One hot heel giveaway!

Well readers...it's your lucky stinkin' summer because I have yet another giveaway! This time we're givin' away HIGH HEELS! Yep, it's maybe my most favorite-est thing in the whole wide world, and KM2 shoes is making our high-heel dreams come true. I have to say these heels are fab-yoo-lus (especially since I recently welcomed KM2's gorgeous 'Kristin' heels into my own high heel collection!). They are true to size, extremely comfy, and have that unique design that's truly eye-catching! You can purchase KM2 shoes online or in stores near you. I love the story of this company too--three sisters founded KM2, Megan, Katelyn and Mattison Gelber, after growing up with two very fashion-forward parents. Their mid-western roots and life experiences in New York & Los Angeles have caused these ladies to develop a unique style, rooted in nostalgia, with an edgy flare! I asked them a few questions about to help us all get to know them better and loved what they had to say...

Tell us a bit about KM2 shoes and how you got started.
We grew up with our dad in the shoe business and loved shoes because we were always the sample size! We always got dressed with our shoes first. I think having a shoe company was always in the back of our head--and a great dream--but you never think that you actually can do something like that, especially at our age. I remember sitting in on one of Kate's marketing classes at UCLA (I was playing hookie on mine). The professor got everyone's background (ours was shoes) and had us for a homework assignment create a shoe for this girl who couldn't find her perfect heel. The idea was that a business isn't as hard as you think, and if you can give someone exactly what they want (and you love what you do), then you should be in business! The next day after literally buying rubber at Home Depot and leather from vintage jackets, we were learning how to make shoes from scratch and create a concept we loved. We got the help of a cobbler, prayed a lot, had a few super glue accidents--and from there KM2 was born.

KM2 shoes came about because we wanted to give every woman exactly what she wanted in a fabulous pair of shoes. That's also where the customizing came in--we create styles from our classic constructions, and clients are able to tweak them if they so desire or keep them as we designed.

WHERE or WHO do you draw fashion inspiration from?
Inspiration comes a lot from looking at runways and converting them into my own world. Right now I think Prada, Balmain, Dsquared, Alexander Wang...I'm loving what they are putting out as far as footwear goes. We get inspired by characters too. We design around characters we love and put ourselves in their life situations and think,
"If I were her what would I be wearing here?"

Having our own design studio changes everything too. I dream an amazing shoe idea and wake up and work with it until I get it right. Sometimes if you sketch something, it looks great on paper but doesn't translate. We have the ability to get it right every time and be hands on.


If you could give us ONE fashion tip, what would it be?
Start with shoes first! Everything else will fall into place. My dad taught us that if you have amazing shoes and accessories, you can pull off anything.

What is your fashion philosophy?
Ohhh I think I just put my answer in the last question. Don't ever be afraid. If you love it, rock it!
