How to Shop with a Shoe Fetish

“I’m in a committed relationship with my heels,” Erin Hiemstra says, with a laugh. “Though I’m tall, I’m a high-heel gal all the way—booties especially are my weakness.”

The self-proclaimed “Nordy’s gal” lets her sky-high heels, signature menswear-inspired watch and vintage accessories do the talking, pairing them with urban-chic, slightly androgynous wardrobe staples such as trim trouser pants and polished collared shirts that accentuate her statuesque form.
