Finds on a Dime. Fashion Translation — Dressing for Another Continent (& Currency)

This column is a tribute to a dear friend of mine, Hilary, who just
returned from two years abroad in Thailand. She returned to the United
States this very week and she made some suggestions for her first
(budgeted) shopping trip back home. Back to a different fashion realm,
and a different dollar, here is what Hilary said she craves after two
years overseas.

First and foremost – Hilary is a footwear connoisseur. One of her
greatest hardships abroad was not necessarily finding footwear, but rather finding footwear that fit her above-Thai-average shoe size. After surviving in flip flops for two years, I think it’s time for her to show some glamour to that upcoming pedicure.

For my dear friend’s first summer back in the United States, I think her first acquisition should be a colorful pair of wedges or platforms. These adorable Betsey Johnson’s and Seychelles
are perfect for those window-shopping excursions for the upcoming
season. And for those more glamorous events that involve a little black
dress, she will surely make some heads turn with these Boutique 9 sandals and BCBG peep-toes.
