Velvet shoes- perhaps the ultimate way to add just a drop more of interest to an outfit. I only got the idea of doing this post when my roommate came home today raving about velvet shoes. So I explained that velvet shoes are great, I think, for suburb life, or a city day with perfect weather. But shoes get pretty ruined in Manhattan and so I keep my velvet shoes back home. I think velvet is perfect for adding a fancy touch without heels... heels hurt. I love them but anyone who says that they are more comfortable that a pair of good flats is lying to you.
