Asked by The Wall Street Journal if she had any stories about her father she wished to share, 22-year-old Kathryn Lhota, daughter of New York City mayoral candidate Joe Lhota, praised his taste in footwear.

The guy has an amazing sense of women’s shoes. I will say 80% of my shoes come from my dad, and I can’t wait for Christmas. And my birthday. My dad runs the gamut with shoes: high heels, boots, flats, slingbacks, everything. And he knows; he has a sense. He really has a gift.

For those following the first-daughter race, Kathryn’s signature accessory — her answer to Chiara de Blasio’s flower crown, if you will — is a Kate Spade bag that says “Eat cake for breakfast.”
