if this shoe were a party

We did a feature last year, If this shoe were a room. You all seemed to like, so in honor of NYFW Shoe Week in NYC, we’re introducing…

IF THIS SHOE WERE A PARTY.

Sometimes the perfect inspiration for an outfit or a party can be found in your closet…or by looking down. If your feeling stuck on a color scheme or ‘theme’ to a party, just look at shoes. I promise, you will be inspired. And, you can shoe shop while you’re at it…who doesn’t love that?

IF THIS SHOE WERE A PARTY…it would be a Vogue On Safari Party for Tim Walker . It’s fabulous. A safari party with a chandelier, sign me up.

#3: Licorice by Kate Spade New York, Piperlime

IF THIS SHOE WERE A PARTY…it would be a girly, neutral setting with white, tans and champagnes. These neutral shoes would be the perfect accessory for such a beautiful setting.

IF THIS SHOE WERE A PARTY…it would be a camp-style, rustic-chic shindig. More photos from this outdoor camp wedding from The Sweetest Occasion here.

#5: Valentino Couture Bow Platform Pump, Nordstrom

IF THIS SHOE WERE A PARTY…it would be a pretty, lovely party full of pink peony’s, feminine touches and woman-to-woman conversations. This pink peony dessert table featured at The Party Wagon is just stunning.

shoe week

New York City is celebrating their 2nd annual Shoe Week beginning Sept. 5. Today, we’re shopping for our favorite accessory, especially Jenna’s…SHOES!

And, since some of us can afford to splurge, and some of us can’t, we found some shoes priced high, medium and low. We can only afford to buy the high-priced shoes in our dreams…but a girl can dream…and we know that for sure!

mustache or bows, no one knows

So sorry for the lack in posts…it’s all for good reason, we promise. Jodi welcomed a sweet baby girl two weeks earlier than expected. She is so beautiful, and we are so blessed!  Mom and baby are fantastic…dad too! :)

Speaking of adorable new babies, Kristen, just had a lovely baby shower that we’re so happy to share with all of you…thanks to wonderful pics by Meredith of Meredith Moran Photography.

From Casidy of Meohmy Design: “Since we didn’t know the gender of Baby Abell we wanted to come up with a fun and cute theme that’s a little different than the normal grey and yellow. We used mustaches + bows as our starting point and created the shower around that. We kept the color scheme mostly neutral (whites and greys) but added in the color pop through the mustache and bow details…straws, food cards, etc. Instead of playing traditional shower games, we wanted to leave Baby Abell with warm wishes; a cool and unique keepsake for the parents and for the child as he/she grows up. Favors sometimes get tricky but we didn’t want the guests to leave empty-handed. So, we kept within our theme and made little stickers saying “Kristen’s about to pop” that were stuck onto bags full of sweet kettle corn.”
