october is breast cancer awareness month

"it's called 'pinkwashing'.  you say you care about people's lives but you're doing things that make them sick at the same time.  we're saying clean up your products or stop saying you care about breast cancer."
- barbara brenner

"what becomes of the broken-hearted? they buy shoes."
- mimi pond

fresh off the korean courier boat!! check out my brand new, hand made pumps and ballets!! comfiest shoes ever with design elements that could rival - well, let's face it, we all know who - though at a FRACTION of the cost. despite standing a full 4" taller in the platform pumps, my centre of gravity remains very stable and the arch of my foot is not at all strained. same with the jewelled peep toes. the flats come with padded insoles and, on the bottom, reinforced front and heel areas. gotta get your hands on a pair? i know a guy....
