i cant get enough of shoes at the moment. working in a shoe shop really doesnt help in the slightest.
docs and creepers will always be two of my favourites. i know theyre about £80+ each, but theyre gonna last and its unlikely they'll go "out of fashion." although, trends arent always there to be followed, make your own trends, break the rules, do what you want and wear whatever you want.
alot of people find creepers really manly and quite ugly but, personally, i think theyre really nice. they stand out, theyre bold and almost make a statement of their own. i know theyre not very feminine but thats where you can mix and match. i guess jeffrey campbells are kinda similar, these especially. even though they're a high heel, they're bulky and the studs makes them more masculine; almost 'punk-like.' they look great with tights, high waisted shorts and a shirt, and theyre definately worth the £100+ price tag. doc martens are always going to be stupidly practical. whatever the weather, they're a bulky shoe and they're gonna keep the water/snow/shit weather out. warm, admitidly not the comfiest, but they are great to slip on with jeans, leggings, shorts etc. the possibilities go on and they last for absolutely ages! if you ask me, they look better when theyre well worn and quite messsy!
the brogues and t-bar shoes, are more dainty and feminine but, you can still mix and match them with things. for example, either of them would look great with grey wooly tights, a check shirt and an american apparel hoodie under a baseball jacket. again there are loads of options! you could wear these with dresses or whatever you feel really, just express yourself in what you wear!
be adventurous and dare to be different.
