If you are anything like most women, shoes play a critical role in your life.  Shoes can actually affect your mood in a way that no other material purchase seems to be able to.  There is nothing quite like slipping on a brand new pair of shoes--Not the right jeans, dress or haircut.  Shoes always fit (unless you are pregnant), no matter how bad your day is going, whether you need to lose 5 pounds, havent blown dry your hair or put on a stitch of makeup.  None of this seems to matter if you have the perfect shoes, they can make you forget just about everything else and focus, even for a brief period, on your feet. This fun, gifty book leading shoe retailer DSW celebrates shoe lovers with stories, fashion tips, and career/business advice. This book will also give readers practical tips for picking the right shoe for not just the right outfit, but also the right occasion in their lives.  This book will not only make Shoe Lovers feel better about loving shoes, it will also tell everyone a little bit about the mad business genius that is DSW.  How did DSW become not only Americas favorite place for shoes but also one of Americas Best Retail Places to Work (according to Forbes, November, 2012)?  The secret is DSWs core principles:  1) Passion, 2) Accountability, 3) Collaboration and 4) Humility which percolate from their headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, into each of their retail locations (350 and climbing), their over 20 million Rewards customers, and over 1.5 million fans on Facebook.  Place for Shoes.
