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!

We found these fantastic images of some fabulously fashionable Brits on Refinery29's Street Style page. We thought we'd give you a guide (to the shoes, of course!) on how you can achieve these Brits' stunning fall looks with the help of Charles David. Hope you enjoy :)
Featured styles (from left to right): CASTILE in red suede, BUCKIE in black leather, SALIM in blush leather, KAFTA in dark taupe leather, SAUNDRA in black leather. $240-$340, available at all Charles David stores.
We caught the beautiful Olivia Munn walking around NYC in our sexy platform peep-toe pump, the Dimora, in taupe leather/suede. So much casual, laid-back elegance emulating from that outfit! <3 her!
Recently, Who What Wear featured our Harmonious shoe in Purple Glitter on their Accessory Spotlight! This fabulous glitzy shoe will add a sensational updated disco flair to any LBD or simple pair of dark wash jeans. We're excited to have our shoe featured among the other glitterfabulous designs and can't wait for you to pick up a pair! See the full story on Who What Wear here.
The Harmonious will be available in all Charles David stores October 1st. Available in Purple Glitter, Black Glitter and Leopard Pony, $115.
Vogue recently featured one of our shoes in their September 2011 issue! The Replay, part of the Charles David collection, is featured with a variety of gorgeous, feminine fall trends and colors where red reigns supreme. We absolutely love this shoe with its simple yet elegant shape. Pair it with boot cut jeans to add a classy flair, or style it with a feminine knee-length skirt to exude all out elegance. The Replay is no doubt going to be a staple in your wardrobe this fall. We hope you love it!
The Replay will be available in Black and Brick at Charles David stores by October 1st.

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!"
