So the latest trend in shoes is bright patent finishes. The patent look has been popular for spring shoes for a couple of years but the added touch this year which gives it more eye popping appeal is the bright colors. I love this trend and just picked up a pair of turquoise stiletto heels. I wore them out with my girlfriends one night and received a ton of compliments and then I realized I didn’t really have another occasion to wear them. Sure, I’ll find a couple other occasions but I just dumped a ton of money on what basically amounts to a handful of compliments from my friends who don’t need to be impressed, they already like me.
I saw and I would love to add a flowered pair of shoes to my collection. So yes, I have a serious shoe problem BUT I do think I took something away from the turquoise shoe experience. I am going to purchase my shoes more wisely and cost effectively. I could have bought the turquoise heels somewhere else for about $30 and that would have been a reasonable amount to pay for a pair of shoes that will only be cool for one season.
The other pairs I want, I think I’m going to look for sales on the designer ones (because they just fit so much better) or I’ll keep my eyes out for deals at discount stores. But, no matter what, I’ll continue following the shoe trends like the slave to fashion I am.
