Dress: Zara | Shoes c/o ShoeMint | Necklace: Swell Caroline

This past weekend my husband and I broke down all our boxes and took them to the recycling center.  He almost had a heart attack seeing all the shoe boxes I had stored up over the past year.  It’s no secret that I am a shoe lover and one of my new favorite places to shop for them is ShoeMint!

For those of you who don’t know, ShoeMint is an online shop that is a collaboration and design by Rachel Bilson (from the O.C.!) and stylist Nicole Chavez, while being manufactured by none other than Steve Madden!  Their shoes are high-quality, luxurious, stylish, real leather and suede, and only cost an affordable $79.98 per style.  It is a free, members only website that offers recommendations on shoe styles, tips and trend reports.  Their shoes are always updated monthly to keep up with current trends.  There is free shipping and returns on purchases which is always a bonus too!

Well today, three of you are in luck, yes I said THREE!  I’ve teamed up with ShoeMint to give THREE of you a pair of shoes from their amazing collection!!

    OMG! Sandy!!! What an amazing giveaway… a perfect giveaway for me! You know how much I LOOOOOOOOOOVE shoes. I’m already a member of Shoe Mint (but haven’t purchased anything just yet)… I’m super lusting for the GARBO (http://www.shoemint.com/shoes/garbo) heel… and because I can’t just pick one… these are a few of my other faves:

    CAROL, ZOE, and JOANNA!! AHHHHHH!!!

    Thanks so much for this giveaway Sandy!
    ShoeMint has plenty of cute shoes and I definitely enjoyed clicking through them. If I were to have to choose a favorite, I think I would have to narrow it down between either the Hepburn or the Jaime. Both are really cute flats with a fun twist.
    If I was actually capable of walking in heels though, I would probably have to consider the Garbo and the Carol. Those two are interesting and fun as well!

    Best of luck to everyone entering the giveaway :)

    AMAZING. I’ve been a shoemint member for a while, but I’ve never purchased! This would be amazing. My favorite is the Meredith! Would be perfect for the springtime!
