Farewell sunny days
While Winter has finally caught up with us, the atypical seasonal weather still allowed me to sport one of my favourite looks.

Edward Green stands for footwear excellence on all accounts. From ready-to-wear models to bespoke alternatives, one is expecting nothing short of perfection when purchasing any of their items…and the price tag reflects just that. One of the first things that comes to mind after dishing the + €700 for a pair of exquisite shoes, is how to adequately care for them to extend their life span and...

jordypordipuddingandpie asked: possibly work (sorry about that). I was wondering if you could point me in any direction (also im from Australia... so sometimes that's a bit difficult to work with buying male clothing that actually fits a woman, as our fashion hasn't really gotten to that stage) :P
