What inspired you to start your business?
    • Simply put - I LOVE shoes! I have always been drawn to fashion and expressing myself through clothing and footwear. As a young girl, I would look at all the lovely ladies in their stylish outfits and be drawn to their shoes. I didn't have a preference, I liked them all. As an adult, I enjoy dressing with purpose in the trends but also incorporating my own style. Over the years I realized that as my weight would go up and down, my shoes always fit. Adding the shoes wasn’t a chore it was a fun way to add pizazz. I found it easier and more fun to shop for shoes so naturally, my collection grew.
