When it comes to fashion, I tend to be a lot like Carrie Bradshaw and spend all of my time and money on shoes. They are by far my favorite accessory. I probably have 50 pairs of shoes in my closet and that number will never stop rising. Either I’m going to have to get rid of some or get a bigger closet, so I think I’ll choose the latter! That being said, whenever I see girls wearing shoes I like, I immediately comment on them and ask where I can find a pair for myself. Such was the case on a recent afternoon after a long hard day at work. I was browsing around for a gift to buy myself to turn my day around when I came across this Fashionista.
When I first saw her, I was quite far away, so I noticed her loose-fitting neutral dress right away. It was light and sheer (perfect for a hot summer day), so she had to wear a neutral-colored slip underneath. I was envious of it because it was so humid out and I was still in my work clothes fit for an air conditioned office. Upon getting closer to her I noticed her fabulous studded booties. I have been on the hunt for a pair for myself, but hadn’t found the perfect ones until I saw them on this Fashionista’s feet. I waited until I was within earshot to tell her how much I adored her booties and to ask her where she got them. I was disappointed though when she told me she wasn’t sure because her mom had gotten them as a gift for her about a year ago. Regardless of not knowing exactly where to find them, I snapped a pic anyway just so that I had a reference for the next time I’m out shopping.
What’s so great about these booties is their ability to add a lot of flair to an outfit. They played up her neutral shift dress perfectly, but would also look great with a more colorful or detailed outfit. Another aspect of these great booties she pointed out to me was their ability to be rolled down in order to expose more studs. This idea of wearing the boots more than one way makes for a versatile wardrobe. But finding such boots has proved nearly impossible for me. If only she told me where she got them my bad day at work would’ve been turned around immediately!
