Footwear fashion ‘footnote’ to live by:

quote, cinderella, proof pr of shoes can change your mind, use, il_fullxfull

Shoes are my fashion passion.

They can anchor the look suggested by the garments worn.

They can transform the feel / intent of a dress ensemble.

They can define / enhance the impact of a style statement.

Solidify a look with a pair of signature accessories:  shoes!
