Giveaway: CitySlips

This giveaway is CLOSED.
Congrats to Rachel!

I swear...I normally would tell you I never win anything...

but it seems like I've been winning a bunch of these blog giveaway things lately!

I recently won a pair of CitySlips from another blog, and after contacting the company, they are graciously offering one of you a pair too!

CitySlips is a really cool idea.



Basically, a pair of super cute ballet flats that fold in half.

Why?

Because that way, you can carry them in their matching pouch in your purse or diaper bag...
...still wear your uber fab stillettos...

...and when your toes (inevitably) throb after a few hours, you can pull out your CitySlips, unzip the pouch to become a full size tote...


...pop your fab heels in the tote and keep right on going with your day in comfort!



I wore my CitySlips today, and they are SUPER comfy. And did I mention they are cute too?

I was worried that they would be flimsy (nope), that the folding sole would bug me (nope), or that the design of the rubber bottoms would feel weird (nope).

The only "thing" is that I should have ordered the size small...the sizing is Small: 5-6; Medium: 7-8; Large: 9-10. I wear a size 6.5/7, so I got the Medium...they're not huge or anything, just a note if you fall in between the size range go with the smaller end. FYI.

(Oh, and in case you were wondering, I got the gold ones.)

These would make GREAT bridesmaids gifts after a long night of dancing, perfect for leaving in the trunk for mamas on the go, or a place of refuge whenever your other shoes make you want to cry Uncle!



As usual, you have 5 ways to win:

1) Visit CitySlips and leave a comment telling me which color you would get if you win.
2) Follow me on Twitter.
3) Blog about this giveaway.
4) Facebook about this giveaway.
5) Tweet about this giveaway.

I will pick a winner first thing Friday, March 5th.

Good Luck!

The silver ones are lovely, but the black would go with everything...of course you can never go wrong with gold! But, if I had to choose, I say silver.

By the way, you are SO RIGHT about the kitchenaid mixer! I didn't have one until about 20 years into my soon to be 30 year marriage, and I don't know how I did without it. I can think of lots of things I would give up before my mixer :)

Oh, these shoes look like a GREAT idea!! How convenient, too. I like the black ones because they'd match a lot, but it's hard to resist the lovely silver. What to choose?! ;)

What a cute Idea! I think I would go with either the Silver or Black, both are versatile and I don't really wear gold...

Tough call. Probably black, but I would really have to think about those silver ones. :)

I would get gold ones too!

kdlava said...

I would choose the black! Smart idea!

Michelley! said...

what a neat idea? these shoes are great! i would pick the black ones!

TarynTula said...

How cute are those shoes - and I imagine they would be terribly comfy. Typically I would opt for black - but I think the silver has just a touch of fancy...and who doesn't like fancy?

lynette said...

I love these too! You know me...I would probably get a couple pair :)

lynette said...

I just posted on facebook too :)

Emily B said...

What a fabulous idea...thanks for sharing! I'd love to win, but I might have to order a pair after I deliver our second baby any day now...they just might become one of those "necessities of the diaper bag"! I can't decide between the silver or the black! Thanks for sharing, tami

Meghan said...

My favorite would have to be the gold, but the silver is a very close second choice!

joykerns said...

I'm gunna have to go for the gold! It was just the olympics, right?!

Joyful Weddings and Events said...

I'd for sure get the black ones- they would be great for me for working weddings! If they are really comfy, they would be ideal for me- I usually have heals for when I am in front of guests, but wear flats while changing and for later in the night. What a great idea!

I would pick the black! You can't go wrong with black it goes with everything

I won?!?! Woohoo!!! Now what? I couldn't find an email address to contact you. I'm new to all this blog prize winner thingies. I did win a Spanx bra a while back. That was also random and super cool... My email is happilyheldt at hotmail dot com

Rachel said...

No biggie :) It is also a big stess reliever. I, like you, have an inbetween size foot so now I don't have to worry about small or medium ;)

Although I am thinking about getting a cute pair of slipper socks to wear in people's homes who have wood floors and no shoes rules. I get way to cold to go shoeless in CO.
