When I wear shoes I either make them blend in with my look like the streetstyle image on the left or make the shoes stand out like the Oak image on the right, subtlety is my look. I don't like the idea of wearing clothes or accessories that seem to all be competing for attention.
If I worked in the fashion industry and I was loaded, I would purchase the above Reed Krakoff shoes and wear them whenever I felt like rocking the rock 'n' roll look...
Edit: I really like the shoes the woman in the streetstyle image is wearing.
Edit II: I did a post about a French Connection long evening dress I wanted for my grad ball, well either lots of people happened to have the same taste as me or I'm just unlucky, the dress has sold out!! :|
