A hard act to follow…

Greetings friends,

This week’s dedication to shoes of brilliance continues with another firm favorite namely LK Bennett.  The brand – much coveted by the fashionable Brits – gained international critical acclaim when the Duchess of Cambridge wears them.  Arguably the most recognized shoe worn by her is the Sledge Heel (In the flesh color known by LK Bennet as “Trench”) which has now gained iconic status the world over.  The sleek stiletto heel includes a modern platform, softened almond toe and made from 100% Leather.

Next shoe brand that I adore and can highly recommend is Melissa.
