Denni Elias blog (Chicmuse) is aptly named, as she consistently inspires me to expand my style horizons. There’s a little superhero vibe to her look today that I am totally digging. There’s so much fun texture and pop prints, but it still feels refined in a youthful way. Those d’Orsay stilettos, however, are the scene-stealer for me. But, then again, I’m a shoe girl and can’t say no to a cool design.

The lovely Italian blogger Gilda Koral Flora (Thank God It’s Friday) has been featured on our blog before, so I obviously had to style-stalk her again! Gilda’s fabulous mixed-print look speaks to both the modern picnic and global themes we’ve been tracking this season. A relaxed button-up and a slim pencil skirt are the ultimate in Italian style. Chic d’Orsay pumps and a kitschy-cool clutch cap off the look.

I know I’ve already raved about stripes a dozen times, but they’re just the most versatile pattern ever! Nausheen’s bold, body-con pencil skirt and knotted silk blouse combo is yet another excellent example of casual urban femme.

As a stylist, Nausheen Shah is always thinking ahead, but keeps her roots in the classics. I wish I could have Nausheen style my outfits everyday!

Blogger extraordinaire, Garance Doré, has that special je ne sais quoi quality that makes French women so effortlessly chic. Despite her fashion world celebrity, Garance is so sweet and calm. This tranquility is represented in her style, which is understated and yet unique.

Garance’s gold miniskirt garnered a ton of attention this morning, and I love how she’s toned it down with a loose cashmere sweater. We love you, Garance!

This denim-clad duo understands the power of coordination. I love spotting friends whose styles fit effortlessly together. Kate and Lynsey (Tomboy KC) look casual and cool. There are hints of menswear themes, but they add a bit of modern sex appeal with sky-high stilettos and distressed denim. I think I’ll be copying both of these looks in the near future!

Sub-freezing temps didn’t stop this pretty pair from rocking their favorite dresses at Fashion Week. I love catching friends on their way to the shows. One of the best parts of FW is catching up with your besties!

Erika and Ria said they were having a blast and loved the excuse to get dressed up. They both look gorgeous, while showcasing their own personal styles. Thanks, ladies!

Manolo Blahnik Spring/Summer 2014

“Shoes,” says Manolo Blahnik, “help transform a woman.”

Born in the Canary Islands, Blahnik began making shoes in London in 1971, and this year, for the first time in his illustrious career, he’s elected to hold a spot on the official London Fashion Week calendar. Blahnik hosted an intimate presentation at the Covent Garden Hotel right in the heart of the theater district, which was fitting, as the designer made his LFW debut via his first fashion film, directed by Michael Roberts and starring actor Rupert Everett and socialite Lucy Birley.

Vivid colors and floral and African motifs defined the look for spring ’14.

HERO

Last week, actress Sarah Jessica Parker celebrated two milestones: the 15th anniversary of the debut of Sex and the City and the announcement of the launch of her namesake label SJP, which will be carried exclusively by Nordstrom in early 2014.

As one might imagine, news like this set the fashion world ablaze with excitement and intrigue, as well as eliciting the obvious sigh of relief, as this is a venture that fans of her label-loving character Carrie Bradshaw have been long waiting for. Who can forget Carrie’s enthusiastic appreciation for high-end footwear, especially Manolo Blahnik? For many shoe-obsessed women, the on-camera romance between Carrie and her many pairs of Manolos was just as fascinating as her relationship with Big. And despite the popular TV show coming to an end in February of 2004, the real-life narrative between Sarah Jessica and Manolo appears to be just beginning. The style icon is designing her collection of shoes, handbags and trench coats in association with George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA.

Now that the news of this highly anticipated collection has finally broken, The Thread phoned Parker to get straight to the sole of the matter—the exquisite details of her latest fête in fashion.

A Polished Pair: Malkemus tapped Parker for a shoe collaboration with Manolo Blahnik in 2011 on a reinvention of the coveted ‘Carolyne’ style.
