Fashion Diary: The Story Behind My Shoes #2

"Shoes Are Like Ice Cream. There's Always Room For More"
I’ve had these babies for years. I bought them for my 8th grade formal (which was six years ago..) One day I was searching through a magazine and saw an ad for White House Black Market. The advertisement featured a model wearing a black, white, and red floral printed dress paired with fish nets, and black and white heeled oxford booties. I just fell in love with the contrast of a chic dress paired with the booties. I knew that’s the shoe that I envisioned myself wearing. That’s right, I’m the person that buys my shoes first AND THEN my outfit… (not gonna lie, that will probably be the case for my wedding dress too)
So, one night I was in Target browsing and stumbled upon these babies. They weren’t black and white, but I still adored the black patent leather. At that point, I decided I want to buy a black and white dress to go with them. However I ended up buying the complete opposite...a magenta sequin dress.
Not gonna lie, the shoes were a little tight, but after breaking them in they weren’t bad for the dinner/dance. Though everyone else took off their shoes to dance, I refused to take mine off. My reasoning is, your shoes complete the outfit!
To this day I still wear these booties, those not as much as I used to. I find myself pairing them with jeans and dressy blouse. They are a pain though since the laces come untied easily. I would not recommend them for walking a great distance.
