The holidays are inching closer and closer. Think cake, champagne, and lots of lights. As the city begins to light up, so do I. Check out the insane Stuart Weitzman Flash 75 sock boot. This year, I’m wearing a lot of black with a hint of shimmer with everything from my boots to my dresses. What I love about this shoe is that it’s both luxurious and wearable with it’s super soft suede upper and gorgeous crystal encrusted heel. Stuart Weitzman is a master at taking the everyday, elegant must-haves and totally revamping them. I can’t live without a black sock boot, and now, I have one that feels more festive than ever. I’m super excited for a winter on both coasts. Barelegged in Los Angeles versus being snuggled up with a fuzzy scarf and sheer tights in New York. I think this look will be on repeat a lot this season. Watch out.
The Stuart Weitzman SW- 612 sneaker is sleek, sports-chic, and what I’m wearing with just about everything. It’s my fashion hero in that I reach to them non-stop, especially on the weekends in cozy, color-blocked outfits. With fall and all the rain we’ve been having, I’m feeling a clean slate. The means refreshing and becoming a minimalist with my closet. I may really take on that Scandinavian style and mindset. The SW-612 feel minimal and completely fresh. They are zero fuss, and 100% comfortable chic. The way they move and bend makes me think I can even bring them to my next dance class. I think you’ve just found your new sneaker must-have right? I love them in black, but I’m eyeing them in Cabernet and Dovetail Blue grey. Which color is your favorite?
I can spot this Stuart Weitzmanblue hue from a mile away. It’s a gorgeous and bold color you can’t really find anywhere else. When I rock a blue, I like to keep everything a bit tonal like a denim jacket and matching pant, with easy slides. Meet the new shoebox shoulder bag by Stuart Weitzman. It is completely inspired by their classic shoebox packaging. This structured bag is a new and modern piece that really works with just about everything. It’s striking yet versatile. I like to say it’s my mini weekender…roomy enough for all the necessities, yet comfortable enough to carry around day in and day out. I was out for a friend’s birthday brunch in the East Village and a laidback downtown look like this one should require zero thought. Go for your best denim and blues and call it a day. Comfort here is key. That means, having a bag that can literally carry it all. Stuart Weitzman always pushes the boundaries with their sleek designs in supreme leathers that stay so true to their heritage. Now I’ve got a bag to match my shoe collection.
The Stuart Weitzman EYELOVE mule may just be the it slide of the season. They’re totally grab n’ go, are lined with shearling, and are on a mission to give back. This Stuart Weitzman x Gigi Hadid shoe is working to build three additional schools with Pencils of Promise, an organization dedicated to making quality education available to children all over the world. Every time I look down at my feet, I’m reminded that it’s possible to make change…even in the little things. I have been wearing this mule to elegantly dress down just about everything I own…even with my favorite power suit. Now this is how I like to go from the office to the open road. I found this beautiful location here in Los Angeles, by my family’s home and have been drawn to it ever since. I fell in love with it’s majestic mountains, neutral color palette, and blue skies. It feels so powerful. The perfect place to spread the strong energy of the EYELOVE mule. This “evil eye” symbol carries a powerful message that never goes out of style. It protects us from negative energies, making sliding into the New Year on a positive note a breeze. Sometimes we need that little feeling of comfort and protection to give us that extra push. The EYELOVE mule easily incorporates a positive spiritual connection into our everyday, and I love every bit of it.
