flat-out fabulous- OCTOBER GIVEAWAY

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I should tell you that I have a thing for shoes. Accessories in general, really, but especially shoes. And lately, I run into a pair of gorgeously adorned ballet flats everywhere I go- ballet flats with flowers, ballet flats with ruffles, ballet flats with ribbon, ballet flats with little bows and big bows. I love them all! I feel like these types of fabulous shoes are the perfect punctuation for an understated outfit (a cashmere 3 quarter length sweater and jeans, for example).

So when Jordi came up with the brilliant idea of creating ballet flats with exchangeable adornaments, I was beyond thrilled. A whole repertoire of be-dazzled shoes without having to buy a whole fleet of new footwear? Glory!

And then when we actually made them- oh, friends- they exceeded my (kind of high) expectations. If you live in Denver, you know this because I’ve worn them every day for the last week with a different adornament each time.

Here is the good news for you in all of this charm-bracelet-for your feet-fabulousness: in honor of this great month of October, we are giving away a pair of these goodies for your tootsies! At the end of October, we’ll send one gorgeously adorned pair of ballet flats to a lucky winner. You’ll also get to choose your shoe color (black or brown) and three pairs of accessories to accompany these little footwear gems. Think of the possibilities- ruffles and medallions and ribbon and buttons and pom poms in every shade you can imagine. Again, glory! AND, to sweeten the deal just a teeny bit more, they’ll come packaged in a sewn-to-suit shoebag (the perfect carrying case for the flats and all their extra ‘shoe charms’).

Even better- you have 3 opportunities to win… you can enter by:
1. Leaving a comment to this post sometime this month. We are having a hard time coming up with a name for our chameleon-like ballet flats. What do you think we should call these little numbers? Leave your suggestions in your comment.
2. Becoming a follower of our blog.
3. Linking to this post from your blog. Bonus points (or chances) may be granted for especially fabulous write-ups, so be creative. Leave a comment with the URL of your link so we can count your extra entry.

Good luck, friends!

  1. SO ADORABLE! I don't feel like I have any good ideas but you have to get through a lot of failures before you get to the one you like when you brainstorm right?

    So…feet candy, ummm…twinkle toes, fancy feet, trendy tootsies

    okay some of those are REALLY cheesy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am linking you to my blog right now.

    Im trying to think of some cute creative names, but so far I dont have anything remotely good…. hmmm..will keep trying!

  5. Hey guys! I've been a follower for a long time now – does that count? ๐Ÿ™‚
    I LOVE this idea. It's so much fun, and so whimsical!

    Hmmm, name ideas…like you said, this is tough! Here's just a couple I thought of (although I like some of the ones already posted! What creative friends you have!!):
    KojoToes, CutsiePatootsies, Frosting on the Feet, FootFlair… yep, that's tough! Good luck!

  6. These are so cute! Coming up with a name is hard! The only ideas that pop in my head right away are "soulful shoes," "shoes with soul," "sweet souls," "soul sisters" "happy feet." For some reason I can't think away from the sole/soul names! I will try to think of some more.

  7. Um, so I already have those exact ballet flats from Target! Does that help my chances? (I also have them in sparkly zebra print.)

    I love, love, love the charms! What a great idea. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like the first commenter's idea of "twinkle toes." cute.

  8. You all are beyond fabulous! What a GREAT idea! I follow your blog, but haven't made it official – so I will do that!

    What about "Foot Frosting" with a tag line – "So cute you could eat em" hehe. Or Flat Frosting or just Foot Frost or Flat Frost… ohhh, i like that:)

  9. You used the word "adornaments" in your post. I don't know if that was a typo or not, but why not just call them that–Adornaments?

  10. I LOVE these! you girls are so creative. Even if I don't win I want some! I just added me as a follower of you blog- not sure why I wasn't before??

    As far as a name goes I was thinking:

    "petit pirouettes"

    which is a ballet word for "small turns"- which you do with your feet! (jord I will show you an example when I see you next :0) )

    the link to my blog is:http://mcgoughjournal.blogspot.com/

  11. I wear flats alot…cute idea! I like the name Flat Out Charmed, for the flats and the cute little charms that go with them.

  12. I love these more and more each time I look at them. I love being able to change the look so eaily since I'm not a big shoe fan.

  13. I love the whole bunched-fabric flower motif on the dresses and shoes! Talked Jordan today about designing a flower girl dress with the same theme. Thanks for being so creative and generous!

  14. I hope you will sell these because I really want some if I don't win!!! You could name them Cutie Patooties ๐Ÿ™‚ or Sweet Feet…no maybe not the last one….Almost looks like sweat feet…PICK ME! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. You ladies come up with the cutest stuff! I've had you linked on my blog for a while and I always love coming over here to catch up on all the great finds and ideas.
    Glancing through the comments I saw a few variations of "shoe candy" and I think that's cute. I'm not very good at creative names but everyone else seems to be -good luck choosing:)

  16. OK can I just say that these charms are the cutest things I have seen! Being a lover of flats, this is an exciting discovery for me. Names: flat*out*standing, lucky charms. BTW I am posting a write-up about your giveaway on my blog tomorrow. I will give you the link then.

    those shoes are adorable in every way, and so are the embellishments!

  19. This is such a cute idea! As far as names ~ I can't really think of any. Someone suggested Mix and Mingles. That's a cute name!

  20. How cute and creative!!!! Those shoes are great for all seasons, winter included! Names: SweetSistaShoes,
    FancyFlats, FabulousFlats, FoxyFlats. Thank you and enjoy!!!

  21. These super cute gems have already been named, I am already a follower of the blog, I cannot decide which ones I like best, and I don't know how long I will actually be able to see my feet… but I am pretty sure that these would be the most perfect accessory for my maternity wardrobe so maybe I will win them anyway. Another wonderful creation gals!
