Shoestory #3: Stolen Heels

Stolen 2a

Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect shoe, sometimes you just hit the jackpot right on! I love it when I immediately fall in love. These heels are the perfect example of hitting the jackpot.

Last year (SS12) my friend needed a new dress for a party, so we went shopping. One of the best places to score an awesome dress is Supertrash. Lovely crew, neat store and fabulous clothes. For those who don’t know: Supertrash is owned by business fashionista Olcay Gulsen. The story goes that Olcay bought Supertrash from It-girl Ava Riley. But there are doubts too… (Dutchies: click) because Ava Riley is nowhere to be found online. So I leave that an open question! The bottom line, Supertrash has amazing clothes and fabulous heels!

How to survive a No-buy #3: goals

Goal

My shoe No Buy started on october 21. I decided to stop buying shoes for a whole year. Sometimes it frustrates me, because there are beautiful shoes everywhere. But sometimes it makes me happy, because I can spend my money on something else. But the most important thing I passed 200 days May 9th. Yay! Well done, Menina!

Bliss

Screen Shot 2013-05-22 at 4.39.41 PMI am a bit of a statistic-junk. Everyday before I go to sleep I look at the statistics of my blog. Just to see how many people visited my blog, what they were searching for and where they are from. From the day I posted this blog about Lola Shoetique, people end up on my blog because they were searching for a store like Lola Shoetique. Of course I started digging for you!

And I found a couple! First up is Bliss.

Shoedazzle

shoedazzleOnline shoe-stores are great. You can find anything you’d like with a little bit of effort. You can get newsletters from your favorite store and online you can search by category or feature. Shoedazzle found a different approach.

Shoedazzle is founded in 2009 by Brian S. Lee and his wife.  They hired our beauty princess Kim Kardashian as it’s chief fashion stylist. Nowadays Rachel Zoe is the chief fashion stylist. When you create an account, you get personalized shoes in your ‘showroom’.

Let’s take a look!

When you first enter the website, you have to take a quick fashion quiz. Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 4.50.54 PM

Designer ice cream

stock-footage-a-pretty-little-indian-girl-scooping-frozen-ice-cream-out-of-a-container-with-mommy-helpingAdmit it. Next to shoes, most girls have another secret obsession: Ice cream. I’ve seen it a million times and done it a million times myself. Don’t you love buying a big containter of your favorite ice cream and watch your favorite tv show for hours and hours? Well, I do! Especially with my favorite cookie dough ice cream or a good cinnamon ice cream!

Wouldn’t it be great to have designer ice cream? A dream come true, right!
