I need to go shoe shopping

Goodness gracious, I need shoes! Now that spring has arrived and over-the-knee boots are practically out, birkenstocks are last summer, and moccasins seem dull (at least to me,) I turn to flats and sandals as they never go out of style. Easier said than done though. I went to my favorite shoe store this past weekend (both locations) and couldn't find a single pair that suited my fancy. Oh dear. Maybe, I should blame my shopping skills. Honestly, I am not a very good shopper. I feel as though my eyes automatically look past the bargains that should be staring me right in the face and are prone to the most expensive things in the store. It's a problem.
Anyway, back to the point. Ah yes. Shoes! I am thinking flats. I am thinking fun, colorful, practical. I am thinking...


ChloƩ Capretto leather ballerina flats


Miu Miu Woven metallic-leather sandals


Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal-skull canvas ballerina flats


Mymu Ionian canvas espadrilles


Belle by Sigerson Morrison Charm-embellished suede flats


(Only in my dreams...sigh)
Maison Martin Margiela Digital-print suede boots


See by ChloƩ Tassel-detail leather moccasins

Well, even though I picked out a variety and know that I probably won't own any single pair of the above selected, it helps me know what I am looking for. By picking things out online, or cutting things out of a magazine - it helps me find my personal style, and where I am coming from.
Did you realize that a lot of this post is "hypocritical." I said flats and sandals, and there is a pair of boots, and moccasins, plus I almost a pair of bruges (but they count as flats.) I said colorful, and depending on your view, one could say this is a rather colorful collection (but not so much in my head.) I certainly didn't think I would be having any black flats in this post, but there come two pairs I was instantly drawn to. Last but not least, I tried to find wallet friendly flats, but instead came out with a bucket load of various not so friendly priced guys.
Oh well, I simply think that this post has helped me figure out some of my tastes and favorite "flavors." I suggest you do the same when in doubt of what you want or what you are looking for. But have no fear, flats are on their way...once I go shopping that is. I wish I could say, "cant wait to get these (above pairs) in the mail and blog about them!" Sincere apologies.
Hope everyone is enjoying their Spring.

p.s. My computer is acting so strange right now. Do excuse the inconsistency of the format.
