Lexi, Casey, Simone and Nina were all there for the first Moda Coeur Shoetique “pop up” on April 30 at the Irma Freeman Center for Imagination.
However, those aforementioned names are not some of the ladies in attendance they are the names of some of the shoes that were on display for an afternoon of shopping and networking hosted by Lakisha Pattin.
Reportedly “pop ups” are becoming just as popular as fashion trucks and can show up anywhere.
Potential shoppers will get a notice well in advance of the sale date and then they show up to see what might suit their fancy or fit their foot.
Pattin says she has a passion for shoes and fashion and plans to have several more pop ups before venturing into a brick and mortar store.
A recent survey shows the average woman will buy 469 pairs of shoes in her lifetime with an overall price tag of about $25,000—or $53 per pair.
The average woman has about 19 pairs of shoes—three pairs with heels, six pairs of flip-flops, sandals, ballet pumps or wedges, three pairs of boots and four pairs of sexy shoes for nights out.
They also have two pairs of work shoes and another two or so that might not fit any category.
