Designer spotlight: SJP
As a woman in love with fashion I’ve always looked up to fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker. Maybe it was her role as Carrie Bradshaw that drew me to her, but, I’ve always looked up to her for style , specifically color inspiration. Whether on or off screen , SJP has managed to consistently stand out with her stylish choices in clothing and accessories. With that being said, It comes as no surprise to me that I am absolutely swoon over her shoe line, complete with a few handbags sold exclusively at Nordstrom. The colors for this collection include a few jewel tones, along with classic fall shades such as burgundy, black and white; along with some bright hues such as coral and baby blue to add that bright pop of color to your winter wardrobe. A fun fact about the line is that SJP named all the shoes after women that inspire her, for instance “The Pat”. Inspired by Patricia Field her Sex and the city costume designer, Parker calls this one her “sexy boot” and goes on say… “It’s named for Pat Field, who had been an enormous influence on me and millions of others. Without her contributions, Carrie Bradshaw would have been incomplete.” The shoes range in prices from $232 to $695, and its made for the woman who can’t afford designer but doesn’t want cheap heels. Parker went on record saying “How could I ask someone to spend their hard earned dollars on something that I myself might not wear everyday?, I wanted a beautiful well-made shoe that was still affordable, that would last forever in your closet.”
I think compared to other high end designers out there 300 dollars for these type of shoes aren’t sooo bad , if you are willing to spend even that much, that is. Pictured are some of my favorites but, Check out the full collection at www.nordstrom.com

Women’s trend of the day

Shearling:

I tried for two days to research this subject with limited results. But here is what I did find: Shearling coats go as far back as ancient times throughout Asia and Europe. Defined as sheepskin or lambskin pelt that have gone through a limited shearing process. The material typically has leather or sueded leather on one side also, the garments and shoes are usually tanned before they are fully processed..

Looking through old fashion photos I’ve found, I see the trend in a lot of pictures from the 80s fashion scene. So, I think it’s safe to say this is an 80s trend making it way back. Functional and fashion forward, not only does shearling keep you extremely warm ; it does add a great statement piece to your winter coats. And last but not least.. I’m sure as many of you have already noticed, throughout the past couple of years a great deal of designers have been using them on their winter footwear. Definitely one way to keep those feet toes warm during these sometimes harsh winter climates. Designers that have put this trend to werk on the runway are, Etro, Prada, Tommy Hilfiger, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang, J. Mendel and a personal favorite Opening Ceremony.
