What better way to travel than with shoes made up of adventure and love?
We Small Girls do a lot of traveling, and we needed the perfect spring sneakers to handle our quick trips and sassy style. That’s where our friends (and new client!) Portovelo comes in-
After searching the world (all 7 continents) the makers of Portovelo created the perfect travel shoe. Good for your feet and your style. These cute little slippers have more to them than meets the eye though- with their “Miles to Meals, one step at a time” philanthropy program, Portovelo provides 15 meals to hungry children in need with every purchase of shoes.
The Santorini White, Chealsea Red, London Slate and Pacific Blue harken some of the great places one can travel to- but don’t let your feet or imagination stop you there.
We’re excited to have taken these shoes to LA and Miami and soon to Morocco, Vegas, and Vienna. Woo!

Small Girls in Rachel by Rachel Roy at South by South West [say that three times fast]
Festival dressing is difficult enough as it is, but when you’re spending the week working (over playing), when does one have the time to plan the perfect look to transition from behind the scenes to hosting guests at events? Enter Rachel by Rachel Roy, who outfitted us for the festival and saved the day.
Despite the fact that we chose completely different pieces, we somehow managed to coordinate our looks, down to the backpacks. Here are a couple of shots snapped at the Fast Company Grill by our fave, Nicky Digital.
I’ve worn a denim dress at least one of the days at SXSW every year for the past 5 years. It is my top secret festival wear weapon for the following reasons:
1) It’s a dress so you don’t need to think about mixing & matching, you just throw it on your head, add a flower crown and run out the door to eat tacos and rage. 2) Denim is thin enough to breathe if its warm out and thick enough to protect you from the chilly evenings, allowing you to transition seamlessly day to night from panel to party.
I love maps and flowy things, so I was immediately drawn to the Cruisin Top by RRR— you know, to help me navigate SXSW13. I layered the top in a L over my favorite American Apparel skater dress. Belt it with a boy’s button down or keep it loose- it works both ways. The map & the backpack thing kind of channels an adult Dora the Explorer thing. We did it! Yay!
I’ve since worn this top at least once a week since the festival. Absolutely obsessed.
Oh, hello! We know you were counting down the days until the next installment of SGPR’s #FierceWomanFridays. Well here it is, in all its app-happy glory..
Melody McCloskey, CEO of StyleSeat, is a PR chick of sorts; the app /company she founded connects clients with free-agent hairstylists/beauticians across the country, helping people book appointments and stylists promote their services. Since the app’s launch in May 2011, more 75,000 stylists in 10,000 cities processed upwards of $100 million in bookings.
Sarah Paiji and Jinhee Anh Kim co-founded Snapette, an app that let’s users know what clothing stores are in their area and what kind of clothing they have in store. They’ve partnered with megabrands like Uniqlo, Nine West, and Rebecca Minkoff, so you know this app is the real deal. We foresee this app as being particularly useful when we’re itching to do some shopping down at SXSW.
Although incredibly convenient, addicting, and entertaining, by now we all know the perils inherent in online shopping. And no, we don’t just mean how easy it is to spend your rent check on the best pair of shoes ever from the comforts of your bed. Refinery 29 gave us the scoop on, Design Faux Real, a site linked with the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition (IACC), which recently launched in an attempt to expose the harm that both your bank account and wardrobe can face when you surf’n’shop.The site acts as a mock e-commerce platform, selling* clothing and accessories from ultra-popular brands like Juicy Couture, Kate Spade, and Lacoste. Buyer beware (literally) you’ll just have to ignore the warnings of credit card debt, fraud, and inauthenticity tacked on to each item for sale on the site.
*They don’t actually sell the items listed on their site, they’re just being Miley facetious.
Snaps and pats on the back go to the IACC, in conjunction with the Luxury Design Council, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, for using engaging tactics to disseminate their message to the public.
