Check again! When it comes to music and style, Harley Viera-Newton is definitely one of our biggest inspirations, so we are more than excited to have her play for Shopcade’s holiday shopping event in NYC on December 12!

We managed to chat with her about Christmas gifts, her collaboration with Jay Z and his music label, and her hottest spots in London and New York!

With Christmas getting really close, we really have to start this interview with questions about presents! What has been the best present you have received?

My boyfriend designed a necklace for me with my best friend and I haven’t taken it off since. I love four-leaf clovers, and they made a little silver clover with H’s on each leaf. It’s amazing.

What would be your dream holiday destination? Would you prefer Santa’s village or someplace warm and sunny?

I’m a sucker for a beach.

Which film puts you in the spirit of Christmas?

Love Actually.

What are your favorite tunes for the festive season?

Mariah Carey, Wham, The Waitresses.

What is the one thing that you can’t have enough of during Christmas?

Mum’s cooking! Chocolate! Presents! Can Christmas be all year, please?


#Shopcade Goes West: Blogger Brunch in LA


Last week we kicked off a countdown to the launch of our Android and iOS (beta) apps with an intimate trendsetter brunch in West Hollywood, CA. What better to get everyone in the holiday shopping spirit than our fave LA fashion bloggers, delicious bites, and a sneak-peek of our new mobile features?!


Oh, look!! It’s Judy from Vogue Villain and Kat from Love and Ace looking all cute in their finest warm-weather attire. Guess sunglasses and “summer dresses” year round is one of the perks of West Coast livin’. :::sigh:::



The super scenic private roof deck of Petite Ermitage was our chill-spot for the daytime event. We couldn’t get enough of that view!!



Want to know how to spot a blogger? One word – Chanel. And, yes, that bag (all of them) is on our lust list. How about you??
