Barney’s focuses on real people for their shoppable videos

By , April 5, 2012 1:16 pm

WHAT’S TRENDING

Department Store, Barneys New York is experimenting with how social integrates into e-commerce through the second release of their shoppable video this quarter. Barneys-Video

The focus is “Transform the Everyday Black Dress,” which features fashion blogger Geri Hirsch (www.becauseimaddicted.net and founder of LeafTV), whom is actually videoed while shopping in Barneys’ Beverly Hills store location. The goal of this campaign is to target a younger demographic through this trendy strategy, while incorporating the classic aspects of the Company Brand which synergizes with the classic look of the ‘Black Dress’ and how some additional accessories could give it a ‘face-lift.’

This clip features links to Barneys’ ecommerce site in order for consumers to actually purchase the items that are featured.

This video goes through some real-life experiences that women deal with on a daily basis, which is why it made it relatable and translatable in their lifestyles.

This strategic approach of utilizing an average woman that their target market could relate to, as opposed to their typical model was quite interesting, and decreased the focus on constantly improving their cosmetic appearance.  This should allow their consumers to focus on the actual apparel/accessories and should result in an increase of sales.

Wow! Designer Markus Lupfer — so Refreshing!

Markus Lupfer Fall 2012 RTW

Markus Lupfer Fall 2012 RTW

Have you heard of London based designer,  Markus Lupfer? He’s new to me. He’s considered a “young person’s designer” with graphic tees and comic style. You’ll see what I mean when you view his video. However, I am a grown up girl who enjoyed his charming video with a “Japanese Pop Theme” and I’m really loving his Fall 2012 line. His use of brocade, black leather, and a 3 piece suit with cigarette pants is oh so divine. He is fashion forward yet classic in cut and design. And oh so very refreshing. Just what I needed. How about you?

Orange You Glad It’s Spring!!

By , March 15, 2012 12:35 pm

The past few days have given us a jump start on what to expect for Spring weather here in New York City! With Spring just a few days away, the Big Apple is ready to wear Spring’s hottest color, Orange! Officially it is being called Tangerine Tango!  If you are a fashion warrior, you are going to go all in and wear your Tangerine Tango with pride. Here at F.I.T., I can assure you  it will be all over the place. For those of you who may be a bit hesitant about this season’s color, I have a solution. Shoes!

Shoes solve every thing! Really….every thing! You’re wardrobe from last year can be update by infusing Tangerine Tango as your “neutral” color for shoes. You can wear it with ANY color and hit two trends in one, Color Blocking and Tangerine Tango! I took the liberty to find 4 affordable options that will amp up the volume in your wardrobe.

These 3 styles, available at Zappos.com, are easy to wear while exploring the city because they are wedges and a platform.

I have always looked forward to the Payless designer collaborations. I purchased a pair of fashion forward wedges from Lela Rose last season and this year she came through again. I love this wedge and it’s super affordable and chic!

You can also be sexy and add just a hint of Tangerine Tango to your shoe with this gorgeous heel from ZARA. Isn’t it sexy?

So what ever your style and price range, there is a shoe out there for you to get accquainted with Tangerine Tango before you take the leap.

Next time we’ll explore how to wear the color in our clothing.

Love is in the air!

By , February 8, 2012 3:41 am

It’s that time of the year again! Love is in the air! Now, I think you should love yourself EVERYDAY and receive love EVERYDAY but on this day, you might want to show it just a little more. We could all use a little more love.

Whether you’re going on a date with your Valentine or hanging out with friends, you’ve got to look good to feel good! It doesn’t have to break the bank either.

Rule #1: When buying outfits for a “themed” holiday or special occasion, you should make sure you can wear it more than once a year.

Rule#2: You should be comfortable!

Rule #3: Don’t over spend. Come up with a budget and stick to it.

I found a few looks to fit whatever mood you find yourself in on Valentine’s Day.

If you’re feeling sophisticated, try this Classic look

Asos red dress

Are you a free spirit? Try this Boho look

Asos white dress

Do you like to be different? Here’s a Modern look

Asos green pattern dress

Is “Bling” a major word in your vocabulary? Here’s a show stopping Glam look

Asos bling dress

 

All of these looks can be worn through out the year and probably go with a pair of shoes you already own. They are also all under $100 and can be found on www.asos.com! You can look fantastic on a budget. Just because it’s Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to wear red! Be adventurous. Be unique.

So love yourself and look your best this Valentine’s Day. Send a picture to show us your look!
