I’m a proud Brand Ambassador for ShoeDazzle, which is an online fashion subscription service based in El Segundo, California. ShoeDazzle offers amazing shoes which are both fashionable and timeless. Last month I was fortunate to attend the very first ShoeDazzle meetup on the east coast, held in New York, New York. This southern belle graciously packed her bags and headed straight for The Big Apple to meet virtual friends I’ve been interacting with but never had an opportunity to meet.
Upon arriving on Friday, I met up with three other fellow ambassadors at the Marriott Courtyard Midtown East Hotel. We spent the evening getting acquainted since we were my roommates for the next two days.

Day 2, Saturday afternoon was our first official meeting in Times Square at the famous red bleachers. The anticipation was killing me but I was thrilled to finally meet the ShoeDazzle management staff who makes the program successful, and the other brand ambassadors from all around the world. It was amazing to hear how far some of the ladies traveled. The furthest was from Hawaii. Can you say WOW?!

After the initial meet and greet, our assignment which was an ice breaker, was to unleash our inner blogger and team up with other ambassadors for a NY-inspired street style scavenger hunt. There were several places/objects where we had to take fun photos.
I quickly teamed up with another fellow ambassador to tackle this challenge head on. This Sole Sister and I held it down for the ShoeDazzle Takes NY Street Style Scavenger Hunt, and had so much fun. She definitely has an eye for photography.
Let the games begin! Our first official photo was with a Street performer. I always wanted to see the Statue of Liberty. I guess I can cross this one off my bucket list. Well, sort of! : )
Up, Up, Up and Away! There was no harm in doing a little shopping during our scavenger hunt.
Next we took street style photos with taxi’s which was easy breezy
The Subway station was the perfect location for taking photos. #neverapologizeforbeingdope
We heard the sirens scream! It dawned on me that we were setting this city on fire, so we needed a fire hydrant #ShoeDazzlesTakesNY
As you can see, I’m really getting into this photo shoot #fanplease
Minding my own business singing “Lady Cab Driver”by Prince…. Hmmm! I just noticed the message on the cab and expression on taxi drivers face. #speechless #onlyinNY

We took a short break and next on the agenda was meeting at 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar for cocktails, appetizers and treats.

It was such a pleasure to have a little more time to get acquainted with the ShoeDazzle management team. I am forever grateful to these ladies.
The cupcakes were scrumptious. I couldn’t stop eating them. #jesustakethewheel

Day 3 began with a lovely brunch with the gorgeous ShoeDazzle Ambassadors at Parker & Quinn at the Refinery Hotel. We had an amazing time and talked about suggestions for the next meet up. After brunch it was time to say goodbye and head back to North Carolina.
We’re having a toast to new friendships and of course ShoeDazzle.
My choice was smoked salmon and eggs which was absolutely delicious.
I loved the ShoeDazzle swag bags, and the umbrella is coming in handy given all the rain lately.
I had a wonderful time. Goodbye New York! Until we meet again… #tobecontinued
There are no other words to describe the ShoeDazzle meetup other than epic! It’s such an honor to be a part of this amazing program. I left New York with new friendships and feeling better connected to my fellow Sole Sisters. I can’t wait to see all of my new friends again!
