What would you rather be outrageous and spontaneous or simple and predictable? Maybe we’re taking it to the extremes but when it comes to how you live for life shouldn’t we take it seriously and to the extreme? Being predictable will never take us anywhere. That’s why projecting oneself across the mirror is so important. You can see your own reflection and if you look into depth you can kinda figure out what others see. More than that (obviously) you can see the amazing shoes your wearing (duh!) and then you can really walk with confidence without depending on being simple or amazing.
Jeffrey Campbell is known for his intense designs that go to radical terms and make you look twice. They are not for everyone but if you have good taste and know what it is to have some fun you will at least fall in love with one of the designs even if you don’t dare walk in them. Even when they mostly include sky-high platforms and heels this collection there’s something for everyone. We have platforms, open boots, flats and even some delicate heels.
With spring coming to an end and summer just across the street we may think about bright colors but not necessarily. This collection is full of earth hues that will compliment any outfit from colorful to white to even dark tones. This makes it even better since you will obtain a pair that you can wear all year long even though they have a fresh look that calls for summer you can play with the look and make them turn all around.
Reality is I like risks and statement pieces that maybe not everyone will wear but most definitely they can acknowledge them and appreciate them. The real questions to all fashion lovers are: Do you dare? Can you handle it? Are you simple or are you a risk taker?

When it comes to festivals what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? For me there are two key elements: music obviously but more than that is the fashion. The one you see and the one you see yourself in. Its no wonder that a line like Lacoste was present at the Coachella music festival last week. Let’s just say it was the perfect combination of music, fashion and of course in sunny California a pool couldn’t be missing from the picture.
With celebrity guest including Katy Perry, Joe and Nick Jonas, Rita Ora, Alessandra Ambrosio among other superstars the party was more than rocking plus they had special DJ guest appearances by Elijah Wood, Alexa Chung and DJ Mom Jeans. Who wouldn’t wanna party like that? Lately Lacoste has been appealing to a younger crowd and let me tell you it must be really working because to have a group like that together your either cool or up and coming.
To all us girly girls they had a mani and pedi station with colors provided by Essie. Who doesn’t want to chill with hot Californian guys while getting your nails done and then finish off with a drink beside a humongous pool? I would’ve been the first in line. Coachella was the place to be last week. What about you guys? Were you able to attend? Are you planning to go next year? I can assure you one thing, I missed it this year but Coachella’s 2014 crowds will include myself.
Lately I’ve been watching what celebrities and runways have been sporting in terms of dress shoes for women. Seeing it coming isn’t the same as having it here already, vinyl is so back! From Christian Louboutin to Chanel they are all integrating themselves into this trend. The biggest names in show business are wearing them. What are we waiting for?
Dress shoes needed something fresh, different and a little hint that would make them look sort of funky in a classic way. Single sole shoes for me are the definition of sexy but they are still very classic and don’t really have a wow factor. Now if you mix textures and add a little vinyl here and there you have a match made in heaven.
The great thing about this trend is that you can carry it with anything and you will look fabulous. For example if you want to go a little lighter you can wear skinny jeans with a basic whit t-shirt and accessorize it with a bold oversize necklace that goes with the shoes. If we want to try a more elegant look a button down shirt with a peplum knee high skirt and a really big bun will strive you to perfection.
The best part about this trend is that since its vinyl if you choose a neutral color that’s mixed with it can go with any color you want it too from pastels to dark hues. Furthermore, a big plus to the equation you will most definitely remember your 90’s days and think twice next time you want to throw away all fads that “won’t come back ever again”.
Who doesn’t go back to the basics every once in a while? It’s good to take risks and be daring to the unknown but ohh how good it feels to be acquainted with the recognizable. Class is something you cannot buy but what you can buy is the classic look to start off your journey. Men have always had a classic feel to anything they wear. What they don’t know is how much we love that old glamour from old movies in which they played the savior and looked so handsome while doing it.
Finally someone heard our prayers and with a little twist has been bringing sexy back into our gentlemen’s closets. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love how our guys dress and the looks they can achieve with new styles and looks but this just screams Mamma Mia!!
I introduce to you the wingtip shoe. Yeah the same one that your grandpa wore with his khaki pants. Guys just picture you with a sleek fitted pant and these amazing classic shoes. Now imagine yourself with some shorts, a cardigan and the same shoes, isn’t it amazing? It gives your formal look a fashionable taste and your more casual self a twist and funky tone that will get the girls and the boys turning heads.
For those who like to add your own style into every trend and want to add certain youth to the classic we got your solution. There are also styles with bright colored soles that you can combine with your laces and only if you know what your doing even with your socks!
Are you ready to start mixing the old with the new?

In the middle of spring we look for freshness. We’ve changed our wardrobe already and the heavy accessories must be replaced by something a little bit more lightweight. When I talk about ‘light’ I don’t mean in any way that the piece could not be bold and big. With nature being a big part of spring why don’t we incorporate it into our everyday wear and give every outfit a nice fresh touch this spring season.
Personally I love big pieces that can make a statement and will be memorable. I love dressing up but a necklace or a couple of bangles can make an outfit. For this season I recommend you reach within yourself and reflect your fashion sense on nature.
Wood has started to become a great material for accessorizing that looks fashionable, distinct and raises consciousness. Mixed with the beautiful color gold and materials like rope it would be the perfect accessory. The beautiful fashion accessory line Hebe Sophia has presented its spring 2013 collection in which wood is the main character in each piece. With a bohemian look and geometric designs there is no way you can pass the chance of owning one of its pieces in your closet.
Lacoste does know how to get down. Celebrities from Ian Somerhalder to Hayden Panettiere got together at the Elms Mansion in New Orleans to celebrate the Super Bowl on February 2nd. The bash entertained its guest with music by Lil’ Wayne.
The elite mansion was full of Lacoste stations for the guest to see their new merchandise. Everyone enjoyed themselves and goofed around all night. The occasion was perfect for Lacoste to take the leadership and cater to the young celebrities that the public acclaims so much. This is a great way to get through that young market.
Personally who wouldn’t want to be part of the Lacoste world now? If that means hanging around Chace Crawford and Hunger Games Josh Hutcherson I wouldn’t think twice.

Winter is coming to an end and we cannot wait for the summer but before it gets here we have a whole season in between to welcome: SPRING! Time to store all those dark hues and long sleeves. When we come to think of it spring brings us comfort in our wardrobe. We feel free and liberated to show some skin and get rid of the boots. But don’t worry we already have the perfect trend figured out for you to rock this new season.
Very few times a tendency is so strong that it translates to women and men as a whole. A shoe can either make or break an outfit. We tend to think that the fancier the shoe the fashionable the outfit. Let me tell you this is a complete myth. You can totally wear comfy, trendy shoes and at times look even better than when you have high sky stilettos on.
Canvas is a must when you think about the resort/spring season. Now it makes it’s way to your feet. Canvas shoes have been ‘in’ for a while now with known brands stating how simple a shoe can be and the impact it can still make. They go with anything for anywhere. You won’t want to take them off.
Now are you ready to look trendy and feel good about it? We give you a couple of looks so you know how to carry this trend correctly. If you don’t wear it believe me everyone else will be doing so.

We just received the best news, apparently the spikes are going no where, and you know what? We are LOVING it! Spring/Summer 2013 it’s coming strong with the spike trend. One of our favorites brands Jeffrey Campbell is launching a new concept: jelly and spikes. Sounds interesting right? Well, it’s actually pretty amazing since not only its coming in a variety of colors but also it’s a flat sandal, YES! Trendy and comfortable? We are so in!
We (the fashion savvy crowd) live constantly awaiting what will be the next trend or which one will be next season’s key item. Well let me tell you it’s already here because if this shoe style doesn’t cut it I don’t know what will. We identify the spring / summer season as a fresh and lightweight season in which we can look fabulous while feeling comfortable. Let’s just say that Jeffrey hit us right on the spot with this one. Every detail of the item screams fashion.
Spikes are not something everyone is daring to wear. You have to possess confidence and the will to take a chance that probably most of the people wouldn’t. This is what makes a season’s key item: uniqueness. This item is the one that everyone wants but not everyone can pull it off. You need to be a complete fashionista & have that “je ne sais quoi” that we all look for.

Every year twice a year every woman’s fantasy comes her way: fashion week. It is celebrated all around the world with cities playing the main character of these stories that develop new trends. During the month of September it was show time all over the place. Different trends were revealed as the spring 2013 collections covered the different catwalks with a fresh air in between them.
In Puerto Rico High Fashion Week was celebrated with multiple designers pitching in to participate on the event. From young to recognized designers the collections were filled with originality and detail. To close this magnificent event The Blonds showed they’re risky, sexy and va va voom collection only the way they could.
With different trends and looks I am so looking forward to spring or maybe I don’t have to, after all I live on a tropical island which means I can wear shorts whenever I want (YES!). Of course the shoes are a big part of an ensemble; they can either make it or break it. We saw a lot of platform shoes combined with shorts and cool colors that scream spring but don’t yell at summer. The flowers were also a big hit and this time I don’t mean flower prints, I mean flower crowns. For that woman that wants to feel sexier and wants to look more sophisticated there was a big hit with the strappy sandals. We are in some way going back to what was more minimalist but in a way made us feel so close to being a woman.
On the other hand, you will forever and always have your classic look. Even when you twist it up a little bit you are still emphasizing on what’s been here for let’s say a very long time. Here comes the Mary Jane (of course), what could be more classic than a shoe that can transform into a little girls favorite shoe to the dance floor of the hottest club? Featured with a pump platform and golden details it is just the perfect shoe to wear right now, during spring and I would say you’re safe to wear it next year.
All the designers did a great job in general in presenting what will be wearing in a few months. Will you be wearing any of the trends presented in the runways?

After a while its human nature to get bored, this happens to us in every single aspect of our lives. It’s more evident when were talking about a brand or a line. It’s true that when something works its good to stick to what’s safe but people get tired of safe and look for revamping in some way, they look to get that whoa.
Novus has been a pioneer on its business for years. We’ve been focused on bringing styles that are up to date with today’s fashion business and being the number 1 fashion store consumers look for in Puerto Rico. We are recognized for having the most updated and fashion forward styles. Come fall 2012 the company has decided it’s time for a change that will bring our customers even closer to us.
This time we engage on our connection with our loyal customers and even before the styles we embrace the idea of exceeding their expectations when it comes to customer service and understanding their needs & wants. We become part of their everyday routine and deeply study what they feel in order for them to be able to walk into our stores and feel confident that they will find what they are looking for.
This all reflects in our new campaign with short verses that dare you to be whoever you want to be and that fashion is not a way to dress is a way of life that is reflected however you want it to. The shoe or ensemble doesn’t make you, you make the outfit in your own unique way.
