Oh, and it has nothing involved with drinking or drugs [get your head out of there].
SIGH....OK, I'LL ADMIT IT.....THAT IS THE FIRST STEP RIGHT?
I am addicted to neutral colors!
You may laugh, but it's a difficult affliction, especially in times when you want to kick up an outfit but what looks good on you is a black blazer, black pants, and a white blouse. Black, white, brown, gray, off white, white white white is prominent within your wardrobe and you tell yourself EVERYDAY that it's going to be different.
BUT I've discovered a simple solution [that helps me evade exploring colorful clothing]:
There is NOTHING in the world that can punch a dark outfit up into the HEMISPHERE like a kick-ass pair of statement shoes. In fact, if you have a pair like these Pierre Hardy X Balenciaga beauties, all you really need is a basic outfit. The focus needs to be on the feet people!
Even sneakers can make the outfit! Sure, a pair of Louboutin Pigalles would look just as marvelous but I appreciate the the surprise of colorful Nikes as well.
I'm hoping that I will be able to post some shots of my day-to-day outfits soon so I can prove this theory [I got a brand new camera for my 30th birthday this past Sunday, thanks Mom and Dad <3 ], but until then please enjoy some of my favorite STATEMENT shoes that I've found around the blogosphere after the jump!
...and I promise to try to wear color....sometime.
