In the 1950s, Picnic was the sexiest movie anyone had ever seen. In Dirty Dancing, Baby and Johnny practiced their moves in a wooded knoll. Even Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler got in on the action in Armageddon (remember the animal crackers on her belly scene?). Picnics have long been one of the most romantically fab ways to spend a spring day, so we’ve stored up all that cinematic inspiration and served you a recipe for the perfect outing.
No one can argue with the fact that New York is one of the world’s biggest foodie cities, and some of the most recognizable names in gastronomy come here to set up shop. So we’ve done a roundup of NYC’s coolest restaurants, run by some amazing chefs, and paired it with the perfect outfits to wear to each spot (though we can’t promise they’ll hide that inevitable food baby). Happy eating!
With summer approaching, you’re no doubt ready to bust out your tiniest duds and hit the town. We’ve teamed up with Yummie Tummie to give away five $100 gift cards so you can stock up slimming tanks, slips, and more. Best of all, the pieces are super light, as well as smoothing.
I am very low-maintenance and very cheap when it comes to my hair — with the exception of one embarrassingly recent attempt to dye a section of it blue (the dye was from Ricky’s and it washed out immediately), I’ve never had my hair dyed or highlighted, and I’ve been getting haircuts from students at the Carsten Aveda Institute since I was twelve. I am definitely not the type to do anything drastic to the hairs on my head, so when Styleite offered me the chance to try nuNAAT’s at-home keratin treatment, I was intrigued and a little nervous.
Bummed that summer’s over? Fear not! Fall rules, and we’ve teamed up with Havaianas to make sure you ease into autumn in style.
From the world’s oldest shoe to the very first pair of stiletto heels, we present the most important shoes in footwear history.
We here at Styleite really love shoes, but we’re embarrassed to admit our footwear vocabulary is lacking. Sure, we know all the normal to mid-level stuff (like what a wingtip is and what crepe soles entail), but there is so much more to learn! Allow us to school you on 10 important shoe-related terms, with a little help from Nine West.
New York may be our hometown, but there’s no place like Paris. And Sophie Theallet agrees: the French designer looked as much to Paris as she did to New York when it came to designing her collection for Nine West. Luckily, one of us just got back from a week long sojourn in the City of Lights, where we drank in every last drop of inspiration it had to offer and are now ready to share that with you. Guide books are great but a personal recommendation is even better. Check out our list of the must-see, must-do, and must-eat places in Paris.
Yes, shoes are great and all, but they’re nothing without bags. Well, it’s an apples and oranges comparison, really, but you get what we’re trying to say: Bags are really important parts of our wardrobes, so Sophie Theallet was sure to make some really great purses to go along with the shoes she created for Nine West.
Sophie Theallet‘s collection of shoes and bags for Nine West inspired us to seek out the very best in people who write about shoes online, and we think we’ve found the five best of the bunch. Take a look at our favorite shoe blogs, below.
Sophie Theallet‘s collection for Nine West is about more than just shoes and bags — there’s also jewelry! The gold and pink charm bracelet she designed is not only cute, the charms hold significance, too. Her initials are on there, as is a miniature Eiffel Tower to signal her love for Paris.
For us, summer is all about ease, and one of the great things about Sophie Theallet‘s collection for Nine West is that all of its elements are easy to wear — to say nothing of the fact that that mixes in with things we already wear. For a trip to the beach or a casual [...]
Though Sophie Theallet started her career in Paris, she now calls New York City home. She loves New York, but can you blame her for missing the French capital every once in a while? We happen to be Francophiles here at New York-based Styleite, so we have a few tips about how to experience a little bit of the City of Light in the Big Apple.
Sophie Theallet moved to Paris as a student when she was 18, and she was instantly taken with the city. It was there she received her first big fashion break, landing a gig with Jean Paul Gaultier. She later worked for Alaïa in Paris before landing in New York.
It would be a tough call, really, if we were ever faced with having to decide between living in Paris or New York City, but Sophie Theallet doesn’t have that problem. The French-born, New York-based designer gets to live between the City of Lights and the Big Apple — but when she’s in New York, Theallet stays in Brooklyn.
For sheer convenience and chic, nothing beats a great ballerina slipper. But so often, they can be pretty basic, and even boring. Fortunately, that’s not the case with the Pila, the soft, bow-topped flat Sophie Theallet designed for her collaboration with Nine West. It’s bright vivd color and simple design make it an easy addition to nearly any wardrobe, and the perfect pick-me-up to an otherwise basic outfit. We don’t think a flat has ever looked so fun.
If you live in New York and you live French style, you won’t want to miss this event. Elle magazine and Sophie Theallet are throwing a little soiree to fete the the limited-edition collection of shoes and bags the designer put together for Nine West.
We here at Styleite are pretty proud to live in New York City, one half of the inspiration behind Sophie Theallet‘s collection for Nine West. But if you’ve never been here before, there are a few places you simply must go — and a few things you simply must do — in order to get the full experience of the city. We’ve put together a handy little map of our town to help you understand Theallet’s inspiration — and maybe even get a little inspired yourself.
What do you do when you want to wear heels, but also want to be able to walk? Add a platform and an ankle strap, and make sure your heel is chunky! Sophie Theallet‘s Tinna espadrilles sandals for Nine West give you quite a boost — five inches worth! — while making sure you don’t topple over. And did we mention how cute they are? A bow and fray-detailing in a great print make these a must.
One of the coolest things about Sophie Theallet‘s collection for Nine West is how seamlessly its pieces can work into the wardrobe you already have. Case in point: the Emma Satchel in black woven straw has a classic shape and a really summery feel — so you could wear it with almost anything when the weather heats up.
