Love Metallics for Style
I gotta come clean. I’m addicted to metallics. Especially metallic accessories. Because, let’s face it, they go with everything and they are so much more interesting than black. I was having a massage on Orcas island and my MT said to me: “I normally don’t remark on clients clothing but I have to tell you […]

True Gault pop up shop in NYC
Are you wondering what happens at a True Gault custom shoe scanning party? I first went to one a few years ago and it’s been exciting to see how the company has advanced their technology. At the first party they had dozens of shoes that you would try on for fit. That is now not necessary. You […]
