WASHINGTON, DC -- At School...Best Foot Forward, Howard University


To put your best foot forward this summer please get a stellar pair of sandals that make you own any look! It's not by coincidence either that Harper's Bazaar's May 20th Best Buy Of The Day feature was a pair of Etro sandals (pictured below) so getting that pair of sandals for the summer couldn't come at a more opportune moment.

I love the detailing on young lady's sandals that gives it that safari chic look thats going to be big this summer. Also, going for a sandal that has an ankle strap of some sort will only flatter, accentuate, and draw admirers to the physique of your ankle/lower leg. The Etro sandals really capture the gladiator sandal trend with the volume of straps it has. The young lady's sandal, on the other hand, is a more delicate rendition of the gladiator sandal with its single strap. In appreciating the entire sandal complete with its creative ankle straps, it is only natural for the movement of the eyes to welcome the beauty of the lower leg (and hopefully your entire outfit if your as stylish as Ms. Ashley here)! So do away with those flip flops and put your best foot forward people and you can't go wrong this summer!

Aside from this topic, what are your plans for the future?

As of now...a PhD in clinical/health psychology with an emphasis in cardiovascular neuroscience is the plan. I do plan to maintain my love for photojournalism and fashion. During my mid life crisis, I will get heavily involved in my love for art/fashion and devote greater time to it. Spawn a label or pursue my passion for fashion photography...the future awaits and I can't wait to see what unfolds

Derryl said...

wow!! with all that work ahead how will you ever find the time to start a family?

Chike-Ikechi Is said...

:) Yes, my aspirations are big and yes, they can seem overwhelming, but I am great at balancing work and play/family. I find time for me and in doing so, I can always find time for a wife and children when I enter that phase of my life.
