What’s Next: Trendspotting Feedback Friday with Quirky

Happy Friday lovelies!

If you follow me on Twitter, then you definitely know by now that today I am a guest speaker over at Quirky. As part of their weekly Feedback Friday series, this week they have assembled a panel of Trendspotting experts. Needless to say, I was so excited when they reached out to me to come get in on the fun!

They did a great post over at the Quirky blog, so make sure to check it out.

There are many ways to do this, but the best way to think like a trendspotter is to learn directly from trendspotters themselves. Thus, we decided to go straight to the source, and assemble a stellar group of trendspotting experts for this week’s live Feedback Friday broadcast (Friday, 3pm ET). After a panel discussion on trendspotting in product design, we’ll open the conversation to questions in the chat.

Shoes, Shoes and More Delightful Shoes…

On Wednesday I had the lovely opportunity to go to the Behind Closed Doors VIP party down at Solestruck celebrating their new Spring arrivals and showing off some of the yummy things coming in for next season. With champagne flowing, discounts being handed out and beautiful people trying on some majorly beautiful shoes, it was a recipe for all things wonderful.

They also were playing their fantastic new lookbook On the Road as we all shopped. If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t waste anymore time.

Morgan in shoe lust.

There were so many lovely shoes, but by far my favorite of the night was the United Nude Abstract Rome Hi. What a beauty, right? I clearly wasn’t the only one with an eye for this little diddy either because every time I looked up from my love affair there was a new girl with them slipping onto her foot.

The good news if you didn’t make it to the party? They’re throwing another one! You can always count on these cats to have a fun party, and luckily Spring Break is the perfect excuse.  Details below.

Spring Break party Saturday April 7th, 2012
Solestruck will be kicking of their new pop up with Saltwater Gypsy Vintage & Tnemnroda Jewelry. Expect a DJ, lots of beer, free goodie bags to the first 100 people through the door and wait for it, wait for it… we’ll be giving away 5 pairs of Jeffrey Campbell Litas! Fun will be happening all day but the DJ, giveaways and goodie bags don’t start till 7pm.

Solestruck isn’t the only one getting in on the fun either…
Isaac Hers will be hosting a “Make My Break” sale and party. Get 20% off apparel plus an EXTRA 5% off when you Check-In at their store on Facebook. They’ll be partying from 3-9 pm with drinks starting at 3 pm and a DJ at 6 pm.

The Woodlands and Tanner Goods will be serving up beer from Ninkasi, stayin’ open late, and offering some sale goods.

Dunderdon will have beer and a Sale too!

Moral of the story? Get down there Saturday for fun, goodies, cocktails and shoes!
