Three martinis and a champagne.


Welcome to Work Shoe Blisters! We are 4 global concierges, planner extraordinaries, jet setting shopaholics, Gordon Ramsay wannabes offering up an inside look at what we love (and don’t). Here’s a little about us:

  • Favorite City: Paris/ Copenhagen
  • Favorite US City: tie San Francisco and Ouray, CO
  • Favorite Drink: very dirty Belvedere martini up with three blue cheese stuffed olives
  • Favorite shoes: for onsite at events: my black patent leather Ann Taylor flats with a gold buckle; in life: either my snakeskin peep-toe Stuart Weitzman’s or my vintage brown Fyre collegiate boots
  • Favorite Airport: Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW) although the Copenhagen airport is pretty fantastic
  • Favorite Travel Outfit: jeans, a cute pair of flats, a t-shirt, a wrap cardigan and a pashmina (in case it gets cold)
  • Must-have travel item: cell phone charger and a good book
  • Best Restaurant Experience: I just had a pretty mind altering experience at HerbSaint in NOLA
  • Favorite Coffee Drink: decaf tall skinny vanilla latte
  • Why I like event planning: I get to organize all the teeny, tiny details that most people never ever think about and then watch as everyone enjoys my creation.


  • Favorite US city: New York City
  • Favorite City Worldwide: Prague
  • Widow or Aisle?: Depends on the length of flight, but normally Aisle
  • Favorite Drink: pomegranate basil martini
  • Favorite coffee drink: vanilla latte
  • Favorite airport: PDX
  • Favorite shoes: Eccos
  • I won’t travel without… My hair straighter
  • Favorite travel outfit: Black pants and a wool blazer/jacket (it gets so cold in convention centers)
  • What I love about event planning: Having the opportunity to make details strategic


  • Favorite US city- Tough call! I’d have to go with Boston, Chicago and NY.
  • Most unique experience/observation while traveling – at a nice hotel in Orlando, I asked the Concierge to recommend a ‘non-chain’ restaurant for dinner. Her response: “Well, you could try Olive Garden, Chili’s, or Red Robin.”

  • Must-have travel item – Can’t leave without my iPod
  • Favorite airport – Portland – great shopping and short lines

  • Favorite US City- San Francisco or New York
  • Widow or Aisle? Window, as close to the front as possible
  • Favorite Drink – Champagne
  • Favorite coffee drink – Decaf, soy latte
  • Must-have travel item –Dramamine and a good book
  • Favorite airport – Chicago O’Hare United Terminal (Vosges Haut Chocolat, Garrett’s Popcorn and art exhibits – do you need anything else?).

      Ecco’s are the very best, most comfortable yet still stylish shoes I’ve ever worn. I simply won’t hit a trade show or event without them!
