OMG. We stopped by the Roger Smith Hotel this week to check out Gabrielle Carlson’s Trunk Show event and to check out the custom made shoes by True Gault. We were in heaven. Gab has so many beautiful new designs we hardly knew where to turn.
And if you love shoes, you must check out True Gault. They scan your feet and then send that off to Spain where they make you a handcrafted pair of shoes that fit your feet perfectly. All this happening at the Roger Smith Hotel @47th and Lex, NYC.
