Fun with Frances

We shot our Fall 2011 campaigns in New York City a few weeks ago.  For Charles by Charles David, we were inspired by a group of girls hanging out after school, sharing stories, gossip and laughter with their friends. Frances was one of the models we selected and since our shoot, we've spotted her in a number of fun photo and fashion blog features.  (Notice Luisa, our face of Spring/Summer, also included in Skye Parrott's work for Dossier's 'New Faces'.)   

Our Fall campaigns won't launch until August but we promise to post behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot very soon.

The Stork Report: Natalie Portman

We just read on that Natalie Portman and her fiance, Benjamin Millepied, welcomed a baby boy.  It's been a big year for this young actress and we wish her all the best in her new role as a Mom!

Patent Pop

Take a cue from Cameron Diaz in our Who What Wear Look of the Day and give your wardrobe a pop with patent! 

Cameron's summer whites (mixed with a dash of cherry) work well with a glossy, nude sandal like our TRACY.  When worn with a skirt or a pair of shorts, it elongates the leg and highlights the foot.  If you're heading out on an evening date or a girl's night, a stronger punch may be in order.  Choose this heel in grey or black patent to rock your look.  

Warning! This shoe is likely to attract attention. Make sure your polish is fresh and ready.

Summer Neutrals

We found a post on dedicated to Charles David's "Versatile Summer Classics".  Their picks for a polished yet casual look – the CLEMSON wedge and GRATUITY sandal.  With these neutrals, "simple outfits look a little fresher".  The versatility of these shades allow you to pair them "with a
flash of neon (we love nude with pink) or a floral print". 

While on this blog, we read their 'About' statement: This is a blog about shoes. Shoes we want, maybe some shoes we own, and
probably occasionally some shoes we really, really hate. We like shoes
and people who like shoes. So if you like shoes, are we are guessing
you do because here you are at blog called, then we
already have something in common.
Just for that and, of course, their flattering dedication, we are now followers.

Dream a Closet Dream

As most women do, we dream about shoes... a closet full of beautiful heels, wedges, sandals and more.  Take Sex in the City, for example, Carrie's shoe wardrobe is what many of us would kill for.  The Coveteur is a blog that allows us to drool over the closets of some of fashion's elite.  It's a behind-the-scenes look at what makes up each individual's style.  Step inside and see the vast selection and inspirational organization of these ladies' personal collections.  If only everyone's closet looked like these.  

Nicky Hilton, Designer/Entrepreneur/Heir to the Hiton Hotel dynasty. - "My weakness is shoes."

Khloe Kardashian, Reality Star/Entrepreneur/Famous Family Member. - “I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated,
and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where
each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved!"

Katherine Power, Creative Director and Co-Founder, - "The key to
happiness in my closet is editing. I only keep the items that I am
wearing that moment, everything else is stored in bins until the season
(or my mood) changes."

Emily Current, Stylist/Consultant/Owner of Current/Elliott denim. - "I see some themes here in my shoe closet…Gold, glitter, leopard, studs! I swear - these are all shoes I actually wear. Hooray for being a girl!"
