Founded in 2004 by shoe fanatic Crisa Barriball,
Absolutely Audrey is the first dedicated shoe accessories company specializing in restyling women’s footwear.
Crisa’s love affair with shoes started at an early age while
growing up in Greece. With a small closet overflowing with shoes, and budget
that couldn’t satisfy her love affair with footwear, Crisa fell in love
with the idea of restyling her shoes with vintage shoe clips. As she quickly realized the lack of new
and modern shoe clips in the market, she founded Absolutely Audrey to
re-introduce women to the well-forgotten accessory of shoe clips. Inspired by
Audrey Hepburn’s timelessly chic style, Absolutely Audrey blends
versatility, femininity, and originality while maintaining quality and
functionality in all of its designs. We are constantly designing new styles,
from elaborate pearl and rhinestones designs to rich fabric and mixed metals, styles
sure to compliment your look from casual to evening and bridal. Each shoe clip
features a secure metal clasp that holds the accessory in place without
damaging shoes or hurting feet.
Shoe clips are not only for shoes. They can also adorn clothes, hats, handbags,
skinny belts, lapels, headbands and scarves.
