Shoe greenery on St.Patty’s day

18 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

I am not particularly in love with “color overkill” on certain days, like red on Christmas, yellow-ish on Easter and… green on St.Patrick’s day. But, to acknowledge you are still on the same boat, and for the “team spirit” it is fun to add some color elements. In this case, let’s talk about shoes! They are always fun to experiment with and hey, let’s face it, there are never too many, why not get another green pair?

So, here are some finding I dug (and had a great pleasure doing so) from various places. Hope you enjoy!

For $175.99, you can have those incredibly cute  LISA FOR DONALD PLINER heels over HERE on 6pm

Love these laced up with mesh detail MACEY flats from ASOS for just $44.76! Over HERE

For their traditional $39.95, JustFab offers these classic Paulette (you have to be registered with them to see):

Adore these 50-60ss POETIC LICENSE ORIENT EXPRESS (also available in other colors) for $99.00 on Zappos HERE

These adorable flops are perfect for running errands but still being a little bit elevated from earth. LILIBET WEDGE SANDALS, b.o.c. by BORN, on sale for $59.99 in Macy’s HERE. “Borns” are always so incredibly comfortable, I recommend having a pair in your car all the time just in case it was “kill the feet by shoes” day.

From casual to incredible we jump, look at these fantastic CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA wire-heel platform sandal from Neiman Marcus “just” for $2,395.00!!! HERE

Very elegant and classy, but still witty Kate Spade New York LATRICE COLORBLOCK SATIN POINT TOE PUMPS from Saks Fifth Avenue, for $298.00, HERE


And finally, cute “dessert” surpsise, green by all means, Vihreä alku Green start 2005, by Finnish designer Annie Rapinoja. I’m guessing, not to buy, not to wear, but just enjoy the piece of art and remember staying green. By all means.

Have a great St.Patrick’s celebration!

Jimmy Choos spice up your feet and help the pups

13 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Saturday afternoon lots of Jimmy Choos have been walked off by many passionate fashionistas in private reception room in Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria. The invite-only event attracted shoe lovers and media (one doesn’t exclude the other), for the trend presentation by Karen Sommer Shalett, Editor-in-Chief of DC Magazine, and a chance to win a pair of Jimmys! Light bites and champagne were served. Ten percent of sales benefited Washington Humane Society.

Gilt City’s warehouse/closet revealed

14 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Friday the 10th Gilt City DC gave access to its treasured warehouse to the VIP/press, with following sale event on Saturday for the public. Long View gallery was buzzing and babbling with excitement of privileged shoppers, digging through goods and sipping on the campaign. Rivers of designers garments, shoes, accessories and whatnot were filtered by DC fashionistas, leaving messy piles behind like 3 year-olds on Halloween playdate. Yours truly attended the first part and it was scary to imagine what has actually happened on Saturday night with about 1000 people RSVPd for the event.

Enjoy some pics which I could not help but treat in randomly vintage-y style. Oh and by the way those granola bars were beyond amazing. What was the brand again? Were eaten ruthlessly.

Tons and tons of stuff! I wonder if there is anything left now?

Excitment sprinkling
