Hey high heel lovers!

For some reason, I really love infographics! If you’ve never heard of an infographic, you’ve probably seen one before. They are all over Pinterest and blogs nowadays. In case you don’t know what they are, infographics are visual aids that provide a fun and quick way to learn about any topic, with out heavy reading. If you happen to be a “pin head” (Pinterest-crazed person) like myself, than you have definitely seen one of these. {By the way, make sure you’re following us on Pinterest for more behind the scenes, deals, and contests!}

Anyway, I decided to make my own infographic about our favorite topic: high heels! I’m not a graphic designer… I just made this on Polyvore, but I’m happy with it! Also, I found some really entertaining facts about high heels to share with you! Without further ado:
