Italian Lessons in the Car and “The Hungry”

May 31, 2011


Dear Steve Madden, Ouch! First time in my life these shoes hurt my feet. They are adorable and flat but I think that I have already worn them out from all my walking! In Larino with Miss Ford I walked in them for over 12 hours in one day. Flat shoes look cute but they are […]
