While preparing for a hometown visit to Ohio, I went a little sweater crazy, in an attempt to find perfect sweaters for my trip. I’m generally not a sweater girl, so finding styles that I like is usually a challenge.
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.
September has begun, and New York Fashion Week is upon us. While the weather is still warm, I am transitioning my wardrobe from a bright, summer color palette, to beautiful, jeweled toned looks for fall. Black is an easy option when the weather gets cooler, however I live for color.
Last week, on a beautiful summer evening, we were invited to Brahmin’s Wearable Art Party held at Hotel Giraffe’s rooftop in Midtown, Manhattan. Fashion bloggers Grace Atwood, and Jess Ann Kirby hosted the event. Also in attendance were Jessie Artigue, Cara Kovacs, Jessica Sturdy, and Lisa Rosado.
The idea behind the event was to showcase Brahmin’s gorgeous Fall 2014 Collection as wearable art. The handbags were absolutely stunning. They were displayed, as a museum exhibition. The deep, rich colors and textures of the Fall bags were breathtaking. I couldn’t decide which bag I loved best. Colorful, art inspired cocktails were served throughout the evening, as well as delicious hors d’oeuvres.
