Easter Shoes

Happy Easter everyone!

Easter is a day of celebration, even if you don't spend your morning in church! It means that spring is here (along with chocolate bunnies, yum!) and it's a great excuse to buy a new pair of springy shoes...obviously!

When we think of Easter, we think of pastels, white, and florals...take a peek at some of our favorites below! 

These Ivanka Trump heels are so cute & comfy with an edge of sexy! The stretchy straps fit everyone's feet perfectly, and the cork heel adds such a glamorous moment to any outfit. 

In love. 
They're the perfect spring neutral. Is your heart still beating? These LK Bennett beauts word: stunning. The laser cut detailing is beyond beautiful, and the leather is so soft you'll never want to take them off! We won't judge even if you sleep in them.

Mint is the color for spring, and what better way to celebrate the new season by sporting these darling flats in THE it color.  These Ivanka Trump flats will become your everyday shoe and the color adds a pop of fun to any outfit.

Wedges are so perfect for an Easter outfit, and these cream LK Bennett wedges are the perfect pair for your new Easter dress. Egghunt in the grass? No problem. Picnic in the park? Bring it on! They are so comfortable, and the cream patent leather is beautiful. You'll wear these wedges everywhere with every outfit! 

If these mint Ivanka Heels don't scream Easter, we don't know what will! Prada made this cut so popular and now Ivanka made it at a price-point that won't break the bank. The ankle strap is a huge trend for spring, and we think these heels are the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe!
Coral is a great color for Easter (plus spring and summer!), and these adorable LK Bennett slingback wedges are perfect for today! 

We hope you have a great Easter, enjoy some good food and of course rock your Bishop Easter shoes!

Scout Guide Photoshoot

This morning we had our photoshoot for The Scout Guide of Northern Virginia's 2013 edition, and we had so much fun! Everyone at TSG is so wonderful to work with, and we are so excited to be a part of this amazing publication!

The Scout Guide was started in Charlottesville, VA by two women who wanted to give local business owners the opportunity to advertise their businesses in a unique and beautiful way. The Scout Guide has grown incredibly fast, and they now have issues in cities all over the country! We were featured in last year's Scout Guide, and we could not be happier with our TSG experience! Read more about how The Scout Guide got started here.

This is our ad from last year, and you can check out the rest of the 2012 publication here!

Here are a few behind the scenes shots from today. We had so much fun at our shoot, and we want to give a huge thank you to Rob ScharetgKathryn MartinRachel Couch, and of course miss Sarah Steele!

Kelly wore these beautiful Studio Pollini heels, and we think they are the perfect pick for the shoot. The color is so stunning, and they are so unique! They are handmade in Italy, cost $395 and we have half and full sizes available! Nicholas Kirkwood is the Creative Director and he has done an amazing job! You might remember him from The Rachel Zoe Project last week!

Kelly was also wearing this beautiful Hyla DeWitt necklace, Margaret Elizabeth earrings (similar) and these CC Skye bangles. She sparkled from head to toe!

We are so excited about this project, and we can't wait for the final product to be out in May!

Staff Picks for Spring: Margaret

Hometown: Texas

How long have you been working at Bishop: 6 months

Fashion Icon: Kate Spade. I love her fresh but sophisticated take on the preppy aesthetic.

Heels or Flats: I love a sophisticated heel, but if I'm being honest, I live my life in ballet flats.

Personal Style: One of the reasons I love working at Bishop (and spend so much of my paycheck here) is that the store embodies that fresh but sophisticated, preppy aesthetic, but does so by pulling from a variety of designers that I don't find anywhere else.

First pair of shoes you bought for yourself: A pair of black peep-toe Ferragamo pumps that I found on sale when I was an intern. It was such a victorious moment!

Going to the Chapel

Wedding Season is upon us, and we couldn't be more excited about it! There is nothing better than celebrating and dancing the night away with your closest friends and family, especially when you're wearing a beautiful pair of shoes from Bishop, of course!

We have some fabulous options for spring brides, and we would love to be a part of your big day! After all, what is more important (besides the dress, of course!) than the shoes on your feet?!

The Ivanka Trump Nanci heel in gold or silver is the perfect bridal shoe! The heel is the perfect height to keep you comfortable all night while still feeling feminine and beautiful. The vintage brooch detail adds some serious glam, and the metallic hues will compliment any dress color or style.

These London Sole flats are so fun, and are perfect for a bride who wants to be comfortable on her big day! They are so adorable, and you could bring them on your honeymoon too! 

These Loeffler Randall and LK Bennett wedges (in gold and pewter) are perfect for an outdoor wedding. The Loeffler wedges are handmade and are meant to form and mold perfectly to your foot, so you will be super comfortable all night! The gold is so beautiful, and the leather is so soft, you won't ever want to take these babies off!

Last, but certainly not least, is the LK Bennett Nina. WOW. This shoe is so incredibly beautiful, and would be perfect for any spring bride. Who doesn't want to wear a princess shoe on their wedding day, and not to mention it takes care of your "something blue" too!

Horoscope Style: Aries

Aries women are fiery, energetic and independent. They are known for their leadership and courage, and these ladies are not afraid to fight for what they want. We are lucky enough to have an Aries lady of our own, and she helped us pick these looks!

1. Elaine Turner coral flats.

These flats are great for spring, and the tortoise shell chain is such a unique detail! The bright color is bold, just like all of you Aries ladies!

2. LK Bennett envelope clutch

This patent clutch also comes in navy, tan and blush, and we think it is the perfect accessory for a night out on the town! The patent leather is so shiny and the black is such a classic color.

3. CC Skye warrior bracelet

This CC Skye cuff is so beautiful! It isn't called the warrior cuff for nothing! This bold color is so strong, and it definitely matches the fiery, strong-willed personality of an Aries woman!

4. LK Bennett heels

These LK Bennett heels are our new favorites for spring, and we love seeing Princess Kate Middleton wear her pair of LKs! Talk about a strong, independent woman!

Staff Picks for Spring: Bryarly

Name: Bryarly

Hometown: Savannah, GA

How long have you been working at Bishop? Almost 2 months!

Fashion Icon: Whitney Port. I love how feminine her style is while still looking fashion forward and chic!

Heels or Flats: Heels

Describe your personal style: Eclectic. I go back and forth between classic, bohemian and trendy looks.

First pair of shoes you bought for yourself: Bright orange Converse All Stars. I wore them almost every day for 2 years, and I still have them. They're so torn up, but I can't bear to part with them!

I am such a sucker for bright colors and sundresses, and that's what spring is all about! I'm also loving all of the cork I'm seeing in spring shoes. It is a fun basic that goes with everything, but it's not a simple beige or tan. It's neutral with an edge! I'm so happy that the weather is finally warming up and I can't wait to wear these fun and colorful looks all the time!

1. Loeffler Randall clutch
I can't get over how much I love this bag. The colors are so bright and I love the chain strap. Looking at this bag makes me happy, and it would make me even happier to look at it in my closet!

2. Joie mint flats
These flats are so easy, and of course mint is the color to own this spring!

3. Hyla DeWitt necklace
This necklace is such an eye catching statement piece. The colors and the sparkles are so fun, and if this baby were mine I don't think I'd ever take it off!

4. Elaine Turner cork wedges
I have already expressed my love for cork everything, and these wedges are the perfect shoe for spring! Neutral yet fun, and did I mention how comfortable they are?

5. Ivanka Trump pink heels
These heels are so fun! Who doesn't need a neon pink heel? Plus, the straps are elastic so they stretch and move with your foot. Super comfy, super fun!

St. Patty's Day

Happy St. Patty's Day, everyone! We hope you all enjoyed some green beverages last night and are getting some R&R this lazy Sunday.

Emerald is the pantone of 2013, and we could not be happier about it. From mint to hunter, we are seriously loving the green hues we are seeing everywhere this spring! Traditionally on St. Patty's day you are supposed to wear green in order to avoid being pinched, so we thought we'd give you some fun ways to rock the pantone of the year today!

These Joie flats are so adorable, and beyond comfy...very French chic! The color is the perfect pop that will make all your friends envy your shoe-style when meeting for brunch or a stroll around Old Town! 
....oh and lets discuss the feel of the leather...butter. 

Simple. We are so obsessed with this Loeffler Randall rider bag! It's fire. Your closet isn't complete without it. 

Make a statement with this brand new Hyla DeWitt necklace that arrived just in time for today! 

These Ivanka Trump heels are such a fun color, and we love the style of this shoe! Ivanka is always able to combine style, comfort and affordability into every piece of her collection. We like to say: once you go Ivanka you never go back! 

We love the color of this Milly bag -- it's the perfect statement piece to elevate any outfit this Spring!

Enjoy your St. Patrick's day, and if you can't find any green in your closet you know where to come!

Toast to Fashion

Last night, the Junior Friends hosted Toast to Fashion to benefit the Campagna Center. We were so excited to be included and to showcase some bishop shoe-goodies for the beautiful models to strut their stuff!

The Campagna Center's mission is to inspire a commitment to learning and achievement among children, teens and adults that has the power to change their lives and our community. It's such a great organization, and we are so glad to be able to give back!

The first lovely lady sporting Bishop shoes was Willow. She wore these Ivanka Trump leopard heels with a sexy black dress and wore these Elaine Turner flats with her other adorable outfit. Her clothes were from Zoe Boutique. Doesn't she looked fabulous!

The second model wearing Bishop shoes was Melissa. With her first look from Top It Off she wore these Elaine Turner sandals, and with her second look she wore these Elaine Turner cork wedges.

Our third Bishop model was Bethany who was wearing thee LK Bennett wedges and these adorable All Black flats in gold. Her clothes were from Bloomers, and she looked so great!

Nicole, another one of our amazing models, was wearing Villa Del Alpaca ponchos, and we paired these unique pieces with these Ivanka Trump heels and these Elaine Turner Wedges

Our last model was wearing an adorable outfit from The Lucky Knot with these Loeffler Randall flats. Unfortunately we don't have a photo of her strutting her stuff on the runway, but she looked fabulous!

Jen Peterson, President of the Junior Friends, was rocking her LK Bennett heels from Bishop! Jen and her hubby were too cute on the catwalk. 

We were so honored to be included in this amazing event! We had so much fun, and all the models looked so great!
