Been chomping at the bit to see more of the Jimmy Choo

Everything is designed to be mixed and matched.
Some great fashion advice from Mellon: she starts conceptualizing an outfit based on the shoes first, and then the accessories. Do you ever dress from the bottom up? Or do you start with the clothes and then add on? [YouTube] Keep reading »
