Even though some of us don't want to admit it, when we see a hot model or celebrity wearing some sexy heels we start to want them. We start imagining all the cute outfits we could wear with them, how guys will see us in the heels and just start flocking to us, and so on. All those sexy shoes we see those models in are designer shoes and they make it look like a piece of cake to walk in them (which is pretty much false advertising). Now not everyone has money to blow on designer shoes or expensive heels, designer or not, so when that day comes or one day your just like F@#$ it! and buy yourself a pair of shoes that costs the same as 2 months rent, Dawn, the beauty behind Dawn P. Darnell blog, wants you to consider these 3 things.
1. Wearability: By wearability Dawn means can you wear them with almost all your outfits? If you are going to blow 2 months rent on one pair of shoes then you should probably make sure you can wear them with multiple outfits. How terrible would it be if you have these super cute and expensive shoes but they only go with like 2 outfits, so you think "Oh I'll just go buy these pants and this shirt..." but then you realize you no longer have the money cause you actually need to pay rent. Yikes.
2. Style: sometimes we revert back to what we used to love in high school or college. As we get older sometimes it is time to move on to more sophisticated looks. Dawn's second consideration basically is do these sexy, expensive shoes actually look good on you. So what they are hot on Kyle Jenner... you are not Kyle Jenner. Do they look good on YOU?
3. Comfortability: This one should be a given but when it comes to buying heels, we all sometimes have a moment of bravery/stupidity thinking we can bare the pain. When it really comes down to it though, no, no you can't bare the pain and in less then 5 minutes you will be walking like a penguin and no one wants to see that.
Dawn's overall point she is making with these three consideration is; if you are going to buy a really nice pair of heels, make sure you are going to wear then and that you will like wearing them! For more on Dawn's style and other fashion & shopping tips head to her blog, Dawn P Darnell.
