style files: new balance shoes & a contest

I am so excited to share this post with you all!  Do you remember the giveaway I hosted back in February when I was able to give away a pair of Corso Como Alfazema heels compliments of www.OnlineShoes.com?  Well, I partnered with www.OnlineShoes.com again!  This time, I was given the opportunity to design a pair of New Balance Shoes and in particular a pair of Women's New Balance Shoes for me which is perfect timing because I was in need of a new pair of sneaks!  I am in a competition with three other lovely bloggers and need your votes to win!  Plus, just for voting you are entered in to win your own pair of New Balance 993's!

I loved being able to customize the color of my New Balance 993's on the New Balance website.  I loved that I was able to see what my shoe was going to look like before I finalized my design.  This may seem petty, but I really loved the fact that I could have my monogram embroidered onto the shoe!  Ahh...  Those little details get me every time! 

Well, I am sure you are dying to see my shoe now aren't you?  Before I show you my design, I want to give a shout out to a couple of the students in Joshua's and my Student Ministry.  We had some students over at our house and we all huddled around our computer and collectively came up with the design!  I wanted it to be a collaborative effort with a variety of people so I could develop a really awesome and marketable shoe because, if I win, my shoe will be produced as a limited edition and sold on www.OnlineShoes.com - how awesome is that?!

Cue the drum roll....


I really like how it turned out - it's not super girly, but not all boy.  I think it is the perfect balance of colors and that it is gender neutral which was one of my goals of creating a marketable shoe for www.OnlineShoes.com.  What do you think?

If you would be so kind to go vote for me, I would love you forever - seriously, I will love you.  Cue Whitney Houston's power ballad "I Will Always Love You"....  Please hop on over here to vote for me!

Oh, and another shout out to my amazing friend and photographer, Matt Whytsell!  He truly is a talented photographer and you should go check his work out on his website.  Here are some more of my favorite images:
