Fall Footwear Shopping at Matt Bernson

The shoe fits at Tribeca-based footwear brand  My first Matt Bernson purchase was late September at their Westport store during their end-of-summer sale.

I constantly shop at work. This comes as no surprise, considering I work at a boutique with merchandise that’s both adorable and reasonably priced in the middle of Westport.  I bought a few things before I ran to Newport… While I was in Rhode Island, I stopped by Crosswynds Traders in Narragansett.
