There’s something about slipping on a pair of embellished, lust-worthy heels that’s like getting a fabulous new haircut. You may walk into the salon feeling blasé, but just a short while later you strut out working your new you. The feeling of confidence, sexiness and freedom gained in that short period of time overrides everything else in your life. For that moment, there’s no one and nothing that can stop you. With a great pair of heels, boots or sandals, you can get that fix just about every day. Something about shoes — the glitz, the glam, the fashion — makes every woman’s world a little more magical. Being the president, creative director and buyer for two Perry Footwear and Collections boutiques can be quite time-consuming and draining. Having said that, I must admit I love what I do. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. There’s something about watching other women become empowered through a brandnew pair of shoes that makes me feel like I’m making the world a better place. Using simple satisfaction to boost self-esteem and confidence makes my job truly rewarding. And it’s not just about the shoes; it’s about giving someone something that makes everything else seem smaller somehow — and, of course, there are also the handbags and the enticing price tags to match. Spring collections have always been my favourite. The cutting-edge attention to detail that shines through on a barely-there sandal simply makes me speechless. The sheer number of textures, materials, embellishments, heel heights and colour options are countless. With so many breathtaking choices, my wonderful job requires me to ask myself, “What are my customers going to drool over?” I think 2014 is going to be a bright year, as shades of orange splash the market for spring. Following that pop-colour trend are floral prints, reptilian textures, spiked hardware and tribal inspirations. Aggressive, confident, empowering styles will be hitting the streets hard; and they are bound to have the equivalent effect on their takers. So if you stop and think for a moment, you might muse that maybe it is possible to change the world using fashion-forward footwear. At Perry Footwear and Collections on Reid Street in Hamilton, we try to do our part — one pair of stilettos at a time.
