I have expressed my love of Jenna Lyons and her creative eye numerous times here. I find that anytime they turn the camera on her the passion she has and love for what she does just radiates. Yet another fantastic example of this is in the new video J Crew released this morning called “Shiny Ponies.”
Between leopard being a “neutral” and proclaiming that when she throws on a silver, 5-inch pump and all of a sudden she feels prettier; I love her honest passion about not only shoes, but the ones they make as a brand.
What do you think? Do you have certain shoes that make you feel empowered or put an extra spring in your step? I sure do. Maybe even my fully golden glitter mary-jane pumps I picked up on sale at their store to celebrate finally selling my car…
“There’s a sense of sparkle in a shoe… and I don’t mean sequins.” – Jenna Lyons
On Wednesday I had the lovely opportunity to go to the Behind Closed Doors VIP party down at Solestruck celebrating their new Spring arrivals and showing off some of the yummy things coming in for next season. With champagne flowing, discounts being handed out and beautiful people trying on some majorly beautiful shoes, it was a recipe for all things wonderful.
They also were playing their fantastic new lookbook On the Road as we all shopped. If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t waste anymore time.
Morgan in shoe lust.
There were so many lovely shoes, but by far my favorite of the night was the United Nude Abstract Rome Hi. What a beauty, right? I clearly wasn’t the only one with an eye for this little diddy either because every time I looked up from my love affair there was a new girl with them slipping onto her foot.
The good news if you didn’t make it to the party? They’re throwing another one! You can always count on these cats to have a fun party, and luckily Spring Break is the perfect excuse. Details below.
Spring Break party Saturday April 7th, 2012
Solestruck will be kicking of their new pop up with Saltwater Gypsy Vintage & Tnemnroda Jewelry. Expect a DJ, lots of beer, free goodie bags to the first 100 people through the door and wait for it, wait for it… we’ll be giving away 5 pairs of Jeffrey Campbell Litas! Fun will be happening all day but the DJ, giveaways and goodie bags don’t start till 7pm.
Solestruck isn’t the only one getting in on the fun either…
Isaac Hers will be hosting a “Make My Break” sale and party. Get 20% off apparel plus an EXTRA 5% off when you Check-In at their store on Facebook. They’ll be partying from 3-9 pm with drinks starting at 3 pm and a DJ at 6 pm.
The Woodlands and Tanner Goods will be serving up beer from Ninkasi, stayin’ open late, and offering some sale goods.
Dunderdon will have beer and a Sale too!
Moral of the story? Get down there Saturday for fun, goodies, cocktails and shoes!
