We are only a few weeks away from getting WORN #9 to the printers, which means soon enough there will be new copies of WORN on the stands (that’s good). However, this means that they will be replacing our shoe issue, currently on stands (that’s bad). While WORN #8 will still be available for sale certain places (hintedy hint hint), we can understand if you’ve already read it several times, cover to cover (it was a pretty slamming issue, if I do say so myself) and are now looking for another way to fulfill your footwear fix. Fret not, dear readers, for I have scoured the blogosphere to find you three websites necessary for the Louboutin lover in all of us. Without any further a-shoe (oh look, I still had another pun in me)….
Shoes and Your Mom is a spin-off of the personal style blog, Lulu and your Mom. While Lulu remains the ringleader of both blogs, SAYM is a buying and selling community that is run just as much by the people who frequent it. Like an incredibly stylish version of Craigslist, the site is a service aimed at those needing to clear out space in their closets. Through Lulu and her two interns, sellers display their shoes (and dresses and coats and other items of clothing) that are up for sale on the site, for prospective buyers to browse and purchase. One of the perks of having an online market based on a popular blog is that all the items are screened before they are put up for sale, so it isn’t necessary to dig through pages of cheaply made knockoffs in order to find a pair of Marc Jacobs flats. There is also a diverse readership, which means that many different shoe sizes and tastes are accounted for, ranging from a pair of gold Prada mary janes to white slouchy Balenciaga boots.
