nyfw a/w day 4 + a new shoe crush






Jacket: Alexander McQueen (similar style here on sale!); Sweater: J.Crew; Dress: Tibi; Shoes: thanks to Henri Lepore Dezert; Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Celine; Lips: Stila "Beso"

New York just has a magic way of bringing people together. And I love it.

Case in point: while in between shows at Lincoln Center, I ducked into a nearby Starbucks to 1.) search high and low for an outlet to charge my phone at and 2.) ease the frostbite. As I patiently waited with my fellow low-battery folks, I started chatting with a sweet girl about a new luxury shoe designer she was working with, Henri Lepore Dezert. Being the sucker that I am for shoes, I cleared my afternoon to check out the debut collection at the Viceroy Hotel nearby.

I'm so glad I did. The shoes, all Italian leather, made in Milan, are equal parts classic and fresh (something I find myself reaching for more often than my quirky, statement shoes to be honest). And Henri and his wife were a dream to hang out with for the afternoon. What was originally supposed to be a quick drop in turned into several hours of chatting over wine, admiring the view from the penthouse suite and swooning over beautiful shoes. I love unexpected and unplanned afternoons like that.

Huge thanks again to the Henri Lepore Dezert team for having this cold, weary traveler for the afternoon. I had a lovely time and am definitely your latest biggest fan.

  17. I hope you didn't get any frostbite on your feet wearing heels that are mostly opened and exposed to the freezing air! Love the look of the skirt of course.

  25. Those shoes are really amazing indeed. The ankle straps on top of the T-straps just funk the shoes up so nicely!
