Tomorrow, as you may have heard, the world may or may not end. Experts say the world faces an array of problems that’ll end civilization as we know it on 12/21/12.  ShoeDazzle and I want to make sure you’re prepared for each scenario. So, on the eve of Armageddon, I present to you our Survival Guide.

Scenario 1: Depleted Resources

If we run out of oil, stay slick in Fay. She loves liquid leggings and Texas gold accessories. Mix metals; it’s the end of the world, people.

Scenario 2: Drought

If water’s the problem, quench your thirst in Ece; she works well with cropped trousers, previously known as “high waters.”

Scenario 3: Alien Invasion

If aliens invade, reach for your Dangers to let them know you come in peace to take them to your fashionable leader.

Scenario 4: Biohazards

In case of bio weapons, go Over The Top. One thing I’ve learned in my short time on this planet: going to the Emerald City solves everything.

Scenario 5: Zombies

In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse, best pack your Pella full of bricks and your favorite apocalypstick, because you can do some serious damage swinging that thing—and look sexy doing it.


Richy T,  – It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I look fine. Apocalypstick.


Meet the coolest Cori we know.  She’s also our digital asset manager here.

1.  Hi Cori!  How’s it going? What’s your typical day like?

A typical day consists of editing photos, color checking/organizing product photos, uploading images to the website, etc.  I coordinate the photo team to make sure we hit all of our retouch deadlines for product, lookbooks and various other campaigns to make sure the photos look good and consistent!

2.  That’s a lot of photos!  You have the coolest heterochromatic eyes ever.  How many people ask you about that every day?


3.  You seem to really enjoy photography.  What’s your favorite subject to photograph?

I think fog is my most favorite subject.  Fog makes everything look awesome.

4.  Fill in the blank.  My most favorite thing to do is ___.


5.  Favorite rap song?

Tough question.  I think I’ll go with Topback by T.I.  I like my beat down low…

6.  Plans for the holiday?

Heading back to Michigan to spend time with my family.

 7.  Sounds lovely.  Michigan is great!  Lastly, the best thing about working for ShoeDazzle is ___.

Trying on shoes!

Cori’s wearing Proud.

Dear Stylist,

“I’m really big on prints and LOVING the printed shoes I’m seeing on Shoedazzle this month, but not sure how to style them.  How would you style Kolfinna and Overthrow?

 Heather Says:  Southwestern and animal printed shoes are both such haute trends this season, and the Kolfinna and Overthrow are the perfect shoes to really rock these trends right.

 Kolfinna’s bold animal print will make a statement on it’s own so go with a sleek and simple look pairing a black oversized sweater with black leather leggings.  Add gold accents in your accessories and clutch or handbag to tie in with Kolfinna’s stunning gold heel to showcase your inner Glamazon!

 Southwestern prints have been seen all over the runways this season and the Overthrow will be your must-have to indulge in this trend. Go western chic with a denim-on-denim ensemble by pairing a feminine denim shirt with a bold colored skinny jean to tie in with Overthrow’s vibrant sunset hues and you’ll be sure to lasso looks while strutting the streets in style!

Shades of pastel are definitely a go to trend this season. Whether you like to carry a frosty bag like the Brantley, or walk in pretty heels like the Tomoko; the key to pulling off the style is to compliment your ensemble with a playful makeup palette.

Our makeup artist Karoliina Kangas gave us the inside scoop on recreating the look shown above. Begin with a dewy base by brushing a bit of concealer onto your eyebrows, this will give them a lighter appearance and help with highlighting the gentle hues in your shadow. Then mix orange and pink eye shadows together with more emphasis on pink to give the shading a soft frosty appeal. After primping with color, line your eyes with black eyeliner and lashes with black mascara to give them definition.

Next, add a rosy element by prepping with a bronzer of your choice and dusting your cheek bones with neon hued blush. To finish the look, give your lips a nice pink pout and gently apply powder to your face.
