Friend Friday: All About The Shoes

It’s Friend Friday and we’re talking about Shoes!!  Time to channel our inner Carrie Bradshaws! 🙂

What is your go-to pair of shoes?

Right now it’s my black ballet flats.  They are cute enough to wear out and appropriate to wear to work.  For the past couple of months, my stilettos and I haven’t been getting along too well so it’s the flats for now!

What goes into your shoe buying decisions?

The first question I always ask myself when I’m buying a pair of shoes is: Does it go with at least 3 outfits in my closet?  Last year I did a complete shoe overhaul and I’ve been starting from scratch so I’m building up my basics first!  I’m almost done with that so now I can start shopping for the shoes I just want to have! 🙂

The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?

If you take out my crazy Old Navy flip flop collection, most of my shoes are black.  (I’m telling you I have every single color Old Navy has!  Damn those $1 sales! LOL)

When it comes to designer shoes what are your favorite brands and why?

I honestly don’t have a favorite brand of shoes.  I’m just a sucker for a good looking, totally fun, and incredibly sexy pair of shoes!  Now if there is a type of shoe that I always gravitate to, it’s a a pair of stilettos!  Once I get some foot petals or something, they will be coming back into my life!

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

If I had the money to blow on a pair of designer shoes, it would have to be a pair of Christian Louboutin.  The red sole is classic and if I have the dough to spend on those shoe, best believe everyone will know what I’m wearing when you see me in them!

Let’s talk shoes ladies!  What are your favorite pairs of shoes?

  1. I have one pair of Juicy Couture flipflops that I love and that’s enough for me! As far as luxury shoes, Louboutin and YSL would be my splurges!

      I definitely went a little overboard with the flip flops but it works down here in FL because it’s hot all the time and perfect for the beach! I wouldn’t mind splurging on YSL myself! 🙂

  2. After McQueen I would have to pump for a pair of Louboutins as my dream shoe too! And I’m definitely going to have to take a page out of your book and ask myself if a potential purchase will go with at least three outfits before I buy! (And abate the growth of the ever burgeoning collection!)

      Girl I’m telling you, I die for your shoe collection! 🙂

  3. My go to shoes are flats too but pink ones with a flower on the toes. Flats are my preference as i’m soo tall

      I’m pretty tall too but I can’t pass up a high heel! It’s just that my feet lately makes me regret wearing them too longer later so I have to balance it out!

  4. You can never go wrong with black ballet flats! So versatile, yes?

  5. Very cute post.
    I love that photo of old navy flip flops!


  6. Those glitter Louboutins are fab!

    Ugh, CL is the most fabulous shoe designer EVER!!! 🙂 Love those sparkly ones!! My friend got married in some Jimmy Choo’s that were glittery like the ones in your post! #jealous haha!

      Oooh, Jimmy Choos are fabulous shoes! There were these lime green ones I saw that I just fell in LOVE with!

  8. I was a HUGE fan of flip flops, but I don’t wear them a lot anymore. Once I started wearing flats, heels, and boots all the time, my feet actually hurt in flip flops. Weird, right?


    • MJ

      LOL! Not too weird! All of sudden my feet are not liking high heels. I hope its just a phase!

  9. I love black flats as well! I always wear them out super quick!

    I used to wear a lot of flip flops, but I’ve phased them out over the years in favor of athletic flip flops (Nike, Adidas, etc). I always was so sad when I would quickly wear out the Old Navy-esque flip flops, which I inevitably did.

      These flip flops do have a bad habit of wearing out! I try to make a concious effort to rotate my pairs so they can at least last a little bit longer!
