J'adore les chaussures!

August 10, 2013 Photo & mini-French lesson 
of the day: "J'adore les chaussures"

Every August, just in time for Back-to-School shopping, Picardy Shoe Parlour holds its annual "Blowout Sale." All shoes are discounted 30-70%! What I love best about this boutique is that it carries a few small sizes that are often still in stock during the big sale. Last year, I found adorable Kate Spade slingbacks. This year, I chose these on-trend suede, pointy-toed flats by Pour la Victoire. I love pointy-toed flats for days when I want to dress up, but plan on being on my feet a lot. This pair's mesh detail reveals ample toe cleavage (ooh là là)! They feel very French, and in case you want to channel your inner Parisienne, the shoes come with a handy Parisian glossary! All of the flirty French adjectives are in the feminine form of course (albeit sans appropriate accent marks :-/). C'est chouette, n'est-ce pas!
