Video & Lookbook Shoot: Behind the Scenes

This past Sunday we braved the wind and rain to shoot our Spring/Summer 2013 video and lookbook. We had the most fabulous team working the shoot!  We are so excited about the final product and cannot wait to share it with yall! But, first, here is a little behind-the-scenes action.

The amazingly talented Carlis from Spicy Candy DC styled the shoot -- we are so glad we had her by our side! She assembled a top-notch group of creative and stylish women.

The wonderful women from The W Salon did the models' hair, makeup and nails and they did such an amazing job! The girls looked so glamorous and the little details on their nails looked amazing with the shoes, accessories and bags.

Our photographer was the fabulous Caroline Lacey from Coo Photography. She was so easy to work with, and the photos look so beautiful! (eek! we cant wait to share them!) She's talented beyond belief, and we are so glad she was there to photograph all our Bishop goodies! Julie from Julip Made was our set director, and she did an incredible job! The picnic scene was SO adorable, and she was so helpful with styling and making sure that every shot looked perfect!

We were so excited to have two local bloggers in the video, and we had such a blast working with them! Abbey from District Dress Up and Ally from Chain Strap Purse have such great style, and they looked fab in all our shoes and accessories! Our other two models were Katelyn (Kelly's sister) and Bryarly, our very own Assistant Manager and blogger from Everything that Flickers! Katelyn came down from NYC for the weekend and we were so excited to have her here!

We also couldn't thank Zoe Boutique enough for letting us borrow four beautiful outfits for the shoot. They complimented our pieces perfectly, and really helped pull the looks together!

Happy Anniversary, Will & Kate!

This Monday marks Will & Kate's second wedding anniversary, and we thought we'd celebrate across the pond with our annual LK Bennett sale! LK Bennett is one of Kate's favorite designers -- she is seen wearing her LK Bennies all the time! She's still rocking the nude heels during her pregnancy! Could she be any more chic?

The collection is handmade in Italy and Spain -- the leather, oh gawd, that leather is so amazingly perfect, its like buttah. Every piece of our LK Bennett collection will be 15% off on Saturday (ONLY!), so grab your size while it's still here!

Everyone deserves a princess moment!

Happy birthday to all our Taurus ladies! Taurus women are known to be very sensible, patient and wise. They are very stylish and put together, and they value strength and practicality.

Earth Day Special on NOAH Bags!

NOAH stands for NO Animal Harmed, and they are devoted to the well being of animals. Their products are made from non-leather materials, and a portion of the profits from every bag sold goes towards the ASPCA and the North Shore Animal League.

These "Safari" and "Love Bird" printed clutches are so beautifully made, and are very lightweight which makes them the perfect bag for a night out or a stroll around town!

A bag you can feel good about!

This is the "Love Bird" print in the brown and red colors. Each print comes in red, brown and blue, and the "Safari" print comes in a light green.

You can use the handle of your bag to carry it, or you can fold it over and use it as a clutch!

This is such an awesome company, and we think it's only appropriate that we feature these awesome bags on Earth Day! They are all 30% off from April 20th-22nd, so come by the store and grab yours because they won't be here for long!!

Tax Return = New Shoes!

Happy tax season, everyone!! This is the time of year where we spend hours trying to remember how to file our taxes (or bribe our accountant friends to do them for us...). After the frustrating, confusing ordeal of trying to decode tax forms, we can hopefully expect a generous return a few weeks later. I like to think of my tax return as free money, and what else would you do with free money than buy new shoes! Obviously!

We have so many fun new shoes and bags for spring in neutrals and black & white, but we think that your tax refund should go to something different and funky! Why not use part of your refund on a pair of blue heels or a hot pink bag that you wouldn't normally buy because you're a budget conscious chick? Every girl needs a statement bag or pair of shoes, and your tax refund is the perfect way to fund them! A treat for your feet, or for your arms, respectively!

These are some of our favorite statement shoes and bags, and we don't think you'll be able to resist now that you have a few extra dollars in your pocket!

These Ivanka Trump heels are so sassy and are the perfect partner to your sexiest LBD. They are so flattering, and the pink and snake accents on the toe and heel are definite head turners! Did we mention the amazing comfort of these babies? You'll dance the night away in these fabulous heels!

Let's be honest. Who doesn't need a hot pink bag? You'll be able to fit your whole life into this Milly tote. You can pair this bag with pretty much anything, and it is the perfect statement piece for spring and summer!

Hello, beautiful. These woven Loeffler Randall wedges are to. die. for. The color combo makes them extremely versatile, and you'll wear them endlessly. 

Green is the pantone of 2013, so obviously this Milly bag has to be a part of your 2013 wardrobe! The zipper detail gives this bag a little rock edge, and the green is such a beautiful emerald, and everyone will be green with envy when they see you strut your stuff down the street with this bag on your arm!

These red LK Bennett wedges are the perfect nautical wedge for barbecues and boat parties! The suede is so soft and the red is a fun pop of color that adds to every outfit. Pair them with white jeans, flowy skirts & dresses and even shorts! Hello summertime!

Bloggers by Bishop: Pink Peonies

Rachel Parcell from Pink Peonies has AH-mazing style which is why we follow her blog religiously! Her look is built on a classic-preppy base but she adds in key style pieces and color that define her look -- its definitely one we admire and dream to copy every day when we get ready! Style must run in the family, because her sister Emily has a fabulous blog called Ivory Lane that we are obsessed with too! These stylish sisters are definitely two of our fashion muses, and we think you'll feel the same!

This past week she put together a post with some adorable mint pointed toe flats, and they look a lot like the Ivanka Trump flats we have in the store! By now you know how much we love mint, (who doesnt?!) and these flats are no exception! Rachel's outfit is complimented perfectly by her big black bag, which is a necessity for every girl's wardrobe! The contrasting colors of mint and black are such a great combo, and we are definitely rocking them this spring!

Here are our favorite mint flats by Ivanka Trump. Mint goes with pretty much everything, so you can use it as a neutral, and the pointed toe makes your foot look so thin!

We also have these Loeffler Randall mint flats. They have the same pointed toe as the Ivanka Trump flats, but they have a fun pattern that adds a little extra flare to them! These are the perfect flat for the girl who loves a good pattern, and they have that awesome black/mint color combo going on.

This Milly bag is the perfect black tote. It's big enough to carry everything you need, but not so bulky that you feel weighed down by it! Plus, it has handles as well as a shoulder strap so you can wear it multiple ways. The versatility, and the style of this bag make it a necessary addition to your wardrobe! 

Rachel is also wearing some killer bracelets that look a lot like this CC Skye bracelet we have in the store! Talk about rocker chic!

Baby's First Shoes

As summer inches closer we are getting more and more excited to welcome baby-boy-Bishop!

Kelly and her husband Chris featured these adorable baby booties from Pink & Brown in their New Years card -- which was the perfect way to spread holiday cheer and announce their wonderful news! 

Nobody understands the importance of a good pair of shoes more than us, and these baby booties are the most precious pair we've ever seen! The booties are a beautiful heather grey but the photography lighting made them look blue on the card...a baby boy was meant to be! 

A couple of weeks ago, Kelly added these oh-my-gawd-adorable boat shoes to the little guys shoe closet. Such a great buy from 529 Kids Consign.  Perfect for his first beach-week with the family this summer!

Both of these shops are great for finding those kiddie-must-haves, plus they're members of the Old Town Boutique District...how could you NOT shop there!?! We love supporting other local businesses, and we're so happy to be a part of such a welcoming and inclusive community!

We also want to give a shout out to the fabulous photographer who took the New Years Eve shot, Susannah from Alumbra Photography. She is so talented, and so wonderful to work with! We've just booked our newborn shoot with her...now we just need the little man to make his debut! 10 more weeks!
