Holiday Skirt

This shimmery mini has been a Holiday staple. From casual to glam, it adds shine to any ensemble. I love throwing it on with a pair of heels, it’s feminine and fun, but can easily be toned down with a scarf or tee.

Protect Your Sole


Since a young age, I have had a strong relationship with shoes. My style is such a mixture of classic separates with a trendy infusion, and depending on my mood a little boho flair. This calls for a variety of footwear to fit my day-to-day ensembles. When it comes to shoes, I definitely don’t discriminate. Whether it’s a pair of Christian Louboutins or a great bargain find at TJ Maxx, I want to make them last. Whether they’re brand new, or ten years old, I take my favorite footwear to a cobbler to get resoled. The $20-25 price tag is well worth extending the life of your shoes.
If I’m out of town, I will usually call or visit Saks for a recommendation of the cobbler or repair shop they use. I also search websites like Yelp.com to read reviews from previous customers. If you’re short on time, it’s a good idea to call the shop ahead of time to make sure they will be done in time. The cobbler will simple attach a rubber sole to the ball of foot of the shoe. It helps to prevent scuffs, scratches, and gives the shoe traction.
Some cobblers specialize in resoling Christian Louboutins. The lipstick red rubber sole matches perfectly, without taking away the shoes’ signature touch. This was the work of Progressive Shoe Repair in Beverly Hills, they did a fabulous job and were done the next day.
These Prada pumps are my favorite shoes that I own. They are so comfortable, I can run in them. So naturally, wearing them pretty often, takes a toll. Resoling these pumps was an essential, but my next move is adding a rubber tip to the heel or added protection.
When traveling, a shoe bag is essential for protecting your shoes, as well the clothes in your suitcase. Lingerie bags work just as well.

Cozy up to Fall with rich fine wines. The deep hued palette is quite the transition from Summer’s brights and neons. It’s a sleek alternative for basic neutrals. If you’re not ready to dive in to the trend just yet, add a dose of bordeaux to your ensemble with sleek accents.

Pop It

Neon sits top on the trend ladder this season. Colorblocking is chic for day, but taking the trend to night, is all about making a statement. Punch up your LBD with neon accessories. Earrings, shoes, and a sleek clutch make a chic statement when “popped” against an all black palette. A neon statement item can be a great investment piece to transform any neutral ensemble in your wardrobe.
