Hey Ladies, 

I'm here to talk about one of my favorite boots this season, REGGIE! I have a pair myself, and I got my mom and my grandma a pair for Christmas, I know they're going to love them! These quilted faux suede boots are ridiculously comfortable and they stand out with the buckle strap & studs around the ankle. You can dress them up wtih tights & a dress or down with skinnies & a sweater. I can't leave the house in these without a compliment. 

 

So if you're shopping for you, or still need something for mom, hop on over & shop REGGIE.

Lindsey

Hello, Blowfish Friends! It's meeeeee Ilene from Much Love, illy and super stoked about the Christmas season! I'm all about decorating our apartment, eating and drinking anything holiday related and of course blasting my Christmas LOUD and CLEAR and ON REPEAT! (yes, i am that person. be glad you're not my neighbor.) So I thought today, it would be fun to share some of my favorite Christmas albums. 
 
though this is the very first Christmas album ( i think they have a couple more that they may have released after this), this continues to be one of my favorites. they give a modern twist on many of the classic favorites. Last Christmas and Angels We Have Heard on High give me goosebumps and We Need a Little Christmas and Deck the Rooftop make you want to get up on your feet and dance while decorating your Christmas tree! 
 
 
 
talk about taking classics and making them even more classic (if that's even possible!), Michael Buble does that. his already soothing voice with these gorgeous Christmas songs make the best combination - just like drinking hot chocolate with an extra topping of whip cream and sprinkles. just right.
 
 
 
okay, so to be honest, i am NOT the biggest fan of Justin Bieber - but we're gonna go back in time when this album was released and he still rocked the good boy vibe. because when you do that, it's worth it with this mix of classic and new Christmas songs penned by this young artist. with a dash of hip-hop and some romantic ballads, though the Biebs might have done lots of wrong, you can't go wrong with this CD.
 
 
 
i have loved this album for a very long time and still don't get sick of it. we all know how her infamous pipes can certainly go places. All I Want for Christmas always gets me in the Christmas mood, while Silent Night and Jesus Born on This Day are oh so breath-taking. Literally. Those notes. Insane.
 
 
 
last but not least, THIS album is a must have. why? a) love the unique, indie twist to classic and newly written songs by She + Him b) Zooey Deschanel c) Zooey Deschanel. period. just get this album and try not to be tempted to get bangs cut. happens to me every time.
 
what are some of your favorite Christmas albums?
Thanks for having me Blowfish Shoes B.Log! Merry Christmas! 
Much Love, Ilene (aka illy)

Hey Ladies, 

I'm here to tell you about one of my favorite styles of the season, the KIPSEY. This riding boot is pretty perfect. I love the buckle & exposed zipper detail, complete with a little heal and an almond toe. My favorite thing about this boot, is it pairs well with almost anything. I've been living in them & they still look good as new!

I put together a few styling ideas for you above!

1. Perfect for the Weekend

Whether you're running errands, hanging holiday decorations, shopping, or relaxing wtih friends, this simple look will keep you looking polished & feeling cozy. My personal favorite. When I can pull off looking put together and feeling like I could curl up by a fire with a book, that's mission accomplished in my mind.

2. All Day at the Office

 There's a way to make leggings fit right in at the office, and the answer is, sweater dress. Add a scarf and a bracelet and you're looking fresh while feeling your best. Because we all know leggings are the world's most comfortable pants option. Plus, this look really captures the true essence of KIPSEY, which is inspired by the classic riding boot, originally worn over those legging-like stirrup pants. So I guess what I'm saying is all you need is a horse to complete this look. (Jk!)

3. Ladies Night

The final look is one I'd wear for a night in with my ladies. It's a little trendy, but still fun and comfortable. I can definitely see myself sitting pretty with a glass of wine and my favorite kind of company in this outfit. 

Feeling like you might need to snag yourself a pair of KIPSEY? What's your favorite look? Comment below!

Lindsey

About a year ago, I decided to get good at painting my own nails. I was spending too much money on mani-pedis and I thought I'd rather put the funds towards growing my polish collection. For a few months- every time I wanted to get my nails done I went and bought a new nail polish color instead until I compiled a decent selection. In doing this, I've learned that the old 'practice makes perfect' saying is pretty spot on- though more like, 'practice makes pretty good' in this particular case. I decided to test my skills and got some of the girls together at the office and painted their nails for the holidays. It was so much fun!

I tried out a few different designs and it got me excited to keep changing up my nails from week to week. I'm personally not a fan of the bright red and green, it's just a bit bold for my tastes, so I chose to use more subtle pastels and deep winter hues, then added some metallics and sparkle for the finishing touches. I really just eyeballed the glittery tips, but if you're more of a perfectionist than I, you could always try taping off the design as well for cleaner lines.

Here's some pics:

This design makes me think of snowy days and snowflakes- agreed?

Focus on the wreath, don't mind the smudge. Pretty cute, right?!

Can you tell I was inspired by candy canes here?

 

Which design is your favorite? Blue, green or red? Comment below!

 Hey Ladies, 

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means it's time to start thinking about holiday shopping. Crazy how it always sneaks up on us so quickly, but I find it's best to take care of business rather than procrastinating. There's nothing I love more than the satisfaction of knowing my holiday shopping is done while all my friends are scrambling. 

We know it's not easy, which is why we're helping you out with some great ideas for you, for mom, for your sister & for your friends!

For you, because you're special! The WANDERLUST backpack is one of a kind. Whether you're headed to class or out to the shops, this backpack will fit all of your belongings and keep you looking cool. 

For mom, because she's given you the gift of life. The GLO flats are festive in the red cord fabric and they are super duper comfortable. The round toe and cushioned footbed will keep your mom on her feet and looking hip.

For your sister, your second hand, the IDRA wedge is where it's at. Get her a wedge that will make her stand out at holiday parties, out on a date, or out on the town! She'll love you for this, even more than she already does.

For your BFF, the INSPIRE scarf. This scarf is lovely and festive, and fits any budget. Perfect for grab bags & secret santas as well!

We are loving the over the knee trend this season. Our ATTILA style comes in 3 different colors and we can't get enough. We've been rocking this cutie around the office and out on the town. This boot is ridiculously comfortable and totally on trend, making it a serious go-to. It has an almond toe for a feminine look and a side zipper for extra convenience. 

There are endless ways to style this one up, but here are a few ideas for you! 

Do you rock the over the knee boots? What's your favorite way to style them?

Lindsey

 When it comes to footwear, we're always thinking ahead. Right now, the Spring 14 line has already been designed and we're in full production mode. For the Ecomm team, that means we're getting ready for our photo shoot! This time around, we've decided to get back to our Malibu roots, so we chose a Beach House theme. We scouted a bunch of amazing locations and could not be more excited about the final pick!

We're shooting at an actual beach in Malibu with an amazing garden and ocean view. There's some things about living in sunny SoCal that will just never get old... Like sitting on moutain tops looking down on the Pacific. (Apologies to all you braving the cole and the snow, we hope you're keeping toasty in some shearling booties right about now!)

We could not be more thrilled about our location, and the beautiful models and talented photographer we will be working with for this shoot!

Here's a peek at the location:

And our Beach House inspiration board we put together:

How excited are you to see what styles we're cooking up for Spring '14?!

Trist is when we say that we've got some amazing stuff we can't wait to show you!

Stay Tuned, 

Lindsey

Hello there my lovlies, today I'm going to talk about one of my favorite Fall trends, lace up booties! There's something about lace-up booties that make an outfit a bit more polished. Here are three styles that I love...

 

Anetta is the perfect everyday bootie! This style can go with all the Fall essentials whether is be tights, jeans, leggings & over the knee socks. Anetta also comes in four different colors. 

Feeling a bit fancier? Then Ilisa is for you! This style has a 3.5 inch wedge, but is more than comfy to wear around. My favorite outfit to wear with these guys are tights, black high-waisted shorts & a flowy chiffon top with a cardi. 


Want to feel stylish but feel cozy at the same time? Then style Atlas is perfect for you! This workman style boot has a shearling lining, which keeps you warm on days that are on the colder side. Another cool thing about Atlas is that you can wear the cuff folded down for a completely different look, it's like having two booties in one!

 

What are some of your favorite shoe trends for Fall?

Hello, Blowfish chums! It's meeeee again, Ilene (aka illy) from Much Love, illy and especially giddy about today's post because I am absolutely smitten by one of the newest Blowfish fall designs, the Bilocate booties
these booties first off could not be more comfortable due to its wedge design. the straps and zippers and the booties scream edgy, and with ankle booties being one of the hottest trends this fall defintely makes these booties a big winner! my favorite ways to rock the Bilocates have been with casual dresses or with a pair of comfy leggings. 
and one of the best parts of these booties is that they come in FIVE different colors (i own them in Dark Brown Faux Suede) but if i were you, i would literally make a *run* to buy yourself a pair because these bad boys are flying off the shelves! 
 
do you own a pair of Bilocates? what is your favorite way to style them?! 
 
Thanks again for having me, Blowfish! Much Love, Ilene (aka illy)
