Ladies, this post may very well change your life… Well, at least the life of your heels! For soooo long, I thought I was the only girl in the world with this problem: I’d go and buy a pair of heels, and no matter how cheap or how expensive they were, a few months later the ‘heel cap’ would be completely worn off, making a horrific metal-to-floor shrill upon impact when walking (or I guess running in my life). Once that would wear away, into the garbage that pair went. Apparently, this part of the heel is replaceable, but come on, who knows how to do that, and how many cobblers do you know that are still around? To put things into perspective, I was buying a new pair black pumps every other month. Once the tip of a heel is damaged, there is no longer a purpose for that
An inside look on what you don’t know about photo shoots: Alarm goes off. It’s 4:00am. (Hits Snooze). 4:15am. There’s the alarm again. Ugh. (rolls out of bed). It’s a Thursday morning. Still pitch black outside by the way. I throw on an oversized pink blouse, leggings, and boots – trying to look at least half put together. 5:00am and we hit the road. It’s off to Fort Wayne, Indiana (normally a 5 hour drive) for a photo shoot with Willyum Photography. Big shout out to Shaun Novak for being my road trip buddy for the day (side note – he makes music and has an absolutely phenomenal voice that you should check out here). Anyways, of course this is a shoot for my all time favorite fashion designer, Andrea Howell of Tidal Cool Creations. I mean, I don’t just take day trips like this for anyone! When you model for TCC,
Fun fact: I’m originally from New Jersey (yes, I call it soda, not pop, and I am a huge fan of the New Jersey Devils). Anyways, growing up so close to NYC, it feels like home to me when I come back and I’ll take any excuse to go there. While probably unnecessary, but totally worth it, I completely insisted that I needed to be in NYC for the full seven days of fashion week festivities. I have literally been longing for this since I left NYC in September after last fashion week season. As I’m looking back on my favorite moments to share with you in this post, I cannot believe it went by so fast and that I’m already home! Not cool.

Beginning a new fashion trend by discovering and customizing contemporary art… As a publicist, I’m always on the look out for what is going to be the next big thing. I’ve found it – and it’s called, JuicyCanvas. My forward thinking fashionistas, you definitely need to give this a try. JuicyCanvas began as a passion for street art and the undiscovered artist the owners found in Buenos Aires. The concept has created a new marketplace allowing you to remix trending art and print it onto T-shirts, hoodies, mobile cases, stretched canvas, baby onesies, and more. Plus, how can you not fall in love with this little cutie?
