Night Lines: Recessionista Shoe Party

We love a good reason to break in our new Louboutins (which we nabbed on sale, no lie). And what better place than at the Hello Stiletto “Recessionista Shoe Party” with ladies who can truly appreciate a great pair of heels?

The shoe-loving social networking club gathered recently at the Capital Grille in Burlington, where members donned their favorite footwear for a fashion show on the hot pink carpet. Members were asked to show off the best deal they ever got on a pair. Daring designer steals and trendy $20 finds walked the runway, including board member Debbie Mellor’s lace-up Manolos.

See the slide show.

The evening also featured Gwendolyn Beck, a former bond trader and financial planner for Morgan Stanley, and author of the new book, Flirting with Finance, which is a woman’s guide to all matters of money. Beck spoke about managing funds, so that we’ll always be able to spring for Prada and Gucci.

Hello Stiletto’s next big event is February 13 at Vlora, and then there’s the Glow and Behold Winter Ball on March 6, which is a black-tie affair of food, drinks, and dancing at the Ritz Carlton. Proceeds will benefit the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis.

See? We told you the Louboutins went toward a good cause.
