Going to Back to School in style is very important.
You don’t want to be the one with last year’s shoes.
You don’t want a bag that is out of season.

Not you!

Plus you want to find affordable and friendly fashion too! So why not check out St. Francis Couture?!
Here is some information about the company:

Saint Francis Couture designs and manufactures high fashion, animal friendly shoes, accessories, and they are now introducing apparel.  The company’s founder and designer is Tere Albanese.  Tere is a vegetarian who eats nothing with a face or heart and refuses to wear anything made from animals.  She is a former hair stylist and high school English teacher.  “I thought the world needed some high fashion, moderately priced, comfortable, but sexy, shoes and accessories that were cruelty free,” said Tere.  “So I started drawing.  Saint Francis must have helped me because I had no idea how to draw.”  The company is named after Saint Francis, who is the patron saint of animals.  Her first line is the Africa Collection, which honors African Wildlife.  This month’s featured product is the Africa Sandal 3″ Heel.  This sexy sandal will turn heads, but the way it feels you’ll think you were wearing flip-flops.  6 – 12 in whole and half sizes.

I was sent a lovely pair of flats ’cause I can’t wear heels any more – I fall out of them and there is nothing fashionable about falling out of your shoes.  Trust me, I know.

The Africa Flats are well made and feel like leather even though they are not. The fit is good and they are comfortable to wear. I can see them going with a dress or with my jeans. The shoes are stylish and neutral at the same time which is great!

I have good news! I have an Africa Bag and an Africa Belt to give away to two lucky readers!
