The Three Winter Accessories You Need to Get Your Hands On

Dec 27, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Gingerbread cookies, holiday parties and gift-giving (and receiving) aside, the best part about winter is the luxury fashion items we get to wear, in our opinion. Coats and corduroys are great, but it's the amplitude of accessories that can make or break an outfit. Better yet, there are so many accessory options that may just allow you to rock that same grey sweater a hundred different ways. Read on for a compilation of our favorite winter accessories this season.... Read More

Dec 18, 2012  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart

Using her aesthetic talent and bold patterns to adorn the often neglected undersides of a stiletto, Taylor Reeve is intent on spreading her art to the streets with her luxury shoe collection, TaylorSays....

She Does WHAT to Her Louboutins?!

Oct 24, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Last season saw budget-savvy women getting creative to get the kind luxury fashion look that only Christian Louboutins can achieve. While several ladies painted the soles of their stilettos red, one well-known celebrity did just the opposite. Martha Stewart alters her designer shoes by painting the soles black, and she’s not discreet about her personal fashion taste. While we’re glad that Stewart at least asked Louboutin’s permission before committing the ultimate fashion sacrilege, we can’t really find anything classy about the way she walked the red carpet openly expressing her distaste of the designer’s trademark to reporters....
