She isn’t afraid to push the limits of fashion and think outside of the box, how refreshing! The captions are brief and girly— and we absolutely love it!

Kimberly Lyn, The Souls of my Shoes
Kimberly had us at, “You can never have enough shoes, especially black ones”. Like us, she fully understands that shoes speak a language to the heart and each pair has something to say. The Souls of my Shoes is a blog Kimberly started in 2009 to serve as a creative and intellectual outlet after she rediscovered her love for fashion. She provides insights about fashion with a concentration on footwear, which we couldn’t help but adore. She has been featured in publications such as FLARE magazine, FashionMagazine.com, Much Music, The Kit, and the Toronto Star. In addition, NOW Magazine named her as one of the next up and coming Toronto fashion bloggers! She knows a whole lot about fashionable shoes and we love that we can gain so much knowledge from her!
Ashley, Pursuit of Shoes
She is an LA girl born and raised. Graduating from USC in 2008 with an Accounting Degree, Ashley went straight to work after she completed school. After two years of work at Big 4 Accounting Firm, she decided to follow her heart and jump into fashion! We admire her huge shoe obsession, it’s something we both have in common. Her style is also similar to ours, sexy yet sophisticated. She is able to rock a fitted midi-dress like no other and is never afraid to show just a little bit of skin. She loves lace, denim and body hugging silhouettes. She is so personable, relatable, and inspirational. It’s safe to say we have all been there when Ashley said, “When I see a shoe I absolutely love, it literally takes my breath away”. Know the feeling?? Ashley describes her shoe obsession as beginning in high school, or possibly earlier, giving blame to the 12 years of private school uniforms, and only “predominately all black or white” tennis shoes allowed. That could make a girl go shoe crazy! She writes about beautiful shoes, amazing shoe sales, celebrity shoe choices, and much more!
