Epic Shoe Love
Rave, Shoe Lover, Rave

We love getting up close and personal with our DSW insiders. Erin, our Director of Interactive Experience, dishes with us on her passion for shoes, style, and all things fashion!

SHOE COUNT: 100

NICKNAME: Marie-ski

WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE: Classic, smart, chic

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT:
My Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. They're the most expensive shoes I've ever bought, but let me tell you they were SINGING to me when I saw them! (And they may or may not have their own special spot in my house, outside of my closet. Just saying.)

FASHION FAUX PAS:
I'm a total T.O.F.F.I. girl (that's a tear-out-for-fashion-inspiration girl). Images of outfits, bags, tops, shoes, jeans, you name it—if I love it, I tear it out. My husband, who hates clutter, can't stand it so I hide them all around our house in shoeboxes. I can't stop—it's an obsession!

OUTRAGEOUS SHOE STORY:
I am the worst packer ever. If I'm going on a seven-day trip I pack eight outfits. I know you're supposed to economize, but it's impossible for me. I once went on a two-day trip and I brought two stuffed suitcases (with five pairs of shoes). It's nuts, I know—but hey, it's all in the name of fashion!
