Pink Stripes Feat: Conchetts at Fashion Night Out in San Jose

Ok, crazy good week so far….. On Tuesday I visited the cutest store on Santana Row – Pink Stripes – and they sell anything from hard candy to Louis Vuitton bags to Christian Louboutin shoes. Santana Row just so you know, is the Rodeo drive of the south bay. I shop there regularly and decided to bite the bullet and talk to the owner about my whimsical shoes…Thank God I got her on the phone; We set up a meeting and we clicked!! P.S: on my way to the meeting, my biggest cheerleader, Mama Dearest, gave me the best cheer words ever “You are the shit! Own it!” :)… Anyway, I knew this would be the start to a fun fashionable relationship… By the time our meeting was over, she’d placed an order for my gorgeous hand painted shoes to be featured her store and wanted them delivered in time for fashion night out which is today Thursday… So yeah! I’ve been a lil’ crazy, overdosed on Redbull and googly eyed but then again what’s new in fashion… Lol
Quick recap of the past 48hrs: about two dozen hand painted shoes each with there own personality, my labeled t-shirts, over 100 flyers designed & printed, custom designed lollipop baskets to handout flyers and of course getting my beautiful self ready for one of fashions biggest nites out in the South Bay…

So it’s official, Conchetts can be found at pink stripes in Santana Row… WoooHoooo!!!

Here are the pictures

Conchetts opportunity to design a pair of hand painted TOMS shoes for Terri J. Vaughn (Lovita from The Steve Harvey Show)

So, it’s another slow day at work (people don’t shop in august) as I’m starting to
fall asleep standing up in walks MALINDA WILLIAMS!! …. I almost lost it. I don’t
think she knew I knew who she was as she said, “she’s on the phone”
I’m thinking who’s is this ‘she’ you’re referring to? Then in walks Terri Vaughn (known for her role as Lovita from The Steve Harvey Show). I turned red, full of excitement, as these women were role models to me.

When I was 11 years old Terri spoke at the opera house on 3rd St, San Francisco, she
kept saying she was living proof that ‘…your past does not define you….’ I was thrilled and inspired to meet someone that came from my hometown that was on T.V.
Because of her, I want to be a role model to black young women coming up behind me.

Terri and Malinda (yeh!, we’re on first name basis now, lol) were really chilled. You can
tell they just wanted to shop but they entertained my conversation as they
looked around. Terri was shopping for a huge event ” The 7th Annual Angel Awards Benefit
” so after trying on about 6 dresses nothing worked. But I noticed they
were wearing comfy shoes, so I approached her about my shoes “of course”. I offered to design a custom pair of Conchetts
Toms. I gave her my card and they left…

Of course I ran home followed Terri on Facebook and Twitter and I sent her this

To Terry,
Hi it was a pleasure meeting you, and……. . I’m so excited to design a custom pair of hand painted TOMS shoes for both of you. Check out some samples of my unique designs Conchetts please send me your information, so I know where and when to send your one of kind shoes. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
