It’s All About the Shoes

Most people think that when they have a special event coming up that they need a new outfit, and then look for shoes. That is not always the case with me. When you like shoes like I do, you look for shoes and then then something to go with them. Another great idea is to buy a simple plain colored dress, and then add the accessories such as this "Coast" printed peep-toe slingback by Bettye Muller (A SimplySoles Exclusive). Add some cool jewelry, and you have a great look. P.S. Today is the … [Read more...]
