Hello, and welcome to the very first edition of Find it Fridays! My first challenge for Shine's weekly fashion scavenger hunt came from a reader named Stephanie. Here is her request:
"Please help! I need a chocolate brown dress shoes for a wedding that I'm going to be a bridesmaid in October. I've been given free reign in terms of style, but the color is non-negotiable. The ceremony is outdoors and involves walking over grass & gravel, so I'm hoping for something with a smaller heel or a wedge. Comfortable would be a major plus.
