    I’m a total shoe junkie so when you combine an amazing selection of sandals, flats and heels with champagne and cupcakes, you can bet I’ll be there! Bus Stop, which is quite possibly one the best shoe stores in the city, will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary on Friday, so be sure to stop by for free drinks and food from 5:30p.m.-8:30p.m. 

    This store carries a unique assortment of shoes from far off places like Europe and South America that you can’t find anywhere else.  British beauty and owner Elena Brennan only carries shoes “that women are going to go nuts for.”

    And since you can’t leave empty handed, mention Style Spy for 10 percent off your entire purchase and receive a free mascara!
