Coming Strong this #ShoeSaturday with @AttrentiShoes New York City Shoe Launch held @GansevoortMPD Plunge Bar + Lounge

How has summer been treating you so far my butterflies?

For me it's been a bit of something I have backed far, far away from lately. Blog Events. You know those things we attend and cover that don't mostly pay us, you know 'free commercials'.

I haven't been about them for awhile now. There I said it.

It's been a rare event to get me out of hiding. I have attended more this summer than my usual, just slower than my normal getting them posted.

Then one day TWO events that for the most part overlapped time wise, lured me out of hiding, so like any NYC smarty pants I attended the one closest to me first, then scrambled like a maniac to get to the second one.

I haven't yet covered the first one, mums the word on that one because I want to work on something special for YOU too, so I am sort of covering that day out of order (you will find that happening a lot this year - what I can say, I have been so busy living my life that it's left me with less time than usual to blog about it.)

I arrived too late to enter a great raffle that was drawing literally when I got there, here is a shot of the CEO drawing the lucky winner:

About Attrenti

Attrenti is a comfort high heel shoe developed for socially active and fashion minded women. It's an adaptable and adjustable high heel shoe that combines comfort and style. Their patent-pending clip and rail system allows straps to shape around a woman’s individual foot to provide a superior fit. Their removable and adjustable straps give women the ability to change their look throughout the day. Each shoe is able to be transformed into countless combinations on one shoe base.  Attrenti's heel also features interchangeable 4 inch heels that utilize a simple push button system. The shoe comes in a variety of colors, designs and themed specialty heels, and women are able to switch from stiletto to block heels with just a click of a button.

Here is a  video that describes the shoes in much better detail and lets you see the system in action:




This was my second rooftop event of the day which was nice, those views are an amazing reminder of just what it is I love about this city. Those moments above the hustle and bustle of the city are so peaceful and when they align with sunset the view is even more spectacular.

Sadly,  we didn't get to try them on personally so I borrowed the PR rep and asked if she would mind if I took some 'shoe cam' and she was kind enough to comply:

Here is a Lifestyle Video of the shoes:



That Shoe Jewelry Box for the heels and crystals in that video though! YAS and YES to that!

THE GIFT BAG:

Gift Bag from Attrenti Shoe Launch























This is the first time a gift bag completely knocked it out the park for me, it was literally as if someone had personalized it to me specifically, the contents included:

- The show stopper was the POET+JOY Wrist Wrap Clutch.  Mine is called "Graphite Pop w/Bag Swag" (which is the dangles!). I love the metallic accent and tassel on this one. I am a handbag freak. I may have let out a squeal when I saw this! But it is the hand-written note that made my day. It's an art that I thought was slowly dying.

The note said:

"We hope you enjoy wearing your Wrist Wrap Clutch as much as we love designing them. It is designed to keep your hands free to mix, mingle, & be your fabulous self!

Slip it on your wrist, climb into your happy shoes, & join us on the adventure we call Poet + Joy" ~ Mel Poet & Joy Chapman

CLASSY!

The Nude Bon Bon and Merlot Fizz colors from Poet + Joy are next on my hit list!

- The "If You Feel Like Dancing Earrings in Turquoise and Gold" by Ettika made me smile - I love Turquoise, especially in summer, these earrings will get so much use!

- The silver "Spring Bracelet" by Durrah Jewellery with the magnetic travel closure, sterling silver plated in rhodium is also going to get a ton of use. It pairs perfectly with the Wrap Bag by Poet + Joy too.

- Repairing Essence Daily Moisturizing Lotion by Deity - This is actually for HAIR, not face and I can't wait to try it out with Amino Acids, Herbs, Collagen, Jojoba and Vitamins I am sure my hair is going to drink it in.

- So Cozy Splash Swim Leave-In Treatment + Detangler is a lightweight conditioning treatment that protects, repairs and restores damage caused by pool chemicals, salt water and the sun. Spray on dry or damp hair, spray a bit on BEFORE your fun in the sun to protect against sun exposure, as it contains high doses of Vitamins A, D, E as well as UVA/UVB filters and antioxidants and vitamins.

- Suitable You was actually the tote bag all these goodies were contained in, I am not familiar with them but look forward to learning more! They help you build a work wardrobe that fits your style and budget. and having the clothes come to me so I can try them on at home instead of a dressing room sounds like a total SCORE to me!

- There was a cute high heel shoe necklace in there too which is on the right side of the Wrap Clutch in the photo above.

MY TAKE:

I love that you can buy the base for your normal shoe size, but if you have issues like a high instep or are wide width you can size up the strap, you can place the front strap where you need to in case you have a bunion, they are literally conforming to YOUR particular foot. Check out the Product Builder page, The Attrenti Shoe Kit comes with a shoe base pair, 3 different heel widths and a pair of Swarovski Crystals for $299.95 (regularly $399.95) during pre-order only and straps are sold separately. I also love the different widths of the heel, I have never been a stiletto girl and like a wider heel thickness.

And if anyone has 'problem child' feet like me and have had to go custom, you know just how sky high custom shoes can be, I can assure you it's WAY more than this and they are no where near as cute.

The swag bag was literally all that, but didn't include the shoes because they are still in pre-order.

I definitely need a pair of review units in my life as soon as they are available. I already hit the product builder and built my dream pair, being a New Yorker I will start with Black of course, with criss cross toe strap, criss cross wide ankle strap and since I am an April Baby, the Swarovski Crystal has to be 'Diamond' for me of course! I am also living for the Ruby Crystal, as Red is an Aries color.  I see some cute Instagram posts in my foot future!

  1. That is so cool! I wore high heels once as a joke. I was only in them for a half hour, and it was torture.

    1. @Ben I seriously just laughed so hard, trying to picture that! They can often feel like torture devices after a long day or in this crazy walking and commuting city where I spend a lot of time on my feet!

  3. I have been cutting back on events, too. It has to be something I REALLY want to cover to get me out to an event lately.

    1. @Masshole Same here! And for the most part very little makes me want to make that public transportation commute in New York City lately! Especially with the heat and humidity of summer being in full swing right now!

  4. You are so honest about your attendance in these events. However those are pretty cool shoes even though I don't wear heals too often.

    1. @Melissa - I try to be fair-handed, but I am always going to be honest. I'd rather take on less events, but be jazzed about the possibilities than to take on a ton of them, and then end up not feeling really passionate about them. I never commute with them, but when events warrant them I change into them when I arrive! :-)

    1. @GayNYCDad - I love having a wide variety of styles, different situations warrant different shoes, but I really love that these are convertible and made to fit each unique foot, well, uniquely :-)

  7. Heels can be ridiculously uncomfortable. This sounds like a great solution for it.

    1. @Pam So true! But as a tech lover I love that technology is being utilized to make those things we use everyday a bit better. A Very "Techy" Solution for a beloved Fashion Accessory. Let's face it some corporate environments still REQUIRE women to wear heels. And if you invest in a comfortable pair it's the best investment you can possibly make as you need them both day and evening for the most part.

  11. An adjustable heal? I am usually not big on wearing heels, but if they are adjustable, then I might actually like them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. @Cheap Is The New Classy - That is literally one of the best things about them. I like the idea of a thicker heel during the day when I am running around or at work for more stability and then switching to a thinner heel in the evening, carrying the extra heel is a lot lighter and less bulky than carrying a whole separate pair of evening shoes to change into if I am going to straight to dinner or a date.

  12. What! Those shoes look fabulous. I'm sorry you missed the drawing. As for the shoes, I'm not sure what colors I'd pick, probably white though, since it's summer and white goes with everything. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. @rosey - that's the great thing, you can pick a base color and mix it up with the straps - I would go nuts with the different strap colors, I featured a handbag awhile back that had changeable straps and this is still literally one of my favorite handbags, check it out here: http://www.ascendingbutterfly.com/2010/05/spring-into-bags-special-feature-win_22.html

  14. Wow. This is so close to custom- made shoes, if it is not what it is. I would choose Nude for the strap color. Let me check out their website and see that different strap designs they have. You really got me interested.

  15. Thank you for providing the links to Attrenti shoes. It is something I would really love to look into. Not every shoe is a "fit all." I would love to have a custom made shoe that would conform to my feet's size and shape.

  16. those shoes are crazy! I'd love some!

  17. OH MY! Imagine the convenience of these heels when traveling. Love that it's easy to store and it's so versatile. It's a great concept and one that we're so prepared for!

  18. what a fun and gorgeous event to attend! You are one lucky girl and I would have gotten out of my house for that too!

  19. I would love to try these shoes. I have a hard time wearing heels but I love the way they look. It sounds like it was a fun event.
