Heather Claus, is a style guru who has made a living off the internet teaching women about their personal style, since 1995, on her site 365 Days of Style. The site is fun, interactive and a great place to learn about your own sense of style! Read below to find about this week’s Shoe Queen!
FG: Who designed your shoes and where did you buy them?
HC: I purchased these Oh Deer! stilettos at a local shop know for it’s funky style, Edge of Urge (http://www.edgeofurge.com/).
FG: Is there a story behind why you purchased them?
HC: When I was a teenager, there was a pricey boutique in downtown Ames, Iowa that carried a cork briefcase that enthralled me. There was just something about the look and feel of cork that I couldn’t resist. Unfortunately, at $1,350, it was out of my price range, not to mention that I had no need for a briefcase at 15. *grins* As soon as I saw these shoes, they took me back to that time, and I knew that I had to have them. I still don’t have the briefcase, but I suspect it would now pale in comparison – since it didn’t have black patent leather trim! *smiles*
Finish these sentences with your own phrase…
FG: A good pair of stilettos makes you______________
HC: feel powerful. I figure if I can master the walk in a pair of stillettos, I can do anything. *smiles*
FG: If we could walk a mile in your shoes_________________
HC: you’d probably think I was crazy! Not only are these shoes NOT meant for walking a mile (although I’ve done it, for sure), I usually take some obscure path through life that only I can see. Luckliy, most of my friends trust me! *smiles*
FG: Stilettos are like_____________ everyone _______________
HC: lingerie that everyone can see! *grins*
