Without proper footwear to identify them, track stars are often assumed to be frightened paranormal experts fleeing unbusted ghosts. Keep ahead of the invisible crowd with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of designer shoes and accessories at The FaSHOEnista in Cornelius.
The FaSHOEnista’s owner, Lisa Moyer, scours the area in search of rare brands that adorn feminine feet in a range of looks, from comfortable and casual styles to high-end stilettos. Step out in a stilted set of Sergio Zelcer heels, amble over urban cobblestones in Lola Cruz flats, or confidently gulp down autumn rains in handcrafted Old Gringo boots. Shoes range in price, starting at $29, with most styles between $50 and $250. Accessories, such as handbags, scarves, clutches, and belts, join their hoof-cloaking brethren in flattering figures and perfecting personal style ($10+). The boutique is neatly nestled inside the Ashley Carol house, a large historic residence brimming with specialty stores peddling original items such as home-décor finds, women's apparel, and firm yet gentle handshakes.
Origin Story: Confessions of a Shoeaholic
Spurred by her own shoe addiction and a desire to escape the finance industry for a job that gave her more time to raise a family, Lisa Moyer founded The FaSHOEnista in the fall of 2010. Lisa loves working alongside her neighbors at Sanary Alba boutique and the eight other specialty shops inside the historic Ashley Carol house.
