Gilt goes Editorial!

9 Sep

One of our favorite shopping stops by noon, Gilt Groupe, is putting a new spin on things. They’re taking top trends for fall and making them shoppable with their new theme-based sales, starting September 10th and continuing every Friday throughout the season (all sales commence at 12pm ET).

Tomorrow, they’re launching with one of the hottest trends right now – military inspiration. Says Gilt of the trend:

Get dressed in a uniform of Army greens, dusty khakis and stylish boots (whether you go rugged in flats or sexy in stilettos is up to you). This look is great because it’s so versatile: the color palette is neutral so it works with all skin tones, and the slouchy silhouettes flatter every body type. Plus, who couldn’t use more compartments and pockets for an extra lip gloss or iPhone? Truly utilitarian, this style is on its way to becoming a classic. Need more? Classic nylon trench coats pair with woven dresses and low-heeled sleek boots. Bold hardware dresses up plush leather handbags. And the jewelry selection refuses to go unnoticed, ranging from multi-strap leather bracelets to a gunmetal barbed wire necklace.

They’ll be featuring brands like:

Daryl K
Morgane le Fay
Vera Wang Lavender Label
Alexander Wang
Camilla Skovgaard
Modern Vintage

Tomorrow, Gilt is also hosting a Stand Up To Cancer shoe sale, where 5% of the net proceeds will go to Stand Up To Cancer to help raise awareness and fund cancer research. Shop coveted brands including Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Guillaume Hinfray, Casadei and much more by registering for Gilt at www.gilt.com/standup.

Head over to Gilt tomorrow and happy shopping! Fashion’s Night Out is tomorrow 🙂


Fall Fashion: The “Everyday” Boot

22 Aug

Sometimes shopping for the “Everyday” boot can be a game of hit or miss. Comfort, price, style, and/or brand can make the deciding factor very hard to reach. With Fall inching it’s way around the corner it may be time to start adding key pieces to next season’s wardrobe.

The options below are for the woman who wants everyday comfort without sacrificing her sense of style.

Visit your nearest Steve Madden store or visit the website to see other views of the HAVILAND. It comes up over the knee and has an elastic back build for “comfiness”.  At $199.95, your wallet will feel a sense of comfort as well.

If you are looking for a similar boot, at a lesser cost, we found the SPRINGSTON at only $110 at Aldo shoes online store. These knee high boots will make a statement over skinny jeans or with a cute dress this Fall.

The SITCOM at Nine West @ $129 is another great affordable alternative. If simplicity and cost efficiency is your thing, visit Nine West to view their soft suede, flat boot.

The last everyday boot option we have is from our friend, Kenneth Cole. If you want to treat yourself, do it with their GENTLE SOULS. This beautiful, calf/knee high soft leather boot is $350 and worth every dime. See it here or visit a Kenneth Cole near you.

Take your time choosing a boot (or two) – they will be an addition to your closet for the next couple of months. Ladies, whichever the final decision is be sure to make it one that feels like you’re walking on clouds with every step you take.
