Elizabeth Haik Johnson had on some fabulous sparkling Jessica Simpson shoes Wednesday night at the Junior League's Tinsel and Treasures Preview Party.
"From my new store," she told us.
Come again? Elizabeth, who has long practiced law, is now at the helm of the Kaliste Saloom shoe heaven after purchasing the franchise from the Houma-based shoe store.
"Practicing law is so hard for a family," she says.
And with two girls at home and baby number three on the way, Elizabeth felt Shoe Fits would be just the fit.
