To spread some holiday spirit, local cobbler Ailette Valcarce has launched Get Styled Give Smiles. The partnership with Miami Children’s Hospital lets ladies swap a new unwrapped toy for a 20 percent off discount on the designer’s Aily V shoe collection and any other shoe for that matter at participating boutiques. Valcarce is known for her trendy and uber-comfy Brazilian leather wedges, flats and stilettos. Get Styled Give Smiles runs through December 18. Score the deal at boutiques like M-M Couture, Essence, The Dressing Room, Shoes To You, Savvy Girl and Fifty Rio. Check out ailyv.com.
