Sneakerheads

January 30, 2016

Sneakerheads, sneaker addicts, sneaker. Who knew sneakers could be a good investment. Josh Luber creator of Campless has me stunned. Need you to watch the Ted Talk below to fully understand how easily Josh has broken this down.

So what exactly is a sneakerhead? By formal definition a sneakerhead is a person who collects, trades, or admires sneakers as a hobby. Along with being able to distinguish between real and fake replica sneakers.

The first example that comes to mind of a sneakerhead is the character Turtle of the HBO show Entourage. Last year in 2015 a sneaker convention: Sneaker Con was created where sneaker heads could buy and sell the most sought after footwear on the market. I love that this subculture exists and potentially profiting off there collectors item. What I have learned in my years of fashion is a wearable item is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. I guess we should be thanking ebay for helping create this platform.

designer Eddie Borgo

September 23, 2015

designer Eddie Borgo

I had the opportunity to meet and interview jewelry designer Eddie Borgo at a Neiman Marcus trunk show. Eddie’s line is in over 200 stores worldwide, and recently collaborated with Target, which you can find in stores now.

So, who is designer Eddie Borgo outside of being super cool and letting me absorb all of his time? In 2010, Borgo was awarded runner up in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, Borgo won the CFDA Swarovski Award for innovation in accessory design and was a recipient of the first ever CFDA/Vogue Tiffany & Co. Development Grant.
But really, this is the most important question Eddie can answer in terms of jewelry: what piece of jewelry should every woman own?
His answer:
*An heirloom piece that has been passed down by previous generations
*A piece that has been bought for them by someone special to them
*A piece that reflects their own, personal style

Things you don’t need to know about Eddie:
*He was born in Ohio
*He has no tattoos
*He talks to his mom at least once a week, but if his mom had her way they would talk every day
*He lives in Soho and is walking distance from his office

What’s the next big thing for this designer? Handbags—in 8 different styles that have a modem, vintage feel to them. The biggest challenge to designing a handbag is the weight of the bag. Wanting to keep the same asthenic of the brand, but with heavy hardware, makes it a bit of a challenge to keep the purse lightweight.

Fashion Backpacks

September 8, 2014

Backpacks aren’t just for your kids these days, many fashion brands are offering them up as the “it” purse this season. Being that my purse is extremely heavy; I am really digg-in fashion backpacks. The two straps would even the load on my neck and shoulders, verses carrying one heavy strap…right? I love the casualness of a backpack, below are some of my favorites under $500 bucks.

Black Summer Booties

January 25, 2014

Above are my some of my favorite black summer booties under $200.00. When worn with socks or tights, you can work these into your fall and winter wardrobe. Shoes that you can wear in multiple seasons are always a good purchase.

1/Steve Madden $149.95 (personal favorite)
2/SixtySeven $188.95
3/Jeffrey Campbell $198.00
4/Report $129.95 (I would consider this to be a heel verses a bootie but thought I conservative option was needed in my shoe pull)

why you NEED a metallic shoe

January 6, 2014

ummm….because they will go with basically anything in your closet and make your outfit look more expensive in the process. A metallic heel has become my solution for making a boring outfit… not boring. Pick your poison a flat, wedge or heel. If you don’t have a metallic shoe in your wardrobe, get one!

Below are some of my favorite basics that are in stores now, but you can find cheaper versions out there.

Lace Up Heels

August 13, 2013

I am loving lace up heels… mostly because you can throw on a pair of socks in the fall and essentially can wear them all year long. If your wearing jeans, roll them up to show the lace detail of your shoe.

2-Boutique 9 Lace Up open-toe booties $200
3-Jeffrey Campbell + Free People Lace Up Heel $178.00
4-Ecote Cutout Lace-Up Heel &79.00

I just purchased #3 in burgundy and they are on backorder. These boots also came in other colors and leather, but figured since I didn’t have any shoes in burgundy why not. I am so pumped about my purchase…. hope they are comfortable.
