TS Notice 12_17 The shoe of the week over on TalkShoes is this Charlotte Olympia Fiesta Wedge, which just might make you want to shimmy. We also have another celebrity to add to the Casadei Blade pump fan list, and that’s Kate Beckinsale. Our editor, Katherine, picked out everything she wanted this holiday season, and trust us, it’s a lot of good stuff. Speaking of the holidays, why not kick back the end of 2014 in these 12 pairs of very festive holiday flats?
