Being a fashionista, I’ve never forgotten my first big purchase. It was back in the early 90s when I purchased a pair of red patent Dr Martens. I put them on layaway at a local boutique store in Victoria. Each weekend I would work at my mom’s design studio and make $25, which would then go straight to the boutique to keep my dream shoes set aside. It took 5 weeks before I went home with my $135 Dr Martens, a pretty big purchase for being in grade 7!
That was the beginning of an ongoing shoe addiction. I always say one of the easiest ways to keep your wardrobe fresh and up to date is to ensure you have an updated style of shoe each season.
Here we are 30 years later and I just purchased my second ‘ever’ pair of red shoes, my first pair of Chanel’s. When I first saw them they immediately reminded me of where it all started (the red shoe!) This season there are so many great styles that can be incorporated into your wardrobe, and remember not every trend is for everyone, so thankfully with so many choices there is bound to be one for you! To make it easier, before you hit the stores scroll down and check out the must-have styles and see what could be added to your personal style, to keep your looks up to date.
