Spring 2012 Shoe Trends Preview from Jellypop

Everything She Wants recently previewed Jellypop's girly Spring 2012 collection during the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY) showcase.  Most shoes in the budget-savvy brand are under $50 and are available at retailers nationwide including Famous Footwear and DSW Shoe Warehouse.

Afterwards, I chatted with Jellypop founder Jennet Chow via email.  The 31-year-old is an avid photographer and learned how to sketch and design shoes by watching her father. Here's what Chow had to say about about what inspires her her trendy designs, what's in store for spring, and more.

Everything She Wants: What was your inspiration for starting Jellypop (owned by Evolution Design Lab, Inc.)?

Girlie platform sandals in playful patterns are hot for spring. 
Jennet Chow: The creative team I work with inspire me.  We always wanted to create our own brand one day.  I also saw how there was a lack of strong, affordable junior brands in the marketplace.  We have a strong history of helping to build strong junior brands for licenses with our product and design.

ESW: How would you describe Jellypop's target customer?

JC: [She is] 13+, young, spunky and free-spirited, with a great sense of humor. Girls who love fashion, but don’t want to break the bank.


An adorable pair of Mary-Janes can be worn year-round.

I love these color-blocked, suede pumps with a metallic heel and hint of leopard print.

These Southwest-inspired cowboy boots are certainly on trend for fall.

ESW: What are the brand's hottest trends for spring 2012 and fall 2012?

JC: For Spring 12, [we have] vibrant colors, platforms, 70’s inspired and boho chic [looks], and colors including blues, nudes, yellow, white eyelet and floral prints.

For Fall 12, [we have] plaid, wedges, sweater detailing, engineer boots, grunge, suedes and mirrored metallic [styles].  The colors include tan, taupe, rose gold, distressed brown, cognac, berry and teal, preppy (penny loafers).  And for dressy [looks]. we offer more feminine sillouettes.

ESW: Jellypop shoes are very affordable, but what's your biggest fashion splurge?

JC: I do splurge on shoes every once in awhile.  I love shoes…for instance a pair of nude patent heels from Prada, classic Chanel flats and a classic blocky vintage heel, and a few pairs of Manolo Blahniks.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

SEE Eyewear Opens a New Brooklyn Store

Whoever said guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses hasn't  seen SEE Eyewear . The eclectic eyewear brand offers fashionable yet affordable prescription and non-prescription  eyeglasses  and sunglasses.  SEE stocks a limited quantity of each pair of its unique glasses (about 80), so you probably won't run  into another subway rider rocking the same specs.  Recently, SEE opened a new store in the hipster-hangout  Williamsburg  section of Brooklyn and  Everything She Wants  got a sneak peek.  The new Brooklyn store is located on Bedford Avenue and Everything She Wants readers will receive a 20 percent discount in-store with the code "BEDFORDAVE."  I was gifted my first pair of designer reading glasses with no-glare lenses to protect me from eye-straining computer use.  There are so many cool styles, it was hard to pick just one. But I narrowed my favorites down to three, and ultimately selected a chic pair of cat eye, tortoise shell frames. I can
