Ever since the show "The OC" ended there has been a tiny hole in my heart left by one Miss Summer Roberts. In my world, Summer was the best thing since Lisa Turtle. Funny, quick-witted, fashionable - all the things I look for in a fake TV best friend. As I tried to fill the void left by Summer I discovered that Rachel Bilson, the actress who played Summer, was a pretty good substitute. I was enamored by everything she did from her Q&A column in InStyle Magazine to what she wore walking her dog. I'm not kidding- I really know what she wears to walk her dog- don't judge. Turns out, she's much more than a cute actress- she's kind of a style icon- and she's using her powers for good. Rach is part of the design team that makes up shoemint.com, an online source for on-trend shoes at affordable prices. Recently, Rachel also began playing my *new* TV best friend Zoe Hart on the CW show Hart of Dixie. In a role that's not so far off from Summer (still funny, quick-witted and fashionable) Rachel is also cross promoting her stylish kicks. In this week's episode I spotted Zoe running around the South in shoes from (where else?) shoemint.com. Hey, if they're good enough for Rachel *and* Zoe - they're good enough for me!
