One of the chinese traditions I was brought up with was to always wear new shoes in the new year, which was symbolic to stepping into a good year. Given that it's only March and I've already gained 5 new additions to my collection, I could only hope that it will put me 5 steps ahead of the game. Showing 3/5 I bought and the Jeffrey Campbell's X-ON wedges are my new favorites. They give me the height yet surprisingly beyond comfortable to walk in :) And yes, those are cherry blossoms in the background...I can't wait until spring officially lands in Vancouver. Hope you are all just as excited as I am!
