Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!

Give-a-girl-the-right-shoes-and-she-can-conquer-the-worldAre you a shoe offender? Do you have that pair of ‘faithful’ shoes that you wear day in, day out… probably a black pair… they’ve probably been re-heeled a few times, and they’ve probably seen better days. But they’ve done you proud and it’s oh so hard to give them up.

Lurking in the back of your wardrobe though,  like a piece of buried treasure, you have an amazing pair, worn just once to a wedding, preserved in their box. It’s time to ditch the boring, faithful shoes for a few days and dig out your shoe candy

Before you think there is no way I could wear them to work……think ‘what would Carrie do’, put on the shoe angels and rock it!



At Ruby Slippers Styling, we’ve found some amazingly special shoes (for EVERY budget), so if you don’t own that supercalifragilisticexpialidocious pair, show Monday-itus who’s boss and buy yourself a pair. Trust us, it’ll make you feel better (we’re personal stylists, we know about this stuff)!!!!
