The Odd Slipper Soiree!

The hunt for petite items that fit isn't just restricted to clothing - as I'm sure most of you know, petite shoes are also hard to find (a fact I've discussed before...). That's why I was so excited to hear about The Odd Slipper, an online shoe company with a terrific campaign - not only do they make affordably-priced shoes, but they allow you to be a part of the design-making process by voting monthly on your favorite piece. 

Last night, I had the opportunity to attend The Odd Slipper's "RC Soiree" at The Little Shoe Store in NYC. I'll admit I was a bit skeptical of the quality of the shoes initially, if only because they're so affordable - but in all honesty, they exceeded my expectations in terms of material, quality, and comfort.
I'm loving these leopard printed pumps with gold trim, as well as the gold glitter "Rose" pumps in the photo above.

I loved the gold-studded "Kaja", but the "Sophie" open-toed booties were above and beyond my favorite. The leather is soft and makes these really comfortable to walk in - not easy to accomplish with a 4-inch heel. 

The Odd Slipper carries shoes in sizes ranging from 3-6, and prices ranging from $34-$174. Learn more about how their process works here, and sign up to vote on their designs! I'm aiming to do an interview with The Odd Slipper's founder, Sindy, sometime in the coming week - so stay tuned for that, too! And I'll end with a photo of the delicious treats that were at the launch, courtesy of The Spot Dessert Bar, and a photo of my outfit last night...

Blazer, H&M Size 2; Shirt, Express (very old); Pants, ASOS Size 1.


  1. Thanks for posting this! I wear a size 4 and it's always a nightmare for me to find shoes.  Definitely going to check The Odd Slipper out. :)


  2. I feel your pain! These shoes are definitely worth a try - I forgot to mention in my post, but there's also free shipping! 

  3. Cute outfit! Love the cobalt pants and blazer. Hopefully, we'll run into each other again and actually have the opportunity to chat! 

  4. Oh good! You went! I saw the email about that but then totally forgot to post post/tweet about it for NYC gals. Looking forward to the interview with Sindy.

  5. Thanks! And yes, fingers crossed that we do - I haven't come across many other petite bloggers based in NYC.

  6. Nope, not yet. None of the styles have really called out to me yet. =)
