Dekkori Shoe Accessories

Boots or sparkles? Slouchy or straight? ..Too many choices!!

What if you could buy one pair of basic pumps and turn them into ten different styles of sophisticated, high fashion heels?  Better yet, what if you didn’t have to provide excuses for your designer heels and torture your feet with expensive fancy footwear?  How many times have we all said “Oh its just the price we pay too look good (ouch ouch ouch!)”

With Dekkori, we no longer have to trade those beautifully chic shoes for a miserable night of painful blistered agony.. and we no longer have to break the bank for that high-end designer pump.  Dekkori shoe accessories allow you to keep that favorite comfortable pair of pumps by giving you the ability to transform them into show stopping, head-turning heels.

Simply slip the accessory over and around your ankle & securely snap it around the sole of your foot.  In seconds you can effortlessly turn that old pair of sandals or pumps into an amazing pair of slouchy leather boots or stylish and funky heels embellished in bows and crystals.

Some of my favorites are the “Charisma Pull On Boot” in Metallic Copper Leather and the “Innocence Bow” in Black Satin.

‘Infectious’ Laptop and Iphone Skins

Check out this awesome new company I was recently introduced to by my brother! Its called Infectious and it makes and sells stickers, also referred to as skins, designed by an online community of artists. The artists first submit their designs. Then it’s up to the public to decide what they think is hot! After the public votes for the coolest new designs, the artists with the most votes get to watch their skin designs created into actual products for ipods, iphones, laptops, cars and skateboards! Pretty cool huh?!

Its a great way to add a little personality to some of your most valuable gizmos and gadgets.. and why not express yourself?! In addition, the products are relatively cheap and come in tons of different styles. It’s fun to browse through the different artists’ designs just to see how talented some of these people really are!

I’m stuck deciding between the following 3 laptop skins to get for myself. I love the fun fantasy land of the 1st skin but I’m also drawn to the cool anime look of the 3rd. I’m thinking the 2nd option is my best bet as it incorporates a little of both: we get the girly pink of the 1st one mixed with the weird little pac man face of the 3rd!
Thoughts & suggestions??

Taking a break from the excitement of Fashion Week Spring 2010, I had to share with you this amazing new trend that a close family friend, Roz, shared with me after her recent trip to Martha’s Vineyard! Apparently ‘Frog Fashion’ is becoming quite the new thing! Check out some of the fun signs she found while on her weekend adventure.

Having a little fun and feeding into my curiosity, I decided to search the extensive market of frog inspired fashion! Adidas certainly took full advantage of this trend when designing an amazing pair of Kermit the Frog sneaks and apparel!

In an effort to stimulate the economy and encourage retail sales, Anna Wintour came up with the idea for Fahion’s Night Out. The event occurred last night, September 10, and helped kick off NYC Fashion Week with a bang! Stores stayed open till midnight throwing lavish parties with the hottest dj’s. In addition, designers and celebrities were stationed around the city to welcome the public and encourage shoppers!

Vera Wang offered bridal shoppers special treatment with manicures and champagne while Roberto Cavalli threw a giant party with music blasting throughout the store creating quite the scene!

Throughout the past few months, emerging designers and small boutiques have found themselves struggling and having to ultimately close their doors. With retails sales having dropped way down, designers are looking for new strategies to raise sales and make money! Thankfully for them, Fashion’s Night Out was a huge success with large amounts of publicity and tons of media coverage!

Please check out Zac Posen donning a golden tiara and his adorable mother Susan pictured above as they help celebrate the success of last night!

Fashion’s Night Out!!

Its finally here.. Fashion’s Night Out!

“In a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion, U.S. and international editions of Vogue are coordinating evening extravaganzas in their respective world fashion capitals.”

If you are in NYC, I hope you are taking advantage of Fashion’s Night Out, visiting all of the fancy shops in the Meatpacking and Madison Ave, and chatting with all of the famous designers, models, and celebrities located around the city in support of this wonderful shopping event!
