New Brand Spotlight: Yosi Samra

Yosi Samra, foldable flats, ballet flats, flip flops, fashionable flats, Yosi Samra footwear, new brand spotlight

Yosi Samra was the start of something new, the fashionable yet comfortable foldable flat. Women concerned with their appearance are usually familiar with the lack of comfort in stylish footwear. Yosi Samra felt the need to give the industry what it needed by designing a beautiful collection of classic ballet flats, flip-flops, T-strap ballet flats, classic loafers, crossover ballet flats, and handbags.

Yosi Samra’s shoes not only incorporate comfort, but also stunning flair. Coming from the mind of someone born into the footwear design business, it’s no shock that Yosi Samra creates eccentric footwear designs for women and kids that even celebrities adore. Accentuating patterns and textures unfamiliar to the usual flat, Yosi Samra is most definitely for the extraordinary woman.

The Osprey & Big Agnes Campout

Springtime in the Las Vegas Valley is a short but very enjoyable time of the year for camping. Around here, we take great advantage of the great weather with camping, hiking or any other excuse we can find to get outdoors in our local parks like Valley of Fire and Red Rock Conservation Area.

Last week, a handful of outdoor enthusiasts were invited by Osprey and Big Agnes to attend the Annual Retail Community Campout. Employees of Zappos.com, REI and Desert Rock Sports got together to hang out, talk shop, test out some new gear by Big Agnes and Osprey and most importantly, enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery.  This year, the event was held at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area, located about 25 miles west of the Zappos HQ.  
 
If you grew up camping with department store camping gear like myself and have been out of the game for a while, you will be blown away by the quality, craftsmanship and ease of setup/teardown that is the epitome of Big Agnes gear. Osprey, purveyors of high quality packs and travel gear, celebrates their 40 year anniversary and was one of the first to introduce breathable mesh in their line of packs over 35 years ago.
 
On behalf of the outdoor enthusiasts at Zappos HQ, we would like to thank Steve and Mitch from Osprey and Big Agnes, as well as everyone else who attended. While there is no substitute for world-class outdoor equipment, it’s really about the people you camp with that make it a memorable experience.
 
Here’s a highlight reel of last year’s event at Valley of Fire, a mere 51 miles from Downtown Las Vegas.

 
On a Side note, in the summer Months we enjoy Mt. Charleston for hiking and camping, which is a 45-minute drive from the office! This just goes to prove that Las Vegas is WAY more than just The Strip!

New Brand Spotlight: Soludos

During the hot New York summer of 2010, Nick Brown found himself searching for the traditional jute soled espadrilles he had worn as a kid on holidays along the Spanish coast.

Stylish enough for evenings out, comfortable in the sweltering heat, and perfect for heading to the beach, he knew they would be the perfect summer shoes.

With nothing similar on the market, Nick decided to transport a dose of Mediterranean sunshine to the U.S.A., and Soludos™ was born. The name is taken from the Spanish "salud," meaning cheers, and "sol," which equates to sun, together forming "cheers to the sun!"

Fresh Picks: Sheer Thing

More often than not, we find the sexiest pieces in our wardrobes are those that leave a little something to the imagination. Take sheer panels for instance. Strategically placed sheer peekaboo panels or all-out sheer fabrication with a subtle baselayer worn underneath just makes for a more dynamic outfit choice.

Check out a few of our sheer favorites below:

I bet right now you are doing one of two things… a) salivating and reminiscing about your favorite sweet treat or b) wondering where in the world I am going with this blog post. Well, just like every homemade recipe, we all have our own signature ingredients that brought us to where we are today.  The recipe I’d love to share with you is my very own journey here at the Zappos Family. 

- Mix together 1/4 cup “WOW”, 1 Tablespoon of Laughter and 2 Teaspoons of Inspiration in a large mixing bowl

I’ll never forget the day that I walked into my manager’s office and spotted a book entitled “Delivering Happiness."  I had no idea what the book was about but I remember thinking, "who wouldn’t want to deliver happiness?" and, being the book nerd that I am, I asked to borrow it from my boss.  After reading about these things called “Core Values," laughing at Tony’s first entrepreneurial adventure in the worm farm industry and finding out that Zappos was located in my hometown of Las Vegas, I had to learn more!  I was wowed by this company and wanted to be a part of it! I took a chance and applied and it seemed like just yesterday that I told my boss of eight years, after reading the book that he let me borrow, that I was leaving to join Zappos.  Let’s just say he hasn’t let me borrow a book since. ;)

- Add in 1 cup of “team and family spirit”

Here I am now… a part of the Zappos Family and when we say family, we really are. My favorite core value is #7 (Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit) and this is something that I am surrounded by every day of the week that ends in Y. My team challenges me but at the same time helps me. They encourage me to work hard and play hard. We have so much fun together here in Recruiting. Whether we are volunteering together on a Karma Adventure, winning the big bucks at Bingo or listening to our favorite jams while we work, we are always lifting our family spirit.

- Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees and then sprinkle on a dash of “Passion”

Passion is what led me here and passion is what keeps me here. If you can’t tell, I am a little passionate about the Zappos culture and being able to share this with our candidates on a daily basis is just a beautiful thing. My day consists of meeting new faces, even if it is just an e-meet (yes I said e-meet), sharing our company culture and welcoming new family members to the most passionate, hard-working, fun group of people I have ever been around. Let’s just say I love my job!

I am honored to be this week’s #InsideZappos Social VIP and being able to tweet with all of you through our careers handle @InsideZappos. As the Finance recruiter here, I am also happy to have two of our amazing Financial Analysts (Nick Bortolotti and David Forbes) joining us this week as well, tweeting from the @ZapposFPA account. Be sure to follow me @mikelldonttweet. (Don't worry… I really do tweet!)

Inspired By: Hot Ticket

If you didn’t quite make it to Indio these past couple of weekends, no worries, festival season is still in full effect. Not only is the season of music fests heating up, so is the weather! That’s right, time to put those cutoff shorts on heavy rotation!

Today’s street style inspiration is a lovely example of how to infuse some girly style while still looking (and staying) effortlessly cool well into the heat of summer.
