Received my Spring 2011 catalog today. The Strawfut and Sanford are back in the lineup. They are joined by some nice new weaves and others along with some new matching belts.

I went to visit it today. Bright lighting, thoughtfully lay-ed out, with lots of nice styles to choose from: 600 Madison Ave. 212 535-2100.

I attended the MRKet show at the Javits Center this week. The fall line AE presented caught my eye. Among them, some trads with cool new twists.
Good Lord... This thread has been gut busting hilarious to me!

The soles were McKay stitched on. With some, your toes will "roll" over the front of the sole leaving no protection for the uppers. That's what's causing the scuffing. Others may roll out to the side rather than the toe. Treat the scuffed area with polish and keep an eye on it. If it continues to get worse bring your shoes to a local cobbler and ask them to put extended tips on them. That will extend the sole slightly while preventing the scuffing.
Next time you need heels ask for 15 iron. They are slightly thicker and last longer. Another option is to ask for JR heels. They also last longer.
