Ladies, Help Your Guy Get It Right This Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it's that time of year for dropping hints, such as, hints for a new pair of custom designed shoes.  Now, we understand that there may be more pressing hints that might be at the top of your hint-dropping list (such as, for example, an engagement ring), and if that's the case, we hope that you'll keep us in mind for your one-of-a-kind wedding shoes or for getting your bridesmaids together to design their own bridesmaids' shoes.  But, if you're looking for something more unique than a box of chocolates, a little something that you can slip into for that "I feel oh so [fill in your own blank]" feeling, then might we suggest you point your devoted to our gift certificates page where he can pick up a gift certificate for you to design a pair of your own shoes. 

And for those ladies who just as happy to spend the evening among the fairer sex, perhaps you should plan a Girls' Night In with your best girlfriends to design your own shoes at an Atelier Shoes' shoe party

After all...a box of chocolates won't make your legs look longer.

The Weather Outside is Frightful

As anyone who has been reading the news lately knows, it's been a chilly month for the better part of the United States.  With temperatures in Florida threatening the citrus crop, it makes one hesitate in the morning when selecting the day's footwear.  While Uggs might be tempting, consider this--it's a great time of year for suede.  Warm shades of brown, fores green, hunter orange and cream can keep you your most fashionable self and Atelier Shoes can help you design the perfect pair to suit your style... just wait a few weeks on the peeptoes.

Of course, if you've got a tropic vacation planned, now might be the time to indulge in a custom-designed open-toed stiletto to show off those freshly pedied toes.  Go exotic with tropic shades of aqua blue and lime green.
