant and stunning. 

Swimsuits were also added to this collection, and the one piece is, yet again, making a comeback. With lower lines on the legs and deeper v's on the chest, these suits are made to be seen. This is the ultimate in swim luxury, and make me want to hop on a yacht in St. Tropez (excuse me while I day dream). 

And as if this runway collection wasn't enough to sink your teeth into, Carmen will launch the 'Carmen Marc Valvo Capsule' collection on Novemeber 2nd with HSN! WHAT?? This collection, which will be exclusive to HSN, will feature evening knits, cardigans, shrugs, pants, bandage skirts, and a cocktail dress.  I mean, how amazing will it be to have more accessible options from this fabulous designer? I know I will be heading to come November 2nd. 

AND to top it off, Carmen Marc Valvo will be launching his own shoe line! EEK!

Ok, all you heel lovers out there, this is THE post for you! Thanks to I Heart Heels, I had the fabulous chance to go check out Stuart Weitzman's showroom (Literally a dream come true, there were shoes everywhere) and got a sneak peek at what he will have in stores come Spring. And you WILL NOT be sorry. I can't wait to get my hands on some of these fabulous creations.

This Chain Detail Wedge is a MUST

Gold patent cap toe is a fun update for Spring

Leopard and Mint Green are two of my favorite things!

Color-blocked Wedges are perfect for spring, these are too fun! 

These make me want to throw on short and a tee and head to the beach! 

Color Blocking, metal accents, vinyl inserts, cap toes, gladiator styles, and patent galore are just a handful of the designs to expect from Stuart for Spring. Mixing colors has never looked sexier and more in style! Wedges, flats, sky high heels, you name it Stuart has it. I mean, this could be your one stop shop for spring shoes! The pictures here are some of my favorites for Spring 2013. This is just a handful of the over 50 pairs of shoes he has for the Spring launch. And ladies, from the looks of things at SW, its going to be one H-O-T season!

Alica + Olicia Spring 2013 Presentation

Stepping into Center 48 felt like stepping into a time machine back to the 1950's. Models standing around the room looked like the picturesque woman of that era. From corsets and bustiers, to cropped pants and full skirts, sophisticated elegance is back with Alice and Olivia's Spring/Summer 2013 collection. As if her clothes and shoes weren't fabulous enough, Stacey Bendet added handbags for spring! I mean is she a triple threat, or what?! I literally walked around the room at least three times admiring this gorgeous and fun collection. Leopard, polka dots, coral and vibrant prints are here to stay for at least another season. Stacey effortlessly blended primary colors with soft pastels for this collection, and what an unexpected treat! I just goes to show that in fashion, the rules are off limits. Alice and Olivia, season after season, continues to be a front runner for fun and flirty. If you want to make a statement or silence a room, put on an A+O party dress, I guarantee you will be the talk of the evening. Take, for example, the gorgeous lemon beaded dress. I mean, how amazing is this dress? I have already tried to find somewhere to where this for spring. It HAS to come live in my closet!


Designer Stacey Bendet
Besides the gorgeous models, there were a few other treats for the night. Mia Moratti and Caitlin Moe were the entertainment for the evening and were just as amazing as I have seen them before. These two truly know how to get a party started and keep you wanting to dance the rest of the night. Magnum Ice Cream was on had to hand out some of their delicious treats. AND the super treat of them all? I got to meet the talented stylist and super mom, June Ambrose! EEK! She is the sweetest woman and to top if off, she's such a role model. Balancing being a mom with her super busy career is definitely something to be admired! Definitely a huge moment for me!

Me with June and her daughter!

Thanks to I Heart Heels for the invite!

Happy Friday, Lovelies! Have a fabulous weekend! xo
