A Shoe-In

Photography: Joseph Molines | Retro Heels by Diane Von Furstenberg

There is a nostalgia attached to these heels for me. They remind me of my mother, the 1970's, and the youth of that immigrant generation.

I suppose that is why I am immediately drawn to the fashion and design of that decade. It is a reminder of how dignified my parents looked despite their poverty and reality.

There is much to be said about taking care and putting on your best when in front of the world, because if you don't think that you are worthy, who else will?

I wish people still adhered to that way of living and being.

There is so much that is lost through transition and in the passing of one generation to the next. -tM
