Happy Birthday To Us Event - Absolutely Audrey Shoe Clips {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

PhotobucketPhotobucketI have never been very into fashion but I always try to make sure I look good when I leave the house.  When Absolutely Audrey contacted me and asked me to review a pair of their shoe clips, I thought it would be a great idea to make some slight changes to shoes that I already own and wear all the time.  What a fantastic way to make your shoes look new and different!

Inspired by Audrey Hepburn, a fashion icon of elegant style, Absolutely Audrey is a unique accessories design company that marries the elegance of vintage-inspired shoe clips with the latest fashion trends. As a young girl, Crisa Mitrou Barriball the founder, was dazzled by the sparkle of her mother's shoe clips. Over time, interest in the clips waned as shoe companies added ornaments directly to shoes. Even so, she saw opportunities everywhere to transform a very simple pair into a work of art with just a little detachable decoration. With the mission to bring the shoe clip trend back, she started Absolutely Audrey in 2003. 

Today Absolutely Audrey sells in some of the most exclusive boutiques in the United States and around the world. Shoe clips have become the "accessory of the accessories" since they can not only be attached on shoes, but also on scarves, handbags, jackets, jeans, shirts, hats and leggings. Absolutely Audrey won the 2010 Best Overall Accessory Brand by Juli B Style Awards.

What Did I Think?

Crisa at Absolutely Audrey sent me a pair of their Gia shoe clips in pink which I promptly clipped to a pair of sandals!  They really do change up the look of a pair of shoes that you've had for sometime.  I love how you can dress up any pair of shoes from plain pumps to sandals like mine.

Not only can you dress up shoes, but you can add these clips to hats and purses to make your belongings look like brand new!  Pink is one of my favorite colors so this pair was perfect for me!
