They are some of the most expensive shoes money can buy. Each one hand-stitched and haute couture. They’re Jimmy Choos.
Normally, you’d have to shell out a good $800 to own a pair of these show stopping shoes. But I just got an email from Cincinnati Saks telling me about a contest where you can win an entire Jimmy Choo shoe wardrobe!
Apparently, here’s how it works: You create any outfit using at least one pair of shoes from the Jimmy Choo 24:7 collection and save it on this Closet Couture site. You can style outfits using Choo handbags, too. Contest ends on April 10th. Jimmy Choo will pick the three winners to receive a shoe wardrobe.
Not sure what they’re basing their decision on (doesn’t even explain this in the contest rules either) but I do know that there are Jimmy Choos at stake so I will be creating lots of outfits on this site to hopefully fit their fancy. Can you believe that? They’re not just giving away one pair. They’re giving away a whole wardrobe of these posh pumps! (I did some digging and it only ends up being three shoes they’re giving away, but still, that’s pretty good!)
After playing with this Closet Couture site to submit my first look, I’ve decided I REALLY like it. You can “follow” certain designers and/or stores, and see what their latest and greatest stuff is. You can style your outfit using the dresses, tops, skirts, pants, belts, blazers, shoes, etc on the site. It looks like you can even upload pics of your own clothing to incorporate those items into the outfits you style on the site. I didn’t try that uploader function out yet, but I love the concept.
I did, however, create a look that I absolutely LOVE! For the past month, I’ve been on the look out for a pretty white dress for our Night in White event this weekend (tickets are almost sold out by the way, get yours today!). I had in my mind that I didn’t want a bright white, I wanted it to be kind of a winter white/cream or even beige-y color. I actually really liked the dress Stacy London was wearing when I interviewed her last week. In that interview, she mentioned that nude, beige, and other muted tones are in for Spring/Summer, so I for sure want to get a dress in one of those colors.
I found the perfect dress and shoe for this week’s big event! (Pictured below – using Closet Couture’s cool outfit sharing tool!) Now, all I need to do is find an extra $1200 laying around to purchase this lush look. :-/ Hey, a girl can dream, right?

And while we’re talking about Choos, we published an interesting article on Cincy Chic a while back about heels raising havoc on foot health – and why Jimmy Choos are an exception to the rule. Click here to read the article and learn why you get what you pay for when you buy Choo’s shoes.
