Friend Friday: Shoes
1. What is your go-to pair of shoes?
My go to pair of shoes right now are my Aldo oxfords that I bought back during Fashion Night Out in September. Even though I had to be talked into buying them by my cousin and her best friend, I'm glad that they did. It was love at first sight but I was hesitant because I didn't really want to spend the $50 bucks or however much they were but they indeed worked out for the best.
Of course they don't look like this anymore. They def. look more worn in.
2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions?
Def. color, looks, how they feel, and price. I first have to be attracted to the shoe and think about how the color goes with the rest of my wardrobe. If I can at least thing of a few outfits I can work out with it then it goes on to trying them on. They have to be comfortable even if they are a high heel. I have to be able to wear them all day even if its just parading around in the office. For a more casual shoe it has to be something I can get a lot of wear out of. Price of course because I don't have a large bank account. For shoes like Jeffrey Campbell's I'm willing to drop a $100 to $200 on shoes (if I have the money to do so).
3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?
Black, brown, and nude.
4. When it comes to design shoes what are your favorite brands and why? As you all should know by now, I'm a HUGE fan of Jeffrey Campbell. I love that even with a 5 inch heel they feel so comfortable. The shoes are honestly reasonably priced for the comfort and the make of the shoe. I would much rather save my money up and buy a pair of good heels to ever go back to buying a bunch of cheap shoes.
I'm also loving Prada shoes lately. I was OBESSED with their loafer this past fall season but once again I don't own or have I ever tried on a pair. With Prada I love how timeless their shoes. They just scream classy to me.
5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe?
Drools....there are so many shoes....I would def. buy the designer brands that I stated above (more) Jeffrey Campbells, Prada, and Christian Louboutin. But I would also buy Alexander Wang, Alexnder McQueen, and a whole bunch of other designers as well lol.
Since we are on the topic of shoes I have a question for you all....What is the deal with the Tory Burch flats? I don't understand why every woman has a pair of these flats. I'm sure that they are comfortable but I don't find then flattering. I hate the huge Tory Burch buckle logo on them. Now that it's spring time I've seen more and more woman walking around with them and I feel like...I'm just not getting something?
