and the dust keeps piling up...

We have some more construction photos!

These are from a couple of weeks ago. We had moved our shelves to a temporary home...sadly they couldn't be moved, as you can see from the sign below:

Thanks for the warning :D

The latest news: our new walls have been framed and installed!
Just a few coats of paint and we'll be looking very good.

We love Valentines!

It's that time of the year again and love is in the air. Heart shaped candy boxes, over stuffed teddy bears, and deliciously sappy cards fill store shelves. If you're like me, a procrastinator, you probably have seen all of the warning signs (of this day that happens to occur every year at the same time) but still has not bought a gift or thought of an outfit to wear on your annual date. Well if that's you and you need some style advice I assure you, one LBD (that's an initialism for 'little black dress') and some hot/cute red shoes will do the trick. 

Our lovely Mandy is modeling the Lara shoe from our new Chie Mahara Spring collection. Add some retro style to any outfit with this super cute heel.
Another fun pair of shoes is our Walker shoe from our spring collection of Miz Mooz. The insole is cushy with bright rainbow colored stripes that'll make you think "perfect party shoes." Bri loved them so much she bought them for herself!

All class and a little sass. The Opportunity shoe from Gentle Soul has arrived in a sweet as pie ecru color. Clean colors on your sky high (yet ridiculously comfy) heels are your perfect day time date look. 

Biviel shoes always make a statement. Paired with the perfect little black dress and some pearls and you've got yourself one hot little outfit!

Ahh...wasn't that inspiring? So come on ladies, Valentines Day is just around the corner.

Sole Foodies' Shoe Closets

Do you ever wonder just how many pairs of shoes a person at a shoe store owns? Lots of people ask me how many pairs I own and it's come to the point where I honestly can't give them a number. That's not necessarily a bad thing! :D

I asked my fellow Sole Foodies to take pictures of their shoe collections, big and small. I also asked them to point out their favorite pair.

Amanda is a shoe fanatic, as you can tell by her photos! She's got shoes in boxes, stuffed in shoe shelves and even a small collection at her parents' house. Amanda's favorite pair is her Frye Simone Cuff boots (above), which she scored at the Sole Food sidewalk sale. Beautiful, aren't they?
Cute shoes Jen! Included in her collection are the ever-so-popular Opportunity heels from Gentle Souls. They are hot shoes!
Here's Anilyn's super-impressive collection. 3+ bookcases full of shoes!

Look how nicely organized Bridget's shoes are! To Bridget, shoes are what makes an outfit. Her favorite pair of shoes is her lovely, vintage ones from Dolce & Gabbana (above). Sadly, she says there too small, but hey! They're D&G, so they're worth it.

Frye, Coclico, John Fluevog...Bri has got some great shoes!

Here are the shoes in my closet. That doesn't count the ones I have by my front door, or in boxes packed up in the garage! My favorite pair are these Faryl Robin heels. So colorful and fun!
