The Epitome of Style

Our favorite childhood shoes may be long gone but the memories they create never stray too far. Stephanie Chambers shared a beautiful story about her memories of beginning first grade and the shiny saddle oxfords that took her there in the “epitome of style.”

“My Mom took a picture of me with hands on my hips, ready to conquer first grade. Three hours later, when it was time for lunch, I wandered the hall in tears. I couldn’t write my name and had forgotten my lunch money. The years have washed away the tears, but the magic of the way those shoes made me feel still remains.”–Stephanie Chambers
