Hi Sharon!  How are you?  Will you let everyone know what your title is here at ShoeDazzle?

Sharon:  Sure!  I am a Product Manager here at ShoeDazzle and I love it!

What is it like being a product manager for ShoeDazzle?

S:  My career has been very exciting here!  As a Product Manager, my main responsibility is to help make the website a great shopping experience for our lovely ladies.  With the recent release of our new site, it was amazing to be part of an innovation that made ShoeDazzle more fun for everyone.

What do you wear when you want to look business chic?

S:  I’m obsessed with peplums right now.  I love how versatile they are.  You can look sharp for work and classy when you’re out for the evenings.  No matter what body type you have, Peplum gives you an instant hourglass figure.  Who wouldn’t want that?

What was your most recent purchase from your February showroom?

S:  Evans!  I decided to change it up and get a cute mint clutch — something I’ve been trying to find for months.  I can’t wait to use it this weekend.

What are you some of your favorite things about your job?

S:  I love working in e-commerce and fashion.  It’s the perfect intersection of two worlds that I absolutely love.  I also never know what to expect.  One day, I will be optimizing our website, then the next day, I could be thinking of new concepts for awesome new projects.  It’s great.  ShoeDazzle keeps me on my toes.

Tell us 3 fun facts about you.

S:  1.  I pulled an airplane before (with the help of my classmates).  2.  I used to be a Bridal Consultant and discovered that bridezilllas really exist.  3.  I am a nomad–I’ve moved 10 times in the last 9 years.

Florals and sneaker wedges are trending right now.  Do you have any of them in your wardrobe?

S:  Yes!  Sneaker wedges! I love how comfortable they are….and it makes me nostalgic of the 90’s.

What’s on your bucket list?

S:  My bucket list includes a LOT of traveling.  I want to visit every country one day because I really value new experiences.  I’m also dying to see the Lantern Festival in Thailand.  It’s so beautiful and romantic…almost surreal.  If you’ve ever seen Tangled, it’s like the lantern scene but in real life.

Favorite actor/human of all time?

S:  That’s a no brainer–Ryan Reynolds.  He just gets finer with time!  Please tell me he’ll be in more movies this year.

Advice for the girl that want’s it all?

S:  Whatever it is, your passion is your most important asset.  I think everything else falls into place when you do what you love and you’re willing to give it your all.

Lastly, tell us a random story!

S:  While walking form the subway station to my boyfriend’s place in Downtown (yes, I actually take the subway in LA), I saw Batman zoom past me in his Batbike.  That was crazy surreal.  I could feel my heart skip a beat.

Love it!  We can still believe in superheroes, right?  Thanks, Sharon!

Prabal Gurung made waves recently when his collection for Target made a successful debut on February 10th by almost selling out completely in one day. The 80-piece collection featured pops of neon, lace details, and elaborate splashes of color. If you were one of the prompt fashionistas to snag the collection, pair your new looks with the lace up pump Marysol.

Ear cuffs are the new go to accessory for stylish celebrities like Lily Collins, Miranda Kerr, and Naomie Harris. The look is perfect for adding a bit of roughness to your outfit. Check out our favorite pieces of ear candy: Hooked Up, Fly Away, and High Praise.

Valentine’s day is today, and this particularly jaded pessimist is scheduled to blog about it.  Read: “Yay, obligatory romance.” The other day, in a half-hearted attempt to reconnect, my ex asked to “see me” and retrieve some stuff from my garage. I promptly set fire to the aforementioned “stuff” and okay’d the visit for later that day. Bitter much? Probably, but I’m not devastated; I’m diva-stated, which means I want to be loud about it and make a scene.

Me? I’m planning to spend my V-day using social media to keep tabs on the people who were and/or are my unwilling Valentines.  Like, Kaydra, some booties are made for stalking.

On Facebook, be facetious; he better not “Like” anything but your Lockport today or else he’ll be the one getting locked out.

On Twitter: If he hasn’t @mentioned your Margarets, he must be #ReTwiculous, HashTag, #OverIt.

Oh no, not YouTube. Get more views in spectacular shoes like Decker.

P to the S. No one’s Pinterested in excuses this year. Gentlemen, step up to your lady’s level , ’cause from atop her heels, you look like a sad, little Instagrampa

 

Love,

Hey Blanka!  You’re our Merchandising Project Manager.  What’s your favorite thing about working for ShoeDazzle?

Blanka:  The easy answer here would be to say “the SHOES” of course (and don’t get me wrong, that part doesn’t suck)…however, my favorite part about ShoeDazzle is the people that I am lucky to work with each day.  Being part of a team full of women with strong personalities could be a recipe for disaster but I can honestly say that I consider all the lovely ladies on the Merch team not only my co-workers, but real friends.

We do have an amazing blend of people here!  Tell us some fun facts about yourself.

B:  I have a twin sister; yes- we are identical.  No, we cannot read each other’s minds and yes-having a spare closet full of stuff that fits you is awesome!  I was also born in the Czech Republic and move to the US when I was 7 years old.

How did you get into fashion?

B:  I found myself working on the corporate end of the industry right out of college.  I loved it and stuck with it.  It’s not all fun and games like some may think though-you have to work hard, put your time in and really pave your way.

Words you live by?

B:  Favorite famous quote: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” -Coco Chanel

Favorite Blanka original: “Surround yourself with good people and the rest will fall into place.”

Beauty must haves?

B:  Well, my basics that I try to never run out of are my: MAC concealer, a good clear lip gloss and under eye cream!  Honestly, I’m beginning to rely less on products and more on natural go-tos like eating right, exercise, water and good ol’ beauty rest!

Tell us the the truth: how dreamy is it working in a super pink building?

B:  LOL!  Working in the “super pink” Merch space is surreal sometimes…It’s open…it’s modern…it’s fresh…it’s creative!  I’m a big believer that surroundings are key and the space definitely adds to the great vibe that we have.  The surround sound stereo system, gourmet coffee bar and endless candy supply don’t hurt either.

There’s nothing wrong with some pink creative space!  Valentine’s Day is tomorrow.  Any plans?

B:  A group of my girlfriends and I are getting together for a big dinner over in Studio City so I guess you could say we’re having a “Gal-entine’s Day.” Any excuse to dress up and eat some good food works for me!  I’m also thinking of baking up some goodies for my Dazzle sisters…

What are some of your favorite hang out spots?

B:  I live over in West Hollywood right off the Sunset strip so…needless to say, there is an infinite amount of “hot spots” right in my own backyard.  A few places to check out are Eveleigh (ask for Garrett the bartender, he’s rad).  Laurel Hardware is great – get the brussels sprouts!  I do have to say – I’m just as happy at a local sports bar wearing jeans and my Dream sneakers as I am being decked out at a 5-star restaurant.  I’m a Libra-it’s all about balance!

What shoes would you rather dance in:  pumps or wedges?

B:  Funny you ask…I’m heading to Vegas this weekend and found myself packing nothing but my highest pumps (it is Vegas after all)!  However, when I go to a wedding, I’m more likely to wear a wedge (especially if it’s outdoors).  It just depends on the occasion.  Tip of the Day:  If your bag can spare the room- pack a pair of flats that work for any occasion.  Your feet will love you for it!

Do you prefer a boot or a bootie?

B:  Bootie!  Tall, short, thin heel or think heel- I love them all!  Find your perfect pair (or two, or three…) and it can go with just about any outfit in your wardrobe!  most girls don’t realize that booties can be the new pump that goes with all your ‘pretty’ dresses.  As far as color:  black is my favorite and eternal must have but I’m also really feeling snake print these days.

Any last words for our lovely clients?

B:  GET EXCITED!  There is so much amazing-ness coming your way…You have no idea!

On Blanka:  Marysol pump (coming soon)!
