I realize I will be offending many on this one. I know that it's a huge trend, but I feel like people buy and wear them because they don't know any better. A lot of times I see certain things over and over again, and wonder how that ever became the 'Cool' thing to wear. Let's move on to the next trend please. Uggs are done. We can come up with something better, no?
B. Wedge Flip Flops
Sigh. I feel like I shouldn't even have to write about these. I remember when I was around 6 or 7 seeing ladies walk around (awkwardly) in these. This isn't one of those retro things that was cool back then and has made a huge comeback in the fashion world. Ladies!...this isn't cool. I promise you, there isn't anything you can wear these with to make them a really good looking shoe. It is bad enough that there are the regular flip flops out there on feet. Poor feet. There are designers out there that have made huge strides to bring you good quality fashionable sandals so your beautiful feet wouldn't have to settle for a rubber flip flop...let alone THIS:
I know that they are supposedly good for your feet (especially if you stand all day) and trust me, I stand for at least 9 hours straight, 5 days a week. I would love for my back not to hurt at the end of the day. I see Doctors and Nurses wearing them along with their scrubs..that's fine...but , somewhere somehow, someone crossed the fashion line. It is like an epidemic. how did we let this happen? I would like to start a petition to have them become illegal to wear unless you are in the medical field or work for the government. And now I see little kids wearing them because their parents think it's alright. I mean really, who started THIS?
Now that I have had my time to rant about what should NOT be worn, I would like to post some shoes that I would DEFINITELY wear if I was a women. I know that to some people, there are other, more important things in life than a beautiful expensive shoe. I did not grow up with expensive things, so I do understand. My point is, that as a woman, you have the opportunity to take advantage of these beautiful things. I see it in your eyes when you try them on. It is wonderful, it is fascinating, it is true magic. Thank you. Enjoy.
Remember: You don't always have to spend a lot of money to look great. Inexpensive yet beautiful shoes are out there I promise you. It starts with thinking outside of the box and putting pieces together for a great look that makes you feel amazing.
It is ok to love the expensive luxury pieces but buy the less expensive version. 8 out of 10 times, no one will even notice.
