We are all about women empowerment and the feel of “Proud to be a Woman”, after all, Behind the Scenes NYC was founded by the Brazilian entrepreneur and dreamer, Fê Paronetto. She wanted to show people what New York City is really about, away from the touristy scene.

Our Contributor, Laura Peruchi, interviewed Sofia Oliveira, from Josefinas Portugal!


Josefinas is a luxury shoes company from Portugal that started online in Europe. They’ve just opened last month their first flagship store in New York City.

The flats and the sneakers are handmade, which certainly makes the shoes undoubtedly special and unique. Plus, Josefinas’ story and trajectory is surely inspirational.

The quote ‘Never give up’ has always defined the brand’s path.

Filipa Júlio, the Founder, named the brand after her grandmother. She made Filipa’s life a special adventure, especially when she took her to ballet class as a kid.

We talked with Sofia Oliveira, one of the Co-Founders that joined Filipa in her journey. She graduated in Communications & Press Relations, but she always loved Fashion and Josefinas was a natural step in her career.

Along with Filipa and Maria Cunha, she’s part of the team that founded Josefinas.

She explains: “Josefinas was founded in 2013 from a woman’s dream – Filipa – and other women that joined her. Our shoes were created to inspire women to achieve their dreams. It’s a woman’s dream for women”.


How is the manufacturing process of Josefinas’ shoes?

We are obsessed with savoir-faire – a French expression that means “expertise”. That’s why each Josefinas’ pair of shoes is so special. They are all individually handmade by expert craftsmen based in Portugal.

Can you explain a little bit about Josefinas’ values and philosophy?

Josefinas has three main values.

First, is the savoir-faire. We work with the best Portuguese craftsmen to create Josefinas’ magic. The hands of these artists have years of history in the art of making shoes. They have passion and pride in creating. Naturally, they create pieces of art.

Our second value is women empowerment. We believe in women power. Our mission is inspiring women to believe in their dreams until they come true. Where can your Josefinas can take you? Wherever you want them to!

Last but not least, we have the Customer’s “WOW”. We believe that our Customers are the best in the world, that’s why we believe in always exceeding their expectations. We have a person focused on this: our Chief Officer of Customer Delight.

What about the Josefinas’ styles? What’s your favorite? 

Honestly, it’s impossible to have just one favorite. All styles are beautiful! Currently, I am obsessed with Josefinas’ Louise Green Tree, Cleopatra Classic Black and the Red Lisbon.

Josefinas believes in women empowerment and that it’s not necessary to wear high heels to be amazing, right? 

It’s important – and we believe – that women should feel good with themselves. They have to believe, feel and use their power. There is nothing stronger than women empowerment! We are a live example of that.

Why did you chose New York City to open the first Josefinas flagship? 

Why NOT New York City? The United States is an important market for Josefinas and it’s the perfect place to affirm us as luxury brand.

For you, in which way is Josefinas’ shoes and New York women related?

It’s excellent, not just for New York women, but also for women around the world. In addition to appreciating the quality and design of Josefinas’ shoes, they also connect with the brand’s values and purpose. This makes us extremely proud.

To finish, what are your favorites spots in New York?

I’m going to suggest three places to eat that I simply love: The Butcher’s Daughter – I can’t highlight anything specific, because I adore everything about them; Rubirosa has the most divine pizza and By Chloe because of it’s classic vegan burger.

One of our Contributors, Helenita Salom, visited her favorite all natural beauty store in the West Village.

I came across CAP Beauty a few weeks ago on my quest to dig deeper to find simple, yet effective, chemical free products that are healthy and clean.

There are so many different options out there, specially in NYC – from your local pharmacy to Sephora, that offer “natural” products. But, upon reading the labels I still found myself confused by many of the synthetic ingredients found in these products.

Eager to find a trusted source, I began doing a little research and, in no time, discovered CAP Beauty.

CAP Beauty first opened its doors in February 2015 by co-founders Kerrilynn Pamer and Cindy DiPrima.

They realized they weren’t just “another beauty store in NYC” that carried all 100% natural, synthetic free beauty products. They were actually the first and only store in Manhattan to carry only products that are all completely natural! The space is also absolutely beautiful, both inside and out.

Having shopped here twice now, I have been blown away by the warmth and knowledge of the entire staff. They are friendly, readily available and extremely knowledgeable on each of the beauty lines they carry.

The first time I went into the store I was helped by Karrilynn Pamer herself, and was instantly at ease with the way she addressed my concerns and made suggestions according to what I was looking for.

One of my favorite products I purchased is the MUN No. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum.  A serum I can apply with my moisturizer both day and night containing just three but very potent ingredients: Prickly Pear Seed, Argan Oil and Rose Essential Oil.

After just a few weeks of using the serum I notice a difference in the way my skin feels and can already tell it will become a staple in my beauty routine.

CAP Beauty also offers spa services as well as a variety of teas, adaptogens, honeys and much more!

Can’t wait to go there again! I loved this first 100% Natural Beauty Store in NYC.

There is a great little vintage store in Williamsburg named Antoinette Brooklyn that is definitely worth a visit! If you are a vintage addict always in search for your next great finding, then you’ll love this place.

The owner is called Lexi. The store’s name is in homage to her mother, Antoinette.

Her mom worked during the 1950’s with Lilly Daché, a French fashion designer. Due to the nature of her work, with time she put together an amazing wardrobe, where most of the pieces came from. It was mostly was ‘built’ up between the decades of 1950’s and 1990’s. So, you’ll surely find a huge variety of pieces that fit your own style!

Therefore, every piece has its own little secret story behind it! We love these types of stores! Pieces are unique, with character, with a special history.

Even though they are second hand pieces, they are all impeccably clean, pressed and conserved. So, you may be sure not to worry!

The store sells primarily women’s clothes, but you are able to find some very few pieces for the stylish guys out there! Plus, they also have a range of accessories, gift and a few local designer stuff.

After passing by this vintage secret shop, be sure to walk around a bit!

Grab some healthy lunch at Sunday in Brooklyn, where the cool Brooklyn kids hang. If it’s closer to late afternoon, go for some tacos and cocktails at Café de la Esquina!

To create the perfect shopping itinerary for you to purchase in the best vintage store and make the best of your time, contact our experts to curate it for you!

I’m totally in love with everything at Nili Lotan!

The Israeli designer, Nili Lotan, moved to New York City in 1980. She worked as a Senior Design Director for several leading fashion companies, including Ralph Lauren and Nautica.

Therefore, after several years and greatly acquired experiences, Nili decided to launch her own eponymous label. Nili’s simple design philosophy is pure and sophisticated. Less is definitely more.

In addition, Nili says:

“A woman’s wardrobe should reflect her lifestyle and function as an extension of who she is.”

Perfectly and simply said, right? The more our wardrobe reflects our style, the better and more confident we fell in work and life situations.

The tops, shirts, t-shirts, dresses, jeans, scarves are all amazing. We have to confess that we are deeply in love with the eco baby alpaca sweaters. You can shop them all online.

Granted that Nili loves and appreciates art, she often exhibits artwork in the store.

Moreover, you will also find a collection of rare books on topics ranging from film, architecture, photography and design.

“Nili’s collections has been equally well received by the market and editors alike. Her pieces regularly feature in top fashion and lifestyle publications like VOGUE, Harper’s Bazaar, WSJ.

Furthermore, over the years, Nili’s designs have accrued a glittering list of dedicated followers including Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Christy Turlington, Jennifer Lawrence, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore, and Karolina Kurkova, among many more.”

Since you’re passing through TriBeCa, you might want to explore it a bit! Stop for a great coffee and support Hugh Jackman’s beautiful cause at Laughing Man Tea & Coffee. Plus, go for a drink at the super traditional, Tiny’s or at the coveted Paul’s Cocktail Lounge.

And still, stroll through a New York City style alley.

Hours: See online for different locations.

Locations:
188 Duane Street, Tribeca
87 Mercer Street, SoHo
38 Main Street, East Hampton

The Nomad Truck: Wandering Fashion Boutique For Boho Lovers

Shop Ladies Nomad Truck NYC

Have you heard of The Nomad Truck? It’s a wandering fashion boutique that cruises New York City in great style!

UNFORTUNATELY THIS PROJECT WAS TERMINATED!

This Nomad Truck we’re talking about is actually a “wandering fashion boutique offering a handpicked selection of ladies’ fashions from the back of a retrofitted delivery truck”.

You’ll be able to find amazing curated items from boho fashion pieces, to handmade jewelry. They are all carefully selected by he Founder, Jessie Goldenberg.

It’s definitely a different shopping experience and we incentivize you to try it!

Furthermore,  keep your eyes opened for the truck can be found in diverse locations. From street fairs, flea markets and colleges, too popping up on the streets of Flatiron, Soho, the Village, Williamsburg, and other parts of the city!

Take a look online to find our where she’ll be parking next, during the week!

A bit more about how it all started:

Shop Ladies Nomad Truck NYC Streets

“In 2013, I quit my full time job and bought a 24-foot aluminum box truck which I fittingly named Bertha. My 5-foot 2-inch stature needed two pillows to reach the gas and brake petals on Bertha. But, ask anyone around, I drove her like a champ.

The goal was to convert Bertha into a bohemian boutique-on-wheels. While the idea sounds like it came to me on a whim, many sleepless nights pouring over a business plan. And still, strategizing over fundraising, and maneuvering the intricate details of starting a business ensued.

The build out was a true labor of love with my family and friends donating their nights and weekends, time and skill. This was to make true this far-fetched idea I had of a traveling store a la gypsy caravan.

I will never be able to thank them enough. Nomad – The Wandering Fashion Boutique, took her maiden voyage from Brooklyn to the University of Delaware on April 10th 2013. ” ~ read more on the website.

In addition, see below a super cool video of Jessie’s adventure around the US!

In conclusion, we love the story, the idea, the products and the pursuit of a dream!

Unfortunately, in the Fall of 2015, the project came to an end. Here is a Note from the Founder.

So, if you want to explore other Boho stores, you might want to take a look at this selection of some of the top Brooklyn vintage stores.
