Hey Fashion Foxes!
My friend DECKS said to me the other day, "Cherie, I went to Nordstrom's shoe salon. It was very fun to look at all the shoes.But I don't understand why certain shoes are more expensive. What gives? Are they MADE better?" I thought about it. The next day I happened to wear a pair of gladiators I picked up at Kohl's for $34.99. If something is trendy, I'll buy cheap and throw out. WELL, seriously, I wore them TWO times. The soles had a hole in them by the end of the day. I walked into DECKS' room to show her. The Answer is YES, cheap shoes are just that: CHEAPLY MADE!!! So now, I am out $34.99. I could have used that towards a better pair. Now, my sweet hubby bought me a pair of BRIAN ATWOOD PUMPS!! They came in the mail the other day and GALS, they are sweet. They are made in Italy and let me tell you, they are made beautifully. The soles are prettier then any shoe I have ever seen. The suede is high quality and the stitching is impeccable. So my advice is this, if you don't mind a trendy shoe wearing out quickly, have fun. If you want something that will last longer, go better name, quality, etc. If your birthday or a holiday is coming up, treat yourself, YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE! ;)
Have a FOXY DAY!
