Shoe Lover: Khayla M.
Job: Healthcare Administrator
Current city: Jersey City
When we spotted this lovely lady, she had her face buried in her phone, trying to get her GPS to function. What was she looking for? The closest DSW. We’re not kidding. Can someone say happy coincidence? After pointing her in the right direction we asked her about her chic, urban style, her list of fall essentials, and the craziest thing she’s done for a pair of shoes.
Where are you from?
I’m originally from Tennessee, but I live in Jersey City.
Tell us about those shoes you’re wearing.
They’re my favorite pair; I’ve had them for years. Probably got them at DSW actually! Every girl needs a pair of easy-to-walk-in heels that you can wear from day to night.
Absolutely, plus we love the lace-up detail! How would you describe your personal style?
Definitely focused on comfort. I wear jeans a lot and I’m definitely a button down kind of girl.
Chic and easy—what would you say are your three essential pairs for fall?
Ankle boots that you can wear with anything
Combat boots—you’ve got to really battle the weather around here!
Agreed, East Coast weather can get pretty nasty! What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for a pair of shoes?
I’ve decided to ignore my bills and buy new shoes!
