Oscar Fashion and New Shoes

 Inspired by the Oscars:
These shoes are size 8/9 and will be raffled off for charity.  Please read the post below for details!

Last year, I had created a pair of shoes inspired by fashion at the Oscars.  {You can read that post here.}  This year, I had a few customers ask if we would carry on the tradition, which I thought was a great idea!  So, I polled several of you on facebook, and chose one of your favorite Oscar dresses as an inspiration for a style of shoes.  The name I heard most frequently was the lovely Emma Stone.  {No, I have not seen the Help yet, but I have heard it's amazing!}  Who wouldn't be drawn to that shade of carmine red/pink and over-sized bow!

In creating the shoes, I used the same color of course, and mimicked the draping, gathering at the neck, and opulent asymmetrical bow in a pint-sized shoe rendition:

The shoes have a T-strap, but it is entirely covered by the half-bow.  You can see the detail a bit better in this photo:

The shoes look really cute when worn.  The bow is pretty full and stands high on the foot, but the solid color keeps the shoes from being too over-done:

Here is Emma's dress and the shoes side by side again:

These shoes are size 8/9. They are soft-soled, one-of-a-kind, and were handmade in our studio. The Emma shoes, along with the gold peep toes in size 12 below {inspired by a very loose interpretation of Stacey Keibler's dress} will be raffled off for charity.

Each $5 donation is one entry in the raffle. We will collect donations from now through Thursday, March 8 at at 11:59 PM CST. At the end of that time period, I will select:

one person to win
the Emma Stone shoes 

one person
to win the gold peep toes

5 additional winners will receive 
a pair of Charlotte Tweed Peep toes in the size of choice {4-13.} 

 Each $5 donation is an entry; you can enter as many times as you wish. Donations will be given to Giving Children Hope. To learn more about them or to make a direct donation, click HERE. Please note that the shoes above are not available for a retail value/cash. For any additional questions, please email

We are no longer accepting donations.  To donate directly to Giving Children Hope, click here.  We will announce the winners on Monday,  March 12.

Thank you to everyone who makes a donation!  100% of this money will go to Giving Children Hope who is currently providing disaster relief for Midwest and Southern regions of the United States struck by the recent tornadoes.  Cost of the shoes, shipping, etc are absorbed by Joyfolie.  We consider opportunities like this an enormous blessing!  Again, thank you to everyone who makes a donation!
