Bettye Collaboration with Shoe Designer Abbey Liebman

Hi guys! I am super, super excited to post the first of a 4 part collaboration series with shoe designer, Abbey Liebman for Bettye’s Fall ’17 Collection! Bettye shoes come in a variety of styles (as you will soon see!) I loved the process of this collaboration…from visiting her design studio, to looking at samples, to seeing the vintage and inspirational shoes she uses. In this first post, I am wearing rose-gold tassel loafer mules (slides…trend alert!) and Abbey is wearing black platform peep toe booties. I opted for an all black look, pairing my new favorite raw hem jeans (trend alert) with a black Marc Jacobs jacket I have had for 10 years (classics never go out)! These mules also come in black and burgundy- I am a big fan of burgundy for fall. Abbey opted for a downtown edgy look. It was a hot, sunny day shooting throughout the West Village and Greenwich Village. HUGE props to our photographer extraordinaire,  Alex Van, for capturing so many amazing pictures and for having an eye for locations!

Also, Abbey was just named the shoe designer for Bettye Muller shoes, so I have a feeling there might be more collaborations in the future 😉
