Legendary Designer Oscar De La Renta Dies at 82

This morning, the world lost an icon. Oscar De La Renta, known for his distinct taste in art and style, has dressed Hollywood's elite, but was most commonly known for dressing former First Lady, Jacqueline Onassis. De La Renta, born in the Dominican Republic, was the first Dominican designer to really hit it big with Haute Couture. From 1993-2002, he made collections for the House of Balmain.

De La Renta’s name reached new heights when Sex and the City started airing. Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, really put De La Renta’s brand out there, along with Manolo Blahnik. In the final season of Sex and the City, Carrie’s boyfriend, Petrovsky, stated that he was good friends with Oscar De La Renta and later gave Carrie a gorgeous gown made by the well-known designer.

Get the Perfect Festival Look with CAT Footwear

Exciting news for NYC's cool-CAT Footwear fans: the brand has opened an October pop-up shop at THE CORNER (47th Street and Lexington Avenue), and it will be open to consumers from October 21st to the 28th. Shop your favorite fashion-meets-function boot styles and stop in for one of the many events scheduled for this month. The first, which took place Saturday, October 11th, the International Day of the Girl, benefitted E.P.I.C (Everyday People Initiating Change), a charity two Cat #Earthmovers are affiliated with, by donating a portion of sales proceeds to the organization. Feeding Fall footwear cravings couldn't feel any better!

For those who are unfamiliar with the workwear-inspired shoe manufacturer, here's the 411: these are NOT your parents' Cats. The company, which originally specialized in designing heavy-duty boots, has now broadened its reach by creating fashionable, everyday styles. The sturdy models are reliable, go-to shoes that provide adequate support with accompanying style. In our opinion, these are ideal festival shoes (heads up to those looking for a Hunter boot alternative) for those long days on your feet dancing, trudging through muddy grounds, and posing for pics. After flipping through the new SS15 collection, we felt inspired to put together a few festival looks that we can't wait to rock.

The "Rock 'n Roll" Couple

A notch up from your average Tims, these sleek boots not only look cool, but also come in a practical color that masks the inevitable wear-and-tear resulting from a week of outdoor festivities and partying hard. Hide yesterday's all-nighter under a pair of aviator shades and dark jeans (for some reason, deeper washes always look crisper than their lighter counterparts).

Indigo jeans, All Saints ($178)

Classic black tee, Urban Outfitters ($50)

These ankle booties are the perfect height. We love how the low, boxy heel offers support, while the side-slits allow for more flexible movement (if you like to get your groove on, you'll appreciate this), two fundamental features for any festival free-spirit. The feminine cut can complement a casual daytime look, or could dress up a cute dress to achieve a more sophisticated style.
