Stepping into Spring with Viscata Espadrilles


If feels like spring has been wavering but earlier this month for just one day in between all the rain the sun came out and it made me so excited to put on my new Viscata espadrilles and a floral romper and visit the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. You could say I really dressed the part from my hair to toe to celebrate all of the beautiful colors around me.


Outfit details:

Willow & Clay Seaflower Romper and army jacket (similar)

Viscata Espadrille Tamariu Wedges in Beige

Kate Spade Orchard Street Penelope Crossbody Bag in Alice Blue


Surrounded in lilacs and cherry blossoms, there was really no better place to spend a beautiful day in NYC then at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. It exudes spring everywhere you look and there’s something so special about being surrounded in florals and the joy it brings to everyone around you walking the gardens.

Espadrilles always remind me of my sister who has lived in Europe for most of her adult life and owns about a million pairs. Viscata espadrilles are all hand made in Spain with artisan crafting based on traditional designs from centuries ago — but with a modern flair of breathable materials, sustainable packaging, and an array of fun colors and styles in both flats and wedges. These are my first pair of open toe espadrille wedges which I’ve been on the hunt for some time. There’s something a little more flirty about them then standard closed toe. Plus a wedge always makes your legs look leaner.

Stepping out in Teysha Handmade Shoes


Before leaving for Europe a friend of mine introduced me to Teysha, an amazing shoe brand that supports artisan communities throughout the Americas.teysha5

Their handmade shoes, each one of a kind help create flourishing communities and artistic expression through sustainable fashion by combining heritage quality goods with traditionally informed artistry. They have a really cool assortment of flats and boots for both men and women. I wore them non-stop during my travels.

His & Hers: Pikolinos Shoes

Pikolinos ShoesJames and I are in the process of redoing our apartment which as you can imagine with how much we travel has been a long time coming! While we’ve tackled most of our storage issues we’re still deciding how we want to organize our shoes. I don’t think we realized how many we had until we cleared out all of the hiding places (under the bed, in the hallway, shoe racks, storage closet…) and as you can imagine have quite the collection! What I want is a way to properly store them so I see everything. We have so many amazing pairs that it also inspired me to start doing a regular feature on cool brands starting with Pikolinos!

What an epic weekend! It’s not everyday you get to go to Coachella with a fashion icon who just so happens to be someone you’ve admired since you were a teenager. As the costume designer behind the looks for the cast of Sex and the City,  Devil Wears Prada, The Other Woman and now the new show, Younger, starring Hilary Duff, who better to check out the fashion scene with than with Patricia Field? And as DSW’s official festival corespondent I was taking notes all weekend and here’s the style recap.

Dr. Martens x Adventure Time Limited Edition Collection

What could be more fun (or adorable) then Dr. Martens partnering with Cartoon Network’s beloved animation series Adventure Time? Nothing, that’s what! The cartoon that attracts adults and children alike inspired a range of three styles available in sizes for both. The three boots in the collection are the Finn Boot (White Smooth Leather + Synthetic PU), Jake Boot (Yellow Smooth Leather + Synthetic PU) and Multi Boot (Character T Canvas). Sizes available are Infant (5.5-9), Junior (10-2.5) and Adult (3-13). I got a sneak peek of the collection today before their official launch tomorrow and they are so cute (and the kids at the event were eating them up too!).

Let Get Lost this Spring with UGG Australia

Whatever preconceived notion you have of sheepskin and boots when you think  of UGG just ignore (or at least re-imagine) when it comes to spring! Hosted at the Egyptian restaurant, Casa La Femme, UGG threw a Lets Get Lost party where they unveiled their Spring 2013 collection. Vibrant patterns, animal prints and woven leathers dominated the collection throughout the offering of shoes, handbags and accessories. The shoes housed a variety of feminine silhuettes ranging from flats, to wedges to espadrilles. While there were several must-have women’s items (I need to order those cheetah or zebra flats stat), I was incredibly impressed by the mens collection — super solid. Chic styles mixed with UGG’s infamous comfort is a recipe sought up in foot heaven.
