Fire up the Quattrini!
I hope you all have a peaceful day tomorrow, and beyond, whatever you are doing and whatever your culture. I’ve scheduled as many lovely images as time would allow, but I will be back to normal with the usual goodies (imagery and real life frocks you can buy) in the New Year.
Thank you and Happy New Year!

Skyscraper heels announce a new, more refined shape for shoes in 1974. All the leading shoe designers endorse this feeling, though the heel heights vary.
