What We Saw:
Shoes, shoes, boots, shoes---for Fall 2013 by footwear designers -the Paris based Laurence Dacade, and Tania Spinelli...lined up in all their gorgeous glory at the Greg Mills Showroom in Manhattan.
Beyond the 'similar' luxuriousness of all the designs and materials...and darker hues for Fall-the selections offer women a wide range of posh styles-from sexy glam to feminine interpretation of men's shoes.

Elegant, and using the finest materials-her made in Italy pumps (single sole and slight platforms), lace up and cut-out booties, ankle, combat and tall boots for Fall 2013-are polished and "uncluttered"---with the styles and workmanship -speaking for themselves-in a matter of speaking.
