It all started with a pair of Reva flats by Tory Burch.  As a young woman looking to establish myself professionally, I was always looking for the perfect "go-to" classic black flat to wear to work, and it meant something to me to buy those shoes for myself.  I saw it as an investment in my future, a visual ticket to success. Two months later, the shoes were tattered, torn, ripped, and the sole had completely worn away.  I was astonished to realize that these shoes, which I had invested so much of my (limited) disposable income on, could not hold up to the pace of my life (and let's face it, it wasn't like I was climbing Mount Everest).  If I had known the life-span of these shoes, I don't believe I would have purchased them in the first place.  

This unfortunate experience prompted me to think, "Wouldn't it be great if there was a website where I could visit to read about the quality and durability of these products as proven in the lives of other women like me so I don't have to worry about this with my next purchase?"  So to fill a need in my own life, the idea for was born!  After discussing this idea with other women (friends and strangers!) I realized that I wasn't the only one who realized the need for such a website, and I saw the opportunity to create and provide a platform for women to review and share what they depend on and what has let them down.  Shetrusts provides a place for us to learn from one another, and to insert the conversation about quality and durability back into the fashion dialogue.
