We love Holidays!

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

Splendid feasts are prepared, delectable treats spread lovingly over thoughtful table arrangements. The scent of invigorating fresh pine, and spicy sweet woody cinnamon, tantalize our senses. Sumptuous fabrics and adornments in cheery winter colors create an inviting ambiance of jovial festivity wherever we go.

It is a nostalgic time of the year, when we make space to reflect on the many ways we love and appreciate one another, the reasons why we stay together, or fall apart, yet hope to reconcile, cherishing the bonds that draw us closer to a more peaceful and exalted existence.  These magical people we’ve invited into our lives are the highlight of our holidays, and we are excited to honor them, celebrating the special qualities about them that inspire and amaze us year-round.

“To receive, give”, we hear, time and time again. It is with giving in mind that DNA Footwear has designed a brilliant holiday lookbook, a gift guide that makes it easier to share our passion for fashion with those who have given us so much of themselves.  Featured, is a fantastic selection of the hottest footwear and accessories by the season’s most coveted brands, like Sorel, Frye, Hunter, Palladium, Vans, Dolce Vita, Bed|Stu, UGG Australia, and many more, including Wolverine 1000 Mile by Samantha Pleet. Take a look!

Because gifting can be so “Pinteresting”, we’ve also, curated a collection of #DNAholiday Pinterest boards to complement our look book, giving you a fun space to put together your naughty & nice lists with ease!

We especially adore Smith’s Good Luck Jellies—a wristful of the charmed life will brighten anybody’s day! Full of good luck, the future will be so bright, SUPER’s Giaguaro Sunglasses must “shade” the day, reviving the memory of lingering Summer sunsets during the winter chill out!

Celebrity: Elizabeth and James Wishlist

Elizabeth and James Collection

It’s brands like these that make my job excruciatingly painful. The gorgeous elegance of textured, pattern heavy combinations mixed throughout the Elizabeth and James collection makes a girl want what she can’t have. Fusing  an uptown chic with downtown couture, colorful accents and masculine cuts, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have yet again released double trouble for my pocket book.

Vintage x Retro x  Modern, from shoes to accessories this collection turns the fashion conscious head spinning. Luxuriously modern in approach the twins have managed to capture classic elegance with contemporary cool. A bit pricey for the average consumer but each piece speaks loudly, so splurging every once in awhile with this brand will keep your closet up to date. Above are my SOME of my favorites and there is much more coming from the Spring collection. Included in DNA’s New Arrivals is a pair of the E-Clair Colorblock  High Heel Sandal.

Kid’s Style: Winter Accessories

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

kids accessories

First, we have to start by saying, “Does it get any cuter than this?!” No, seriously that chunky face, that little happy innocence, the hat! Nothing is cuter than a fat little nugget, okay maybe a fat little nugget WITH a winter hat!

You’re not the only one that needs to keep warm this winter, your tiny tots are even more susceptible to a winter cold. This winter, your kids will not only keep warm but keep warm in style with the help of DNA and UGG Australia who have a wide variety of hats, scarves, mittens, and earmuffs just for them!

Disclaimer: Please also put a shirt on your baby. A hat without a shirt really defeats the purpose.

The Perfect Pair: Men’s Combo Pack

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

men's fashion

Most men need a little “guidance” in the fashion department, that’s why we’ve come up with a brief  ”combo pack” guide. Unlike women, men need socks daily and often have little to no idea how to mix and match their boot/shoe and sock combinations (we understand, it’s confusing).

If you aren’t the bold type, stick with grays and blacks, but if you’re feeling adventurous add a print in the mix — you’ll stand out and you’re sure to get compliments from the ladies (Possibly men too. We can’t guarantee anything). Start off simple and work your way to prints because it is not the easiest task even for the oldest fashion aficionado.

Just when you thought you knew us, we’e switching it up on you and blogging about bags! For those of you have had the pleasure of visiting our Williamsburg store, you may have noticed the wide variety of handbags available only to go online later and be disappointed! We are happy to share with you our new collection of handbags currently available ONLINE!

Our favorite shoe brands such as Frye and Bed:Stu have branched out from footwear to accessories and we couldn’t be more appreciative. Now (finally) we have handbags to pair with our winter boots, completing our perfect DNA Footwear look. All that’s left to decide is which one fits best…the satchel, the crossbody, the tote?! So many choices it’s overwhelming!

The One, Two, Threes of Socks

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

socks

Socks are no longer  just for keeping cozy come winter, they have become a fashion accessory staple.

One. Cozy up with a cup of coffee and keep your toesies warm with this must-have winter accessory.

Two. Hipsters have perfected the art of rolled up pants with printed socks. Don’t let Williamsburg take credit for this trend, spread the sock love.

Three. The highly debate issue of socks with high heels still raises questions among many. Why? Because, much like wearing white after Labor Day, there is an unspoken rule about NOT wearing socks with open sandals or heels. But, rules were meant to be broken so put your fashion sense to the test this winter.

Now that you know the one, two, threes of socks, we’re going to spill the beans about our favorite sock brand, Darn Tough: They come with a lifetime guarantee. Yes, that means no matter how stinky or hole-y they get, you’re covered!
