How long have you worked at The Shoe Hive?

I haven’t started quite yet (I start mid-November 2016) BUT I am super excited! I already feel welcomed into the Shoe Hive family and I can’t wait to start.

Do you have any fun stories or memories of working here?

I don’t have any memories of working here yet but I can say I have shopped here a handful of times. When we have come to visit family in the past, my boyfriends sister always makes a pit stop at the SH to start the weekend for us- and we always feel instantly chic and refreshed!

What’s your favorite thing about working here?

The culture at the SH seems not just a working team of wonderful people, but a family who genuinely cares about each other and their store. They love their customers and everything they sell! And it’s prevalent from upper management down to the weekenders. It was an instant fit.

Who’s your favorite designer that we carry?

Favorite designer- too many to chose from! I love the collection that the SH represents, you can find the perfect shoe to match any occasion or season. I have always loved Sam Edelman for his trendy style and great price point, Tory Burch for her elevated take on classic styles , Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman for both their quality, consistency, and staple pieces that you will wear for years on end, and of course Vince because they simply have fabulous shoes!

What’s your go-to shoe trend?

I am really a sucker for camel pumps, booties, sandals, flats, ANYTHING camel. I feel like you can never have too many camel colored shoes… With that being said I love the chunky heel right now- and come to think of it I think i need to buy some camel colored chunky heels!

Are there any trends you can’t get behind?

I never could get behind the Celine fur sandals… or really any open-toed sandal with fur in it. (However I do secretly love the fur Gucci mule) Also not crazy of the doc martens comeback.

What’s your favorite pair you’ve acquired while working here?

No shoes for me yet… but I know that will change soon enough 🙂 But on another note, I have gotten a fabulous Twig & Twine necklace from SH that I absolutely adore!
