Convert Shoes Opening Fete

The Window at Convert

I am a shoe fanatic! By this I mean I have an insatiable, undying love of footwear from sneaks to the highest heel and everything in between. I'm not quite sure when my love of shoes started -it might just be genetic. My mother seems to have the same affliction and regularly acquires new styles to add to her impressive collection. Or, once again, it could be the influence of my dance career. Every dancer knows that even though we abuse our feet with countless rehearsals, jamming them into pointe shoes, etc that they really should be cherished. I look at cute shoes as the perfect reward for the body parts that have taken me the farthest in life.

Given my obsession it is not hard to imagine just how excited I was to get an invite to celebrate the opening of eco-chic Convert Shoes. For the last year Convert has stocked fashionable and well made apparel and accessories for the Bay Area's ethically minded style set.  The new shoe store follows in the same vein and also features an exclusive collection of Jeffrey Campbell X Convert vegan styles in addition to brands like TOMS, NATIVE, and, a new fave clog brand, Maguba. The party hosted by well known bloggers Anne, Krystal, and Erica was a total blast and of course I picked up a new pair of shoes! See more pics from the event below!

Fab Find of the Week: Urban Aviary Raw Diamond Ring

While the idea of buying myself a diamond ring seems a little odd (I guess I'm a romantic) the raw beauty of this piece from Urban Aviary has me seriously considering it. This lovely ring and others by my new fave jewelry line are on sale at Fab.com for a couple more hours. If you miss the sale don't worry everything available on Fab is also available on UrbanAviary.co.
