May is National Women’s Health Month. In honor of the occasion, we’ve created three exclusive shoe designs for the Hope Heart Institute. These beauties can be painted on any heel height (flats, mid-heels, stilettos, platforms, clogs, or your own shoes), and are customizable–just let us know what name or initial you’d like on your pair!

Check them out!


“Under My Skin” platforms



“Heartbreaker” platforms



“Fade Into You” platforms


Just to underscore the fact that we can paint any of these designs on any heel height, here’s how the “Under Your Skin” design looks on flats:


So cute!


In related news: this past week, we’ve had the pleasure of attending two kick-off Hope Heart events. The first was a jewelry try-on happy hour at Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler in Bellevue…with shoes. And champagne. And appetizers. And a super cute little puppy.





Cheese pairs well with shoes and jewelry, as it happens.



Me modeling 1.2 million dollars worth of jewelry…and some gorgeous shoes.



Sorry, little doggie–I don’t remember your name! You sure were cute, though.


Our second event was High Tea at the the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. We were there to showcase our Hope Heart designs, but we also took part in the tea, which was lovely:


Why yes, those ARE swan-shaped cream puffs on the top plate.




Needless to say, it’s been a great week. We’re really looking forward to celebrating National Women’s Health Month with Hope Heart in May–we’re even planning a big party at Hourglass headquarters near the end of the month…stay tuned!
