Stuart Weitzman has been synonymous with quality and stylish for more than 30 years. The American luxury brand is sold in over 75 countries and boasts over 70 retail stores. The designer’s philosophy is fashion and function, aiming to create a shoe that feels as good as it looks. Last year, Stuart Weitzman stepped down as creative designer from his eponymous line, handing the reigns to Giovanni Morelli, the former creative designer for brands like Chloe and Marc Jacobs.

That said, Fall 2018 is a cause for celebration for fashionistas worldwide. Morelli’s fresh eye and knack for innovation has given rise to a unique and truly exciting line of footwear, from combat boots, to mink slides, to crystal embellished mules. I had the privilege of seeing these beauties in person on my most recent Market trip, and I remember leaving the showroom inspired. GAL Fashion is thrilled to be the exclusive retailer of Stuart Weitzman shoes in El Paso.

Now, let’s talk trends. Spring 2018, Weitzman’s last season at the helm of his company, was all about casual comfort. This Spring, enjoy flats or a blocked heel (your sky high stilettos and wedges can stay on your shelf!). The lower the better — What a relief, considering the retail world can be brutal on your feet.

We’ve seen a great response to flat shoes and sneakers in the store. Some clients want to know, “How do you style sneakers?” or, “How can you dress up slides?” There are many ways to style your kicks, and here, I show you how. Pictured below, I styled my top 3 picks for the Spring 2018 Weitzman collection.

The “One” Crystalized Mule: A perfect example of how you can dress up or dress down with the same shoe. The Gaming: A rose gold metallic sneaker can be paired with a day dress or a casual Sunday outfit. The Sandbar: My all-time favorite. Here, I’ve styled a chic outfit and travelwear.

I’m always happy to answer any styling questions and comments at gesuina@galfashion.com. Remember, GAL Fashion is the exclusive Stuart Weitzman retailer in El Paso. You can pre-order your favorite pieces at shop.galfashion.com.

It’s most wonderful time of the year: the blistering summer months are coming to a close and fresh, Fall trends are cropping up in stores. One of the top trends for Fall, I’m happy to report, is florals: bright, happy flower prints are gracing runways from Gucci to Céline. This is great news for the budget conscious consumer, since Spring prints can be transitioned into the new season with the addition of cashmere sweaters, boots, or bomber jackets. The prints are now a staple of every wardrobe that can be paired with almost any bottom and accessory. Shockingly versatile, florals are here to stay, so pull them out of your closet and freshen up those flowers with tights and cold-weather accessories come winter.

Ever wished you could wear pajamas in public, but fear judgement for sloppy dressing? Designer Michelle Mason makes wishes come true with a sexy, elegant take on the lounge-wear-for-day trend that won’t make you look like you’re ready for bed.

In these photos, I’m wearing two styles that are in line with the pajama silk trend, but aren’t over the top. We’re happy to carry the new Mason by Michelle Mason Collection at GAL and offer pieces like the Robe Dress, as seen on trend-setting celebrities like Khloe Kardashian. Elegant with a hint of sexiness, the dress comes in a variety of shades and colors. It has the look of a robe but can be worn loose, or with a belt and also as a third piece.

The price on these two pieces? $680 — yes, a little over our budgets but the pajama trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so consider this a fashion investment. Michelle Mason items are luxe, on-trend, and sure to make you the statement gal, effortless and fashion-forward without feeling subconscious. Step out of the box and rock the pajama!

On today’s episode of GAL Talk, we’re proud to introduce our new resident stylist, Yaritsa Rosario. “Yari” recently moved from Houston to El Paso after cutting her fashion teeth as a stylist at Nordstrom in the Woodlands, Texas. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Yari brings with her a great sense of fashion and palpable energy to the team.

Next up — Mother’s Day! The special day is upon us and we’ve got plenty of unique gifts to celebrate the mother or mothers in your life. GAL makes it easy to show your love and appreciation with something thoughtful and stylish with our top 5 Mothers Day Must Haves:

  1. Le Specs: Most moms have the tendency to take care of everyone but themselves. Treat your mom to some tasteful and fashion sunnies at an affordable price with glasses from Le Specs. Nothing says she’s a “Cool Mom” like a great pair of sunglasses. Founded in 1979, Le Specs is an international brand that can be seen on all the celebrities and available at the hottest retailers. The styles range from an accessible $60-$100

  2. Bandoliers: The most brilliant invention for moms. The Bandolier is a designer-inspired leather phone case with a cross body strap, equipped with a case for your credit card and ID. Even better, the designer has added a case for your lipstick and keys, so all your essentials fit in one streamlined and fashionable case.The perfect gift for moms on the go!

  3. Kendra Scott: This is our go-to when it comes to gifts. Not only is everything plated in 14kt gold or silver, but Kendra Scott pieces are durable, versatile and beautiful. Another benefit to this line is the price point — perfect for splurging on grandma, sister, friend or any other mom in your life! Better still, whether your mama is a Kendra Scott collector or new to the line, you can add to her collection for other holidays or birthdays. The line is so consistent with its metals that you can match her pieces for upcoming special occasions. You can even buy an entire set for under $200!

  4. WOLF: Speaking of jewelry, Luxury British made Wolf is 100% leather and is a fifth generation family brand. If your mom is the type that already has everything, this brand boast luxury travel kits, portable mini wallets to disguise your fine jewelrry and decided jewelry cases perfect for a closet. The pieces are beautifully made and display a luster velvet on the inside to protect your jewels from all the oxygen and toxins that tarnish it in regular cases. These items can only be found at Nordstrom, Shopbop and now GAL!

  5. The big finally: If you are really looking to say I LOVE YOU, whether it’s a gift from all the kids, or even a mom to be, fine jewelry is forever. Meira T is 14 karat gold with diamonds and natural stones, and serves as a great gift to show all of your appreciation. Our favorite thing about this brand is that each piece carry such symbolism; the mini hanging charms around the necklaces which can represent kids, family, a husband or other loved one. Even our moon and star piece has been sold for “Mother and Baby”. This line is the most expensive thing on our list but it is also something that can be kept forever. Meira T was created from moms who do it all and never take off their special REAL pieces.

Created in 2009 to create the perfect winter coat, Alessia Giacobino started the company known as Mr. and Mrs. Italy, she reinvented the classic parka by adding a modern twist. The designer began lining the Parka’s with exotic furs, adding fur trims on cuffs and hoods, and applying the same luxe touches to classic bomber jackets and trench coats.

Bomber, Army jackets, and trench coats are classic silhouettes from the 1920’s that continue to serve as must-haves, and the fur trims have made a good thing even better. The Mr. and Mrs. Italy offerings have become popular with stylish celebs like Rhianna and Cara Delevigne.

While the high-end label ranges in price from $2,500 to $10,000, Gal Fashion carries Mr. and Mrs. Italy-inspired pieces without the price tag. Jocelyn Furs, pictured here, are made of authentic fox and mink (always the first to sell out). Another more affordable option we carry at GAL are the faux fur options by Central Park West. These features adjustable and detachable faux add-ons to a wide range of styles.

Whether you’re in the market for faux or the real thing, we’ve got you covered when it comes to fun and fabulous furs this winter!
