Wedges to Cruise In: All Feet on Deck

Wedges to Cruise In

Now is as much the time to stock up on cute wedges as it is the time to collect winter coats. Why? Because you should be leaving those bulky jackets behind and hopping on a cruise! When I know I have a seafaring adventure on the horizon, the first thing I shop for is the perfect wedge. The ones I have my eye on are fun, practical (well, some more than others…*cough* McQueen *cough*), and most importantly, comfortable. Even if you aren’t escaping to somewhere tropical, they make for chic lunch, dinner, or any old time shoes if you’re as flat-averse as I am.

Neoprene Supreme: The Fit List


Neoprene Supreme

When it comes to sexy with a dash of athleticism, nothing beats neoprene. Every season we see more and more of the flexible fabric, on both dresses that mold flawlessly to your body and shoes that, as Balenciaga points out, fit like a glove. Whether you’re looking for a full sheath or simply a sporty accent, this season brings more than enough stretchy options to wrap yourself in…

Cushnie et Ochs Off-the-Shoulder Stretch-Neoprene Dress:icon This already sold out once on NET-A-PORTER, and just looking at its subtly seductive cuts, it’s no great wonder why they decided to restock. 

Lanvin Neoprene Sleeveless Peplum Sheath:icon The structure of neoprene lends itself beautifully to a strong peplum that will maintain its shape, rather than wilt around you. 

Stella McCartney Polka-Dot-Embossed Neoprene Top:icon Stars, polka dots…Stella’s having fun this season, and the feeling is infectious. 

Balenciaga Neoprene Glove Sandals:icon Where Alex Wang goes, so does neoprene! A couple of swatches of the blue fabric give this classic sandal an energetic, modern feel. 

Alexander Wang Karen Neoprene Slingback Pumps: Alex Wang’s urban warrior will have no trouble pounding the pavement in elastic-strapped slingbacks. On Shopbop for $625.

Aquilano-Rimondi Knee Length Skirt:icon Neoprene mesh offers a basic gray skirt a more editorial look. This is the perfect transitional piece for fall.

Rosantica Giovanna Oxidized Gold-Tone Beaded Body Chain: Chain of Events

Rosantica Giovanna Oxidized Gold-Tone Beaded Body Chain

We often think of jewels as accessories, pieces to put on after our outfit is, for the most part, already planned out. This oxidized gold-tone Rosantica body chain, however, is no mere accessory. The bronze, silver, and black beaded topper is what you plan a look around. Its Milanese-crafted strands will act as a cape for your bare shoulders this summer (think of it as a sophisticated take on all of those bikini and leg chains you see around), and come winter, it won’t go into hibernation; imagine this over sweaters or boat neck dresses at holiday parties! Maybe it’s because I’ve still got Khaleesi’s style on the brain, but I also love the idea of this serving as a regal accent over a dramatic gown. Sure, you wouldn’t wear it running errands, but overall, this is avery versatile piece. What would you pair it with? Available on NET-A-PORTERicon for $1,865.

Gigi Hadid To Walk for The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015


In an adorable surprise, 20-year-old Gigi Hadid received the news of a lifetime. The model thought she was in for an everyday casting for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015, but she didn’t know the news that awaited her. Gigi Hadid’s lifelong dream of walking a Victoria’s Secret show has been confirmed, and what better debut stage than the 20th anniversary show?

Gigi Hadid for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015

Victoria’s Secret shared a short video clip on Twitter, showing this moment and the gorgeous model’s reaction was priceless. You could clearly see the excitement in her reaction, and the fact that her dream was actually coming true is a beautiful thing for anyone to see. Along with the video clip, the lingerie brand posted a cohesive sweet tweet: “We [love] surprises so here’s a BIG one for @GiGiHadid at the #VSFashionShow castings! See you on the runway, Gigi.”

To show her appreciation and joy for the announcement, Hadid lit up her Instagram. She posted a photo of her crying from the casting, with the post, “Couldn’t keep back my tears!!!! Anyone that grew up with me knows that getting this show has been a dream of mine forever!” You don’t even need to see the photo to hear the absolute joy she was experiencing at this time – and we’re all alight with excitement, too, knowing the VS anniversary show is just around the corner. And now that we know Gigi Hadid will be a part of it, everything is even better. “One of the greatest moments of my life,” she said, thanking Ed Razek for her new role in the show.

Granted, the spot in the VS fashion show doesn’t give Hadid her Angel wings, but it sure is a step in the right direction. I think I speak for us all when I say Gigi Hadid is a no brainer to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her passion, not to mention her killer body, is perfect for the brand, and there is no doubt the model would fit in with the other Angels, and stand out in all the right ways.

Now we’re going to dip into the rumor mill a little bit. While this news may not be confirmed, it would certainly add a delicious layer of fun for Gigi, and for her whole family. Yolanda Foster, Hadid’s mother, posted a childhood picture of Gigi with her sister Bella on Instagram, saying, “You are in this together since day one…” She tagged her two daughters, and ended the post with #MyBabyAngels, and this ambiguity has us reeling. Gigi and Bella Hadid may be sharing the huge anniversary stage on December 8, alongside the beloved VS angels, such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Behati Prinsloo, and Lily Aldridge, as well as the 10 new Angels that were added to the roster for the upcoming show.

Gigi Hadid is a true role model for girls and women everywhere. When she was initially rejected by Victoria’s Secret in last year’s casting, she was upset, but took that motivation to continue hitting the gym and really boosted her self-esteem. This makes her casting even more monumental, since she came from rejection, pushed herself even harder, and has now made it to where she’s always dreamed of being. I think we can all stand to have a bit of this mentality in our lives. And to Gigi Hadid – We’ll see you on the runway!
