Inspired by Hermes: White Window Shopping

September 8, 2011

I was wandering through the streets of Melbourne last weekend, enjoying the (rare) sunshine. Then I noticed the rather lovely – and oh so white – window display at Hermes.

As I have a mortgage, I can only dream of high end designer fashion at full price…but that doesn’t mean I can’t window shop!

I thought I’d check out if the celebs have been spotted in shades of white – and found a few hot ladies rocking the white look on the red carpet earlier this year…Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman & Lea Michele.

So the swathe of white has inspired this article. I’ve pulled out some lovely white shoes to tempt you….just as Spring arrives at our door step. The shoes are, of course, at a fraction of an Hermes price tag! All shoes at ShopNewYork.com.au are 20% off, all the time.

Shoes of wow: For the Gaga-esk lady who loves attention!

September 8, 2011

Wall flowers beware – this article we’re profiling shoes in store at ShopNewYork.com.au for the lady that isn’t afraid of a little attention.

After all, if you’re the sort of lady that enjoys being admired, in the words of the fabulous Oscar Wilde:

“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”.

One lass that has perfected the art of being looked at is, of course, Lady Gaga. You never quite know what she’s going to show up in next! She’d probably find some of our WOW shoes positively sedate, but as we aren’t all queens of pop, the following lovely shoes from ShopNewYork.com.au are probably just wild enough!

Style Guide: How to wear animal print

September 1, 2011

With animal prints featuring strongly in this season’s Spring/Summer fashion, you may be pondering how to include the look in an outfit. Too much animal print can be disaster, bringing to mind visions of Peggy Bundy in ‘Married with Children’! But worn well, usually as an accent piece, animal print can add a tinge of sizzle to day or night.

Some tips for wearing animal print in Spring/Summer…

– Stick with light weight fabrics – like cotton or linen – to contrast with the “heaviness” of an animal print.
– Experiment with animal print by wearing it in accessories: Hair pieces, bags, shoes or jewellery.
– Keep a simple colour palette (1-2 shades at most). Wearing too many colors and patterns with animal print is just too busy.
– Wear with confidence! Animal print makes a statement, don’t wear with fear!

Four looks…

We’ve paired some of our popular (and cheap) shoes from ShopNewYork.com.au with a selection of jeans, pants and dresses below to provide some guidance on how to wear some of our currentĀ animal print shoes, with style.

If you like the featured shoe, simply click on the image and it’s will take you to it in ShopNewYork.com.au. All the clothes are from Australian online stores too. Hope you find some footwear and fashion inspiration!

Hear me roar…animal prints

August 15, 2011

Another big trend tipped this season is animal prints; although for my money, these never really go out of style.

I’m not talking the whole enchilada, but worn as a feature garment or accessory, and this bold look will always ensure you’re looking stylish and ahead of the sometimes tired-and-dull fashion flock. This trend appeared across the Spring/ Summer 2011 runway shows, from designers including Louis Vuitton, Burberry, and Miu Miu. So tap into your wild child and add some animal print to your spring and summer wardrobe.

ShopNewYork.com.au is featuring some animal print heels worth a “roar” of applause.
