It’s time to put your party pants on, people! How do you even begin to choose your favorites? I hear you. The variety of leggings out there right now is overwhelming. I have to admit, I’ve fallen into the trap. Lately, I find myself trying on every pair I can find. They are comfy, cozy, great for traveling, and you can easily fold yourself into a pretzel on the couch, even after an indulgent meal.

We were recently invited to the fabulous Grand Opening Party for Clarks Shoes. The event was held at the brand’s latest and greatest store, located in Soho, NYC. After meeting Clarks’ incredible team at a Vogue styling event, we were introduced to their latest Fall shoe collection. We loved the entire collection, and knew that we wanted to explore the new store in Soho, and celebrate the store opening with the Clarks’ team.
The brand has remained true to their motto, which is, “British Born Style.” The spacious, new Soho store is absolutely gorgeous. With a British theme in mind, the store is beautifully decorated, and perfectly showcases their new collection. I love the fashion forward look of their Fall collection. The shoes are well designed, with an incredible choice of fall colors. The design details, such as quilting or special hardware adds interest to the collection as well. I found several pairs of ankle boots I loved, as well as a few must-have tall boots.
I recently had the pleasure of attending a styling event at the Vogue offices in celebration of Clarks’ shoes new collection. I always love Vogue’s events and truly enjoy working with their team. They showcase exciting brands, and I learn so much about each and every brand presented to us.
Clarks’ has refreshed the look of their brand and the collection is impressive. The motto is “British Born Style,” therefore they stayed true to their British roots. I loved the fashion forward collection which was presented to us. There were so many great styles, from tall boots, ankle boots, oxfords, and loafers. I especially loved the colors included in the collection. From burgundy, to emerald green, cognac, chocolate, and rustic brown, there were so many incredible options to choose from. I found it challenging to choose a favorite.
What do you look for when you go shopping? Is it color, or fit? Maybe you are drawn to your favorite brand. As a designer, and stylist I’m often asked this question. People always ask if I have a specific brand that I love. My answer is always the same. I fall in love with a style, not because of the label, but because of the design details.
Design details, are the intricate trims, buttons, hardware, fabric, or gathers on a piece of clothing that make it unique. These special little details add interest to the style, and often give a fashion forward look. Today, I chose several of my favorite pieces, to show you you examples of the details I’ve mentioned.

Fall has arrived, and I can feel the chill in the air. You know what that means? It’s boot season! While I usually search endlessly for my favorite pair of boots each Fall, this year the search was simple and successful. I found my favorite pair of UGG boots.
UGG’s Fall boot collection is incredible. Aside from their classic styles, they designed a beautiful collection of fashion forward boots, which are must haves for the Fall season. I found so many styles I loved, and I initially found it challenging to pick my favorite.

On of my favorite events during New York Fashion Week, was Vogue’s Runway Retreat event. It was a fabulous networking lounge, which was held at Bar Boulud, right across from the fashion tents at Lincoln Center. At the event, I mingled with fashionistas, bloggers, and the team members of the fashion brands which partnered with Vogue for the event. I sipped on champagne and nibbled on delicious bites, as I learned more about each one of the brands that featured their products at the event.
