Wow. What little girl doesn't dream of going on a shoe shopping spree?! And really, what mom doesn't dream of taking an evening to finish back-to-school shopping with sweet friends and dinner from Panera Bread and ZERO pressure?
A friendly group of Georgia social media moms met up at the Famous Footwear at The Avenue at East Cobb over the weekend to discuss new back-to-school styles and fall fashions for the entire family. In addition to exclusive shoe colors and great prices, Famous Footwear is also offering a BOGO event now through August 3, 2013: All shoes and backpacks are Buy One, Get One half off! You can buy a pair of school shoes for your child AND a fall style for yourself without breaking the bank.
Check out some of the new fall styles:
Famous Footwear has great brands that we all know and love, like Converse, Sperry, Nike, and more. My husband lives in Converse sneakers, so I made sure to grab a couple pairs of these classics for my husband and myself.
The back-to-school styles for children are really diverse. From dressy leather shoes to colorful canvas sneakers, there's a little something for everyone. I really like the bright colors and sparkles on many of the new girls' shoes. I picked up a couple pairs of glittery light-up shoes for Danger, including these Barbie shoes! I typically don't go for character-themed shoes, but I just knew that Danger would go crazy for these Barbie shoes!
As part of the event, the generous folks at Famous Footwear offered up raffle prizes for the Atlanta mom bloggers in attendance. Prizes included gift cards to Famous Footwear, Office Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond -- and THREE lucky ladies got to go 'shoe crazy' and fill up a table with as many shoes as we could in only 30 seconds, and then KEEP them! Seriously, a dream shopping trip!
The absolute best part? Famous Footwear donated the dollar amount of our 'shoe crazy' prizes to a local Atlanta charity that provides children with back-to-school clothing and supplies. We raised over $780 last night! You can watch the video of bloggers going 'Shoe Crazy' shopping here. (Thanks, Meghan!)
Use the hashtag #MyVictory to capture and celebrate the little victories that make life sweet. Whether it's finding the one pair of shoes that you've been searching everywhere for, completing your back-to-school shopping in just one trip, or supplying your family with several pairs of awesome shoes, we all celebrate these victorious moments.
Given the opportunity to go 'shoe crazy,' what styles would you gravitate to? Do you have a favorite shoe from the Famous Footwear back-to-school styles?
I received compensation in exchange for sharing my experiences with the new fall shoe fashions. All opinions come from my own personal experiences.
