COMMENT OF THE DAY: I found some really great size 6.5 lace up leather shoes!! Two pair actually! They may work!
Ah! These outfits are fabulous! Good on you for looking at this new phase as an opportunity. I will be a frequent visitor to your Etsy shop and hopefully a reg customer, too! (I wish we had the same shoe size however... but alas, I'm a measly size 6.)
