Riding on her Heels*



" When I'm riding around Dallas, I'm always dressed up in my heels. So people follow me and take a lot of pictures of me. I used to be really private and turn away from them, but now I think, ah' maybe they're getting a picture of the shoes "
~Rocio Ildemaro a.k.a scooter girl*
.
...Dallas-based shoe designer Rocio Ildemaro, is one of exciting talents to hit the footwear market and also one of the most unlikely. A former investment banker, she gave up crunching numbersss... & moved to Italy five years ago, where she learned the art of shoe-making and launched her namesake collection of boots and high heels (now going on her second full season), which she describes as "classic with a rock star twist." Her fabulous shoes, are fast becoming a cult favorite among fashion editors. ~Isn't she quite a character?! Always admire those who chase after their dreams & passions ...oooh that scooter is such a darling as well! ~You go girrrlll !!!
