Being rather new to the fashion enthusiast world, I’m always learning about new designers, making the fashion world exciting and new despite the fact that I tend towards retro and vintage. However, as the Divia Harilela so eloquently notes in her article on, (!/articles/7095-the-haute-seat-lane-crawfod-shoes), most people pay attention to the newest, up-and-coming designers. Quality and history is not something so easily forgotten. She talks about her first pair of designers shoes from Manolo Blahnik, a shoe designer of Czech and Spanish origin who popularized the stiletto heel in the 1970’s. Here’s a pair I especially like:

And here’s another pair featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (what an honor for a designer to be featured in a museum – a sphere so often not open to the fashion designer despite the obvious “art” of fashion):

Hey I'm Jennifer. I'm a traveler, an artist, specifically fiber, a student, a fashion/color enthusiast, and, sadly for you, a rambler. :) This is just me shouting out to the world amongst a whole lot of other noise...
