I refuse to admit to being a shoe person. It's not like I'm like Carrie Bradshaw spending $400 on Manolo Blahniks. More likely my money is going towards practicalities like Dansko clogs or Naot boots. I have to walk a hell of a lot after all. I've been smitten with a pair of cherry red patent leather John Fleuvog Mary Janes with four little straps for about a month. So I bought them today after work. I am back in school after all, and it's important to have a new pair of sturdy back to school shoes. With sturdy 2 1/2 inch heels and gummy rubber soles.
