It’s time to have a little fashion fun! I’m a shoe girl. No doubt about it. I find them completely addictive and I have quite the collection to prove it. Not exactly sure what draws me in but I can quickly be mesmerized by high fashion offerings. You know, those shoes that make you wonder how in the world anyone could ever stand in them without wobbling, much less walk in a reasonable manner. The more outrageous the better. Simply put…shoes are fun!
Several weeks ago, Keri sent me a link to sign up for daily Shop It To Me Sales Alerts. The link offers the chance to pick from various shops/designers and receive daily notices on their reduced items. Being a lover of all things fashion related, I jumped on it. Nothing like a little fashion escape to make every day a little brighter. Stores and websites like Piper Lime, Blue Fly, Urban Outfitters, Banana Republic, J Crew, and many more were on the list. Even high-end designers were an option but I thought it best to stay within the boundaries of my budget and selected those that are more reasonably priced. No need to be tempted by things I could never afford.
One of my favorite shoe gurus is Steve Madden…always hip and fun. Today, I thought I would share a few of my Steve Madden faves from a recent sale alert. Note: my absolute-favorite-think-I-might-just-have-to-buy-them pair are the last two…C-U-T-E!!!
Notice there is a commonality among the shoes…they all are rather “chunky”. That would be the style I am most drawn to. Guess it comes from having “chunky” Fred Flintstone feet. The additional umph of a hefty shoe helps dwarf…ok, only slightly minimize…my ginormous feet. One lesson I learned a long time ago, dress for your body type…or in this case, for your foot type??? Let’s just say, I do everything I can to downplay my abnormally ugly, pudgy appendages. Way cool shoes definitely help!
By the way, while I have a closet full of shoes (I quit counting when I crossed into triple digits) I tend to wear the same few pair over and over. When you work at an auto restoration establishment, you get more than your share of crazy stares when you wear your “fun” shoes to work. So I just go for functional. But you can bet I pull out the good-time-girl shoes when going out.
Hmmm, now that didn’t sound exactly right. I’m thinking I just labeled myself something not-so-nice…
