Who better than the woman most synonymous with shoes to become the namesake of a shoe line. Sarah Jessica Parker’s new shoe line, SJP, will launch in January.

Sarah Jessica Parker is launching SJP–her first shoe collection in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik–bringing her character Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe dreams to life. Parker’s Sex and the City character is a style icon and because she “got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes, and by default I learned an enormous amount,” the actress told Vogue. Bradshaw’s alter ego is offering “something different” to reflect her personal taste and, according to British Vogue, “old-school labels like Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon” inspired her collection. “We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do.”
SJP will be introduced in Nordstrom stores, but everyone can shop the collection online at Nordstrom.com. The line will include sandals, flats, pumps, and boots ranging from $200 to $400. Which is what you’d expect from the woman who’s television persona, Carrie Bradshaw once confessed to owning about $40,000 in shoes. The line will be sold exclusively through Nordstrom in 2014.

New York Fashion Week has just ended and we’re already looking forward to seeing Spring trends arrive on store shelves. Are you looking for ways to usher a little Spring into your step? As we all know, fashion can be difficult to follow. In an industry where one color, fabric or pattern can be insanely hot one minute and totally out the next, there’s no doubt that keeping up is no easy task. There’s no reason why we can’t cheat Mother Nature and beat seasonal style to the punch…take a leap of stylish faith by trying out these haute Spring trends today…

Rise and Shine in Iridescent Glory
We’re just basking in the dreamy haze of iridescent bags, shades, and fabrics as far as we can see. One thing was sure on the catwalks of London Fashion Week — shine is going to big come Spring. Mulberry’s shiny separates in English garden-inspired floral prints were balanced out with soft leather trousers, Antipodium layered tailored waistcoats over gold dresses, and Topshop Unique also showed how to keep iridescents low-key by teaming silver trousers and skirts with simple white tees and pastel knits.
Spice it up with sporty dress wear
Kick things up a notch in tailored baseball and tennis tops, painterly snap-back caps, and body-conscious street wear that show off your best moves (and curves). Spring’s sporty dresses—with their flirty A-line skirts and shoulder-showcasing bodices paired with tights and booties are the way to go until Mother Nature says so.
Answer The Call Of The Jungle
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the diva struts tonight….Heed calls of the wild wherever they lead. Pop graphics, tropical fruit motifs, and patterns made for preening add up to a killer look.
As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, one of the highlights of the week is the Betsey Johnson Fall 2013 Collection. Energetic 70 year old cart wheel diva Betsey Johnson debuted her Fall 2013 Collection to much surprise as most thought she was doomed after filing for bankruptcy. Apparently backer Steven Madden stepped in and save the day. Best known for her pouffy and frilly dresses, Johnson showed her new active wear line on a catwalk that included cell phones, flirting, and a dynamic exercise routine led by the designer that included running in place, yoga and pull-ups.
The garments presented were a mix of workout gear, party dresses, and accessories, all styled together in a wild explosion of colors -yellow, teal and hot pink lyrca -and layers. Cropped workout pants and zip-up jackets were printed with BJKicksA, the theme of for the show itself. Non-active wear clothes included sheer maxi dresses worn over leggings topped with faux fur.
Activewear by Betsey Johnson includes neon-spotted matching pantsets, topped with hot pink quilted vests. Models wearing these sporty numbers ended up prone on the floor, arms outstretched, doing yoga poses!After the model walked, they formed a line, where Johnson led a spirited “class” where tights were used for pulls and champagne bottle were used as resistance. The runway instantly transformed into a yoga studio with a series of curls, crunches, and sit-ups!
Betsey Johnson closed her show with her daughter Lulu, granddaughters and signature cartwheel with the loudest crowd ovation heard within the tents. What are your thoughts on the Betsey Johnson Fall 2013 collection? Will you be watching the reality TV shows “Betsey and Lulu” next month?

Fresh from the debut of her Ready-To-Wear Fall collection, Vera Wang has once again inspired beauty, sensuality and sophistication in her designs. Very seldom can you witness a design collection that takes your breath away, but once you do experience it, it’s sure to be a moment that you’ll never forget. The Vera Wang Fall 2013 Ready To Wear Collection, may not be ready to wear everyday however the beauty of being a woman is the versatility that you have to transform your look in any way, every day.
Let’s go back to London 2012 (not London Fashion Week per se’ – moreso London shop style). Last August, while shopping in a local London boutique I discovered a beautiful metallic, monochromatic brocade dress and instantly fell in love with it. Little did I know, the Vera Wang collection would be such a sophisticate interpretation of the growing and ever-present brocade trend.
Not to say that Vera Wang’s collection was inspired by my London Instagram flicks (that would be cool to think though…LOL) however, the textures and beautiful colors throughout the collection are elegant as they are sensually stunning.
Bountiful Brocade Parade: Beautiful patterns and intricate brocade details illuminate the runway in deep metallic hues and accents of deep purples, green and orange. The Vera Wang Fall Read To Wear Collection speaks sensual sophistication infused with an artful opulence without saying a single word.
Embellished prints and voluminous hip lines heightened by the moody jewel tones and plenty (plenty) of black was seen cascading down the runway. Only Vera Wang could bring such art and sincere style to a collection without sacrificing her commitment to strong, poignant trends. I am in LOVE with the classic look and feel that only richly decorative brocade fabrics can provide in design and lucky for me, there’s enough love in this Vera Wang Collection to go around.

It’s been an incredible 2013 for Jason Wu thus far. Just last month, he debuted his retail-friendly line, Miss Wu, exclusively for Nordstrom on Jan. 7. (already worn by First Lady Michelle Obama) inspired by chic girls with their boyfriends in the 1960’s and beyond. It’ only makes sense, during New York Fashion Week, Wu’s back at it again. While reports circulated concerns of sparsely attended shows due to the affects of NEMO blizzard - Jason Wu packed a full house! At one of the most anticipated shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, revealing the Jason Wu Fall Winter 2013 collection, Wu wowed fashionistas worldwide again.
The collection “Extreme Femininity” included stark white, black, fur, snakeskin, fire engine red and a piercing shot of violet, the silhouettes included exaggerated shoulders in fur shrugs and trench coats, pleated maxi and mini skirts, and a lot of sheer fabric.
“It’s all about the embodiment of a woman—powerful, sensual, sexy, glamorous,” said Jason Wu as he unveiled his looks board backstage before his show. “I wanted to project beauty—beautiful clothes and beautiful women.” But as Wu added, “with every hard edge there’s softness.”
His 2013 take on evening wear puts a new spin on the peplum trend, incorporating it into tuxedo pants instead of skirts or tops.
Ostrich feathers incorporated into 2 dresses, definitely wowed us all especially the winter white one!
Cocktail dresses and tops will get us all ready for the 2014 Gala season with Grecian inspiration. Will it long before Jason creates another custom fit for our First Lady inspired by this collection? We can hardly bare the suspense to see what other amazing work Jason will unveil this year!

An honorable mention goes to Serena Williams and Rocsi Diaz. Serena rocked this fire red dress with these Nike kicks. This is a trend, dress with gym shoes, has been kicking around for some time now and shows no sign of letting go soon as fashionistas are lending more towards “comfortable flyness!!!”
