Fashion: Fresh Kicks

You never know a woman until you walk a mile in her Manolo Blahniks, right?

Besides confidence and a smile, a pair of shoes is a woman’s best accessory. They have the power to manipulate an entire outfit: a sundress can be made casual with a pair of flats, or can be dressed up with a pair of wedges. You can pair some boyfriend jeans with stilettos for a trendy ensemble or throw on Converses for a laid-back vibe. A variety of footwear leads to an endless amount of outfit possibilities, and like the saying goes, good shoes take you good places.
