Much Ado About Shoes: Fashion's Night Out and Omelle's NY Launch

One Moment in Time

We'd like to take a brief moment of reflection in memory of all those lost on September 11th, 2001 and in honor of those they left behind. It was one of those days around which we gauge other memories, and we can all remember where we were and what we were doing when the attacks took place. Please take a little time today to be thankful for your life and for those you love. As that day reminded us, it can all be snatched away in an instant.


Last night, Vogue, the CFDA and NYC & Company united with New York designers and retailers in an attempt to reignite shoppers' thirst for fashion. Fashion's Night Out was a city-wide celebration of all that's fun, fabulous and even frivolous about retail therapy. (Some stores even sold limited edition T-shirts to benefit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.) The Shoes & Booze crew was out & about swilling bubbly and swooning over all the chicness. (Those jelly beans at Prada were top-notch!)

The highlight of our night came at Debut NY, where Omelle made its New York debut. Effortless chic and innovative heel design have placed the brand among our favorites, so we were giddy at the chance to meet Cherise Angelle, one of the ladies behind the magic. She's pictured here with Hardy (our fave of the season) and a couple of other styles. (We also heard talk of Pat Field pulling a pair for SATC 2!) Look forward to seeing more Omelle shoes paired with drinks VERY soon.
