~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here is an example
Kathryn Kerrigan Shoe Boutique: Stephanie Sack, owner of Chicago’s vive la femme, is teaming up with Kathryn Kerrigan, who designs and sells shoes for tall women through her Libertyville business Kathryn Kerrigan Inc.Together, they’re opening Kathryn Kerrigan Shoe Boutique in May at 2031 N. Damen Ave. in Bucktown. The shop will specialize in high-end women’s shoes in European sizes from 39 to 45. “After hosting a number of successful trunk shows featuring Kathryn’s gorgeous shoes, I decided to open up a Kathryn Kerrigan boutique of my own,” Ms. Sack says. Styles will include comfortable and versatile flats in neutral and “pop” colors, jean-friendly wedges with street-chic detailing and classic kitten heels evoking the 1940s and 1950s.
