what are your shoe style resolutions?
I'm a fickle creature when it comes to fashion. My personal style morphs and changes over time. A few years ago, I was really into punk style. Wore my hair short and spiky, lived in Doc Marten boots, loved lots of black eyeliner.
But now I'd describe my style as sort of "artistically feminine." I'm not into stuff that's too "girlie." 9 times out of 10, shoes with bows give me the heebie-jeebies. I like an eclectic combination of clothes and shoes.
And with that in mind, every season I try to think of what sort of shoe style I want to espouse. Not that I buy an entire new shoe collection to meet that style, but I try to make the shoes that I do buy fit that look.
For example, last year I started really feeling the Victorian/19th century vibe and bought two pairs of boots that have that feel to them (a pair of black ankle boots that lace up the side and a calf-height pair of green ones with buttons down the side that I'm wearing right now as I type). Last summer, I was all about the wedges.
This spring? I'm not quite sure yet what I'll be on the lookout for.
What shoe styles are you particularly looking forward to this coming season?
