DIVA-GIRLS just wanted to share my first newsletter from my wonderful personal shoe shoppers. If you have not joined in on this fantastic DIVA-LIFESTYLE you should. Enjoy the article and take a look at what is up and coming for us DIVAS.
My goal for 2010 is to create a style that reflects my personality. My look has been stuck in college-casual mode for 10 years. I'm over it! Where do I start?
— Toronto, Canada
Step out of the college years and into a new decade, Natalie. Start with things that inspire you: favorite colors, films, art or music. Whose style do you admire? Ask yourself what you want your look to say about you? Fashion is no different now than when you played dress-up as a child, so don't take things too seriously and be willing to try things on. You can always take them off! Shoes are a great place to start changing things up. The right shoe can transform many an outfit.
Style question? Fab pics of you in your ShoeDazzle shoes? Email us and we may feature you in a future newsletter. Note, we cannot respond to every message.

Happy New Year, everyone! This year, make a resolution to get a little daring with your fashion. Try some looks you've never tried; instead of being conservative chic, get a little edgy. If you're super trendy, add a classic blazer or some pearls to your look for more dimension. Let the
stylists push your fashion envelope – that's their job! Shoes are the best way to introduce a new attitude into your wardrobe, so we've packed a lot of great how-to tips into this edition. We're also so excited to begin our new Heart Healthy. Style Ready. campaign for American Heart Month in February. We know that feeling our best helps us look our best, so we're sharing the best ways to get heart healthy on our website. There are more details on our campaign inside. Enjoy ladies, and be daring!
Love & Shoes,
Mineral Diva Eyes in all the colors needed to complete these looks.
Change is what New Year's resolutions are all about. Every year, we resolve to evolve, and the new decade demands nothing short of a total revolution! So say goodbye to yester-you and let these infallible trends encourage some brave, image-renovating style!
We dare you to…
LUXE & HARLEY 2010 will undoubtedly be a wild ride; especially if you take our challenge to step out of your comfort zone and into the fashion forefront with strappy boots and pumps. Harley races full throttle into a new era of fashion all wrapped up in overlapping straps and buckles. Skinny jeans and leggings? Predictable. Instead, showcase your multi-dimensional side by pairing dominatrix boots with a demure knee-length skirt or shirtdress at the office or art gallery opening. Utterly chic and unexpected. No less chic, but with a softer side, Luxe combines the coverage of slouchy leg-warmers with the toe-exposure of a sexy sandal. Confused? Definitely not. The "sleeve" look is sure to be one of the biggest trends of the year. At the long end of things, play up the ankle emphasis with high-contrast leggings in liquid mercury or electric 80's hues. At the short end, a mini-skirt in black is easy, but we promise you'll have more fun in 2010 with the new LBD (little bright dress) and lots of leg. Maintain your mettle with metal accessories in silver and pewter with either style. What we love about the strappy trend is that it offers daring biker toughness while giving us sufficient coverage to feel warm and secure in our fashion statements for the new decade.
Flaunt some curves!
DivaGlam 88 Shades in Matte
CORINNA & BOULEVARD With shoes like Boulevard and Corinna, the only curves people will be staring at will be on your feet! Boulevard flaunts its curves and your ankle with its distinctive vamp, while Corinna's curvaceous heel is sure to make others take notice when you walk away. With sexy cutouts and a little peek of skin, these shoes are the perfect way to introduce some sex appeal into any outfit. Pair Boulevard with something flowy and feminine, like a brightly colored wrap dress or a floral patterned, floor length dress, for some contrast. Corinna will spice up a black or grey high-waisted wool skirt, turtleneck sweater and richly-hued scarf. Some patterned tights would make the look complete. Go get 'em girls!
Bolt toward spring!
ENVY & BILLIE Studious style mavens will attest to the fact that studs and brads will remain firmly embedded in the fashion scene through the next few seasons. For those of you looking to stay one step ahead, try forecasting the coming season in Envy or Billie. Yes that's right; an off-season prelude to spring in a riveting, riveted shoe is the perfect way to overhaul your look without risk of faux pas. Whereas you might pair Envy with vibrant peacock hues for spring, hint at jewel tones with muted, sorbet versions of purple and teal. Billie prefers mauve and peach to coral and orange. For both, dare to avoid centurion looks; instead, seek out voluminous pieces like gauzy cardigans and ballet skirts that, while light and colorful, still echo the hazy days of winter that (unfortunately) stand between your fashion fast-forward style and the current season. Transition the intensity of your color choices with the changing weather and onlookers will continue to be dazzled by your studded style well into spring.
