A Paramount Getaway

Paramount 300x199 A Paramount Getaway

Paramountsofa 210x300 A Paramount GetawayI left on a jet plane for a quick dose of New York style and a Lincoln Town Car to Times Square landed me smack dab in the middle of it all. I arrived at the Paramount Hotel, half a block from Broadway ready for an unmatched taste of NYC, and experienced a rare gem in the heart of the city. After a few drinks at the Library Bar I made my way to my room where I drank in the room’s artistic red accents, and savored this escape to the core of the Big Apple. The Paramount Hotel is carefully nestled in the middle of the theater district, steps away from Madison and Fifth Avenue, and Restaurant Row.

As I stared out at the almost electric view from my window pane, the excitement of the city tickled every fun and exciting bone in my body. As one of Manhattan’s premier lifestyle destinations, this fabulous fashionable boutique hotel is the perfect place for a getaway in the city. The Paramount is the kind of place one falls rekindles or finds their love for the city that never sleeps. Celebrating over eight decades in the heart of the city, the newly renovated hotel’s modern accents and metropolis accessibility had me immersed in the fantasy world of New York City.

After a day of non-stop shopping from Madison to Fifth and back, I sauntered back to my room at the Paramount, kicked off my heels, and floated on a cloud of down comforters and plush pillows. Gazing around at this New York landmark’s stature I imagined myself as the modern Holly Golightly. I wanted to toss on a high thread count bed sheet toga, slip my iPod onto the docket, invite a few friends over, and have a conga line parade around the room, as I sipped on a glass of bourbon. This was the perfect beginning to my most recent New York adventure, and parting was such sweet sorrow.

New York style, by Heather Williams

H Williams Gaia grey 381x400 New York style, by Heather Williams

Add some sexy flair to your footwear this year with designer Heather Williams‘ Spring 2010 collection. Drawing inspiration from a New Yorker’s life, Williams based her lasted designs off of popular landmarks in the Big Apple.

Splitting her time between New York and Milan, Williams embraces her surroundings fully. With her Spring collection, the designs are New York-inspired but are made with Italian leathers.

“I’ve been living a ‘double life’ in Milan and New York,” Williams said. “…And I’m always inspired by the environments that I live in… Translated to footwear, the new designs let the foot take center stage for a strong and sexy style.”

The architecturally savvy shoes are structured and edgy. The “Gaia” shoe ($740)  wraps the foot in sexy straps, while the blue-black “Jesse” shoe ($970) gives a tough leather-bound and snakeskin look.

Also great is the “Summit” ($715), which has a softer look and is perfect to pair with a khaki or jeans and a blazer.
