How was your love of women’s footwear?
From girl I have this fascination with shoes. I remember when my mom left the house there was nothing more fun to dive into your closet and put all the accessories but always found the most caught my attention were the heels. I locked myself in the closet and I started walking to find the highest to wear them.
She had red were my favorites and started to walk down a long passage that was in my house until my nana heard them and forced me to leave them in place and to order everything. I hated ordering! It was my nightmare.
And over time my love of high heels has become even more loyal. I have to admit I do not live without them, but I’m measuring 1.78 as the highest. They have become a must both in my closet and in my car, even in the office. You will always find in the trunk of my car a couple under my desk and another.
