i hope you haven’t made plans for the weekend because there’s a bevy of fashion soirees about town and new boutiques to check out too. Clear your calendars for the weekend ladies and gents! Here’s what’s up:
Nové Grand Opening
A quite conspicuous-looking black invite arrived about this party tonight in celebration of the new boutique, Nové, opening up at Scottsdale Seville. Stop by for the usual complimentary sips and nibbles, provided by Taberna. And to check out the fashions, of course. 20% of any purchases made will benefit the Global Family Philanthropy.
Ted Baker New favorite, Ted Baker is having the kind of party that’s always a fave: Just because. Enjoy complimentary Tedtinis and 20% off any purchase. There’s even a chance to win a $250 shopping spree.
Fashion Next: 7 for all Mankind After the Nové and Ted Baker parties, stop by the W Scottsdale to cap off your fashion fix with a show featuring items from 7 for all Mankind. Proceeds for the evening benefit Crawford’s Leadership Children’s Foundation.
I’ve long been a fan of Scottsdale Fashion Square’s Hub for great finds for both men and women. The owners behind the boutique are now opening up AZ’s first G-star RAW store in the Hub’s former space. Stop by to check out a fashion show of their fall 2010 collection, live music and complimentary bites from Sushi Roku.

Tiffe Fermaint Friday, November 19 Arizona Center 7pm to 11pm Tickets: Free or $20 for runway seats. Ticket purchase benefits Arizona Animal Welfare league and SPCA. Purchase tickets here.
One of my favorite reasons to adore fall is that we can finally wear all our cute boots! From ankle to mid-calf and knee-high varieties, I don’t discriminate. I just loooooooove boots. This season is all about thigh high and over-the-knee boots which I’ve blogged about in the past. But for some reason this is one trend I’ve noticed most are scared of.
Sure, if you do it wrong you’ll totally end up with the Pretty Woman effect. And even when I wear my very new and very favorite gray Sam Edeleman over-the-knee-boots, I’m always met with the following expression:
They’re versatile, and they’re amazing. If you’re afraid it’s too agressive, try a flat boot similar to some of the pairs pictured below. Wear them with jeans, leggings, tights, skirts and dresses too. Just be sure you aren’t showing excessive amounts of skin so you aren’t mistaken for a streetwalker.
Look there’s no real other way to say this other than, this is kind of a big deal. You’ve probably heard by now that Lanvin is designing a line for H&M, to be released on November 20th. And even though we’ve been snubbed for designer collections in the past, it won’t be happening this time! You’ll be able to pick up your Lanvin for H&M threads at Scottsdale Fashion Square‘s store come November 20th. Yes, you’ll probably have to line up. Maybe overnight. Like I said, kind of a big deal.
The store will be opening at 8am for devoted fashionistas to pick up their Lanvin wares. And honestly, why shouldn’t you? Have you seen this collection? Amaze. This video is positively lust-worthy.
It’s a bit on the pricier side, with some pieces ranging up to $349. But considering Lanvin pieces regularly retail for much much more, it’s still rather a steal.
What look are you coveting? Will you be lining up the night before to score some Lanvin for H&M?
You can buy tickets here. And you can see the breakdown for ticket structure here.
On a sidenote, I’m excited to see that the break between shows is much shorter than in year’s past. Hopefully this will help keep everyone at the shows and not get stir-crazy as I’ve seen happen before.
