Host a Party, Earn Free Shoes

Image

 

The 2014 collection has been released, and you can see them for yourself by contacting a Fashion Agent near you. fibi & clo is not like a regular designer shoe company. We do not sell our shoes through traditional retail, such as through Bloomingdales or Nordstroms. We showcase our sandals through a nationwide network of talented independent Fashion Agents. The best way to view our sandals is by hosting your own shoe party!

There is nothing more fun than a shoe party. Gather your friends for drinks, shoes and fun. And earn free shoes by doing it! To find a Fashion Agent near you, please email us at info@fibiandclo.com

The 2014 collection was inspired by our designer’s most recent trip to Morocco.

“Every year I find great joy in seeking out special places that not only inspire me, but teach me about the culture via the experience. This year’s journey to Morocco took me through rows of Souks as far as the eye could see, vintage pieces rich in history, and a world of color to forever delight your eyes. I hope you love the 2014 line as much as I loved the path that led me to creating it.”

We look forward to sharing our company, and the 2014 collection with you. 

Fancy for Floral

Forget about the Polar Vortex, and the freezing temps outside!!! Let’s think about more pleasant things, like flowers and sandals. 

Thanks to thecoralcourt.com for this wonderful picture and post featuring our Smoke Cascade Sandal. Our sandals are paired brilliantly with an amazing floral legging, and a cable knit sweater with a large enough weave pattern to soften up the design.

Eating Right to Look and Feel Your Best

You’ll often find fashion finds and tips on this blog, but for today I want to go a little deeper and explore another topic that’s close to my heart: eating! Yes, I’m talking about food!

What you eat has a profound impact on how you feel, look and carry yourself. And because I’m not a proponent of starving yourself, I like to seek out recipes that taste good and make you feel good too. You can look great and feel great at any size when you eat healthy. There’s a glow and sparkle in your eye, and a bounce in your step, when you eat tasty, yet nutritious foods.

An easy way to start controlling the types of foods you eat is through cookbooks. Without instructions, I can’t do anything in the kitchen. So I turned to my favorite chef, Thomas Keller’s book, Ad Hoc and got to work. While some options in this cookbook border on the decadent, there are a lot of healthy and quick options that can satisfy any taste bud. So get inspired, grab a cook book, and get your year started on the right foot.

Two Fashion Resolutions You Should Keep.

Mix your metals.

It’s time to ditch the mentality that you can only wear silver with silver, and gold with gold. Silver, Gold, Bronze, Rose Gold… These metallics look amazing when mixed properly.

It’s all about color

Cobalt Blue, Sea Foam Green… Ditch the black and grey and put on some eye-catching color. You were meant to show your sparkle, and the right color top or dress can make that happen.

Go bold for 2014.

What to wear New Years.

Figuring out what to wear New Year’s Eve can be just as frustrating as deciding what to do! Luckily, I’ve found the cutest outfit ideas on Pinterest. I really wanted to share it with y’all in hopes of making your New Year’s outfit hunt that much easier. I love a touch of sparkle and think this is the perfect occasion to add some sparkle into your outfit. Shine bright into 2014!

2013… It’s a wrap. Hello, 2014.

As the year comes to a close, I’d like to reflect back on how successful the Independent Fashion Agents (IFA) have been in their pursuits. We’ve gone through ups and downs and have come out stronger than ever. I am so grateful for each and every one of you. All of your efforts are unique and special to me. If one thing is for sure, I know 2014 has something special in store for us: success and a pinch of sparkles!

2013 fibi fest. A giant shoe party.

Wear some bling, and eat some bling this holiday season.

Wear some bling, and eat some bling this holiday season.

We are all about sparkle at fibi & clo, and this holiday season is no exception. An easy way to brighten up your holiday parties is through creative pastries. These glittered cupcakes add a nice touch to your table spread. Take your traditional pastry recipes and top them off with some gold or silver candy glitter or balls. When you present them at your holiday party or shoe party, wear your Cascade sandals for a “wow” entrance. It’s that little touch of sparkle that makes all the difference.

New York Fashion Week 2013

 
AnaLiza and her friends hit up New York’s Fashion Week a couple weeks ago. Her two favorite runway shows were Mara Hoffman and Herve Leger. “Sparkle was the highlight at Herve Leger. And bold colors, mixed patterns and metallics caught my eye at Mara Hoffman.”
 
Ladies, this is good news for us because it proves that bling is and always will be on trend. And when it comes to the bold colors and patterns of the season, you can be sure that statement making sandals will seal the deal.

French Honeymoon!

Hi friends…wow..2012 is flying by! So much has happened since my last post. fibi & clo’s parents got married!! On May 5th, Michael and I tied the knot in Austin, Texas surrounded by our closest friends and family. Thank you to everyone who helped make our day truly special plus The Nichols Photography (www.jnicholsphoto.com) for capturing all the wonderful memories and Misty Duncan (www.mistyduncanevents.com) for being the best wedding planner in the world, collaborating and being patient with me and all my wackadoo ideas!

After the wedding, Michael and I set off on our honeymoon to Paris and the French Riviera. He planned the whole thing all by himself! I’m a lucky girl 😉 Some of the Paris highlights were vintage clothes shopping, macaroons (salted caramel were our fave), and the Louvre and Tower of course! Then we headed to the South of France and ventured our way through Nice, Monaco (where to our surprise the Historique Grand Prix was going on!), Eze (where you’ll see the pic of the giant Chess board in someone’s back yard), Saint Tropez, Cannes and Cap d’Antibes.

Another highlight was getting to stay at the beautiful Belles Rives in Cap d’Antibes (www.bellesrives.com). F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald called this place home for many summers! Just walking into this beautifully grand hotel you can feel the rich history. The staff was also super friendly and just very down-to-earth. It was our last stop on our honeymoon and even though I was sad to go, it was the perfect breathtaking view to soak in before heading back to reality and NYC.

Japanese/Chinese Thanksgiving

As this year comes to a close, I am reflecting on all the blessings we’ve had this year. fibi & clo grew from one rep to almost 40, we had our first annual fibi & clo fest, we gained a lot of new fans and the feedback on the shoes overall has been incredible. We also had the opportunity to go back to China to check on our factories and work on some new development for 2012! We left on Thanksgiving morning and stopped in Tokyo, Japan for a couple of days. We also stopped by Shanghai, which I’d been wanting to see for a long time. They used to call it the Paris of the East and rightfully so, the buildings are stunning and the detailed architecture is pure perfection. It was an exhausting 11-day trip, but I was able to get a lot of work done. I’m hopeful that 2012 will bring much success for our fashion agents and that the new line will bring a lot of excitement for our fans. We’ll have some more new styles and wedges to come and (fingers crossed) they’ll be ready in May! In the meantime, I wish you all a happy holiday season and a happy new year! Cheers! xoxo, analiza.
