Hi there, and thank you for taking a few moments to find out more about me and my Shoes and a Purse website. I have a love/hate relationship with shopping. Love getting new things, but I’m not so crazy about the “going to the store part” of shopping.
Another thing I find daunting when it comes to shopping is trying to find my own style among all the latest fashion trends. I’m at that age where I don’t want to look like I’m 20 and I don’t want to look like I’m 60 if you know what I mean. I like fashion, but I don’t believe we (always) have to follow the latest trends in order to stay fashionable.
If you relate to any of this, I hope you will find my website interesting. Feel free to share with friends and family.
A few words about me
I was born and raised in Norway, which gave me the opportunity to travel throughout Europe. And, when I discovered Italian fashion I was sold on style and quality for life. Italian’s have a knack for style. Whether it’s shoes, purses, clothes, or furniture, there’s just something about the Italian fashion I like.
What I learned from Italian design, is that simple sometimes make the biggest statements. Or as the “they” say: Less is more. Anyway, the few “tricks of the trade” I followed along the way on my shopping trips has allowed me to stay “in fashion” without breaking the bank, and without having to buy “new everything” every new season.
I want to share my experience in the hopes that it will help you find and maintain your style, your way, within your budget. And last but not least, that you find your own style of classic.
I have no idea how many fashion online shopping sites there are, let me just say thousands plus. And with that level of competition, the marketers do what they can to get our focus and attention on the latest “bling” available. We are bombarded daily, by thousands of impressions, and find ourselves making purchases we would have never thought of had it not been for… Advertising, commercials, sounds, music, smells, colors, you name they make it, and we buy it.
With so many options it’s hard to step back and “make sense of it all.” And the consequence, more often than not, is that we lose a sense of our own style.
How we dress and the clothes we wear effects how we walk, talk, feel, and approach the world around us. So, if you’ve been dumped by a boy/girl friend and you don’t feel very good about yourself right now, go put on some sexy underwear, your favorite shoes, get dressed, and see how that changes your gait and mood! Yep, you can trust me on that one!
Practice Makes Perfect
With Shoes and a Purse I hope to create a site of insight and ideas on how to keep up with the ever-changing fashion trends the classical way. Because, the one thing I have learned through all my years of shopping (and yes, it’s decades) is that classic never goes out of style. And sometimes, to be stylish, all you need is… Shoes and a Purse.
If you ever want a suggestion or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to respond.
All the best,
