My Black Dress Collection


While reading (more like perusing, really, it’s hard to “read”) Women In Clothes, I was inspired to create a “collection” picture of all my black dresses.

Find Me | Gladiator Sandals

sturdy gladiator sandals

Kelly sent me a “Find Me” request and asked me to help her find some “sturdy” gladiator sandals (my description! I mean, good for walking A LONG TIME in) in bronze or gold metallic.
