Anniversary Countdown: May (four days late)

I have never been one to wear black sandals much. I think they tend to look bulky most of the time, and bulky is always bad, right? Don’t get me wrong, folks always come into the store looking for black sandals and we always carry a few cute pairs. And of course, I own a […]
