fabulous friday giveaway!

so, even though i fear that the storyline itself will likely suck ass, i'm still excited to see this:

even though quite a few of SJP's outfits in SATC are pretty outlandish for my conservative ass, i still love checking them all out. besides, in addition to her reported 40+ costume changes throughout the movie, i find myself admiring outfits on prissy, girly charlotte. i love her pearl-clutching, full-skirt wearing character, and more than once i've headed off to the mall in search of something similar to one of her ensembles from the show.

and, of course, SATC is nothing without the shoes. those chicks get to rock some pretty fantastic footwear, and even if one can't pull off the fashionista getups, every girl can strut her stuff in a kick ass pair of shoes.

every girl, of course, except me - because i'm a total heels wuss. i'm almost always in flip-flops, flats, or wedges with maaaaybe a 2" heel. anything taller than that and i'm whining within the hour about my feet hurting. beauty is pain, this i know, but i just can't sacrifice my comfort to that extreme.

and now, something fun for you guys - an almost completely unrelated giveaway. haha! i'm signed up for daily updates from a site called
groupon - they offer some really great discounts every day for products and services. usually, they're local to wherever you live. anyway, a few weeks ago, the offer of the day was for something called rolleez. i clicked on the link and found these:

they're what i call "emergency flats." you know, you're out and about, looking fabulous in your 4-inch stiletto heels, but you're pooped and your feet are killing you. and driving or doing pretty much anything outside of the house or at the beach barefoot is gross (at least, i think so), so you continue on miserably in your fabulous but hellish footwear. OR, you reach into your trunk or wherever you keep stuff like this, pull out a pair of little ballet-style flats, unroll them and slip 'em on. and then you can put your awesome heels in this little tote bag, which unfurls from this strawberry shape:

okay, i sound like a damn commercial. no, i'm not being paid to sell these things - but i do have a bunch of pairs to give away! i've got black, pink, gold, and silver ones in size medium (supposedly for a 7-8 foot). granted, they're not the most beautiful shoe in the world, but i think it's nice to have an option available just in case. i've found myself hobbling around after attending a party or a wedding or something, and having a pair of flats in the car would've been fantastic.

anyway, if you'd like to get your hands on a pair, leave me a comment with your e-mail address, your top two color choices, and - hmmm. just for fun, tell me (or link me) to a pair of shoes you'd love to scoop up this summer. i need shoes, and maybe you guys can help me shop.

you've got till monday at 9:00am (PST) to enter, and then i'll use random.org to pick some winners!


  1. Oh they're really adorable and I especially like the strawberry bag that comes with them. I like the silver and copper ones the best.

    A couple of shoes I'm eyeing: Louboutin Knotted Pump in nude and Tory Burch Reva lizard Print

  2. i'm totally stoked for SATC 2..i sooo wanna go watch it at midnite but my old ass won't wanna wake up for work the next morning..so instead i'll go to a matinee on a saturday. :)

    anywho...those flats are super cute. my top 2 - definitely pink or black
    email- a_guardado@yahoo.com

    oh and i totally get you with the 2 inch heel maximum...i can't handle anything taller..which sucks because there are so many cute ass shoes, but i'd likely kill myself if i try and walk in them.. i picked these up a couple of weeks ago at payless ;)


    super cute, super comfy..oh and they also come in hot pink - LOVE

    ok this comment is super long.

  3. OMG! I posted something like these on The Nest once and got flamed to high hell and never thought about them again.

    I want these for Vegas! It seems like no matter how comfy my shoes are when I leave my hotel for a night on the town, I end up hobbling back barefoot with monster blisters and wish I had something better... Rolleez are the answer to my prayers.

    I love the black and the silver!

  4. Fun!! I'm a total baby when it comes to shoes too. High heels are a major decision for me.

    My email address is leticia2u@gmail.com and my top 2 colors are black or white. lol. I'm boring.

    Here are some shoes I've been eyeing:

    They are pricey so I've been waiting for them to go on sale. :)

  5. I don't want to put my email addy out for the whole world, but we're FB friends :)

    Pink and gold are my favorite Rolleez.

    The shoes I'm living in this summer are Nine West Effort: http://tinyurl.com/2745xz4

  6. Cute giveaway! My top colors are black and silver. Unfortunately i haven't had my eye on any shoes lately...boo. It's all about finding B some shoes. He needs some good walking shoes, I'm contimplating robeez or pedi peds. His converse just weren't doing it.

  7. Black and silver! That way, they match everything.

  8. here are some cute wedges!

    I think I would like a pink or silver pair of flats. Thank you.

    lovefateinc at gmail dot com

  9. Those are adorable! (E-mail in my profile)

    I've been obsessed with fun yellow heels for a couple years. I like these http://www.zappos.com/nina-elijah-canary-luster-satin
    but I wish they weren't so "Bridesmaid yellow" and more of a sunny yellow. The quest continues.

  10. Hi! I like black & silver.

    Thank you!

  11. I like pink and black. Very Carrie colors!

  12. I could be practical and say the black...but I'm going with pink and silver :)

    And for shoes -- I'm thinking of bringing back espadrilles and huaraches for summer...high school and after - they were my favorite shoes...

  13. i could be rich right now b/c i swear i thought of this idea forever ago.

  14. Awesome I don't care if people don't like them they are adorable!

  15. I totally need those! I'm usually in heels even when running around town with DS but those would be great to just throw in my diaper bag in case I decide I can no longer wear the heels. But by the time I realize I need flats, I have lost all feeling to my feet and just keep on wearing the heels.

  16. Ok, I freaking love these things! So cute and an adorable idea! I'd love the boisterous black or the precious pink. *pink is my fave*

    You can contact me via my blog, or I can private message my email to you.

    I am wanting these for the summer:

  17. I want the black and the gold ... those would be handy to have around.

    As for shoes to scoop up this summer, I could go for a good pair of wedges, for height and comfort:



  18. I'd love to win them! I would ask to be surprised with any color -- send me your favorite! My email is BettyWhite111 at gmail dot com.

  19. yay, can't wait for satc2!

    yay groupon! i like the black and the gold. a lot of times i'm at school all schlumpy then my friends wanna go somewhere niceish for a quick drink, dinner, etc. and i'm in my flip flops and yoga pants. this way i can borrow clothes from friends but have shoes that fit (kind of...i have midget feet to match my height) in the car.

    for summer, these are pretty hot: http://obsessed.instyle.com/obsessed/photos/results.html?No=0 (but out of my budget and comfort bubbles).

    googlename at gmail dot com. you know what it is.

  20. meagansheartisbeeping@gmail.com

    Those would be great for emergency shoes - especially when you're always in heels (like me) but have had your shoes for so long that the heels sometimes fall off. That's fun.

    Anyway, here are shoes I want now or in the summer:



    and ones you might actually like:

  21. Those are cute!

    I love the black and the pink!

  22. I love those rollable flats! Really cute and functional to keep in your car. My email address is nicole-brock@sbcglobal.net. The shoes I have been craving this summer are:


  23. SO cool!

    I'd love the silver or pink flats!

    The shoes I'm drooling over for the summer are these....I may just bite the bullet and buy them:


    kwhitnall at gmail dot com

  24. I would love to win!!

    I think I would especially love the silver or black.

    in nude - love them!

  25. http://www.urbanog.com/index.html
    Saw this website, has cute trendy sandals and stuff, but don't think its high quality though...I already posted earlier...but pink or silver would be cute flats! lovefateinc at gmail dot com

  26. I think the copper or silver would be super cute!

    As for my shoe love:http://www.zappos.com/seychelles-kick-up-your-heels-black

    gnabeana at gmail dot com

  27. i love these shoes in pink from victorias secret http://tinyurl.com/564lap
    i also want a new pair of reef flip flops.

    the pink and silver colors of those flats are my favorites.

    thanks for doing this!

    kaitironside [at] gmail [dot]com

  28. I love the pink or black.

    I currently want these:
    http://www.zappos.com/images/z/1/1/4/1148710-p-MULTIVIEW.jpg? though I could never afford them :P

    stephiecabral at gmail dot com

  29. I LOVE them all! What a great idea.

    My favorite colors are copper and black. (I also wouldn't mind having the silver and pink... can't I be like Carrie and have it all?)

    The shoes I've been eyeing this summer are Kenneth Cole's Pretty Zone.

    My email is meaghanrice at hotmail dot com.

  30. I would like the black or gold ones most, I think.

    As far as shoes for the summer--I'd like another pair of black platform flip-flops from jcrew. They were my favorite summer shoe until they broke last year.

    my email is myblackfriend at myblackfriendsays dot com

  31. Yay! How fun! I like black and silver the most. I just spent HOURS looking for a pair of sandals or flats for the summer and found nothing :( So, I guess I'm not the person to ask when it comes to recommendations on shoes.

  32. I love the black and silver ones!

    As far what I'm looking for this summer, something with a peep toe that I can wear to work. I work for a company that insanely doesn't allow fully open-toed shoes.

  33. Ohhh....I like all the colors! I think my top choices would be pink and copper---although the silver and black look awesome too, so I'd be happy with whatever!

  34. you know you want to hook me up with a silver pair. ;)

  35. I think they're super cute! I love the silver pair!

  36. Love when you have give aways! Super cute, I'd like black, silver, pink, gold. In that order. ;-)

  37. These are adorable- my faves are the black and the copper. my e-mail is meangreenmom[at]gmail[dot]com

    and some shoes i am lusting after for your inspiration: http://www.habitatshoes.com/see/chie_mihara/kaida

    Crossing my fingers :)

  38. these are great to throw in my diaper bag...now that i am a mom i guess i should have some comfy shoes to change into if i am wearing heels!! i like the gold and silver ones!! i just bought these wedges at dsw....really cute and SUPER comfy!!


  39. Those are super cute! Is it sad that my favorite part about them is the bag? LOL!

    I like the silver and the pink ones! They'd be super comfy while I stand all day teaching ;)

  40. I love the silver ones. The shoes I would love to buy this summer are a pair of Tori Burch sandals - the flip flop ones.

  41. Yay I still have time! I like the silver/black/gold/pink.

    Here's a wedge I'm thinking about:


  42. I just found your blog :)

    Those shoes are fabulous AND functional! So rare. My favorite would have to be the pink and then the gold

    I don't have a specific shoe in mind (because it depends on your skin tone) but you should look into getting a nude heel, they make your legs look model long and lean

  43. I love those shoes!!!! I usually cary my revas in my bag in an old dust bag....as Im a habitutual shoe changer, but those seem pretty awesome.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
