These Boots Were Made For Walking... FBFF

On Friday we all post our responses. It's s a fun, diverse and creative blog community! If you're interested in being a part of this fabulous group, head over to Katy's FBFF page for details!

This week's topic:  SHOES*

*obviously, workout shoes are important to me as well, 
but for this post I am going to stick to fashion shoes. 

1. What is your go-to pair of shoes?
My go-to pairs of shoes are always and will always be heels! The higher the better!! As of late, I've been struttin' in my Brown Michael Kors sandals, my first pair of cheapies from H &M and my JS Dany's!

Here are photos of each pair, respectively:

2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions?
If you have been reading my blog for awhile now you probably know that shoes are items I prefer to splurge on. I just really appreciate the quality of somewhat higher end brands that will last me a significant amount of time rather than just one season. I certainly prefer real leather for my boots! That is usually a must. Also I think true leather looks better and is obviously higher quality. Something I look for in my heels is a built-in platform. Designers are really making many more of these than they used to, and that makes me so happy since it increases the comfort level tenfold! Usually. 
Versatility is also tre importante! Can I wear them with many different outfits?? I don't want to spend over $100 on a pair of shoes that only go with one or two dresses or something. 
And of course- The most important thing is that I like them!! Each day I want to feel good and confident in what I am wearing. Personally, shoes are a significant factor in that. A fabulous pair of high heels or boots make me feel feminine, sexy and gorgeous! 

3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?
Without question, Black

4. When it comes to designer shoes what are your favorite brands and why?
Well, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin are high on my list, but we'll discuss those in the next question. If you were to look in my closet you would see many, many pairs of Jessica Simpson Collection and Michael Kors. Both designers just really fit my personal style to be honest. Also, their heels are comfortable! That is so important to me! I live downtown, so I like to walk places, and in general in my day to day life, I do not like to be distracted by my feet in agony and constantly treating blisters and such. These two designers keep my feet happy and my style strong! 

5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe?
Well, why don't I stop talking and show you:
Christian Louboutin - trailer suede, royal blue, platform, sandal, women's shoes
Christian Louboutin - Tailer - $1295

Michael Kors MICHAEL KORS Espadrille Sandal
Michael Kors - Espadrille Sandal- $895


                                                           Jimmy Choo - Emily - $1395

Christian Louboutin - Larissa - $1495
....Ahhhhh!! I DIE over these fabulous shoes!!! 

Which of these are your favorites??

Any particular shoes or brands designer or not that you personally prefer??

Have a great weekend!!

Have a question or a request? Formspring Me. I promise to answer!


  1. Love all of your wished for shoes, especially the last pair. It sounds like you've struck the right balance. I am looking for some real leather boots, but I know Ill have to pay quite a bit more for them than for a fake leather pair

  2. Ah, my FAVE subject! I love shoes, as you know. And I love your choices above, especially that Emily. Wish I could will those into my closet!

  3. I love shoes. I find is hard to resist a pair when I really like it ... Shoes over clothes, for me!

  4. LOVE the Louboutin Larissa!! I really like Jessica Simpson's shoes, as well as Steve Madden for my everyday wear; I could wear my JS Danys everyday!

  5. Great post Krystle! I'm glad I saw your post otherwise I would have missed out on my favorite Topic! LOL LOL Girrrrlll, I feel you on the CL's. He def had women in mind when he designed these beautiful creations of a shoe!!!! :)

  6. I'm always so surprised how much I like J. Simpson's shoes. Some are over the top, but others I absolutely love!


  7. probably the Michael Kors I would wear. I have to be real careful with high heels. Unfortunately I have bad knees and hips, so they either have to be platform style or extremely comfortable. The most comfortable heels I can wear are Seychelles.

  8. I'm dying over these fabulous picks! Our answers are super similar! There is something about the bright blue Louboutins that make me NEED them!!!

  9. I want those Larissa CL's!!!! Gorgeous!! Jessica Simpson also has really cute shoes too and are always a bargain at my neighborhood Marshalls!

  10. Ooo- I really want those blue CL's! I love your shoes and totally agree that they are an item to splurge on! I have a pair of Via Spiga boots that I got on sale for $200 seven years ago, and they still look fabulous- definitely worth the splurge! :) Although, you definitely have to take care of your things if you go for quality over quantity!

  11. I totally love your shoe style! Your JSDany's are killer! Great post! Cheers!

  12. SO true!! You've GOT to take care of it! I try my hardest to make those investment pieces last!

  13. I feel the SAME way, girl! NEED is totally the word!! :)

  14. Oh, Kendra, that's so sad!! No heels for you?? I don't know what I would do! Haha! I've never tried Seychelles before... I'll have to check those out.

  15. Ya, totally! She does have some crazy ones, but most of them are awesome, the price isn't too crazy and they are really comfortable (I think). :)

  16. Hahaha!! Yea, Charee, you HAD to participate in this week's post!! :) You are THE shoe woman!! I love it! Happy Mother's Day, dear!!

  17. I would wear those blue ones EVERYDAY. No joke.

  18.  Krystle,

    Your shoe choices are hot.  I agree i want a shoe that can be versatile and go with a lot of my outfits. The Michael Kors espadrilles are so fierce. The red Christian Louboutins, o my goodness are they gorgeous!
