What caught my eye: First off, these are the kind of shoes you wear to work ladies!
Why don’t more women have a pair of heels like this stowed away under their desks? The trend of shape-ups during the downtown Roanoke lunch hour needs to go. Most people who work downtown don’t have that far to walk by city standards — a city block in New York or Charlotte are twice the distance of our blocks in downtown Roanoke. I promise your feet won’t hate you for the several hundred yards you may hoof.
If you must swap out your kicks for lunch, get some ballet flats. Moving on.
Military-style parka’s like Ariel’s are classic, designers have been copying this garment for years. The best part, her coat isn’t from a high-end department store, she got it from the GAP. You don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot.
