Spring Fashion Show Planning

Well, I have been so bad with my blog for shoe club- if you were looking at my blog, you would think that we haven't been doing any events. We've been doing a lot of fun things. We had a great event at Red Sky earlier this month to kick off the new year. The theme was sexy boots- members turned up in some very awesome boots. Shoebuy.Com donated a $50 gift certificate for the winner of the Best-in-Boots pink carpet walk-off. Guests also got to enjoy some complimentary Double Cross Vodka cocktails and appetizers. It was a lot of fun.

We are working on our Step into Spring Fashion Show at Copley Place which will be on Thursday, April 19, 6:30pm. It is going to be so much fun, I really can't wait! Copley Place coordinates all the stores that participate in the show and they handle all the event set-up and preparation. I sent out the email to the shoe club members this morning to recruit members who would like to model in the show. It was amazing the response that we got. We decided to expand the number of models- we will now have 30 models. We had 10 in our fall show. I had well over 50 emails from ladies wanting to model and I'm still getting more emails tonight. It is really great how many people want to be involved. It took a long time to go through all the emails earlier tonight, put their info into an excel list and write back to everyone- I still haven't gotten to respond to every email. I worked on a first come, first serve basis for the most part and I also tried to mix it up so that we got models that represented different sizes. One of my favorite things about our fashion shows is that they represent 'real' women- we have a variety of ages and sizes- just the way things are in real life. I know that's what other people like about our shows too.

We have some great food/drink sponsors on board as well. Bulldog Gin is our official hard liquor sponsor- they will be making special cocktails for our guests. We're also close to finalizing a beer sponsor and I'm working on a wine vendor as well. Michelle, who is on our Project Smile board, started a cupcake business- she has done cupcakes for a couple of our events now and they are delicious. She will be there along with Finale which is a restaurant known for its fabulous desserts. Popchips will also be giving out samples along with Saka Water. We're also working on obtaining other food sponsors. There is a new restaurant which will be opening soon in Copley Place- right next to where we do our show actually, so hopefully they will like to provide some appetizers for our guests as well.

There is so much more to write about- I can't wait two months to blog again. Shoe Club is such a fabulous part of my life- I want to keep sharing our stories. I will be blogging again very soon! Until then- keep spreading the shoe love!
