BATA #shoeparty: S/S 2017 collection

There are bag ladies, and then there are shoe ladies. I find myself going through phases: one year it is the former, but in the last two years I have probably purchased more shoes than bags. I also tend to prefer quality to quantity as well as stores that specialise in shoes (except Zara of […]
