  • Trend Alert! Embellished Sneakers for Spring and...Prom?

    There is a fabulous foot trend that has everyone talking! From the runways to the streets, designers and celebs are opting for some fancy footwork...and they're not high heals. They're rocking embellished sneakers! With Spring 2014 just around the corner, it's the perfect time to try new trends out, and ditching your typical cross trainers to add instant glam to any outfit is certainly a great way to start! Designers like Christian Dior and Chanel flaunted their pumped up kicks adorned with sequins, pearls, and other embellishments on the runways of fashion week, and the runway looks are already hitting the streets. We are loving this trend and can't wait to see how it continues to grow!

    The designers at Christian Dior had models in athletic mesh shoes adorned with multicolored sequins. Chanel also took a bold fashion choice by dressing models in chunky sneakers embellished with tweed, shiny leather, and sheer laces giving the shoes an ultra feminine look.

    We are loving these designs and think this fun footwear trend will not only be popular on the streets, but will carry into prom. Many prom dress designers are photographing models wearing high-tops embellished with crystals, interesting textures, and zippers. Even though the Chanel version can cost up to $4,000, you can still get the look with other inexpensive designers and can even make a pair yourself with some time and creativity!

    Of course, if you love high heels, it doesn't mean you have to lose your pumps to rock sneakers at prom. Wear your heels to the dance, but bring the sneakers as your go-to comfy option once your feet start to get tired. Or, keep the heels on all night and rock the sparkly shoes for after-prom!

  • Tips on How to Get Prom Ready

    Prom is only weeks away, and we're sure that you're ready to bust a move on the dance floor. But, before the biggest night of the year, you have to make sure everything goes perfect...down to the nitty gritty details! In order to have a stress-free night, try to get everything done way in advance and have a handy check list. We are here to guide you through this stressful preparation, so we came up with important tips to follow for your dazzling night! This is a great list to print out and keep with you in the coming weeks to make sure there's nothing you forget!

    Make sure your dress is tailored to perfection

    Most of the time, dresses don't fit perfectly. You don't want to be uncomfortable and swimming in your dress! Go to the right seamstress and have her tailor it to your size and length. The length is especially important - you don't want it dragging on the dance floor. Make sure to bring the shoes you plan on wearing that night so that the seamstress can hem the dress properly.

    Choose your Hair Style

    Your hair is crucial! Make sure you book your appointment early enough in the day to give yourself plenty of time to get ready for Prom - you don't want to be late! Search for hairstyle ideas online and in magazines and bring pictures in with you so that the hairdresser knows what you want. You should also consider how it will look with your dress. Up-dos and half up-dos are great for one shoulder or high neck dresses. Strapless gowns can go with just about any hairstyle. One fun way to keep track of the hairstyles you like and compare them to each other is to make a Pinterest board.

    Makeup and Nails to Compliment your Dress

    You might want to book an appointment for makeup and nails also. You never know how crowded your favorite nail salon might be or how long the wait is for makeup. Getting a manicure and pedicure a couple days before is a great way for making prom day errands easier - just make sure that you don't chip them! If your prom dress is loaded with beads or has super bright colors, it's better to tone down your makeup and nails. Neutral nail colors and neutral eyeshadow colors are best with bright colors, lots of beading, and print. If you are wearing a neutral colored dress, you can go crazy...bold lips and bright nail polish for a pop of color!

    Add some Bling with Jewelry

    Prom Jewelry

    Jewelry is another important detail. It for the most part has the same makeup and nails rule; if you're wearing a blinged out sequin dress, you're going to want to tone down the jewelry. Otherwise, you'll have sparkle overload! Too much can overkill your whole look, so try to keep it simple.

    Complete your Look with your Shoes

    Your shoes are what completes your look. You don't want to look like your in pain in a gorgeous dress. Practice makes perfect! Try breaking them in a few weeks before. If that doesn't help, try slipping in padding or insoles. If your shoes are too tight, find a local shoe repairman and have them stretched out. You'll have a more confident walk!

    Add a Hint of Personality with your Purse

    A purse is always a great way to add some personality to any outfit. Pick a simple bag that blends in with your dress, or choose a funky clutch that's the statement piece of your outfit! Just remember, depending on your dress and jewelry, you don't want to be too blinged out.

    Don't forget your Camera!

    Of course, the most important accessory of all is your camera! It's a special night, and you'll want to take all the photos you can. Whether a disposable, a point-and-shoot, or the handy dandy camera on your smart phone, just make sure that you have plenty of room to take lots and lots of pictures. And, ideally, have something small enough that fits in your purse!

  • Shoe Love - Advice on Formal Shoe Shopping

    Shoes Shoes Shoes Shoes!!!!

    Every girl out there loves shoe shopping, and what's the problem with that?  Shoes are the perfect accessory, go with you everywhere, and make you feel confident and stylish! The perfect pair of shoes can really make an outfit incredible, so when shoe shopping you need to make a commitment to the shoes you buy.  Here are some tips on buying a pair of high heels for your formal event.

    When buying shoes for a formal event, always take into consideration your dress.  If you have a fancy, elaborate dress, then you’ll want a plain pair of shoes so that your style isn’t too overwhelming.  A basic black, white, or silver pair of high heels with a touch of sparkle should do the trick.  For dresses that aren’t as fanciful, get creative with your shoe choice!

    Lately a popular style has been to pair colorful shoes with little black dresses.  Worn with a black dress, bright pink or yellow pumps with matching accessories will add a fun pop to your outfit.  For a formal occasion like a wedding, Homecoming or Prom you might want your shoes to match the color of your dress.  In that case you can purchase a pair of white shoes and have them dyed.  If you don’t want to go through the trouble of getting your shoes dyed, then stick to the basics of shoe matching.  Never mix black with navy blue, go for a silver shoe if the color of your dress is hard to match, and only pick white shoes if you’re wearing a light colored dress.

    Considering the height of a pair of high heels can be a big factor too.  If you’re a heel veteran, than you might not have to worry when picking out a 4” tall pair of heels.  For those not so accustomed to wearing high heels, aim for finding a pair that are a little bit closer to the ground.  You can still look just as cute in a pair of heels that are 2-3” tall.
