    Petite Feet Sale S/S’11

    I flew in bright and early from NYC to attend and tweet at the biggest shoe sale in Canada, the Petite Feet Sale. (Yep! That’s me Ghost-Tweeting) Shannae from WhatWomenWant and I sped along the Hwy 427 in Sean’s black beamer to the sale straight from the airport. Thanks Sean!

    Voyage Leopard Lorissa (sample, not for sale!)

      We got there shortly after 10 and it was already buzzing with women, baskets of shoes and racks of even more shoes. 

    This sale always blows my mind. So many samples from various designers and so many pairs of size 6.

    With over 20,000 pairs, you have to skillfully scan the racks to pick up the perfect ones – details, heel shape and height, color, patterns and that gasp omg appeal.  Curation is key in an overwhelming setting like this.
    One of the girls saw my picks and said, I was happy with my selections til I saw yours.  Practice makes perfect – this is my 5th year of going to the sale.  Here are some of my faves.

    Go to WhatWomenWant for our little video of the sale. The sale is on for the entire long weekend just click the pink poster on the top right of the blog to get details.
