• Tell Your Friends

First, let me start you off with two quotes:

  • “Men I may not know, but shoes, shoes I know.” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
  • “The best way to a woman’s heart is through her sole.” – Anonymous

So true, so true. I love shoes in every style, shape and color. (My desktop background is even an image of vintage shoes from Designlovefest.) And each week or two when I add a new pair to my tiny closet, I imagine I’ll one day have my dream Carrie Bradshaw closet to display each and every one. With the DIY trend spreading into the fashion world, I may need that extra-large closet sooner than I thought.
