Madrid by Vince Camuto

Huh? A calling bird? What the h-e-double hockey sticks is that? A bird that has mastered telephonic communication? I don’t get it. And I’m not the only one. Wikipedia’s article on “The Twelve Days of Christmas” states that “calling birds” was originally “colly birds,” meaning blackbirds.

Killer Madrid Pumps

Vince Camuto’s patent Madrid pumps let your delicate, adorable toes peek through in front, while a tapered heel tells the world that you’re a force to be reckoned with.
