Now to show you my whole collection would take some time, so instead I decided to show off my 5 favorite pairs. Now let me say that these aren't the five pairs I wear most often, but they are my five prize wins that really speak to me the most. After taking the pictures and getting them ready to post I started to notice that my favorite shoes say a lot about my personal style too.
So my first fav pair is one that I bought a couple years ago and it is almost time to break these out again. I wear these in the spring with a pair of dark wash trouser cut jeans and a white button up on Casual Fridays at work. I love the bright white trim, graphic pattern and shiny sturdy hardware. This is true for me at home too. I like a good contrast between my trim and wall color. I tend to go for graphic prints over florals. And any "hardware" (knobs, fixtures, or faucets) needs to be sturdy and shiny!
This pair is also another variation on a lot of the things I love from the shoe above. I wear these to work with black or gray slacks. I adore the shiny patent leather and the menswear vibe of the tweed fabric. The chunky heel is great too - it is substantial but has a great line and curve to it! And they do have some great hardware going on! I tend to gravitate towards furniture that has the same principals - dark, substantial pieces with a little curve!
This picture turned out a little fuzzy, but I love these faux snakeskin flats I got at Target. Note that this is what I consider a flat. (As a shorty I need to have some height going on at all times.) Again - these feature a sturdy tapered wedge which is both functional and fashionable. And while they are a little more casual - they still have a dressy vibe! I like that in my furniture and tend to mix pieces that aren't too casual but aren't too formal!
This is my current fav dressy pair, and are the ones I wore to the cocktail party at Blissdom! I love the shiny metallic accents and the fact that the faux snakeskin print (again) adds some texture. I definitely tend to gravitate towards shiny accessories around the house (remember my blinged out Christmas tree) and this silvery gunmetal color is one of my new current favorite accents.
So there you have it! My five favorite pairs of shoes. What do you think? Do you think that your style in clothing and shoes is reflected in your style that you use in your home? I am curious to see if that is just me. Oh and head on over to Beth's to check out all the other great shoes!!
