Not many of us can boast of a Kardashian shoe collection. I personally don’t have the money or the space to truly indulge my love for shoes in that way. But in keeping with my thoughts about adding options to the items you have, I want to talk more about accessorizing your accessories. Not long ago I wrote about different ways to jazz up your every day bag (see http://www.silynrose.com/?p=1050).
To the untrained eye this may seem like just a row of shoes. But what I see here is opportunity.
Now it’s on to shoes. Shoes are crucial to making an outfit look great. I am a huge fan of pumps (especially pointy toe ones) and have them in multiple colors.
They can be great in their simple form. Check these out. A pair of Steve Madden suede green pumps, a pair of INC Concept pumps, a pair of black Miu Miu pumps, and two pairs of Aldo Stessy pumps, which are quickly becoming my favorites. (I even wrote a review on the Aldo site and asked them to please make the Stessy in orange. We’ll see what happens.) A nice variety wouldn’t you say?
They look fine enough by themselves, but here’s where the accessorizing comes in. Shoe clips. That’s right. Grandma had it right.
Take a closer look. These are the same shoes adorned with shoe clips. Shoe clips are fairly inexpensive. I purchased a pair of four for $11.99 on Ebay.
These little clips have the potential to add even more variety to your closet. I have added a shoe clip to each of these to give you a sense of how it works.
Below I have taken a closer shot and you can see where I have actually put the shoe clip on the side; they don’t have to placed in the front of the shoe.
A word of caution – don’t leave the clips on the shoes after you’ve worn them. You don’t want to risk damaging the shoes at all.
These green suede pumps are dressed up with a simple rhinestone shoe clip.
There you have it. Another great way to accessorize your accessories, and extend the shoe options in your closet.
Try a clip on the side like you see here.
