Timberland EathKeeper Boots

I wanted to share with you a great new find. Heritage brand Timberland has introduced a new collection of boots this year that are really stylish called EarthKeepers. The EarthKeeper collection are partly made with recycled materials but you wouldn't know if from the looks of them. Finding boots that are well made and will last a long time for a reasonable price (under $200) is challenging these days. Timberland has been making craftsman style boots since the 1950s. My favorite design aspect of these styles by Timberland is the mixing of leather and suede. I have a pair of the EarthKeepers Bethel Buckle Tall Zip Boot in Bitter Chocolate and I love them. The reddish brown is a really unique color and they are so comfortable and sturdy. Check out more of the Timberland EarthKeeper collection here. And the best part is Lucky Magazine and Timberland have offered Fashion Plate readers $20 off their purchase. Shown: Madison Heights Tall Boot $190, Cabot Pull On Tall Boot $200, Bethel Buckle Tall Boot $190, Cabot Biker Boot $140.

Tory Burch Spring 2011 Collection

Here are some photos I took at last weeks Tory Burch fashion presentation. The girls all looked lovely in their 70's inspired looks. Some of my favorite things from the show were the high waisted skirts and the bright pops of orange. Overall the styles were really pretty, flirty and feminine. Lots of pieces on my shopping list for Spring!

Opening Ceremony and Pendelton

For Fashions Night Out last night I attended the Opening Ceremony's French flea market at the Ace Hotel. The real stand out of the evening for me was the Opening Ceremony Pendelton collaboration collection. Opening Ceremony brilliantly transformed the signature patterns and prints of Pendelton into high fashion pieces.

Minx Nail Decals

I have been seeing the most amazing nail jobs lately in New York. Yesterday I saw a girl on the corner and each of her fingernails was painted a different shade of pink. And today at the pharmacy my cashier had the most amazing mint green nails and one nail on each hand had an intricate black and white pattern. I started to think am I going to the wrong salon? I did some research and found out that these crazy patterns are most likely Minx nail decals. They can only be applied by a certified salon which you can find on their website. Sephora also launched Chic Print for Nails which come in several fun dyi patterns $15.

Rope Jewelry

Lately I have been noticing all sorts of cool jewelry made out of rope. While rope on it's own would make a somewhat unexceptional piece, pair it with gold or silver, and interesting stones and viola some amazingly unique pieces.

Product Review: Havaianas

I first fell in love with Havaianas a few years ago when I was traveling in Brazil. I don't think I took them off for the entire trip. Havaianas Brazilian flip flops were originally made in 1962 (who knew they were so old!) and originally came in 8 colors. Nowdays there are upwards of 20 different styles and a ton of different colors. Some of my favorites shown here are the Havaianas Slim, Fun, Surf Girl, Fit, and Top Mix. I recently had the opportunity to try the Fit, which has an extra wrap around ankle strap and looks even more like a sandal. The matte gold is perfect for beach to dinner occasions like the Hamptons, where I will be wearing them this weekend. And you never have to worry about getting any blisters with Havaianas. I can literally walk in them for hours with no discomfort. Havaianas also has some of the most creative ad campaigns around. For more styles of Havaianas womens sandals visit their website.

Snoozer Looser Fall Preview

I just received the look book for the Snoozer Looser Fall / Winter line and had to share it with you guys. I have posted about New York designer Snoozer Looser in the past and I am really excited about her new collection. I love the mixing and matching of these funky prints and the styling is so great. The knee socks and brightly colored tights are perfect accents.

Product Review: Aveeno Positively Nourishing

I have recently had the opportunity to try the Positively Nourishing Hydrating body wash and Whipped Souffle by Aveeno. The products are infused with shea butter so that they are ultra nourishing and leave your skin soft and refreshed. I barely needed to use lotion after using the shower gel, unlike harsh soaps which can strip my skin of moisture. And after spending all week on my beach vacation to Cape Cod last week, these products were the perfect trick for restoring my skin.

Dominic Jones Jewelry

I recently came across this bold line of animalistic jewelry by designer Dominic Jones. I love the predatory aspect to these pieces and yet the gold makes them look chic and glamorous. They would be so fun to wear!

Alice + Olivia for MAC Cosmetics

MAC Cosmetics has recently released it's latest designer collaboration with this new line by Alice + Olivia. I love all of the funky colors and the retro (80's) glam packaging. These pops of color will be really great for fall and can be used in a small dose during the day or in a heavier application for a more bold look during the evening.
