A picture is worth a thousand words

Months ago I received an email from one of our long-standing web writers,
Nancy Won. The subject line was bare and the email empty except for one attachment. Curious, I clicked on it to see what image could possibly warrant such a stoic delivery. Upon opening, a gasp escaped my lips and goose-bumps trickled up my arms. Ladies, you’ll appreciate this. It seems that Nancy was the proud, new owner of
Alexander Wang’s Freja lace-up boots. You know the ones I’m talking about: The peep-toe, military-inspired, urban-cool booties that go with everything, and that you would wear with anything. Nancy has always had a very Manhattan-meets-Dostoevsky vibe about her, so the footwear most certainly fit the female.
