shoes, shoes, shoes. i can’t get enough shoes, and i know you feel me on this! sadly, my closet space (and budget) dictate how large my collection can grow, but it seems like each season, i’ll buy 2 or 3 new pairs to rotate in to my closet. i’m not terribly driven by trends, and you won’t find me jumping on any bandwagon, preferring to keep it classic, so i can get more than one season out of them. being a victim to my shoes isn’t for me – in other words, they need to look great, but not kill my feet. stylish and comfy is the way to go for these feet! this season i added these three beauties to my closet. yes, they are all black, is that boring to you? i always go for the black choice in mostly everything, so it’s definitely a hallmark of my personal style.
tory burch kendrick loafers (sold out): these were a bit of a splurge for me, and they are already well worth it, since i wear them a few times a week to meetings or lunch. they are called a driving loafer, but i have no idea if this means you’re just supposed to drive in them? if that’s in your budget, cool, but it’s not in mine! they are pretty much like wearing slippers, beyond soft and comfy – i pair them with leggings, a cozy cape or sweater, and a great bag.
zara ankle boots: by far, my fave place to buy shoes is zara. you can always find the latest, at a great price. these have a chunky, stacked heel, so they are on-trend and comfy. black suede shows wear quickly, and especially in vancouver where it rains all winter, probably not the most reasonable choice, but so be it… they’re cool!
zara d’orsay kitten heels: i don’t know how i feel about kitten heels. they aren’t terribly flattering to the calf, but they give you that extra inch of height, so they’re that happy medium? the tricky thing about d’orsay shoes is that they have to fit like a glove so the back doesn’t slip, causing the entire shoe to come off as you walk (d’orsay is the style of the shoe where the sides and top are cut out, revealing the arch of the foot, in case you were wondering). these look really awesome with slouchy pants, as i wore here.
