Blogger Spotlight: Lindsey Puls

machi footwear nyfw

Machi Footwear LOVES bloggers! We had a chance to meet up with a few of our favorites during NY Fashion Week. We thought you might want to get to know them better. First up is Lindsey Puls of Have Clothes Will Travel. She looked very pretty wearing a lace dress with a cream handbag and our floral print MIYA-3 heels after the Angel Sanchez fashion show.

Where do you live?

Princeton, New Jersey is currently my home base. However, that location is always changing. My husband and I are constantly on the move for his job, so we are bouncing from one end of the country/world to the next. (Our next big move will be after the holidays.)

What do you write about?

Have Clothes, Will Travel (my blog) is a mix of my outfit and travel posts. My outfit posts can range anywhere from evening gowns to geeky Star Wars dresses to sweaters and jeans… I never limit it myself when it comes

to personal style. I like to let my readers know how to recreate the looks, and what I think of the quality of the clothing I’m wearing, and what kind of event I’m wearing the outfit for.

As for the travel posts, those have been anywhere from Rome to India to fun things to do right here on the East Coast (I’m even working on a shark cage diving post from Cape Cod!). I’ll share fun little tidbits about the trips, and give advice to anyone looking to take a trip there themselves.

What has been your favorite part about New York Fashion Week this season?

Actually being able to attend it! Haha. Having not lived in the area very long, this was the first NYFW I was able to attend.

As far as shows go, though, Rodarte had my favorite spring collection. I’m still dying over those Mary Janes!


Who is your favorite designer?

Oh, that’s a tough one. But probably Caroline Herrera. I love the timelessness of her collections.


Describe your personal shoe style?

Quirky yet classic. I adore shoes that have a retro vibe to them, but I’m also not afraid to rock an eye-catching stiletto with a bright floral print.

autumn lin fashion show

We love scoping out the shows at NY Fashion Week. Machi Footwear loves working with designers directly for the runway even more! Check out Autumn Lin Kietponglerts collection for NYFW. You might know her as one of the top 3 finalists from Bravo TV and Rihanna‘s competition program “Styled to Rock”. She is also a multi-award winner from fashion competitions all over the world. Her signature detail is her manipulations with zippers.

Machi Footwear paired our edgy black Boadan and Gucia heels along with our Finn caged booties with Autumn Lin’s sculpted punk glam looks on her runway. The models worked the look with the perfect attitude. All-black ensembles may seem simple, but the basic color allows for dramatic silhouettes, textures and design lines.

Pop divas like Cher and Kylie Minogue already count themselves as fans of Autumn Lin Kietponglert and so do we!

NYFW Spring 2016 Report: Black White & Primary Colors

daniel silverstain ss16

nyfw blk white primary colorsIt is only two days into New York Fashion Week, but an early trend has emerged. Spring 2016 is about featuring bright, clean black and white silhouettes accented with primary colors. In designer Malan Breton’s case, he used the combination of black or white with color-blocked red, blue or green. For designer Daniel Silverstain, he used the color palette in retro pattern prints or with black or white garments with a pop color accessory. The shoes on the models followed suit. Models wore black or white heels that had primary colored straps to add interest to the foot.

Designing into the next season, you can easily adapt classic silhouettes or bodies in black or white. You can the update it with a pop color accessory or create a contrast detail in a primary color like a collar, a sleeve cuff or a hem.
