Printed Silk Trousers
While the catwalks are great places to source outfit ideas and spot trends the sidewalks are equally inspiring. During the Spring 2012 fashion shows, it seemed all the top editors, buyers and bloggers (save the always staid Anna Wintour) were seen sporting luxe printed wide leg trousers. While the pants – in silk, jacquard and satin – were seen on the Celine, Dries Van Noten and Ralph Lauren...

Shoe Buyer Q&A
@_MsRobles: How’d you get into it? My second job at 15 years old was at a retails shoe store. It seems that it’s serendipitous that I am now once again in the shoe business 20 years later. I’ve worked retail most of my life and even got into Visual Merchandising. I left retail and worked in apparel and footwear wholesale for 7 years, but knew that I would eventually return to the retail...
