An Uncompromised Boot for US Sizes 4-13 From Autograf New York

I used to be convinced that aesthetics were enough when it came to nabbing any shoes in my standard size 12-13—basically, if I liked a shoe’s looks, I would find a way to don it—no ifs, ands, or buts. Suffice it to say that this all-or-nothing mentality has since left me with some pretty battered…

Too much red could be overwhelming and intimidating, I guess—but a…

Tangled Up in Blue with Long Tall Sally

I am not a flashy girl. I have no piercings, no tattoos, and until I was 24, I had never dyed my hair (and even then, I went with a brownish-red that closely resembled my own hair color). When it comes to clothing, I favor earth tones, and most of my shoes are brown. But…
