#InHerShoes / 2022
Ok yes, our shoes are real cute, but what's even more cute and cool and stylish and inspiring are all the badass people in our shoes. So this year, we decided to pass the mic to some longtime supporters and CS connoisseurs, and asked them to help bring our shoes to life. The challenge? Style one shoe three different ways and tell us a little bit about yourself while doing it. The result? As expected, incredible.
Keep scrolling to see what Hadley (@hbrooksjoiner on IG) gets up to in our Acid Marlos.
Who are you and what are you about?
I'm a marketing student living in Nova Scotia, Canada. I try to focus on the little things in life that bring myself and others joy. I have lots of plants that both love and hate me, and I think hot chocolate is the top tier of hot drinks.
Where are you from & where do you live now?
I am from the GTA in Ontario but, I now live in Kjipuktuk/Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada!
How did you find out about Charlotte Stone?
A beautiful, beautiful post on Instagram.
How do your feet measure up in our shoes?
I have an average foot width, and a normal arch. On average, I wear a size 8.5 shoe and I have the Marlo's in a size 9. When I have the Marlo's on, I have maybe just under half and inch between my heel and the end of the shoe. They are very comfortable to wear!
Describe your style in three words.
Joyful, functional, evolving.
On an average day, you’ll find me in:
In the winter you'll find me in jeans and a colourful sweater; in the summer you'll find me in a dress!
When I’m not working, you’ll find me:
Most likely I'll be in my apartment with my partner, watching tv/movies while working on whatever craft I have on the go.
What are you passionate about?
Being happy. Being kind. Being thoughtful. Being curious.
Who or what inspires or influences your style?
Everyone and everything. People walking down the street, fashion Instagrammers, my parents, celebrities, my friends, designers, etc.
Do you have a style icon? Why are they your style icon?
I tried to think of a specific person, but I couldn't! In general, it would be people who wear whatever they want to and the confidence they exude.
What are you watching or reading or hobbying right now?
Watching: I'm re-watching all of Bob's Burgers.
Reading: I've been making my way through a stack of romance novels.
Hobbying: I just started making polymer clay earrings and I'm obsessed.
What three things could you not live without?
My parents, sweet treats, and my ADHD medication.
What article of clothing are you living in right now?
Sweatshorts. I got my first pair at the start of the pandemic and they've been lounge-changing!
What “traditional” styling rule do you love to break?
Honestly, any of them.
The rules are made up and they shouldn't matter if you feel confident in a look.
What is one weird fashion trend from your youth that you kind of wish came back?
Everything from my youth has already made a comeback, haha!
What is one thing about yourself people might be surprised to find out?
I know American Sign Language (ASL)! It's a beautiful language. I urge anyone interested in learning the sign language in their area (there are hundreds around the world!) to do it, and to learn directly from the Deaf community!
