at Momma Told Me

If you’ve ever struggled to match your outfit to your shoes, dekkori is for you! Perfect for those perfect pumps (the ones you can’t seem to ever take off because they simply go with everything), Dekkori can turn any heel into a boot, or any sandal into a sexy sling. With only the finest faux and real materials, Dekkori has created a catalog of the world’s first Designer Shoe Accessories. Much like you would put on a stunning necklace, or snap on a sweetly elegant bracelet, these shoe accessories can transform any pair of shoes into an entirely new fashion! With a standard 3 size fits all system, the Dekkori line is often adjustable for the perfect fit. How do these work, exactly? Most Dekkori styles slip on (think of them as chaps for your feet), with a support and stabilization band that discretely matches your shoes (beneath the sole). Styles range from faux furs accents and grommet leather straps to bold chunky leather uppers and creased fringes. Best of all, you can always take your shoes from Fall to Spring, or Day to Night in 0-30! Stop by and check out Dekkori Shoe Accessories today!

PZI Jeans has made a discovery...CURVES come in all shapes and sizes! Why did it take so long for someone to finally realize that? Women can find short jeans, tummy tuck jeans, skinny people jeans...but what about jeans for women with curves? Finally women are relieved that they can buy a pair of jeans that fit their curves and they don’t have to feel like they are wearing the really high waisted ‘grandma’ jeans or wear a belt just to keep their jeans from gaping at the waist.
