A very long, fun day.

Yesterday, our shoes were featured in two very different–albeit fun–events.

The first was the Women’s University Club‘s Spring Fashion Show, which was held over lunch at their lovely First Hill headquarters. What a beautiful building! I could have happily taken up permanent residence in the glamorous bathroom lounge alone.

The models in the fashion show wore a mix of clothing from both vintage and modern designers, including Lisa Vian Hunter, Luly Yang and Oska. Hourglass Footwear provided shoes for a number of the outfits, and the results were outstanding:


Cotton Club in a mid-heel.


Mid-heels custom created for this gorgeous vintage over-dress by Hourglass artist Rachel J.E. Sprague.


Walk the Line stilettos (isn’t this photo great?)


I think I Love You mid-heels and Double Happiness comforts customized with a gold background.


Princess Bride stilettos.


Gentlemen’s Club mid-heels.


Force Majeure stilettos.

Our evening was spent at the luxurious Escala in downtown Seattle, at the Wines Around the World benefit for The F-factor (which, to borrow their words, “utilizes fashion as a tool to employ creativity, build self-confidence, and nurture the self-esteem of foster children and abandoned youth”).

There was food and wine, a tango performance, and lots of twinkling jewelry and clinking glasses.

We were there to show our support for a really great cause…and also because the models who circled the event with trays of chocolate were wearing Hourglass shoes.
