easy - Barbie. she had amazing shoes in plastic. but i could only wear them on my fingers... think her wetsuit likewise got me hooked.
while there are basic ballerina flats (loads of them and vivian westwood does a lot) and i do have a pair;
the Karin Rassid scooped heels are my fav. mine are basic black with shell like texture.
now why can't they do knee boots?
