Yes! I love Saks and I just can’t help it that they throw amazing events that I love going to and darned if they didn’t throw another one recently; a contemporary Spring trunk show that involved clothing and – joy of joys – shoes! If you know me you know how I am about shoes and they had some new ones there that have not been to the Columbus Saks before. Brands like Ash, Alice & Olivia, Joie and more. There were the wonderful guys serving the chardonnay along with the nummy appetizers but my focus was strictly on the shoes and clothing.
Ok, sure I took a detour at some of the Louboutin shoes (a girl can dream can’t she?) but there were some gorgeous shoes from the trunk show that had me ready to bust out the plastic and go for it. I never thought I’d be one for wedge sneakers but the Ash ones they had there might just change my mind; casual but with style. It was also great to see that the shoes came in heel heights from flats and flat sandals to oh my high! The Spring trend of brighter colors (Spring will you please get here – stat!) was very much on display with the shoes and clothing. I was happy to see that peplums and cropped jackets are still with us along with leather for warmer weather.
The event was hosted by local news person, Yolanda Harris, who did a bang up job working the crowd and Saks gave away gift cards in a raffle. Five happy winners disappeared later into the beauty department which was hopping with their beauty week event. It was a fun and busy day but let’s look at those shoes and fashions shall we?
