Sometimes all it takes is a special pair of shoes or a memorable moment to launch one's love affair with footwear. My moment happened at around eight or so. I was in Japan with my grandmother who was wild about all things fashion related, and she took me shopping one afternoon and purchased my first pair of semi heeled shoes. They were white and for whatever reason they were the first of many I'd admire. 


Although there is an obscene amount of dreamy footwear available, one that has caught my eye for some time now is Paris-based designer, Laurence Dacade. Her namesake collection launched in 2003 and can be found in stores internationally. Laurence Dacade mentioned her love affair began when she was fourteen years old and made her first solo shoe purchase which were a red and blue pair of striped ballerinas with a large bow. Her basis for inspiration is rooted in designing shoes for Cinderella, in conjunction with a rock and roll love and an underlying sex appeal. With training at the Afpic School and designing gigs at other big brands, we can always expect her shoes to have that comfort and Parisian ease.Update your wardrobe with a pair of lavish boots from Laurence Decade's collection this fall. Both the buckle and studded boots have stolen my heart.
