Definitely my top favorite reason why I'm missing living abroad is the shoes. It's such an artistic statement, and a fun way to express yourself, might I add. The stores that offer stylish shoes in the US are hard to come by. Of course this only reveals that there is not much of a demand for killer shoes in the states. It's unfortunate, really...I drooled over shoes when I traveled in Italy, Ireland and London.
However, Penelope and Coco give me a glimmer of hope.
