In the midst of the crowds, the work, the adrenaline, the networking and the reunions, conferences can seem overwhelming even if you love them, as I do. And sometimes, only shoes can do the talking. Even though they are pretty high, I wore my Chie Mihara heels for most of the conference--besides working better with my dresses than my Surface to Air flats, they also helped shave off the pounds I've packed on since Christmas. These are the shoes (picture borrowed from another blog as I'm at work).
I met several people through them as they came up to me and told me that they were the greatest shoes ever. While I would disagree, they are nice. They also demonstrate the power of an eye-catching accessory at conferences.
