HEELS FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T WEAR HEELS

This topic must be addressed. The world is not always fair, as we have especially seen in recent days. Months. While most take easily to heels and the rest grin and bear it, there are some, sadly, that are unable to squeeze their pedes into a sexy pair of Manolo Blahnik stilettos.

HISTORY OF COCO CHANEL

Yes of course Coco Chanel is synonymous with all that is True Fashionista, and label namesake Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel led quite the adventurous and exciting life, breaking ground and introducing now legendary items and looks that we just could not do without in our style pursuits.
