I am not exactly of the Carrie Bradshaw variety when it comes to shoes, but I do remember the first pair I ever really fell in love with. A white fringed pair of short cowboy boots. I was about 9 I was confident I would wear those things forever (or at least until my feet no longer fit in them). I’m pretty sure I wore them every day for about a year- I mean, they really made every outfit SO much better, as white fringed cowboy boots are wont to do.  As I grew up I never felt that way about a pair of shoes again, being more of a handbag kind of girl.  I never really saw the point in spending over $150 on shoes and kept my collection pretty modest.

Well, now I get it. I acquired my first pair of Louboutins two years ago and while I still think the price is ridiculous and I won’t be collecting them, I can now appreciate a good shoe. When I found a pair of perfect nude Prada peep toe pumps on sale for 50% off this year I nearly threw my body on top of them like I was taking on sniper fire.  My fancy heel collection is limited to that for now, the rest being budget friendly as I ruin the heels SO fast on Boston’s cobblestones and sidewalks.  But I do see rationale in spending more on good leather boots and flats as they last so much longer and are worn so much more often on a daily basis for actual walking.

So here are my picks for a perfect shoe wardrobe. I’m sure I’ve left out some (sneakers for one) but I feel like I could get by with this collection all fall and winter- heels, flats and boots, oh my.

** Side note- a few of these are on sale today- the gold Chloe flats are 25% off (code FRNFAM) as are the glittery Kate Spade’s (everything is 30% off with code FALL13FF)!
