Accessories Director Leah Karp’s 5-Day Shoe Diary
With great accessories comes great responsibility—a responsibility to share said accessories. And since no one at InStyle has greater, chicer add-ons than Accessories Director Leah Karp, we journaled her enviable heels, from sexy studded Valentino stilettos to amazing cut-out Alaias, for five days in photo-diary form. Flip through to glimpse (or: gaze, gawk, ogle) at just a fraction of her covet-worthy collection.

What We Snapped: British designer Aruna Seth’s Union Jack crystal-covered wedge shoes
Captured On: July 25, 2013
Marianne Says: "All week long, Brits have been on our mind. First with Duchess Catherine going into labor, then with the arrival of baby Prince George. InStyle got our very own real-life British invasion when London-based accessory designer (and Pippa Middleton favorite) Aruna Seth stopped by our New York office to show us her new collection. The standout piece for me were these blinged-out crystal-covered British flag wedges. They sparkled even more than what you can see in the picture! As a huge Spice Girls fan, I couldn’t help but think that Ginger Spice needs a pair of these.”
Behind-the-Scenes: Saturday Night Dinner Plans
“On Saturday night, I rendezvoused at fashion editor Hellin Kay’s third annual celebration for her blog, champagneandheels.com. Hosted at The Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills’s yummy restaurant, Caulfield’s, the six-course menu coupled dishes with personally selected wines. We started with fried squash blossoms, Sonoma goat cheese and pumpkin seed mole with The Messenger White Wine Number One. A few lamb meatballs, duck fried rice servings, and many wine pours later, we ended with fried doughnut holes and a chocolate mousse roll. As delicious as it was, the best part wasn’t the food—before digging in, each of the 30 guests headed to the upstairs section of the restaurant to check out one of the blogger’s favorite lines of footwear: Tsubo. I gravitated towards the patent leather loafers (see pic). They are the perfect fall shoe.”

Behind-the-Scenes: Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!
"Hello from the InStyle fashion closet! When I took a peek inside this week, I found Accessories Editor Thomas Waller and Senior Market Editor Dana Avidan-Cohn prepping rows and rows of shoes for a fashion shoot. Some of our favorites: Dolce & Gabbana’s ruby red jewel-covered lace heels (paging Dorothy!), Sergio Rossi’s embroidered navy and gold peep-toes, and Sophia Webster’s artful metallic pom pom pumps. Gorgeous!”

In Case You Missed: Espadrilles and InStyle on Good Morning America
"I stopped by Good Morning America on a steamy New York City morning to show host Lara Spencer summery espadrilles to wear for work, weekends and nights out. I showed off pairs by Prada and Burberry (shown), and how to get the look. Most of our models were our own InStyle interns, and they got to wear styles by MICHAEL Michael Kors, Wild Diva Lounge, and BCBG. Click here to watch the clip!”

What We’re Wearing: Wooden Heels
It’s hard to miss the latest footwear fad in our New York office. Between flatforms and strappies, we’re seeing (or rather, hearing) a clatter of chunky wooden heels. And thanks to their au naturel state, they go with pretty much anything (ahem, like a red pedi).

The most intense moments of theater are right before the curtain rises. Seems nobody knows that better than Brian Atwood. The master of dramatic footwear always puts on a show, but his swingy black and gold peep-toes seem particularly poised to gather an audience. I’ll take center stage in these heels no matter how crowded the room, because all eyes will be waiting for these curtains to move.
