Hi, it’s me again… your style loving friend, here to talk about…
That got your attention, am I right? I am a shoe addict. There, I said it, it’s out in the universe now. I’m not ashamed… crazy? Maybe, but not ashamed. My post over at Fredericksburg Parent this week is about open toe booties and my rocky love affair with them, hopefully you will go and check that out.
It’s not only booties that I love, I also have a very large collection of kind of impractical, very high heeled shoes… with spikes! Here’s a few of them.
The spiked heels, they have a special place in my heart. Every time I see them or wear them I fall in love all over again. Those leopard booties?!? They are Sam Edelman and they are my secret lovers. LOL. When I wear them, I always get compliments, they are beautiful shoes. I found them on ThredUP, and if you ever see a pair…buy them immediately. I’m not even joking.
Another fun fact about me? The majority of the shoes in my closet have heels. I don’t usually wear flat shoes. I find that I walk better when I wear heels, I know that’s a little weird…but that’s me, I’m the lady that wears heels to the playground, to the grocery store, to all the places. People don’t recognize me if I’m not in heels… or they ask if I’m ok. I understand, sometimes I do feel feverish and slightly ill if I’m separated from my heels.
So, maybe you are wondering where I buy my shoes. Probably more then half of my shoes have come from ThredUP. Yup, second hand. When you love shoes as much as me… your wallet appreciates it when you shop second hand. These beauties just came into my life in a huge ThredUP box, it was like a gift from heaven, sitting on my doorstep. Most of my other shoes come from DSW, Tjmaxx or Marshalls.
I mean… all the heart eyes!!!! These are Zigi Soho, and they are adorable. I’m going to wear these with a little black dress, like in the picture below, or with a navy or floral dress for Easter!
Do you have a favorite pair of shoes? Do you love heels, or prefer flats? With the weather warming up outside I’m looking forward to breaking out my sandals and open toe booties! Alright, I admit, I’ve been wearing my open toe booties for a while now, even when it’s been cold. I’m just so over the cold weather. In fact, I love open toed booties so much, I wrote a separate post about them over at Fredericksburg Parent, so go on over there and check it out. I know a few people that are skeptical about them, but maybe I can change your mind.
I will write more posts about specific shoe types, like the open toe bootie post at Fredericksburg Parent, the ones I wear the most, etc. So stay tuned for that. Bootie on my stylish friends.
