gold shoe giveaway


To show my gratitude for your support throughout 2013, I have five gifts planned for you over the next five days!  There are no outside sponsors or companies associated with these gifts. They are simply from me, to you.


Guys, this week has been so much fun! I’ve kinda felt like an intentional Santa Claus giving out gifts everyday. It’s also a bit staggering to see all the mentorship applications, and workbook/PV Starter Kit downloads.

In honor of Wineday Friday, I am wrapping up the Week of Giving with a pair of gold flats! I cannot thank you guys enough for all of the comments and emails filled with gold shoe suggestions over the past few months.

After looking at what seemed like hundreds of gold flat options, I finally settled on the original pair from J.Crew factory that I thought would be a half size too small.

I took the plunge and purchased them despite the size and they ended up fitting perfectly!

While I was doing this shoe size dance, Carrie of Dream Green DIY, snagged some 8.5 gold ballet flats at her super special local J.Crew outlet for me, too.


I paid her back for the extra pair of gold shoes, but the 8.5’s are too loose for me.

Which means I now have a pair of gold J.Crew ballet flats for you!

(You’ll notice there is a black line through the J.Crew logo because these puppies are actually regular J.Crew flats sold at the outlet for much less than normal.)

If you want to snag these flats, check out the details below.



A Week of Giving Wrap Up


And a huge thanks to you all for being a part of the 2013 Week of Giving! I have been so blessed by your support over the past year and I hope that the things I shared this week can help you take 2014 to the next level.

And as always, thank you for reading and have a great holiday week/weekend!

    1. Really? I would have thought you would have had a size 9 or something – I always remember how much taller you were than me. : )

      Merry Christmas and New Year! (Do you remember our New Year and Valentine’s Days together way back when?) So fun, Pookie!

      1. Theresa Marie Mullane

        Haha!! I wear an 8.5 in dress shoes and 9 in tennis shoes.
        Yes, I remember out valentines date! I think of you every time I buy a box of Somoa Girl Scout Cookies. Are you coming in or the reunion? I hope so!

        1. Oh man. I think about that box of Somoa GS cookies, too. What a binge. I’m not going to be in MI then, but you’ll have to let me know how it goes!

  7. Megan

    I love these darling little flats, and I just so happen to be a size 8.5 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

    J. Crew flats are the absolute best – especially when they are being given away in my size! 😉 Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Sarah C.

    oh gold shoes! i’d love to win these (and i’m a 8.5) too!

  10. Carrie Waller

    I’m so glad that the flats get to be used for this extra special purpose!! And, of course, that you found your perfect pair throughout the process. Best possible ending to the story!

    P.S. This comment obviously doesn’t count towards the giveaway 😉 Good luck to all the ladies entering!!!

    1. Yes, Carrie, this giveaway could not have happened without your loveliness. Thank you again. : )

      PS – Congrats with all of the success lately, you are rocking it!

  12. Ann Palma

    I’ve never had a pair of J. Crew flats – or gold flats – but I pretty much only wear gold sandals during the summer, so I should!!! Just to happens I’m an 8.5!! Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!

  13. Linda Misiura

    My size too! J.Crew flats are the comfy-est… Your week of giving has been so lovely!

  14. I’m a big fan of J. Crew flats. They’re well made and comfy. And these are my size! Thanks for this giveaway and for being such an inspiration throughout the year Jess! Happy Holidays!

  15. Project Soiree

    I’m loving your week of giving! These J.Crew flats are so fun to dress up or down.

  16. Oh man, if you heard me sing…. lol. Let’s just say I’m best at the writing and speaking part (not to mention my complete lack of rhythm…).

    Anyways, thanks for your compliment and good luck!

  17. Melissa

    Pretty, pretty shoes! And just my size too…

    I’ve worn my Factory ones to death but I love the extra-shininess of this pair. Makes them feel a touch dressier 🙂

    Happy holidays, Jess!

  18. Reagan Cerisano

    Well, this is perfect. I’m in desperate need of a nice pair of new flats. Love your week of giving!

  19. Jennifer Peters

    What a wonderful giveaway! I am actaully a size 8.5, so that’s even better 🙂

  20. Alli

    Thanks for the giveaway! I am size 8.5 so thanks for the great opportunity!

  21. What a fun week of giveaways, Jess! I would love, love, love to take this pair off your hands – I’m an 8.5 and don’t have any gold flats! Have fun reading through the mentorship applications. I look forward to reading about the winner & seeing the results. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I don’t think I’ll be sharing details about the winner for the mentorship (privacy respect, etc). But you never know if it somehow is relevant in the future to topics, etc. : )

      Good luck with both giveaways!

  22. Maria

    These giveaways are so thoughtful- thanks Jess! (fingers crossed over here 🙂

  23. alexandrainto

    I just wanted to add another great big thank you for this lovely week of giveaways.

    I am not entering to win the gold shoes, but wanted to send my gratitude for this giveaway and for all of the giveaways all week.

    I must confess, ever since the gold shoe post, I always look for gold flats when I’m at or near a shoe department/section. It’s happened more than a few times, which is kinda silly that I’m still phantom shopping for your gold flats. “I wonder if Jess would like this pair?,” I think to myself…

    I suspect you spend countless hours thinking about ideas to bring to your readers, whereas your readers also think about you in the “day to day trenches,” as David Foster Wallace might say. Point being, the routine day to day posts are just as meaningful as say the more highlighted pieces.

    As for me? Gold would be a stretch for my footwear options, thus you’ll have to exclude this post from the giveaway… I just wanted to share the some insight into the legacy of the gold flats 🙂

    1. Aw, thank you so much for sharing! It really was fascinating to see all of the gold shoe shopping support! I got a lot of emails and many comment suggestions over the past few months. You’re right, a lot of people really thought about that post when shopping. It was incredibly kind. : )

      Thank you for ‘shopping’ for me and happy holidays!

  25. Lesley Myrick

    Aaah, so cute! And just the right size too. 🙂

  26. Colleen B

    I love these! And I love the Week of Giving, such a great idea.!

  27. jmr224

    Ohhh! These gorgeous gold flats remind me a grown-up’s version of what Angelina Ballerina (the dancing mouse) would wear!

  28. Kimberly

    Love them! Just had a baby 4 months ago and my feet have not gone back to my normal size! 8.5 is perfect! : )

  29. Love them! That’s my size :O) Thanks Jess for an awesome week of giving… actually THANK YOU for your work. Happy Holidays!

  30. Carina Sanchez

    Thank you for thinking of your readers this holiday season. These are just my size!

  31. Hannah

    Beautiful! What a great idea for a giveaway…and luckily 8.5 is exactly my size!

  32. Maggie

    I love the gold flats but have always been a little nervous to try them myself. Since I wear an 8.5, this is a perfect excuse to put more fun into my wardrobe! 🙂

  33. Melody

    They are GORGEOUS… I love gold 🙂 I’m an 8.5 and would love to win the flats.

  34. EmSewCrazy

    Um.. I’d love to win these. They’re gorgeous!
    Merry Christmas to you Jess!

  35. CB

    I’d love some gold flats and wear 8.5. Fun giveaway! Merry Christmas, Jess! 🙂

  36. Melissa Hill

    These flats are lovely. And I’m in search of the perfect pair of flats for my post-pregnancy-no-longer-swollen feet. These would be perfect!

  37. DeeG131

    Thanks for the chance! These flats are beautiful. Do you have the SKU number for these? Even if I don’t win I’m going to keep a lookout for them in stores. Thanks! 🙂

  38. lina

    oh my, these are perfect. it would be really nice to get a gift like this one. money was tight this christmas, & i’m not expecting much under the tree. so, winning these would be wonderful : )

  39. sara moulton

  42. Thank you for recommending! I was going through the One Forty Three site (so cool) but wasn’t able to find them. But thank you for sharing!

  43. Emily Benko

    I would love to get my hands on these babies!! I’ve been looking for a gold pair ever since I shot you an email a while back about the gold flats I found for you. They were out of my size 🙁 Happy New Year xoxo
