Name That Shoe, Good Manners Edition

I’m a sucker for  outdated sartorial rules, such as not wearing white after Labor Day, and matching one’s shoes and handbag.  Of course, I never follow these rules, but just love that they exist!  One set of rules I do follow, are those of Emily Post.  She was the original maven of manners;  her book  Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home  was published in 1922 and is now up to it’s eighteenth edition.  Side note, I’m on a continual search for an original copy, and once I have the shelf space want to collect  all 18.  But that’s another story!  Do you ever find yourself in an etiquette quandary?  This new edition answers your standard fare (never wear white to a wedding), and tackles modern day dilemmas, including the manners of texting, tweeting, and Facebooking.  So, in her honor, we have the Emily: A subtle, two toned pump, with a moderate heel,  sling back,  and pleasant buttons.   I think Ms. Post would approve!

Politely snap up your own pair!
