Second City Style featured our exclusive iGoPink: Fashion Fights Breast Cancer Pure pump as one of their "15 Pink Picks for Breast Cancer Awareness Month that ACTUALLY Donate Something You Can Feel Good About." All of the pink items featured give at least 20% to charities to help end the fight against breast cancer. We are honored to be featured on this list! Our iGoPink Pure pump in black kid suede with sparkly pink sole (to add a little flash with each step!) is a result of our partnership with the BCCA and our dedication to finding a cure. The exclusive iGoPink Pure pump is available for presale now for $125 with 20% of proceeds donated directly to the BCCA.

We opened the doors to our new "center court" location in the Beverly Center just about a week ago. We're so happy with the way it turned out. Hope all of our LA Charles David fans can get out there soon to see it! Here are a few pictures we wanted to share.
It's a video from our last Spring/Summer collection, but it's the first time we're sharing it with all of you!

A few weeks ago, before all of the fabulous Spring/Summer 2012 collections debuted at New York Fashion Week, Modellounge teamed up with Charles David for a model prep event presented by Nimble by Balance Bar. Top models were offered the opportunity to get helpful tips so they could rock it on the runways of NYFW 2011. Fashion designer Prabal Gurung and Teen Vogue's Laura Bonomo were on site to help the NYFW beauties, while runway coach Mac Folkes ran a catwalk class using all different Charles David shoes at wonderful, towering heights (to make the beautiful models even taller!). It was a fantastic event, and we're so happy we were able to help and participate. Congrats to all of the models who walked the runways in NYC! Stay tuned for more pictures and view the video of the event here.
Last week, we held a challenge for all of our Facebook and Twitter fans. We asked, "How do you wear white after Labor Day?" With so many great replies, it was hard to chose just one winner! Ultimately, we chose our winner...dun da da daaa, drumroll please! ...TAMIKA from Alexandria, VA! We think Tamika did a fantastic job of showing us a simple way of bringing white into a fall wardrobe fashionably. Her crisp white blazer really stands out against a black blouse and trousers. Wearing a neutral-colored shoe (yes, black is a neutral color!) helps to make this look fall appropriate. We would also recommend throwing in some leopard accessories, like a sassy thin belt or small handbag, for an extra punch of trendy fall style. Congrats to Tamika and thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge! Here's a little more about our winner and her fashion style:
Fashion style: Tamika loves classic looks with an edge. Adding a twist to her looks with color, accessories and mixing unexpected pieces is her self-proclaimed specialty.
On breaking fashion faux pas: "Taking a fashion risk is exciting and tests a girl's confidence and courage," says Tamika, "and can often pay off - you can become a style icon!"
Favorite Charles David Fall/Winter 2011 shoes: The KILTER in Taupe Leather and the KAITLYN in Black Suede
Tamika is the Director of Science and Research for a member association and lives in Alexandria, VA. She is also the author of her own fashion blog, Fast In Together. Follow her on Facebook and Twitter for more.
Stay tuned for more fashion challenges!
Last Thursday night our Beverly Center store was packed with not only loads of people, but with TONS of laughter and smiles at our Fashion's Night Out 2011 celebration. Shoppers crowded the store for delicious treats from Papa Cristo's Greek Restaurant, ice cold beverages from our friends at Izze, and, of course, fun photos from Rony's Photo Booth. There was such a silly, fun vibe in the store at FNO - we just loved having all of our fans with us for the night! We couldn't keep all of these amazing photos to ourselves - there were just too many hilarious ones to keep to ourselves! Check them all out on our Facebook page here. Can you find one person who didn't look like they had a blast? ...on that note, can't wait for next year!!
This past June, Nylon TV and Charles David teamed up to create a fabulous crocket-themed film inspired by The Great Gatsby. We featured 2 of our fav summer styles, the Jesta and the Spire, and had a contest for our fans to win those two styles. Our fashionable winner, Kira, loved her new freebie shoes so much that she sent us these fantastic, uber precious pics. Seriously, how fab-u-lous is she?!! We ADORE the way she styled her vintage-inspired garb with our shoes to create a chic, feminine look. We just had to share these pics!! Hope you enjoy :)

After two years in production, we just got word that the documentary, "God Save My Shoes" will be released in the U.S. this November. This film, a first of its kind, explores "the intimate relationship between women
and their shoes -- from a psychological and sociocultural perspective". In the quest to figure out how shoes have come to outshine all other accessories in the fashion world, the filmmakers traveled to New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Toronto and Milan to interview a number of designers, shoe collectors, celebrities and everyday women about their obessesion for footwear. "God Save My Shoes" will take us inside the most coveted closets, including personal collections of Dita Von Teese, Fergie, Kelly Rowland and many more.
