Taking on winter with DSW and Sorel


It’s the holiday season and time to deck the halls and update your shoe closet for all that’s to come. Whatever the occasion DSW has every shoe and boot you’ll need this holiday season from top brands at great prices. From boots to booties to sparkle pumps — whether it’s a last minute holiday party or there’s a snowstorm on the horizon — DSW has everything you need to stay festive, on trend and most importantly warm this holiday season.


If growing up in Boston and moving to New York taught me one thing it’s that investing in a pair of winter boots is a necessity. Especially if you factor in how crazy these past two winters have been! Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone you care about this holiday season, nothing says I love you like your feet won’t freeze to death this winter.

While different styles come and go the Sorel Joan of Arctic Snow Boot has been a favorite of mine and it’s a classic that never goes out of style. They make trudging through the snow fun and are indestructible. This isn’t a boot that will fall apart on you after one season but rather a great investment you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Kara Ross Fall/Winter 2012

Kara Ross, enchanted by her travels to the Sahara, introduced a Moroccan inspired collection for Fall 2012. Using vibrant colors such as deep purple, emerald green, indigo and sand she invokes the feel of foreign lands.  The collection is true to Kara’s style, statement pieces using beautiful stones and exotic skins. These over-sized jewels are not for a wallflower!  A bold theme throughout the collection was the carved stone scarab, an ancient beetle indigenous to the Sahara.

Her classic handbag collection is offered in vibrant colored skins, which are custom died for the collection. Debuting a new style with the working professional in mind the “Trinity” bag offers plenty of space for necessities as well as a designated spot for an iPad.
