Shoes. Where would any outfit be without them? Absolutely no ensemble is complete without a pair. In fact, shoes are the accessory that no woman minds trying on and everyone loves shopping for. But with shoes, no two pairs are created equal, meaning that in some cases, an outfit may be lacking the perfect pair–which is no way for a fashionista such as yourself to make an entrance! If your summer wardrobe happens to be lacking a range of styles and a shopping trip is in order for new shoes, there are plenty of shoe boutiques in the city worth paying a visit.
