Fashion Friday!

Kitten heels are back

Remember when kitten heels were the thing, then the industry came out with the sky high 5 and 6 inch heels that hardly anyone could walk in but we bought them anyways, just to look “Fashion Forward”?  Some of them had platform bases that were supposed to help you feel like the heel was not so high, but you were still walking around feeling like a female “Herman the Monster”, at least I was.  Well, the industry is going away from those 5 and 6 inch heels.  I guess they realized that women really couldn’t walk in them as much as we tried.

The return of the kitten heels.  The kitten heels are back in style now and some of us are so happy.  Not that we won’t still wear some of the 4 inch (not 5 or 6 inch) heels, but to know that the kitten heel is stylish again is so exciting.  Some of us would like to go out one evening and not have to hurry and get to our seat to rest our feet. With a kitten heel, walking and standing for a long time won’t be a problem and you may not have to bring an extra pair of shoes to put on when you get back to the car (you know you do it).

There are many types of kitten heels.  They come in boots, sandals, pumps and mules.  Embrace the kitten heel again along with your 4 inch heels.  you’ll remember how much you liked them.

Embellish This!

Embellished shoes have been a big trend this summer.  You can’t go anywhere without seeing fur, pearls, embroidery, yarn, emoji’s, etc. on shoes of all types.  It doesn’t matter if the shoe is flat or high heeled, tennis shoes or mules.  You can find embellished ones.

This is a fun trend worn the right way.  Don’t go overboard with the embellishments.  If you have embellishments on your shoes, one other small item is OK, but let that do.  If you add embellishments in too many other places it could be too much.  You don’t want the items to overpower you.  You want them to enhance your look.

Most of these shoes come in pretty bright colors, and some in pastels.  There is something for everyone.  If you like lots of embellishments you can find it.  If you like something simpler, you can find it.

Some of the designer styles are expensive, but you can always find the lesser expensive ones that look similar for a fraction of the price. It all depends on your budget.

As I’ve gotten older, I still love my shoes, but comfort is very important to me as well as style.  I look for both.  They can be the best looking shoes, but If I can’t walk in them or if they hurt my feet just walking around in the store, I won’t buy them no matter how nice they look.  In the past I may have 😦

Because I like a little bit of bling and I’m more into tennis shoes these days, i was excited to find the two together.  Comfort, style and bling…….yes!

Fashion Fridays!

What woman can say she has too many pairs of shoes?  Not me for sure.  This fall one of the popular shoe styles will be loafers.  Flat, high heels, and loafer mules.  I’ve noticed that there are a lot of retro styles this season as well.  Take a look below and search for your favorite pair.
