Having just been to the Nordstrom's sale where people were rushing the shoe racks, I had to stand back and ask myself, just what is so different between a Tory Burch flat for $178 on sale and a 9 West. I have gotten to the stage in life, that it's not worth the $150 extra for an emblem, for the exact. same. look. Check it out. Oh trust me, in the old days, I would have been wearing them with bells on!
