Hello Lover

Sarah Jessica Parker is in the midst of designing and launching her own shoe line called SJP. The former “Sex and the City” star played the character Carrie Bradshaw who was a writer and a fashion whore. She coined the phrase “Hello Lover” every time she saw an amazing fashion piece, mostly referring to stilettos and pumps.  Her character persona once bragged in an episode that she owned over $40,00 in shoes alone.

It’s no surprise that Sarah Jessica Parker would eventually pair her love for fashion and her creative mind to form a shoe collection. She has teamed up with Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus to create shoes, small handbags and a few trench coats. The collection, “SJP” will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom in early 2014.

Talk about a fantasy life becoming a reality. I guess “happily-ever- afters” really do exist.

Hey Sunshine!

Designer sunglasses are always so sleek and sexy, but this season it’s all about the embellishments. Back in the late ’80s my BF Simone made me these button sunglasses when I got promoted to a Nordstrom Accessory buyer. They’re so special to me, I’ve kept them stored in my “secret” treasure box for years.

After seeing all of the designer shades that are on the market this season, I remembered Simone’s masterpiece, so I pulled them out to compare. The first picture is Prada, the second picture is Dolce & Gabbana, and the third picture is my original couture design by Simone. I think I like mine the best. Way to go Simone for being 20 years ahead of the trend. (That’s probably why she’s still an amazing fashion industry guru!)  And now I don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for a pair of textured shades, I’ll be sporting my very own. (As soon as I find the missing button.)

Eye Love You!

Orange Crush

photo

Saturday I spent 2  hours purging my 7 year old son’s closet and drawers. He is growing so fast and everything from undies to jammies to shoes to clothes were too small. Yesterday I decided to take him shopping with me so he could try on. I never in a million years would have picked these bright, neon- orange Vans for him, but when he saw them  at Nordstrom, the begging and pleading began.  I noticed my  12 year old niece who was with us became  sad. I thought maybe she was bored or perhaps her iPhone died and she couldn’t instagram, but no! She was sad because she too wanted the orange shoes and they didn’t have her size.

My son insisted on wearing them out of the store and Nordstrom was working on transferring in a pair from another store for my niece. Leave it to the kids to trend spot. Apparently, a slice of orange is a “must have” for young wardrobes.

I hope everyone has a great week. Remember to stay stylish!

Fox Trot!

The fox icon is gaining popularity in the fashion world. Although I still love Mr. Owl and anything with a bird on it, it’s time for the avian creatures to perch for a while. You know the fox is hot when Burberry uses fox head hardware on their handbags and when Tory Burch picks an all-over fox print for her latest totes. Look for jewelry, T-shirts, handbags and details with foxes for this seasons new icon. I’m going to Nordstrom now to purchase the Tory bag, it’s just too cool!

I hope everyone has a great week! And get FOXY!!!
