Carmen Steffens Preview

On Amanda's last day in NYC, the three of us (Kim, Amanda and I) headed to the Carmen Steffens preview at the Waldorf Astoria, followed by a farewell lunch at the SoHo Grand. We spent her last day in two different odd!

Our gracious hosts (shown above) gave us a peek at some of their new shoes and bags, which are all hand-crafted and made in extremely limited runs (though the line is extensive). They are expanding to more US stores but are currently an international brand, based out of Brazil. While I'm sure they'll find success wherever they go, since exclusivity is a major perk in fashion, I can especially see them thriving in Miami. My personal favorites were the more understated nude platform pumps, but Mariah Carey favors the last pair (which are called the Mariah), which were made for one of her videos. They are very Mariah, aren't they?

A big thank you to the lovely people at Carmen Steffens for their hospitality (and delicious chocolates and pomegranate black pepper juice). We look forward to seeing more in the states!

Love love,

  1. ahhhhh awesome heels!!

  2. i like her outfit! very cute!

  3. AH, that commercial! I work at a movie and they legit play it a few times every hour. Though everyone else complains I watched it through one time and fell in love.

    It's just so random that you brought it up.

    Also, those shoes are very Mariah (current not nineties) and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

  4. The nude color shoes looks exactly like the ones Jessica Simpson wore on Oprah today =] very pretty! =] The last pair is very Mariah with all the glitter and glam :)

  5. aahh!! i need those nude pumps!!! :D

  7. I'm Brazilian and those shoes really are amazing! Very expensive here, though ;)
