Epic Shoe Love
Rave, Shoe Lover, Rave
February 28, 2014

Our DSW associates love shoes—they really, really love shoes. So sitting down with them to get their fashion facts is always our idea of a good time. Melissa J., store manager at our Easton store in Columbus, OH, had tons to say about her two great loves. And what are those you ask? Her husband and her shoes, obviously!

SHOE COUNT: 111

NICKNAME: Sissy

WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE: Girly, ladylike, diva-ish

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT:
A perfectly fitted black pencil skirt and a beautiful red pump.

FASHION FAUX PAS:
On my wedding day, I had been going, going, going (you know how weddings are!), and I didn’t really get a chance to eat. When we sat down at our reception, I took my first bite of mac and cheese and spilled it all lover my beautiful, lovely, very-white dress. Seriously? It was terrible, but my Tide To-Go pen saved the day—and my dress!

OUTRAGEOUS SHOE STORY:
I’m a hopeless romantic, and I’m head-over-heels in love with my husband, Matt. I have four pairs of shoes that are memories of big moments with him: in my red Nine West pumps we fell in love, in my Mojo Moxy heels he proposed, in my leopard BCBG shoes we had our engagement party, and in my something-blue Audrey Brooke sandals we got married!
