About Us

  1. Founder Crisa Mitrou Barriball was born in San Francisco, grew up in Greece and got married in Chicago. With a blend of the laid back style of the West coast, the entrepreneurial edge of the Midwest and the poetic side of her Greek heritage, Crisa combines the feminine romance and edgy fashion in all her designs.
  2. We are more than just an accessories shop. I am a mom of three, juggling both work and mommy time from our home in Chicago. When you call, I can give you advice on which shoe accessories will complement your look. Hey, and if you send a photo of your shoes, I can virtually dress them up for you!
  3. Before I finalize each design I always ask the question “Would Audrey wear this?” Even though she is not with us anymore, Audrey Hepburn’s timelessly chic style and UNICEF humanitarian character continues to inspire and keep me thankful and grounded.
  4. When I see shoes without embellishments I call them "naked".
  5. Absolutely Audrey has collaborated with amazing brands like Steve Madden, Foot Petals, Profooot, Debehnams, Zulily and more! 
  6. And last but not least... Below is one of my wedding photos and my wedding shoes with the sparkling Absolutely Audrey shoe clips named "Maxine". Wink!

Feel free to contact me at: or 815-676-0076 with any questions regarding products, stock lists, wholesale and press information.

I hope you enjoy your stay!

Absolutely AudreyTM is a registered Trademark of Absolutely Audrey LLC.


Founded in 2004 by shoe fanatic Crisa Barriball, Absolutely Audrey is the first dedicated shoe accessories company specializing in restyling women's shoes. Crisa’s love affair with shoes started at an early age while growing up in Greece, and with a small closet and even smaller budget, Crisa fell in love with the idea that one shoe can really have it all. Crisa begun revamping her shoes with vintage shoe clips and after realizing the lack of modern shoe clips in the market, she founded Absolutely Audrey to re-introduce women to the well forgotten accessory of shoe clips.

So what's in the name? 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. By seamlessly switching the shoe accent, you can transform your shoes into a completely new pair in seconds. Absolutely Audrey offers adaptability, but never sacrifices the aesthetic. We use top quality materials, and carefully inspect every pair. Why should we be limited to one option? Absolutely Audrey gives you the freedom to effortlessly adopt your style to the moment. 

One of fashion editors' favorite, Absolutely Audrey won the 2010 Best Accessory Brand Award and has been featured in numerous TV shows, fashion magazines and blogs. Absolutely Audrey shoe accessories are sold at various boutiques in North America, Europe, Australia, and South America. The company has been recognized as the pioneer brand in bringing the shoe clip trend back in style and has been the top pick for collaborations with brands like Steve Madden, Foot Petals, Profoot, Debenhams, My Glass Slipper and more.
