Shoes Clips you say, eh? Sure they have been around since the victorian era and are a treasure to come across within the vintage market. We just recently began working with the very talented Vivian Wu, who founded the shoe clip company Jacob Lily. Vivian started making shoe clips as a hobby, she used clips to embellish her shoes but also her clutches, headbands, necklaces and just about anything that you could clip one of those bad boys on to.

While it's fun to look good, it's even more enjoyable and important to do good while looking good. For every pair of shoe clips purchased, Vivan donates $1 USD to Women For Women International. WFWI provides women survivors of war, civil strife, and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move on from poverty to stability and self-sufficiency.
