In the celeb style subforum I see a lot of negative comments about shoes. Often I don't see what is so bad about the shoes? I want to know what you DO like.
But I am feeling confused right now about shoe and handbag trends. I seek UNDERSTANDING. Why are booties evil? How do you feel about boyfriend shoes? What would you wear on your feet, with what, and why?
I will start. I am going more preppy this fall/winter and getting more tweedy, warm, soft, colorful things. More blue, brown, and red, and less black. I am phasing out the skinny silhouette because I think I look better in a drapier pant with fuller legs. I do have two pairs of trousers, tapered and black, that I will keep working with, and one pair of perfectly fitting black skinnies that are ok for now.
So in keeping with the preppy, I really want a pair of penny loafers, maybe these, from Frye, not sure of color yet:
The traditional Bass shoes I fear may have dropped in quality.
i can wear these with ankle-length trousers and cuffed skinnies. Prob button shirt, maybe sweater. Tweed blazer or blue walker coat.
Tell me why it sucks, and ...
