Meeting My Shoe Crush, Sophia Webster

One of my favorite things about living near/in NYC is access. Access to fashion shows, access to sample sales and even access to celebrities. You never know who you're going to run into walking down the street or even grabbing a drink at Starbucks. I've literally bumped into Ben Stiller in Central Park, Harrison Ford waved to me while riding on a bike and I passed right by Woody Allen and Soon-Yi taking a walk. At any given moment there is always something free and or interesting happening in NYC that anyone in the know can attend. One night, Belle got invited to a Vogue party - and I saw that Sophia Webster was having a pop up shop (Webster on Wooster) downtown, so I figured we'd kill two birds with one stone and hit up both for the night. I'm such a HUGE Sophia fan. I'm sure you figured that out as every other pic on my Insta lately has been SW. Her shoes are colorful, playful and comfortable - which is pretty much everything I love in a shoe.

Of course, we first stopped for pictures on the steps of the NYC Midtown Library which was right next to the party at Lord & Taylor.

From head to toe:
  • Jacket: Marshalls, $24.99
  • Dress: Shop Tobi, gifted (also seen here)
  • Bag: Jimmy Choo Lockett, sample sale, $350 (RV $2,895)
  • Fringed belt: Zadig & Voltaire, sample sale, $40
  • Shoes: Sophia Webster Keira Doiley sandals, sample sale, $95 (RV $750)

You can shop my look here:

Thank you to Belle for taking my pics! I shot her on the steps as well. Here she's wearing her new Rebecca Minkoff initialed MAC and studded guitar strap that she got at their last sample sale. Those straps are pretty amazing, right?! They elevate any bag. I wear mine a lot with my Chanel (seen here) because it was a 75% off seasonal bag that came with an ugly short brown strap.

The party was uneventful (it was for Karl Lagerfeld's new collection) but they did have cute free Tattly temporary tattoos - and mine lasted for about 2 weeks after. They're pretty realistic and even my brother thought I got a real tattoo LOL. (You can see my tat on my leg below.) We cut out a little early and headed downtown to Webster on Wooster because when I messaged my contact for SW, he told me Sophia was in the store doing a private meet and greet. My only regret is not getting her to sign my shoes but in retrospect that would have been a little gross asking her to sign my sweaty shoes LOL.

Sophia is such a doll! She was just hanging out in the store and chatting with customers. I actually recognized a bunch of her crew from their Insta stories. If you don't already watch them, you should - they share really cute behind the scenes from their London headquarters.

We ran into Katya at the Vogue party and I invited her along to meet Sophia. I tried taking pics in the birdcage but did look nearly as cute as Sophia.

As for NYC sample sales, there isn't much on the calendar but there are a few good ones!

Rebecca Taylor popped up out of nowhere and started yesterday. I got there a little late and didn't get much. Everything is sample sized which will fit 2-6. Today is the second day so not sure what's left. Sorry no advance notice but I did share on my Insta stories yesterday so be sure you're following along so you don't miss a thing!

I like their shoes but last sale was a little expensive for me. This time they said shoes start at $30 so it may be worth a peek :)

July 7-9
Fri & Sat 10-7, Sun 10-6
Circle Studios, 83A Hester Street

I love her dresses - it's mostly sample sized 4/6 but they do get some stock sizing as well.

Kicking myself for missing their last sale. Won't be making that mistake again...

So far my summer is going nicely. We jumped in the car and drove to Atlantic City with my two nieces so I had 5 kids in tow. Honestly it wasn't that bad because I didn't have any kids under 8 (my Ava) - and they're all pretty good kids. Honestly without littles #momlife is a piece of cake. Don't get me wrong, they can be a handful and I need a break every now and then but it does get easier as they get bigger and more independent.

Ella actually has a photoshoot with Justice today (she's a #girlswithheart brand ambassador) - I'll be sharing behind the scenes on my Insta stories today! Yeah, I'm one proud mama.

Wishing you all a happy 4th of July weekend!




  1. Can't believe my nightmare job prevented me from meeting Sophia! Hopefully it can happen for me one day too.

  2. That's amazing! Love your shoes too btw! :)

    xo, Jennifer

  3. That is so awesome that you got to meet Sophia Webster! I love her shoes and the creativity and detail that she puts into the designs are incredible. I can't believe you met her. It would've been cool to have her sign the shoe for sure...maybe the bottom so it's not sweaty. lol. =). I love the amazing bag too - such a fab find! xoxo, Christine

    1. Yeah I would have had her sign the bottom but after running around in those shoes all night I don't think it would have been a good idea to stick them in her face to sign LOL

  4. Omg omg omg!! You got to meet Sophia!!! Must have been so amazing! I am so jealous that you live in a place where so much is going on. Here in Denmark it is not that eventful with that many sample sales. All the good ones are far from where I live..
    I love the oversized denim jacket. You styled it perfectly with the SW heels! Such a great find!

    1. Aww thank you! NYC is always an adventure. I'm glad I'm so close by :)

  5. Wow, what a great event, you've met some fellow bloggers. I follow Katya on Instagram. You girls had a lot of fun there, that's for sure. I wish I could come and meet you all. That would be fantastic. And dare I say, that your shoes are absolutely fabulous! You nailed this look, girl!

    Cheers, Eliza |

  6. I know I've said this before and I'll say it again, you always find the best sales and so jealous you got to meet Sophia! I love her heels too - colourful and vibrant. Everything I stand for ;)

    I think I need to move to NYC and sign up to the Le Hoarder sale updates hehe!!

    1. Sadly they are both sold out but I linked up similar pieces above.

  10. Access. You said it yourself. NYC has everything and there's never a dull moment. I'm so excited I get to go there on Sunday to attend FW although I dread it's gonna be hot... oh well, I managed 99 degrees in Paris during FW there so I guess this will do as well, haha. I'm glad you met your shoe crush Sophia and I must say that tattoo looks authentic. Maybe I should shock some of my friends by getting one as they know how much I dislike tattoos, haha. Thanks for a lovely and uplifting post!

    1. You should totally get a fake tat! And yeah, it's probably gonna be really hot in September! Hope to finally meet you there!

  11. That's so awesome! And I am jealous of all the access that you have to the sample parties and fashion shows! There's always something fun and exciting happening in the city! So awesome that you got to meet your shoe crush! Loving your outfit and hope you had fun.

    1. Thanks! For the most part you have to make things happen around here but it's out there just for asking :)

  12. I love Sophia Webster!! Her shoes are always so elaborate and vibrant like walking on a pair of fairytale! I've seen this pair before and remembering how much I admired the unique butterfly details on the back. What a great find for a steal girlie!!

    xo Sheree

    1. Her shoes are pretty amazing! She's as cute as her shoes!

    1. Ditto - and that pic with your foot in the air didn't come out LOL. And thanks!

    1. I actually don't live in NYC anymore - but I'm literally minutes away. I can be standing on a subway platform in 13 minutes thou :)

  16. I'm reading this post with so much envy right now. I'm a huge SW fan, I love all the colorful and girly details she has on her designs and wish so much I would own a pair. But retail price is sooo expensive. Not only you got yours for $95 at a sale, you also got to meet her in person and take pics with her!!!! Like omg!! I love your fringe skirt too, and you always amaze me with the pieces you find. If you're still in Atlanta, enjoy and happy 4th!

    -Lily from With Love Lily Rose

    1. LOL. Check your local Nordstrom Rack! I got my butterfly pair there for a little over a $100, And it's a fringed belt that I'm wearing over my dress :)

  17. That is so awesome that you met Sophia Webster! She seems like such a sweetheart!
    I feel like NYC is like LA in that sense, there's always a celebrity sighting if you're in the right place at the right time.
    I really love your outfit! It is simple and chic, and the fringed belt adds that edgy element.


    1. LA must be fun for celeb sightings too. Do you ever hit the LA sample sales?

  18. Hey Beautiful,
