Stuart Weitzman is my friend because his footwear tends to work well for my feet, and his shoes are beautifully made.

I've had my eye on these cognac Prada darlings for 6 weeks and am saving up for them. (Photo #1 - they are a little lighter in person). But look at what my friend just brought out for Fall (photo #2). Perhaps a little too Taupe, but what a stunning bootie. The SW's are also available in ink blue. (Inge, I'm waving at you). Boring styles to some, but gorgeously simple, sleek and refined to my eye.

Then of course - who knows what Zara will come up with. Their footwear can work quite well for my feet, and at a fraction of these prices.

I'm excited about how this will all turn out.
