Here's a dress I've had for quite a while. I love the floral pattern and I have a few sweaters that match so I can wear it during all kinds of weather.
As you can see, I really don't enjoy wearing shoes. I run around barefoot whenever I can and really haven't worn any of my "fancy" shoes since I went to college in Moscow. All the walking around, up hills and to the bus stop, it just doesn't bode well for me when put a pair of heels on.
