For the past three years, I have worked for the most wonderful retail store called Yarid’s that is known for luxury shoes and handbags. It is a dream come true to work in a century-old family business that is led by two women – sisters – who have influenced me to be my own boss and to style my life the way I want to see it.
This love of good shoes – the ones that you wear to take you places – is what prompts today’s post. I am very excited to announce that, after a series of interviews, I have been selected to represent Sarah Flint as a brand ambassador. If this is your first introduction to Sarah Flint, let me tell you all about this fascinating footwear designer, who, like me, began working in a luxury salon at the age of 15.
Who wears “Sarah Flint”? Oh, just Amal Clooney. Just Karlie Kloss. Just Cindy Crawford. Just… most of Hollywood.
Why do these leading ladies wear Sarah Flint? Simply put, these are the types of shoes (from casual to special occasion) that are sophisticated and stylish without compromising fit and function. These are the shoes that feel like a glove on your feet from the time you slip them on to the time you place them back in the box. Each shoe is classic and timeless with unlimited options for wear.
As I build my college and post-college wardrobe, I am mindful that investment pieces need to be chosen with care given my student finances! This is why I am a big fan of the best-selling flat called Natalie, which I ordered in black leather to go with so many of my year-long outfits.
The Natalie shoe is soft and buttery, the interior is silky, and the look is serious elegance. The tiny, off-centered bow brings a lady-like quality to this perfect flat.
Why Sarah Flint? Well, I am a follower of female entrepreneurs who believe in their dream so much that they put their name on it. In the founder’s own words:
“I started my namesake brand in 2013, having dreamed my whole life of designing footwear. I studied for seven years at Parsons, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and Ars Sutoria in Milan. After graduating, I pursued investors, drove across the country to host trunk shows, and built relationships with customers until I finally achieved my big break…”
As a brand ambassador, I will share my honest opinions and styling tips with you, hoping that you discover a style that becomes your personal trademark as well! I will be posting photos and stories on Instagram, and I will be re-sharing this media on Facebook and LinkedIn.
Like the ladies I work with and work for, there is much to be said for strong women with strong values. It is important to fill our circle with mentors who are intelligent and inspiring, and always caring and kind. It is a privilege to walk in their shoes!
