What if you could click your heels, and magically multiply your shoe collection?
Enter my (sole)sister-in-law Sandy Saccullo to make all of your shoe math dreams come true. As Founder and President of OneClique , Sandy offers a stylish and affordable shoe collection that you can mix and match to your heel's content. Thanks to the innovative Clique Latch System, you're able to take your shoe-drobe to exponential limits with a simple click. Watch this video on how it works:
When I first met Sandy, a little over eight years ago, she was barefoot and pregnant. Literally. She opened the door of her apartment in her third trimester maternity clothes, gathered Eric and I into a hug and proceeded to ask us if we would prefer to order in Shun Lee or PJ Clarke's. I liked her instantly.
Although it's an understatement to say that a lot has changed over the course of eight years, one thing has remained constant. I am lucky to have her in my life, not only as a sister-in-law but as friend, mom-spiration, and support force.
Sandy is The. Best. Networker. Like, ever. I always joke with her that if all else fails she should ask people to pay her for the connections she makes. It's such an innate ability for her that it's sort of astounding. I don't think she even considers it "networking". It's just that easy for this girl to befriend others.
It's because of Sandy's "networking" that I landed at Cullman & Kravis, Inc. where I spent five amazing years learning more about interior design than I could have ever hoped. Sandy was also one of the people who convinced me this past winter to just go for it and start Lindsay Saccullo Interiors. If she could start a business, so could I. What did I have to lose? (Don't answer that!)
A few years ago, Sandy told Eric and I she had an idea. "There should be a way to change the style of your shoes, without buying a whole new pair. You should be able to create the styles you want, when you want them." Amen to that sistah! Surely this is a daydream all of us shoe-lovers have had at one point or another. But we haven't actually had the motivation or confidence to make it happen. A busy mom of two, Sandy had been out of the work force for awhile, but was determined to build the brand and bring it to market. And did she ever. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response, the shoes sold out within just a few months of their soft launch.
Needless to say, the past few years of building the business have been a roller coaster for Sandy. I think all small business owners can relate. But when you find success, it's that much more rewarding. The shoes have already been featured in Oprah Magazine, Refinery 29, and People Style Watch (just to name a few!). I can't wait for more inventory to come in soon, so I can get me some more shoe separates and watch OneClique take the shoe world by storm - again.
As if this incredible shoe-vention wasn't enough to basically make your life, when you shop with OneClique you are also changing the girl world. Sandy and her co-founder Stefani (also a fab momtrepreneur!) stand strong behind the premise of the company: all girls are welcome. The brand inspires individuality, works on putting a stop to girl-on-girl bullying, and fosters a destination for girls from all different walks of life - one clique for all. They have plans to further develop this heart and sole of the business through their Sole Sister campaign this spring.
Since Sandy is one of the most stylish moms I know, I was flattered when she asked me to decorate and style her new petit a.p.t.. Stay tuned for the reveal!
In the meantime, join the clique.
