GOSSIP GIRL BFF & NY handbag designer MICHELLE VALE is launching the shoe every woman is pining for this summer. SOAK was founded in 2014 with former Fashion Editor ELENA CORSANO to create a stylish alternative for what-to-slip-on when the stilettos slide off!
SOAKs are perfectly practical. They’ll get you to yoga and out for brunch in comfort and style while chic enough to work in, paired with a pencil skirt, a blouse and blazer. They’re sleek and innovative slides, created with custom technology, actual arch support for work/play footwear featuring eco-friendly comfort, and non-ironic vegan style! Designed here in New York City and crafted in Kennebunk, Maine, SOAK sandals are leading the way for SOAK rain boots, flats, eyewear and more — for the best of both worlds.
GIVE SOAK A KICK! Get a pair of SOAK sandals from the very first production run and receive them — in the color selection of your choice — along with a durable carry pouch! The SOAK KICKSTART CAMPAIGN is in the home stretch so you’ll have to be quick! With a week to go they’ve gathered $20,000 and parted with 300 pairs already — just to show you how much the ladies are loving them!

Claire Coghlan asked for my thoughts on the legacy left behind by the tragic loss of these two true red carpet fahion and style stars. In remembering Oscar De La Renta and L’Wren Scott we pay tribute to their amazing talents and honor their contributions to the magic of fashion on the red carpet. The online piece (see Variety.com) is a longer version of the print story (above).
China’s number one fashion, beauty and lifestyle TV program, Queen (我是大美人) came to visit me in NYC! My friend Bianca Bai, a Chinese supermodel, and I had afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel (yes, of Gatsby fame) in Manhattan. I gave her style tips for how to master the “Upper East Side IT Girl Look” she’s just crazy about.
To see how I styled Bianca Bai in some of my favorite designers for a fashionable day of New York City shopping, and more looks inspired by Blair Waldorf and Serena van Der Woodsen from 我是大美人.
