Yes the sort that are characterized by James Dean leaning against his slick car wielding a cigarette in that cool off handed way he practically branded. And well, no actually, not that sort at all. I love a glass of wine as much as the next girl, but my real vice? Shoes! With more pairs than I’d really care to mention, I really do have a problem. However, I can’t think of a better way to up the ante on any given outfit. Give me cut off jean shorts, rolled up Gap chinos, or a sequin encrusted skirt. Each is in and of itself quite sartorial on its own, but when paired with some fantastic shoes, you’ve got a game changer of an outfit. This ladies, is the BEST way to update what may feel like an otherwise lack luster get up. I’ve seen some incredible shoes this season in all price ranges. Plus, head to the stores now for some killer end of season sales. I’ve snagged a pair of gold glitter pumps from Madewell and some neon orange patent leather pumps with satin toes from J. Crew to name a few. Let me tell you, while conceptually they may seem ridiculous, in practice those gold pumps made my Uniqlo jeans and Bailey 44 striped t-shirt look infinitely more amazing than I had ever imagined. Granted, I want the Isabel Marant sneakers that are so ugly they’re awesome, but I’m not shelling out for the real ones just yet, and while the Target knock-offs look pretty damn good, they just didn’t quite make my feet happy in the fit department.
Below are some links to a few fun items to add to your wardrobe, although I’d wait on those J. Crew sequin shoes to go on sale. I’ve also added some pictures of a few of my favorite shoes this season. What do you guys think?
