St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and although we’re above the school age games of pinching we think it’s best to go green for the holiday. Try your luck in feminine shades of pastel green, jade, or mint. For those of you striving to be the best dressed girl in the pub, take notes from Style Scrapbook’s ensemble and go head-to-toe in green; start with the Caragh’s and finish with a metallic skirt paired with a graphic sweatshirt.

Every year, Daylight Savings costs most of us an hour of sleep, and, frankly, I’m not okay with that.  It would be better if they kicked back Fri’ to a 7-hour workday, but instead they cut my weekend short. Not cool. The only consolation prize is that sometimes there’s an extra hour of Halloween on the backend. Big whoop—I’m typically too dru…dazzled…to care.

That’s why this rant is my ode to Arizona, a state that doesn’t give a daylight savings what the rest of the country is doing.

I’ve been to Arizona a few times (more times than I can remember). I know the people there are patriots who love their pastels and parties. Shout out to the ASU students who ran with me in the Undie Run (call me).

This is the Apple of our eyes—in the “Chevy to the levy” kinda way. This style is set in flagstone (Geography lesson: it’s a city in AZ).

Be sure to get desert. Georgie’s creamy colors reference “vintage,” but look modern and “Best West-ern.” Not the hotel.

Can I or cacti? Of course you canyon—in a prickly pair of Fyona,  Just like Sedona, Fyona rocks with flowing silhouettes and lightweight natural neutrals. Maybe even a wide brim hat. Sedontchya wanna try?

Richy T. — A.S. U wish.

Thursday'sRichyTBlog_3.6_pb2At this point, we all need to Master Cleanse our closets as part of spring-cleaning.

I do the real Master Cleanse regularly, but I won’t say that it’s healthy, or okay, or makes my skin look sensational (it does).  For those of you lookin’ all, “huh?” the Master Cleanse is a regimen of lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper taken daily to replace any and all meals with the purpose of ridding one’s (especially is one is a celebrity) body of toxins.  Yeah, that’s the face I expected from you, but it works for me. While I can’t promise it’ll work for you specifically, it will work for your closet.

Speaking of which; congrats, Marla T. for winning the ShoeDazzle Spring Closet Makeover and getting a jump on the seasonal renovation!  For the rest of us still thirsty to recharge, here are a few suggestions:

Go organic lemon: The style you can squeeze out of Zivana this and next season is sweeter than you think—just add your own sugar in the form of a cropped pants, gold jewelry and navy basics. That’s the juice.

Stand up, syrup, and stir up an Alder look that’ll give you enough energy for the entire day.  May people adore the maple reflections.

Spice up your wardrobe with the cayenne-colored Izzy…or isn’t she gorgeous? Her base faux “wood” read back to basics if it weren’t so tall and sexy.

The rest is water. “Spring” water to be exact. That’s the kind this Lacey shark requires.

Personally, I spike my cleanse with a Splash of iced tea, because of all the toxins I would like to be rid of, caffeine is not one of them.

Richy T. – Clean, clear, and out of control.

Hi Amanda!  You are such a busy bee in the office!  Tell us what your job description is and what your average M-F looks like.

Amanda:  That is very true!  I am on the marketing team and my primary focus is on email marketing.  I make sure that our girls are in the know about the latest shoes!  The good thing about my job is that there is no such thing as an average day.  We are working on so many exciting things that each week comes and goes before I know it.  I am in and out of meetings all day, so I definitely enjoy any time I get to sit down at my desk and cross things off my to-do list.  One thing I make sure to do is break away from the office and exercise.  It really helps get my mind off things and keeps me happy and energized, but that is definitely easier said than done!

It sure is!  It’s so great that we have a gym downstairs to get our exercise on.  We love that you’re a hapa.  Do most people know that when they meet you?

A:  A lot of people can’t tell that I’m half Japanese.  My dad is Japanese, so my last name is usually what gives it away.  Okay, and before you ask, I don’t speak Japanese and I have never been to Japan, but it is on my bucket list!

Haha, thanks for the clarifications.  Fill in the blank.  Your favorite thing to do EVER is ______.

A:   Travel!  I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel all over the world.  I studied abroad and lived in Italy for 4 months.  I traveled all over Europe while I was there and that’s when I fell in love with traveling.  It sounds cliche but it really does open your eyes to so many things.  I definitely have some exploring to do in the states.  That’s next on my list!

It’s always good to have a little wanderlust in you.  Speaking of, you’re off to NYC soon!  Which ShoeDazzle shoes are you bringing and what are you looking forward to most?

A:  Yes!  I am so excited.  I’ve never been there yet, so I’m not too sure.  I have a tendency to overpack, so I’m going to have a hard time figuring out what shoes to bring.  It’s going to be really cold when I’m there, so I’ll definitely bring my favorite boots:  Lati and Marcy.  Too bad my new spring sandals Gabriella and Diane will have to sit out on this trip.  My boyfriend grew up there, so I’m most looking forward to him showing me around, linking up with my best friend who I haven’t seen in a couple of years and of course, shopping!

Don’t hold back on this trip!  This spring, it’s all about _____.

A:  Pastels, neutrals and a splash of bright colors.  I also think Rachel Zoe said it best when she said it’s all about “daytime metallics.”  I love shopping our boutiques because they have the latest fashion trends.

You get to shop and work at the same destination!  What are some of your beauty essentials?

A:  My beauty must have of the moment is my nail polish.  I’ve developed quite the collection.  The girls at ShoeDazzle never cease to disappoint when it comes to a good manicure.  I paint my nails once a week.  Crazy, I know!  The trick to making them look professionally done is to paint your thumbs last so you can use them to clean up around the edges.

Good to know!  What’s the best advice you’ve ever given and the best you’ve ever received?

A:  I think the best advice I’ve ever given someone is to remind yourself that life is short.  Sometimes it takes something tragic to remind you of this, but I don’t think that it should have to come to that.  I think everyone knows it, but sometimes it just takes a little reminder to put things into perspective.  I think the best advice I have ever received is that if there is something in your life that is holding you back from being truly happy, change it.  You have the power to do so and you deserve it!

Sounds like some powerful words and we love it.  What are you favorite songs right now?

A:  “Adorn” by Miguel…The best way to describe it is Chris Brown meets Marvin Gaye.  “Stay” by Rihanna…I love the change of pace from her other recent hits.  “I Love It” by Icona Pop…It’s the anthem for our new commercial we just launched.  If you missed it, you’re missing out!  But don’t worry, I have you covered.  Watch it here.

Care to share three things we don’t know about you?

A:  Hmm, let’s see…I’ve been a ShoeDazzle member since 2009.  My closet is at it’s maximum capacity.  I’m a ginger ale addict.  My coworkers know the nicest way to brighten up my day is to surprise me with a nice cold can of ginger ale.  There are two amazing women in my life that taught me to be strong, humble and gracious.  My mom and sister are irreplaceable role models for me.

And you are very  much all of those things!  Lastly, 2013 is the year of _____.

A:  New things!  We launched our new site, we have Rachel Zoe as our new Chief Stylist, and that’s just the beginning!

Thanks Amanda!
