I came to New York with approximately one suitcase full of shoes, prepared for just about any fashion predicament I might find myself, except walking that is. Just a quick little inventory of what I brought
with me to the city to get you guys up to date:
4 pairs of high heels that I will never wear because that's just not practical with cobblestones and subway grates to dodge.
2 pairs of flats. Right, I know, what was I thinking?
1 pair of booties
1 pair of tennis shoes that many times have accompanied errand-running ensembles against my former chagrin toward the rubbered soles.
2-4 various other pairs that aren't coming to me right now, which I obviously don't wear that much since I can't even remember what they are.
Needless to say, NYC terrain is very different from the familiar UA sidewalks, which I've grown accustom. Back home there's no need to dodge and weave and cut in front of oncoming traffic. I mean, everyone else is doing it. You get caught up in the fast pace of city life and here I am proving New York stereotypes right. My pace is faster so I need my heels to be shorter and as much as I'd like to shop the streets of NYC for the perfect pair of black gladiators, this unpaid intern is on a budget.
Thankfully ShoeDazzle's got me covered, my soles at least. I certainly can't afford Rachel Zoe's ready-to-wear line, but I am more than happy for her to pick out a collection of shoes for me via ShoeDazzle's
To join, you take a quiz so they can get to know your style. You know, like what J.Lo look best describes you....the green breast-baring Versace number circa 2000 or are you that classy Maid in Manhatten style? Based on the results of the quiz, they give you your first showroom of shoes and handbags they think you’ll love. At the beginning of every month you will receive a new showroom selection that fits your individual style, and as new styles get added to the site throughout the month, they continue to tailor your personalized recommendations. Y'all Kim K and Rachel Zoe were involved so...you're kind of missing out if you don't at least try it out.
I can't wait to get my hands on those black gladiators to spice up my American Girl-esque sundresses.
