Shoe Woo, the new shoe store owned by Jones Company (of Jones New York) enjoyed its grand opening today in Union Station, replacing what once held Nine West. Though Shoe Woo will offer Nine West soles, along with other Jones offerings Anne Klein, Bandolino, Enzo Angiolini etc., the space is dramatically different. Fabulously… dare I say it… New York? It looks like somewhere Carrie Bradshaw would shop: bright white light, purplish-colored bauble chandeliers, display shoes spinning (yes–spinning!) on pedestals, impeccably dressed and attentive sales associates. Shoe expert and collector Lilly Harvey of has already made an announcement last month of the opening. There was a spread of women’s magazines on the counter and I think I may have seen a copy of Lipstick Jungle under a pair of snakeskin gladiator sandles. Just might have.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
