If you haven’t already heard, I have a weakness for fabulous shoes. And trust me when I say, that calling it a “weakness” is putting it mildly. While others have a fondness for fashionable footwear, MY “weakness” would be like using a paper towel to hold back raging water from a dam… I might be able to “keep it at bay” for a moment, but eventually a few drops are gonna seep through. It’s pretty bad, huh?… Eh, what can I say?
I’m always looking for an excuse to break out a pair of heels and hit the town. So, when the fabulous Eboni from The Fashionista Next Door invited me to a holiday shoe party for Atlanta’s bloggers I knew that I was definitely in for a fun night of shopping, socializing, and of course…shoes! The soiree was held at Sunny’s Hair & Wigs in the heart of Buckhead in Atlanta. Sunny’s is a very swanky hair boutique that carries all types of hair and wigs for the hairnista.
I was so thrilled and excited to attend this event simply because if this affair was anything like the Fashionable Atlanta Blogger Meetup that Eboni co-hosted last summer at Envy’s Boutique, I knew we were all in for a special treat. I mean, the swag bags at that event were so nice, AND they contained a gift card for a free pair of heels from Sole Society. Free AND Heels…two words that go great together…kinda like “free” and “ANYTHING to do with fashion” for that matter. 😛 But, in the mist of my running around town at the time, shortly thereafter I lost my gift card and wasn’t able to cash in on those free pumps. 🙁 So needless to say I’m in need of a lil retail redemption. 😛
Now, upon entering Sunny’s I was greeted by the fab Breck Bennett of Fashion Without Guilt. Breck welcomed the guests to enjoy a glass of Clos du Bois wine, delectable treats by Vosges gourmet choclates, fab swag bags filled with all types of goodies, and the pièce de résistance of the eve…a FREE pair of shoes from Sole Society! Hello déjà vu…It’s so good to see you again!!!
If you haven’t heard of Sole Society, you don’t know what you’re missing. Sole Society is a personalized shoe club that provides designer quality, on-trend shoes personally selected just for you. Based on your individual Style Bio, they will handpick a selection of today’s most fabulous footwear every month. Once you make your first purchase, you will become an active member of Sole Society and receive monthly shoe selections, special promotions, discounts and much more.
Ok, so I’m all giddy-giddy as I dash to these haute pink pair of Bianca’s; but they were all out of my size. (All together now… Awwwww!) But alas Divas, I didn’t sulk for very long as there was still a smorgasbord of delicious heels to choose from. So, I spotted a sassy pair of bow pump Carrie heels, which had faux suede bows on the toes. KEE-UTE!!! “Come to me my little pretties” (in my best Margaret Hamilton from the Wizard of Oz)!
Well, I must say that this was truly a “shoe-tastic” event! I had a great time chatting with all the fab ATL’s bloggers about style and fashion, and what’s in store for the upcoming season.
Thanks to the always glamorous Eboni for the invite and the gifts; and Shoe Society for the pumps. What a wonderful and exciting night filled with fun, fashion and fabulous footwear! I can’t wait to see what Eboni has up her “vintage blazer” next. 😀
I’ll see you at the next event ladies! No wait, I did already; right?
This déjà vu thing is so confusing…
