French Sole AW19-Why you will want to kick off your heels!

by

French Sole AW19 collection is the perfect reason to kick off your high -heels and swap for flats! Not an easy statement for me to make as there was a time when I would only wear 5″ heels. Times have changed, however, and I can’t imagine my shoe-closet without flats.

Sir, for me every day is Halloween

Sir, for me every day is Halloween.

That’s how I usually respond when someone compliments me on my Halloween costume, even though it’s not a costume but what I wear on a daily basis.

 

Well any time, any place, anywhere that I go
All the people seem to stop and stare
They say “why are you dressed like it’s Halloween?
You look so absurd, you look so obscene.
Well I let their teeny minds think
That they’re dealing with someone who is over the brink
And I dress this way just to keep them at bay
‘Cause Halloween is every day
It’s every day.
