The holiday season is in full swing, and here at Tabitha Simmons, we are knee deep in shoes holiday preparation. Decorations are going up, cards are being written and gift lists are being compiled. To get into the holiday spirit, we thought we would show you tidbits of our holiday preparation!
Here in New York City, where we are based, the best decorators in town are the department stores. They are known for their elaborate window displays with interesting themes that get bigger and better each year. This year, one of our favorite retailers, Bergdorf Goodman featured yours truly in their display. ‘Hermione’, our Mary Jane flat in navy velvet, was nestled front and center in the snowy display.
To spread the holiday cheer, we decided to create our own holiday card. Sometimes the best gift during the holiday season is a simple gesture like a handwritten card. Who doesn’t love to get a card in the mail? This year’s card features our favorite red shoes of the season like ‘Bailey’, ‘Helouise’, ‘Alexa’ and ‘Harmony’.
Have you made your holiday wish list yet? Despite being employed here, ours always includes a pair of Tabitha Simmons shoes. W Magazine felt the same way and featured the ‘Clara’ in our exclusive Peruvian print (more on that print soon!) in “The Red Hot Hippie Gift Guide.” You can add this to your wish list or even check it off by visiting our shop page to get a pair of your own.
And as much as we love to get gifts, we love to give gifts too. From flowers to chocolates to shoes, we love to play Santa. One of Tabitha’s favorite gifts to give is a customized assortment from Aedes de Ventustas. New York Magazine featured Tabitha’s gift du jour in their recent story on gift giving where Tabitha responded “These are my favorite holiday gifts, as they put a great deal of time into the product selection and overall presentation.” To top if off, each box is adorned with a fresh flower arrangement.
Another gift we like to give is candy but not just any candy–British candy. Tabitha loves to include her English heritage in everything we do from design to branding so gifting isn’t any different. So instead of Snickers and Milky Ways, her sweet tooth was satisfied with Cadbury, Aero Bars and Turkish Delights. We wanted to feature these sweets in customized gift baskets so we headed to London Candy Co. in the West Village to stock up.
Hope you enjoyed the insights into our holiday. Happy decorating, writing, shopping and most importantly–Happy Holidays from the Tabitha Simmons Team!
