Adele Takes Manhattan

adele madison square gardenAfter a lot of hemming and hawing, debating and discussion, I pulled the trigger to catch Adele’s final performance at Madison Square Garden with a girlfriend.  My ninja like internet skills even allowed me to get the tickets for much less than initially anticipated.  Surplus immediately added to the Jimmy Choo Velvet Mari Heels shoe fund.

The winged eyeliner alone is enough to consider her a hero, but that voice, those lyrics, and straight up soul, make Adele a certified superstar.  Due to the last minute acquisition and my need to save all pennies for Gianvito Rossi Suede Janis High Sandals, our seats certainly weren’t front and center, but I think anyone in attendance can attest that there was not one bad seat in the house.

Starting off with “Hello” and ending with “Rolling in the Deep,” there was not one moment to sit down and rest my feet, though my Aquazzura Amazon Suede Heels could have used an intermission.  Which led me to wonder, what was Adele wearing on her feet?  There’s no way one woman, unless otherwise known as Beyonce, could spend an evening belting out tunes in Sophia Webster Suede Chaira Platform Heels.  If I had one guess, it had to be a pair or Isabel Marant  Leo Eyelet Velvet Flats.  I guess two things will remain a mystery about Adele: her footwear and how on earth she achieve perfect winged eyeliner every. single. time.

Shoe of the Week: Over the Knee and Through the Woods

Valentino Suede Over The Knee Booties

When it comes to fall footwear, the over the knee boot is a closet staple and also a closet conundrum.  Yes, the scene of Julia Roberts singing Prince’s “Kiss” in Pretty Woman will never grow old, but those over the knee patent leather boots are a little less charming. So, what is the key to pulling off the look?  Subtlety.  A lower stacked heel, or a flat bottom boot is sexy without being startling.  While black is always a wise investment, neutral tones, grey, and even oxblood can be other outstanding options.  The Valentino Suede Over The Knee Booties encompasses all of these things with its covered heel, subtle stitching, and rich texture.  This is much more mega babe than Pretty Woman.

Shoe of the Week: Ballettonet Chelsea Boot

screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-7-24-31-pm

Ah, September equinox has come and gone.  And with it, it’s left us with cooler temperatures and good reason not to shave our legs (hint: pants).  With it, however, we’ve been left in a state of confusion when it comes to clothing ourselves.  We’re stuck debating whether something is hashtag too soon or just holding on to a feeling.  No one wants to be the girl wearing her winter coat on the first day of school, nor do we want to be the girl clinging to a croptop and a dream.

And this doesn’t just fall under the category of clothing.  One must take into account her footwear.  Sandals seem to be desperate and tall boots just appear a bit Pretty Woman as early as October 1st.

What is the only alternative?  The perfect booties.  Namely, the Chelsea Boot by Ballettonet.  A simple, yet sophisticated flat bootie designed in collaboration with Jasmin Howell (you may know her as Friend In Fashion), this shoe can easily transition from day– with a perfectly distressed pair of denim trousers, to evening– with the most conscious of bodycon dresses.  Dressed up or dressed down, high shine or matte sophistication, this boot will impress if not not only for its design details but for the fact that it’s a limited edition piece- only 100 pairs made entirely in Italy by the Baccaro family in each style.

Fall Trends: Velvet Underground

velvet-street-style-fall-16

Cuffing season is upon us.  And if you’re like me and haven’t found a suitable suitor to keep you warm on those chilly fall evenings, you’re going to need to resort to alternative sources of heat.  Yes, there’s cashmere and corduroy (which made a surprising comeback), but this fall’s front runner is another 90’s throwback: velvet.  And every “it” girl, model, or digital influencer has been seen sporting some form of the fabric- from crushed velvet body suits to the covetable Phillip Lim Kyoto boot.  Mostly seen in jewel tones, there’s a shape and silhouette for every body to incorporate into their fall wardrobes from velvet booties to slinky slip dresses.  Below are a few of my favorites.

I Shoes You

When the weather has become about as indecisive as a woman in an ill lit dressing room trying to decide between two different denim washes, you need a shoe that suits your mood.  The Siegerson Morrison Belin Bootie is a perfect anecdote to the everchanging temperatures of early fall.  This is around the time I start to feel sad for those in San Francisco who deal with bipolar weather ten months out of the year.  When it’s time to trade in the sandals, but you aren’t quite ready to dig the big boots out from underneath the bed’s storage boxes, this bootie proves to be a clever transition for your toes.

Save Your Sole + Opening Ceremony NYFW FW16 #pageantofthepeople

img_5025

Last night in New York we went backstage at New York Fashion Week to work with Opening Ceremony in their show ‘Pageant of the People’ featuring The Opening Ceremony Fall II & Winter 2016 Collection.

This is our sixth season working with the team and we love their shows. And of course their clothes. We used our Clear Sole Sticker & Black Sole Sticker for for this show to cut to the sole shape and put grip on the soles of the shoes to keep the models on their feet. And on the runway.

Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony said in our first season “Save Your Sole is perfect for our runway needs. This amazing product protects the soles and keeps them looking clean and new”. Love.

This show featured black knee high boots and mules with red heels and our black sole stickers.  Backstage the team at Opening Ceremony applied over 60 Black Sole Stickers and Clear Sole Stickers to the shoes to provide instant grip and sole protection. Perfect.

Our Sole Stickers were also used to make it easy for all of the celebrities featured in the pageant of the people to walk in their Opening Ceremony shoes including Rashida Jones, Natasha Lyonne and the incredible Whoopi Goldberg.
