This post will be the last on my NY trip. I wanted to share two of my favorite websites that were introduced to me at the IFB Conference.
First up~ TheFind
This site is a one stop shop for basically, anything defined as a lifestyle product. You simply sign on and then type in what you are shopping for(example: Red Chloe Flats). The search engine pulls up several pictures of the like- item, links of where you can purchase direct and the cost. One word – AMAZING. Bludress is working on adding our site to TheFind. Let me know what you think!
Jeff Silverman is quickly on his way to replacing Michael Kors as my “shoe crush”. First off, his tag-line is beyond perfect…. “You desire it. We make it.” Jeff has been designing shoes for about 30 years and most recently worked with Steve Madden. His business model goes something like this: For between $100 and $200, one can design her own pair of shoes(heels, flats, boots, etc). Simply sign up and fill out information about said “dream shoes”. JeffSilverman will work with each customer in designing and creating their perfect pair. You can choose the style, color, materials and so on. Turn around time is within a few weeks. Once your shoes are created, you have the option to advertise them online and for every pair of “your shoes” that sell, receive a 10-20% commission. They even come wrapped in a custom box with the name you choose for the new creations! I am beyond ecstatic to design and create the Bludress Bootie or maybe the Bludress Ballet Flat…What do you think?
