Fall marches on! The new season has been here for a few weeks already, sure, but for the sartorially inclined, the shift is about more than just lower temps or fewer hours of daylight—it’s about watching the parade-like stream of new arrivals.
Here comes a lovely example right now: a set of ink-hued, just-released styles from SJP Collection.
(L to R): Florence crossbody, Beekman clutch, Blythe T-strap pump, Daphne pump, New Yorker hobo and Crosstown crossbody.
The latest shoes and bags from the fashion-loving mind of Sarah Jessica Parker continue the classic-meets-sexy vibe we’ve already grown to love from the nascent label—now refreshed with new details like mirrored metallic finishes or saturated colors, like indigo and cobalt blue.
Keep reading to get your eyes on some of SJP’s top picks from the new collection, plus a little outfit inspiration, courtesy of the actress/designer’s recent whistle-stop tour of select Nordstrom stores.
The Brother Vellies springbok boots pictured above—part of our TMRW TGTHR Pop-In Shop—represent not one, but multiple acts of good karma. They create solid jobs for the skilled artisans who handcraft them in South Africa. They offer additional income for farmers providing the hides. They put materials to good use that would otherwise go to waste. They provide a consumer like you with high-quality footwear that will last for years. And, perhaps most importantly, they share a cross-continental story about people’s lives and cultures, which might otherwise go untold.
Keep reading to see more photos that Brother Vellies founder Aurora James (along with her stylish friends and their adorable offspring) shot just for us—and to hear Aurora’s thoughts on growing up in Canada, listening to your mother and the evolving definition of what it means to help people in need.

We invited a handful of our favorite NYC Instagrammers to collaborate with us on our fall trend accessories and shoes campaign. They joined us at an Instameet-style shoot in the Big Apple because, party! We filled the studio with next season’s shoes, handbags, jewelry and hosiery, and let them do what they do best. It was a photo shoot match made in heaven, and we’re in love with the results. It’s a little bit of catalog and little bit of Instagram. We’re calling it Instalog! Here’s our partnership lineup:

Saturday night we partied at the Brooklyn Museum to help kick off its newest exhibition, Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe. From the mid-seventeenth century to the modern day, the exhibit features some of the most want-worthy shoes ever created—like Marilyn Monroe’s Ferragamo stilettos and Lady Gaga’s 8-inch platform booties.
Check out a few of our snaps from the launch party. Killer Heels will be on display Sep 10–Feb 15 at the Brooklyn Museum.
We’ve hit summer’s halfway mark. That means your feet are (and have been) on constant display to the world and the elements. It’s still prime time for backyard barbecues, tubing trips, stoopside soirees and every other sandal sitch you can imagine. If the thought of open sandals makes your toes curl (in a “hide me now” kind of way), it’s time to crank up the TLC on those sore, tired puppies and give them some much-deserved love. They are, after all, the hardest-working two feet you’ll ever run around town on.
To get the lowdown on best at-home footcare practices, we enlisted the expertise of nail therapist Hoai Le, a five-year veteran at Spa Nordstrom here in Seattle. Although he recommends seeing a professional pedicurist for trickier tasks like cuticle trimmings, a regular at-home regimen should keep your feet clean, smooth and, above all, healthy.

Announcing the arrival of Acne Studios: edgy, iconic shoes that are the footwear equivalent of a designer motorcycle jacket. Throw them on with any outfit for an instant infusion of streetwise cool.
Founded in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1996, Acne (Ambition to Create Novel Expressions) Studios began as a cult denim brand. The label quickly gained notoriety with the help of inspiring runway collections—Acne shoes have been spotted adorning the feet of It Girls and MODs (Models Off Duty) everywhere. Check out the Acne Studios collection, and let your inner MOD out to play.
An established favorite of the street-style set, the iconic ‘Rockstud’ Pump is a highly coveted shoe. Now, Valentino has upped the ante with six brilliant new hues. From supersonic red to electric violet, these high-energy shades are a gorgeous new take on modern glamour with an edge.
