  • Sandals with kitten heels or flat right will always be a fashion item that is a favorite model. But do not forget that the shoe you choose should be comfortable when wearing and not easy to do feet blister.

  • This chunky heels sandals are really cool and giving pleasant look with the minis that are designed and made beautifully and nice...

  • Jersey edge clothing idea is attractive, but the price isn’t affordable for a normal person.

  • All those Looks you mentioned above looks OK-OK ,only Jersy Edge looks good & styler Toes of casual looks fine U can give a nice combination to fancy calm then now..Hope U Will show better looks in your next post.

  • these aren't really accessible to the average person. would be nice to see something more reasonably priced in these features. i realize that people have the internet at their feet when compiling a blog post like this so it's tempting to include those $300 shoes, but it just takes a teeny tiny bit more effort to search for pieces priced at under $100.
