Beautiful shoes in every size- I’ve been plagued, lifelong, with the curse of wearing heels 2 sizes too small, even to my own wedding (insane, right?) Surprisingly, it’s a compromise more and more women are forced to make each year. As if fashionable shoes aren’t tormenting enough with their straps and micro heels, thousands of us are forced to wear sizes that don’t properly fit. Fashion over fit, right? No! Just because it is hard to find stylish shoes in sizes 9+, does not mean you must be subject to men’s sizes and generic brands. In the spirit of remedying this epidemic, Barefoot Tess was born; an online emporium of shoes sized 9+. Finally an exclusive shoe club made just for people like me. Let the reverse discrimination begin! Not only can shoppers choose from an impressively comprehensive catalog of top designers such as Corso Como, Ed Hardy, and Blowfish- they can shop Barefoot Tess' exclusive line of evergrowing designs! The real life woman behind the brand, Tess, is a sort of All American every woman- struggling to balance her life and career between hunting for fitting footwear. She's fashion savvy, yet diverse in function, and loves shoes with the same passion as many busy juggling her exciting life to scour websites, wait on inventory orders, and call stores! With other red blooded women. Tess wants the same envious shoe closet her size 6 and 7 counterparts enjoy; whether that means a collection of sandals and wedges or runway heels and boots. And she's too the help of her mother, in 2005, Tess launched the one stop alternative sizing shoe-wear site, Barefoot Tess, and my feet rejoice! Fall fashions in the hottest designer brands, and the Barefoot Tess name, are rolling in now, so head on over! Drop on by Momma Told Me during the Fall Fashionista Event and enter to win a pair of shoes from Barefoot Tess!
