Retro Shoes

One thing you will find out about me is that I am into a wide range of styles. From sky high pumps to the crazy strappy boots you saw in my last post, I really believe that when it comes to womens shoes, there should not be any boundaries! I like making a statement and I think it starts at the feet for the most part.

A few months back my friend turned me on to “retro sneakers” which are kind of like funky colored sneakers you may have seen in the 80s. I like to wear these styles when I am out and about and doing a lot of walking. I’ve picked up quite a few nice pairs from Ebay that I think were actually from the 80s. I haven’t really found anywhere that makes NEW sneakers in these type of styles though, so if you know of anything let me know.

I also like the other end of the retro spectrum in wearing older shoes that you may have seen in the 20s to the 50s. I guess you would call this type of shoe more of a vintage look than retro… Some styles I have in my collection really do give off a classy vibe. I managed to pick a couple of nice ones up on the cheap from a place called Ruche. Check out their vintage shoes collection to see what I am talking about.

My Favorite Shoe Styles

Similar to most women who are into fashion, I am obsessed with shoes. Shoes more than anything are what I love… I mean, I love a cute handbag but give me a pair of hot shoes and my confidence just skyrockets. I wanted to share with you guys some of my favorite womens shoes styles. I hope that some of these are new to you guys and that you can find some new styles here that you may have not otherwise heard of before.

Textured Shoes
Okay, one thing I have picked up on from all the big fashion sites out there is that texture is in in a big way. This fall, textured shoes of all shapes and sizes are the rage. I’m not talking just about your traditional snakeskin textures, I mean all kinds of crazy stuff. From buckles, embellishments, cutouts and of course your traditional animal skins. The more the better!

Strappy is Happy!
I am into straps right now in a big way… the more the better. Check out some of these crazy strappy boots I just picked up:

They might not be everyones cup of tea, but I think this look is super hot right now when used in the right situations.
