Last Thursday, I attended the ALDO x ELLE event in the city. The
event was for the new ALDO Rise collection with London designers Preen
in which shoe-addicts (like myself) was able to view the collection, sip
on some champagne and even purchase some of the shoes before it became
available online. To come along with me to share this experience was my
two friends Gwen and Meriangie (hi, guys!). We danced along with the
in-house DJ (who was amazing), tried on some shoes, met some new friends
and  took some goofy pics in the photo booth. Very fun night.

This is the fourth collaboration between the two companies and this collection was inspired by the 1978 movie Jubilee
by Derek Jarman. These shoes were first shown to the world on the
runway during Preen’s FW13 show during London Fashion Week and now they
are available in stores and online. These edgy, feminine styles retail from $160 to $230. My favorite shoe from the collection is Fanni,
which is a “shootie” that has a zipper and belt buckles wrapped around
the shoe. It comes in either black or red and I absolutely love the shoe
in red, rather than black. May I also mention that all their shoes are
pointy-toed? Down below is some pictures I took at the event.

My fave from the collection, the Fanni shootie in red.

Will you be buying from the ALDO Rise x Preen collection? If so, what shoes will you be rocking this holiday season?
