Dear Frances

August 8, 2016




Dear Frances, I’ve been meaning to write you… Thank you for making me feel so feminine, empowered, confident and strong! Thank you for being a perfect “cherry on top” to a newly found old me, just better, more improved version. I’m approaching my 29th birthday and I have never felt better in my own skin. Pair of shoes like these… Work like a pure magic in how a girl feels!

I believe in that quote: “Give girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world.” That quote is absolutely not overrated, it’s 100% true! This comes from a girl which was always avoiding buying or wearing high heels for pretty much her whole life. I do love my flat sandals, ballerinas, comfy sneakers, etc… But nothing, NOTHING makes me feel as confident and assure of my myself as a perfectly fitting pair of high heels. Even if nobody would notice me when I pass by, I would still feel like I have all of the power to rule my little heart shaped¬†world. ūüėÄ



I’ve been avoiding buying or wearing high heels due to the fact that I’m a very tall girl ( 6’1” ) and if I add high heels to that, I always used to feel like a giant, but not anymore. I have remembered how I used to love to wear high heels back in the time when I was shortly a model and used to walk down the runway… That feeling x 100 is how I feel now, that I’m a woman and have finally decided that being feminine doesn’t mean being “cheap”, uncomfortable or provocative. Those are completely different mind sets and feelings… Feeling feminine after your whole life feeling like a “flat” and too tall ugly duckling is such a refreshing and wonderful state to be in. I have never felt more driven and “myself” as I do now.



Dear Frances is a wonderful shoe brand, based in London. All of their shoes are made of prime Italian leather and are all handmade. Dear Frances brings a unique and fresh vision to luxury footwear design. Timeless, elegant, unique and minimalistic shoes won over hearts of many women around the world.

Dear Frances (Rakas Frances), minun aikomukseni on ollut kirjoittaa sinulle…Kiitos ett√§ saat minut tuntemaan itseni naiselliseksi, energiseksi, itsevarmaksi ja vahvaksi. Kiitos ett√§ olet piste iin p√§√§ll√§ uudelle, mutta paremmalle ja p√§ivitetylle versiolle vastik√§√§n l√∂yt√§m√§st√§ni vanhasta min√§st√§ni. L√§hestyn minun 29 vuotis syntym√§p√§ivi√§ni. Enk√§ ole ikin√§ tuntenut oloani tyytyv√§isemm√§ksi omassa nahassani. T√§llainen pari kenki√§… tekee ihmeit√§ sille ett√§ miten nainen tuntee olonsa.

Uskon siihen sitaattiin jossa sanotaan ett√§ “Jos annat naiselle oikea kenk√§parin, niin h√§n valloittaa koko maailman” Tuo sitaatti ei ole yliarvostettu, vaan se on 100% totta! Ja t√§m√§ tulee naiselta joka on v√§ltt√§nyt koko ik√§ns√§ korkokenkien ostamista ja pit√§mist√§. Min√§ rakastan minun litteit√§ sandaaleja, balleriinoja ja miellytt√§vi√§ lenkkareita. Mutta mik√§√§n, siis MIK√Ą√ĄN ei saa minua tuntemaan itse√§ni niin itsevarmaksi ja itsetietoiseksi kun t√§ydellisesti istuva korkokenk√§ pari. Ja vaikka kukaan ei huomaisi minua heit√§ ohittaessani. Min√§ tuntisin silti, ett√§ minulla on kaikki valta hallita minun pikku syd√§men muotoista maailmaani. ūüôā

Olen aina v√§ltellyt korkokenkien ostamista ja k√§ytt√§mist√§, ihan siit√§ syyst√§ ett√§ olen todella pitk√§ tytt√∂ (185 cm). Ja jos lis√§isin viel√§ siihen pakettiin korkokeng√§t, niin tuntisin itseni j√§ttil√§iseksi. N√§in ajattelin aina ennen, mutten en√§√§. Olen muistellut sit√§ ett√§ rakastin aina k√§vell√§ muotiesityksiss√§ korkokengiss√§, lyhyehk√∂ksi j√§√§neen malliurani aikana… Tuo tunne x 100 on se mink√§ tunnen nyt. Ja se ett√§ olen nainen. Ja olen vihdoinkin p√§√§tt√§nyt ett√§ se ett√§ on naisellinen ei tarkoita sit√§ ett√§ on “halpa”, ep√§mukava tai provosoiva. Nuo ovat taas t√§ysin eri tuntemuksia ja fiiliksi√§…Se ett√§ tuntee itsens√§ naiselliseksi sen j√§lkeen kun olet tuntenut itsesi koko el√§m√§n ajan “litte√§ksi” rumaksi ankanpoikaseksi. On todella virkist√§v√§ ja mahtava olotila miss√§ olla. En ole ikin√§ tuntenut itse√§ni n√§in energiseksi ja “min√§ksi” kuten nyt teen.

Dear Frances on mahtava kenkä merkki, jonka päämaja sijaitsee Lontoossa. Kaikki heidän kengät on valmistettu ensiluokkaisesta Italialaisesta nahasta, ja ovat käsintehtyjä. Dear Frances tuo uniikin ja tuoreen näkemyksen luksus jalkine suunnitteluun. Heidän ajattomat, hienostuneet, ainutlaatuiset ja minimalistiset kengät ovat voittaneet monen naisen sydämet ympäri maailman.

Dear Frances kenkiä voi ostaa heidän nettikaupasta. Ja he myös toimittavat maailmanlaajuisesti.

Toivotan teille oikeen ihanaa Maanantaita leidit.

    predivne crno bijele fotografije, sjajno izgledaŇ°, kao neka rock zvijezda! Meni je baŇ° super kada visoke cure nose visoke pete…to je poruka samopouzdanja, kao kada niske cure nose ravne cipele…zaŇ°to ne? ZaŇ°to bi uvijek trebalo postińái neku sredinu, puno je ljepŇ°e kada uŇĺivamo u razlińćitostima.

    Cipele koliko vidim divno izgledaju.

    These photos of you are amazing!! I love the shoes and the jacket. I didn’t know you were once a model. Fun to learn more about you. I am tall too, 5”10′, and I love heels. I do feel kind of giant in them sometimes though.
