Gilt x Sam Edelman Shoes Spring 2017 Shoe Launch

Hey Mamas,

Who’s ready for comfy-style shoes, and giving those toes their day in the sun?

For Spring/Summer 2017, Gilt teamed up with Sam Edelman to develop a line of exclusive footwear styles that is launching tomorrow, Thursday, April 6.

Get ready to click and buy from this fun and festive assortment of flats, block heels, low espadrilles and coordinating bags.

I previewed the Gilt x Sam Edelman exclusive collection, this morning (whilst enjoying a mani – #LoveMyJob ) and can’t wait to wear the bright pops of pink, red and denim blue. If you’re in for embroidery, pom-poms and a dash of St. Tropez flair, this collection is for you.

Best of all, the styles, which range in price from $70-$120, are super comfortable. From walks in the park with the kids, to a full day of work in the city, followed by night cap with the hubby, I think you’ll find lots of great options for your busy, stylish life.

The Boots Make The Look, Tabitha Simmons

In tribute to London Fashion Week and the cold winds that swept into New York, this morning, I pulled out my new Tabitha Simmons boots – an acquisition from my recent romantic getaway to London. The boots are the perfect shade of grey that matches black, white, metallic, blue, red, etc. I love the lace-up details, with the convenience of a zip, side opening. The heels are thick enough to provide excellent balance and comfort, without being too bulky. Lastly, like any great boots, they have leather inner and leather upper lining. If I’m spending over $500, heck over $200, on boots, the inside better be leather, as well.
P2 Style – It’s all about the boots and mix material 
The whole outfit was planned around the boots. What can I say, accessories are my passion. How do you plan your outfits? Do start with one key accessory or clothing item? Are you a night before layout the look gal or a morning dressing in a rush gal?

Alexandre Birman Python & Suede Pump, Fall 2013

Labor Day has come and gone, the crisp air has swept in, schools start on Monday (at least in NY), and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York kicks off tomorrow. This can only mean one thing: Fall fashion is officially here, and with it comes layers, cozy sweaters, hints of suede, fur vests, felt hats, pantyhose and everything else I love about this glorious season.Oh, did I mention new shoes? Not that this is an excuse to skip your pedicure – Always Be Your Best You! – but, closed-toe, pointy shoes are hotter than ever. This trend has been brewing for about five seasons and this autumn, it’s exploding in every texture and heel height.
 
I’ve chosen this option from Alexandre Birman as my must-buy shoe for the seasoniconbecause it’s a classic you’ll turn to for years to come, and yet it embodies all the key flavors of the season – lady-like heel height, pointy toe, contrast toe, animal print/skin and mixed materials. Also, Mr. Birman makes the most comfortable shoes imaginable. I can play tennis in them!
