This week, J.Renee had the honor of volunteering with Metrocrest Social Services (MSS), an organization whose mission is to provide emergency aid and financial education services in order to move families towards self sufficiency. They serve families in Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Addison and Coppell, Texas.
Our J.Renee team was delighted to serve with them and hand out toys, gifts, coats, food and shoes to local families in Denton County. This incredible night of giving is made possible by the generosity of the MSS staff and volunteers.
From food to bicycles, jewelry and much more, it was humbling to see all the donations raised to help these families during the holidays! The staff at MSS worked tirelessly to ensure that all families had the opportunity to have Christmas in their homes regardless of their financial situations.
It was extraordinary to see so many people pull together to serve others, reminding us what this holiday season is all about!
Each year J.Renee purchases and donates shoes for this holiday event. This year we purchased nearly 200 pairs of shoes!!!
Our staff proudly served in the holiday store and helped over 100 families pick out gifts for Christmas. We had a great time helping people shop, carrying their gifts to the car, and restocking the tables in the store.
Thanks to Metrocrest Social Services for all the hard work you are doing for the community! We are proud and thankful to serve alongside you!
It’s holiday season and it’s time for parties, family time and gorgeous shoes galore! I love holiday season because it is one of few times that you can frost yourself in diamonds, sequins, glam fabrics, gold and jewel tones–sometimes all in the same outfit! OK maybe that is a tad far, but I love, love, love the holiday time and all the lovely outfit possibilities.
With our new Glamour Collection, we pulled together some of our favorite sparkly shoe pieces to make adding the finishing touches to your holiday ensemble effortless!
In our collection we feature a wide selection of glam fabrics, jewel embellishments, lace, reds, golds and sequin-covered shoes. All of these dazzling shoes provide the perfect glitz and glam needed to capture the attention at any holiday gathering!
We have put together 3 different holiday looks to get you inspired in creating your own look for this season’s parties.
I am in heart with Gilden, our pointed-toe slingback crafted with a sexy see-through vinyl dripping in gold glam fabric. It creates a luxurious and elegant presence at any get together. Gilden can act as a neutral or a statement all its own as it perfectly pairs with almost any color or pattern. This outfit is paired with our J.Renee leaf fabric handbag with shimmering crinkle foil texture.
Our J.Renee Kaylee pump creates an ultra feminine and flirtatious look with its lace construction and satin bow embellishment alongside its sleek silhouette. Kaylee is paired with an elegant cocktail dress and slight gold touches for sophistication making for the a high class appearance. Our open-toe pump is paired with our glitter fabric handbag in gold.
Hello, lady in RED! If you are hitting the town for holiday parties this ensemble is sexy and seductive with its bodycon black dress and red accessories. This commanding look is paired with our pleated satin slingback, Gloria, in red with smooth satin finishes in the toe, bow embellishment and heel. Top this head-turning look with red lipstick and our J.Renee satin handbag with lace overlay. Go big and go bold!

Life travels fast. So quickly in fact, that it’s hard to take the time to reflect on the many things that we are thankful for. That’s why Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it officially begins a season of gratefulness and joy. So you’ll have to excuse me if I get too sappy (and I’ll try not to get toooo sappy) as I recognize a couple things I am humbled by and thankful for.
Thank you for the support you have given us all these years. You are so loyal to the J.Renee brand and we are honored that you have allowed us the opportunity to make you look as fabulous as we know you deserve to feel!
We are thankful to the staff at J.Renee, the family we have formed with one another and the impact we have all made on each other’s lives. Each and every person at JR puts their heart and sole (hee hee!) into their craft and creativity here and we are inspired and thankful for that dedication and for each other.
Thanksgiving ALSO happens to be one of my very favorite holidays, not only because we spend time sharing memories, but all the FOOD we consume during it!!! So no matter how many times you say you are going to not eat “too much,” we all know TDay is about chowing down, napping, chowing down, football, napping again (probably through football unless you live in Dallas like us and it’s time to cheer on the Cowboys), wine and nap. *REPEAT*
We have put together a few outfit inspirations that will keep you looking on trend and comfortable as you chow, nap, and watch football.
Here we go!
Turkey Option #1
Ladies- leggings are your best friend on a heavy meal-eating, lounging, visiting and people-seeing kind of day. They offer needed stretch without losing shape which is a must-have for today. Leggings don’t have to be dull either, you can jazz them up with standout designs, making your entire outfit, or you can sport solid staples to layer on top of as well. We layered this gem with an oversized, breezy dark top. There is nothing worse than gravy stains so, ladies, my advice is to pick a dark color OR have a scarf handy that not only adds a pop of color but can hide anything you don’t want to be seen. #Genius. We paired this casual, yet fashion-forward look, with our beloved, Tolley. She offers a casual look while providing a trendy edge with stud detailing and a slight western-style heel. Complete the look with our J.Renee laser cut handbag.
Turkey Option #2
If you are heading to a more dressy Thanksgiving dinner not to worry- you can still look sophisticated and comfortable. Here, we selected a loose-fitting sweater dress with delicate touches of lace on the sleeves. You can always throw on a pair of tights with this look to help keep your lines clean and stay warm. We paired our dressy Thanksgiving look with a black J.Renee clutch, simple yet elegant earrings and the sexy sky high Solvay crafted with eel skin to give you a polished and luxurious style!
Turkey Option #3
Up last we have another go-to casual family fun ensemble. Here is the secret hint in this look, friends…High-waisted jeans. These are wonderful especially on a day like Tday. This secret weapon keeps everything tucked in and secure while still looking on point with trends of the season. We paired this with a loose dark colored tank which is a staple in most closets, an oversized tribal sweater and accessorized with a large J.Renee handbag with embroidered flowers for a touch of color. The Ruso finishes the look with an understated yet fashionable appearance!
J.Renee’s, Ruso, in black and handbag.
So there you have it–tips on easy ways to dress for Thanksgiving and be comfortable without sacrificing style! Remember to keep the clothing dark, find staples that stretch and oversized is your best friend on this holiday.
So never fear the turkey and all the trimmings because it is a day of thankfulness, family and friends and make it a holiday to remember!
We are in love with the new look of Floretta, our pointed-toe slingback, in gorgeous new holiday colors of midnight blue, crimson and classic black.
Floretta, with her classic silhouette and touches of gold glam, adds sophistication to any outfit without sacrificing comfort due to her low heel and adjustable strap. The sleek pointed toe gives any outfit an understated yet glamorous look.
Take a look at our new crimson Floretta. With weather getting cold and snow soon to follow, you don’t want to sacrifice style with your large overcoat. Floretta keeps staying warm feminine and elegant, especially when paired with a classic clutch and simple jewelry pieces.
If you are a working girl and need a staple and transitional heel that will pair with your pencil skirts, slacks and blazers, this slingback is the perfect accessory. With its midnight blue hue, this gorgeous pointed-toe pump adds a hint of color and gives your work ensemble a fashion forward twist so you can step up with confidence. I completed the look with our snake print fabric handbag,
If you are like me, you need a shoe that can take your everyday dark denim and pea coat up a notch. Floretta, in classic black, is my go-to pump because it complements any casual outfit. Below I paired it with a neutral classic coat, denim, white button up and accessorized with a pop of color in my scarf. I topped my classy ensemble with my J.Renee eel skin clutch handbag. I love how this simple outfit, that consists of easy staples you already have in your closet, can look so elegant by adding touches of the right accessories.
For the second year in a row, J.Renee supported CC’s Sisters in their walk against breast cancer at the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60-mile walk. This cause hits close to home in the JR family as we honored our dear friend, Cindy Colangelo. She bravely defeated breast cancer several times before passing this year. To show our love for the Colangelo family and support for the ongoing battle against the disease, we cheered on CC’s Sisters and all Komen 3-day participants.
Did you know that 75 percent of the net proceeds raised by the Komen 3-Day help fund national research and large public health outreach programs? In addition, the remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs! We are kicking cancer 60 miles at a time! #3Days #WalkingForChange
The Sisters are fearless and have joined together to do what they can to raise money for breast cancer research. In only TWO YEARS they have raised more than $125,000 through the support of friends, family and strangers they have inspired along the way. How encouraging to see so many rally around this team and give generously to fight this devastating disease! Even though Cindy has passed, she continues to fight cancer through her family, friends and others she never even met. Her footprint and mark on breast cancer awareness is magnificent and J.Renee will continue to honor her brave legacy. This year alone, the incredible efforts of CC ‘s Sisters have raised over $60,000 for breast cancer research while at the same time raising awareness. #Fierce #Fighters
We had lots of laughs and cheers as we supported and handed water out to all the pink and white festive participants! Who said fighting breast cancer couldn’t look fabulous
To outwardly show our support, the J.Renee staff proudly donned white and pink shirts with a Marilyn Monroe quote on the back. We know that if you “give a girl the right shoes, she can conquer the world,” even breast cancer.
People are always saying this or that is the new black but let’s be real…There is never a solid substitute to the elegance and commanding presence that black provides.
Black is a color that can transition from casual to night-out attire by changing accessories or with the switch of a shoe.
Take this ensemble. This simple black tee, skinny jean and oversized belt could easily be worn during the day with your favorite flats. Take the same outfit and throw on your favorite J.Renee Adan pumps, with its gold sculpted heel and a handbag to add a touch of color and you instantly have a sexy outfit fit for a night out with the gals.
As the weather gets cooler, add elegant touches to dress up black basics like your go-to leggings, sweater and black overcoat. With a simple pop of color from your scarf, sleek handbag and our J.Renee Nall, with its suede upper, patent heel and embroidered flowers, you can add a fashion forward twist on your everyday loves that’s easy and cost effective.
If you are a woman who loves to stay on the cutting edge of trends then Rilla is your new best friend. This open-toe beauty is a statement piece to any outfit this season. Pair her easily with leather pants and blazers with cooler weather or in transition times with a pair of shorts. Rilla’s edgy silhouette and woodgrain Tejas leather makes any outfit command attention whether she is in black or any color under the sun. #Fierce
For your more laid back, yet still stylish, days–zip into Artie. This gem is great over your black skinny jeans or leggings with an oversized sweater or blouse. Don’t forget to accessorize with different prints and color to add variety to your look. Artie’s details like the stacked heel and studded side gives you just the style you need to keep comfortable looking fashionable.
The ever classic black pump…If you are a woman and a variation of a black pump is not in your closet, stop reading immediately and go purchase one! Closets should automatically come with a black pump because they are a girl’s most trusted friend. They will never let you down no matter the occasion as they can go with you to work, cocktail parties, lunch with friends, date nights, and even with your favorite tee and ripped jeans when you head to the movies.
Your black pump is the grand finale and an absolute must no matter the season. It is a shoe that will always take any outfit you put together to the next level and set a precedence of classiness that no other shoe can.
The beauty and classic feel of black is something that will never go out of style. Its chameleon-like versatility means it can be dressed up or down with the switch of an accessory, solidifying its role in fashion and in your closet. This season, get outside your (shoe) box and add some new twists to black like woodgrain leather, cheetah heels, studded sides, embellishments, cutouts and exotically embossed leathers. Keep your black always feeling like the new black!
Fashion weeks across the country have been in full effect and runways have been dripping in gorgeous colors and styles.
I selected a few of our favorite trends that are inspiring the designers in our office. Check out some of the style boards that are trending for JR.
You know how much we love animal prints so this season we are wild at heart. We are obsessed with cheetah, reptile and all kinds of exotic inspired styles. We love how these prints and embossed leathers can be worn as a neutral with pops of color or as a statement all on its own. Warm colors of reds and chocolates are gorgeous for fall and into winter!
We are all strong women and when you hit the office you want to look as confident as you feel! We are loving strong and powerful looks that can transition from desk to a night out with the girls!
Last up we have a style board for the women of elegance. We love the romantic glitter, glam and diamonds of this vintage inspired board. Flowy and flirty looks are classic and gorgeous for this season and into the next with glamorous soft and jewel tone colors.
Our crew had a fabulous time in New York City at Fashion Week where runways were dripping in all the latest fashions in apparel, accessories and our all time favorites, SHOES!!!
We were honored to be a part of Malan Breton’s Collection to showcase some our gorgeous items for the upcoming seasons. His vision of making women feel fabulous with affordable, yet fashion forward, shoes made it a perfect runway combination!
Our eelskin Bezel pump dazzled alongside evening wear, business savvy attire and trendsetting styles.
The Kinsley slingback was a showstopper on the runway adding pops of color to Malan Breton’s fabulous black and white runway and gorgeous Spring Collection.
Breton’s sleek and innovative designs were accessorized beautifully with Kinsley’s edge and sophistication to the black and white themed runway.
We could not have been more thrilled to have been a part of this incredible experience at fashion week with the amazing Malan Breton. We were excited to be a part of a line that values the women of today and works to make them feel as fabulous as they are!
