Jenna Lyons is an interesting woman. Not only is she the head of J.Crew, but also the six foot tall beauty (sans heels) never leaves the house without an additional 5 inch pair of heels on.
She’s certainly an inspiration for those who think that they’re “too tall,” and now she may be an inspiration for those who think they don’t own enough pairs of shoes. Jenna Lyons has just confessed that she owns about 289 pairs of shoes, some of which she’s never worn.
Why does Lyons own so many pairs of shoes? “There’s a sense of sparkle in a shoe, and I don’t mean the sparkle like sequins. I mean, you know, as a little extra… Shows are like fairies, like that sort of little magical piece that finishes everything. I can throw on a silver, five-inch-heel pump, and all of a sudden, I feel a little bit prettier.”
I agree Jenna, I agree.
