Giveaway :: D’Carlo Design Shoes

Thursday, May 31, 2012

{please visit D’Carlo Design Shoes here}

Can you believe our month-long tribute to ‘Adorn’ has come to an end? We have done our best this month to introduce you to products that truly enhance your lives, from skin to home and from top to bottom. Although, I suppose we hadn’t quite gotten to the bottom yet, had we? It would horribly remiss of us to not help you properly adorn your beautiful feet this season, don’t you think? As our grand finale, we have found something simply luxurious, beautiful and functional: handmade shoes. If you are anything like me, you equate the idea of a shoe handmade to fit your foot as elusive as flying first class. As in, you know that people do such things but you never thought you would be fortunate enough to experience it yourself.

Carlos Bajo has taken an art form and elevated it to pure beauty and grace with D’Carlo Design Shoes. Each of his shoes are handcrafted to your exact specifications and his gorgeous designs are the absolute definition of form meeting function. I fell in love with these sandals the moment I saw them and saw myself celebrating the change of seasons with long, flowing skirts and colorfully painted toes and a pair of stunning leather sandals made just for me. We want you to adorn yourself with beauty and what better way than by honoring the feet that carry you around. (There are also men’s versions so start shopping for the men in your life as well!) Thank you for sharing this month with us and may you always walk as though your shoes were made just for you.

D’Carlo Design Shoes is giving away one pair of the Handmade Leather Sandals pictured above to one lucky winner! To enter, please answer the following question by Thursday, June 7th. Comments now closed…good luck!
What are your favorite pair of shoes and what do they say about you?

    These are gorgeous. Deeply disappointed they don’t even come in 11s. My favorite pair of shoes are my Ssekos, which I discovered thanks to The Brightside Project, did not win, but purchased anyway…

    my favorite pair of shoes is now old and stinky! they are a soft pair of ballet type flats. very simple. I’ve never found another pair like them

    supple black ? leather with a wide elastic band across the top. they are much softer and more comfy than a professional dance shoe.

    my tall brown boots–it took me 3+ years too find a style I liked, and I plan on keeping them for a looooong time. what they say about me: good things are worth the wait

    I feel lost in life without the low-rise chuck taylor. A staple since middle school and world travel companion, converse all stars have been a true sole mate. I wish they were still made in the u.s.!

    I think the constant presence of this shoe in my life is an analogy for my loyalty to the people and things that I love.

    I just found a pair of leather ballet flats at a flea market that were scuffed and needed some love. I brought them home and oiled them up like a leather saddle and now they have this gorgeous antiqued patina. Still lots of wear left in them!

    I think this says that I like to nurture things and that, well, I like the look of aged leather!

    Lauren says:

    My red leather peep-toe flats are hands-down my favorites. I probably wear them at least four times a week when the weather gets warm so they’re showing some wear, but that just makes me love them all the more.
    My grandmother used to say, “those shoes don’t owe you a thing” when my mom wore out a pair of shoes. I like to say the same thing about my shoes, so I wear them until they practically fall off my feet. As such, my flats reveal that I am fiercely loyal and I see value in things beyond their new, shiny state. Oh yeah, and I never wear heels since I’m 5’9 🙂

    Beverly says:

    My favorite shoes are my Birkenstock sandals! I’ve had them for years and fit my feet perfectly. I wear them all the time during warmer temperatures. They’re the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever purchased, and they will last me a long time. My Birks show that I favor simplicity and comfort, and they easily help carry me through a busy day of running around. Try walking a mile in my shoes, it’ll make you a believer in Birks too!

    Jessica says:

    Slip-on ballet flats. They say I’m lazy (no laces to tie) but stylish, and that I adore audrey hepburn (especially when paired with black capris).

    Sarah says:

    my favorite shoes are my industrial boots. they’re perfect to wear both with jeans or dresses, and that versatility is exactly what I love about them. I think they say that I value both comfort and style. of course, now that it’s summer, I’m all about sandals, and these are particularly beautiful.

    Love my Algeria black patent leather crisscross sandals : )   What do they say? Apparently a lot since I am always stopped and asked – where did you get your sandals –

    Tequila B says:

    I don’t have these shoes anymore but the best pair of shoes I’ve ever bought were Tevas, they are the most comfortable sandals ever, like walking on clouds. While in the military, you can end up walking for a very long time, so when i retire my boots i love to hike around in Tevas.

    Shannon Senne says:

    I guess you could say my favorite pair of shoes are my figure skates.  I can’t imagine my life without skating!

    Flip-Flops! I’m a true Florida girl when it comes to my kicks, and I couldn’t live for about half the year down here without my flip flops. 🙂

    my boots – any pair: black, brown, light brown…yes i have too many. BUT they say i’m an active mom of 3 kiddos, who wants to stay comfy on the go, but stylish too…and then wear those boots, but change the outfit, to go out on the town at night with my husband. then those boots make me think, “what kids? oh those three? those are someone else’s kids i’ve been watching all day.”  a woman’s boots say alot. 🙂

    I have never owned a pair of ‘designer’ shoes, but my current go-to flats (in India, heels are useless on the dusty, bumpy roads) are hand-made traditional slippers called ‘kolhapuris’. These are crafted in a time-tested way, but now with a twist. Instead of the traditional brown leather on the straps, mine are silver. You can even get them in a funky gold and these look great with jeans or a little dress. And so inexpensive too! Because they are hand-made they have their own little quirks. Put them on your to-buy list if you’re coming to India!

    Jenni says:

    My favorite pair of shoes are these little wine colored flats with fabric roses on the toes. I found them when I was planning my wedding, and they matched the bridesmaid dresses perfectly! I had high heels for my wedding, and changed into them for the reception.
    I love wearing them to add an unexpected splash of color to an outfit and always get compliments on them 🙂

    Jac says:

    As a shoe fanatic it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I will say the pair that always brings a smile to my face when I put them on are my leopard print calf hair platform wedge sandals. They say I’m a sun loving rock n’ roll chick who wishes she was taller, and while I may seem tame I have the sole 😉 of a jungle cat.

    Marie says:

    LL Bean Moccasins—comfy, comfy. But I do like a nice pair of not too high heels.

    Emma says:

    My barn boots – they will tell you that I love horses, spend a significant time of the day on my feet, don’t mind walking through mud, grass, dirt and muck, and have suffered a black toe more than once. They will also tell you that I love the color brown paired with lovely brights (the laces are shockingly colorful for a pair of barn shoes!).

    katherine w says:

    Well, quite honestly my favorite pair to wear is… no shoes at all. I chalk it up to my Montgomery, AL roots where as kids, we didn’t have to wear shoes to school or church til 5th grade. But maybe it can also speak to my easygoing, laid back personality and style. I’m one for a stroll in the soft grass (ideal for barefootness) or a conversation curled up on the couch.

    My boat shoes! They are classic, comfortable, and easy to slip when I am in a hurry. I wear them all of the time!

    I currently love my pair of tan moccasins that I bought for only 50 cents!!! They remind me that I don’t have to splurge to get what I want.. I can be frugal and still be fashionable :]

    Erin says:

    I just moved to Portland and the shoes I’m enjoying the most are my Jessica Swift rain boots! They’re so much fun and actually make me look forward to a rainy day!

    My favorite one is a Minnetonka ankle boot. Fashionable, comfort but protective and a bit crazy

    MC Chau says:

    My favorite pair of shoes is a pair of black Nine West pumps I bought 8 years ago for my first interview. They are simple, classy and stylish which fits my personality.

    Rosy says:

    Three years ago I was unemployed and had very few money on my bank account. I had to pay bills and food and could not afford new clothes or shoes or cinemas… I was always in a bad mood. One day I was walking down the street thinking that my life was not worth living, I was going mad and I had depression and then I saw a pair of red flat ballerina on sale (just 10 dollars more or less) and decided to buy them as a sort of present for myself. They were so comfy! Some days later I found a work and my life changed. Now those shoes are old but I don’t want to throw them away and sometimes wear them as they remind me that I always deserve something good in my life.

    My favorite shoes are my simple flip-flops. They say, ” here is a woman who is not afraid to get her feet wet.”

    Kellie says:

    I have to choose just 1? Probably my ‘barefoot’ inspired tennies. I can workout, run errands, be any kind of active in them and I feel like I’m wearing socks. My husband bought them for me for my birthday and had to hunt for my favorite colors too…red and gray.

    kim g says:

    Shoes are “my thing” Those close to me can tell my mood by looking at my feet….carefree happy..sandals. having to go to a meeting..heels….running after one of my kids, or running out the door to the store..I will forever go to my old “go to’s”.  I have owned them since the 8th grade… hehe…They are an old vintage clog that Candies made. They have a wooden wedge and the leather top has blue flowers.

    Lindsay says:

    My favourite shoes are my leather boots – they’re stunning and simple and handmade in Canada. My boyfriend shelled out for them for my birthday and I love the way they’ve moulded to my feet and how I can walk for miles in them.

    Angela says:

    My favorite shoes are flip flops. I live in the upper midwest so the first day in spring that I can wear my flippies is a good one! Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful sandals.
