Twelve Days of Shoe Shopping #7: Swans/Xosas

On the seventh day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,

Twelve Days of Shoe Shopping #3: Hens/Beyla

On the third day of Christmas
My true love gave to me

Even that perennial epitome of cool, James Bond, couldn’t resist the Marans’ chocolate brown eggs.

My true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree

He knows the way to my heart is through my feet. Birds and trees are just fine, but new shoes are divine.
