|Hands off, witch.|
Do you remember the first pair of shoes you ever picked out yourself?
I do. They were just like ruby slippers, but hot pink. I was six or seven, and was awed by how truly beautiful my blinged-out booties were as they skipped down the sidewalk. No Hush Puppies for this Oklahoma girl, thank you very much. Sparkle all the way.
The bliss I get from a new pair of shoes may be fleeting, but it's dependable. When I was seven a host of challenges were happening in my family (divorce, cancer, alcoholism--we aren't dull people!) but I will never forget the happy feeling I got from that simple purchase (thanks, Ma!).
In the spirit of spreading some luhve, I invite you to win a new pair of shoes!
Check back here within the week--One winner will receive her choice from either the "Sofia", "Crepe", or "Calais" collection from Dansko (go to www.dansko.com to pick your fave color/style)!
Simply "Like" Speed Chic on Facebook (if you haven't already) and post a comment below with your favorite pair of shoes memory...

Finally, a special Thank you to Dansko for hosting today's giveaway, and for sending Speed Chic a pair to try! I tested the "Chrissy" Mary Jane in Black Napa leather--and found them ideal for that in-between seasons (after flip flops, before Ugg boots) comfy-yet-cute shoe. The Chrissy has a soft cushioned footbed, rounded toe and cute ballet slipper strap detail.
I wore these last night with skinny jeans and a cardigan to our high school's football game--
