fancy footwork



Ok: it's no secret I love shoes. I also LOVE to dance, although sadly it is something I don't do nearly enough of these days (maybe I should start going "clubbin'"? Do people still do that??) So when Elizabeth rang me up a few weeks ago, offering me a rad pair of Aldo shoes in exchange for shakin' it on camera one morning with several amazing young ladies, it was kind of a no-brainer. It was a bit on the early side for a dance party (many a grande americano had to be wrangled from hand before we rolled...) but it was really great to finally meet so many faces theretofore familiar only as an extension of my laptop.

But what does it all meeean, Basil? Long story short, ALDO is hosting a pretty rad contest right now, involving--you guessed it--shoes, dancing, AND no less than $2500 in prize money. Think of the video above as a kind of jumping off point for you and your killer moves. I mean, come on, you can do better than us right???

P.S. There MAY be a video solely featuring my physical stylings floating around out there...but to see it, you'd have to follow this link. I can say no more.

ah I love how cool you look, I'm sure I would feel like an absolute imbecile and have zero grace but you look so awesome! I think it's very possibly a anglo vs stateside thing you guys just go for it with confidence whereas we fanny about and make self deprecating comments.

o. m. g. siri this is great! i am going to enter for sure. getting paid a pair of shoes for that is like the best thing ever.

Aw shucks guys! It definitely helped that I had a lot of friendly faces cheering me on. And the fact that we all had to make asses of ourselves together (I swear they filmed a group clip as well, guess it didn't make the cut heheh!)

Originally they had us saying the names of our blogs and introducing ourselves and I was kind of freaked out about subjecting you guys to my dumb voice (I know I know, but who DOES like how their voice sounds when recorded? Huh?)

Also, you all should totally enter! I mean, what have you got to lose? Dignity? Pshaw!! I'd probably lose a lot more than that for $2500 (did I just type that out loud?? Oooooops.)
