Shoes, Glorious Shoes
Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”. To which we say amen. And conquering the world takes a lot of shoes! Here are some of our shoe finds today that include wonderful handmade (and affordable) shoe crafters from Italy to Vermont, very fun 70s style mules, and just because we love looking at them (not that we can afford them) a couple of to die for boots from the fall collections of Louboutin and Jimmy Choo.
M Gemi is a Boston based e-commerce company with roots in Florence. They’ve partnered with the top family-owned shoe factories to bring these beautiful handmade shoes here. They can only be purchased online, and the prices are considerably lower than what you would typically pay for high-end handmade Italian shoes. The shoes featured above range from $198 to $248. Belissimo!
