Michelle Pettinger Talks Pairing Wine with Shoes

Author: Guest Blogger

VanillaPuddinPairingCome along with me and find out how it is possible to pair Wine with Shoes!

When I first heard Wine Women & Shoes I have to admit to being perplexed. I knew plenty of ladies who loved both of those things but as a combination it surprised me.

So how exactly do you pair wine with shoes?

My current favorite wine is ‘The Velvet Devil’ it’s a cheeky Merlot out of Washington State.

I first encountered it in a restaurant not far from our Walk on Water friends in Lake Mary, who are vendors this year and part of a wonderful group of businesses who provide shopping opportunities for us at the event and donate 20% of their sales to Wine Women & Shoes.

So what pair of shoes might be paired with my favorite ‘The Velvet Devil‘? On reading the label, I am told to avoid a number of activities but there is nothing about avoiding heels, so off we go! Read More …

Lainey Talks This Year’s Wine Women & Shoes Marketplace

Author: Guest Blogger

Lainey Fox Wine Women & Shoes entertainment committee chairHey! I’m Lainey, your Entertainment Committee Chair for Wine Women & Shoes 2016!

My committee and I oversee Wine Women & Shoes’ marketplace, wine pull, Sole Men, wine selection, and more—you know, the good stuff! The committee has worked very hard to make our sixth year the best yet. And although there are plenty of exciting changes coming this year, I’m most excited for our event marketplace.

Serious question: How often do you get to treat yourself to some great shopping and get the satisfaction of knowing your purchases were serving a good cause (other than your closet that is 😉 )?

Well at Wine Women & Shoes, it’s totally acceptable to do a little splurging—not only will you find an amazing array of things to shop, but 20% of the sales from our event marketplace go directly to Second Harvest to help feed our neighbors in Central Florida. Win, win! Read More …

Do You Have Sole?

Author: Guest Blogger

Wine Women & Shoes Sole Man TJHi there! I’m TJ and this year…

I’m a Soul man! Da-na, da-na, da-na, da-na…

Well, we’re spelling things a little different this year. It’s Soooole Man, baby! What’s the difference? I’m glad you asked! This year, Wine Women & Shoes (WW&S) Orlando has decided to take a turn from Shoe Guys and has turned us into Sole Men. The metamorphosis is complete and we’re very excited to be showing off all that we can do. Look out for Sole Men throughout the event. We’ll be there to cater to all the attendees from passing out wine glasses, pouring wine, serving the VIP tables, (maybe making an appearance on stage), and handing out some very special WW&S CORKS to the wearers of our favorite shoes. Before we get to the April, though, you’ve got a chance to meet this year’s Sole Men!

Visit our pages here to see all the gentlemen that you’ll get to meet, as well as help us crown this year’s KING OF SOLE by donating to their page. Remember 100% of the proceeds from the King of Sole competition go DIRECTLY to Second Harvest Food Bank. Make sure to share their pages and tell your friends, especially if you see a familiar face or two! Read More …
