The interview begins!
@jcshoes. Hey there! So glad to chat with you.
@lorisshoes. This is my first twitter interview! I feel like im in the future! Let's get famous!
@jcshoes. I know. Exciting!
@jcshoes. This is our first too. Glad to be doing it with you. :)
@lorisshoes. Fire away!
@jcshoes. So let's do this. Dear JC, (Ty) if you were to look all so fab today, what would be your go to shoe?
@lorisshoes. U might have noticed our current obsesh with platforms! Bigger the Better. We love how women are wearing them with everything!
@lorisshoes. Of course the LITA is a big one!! Shown here on NYC stylist @LalaLopez. http://www.lalanyc.com/2010/07/la-lita.html
@jcshoes. What inspired your On the run lookbook and video?
@lorisshoes. The lookbook is supposed to be disjointed, edgy, and pieced together. We used two photographers. Its a nod to the concept
@lorisshoes. That they are no real trends anymore! Everything is trend. You can work so many looks---if you are confident! We love this!
@lorisshoes. Video based on famous model spies who have become entangled in minor espionage! day to day stuff! http://vimeo.com/13479402
@jcshoes. Your video launched today right. It is awesome.
@jcshoes. Ok, what are the inspirations for designing the hottest looks this millenium?
@lorisshoes. Well, flattery will get you everywhere! we <3 Vintage, London, Brooklyn, Paris, 1970's, club kids, western and of course GOTH.
@lorisshoes. We draw inspiration from the runway, history, the street and from bloggers. We are always looking at what's going on.
@jcshoes. So you mention bloggers. Who are some of your favs? Can you give a shout out?
@lorisshoes. We love so many bloggers: wheredidugetthat, fashionlikeheroin, bleack black, shiny plastic hag, oaknyc.com, a perfect guide,
@lorisshoes. We also love corridor40, knight cat, remodelista, fashionchalet, fashiontoast, pink kitten, and of course we love the JC blog!
@jcshoes. We love the JC blog too. So addicting-like a tech-shoe drug (if there were such a thing).
@lorisshoes. We write the blog daily. Most fans love it. The vibe of the blog is stream of consciousness. If we are thinking it, we blog it
@jcshoes. So what are you thinking now? And are you gonna write about it? haha
@lorisshoes. Today we are thinking about @pooltradeshow. We are also thinking about this: http://dancingalonetopony.tumblr.com/
@jcshoes. So I was gonna ask "What is trending this fall? In your opinion. But earlier you said EVERYTHING?" Is that good or bad?
@lorisshoes. For fall we love WOOD. Fashion LIVES. bobby socks, 1970s, spies, barbarella, distressed leathers, and menswear! HAHAHA!
@jcshoes. LOL to spies.
@lorisshoes. Spy inspired! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natasha_Fatale we love her style!
@jcshoes. So with complete honesty what fall trend do you want to go away?
@lorisshoes. The three buckle fake suede rouched flat boot! Do you know the one? LIKE OVER IT ALREADY! Let it go! Especially in purple!
@lorisshoes. LIKE THIS! DIE TREND DIE! FRUMPY IS OUT! http://www.cheaponlinesale.com/suede-buckle-boot.html
@JCshoes. Yes we do. Enough said :). BTW, lol to the dancing pony videos. hilarious.
@lorisshoes. Obsessed with tumblr pages! Like wasting my life on that!
@jcshoes. Totally understand. My life is wasted away on bloglovinit. You just say to self 'ok I'll read one more'. That turns into 3 hrs.
@jcshoes. Okay, flash back! Best spr/summer trend you hope sticks around in 2011.
@lorisshoes. In no specific order: JC shoes, Zac Efron, Lady Gaga, Hendricks and tonic, facebook and half day fridays. ALL TRENDS WE LOVE
@jcshoes. All awesome especially half day fridays.
@lorisshoes. I'll email Lori about that for you! I am sure Chicago has lots of spots that are great around friday at 3pm!
@jcshoes. Hopefully she is out there tweet listening. Hey Lori.:)
@jcshoes. So, you say 'Hated it' to what Spring/Summer 2010 look?
@lorisshoes. Summer trend I am over? "shoes that make you fit" Oh America, really? That's all Ill say! Buy the JC TICK it weighs like 4 lbs!
@jcshoes. The tick is heavy but is a show stopper. And in my personal wardrobe. :)
@jcshoes. Okay a couple of more questions before we wrap up, are you ready?
@lorisshoes. Hit me with your best shot!
@jcshoes. Who is a JC girl? Is she naturally born or trained in the JC way?
@lorisshoes. A JC girl is a born show stopper! We just cover it in studs for her! Honestly, we have the most loyal and amazing fans.
@lorisshoes. I mean check out all the new JC girls we just posted! http://www.jeffreycampbellshoes.com/girls/ we are lucky to have them!
@jcshoes. Was Lori's Shoes one of the first retailers to carry your haute shoes?
@lorisshoes. You guys have been with us for a long time. Continually growing. This is the JC Ten year anniversary.
@jcshoes. Exciting. Any big plans? #jcshoes10yr
@lorisshoes. We are just wanting to take it up a notch during the next ten! MORE AMAZING SHOES!
@lorisshoes. http://blog.nickienoel.com/?p=691 so many denmark fans--Thanks for the vid by the way!
@jcshoes. Okay last question before we go to the trivia questions for free shoes.
@jcshoes. Let's get personal. What is on your music playlist today? and who inspires you?
@lorisshoes. National, Built to Spill, Nivana, Lady Gaga, Willie Nelson, Sharon Jones, the Gossip, Le Tigre, ELO, all on play now in office!
@lorisshoes. Inspiration is all around! My google reader is full of it! my asistant turned me onto this blog! http://www.shinyplastichag.com/
@lorisshoes. I cannot believe I just had my first twitter interview! I feel like I was on the View, or better Ellen. THANKS LORIS!
@jcshoes. No thank you for your time. BTW, what are we giving away to the 2 lucky ladies before I start the trivia?
@jcshoes. Alright I think those who stuck it out with us are ready for free shoes. What are you giving away to 2 lucky ladies?
@lorisshoes. Sweet! Keep me posted on Free shoe winners! Thanks for your support and thank you for following @JCshoes
@lorisshoes. 2 winners! rewarded with a pair of JC each. Let me know the winners emails! Ill see what we got around here! LOVE SHOES!
The interview concludes with an announcement to Jeffrey Campbell shoe lovers:
Lori's: Okay ladies. It's trivia time. Answer these 3 questions in one DM to @lorisshoes. Winners announced tomorrow. Good luck! #jcshoesgiveaway
Well, the contestants came rolling in with their answers, so we couldn't wait and announced our winners within minutes:
Lori's: The 1st two ladies to answer all three correctly are @breakfast@Saks and @style_obsession. Congrats.
Ooops, but as things sometimes happen when you press the bar to new adventures and pioneering techniques; we had some issues with the ladies getting their answers to us (Twitter is still a force to be reckoned with), so felt compelled to do the following:
Lori's: And because we are generous and sorry for the DM issue we picked a third winner-up @kristenjoerger. Congrats all!
