Behind the Scenes: Costa Rica Spring Shoot Day 2

On day 2 of our spring shoot, we headed to the beaches of beautiful Manuel Antonio in Puerto Quepos. Our first location was a little bit of a hike, but it was well worth it. The payoff was this gorgeous secluded beach at the end of the trail called Playa Biesanz. It was so peaceful and we highly recommend it for a nice morning hike and even a beachside jog along the lovely cove.

We then headed out to the main beach which is a bit more of a tourist spot. The streets are lined with lots of shops, restaurants and bars, making Manuel Antionio Beach the perfect spot to spend an entire day. You can even learn how to surf with one of the many surf instructors lining the beach.

Neons: Whether you go bold with a statement piece or just a pop accent, neons are a must this spring/summer! The easiest way to add in a dose of bright color is through accessories. Try a fun neon clutch or cocktail ring to give your look a stylish focal point.

Prom:  With prom season upon us, we couldn’t pass up all the amazing evening dresses we currently have on the site! We’re particularly loving color dresses and one-shoulder silhouettes for prom this year. Don’t forget that we have an entire Prom Shop so you can find the perfect head-to-toe outfit for the big night!

Stripes: Not just in the nautical realm, stripes are a perennial favorite that’s easy to wear with anything. Try a casual striped tee on the weekends or throw on a blazer over a striped V-neck for a cool look.

Behind the Scenes: Downtown Vegas Spring Shoot

As you may know, the Zappos Family is going to be moving our headquarters to downtown Las Vegas in a couple of years. We’re so excited about the growing community downtown; we thought what better place to do a fun photo shoot than our own backyard?

For this shoot, we went to a couple of cool spots downtown, including the Hogs n’ Heffers bar, Downtown Cocktail Room, Triple George, and the Ogden. We thought it would be fun  to show another side of Vegas off the Strip!

We had lots of fun during the shoot, and we're so excited to show a side of Las Vegas that some people may not even know exists. Keep an eye out for these photos on our Shop By pages and homepage soon!

Stylist's Faves: Spring Flats

I love my flats. With all the running around I do as a mom, they are my ultimate go-to shoes! With so many variations from ballerina flats, to printed, to peep toe flats, a girl really has lots of fun options these days.

Printed flats in particular, are my latest shoe obsessions. You can go girly with a floral print or bow detailing, sassy with a leopard print and nautical with stripes. Below are just a couple of my favorites. It's so hard to choose!

Behind the Scenes: Costa Rica Spring Shoot Day 1

For day one of our Costa Rica shoot, we took to Escazu, a province in the capital city of San Jose. This town is filled with so much charm and the people are so friendly and warm. It made for a wonderful day of shooting lifestyle and flat shots for spring.

We found some really cool street scenes, an old church in the middle of town, and best of all, a view to die for on top of a hill overlooking San Jose. There’s a quaint, rustic restaurant up there called Tiquicia. If you’re ever in San Jose, this place is a must stop. They have THE most amazing tilapia we have ever had as well as other traditional Costa Rican dishes that are absolutely delicious. And the view…well, it speaks for itself!

 Check out some highlights from day 1:

Weekly Trends Feature: Nudes, Glitter & Plaid

Each week in our Shop By pages, we feature some of our favorite trends to keep you in the know during your shopping experience. This week, our featured trends, nudes, glitter and plaid, are very different from each other yet each is a must-have in its own right. 

glitter, nudes, plaid, shop by, shop by trends, weekly trends, weekly trends feature, zappos style team, zappos stylists

Nudes: We love all the chic and subdued shades out there right now. The trick to wearing nude shades is to complement your skin tone. Fair-skinned girls should opt for more rose or pink-toned nudes. Medium-skinned ladies, go for nudes with gold undertones. Dark or olive skin looks amazing against bronze-nude tones.

Glitter: You know the saying, too much of a good thing is NOT a good thing? The same goes for glitter. To look tastefully chic, keep your glitter item to a single item, whether it’s the focal point (like the dress featured above), or a sparkling accent (like a glitter shoe or clutch). It’s important to not go overboard with this trend.

Plaid: Now for the fellas! Plaid has always been our favorite go-to print for guys. It’s easy to wear, and you can wear it either on your top, bottom or as a cool trim or accent. Want a more fun way to wear plaid? Try wearing a plaid blazer to a daytime party or wedding to keep things interesting!
