his is going to be my shortest post ever!! That is because I am so engrossed in the subject of my article that, I don’t think I can write more than 500 words today. I found a world full of shoes and for those who know me, that’s my point of no return.
Well here’s the deal, On 7th march 2012, the creator of popular fashion websites Yoox and The Corner, Federico Marchetti launched an exclusive shoe shopping destination online www.shoescribe.com. There are more than enough reasons to fall in love with the man, besides the fact that he is the man responsible for getting good fashion at our fingertips. He says ,“I love to buy shoes for my girlfriend, To me, they are like sculptural objects.” (Side note: This man’s girlfriend is never going to leave him and they shall have a happy life till the time he keeps thinking this way, and even if they do break up she will only have happy memories to share with the world, about him.)
Coming back to the site, it stocks a mind-boggling number of luxury shoe brands, more than a 100 brands to be specific. This site aims to touch new levels in terms of personalised service. Users can browse shoes by designer,occasion, category, size and heel size. Then there are picks by guest curators like Arianne Phillips (Hollywood costume designer and stylist). The site has various interesting features like the shoe valet section that offers advice to take care of your precious buys and gives quick fix solutions to all your shoe disasters. They also recommend cobblers in major cities. Also they curates some amazing inspiration boards, like this one, called “The Muses of Woody Allen.” You can turn to Ms. Suzie Scribe for all your shoe related dilemmas, followed by the best feature of them all, “Cinderella for a Day,” which gives subscribers, half off any pair on your birthday (can you believe that!?!! and that they launched a day after my birthday!)
I agree that it’s too high on the pocket and that the most you can do is ogle at those spectacular beauties. But for what it’s worth, it’s a brilliant world to get lost in. In comparison to Yoox.com, which sells past-season shoes at discounted prices, Shoescribe has current shoes mostly, being sold for full price. But instead of getting disappointed I will urge you to go check the site for new shoe trends for the season and for the other exciting features the site has to offer.
And there I hit 457, told ya its going to be shorter than ever. go-go-go shoe shopping! they have drool worthy stuff (my excitement is immeasurable)
