“With winter approaching I’m getting into my usual fall dilemma (which I have obviously failed to solve). To be totally honest, I am relatively particular about shoes. In the summer I wear flip flops, strappy flat sandals, toms and for work and nice dinners out, ballet flats. I basically refuse to wear heels unless I absolutely must. I can’t wear boots because of high arches (if I can get them on, they usually pinch my feet so much that they go numb) and this applies to almost every pair of boots I’ve ever tried on or tried to try on. My question is, what shoes can I wear to be semi-dressed up in the winter, for birthday parties, nice dinners out, or on a more casual day to work (I’m a lawyer)? You know, just for day to day, cute shoe wearing. To give you an idea of style, I shop a lot at J. Crew and Anthropologie, but don’t really get into trends too much. Please help!!!” – Emily
