Wednesday, January 23, 2013 OMG, Shoes!: This Could Be You
Meet Christina, the oh-so-lucky girl that won our last Shoes For A Year sweepstakes. We got the chance to catch up with her to see her new collection of heels, boots and towering platforms. If you haven’t signed up yet, this year’s sweepstakes ends on January 29th, so step on it!
In this smorgasbord of shoes, what have you realized about your style?
I’ve noticed I really like the shoe to elevate the overall outfit. I’m not afraid to mix hard and soft looks.
If you had to choose just one pair of shoes to wear for a month, which would they be?
My favorite pair is the Sam Edelman Spiked Low Desert Boots (which are sold out, but here’s a similar pair) because they go with any outfit, whether it be a dress or a pair of jeans.
What are your favorite shoes on Nasty Gal right now?
I’m definitely digging the Zoe Oxford in Hologram. They’re a mix of feminine and masculine that’s so charming.
Have you found any new beloved brands or do you not play favorites?
How did you make space in your life for all these shoes?
Luckily, I’m usually pretty conservative with the number of shoes I have in my closet, so they easily fit in with the rest of them. I’ve started to stack them on higher shelves. Organization is key or I find myself wearing the same pairs over and over. I keep them in the box and have the description of the shoe facing out.
Has winning this contest helped refine your style or has it expanded it?
The shoes on Nasty Gal are bold and edgy. I love this! Winning the contest has definitely allowed me to expand my style in a much more exciting way. It’s amazing how these shoes really ramp up any outfit!
Monday, August 31, 2009 Sophia’s Corner: Vegas Or Bust!
Spent the day pounding the pavement (or carpet, whatever) for sweet stuff to fill the store with. Among my favorites were a strong-shouldered velvet blazer I’m dying to wear, a studded lapel biker jacket for under $100, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes of course! The first photo is with Ty of JC shoes, who helps us keep those amazing styles coming and helps me pick out each season’s winners. Took a moment to rest outside and snapped a few photos with Renee. I’m wearing my favorite new top by Natalie Encarnita, which will be hitting the store this week!
