Friend Friday: A Women's Right to Shoes

You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.
- Cher from Clueless

I've spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live?
I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes.
-Carrie from Sex and the City

So I haven't spent $40,000 on shoes and I don't think I ever will, well maybe if I win the lottery.
But I have bought my fair share of shoes. They can help make or break an outfit and it takes a while to find the perfect pair.  But when you find the shoe that's a perfect fit, it will always stay that way.
Which brings us to this weeks Friend Friday questions. It's all about the things we'd be willing to pay $$$ on our feet.

Also check out what other bloggers have to say about shoes. 
1.What is your go-to pair of shoes?
I have to say my flats. Since where I used to work had a harder floor surface, flats worked the best for moving about. But I also have a pair of black wedges that I got from Payless that I wear all the time. They were low enough that I can wear them without my feet aching at the end of the day.

2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions? 
  • Shape of the shoe- Lean more towards round or almond shaped.
  • Heel height- Usually 3 inches or below. But if it’s higher than that, then it needs to have a thick heel and a platform. No heels that can double as a nail.
  • Comfort- Can’t have an super high arch unless there is a lot of padding.
  • Color- I try to get shoes in colors I know that I will wear a lot.
  • Price- The ideal price point is $75 and under.

3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?
I would have to say black. Which is surprising since I don't really own a lot of black clothing but black shoes comprises a majority of my closet. 

4. When it comes to designer shoes what are your favorite brands and why?
Louboutin’s are on the top of my list. Who doesn’t like the red soles? I also really like Mui Mui shoes. They look so fun and whimsical. For more down to earth prices, I really like Steve Madden, BC, Converse and Aldo.

5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe?

It would definitely be a pair of Christian Louboutin’s. I would have one in a more wearable style and another where I would just wear for special occasions. But I would put them on display just so I can admire them everyday.
