Want to Tango with Me?

So Mom’s latest order from American Duchess arrived recently. Today she decided to wear the Tango boots. Hers are in a LOVELY Ocean Blue.  Luckily we had help. (Thank you Aunt Karin, you really put up with me a lot today) She can wear her American Duchess shoes all day RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX! And she has long days!!!!!

I must tell you this shade of blue is STUNNING. It is perfect for her wardrobe and compliments her so well.

The heel is placed PERFECTLY in the center of the heel of the foot so your weight is evenly distributed. This makes the shoe FAR more comfortable and stable to walk in. The height of the heel is high enough to be elegant but low enough to be safe. These can work as a casual boot or more formal. An amazing design and I am so fortunate to own a pair (oops, I mean Mom is honored to own a pair)

Soon we will be taking a break to go to the seaside and I cannot imagine a better Looking bit of leather to wrap her delicate little tootsies is, can you?

So many consumers have become accustomed to the minimized timelines from the runway to the store’s in the fashion industry.  The majority of the items you see from store to store are basically copy and paste.  Designers buy items of interest and then recreate them with 7 points of interest that are changed to avoid getting sued.

Clothes make people..more now than ever.  We don’t always like to admit it, but we are judged by how we present ourselves to society.  If you are a bit overweight or getting on in years, you are basically invisible to the world.  You are noticed when you conform to what is considered beautiful by the current standards of society.  Over half of Instagram posts are about fashion influencers.  We seem to be enthralled with labels and those who are shopping addicts, thus they gravitate to to fast fashion.  The impulse to buy is triggered in a part of the brain that handles the rewards circuit, with the primary factor being the price.  

And we haven’t even started discussing the luxury brands!  The high end brands that for some reason are worth exorbitant amounts of money, far more than the costs of goods and labor, just to say you can afford to carry that brands label.
