DSW threw a beautiful holiday event at the exlcusive San Vicente Bungalows in West Hollywood. A mix of fashionistas and media enjoyed a beautiful celebration of DSW’s new holiday collaborations and the impressive 5 million shoes donated to Soles4Souls. The curated campaign consists of footwear and accessories that aim to celebrate the start of the holidays this season. DSW collaborated with Brad Goreski, Whitney Port, and Myka Meier in their vision to ensure the collection featured holiday party-ready, cozy styles, and affordable gifts for everyone this holiday season. Due to the donations recieved through DSW, Soles4Souls has been able to distribute more than 73 million pairs of shoes and pieces of clothing in 129 countries since 2006. 

San Vicente Bungalows are a hidden Hollywood treasure, and DSW planned such a perfect event to usher us all into the holidays. With a DJ on tunes all night, guests were treated to a luxurious scarf which was personalized as a party favor. Such an innovative idea was a nice touch, and sure to grace everyone’s neck this winter as we gear up to board flights to see our loved ones. With a vaccination check, guests felt safe in the open and warm environment DSW curated for their invitees. Upon entering a beautiful white box tied with a bow was set up to accept shoe donations. With light bites and sweets to set the mood, it was an evening of easy banter and chatter as life almost felt completley normal. DSW further ensured the safety of their guests by providing Lyft codes for anyone imbibing from the open bar. A couple glasses of champagne and a safe ride home made the event feel like a holiday dream. Our favorite accessory from the new holiday collection is the suede and faux fur ear muff from Ugg. We’re not going to lie, we might also have been smitten by DSW’s Whitney Port pick of shoes, with Steve Madden’s “Vielo Bootie,” in black of course (like our soul).
