Sometimes I'm reluctant to buy accessories and I include shoes in that statement. I just find accessories expensive considering they're just supposed to compliment an outfit. They don't keep you warm or cover up any key parts. That being said, I do like belts, jewellery, shoes...I just don't often purchase them myself.
I can also partially contribute that to being a tad picky. When hubby and I were dating I told him I only buy "the perfect shoe". It's out there, folks. You just have to look long and hard. It is perfectly comfortable, perfectly stylish. Anything less and I just won't pay for it which leads me back to my first statement of "I'm reluctant to buy accessories". (That is called circular thinking - neuro exam FYI.)
This summer I bought a pair of red Toms and love them. You've heard of TOMS right? For every pair of shoes you buy, they send a pair to a child in a third world country. And currently they have a few Movember styles. Here are some finds from their website that I'm currently loving (and you can find them here, here, here, and here). Also - people often say to buy them in a half size smaller than you would normally wear because the canvas stretches a bit. I bought mine in a 7.5 when I normally wear an 8 and I have found them to be just right.
