9 Chic Shoe Rules

Let's get back to Shoes. We haven't talked about them recently! I just saw this article with the above title and thought I'd share. It even says (and I believe this to be a fact obviously) that when you are blue, buying a new pair is an instant mood lifter. Now for the rules...which after my shoe challenge I was much more apt to take into consideration...

(awesomely fierce CL's)

1. Don't be hobbled by discomfort. It's ungraceful to walk around in painful shoes and let's be honest, you end up sitting on your butt all day in your cube avoiding any movement.

2. Dare to wear brights. If your clothes are more neutral, spice them up with your shoes! Then again, if the opposite is true, stick to more neutral shoes.

3. Wear what's appropriate. Match your shoes to the outfit-dressy for dressy, casual for casual.

4. Going outdoors? Say no to stilletos. Don't you hate it when your heel gets stuck in the grass!? Easiest way to prevent that is to avoid stilletos on your golf outting.

5. Make a statement. Depending on the look, complete it down to your feet...

6. Va-va-voom shoes have their place. So probably not at the office, unless you want to appear in a texts-from-9-to-5 post.

7. Pair sky-high shoes with tame hemlines. Short dress + high heels = danger of looking like Pretty Woman.

8. Wear flats with properly hemmed clothes. I sooooo broke this rule on Monday (SHHHHHHHHHH!) and my pants dragged past my flats...which left me feeling like a frumpy midget.

9. Think about balance. Wear strappy with delicate clothes, wear chunky with bold clothes...and I think it also must be said to wear shoes you can WALK in! You'll look ridiculous (you know it, they know it) if you attempt the unwalkable.
