Cha- Cha- Cha- Changes

Okay, now try and get that song out you of your head!  Life is full of changes and sometimes you simply can’t fight it. It’s with a heavy heart that I’m announcing I’m no longer going to be selling shoes.

We're Closing

Happy Shoe Day is going back to its original glory!  Back to where I search for fabulous shoes and show off how a pair of shoes can complete an outfit.

What does that mean for the Happy Shoe Day Shoe Store?  Shoes won’t be available for sale on the site.  Being a full-time mom, working part time and starting my own consulting firm I simply don’t have the time and energy to also own an online shoe store.  Its been a hard decision to close this part of Happy Shoe Day but its what is best for my family and my sanity.

Searching for a positive in all of this, I’m looking forward to going into a shoe store and shopping!!!  Instead of checking out their inventory and wondering how my little shop can keep up.  Also, I no longer will feel guilty buying shoes when I have a basement full of shoes.  Not sure our bank account is happy about that part.

Happy Shoe Day, the blog, isn’t going anywhere.  I’ll be posting more about trends, fabulous finds and even featuring some baby shoes too.

Everything Must Go!

Where do we go from here?!  Well, I need ALL of the shoes that are in my basement to GET OUT!  I’ve updated the shop to the lowest prices possible.  What you see is what you get… all available sizes are there.  Minnesota peeps: check out the shop and then e-mail (or text) me with your order.  This way I can just drop them off and we don’t have to worry about shipping.

I want to thank everyone for supporting this venture.  What a dream come true to have owned my own shoe store.  I’m sad to see the shoes go but excited to see what the future holds.

Happy Shoe Day CLosing Party

And because I always love a reason to shop, see friends and enjoy a class of bubbly I’m going to have my final shoe party.  Come to the Happy Shoe Day Headquarters and shop the rest of the inventory.  The Style Trolley will be here to help complete the outfits with beautiful pieces.

Details: Sunday, July 23rd from 2-6 pm. 4860 Highcrest Dr, Excelsior, MN.  E-mail me at happyshoeday@gmail.com if you’re interested in stopping by.  Would love to see you!

 

Have a happy shoe day!

Shoe Report: Oscar Trend Edition! (2/23/14 – 2/27/14)

I was inspired after watching all those beautiful dresses on the red carpet to start incorporating those trends into my outfits this week.  So each day you’ll see one or two trends that we’re on the red carpet.  What trends are your favorite from the 2015 Academy Awards?

Monday, February 23rd: 

Did you see how beautiful Jennifer Hudson was in yellow?! Check out her  Romona Keveza dress!

YELLOW DRESS TREND

Which reminded me, I have some beautiful yellow boots I never wear!! Plus, It was freezing out and I needed to add some sunshine to my outfit. These beautiful yellow faux suede boots are from justfab.com.

Monday Shoes

Now for what inspired my oufit! Reese Witherspoon look amazing in her Tom Ford black and white dress, it fit her perfect!

BLACK AND WHITE TREND

This dress was icing on the cake for me… I’ve been seeing black and white stripes all over the places but I didn’t have any a shirt or anything.  I picked up this shirt at Target and my jeans are the curvy fit also from there.  My blazer is from Primp and when they have these in stock they’re always in a variety of colors.  I just love this blazer.

Monday's Outfit

Tuesday, February 24th: 

Tuesday’s outfit is inspired by the beautiful floral trend that was on the red carpet.

Floral Trend

For the shoes, I pulled out a pair I don’t wear too much.  I got these so long ago that I don’t reminder where I got them but they’re such a fun pair of pumps.  The flower on top adds a real conversation piece to the outfit.

Tuesday Shoes

The floral trend continues to my purple cardigan that I got at Target.  This is much bolder than what you saw on the red carpet but I haven’t yet embarrassed the floral look, I am trying.  I paired the top with a floral lace black skirt that I got a Kohl’s.  I really committed to the floral look for this one!

Tuesday Outfit

Wednesday, February 25th:

There were some beautiful metallic gowns Sunday night but my favorite was Laura Dern’s Alberta Ferretti gown.

87th Annual Oscars Red Carpet Arrivals

Of course when I saw this I thought, I really need to pull out my Steve Madden metallic purple boots.  I mean, didn’t everyone?  These boots I don’t bring out too often because they are so pointy that they get scuffed pretty easy.  These were originally $300 but I wanted until they were on ultra clearance and I got the for $65, which I believe is the most I’ve ever spent on shoes.

Wednesday Shoes

For the outfits, it’s all about the black and white trend for me this week.  I keep going back to it because it’s so easy to pull off. All though my favorite black and white gown was Reese Witherspoon look, a close second was Marion Cotillard’s Christian Dior gown.

I was excited to get this new jacket in the mail, I ordered it from Sheinside.com.  It took awhile to get it to me but I got this week and couldn’t wait to wear it.  I paired it with pixie pants from Old Navy.

Wednesday Outfit

Thursday, February 26th:

Pretty in pink! There was a lot more pink than normal at the Oscars and it made me want to embrace pink.  My favorite pink dress was Zoe Saldana’s Atlelier Versace dress but Gwyneth and Anna pulled the look off too.

So for the shoes I stuck with a nude pair to keep the look simple.  These are from Target and I have to say they’re like flats to me… when it doubt these are the pair I wear.

Now for the pink.  The only light pink I own is this super comfy sweater from Kohl’s. Seeing the trend on the red carpet made me pull out a sweater that I simply don’t wear that often.  To dress the sweater up a bit I added my anchor scarf which I have no idea where or when I got this. And to finish this simple look I wore my silver jeans that I love so much!!

Thursday Outfit

Friday, February 27th: 

For the last trend this week, I wanted to feature the all black.  This was a unique challenge for me cause I love adding color to my look. Cate Blanchet, Sienna Miller, and Margot Robbie looked absolutely beautiful in all black but I especially love the pop of color Cate added.

all black

For the shoes, I had to wear my favorite black pumps that have a beautiful textured heel!  I love what this heel adds to a look, so simple yet still such a statement.  These were purchased at DSW.

For the outfit, I stayed as true to all black as I could but I took a note from Cate Blanchet and added a little pop of color with my belt.  This entire outfit is brought to you by Target!
