Fancy Footwork

Oh yes, I love to do shoes. I'm not a fetishist but I love to do shoes.” – Karl Lagerfeld

It would be an understatement to say that I love my shoe collection. I truly cherish it. Shoes (along with handbags) are the ultimate purchase because, if well taken care of, they can be treasured forever. Sure, trends come and go, but they almost always make a comeback (1970’s revival of the platform pump ringing any bells?).

When our mothers’ got married, they typically bought a pair of satin, white pumps, most likely at the boutique in which they got their gown. But these days we’re faced with a bevy of choices for our walk down the aisle.

Whether it’s a crystal clad statement shoe, a traditional ivory pump, or something practical that can be worn to any formal event thereafter, the options seem endless.

Shoes can change an entire look, or in Cinderella's case, an entire life :)
