Today I decided to take things on a personal side, so get a cup of tea and let's chat like friends. The tea is optional, of course, but you can not miss this lecture.

3 years later I still wear them when I want to look fabulous. I know that I can rely on them in these cases. Their aesthetic, the color combo and the shoe sole in the shape of a heart are some details that really make the difference. By the way, some time ago I wrote a blog post about the wow factor of an outfit, an article where I showed the crucial role that the details play.
However, recently, I made a change just to give them a new look: I cut the fringes! So here are they in the new version:
