Well-heeled networking coming soon

BlackheelsI'll confess, networking is not my forte. But an event this Sunday promises to take out all the awkwardness of the standard name-tag-meet-and-greet. Work the room while SHOPPING!

Here's the scoop: The second annual High Power in High Heels bash, "an executive networking event for Tampa Bay businesswomen," runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the Nordstrom store at International Plaza. Think of it as a pink update on the old-school men's golf outing, or the smoke-filled country club bar.

We can thank a few high-powered local chicas for coming up with the concept. I attended last year's debut and can offer rave reviews. Nordstrom personal shoppers told us all about the hot trends for fall. We got to pre-select styles from the Norstrom Anniversary sale, which starts next Friday. (Deal Divas never miss this once-a-year window to pick up the latest brand name looks at a major discount.)

There will be wine and light appetizers. Door prizes include a fab pair of shoes. The registration fee is $25, with proceeds benefiting Dress for Success. If this year is anything like the last, you won't even realize you're networking when you gush with a neighbor over the killer heels that are just to die for.
