DSW Treats Friends & Celebs to Exclusive Sneak Peak at Fall Footwear

Designer Shoe Warehouse offered an exclusive sneak peak of the Fall 2013 collection last Thursday at Sony Studios in Culver City, CA.  The event took place on the actual sets of DSW’s upcoming Fall commercials, including a glamorous shoe closet that any women would die to have! 


Guests were like kids in a shoe candy store, sampling the hottest heels and boots from the new line set to hit stores in August.  Expect to see a lot of sophisticated pumps and heels this Fall, as well as boots with more minimal hardware than in seasons past.


The budget friendly retailer also revealed some of the latest selections from their Luxe810 line, a collection of shoes from renowned fashion brands and labels but at a fraction of the cost.  Prada and Gucci for 60% off? Yes, please!


Actresses Marcia Cross (“Desperate Housewives”) and Claire Holt (“The Vampire Diaries”) were among the celebs that joined the fashionable festivities.


To top it off, guests indulged on tasty cupcakes from Sprinkles, mini-massages provided by Spa on Location, custom nail design by Kleur and a hair blowout by Drybar

A Day On Set:  Access Hollywood

The Access Hollywood segments that I shot for DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse aired over the last two weeks…and I just had to thank everyone for watching and for all your sweet comments!  It’s always a blast working with the adorable and fun loving Kit Hoover, and of course, sharing all the latest trends at amazing prices from my friends at DSW Shoes!


In the first segment, we dished about the hottest spring shoe trends.  It’s all about Modern Romance, with shoes and accessories with lots of flirty and feminine details.  Floral prints of all sizes are a must have, while dainty bows and ruffles add a sweet touch to more simple styles.  Pastels are also a refreshing way to kick off the spring season!



The second segment was my personal favorite!  With the summer travel months ahead, there’s nothing like adding a little Global Inspiration to your wardrobe!  With bold colors, graphic prints, and lots of beading and embellishments, you can feel like you’ve travelled the world just by putting on a fabulous pair of shoes!  Wedges and sandals are perfect for summertime, both being versatile and stylish!

I had a fabulous time on Friday shooting an interstitial spot for DSW Shoes!  I was on set of the Style Network’s “How Do I Look?” with the entire stage and closet branded by DSW. 


I felt like a kid in a candy store with all the beautiful clothes and shoes on set!  One of the coolest additions was the revolving DSW shoe closet, complete with all the most glamorous luxury footwear!


Tune in to the Style Network in May when these spots will air during “How Do I Look?”  Great fashion happens when you think outside the shoebox!

I had a blast last weekend, attending the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas!  Along with my friends at DSW, Designer Shoe Warehouse, we attended the Decades of Dreams Gala on Friday night, where we had the chance to mingle with all of the contestants and their families.  The highlight of the evening was seeing all the Miss America “formers”!  As this was the 90th Anniversary of the Miss America Pageant, they invited many of the former winners to be a part of this years event.  There were winners from as far back as the 1940’s and they still looked fantastic! After all these years, they were all so beautiful and regal!

Saturday night was the main event and as I was with the proud sponsors, I had the chance to sit in the front row! If you watched the show live on ABC, I was seated right behind judge, Joy Behar! The show was a lot of fun and it was great to see all the contestants compete live and in person.  As for fashion, there were A LOT of sequins and rhinestones! But would you expect anything less from the Miss America Pageant? In addition to the bling bling, all the contestants were wearing specially designed shoes from DSW!  Along with the Miss America Organization, DSW recently launched a line of day and evening shoes that are sold exclusively at DSW!  Definitely worth checking out!

As for the contestants, I was routing for Miss Arkansas, especially after her fantastic ventriloquist performance!  But, congratulations to the newest and youngest crowned Miss America, Teresa Scanlan of Nebraska!  After having a chance to listen to Teresa speak at the post show press conference, she was indeed amazing, and very deserving of her new crown.  The judges made a great choice!

Fall Shoe Trends 2010

The biggest shoe trends for Fall are funky and functional, from booties with statement hardware to platforms that can be worn from day to night.  Shoe designers are mixing it up this season, by adding cool accents and details to our favorite looks.  And with the following styles all under $100, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg when stocking up on all the hottest Fall shoe trends!  

Ankle Booties 

This 80s inspired trend hit the scene a few years ago, but this season, they’re a lot more grown up.  For Fall, the look will be more fashion forward with daring and dramatic details, such as sexy peep toes, geometric cut outs, and bold cage straps.  These sexy ankle booties would compliment everything from denim to a great dress!    

Jones New York Perdy Bootie $69.95 (DSW)

SM Luxe Raptor Sandals $69.95 (DSW)

DKNY Antonia Bootie $99.95 (DSW)


Inspired by the rugged yet sexy, military looks that graced the Fall runways, shoes with statement hardware are going to be everywhere this Fall.  From buckles and grommets, to buttons and studs, plan to see boots, heels, and flats rockin’ these bold accessories.  

Coconuts Raskin Clog $59.95 (DSW)

Blowfish Himble Bootie $54.95 (DSW)

White Mountain Grandstand Boot $59.95 (DSW)


Thanks to the popularity of the boyfriend jean and blazer, shoes with a masculine appeal are going to be a casual and sophisticated trend for Fall.  Everything from oxfords, trouser flats, and booties with chunkier heels are going to be all the rage amongst the bohemian set.  

Envy Tango Oxford $59.95 (DSW)

MIA Girl Trainee Bootie $49.95 (DSW)

Platform Pumps  

With all this menswear inspiration, it’s time to bring the sexy back with ultra feminine platform pumps!  As THE go to shoe for Hollywood celebrities, platform pumps are simple and elegant with a twist.  The added boost from the platform gives the shoe an edge that you wouldn’t get from a traditional stiletto.  Like classic black heels and nude pumps, this must have style is a staple for every woman’s wardrobe!
