Glam Your Gams with Claremont 1930s Oxfords

After tromping around the University of Nevada, Reno, campus for several hours, I’m more in love with these shoes than ever.  They’re comfy, snazzy, and totally made the ensemble.

The inspiration for this shoot came from old color photos, particularly Kodachrome images, from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.

Chris was the photographer, and I was the model.
