I haven't broken any bones yet after wearing my cheapie Target platform sandals to death (and I've surprisingly survived these loafers) so my usual klutz-magnet self is feeling a bit bold and bad and I'm venturing into untested territory for myself - a platform shoe with a skinny(er) heel.
I've teetered a bit this morning but not yet tottered, so we'll see if I survive the day in these babies. I think it is time I joined the land of the grown-up womens' shoes - meaning sleeker, higher quality and yes, more heel(I've got my eyes on you next, then you)!
To me, being more mature sartorially involves the proper "lady-like" footwear. I obviously have a penchant for bright colors and patterns which are not going away anytime soon, so my daydreams of enrobing myself in sleek designer classics, à la a Kors-clad Rene Russo in The Thomas Crown Affair, will have to wait a bit longer. But lady-like footwear, I can do ankles be willing.
Does this mean my pink Toms or chunky Seychelles will be relegated to the back of my closet? Am I going to be all about the big expensive labels soon? Heck to the no - but I think it is time I start "investing" in some wardrobe pieces that would look good on me regardless if I'm 25, 35 or 45. And I'm a believer that quality and fashion investment does not have to start with a "C" or "LV" - though they are oh so pretty. I figure shoes are probably the easiest way for me to start!
What pieces from your closet do you reach for when you want to look timeless and chic? Are there classic investment pieces that you're looking to add to your wardrobe?
