    This is one of the best how-to posts I’ve ever read. Love the outfits and the advice is spot-on. I also like how everything on these photos is real, wearable and not exaggerated. I used to wear converse all star only, but now I’ve moved towards the models that kind of resemble oxford shoes and pair them in romantic outfits like your last one. Again, excellent post 🙂
