    Sizing, where to buy online, and more | a Celine Shoes review

    There’s always the thing that got away. The fleeting crush, the perfect meal your favourite restaurant took off their menu, or, even worse, the shoe that got away. For me, the shoes were Chanel Cruise 2018/19 Silver Mary Janes. For whatever reason (read: I was broke), I didn’t get them. From then on, a new […]

    Are they the best luxury heels? | A Jimmy Choo Romy Review

    For me, it means something to know who or what inspired a piece I plan to wear… Manolo Blahnik BBs were named after Brigitte Bardot — I dig her French flare and in turn can adopt un peu de son attitude in my outfits. … but who are Jimmy Choo Romy heels named after? This […]

  • Reformation Shoes Size & Quality Review: I got a pair!

    Reformation Shoes Size & Quality Review: I got a pair!

    Gucci Princetown loafers have been on my lust list (totally different from a “wish list”) forever now. Every few months, I’d go to the Gucci store to try them on… and every time their bulkiness made me look super, uhhh, squat. Basically, like most people, what drew me in was my desire for a closed-toe […]

    Castañer Espadrilles Review: A Perfect Summer Shoe ft. Sizing & Outfits+
