#14 - Not a shoe snob

I like designer shoes as much as anyone, but if I find cheap shoes I like, I'm happy to buy and wear them too. The only thing I don't really like about a lot of cheap shoes (aside from the quality, but I don't really expect great quality from a pair of shoes that costs me $15), especially shoes from a number of Australian brands, is that the designs are basically copied from designer shoes. I just can't shop for shoes locally anymore, because I keep seeing Prada/Miu Miu-esque double bows, and while I think designer 'inspired' shoes are fine, a lot of shoe brands seem to be taking it too far.
I love this style of dress - you'll probably see me in it a lot. Anyway, today's shoes are from Forever 21. They're simple but pretty. I should mention that I don't always dress up every day, but I'm not sure if anyone would believe me! Usually I just wear jeans and a T-shirt on weekends - I did yesterday, but I'm trying not to include boring outfits like that my shoe challenge photos. I do have a lot of casual dresses, and the shoe challenge is making me think about wearing clothes I don't wear often too.
I actually have a lot of flats in my shoe collection. I'm starting to feel like my shoe collection doesn't really correspond with my current tastes in shoes. I basically wear flats to and from work and on the weekends, but I have so many fancy, colourful pairs, and they're just not getting worn. I guess that is the aim of the shoe challenge, but as much as I hate to throw anything out, I'll probably end up with a few pairs that I just don't need anymore.


  1. I love your outfit, the colours are so beautiful and the shoes go perfectly with the dress. You've got so many gorgeous dresses!

  2. Thank you! I didn't wear dresses much until last year, but I now seem to have a lot of them, so I'm trying to make use of them all :)

  3. What a lovely dress! I love the colour.
