I am usually very frugal when it comes to shoes and therefore most of my collection is thrifted. However since I've been having thrifted shoe problems lately, I thought I deserved a treat. On our way to see the musical Wicked, a girl friend and I stopped at Urban Outfitters for a quick browse. And that's when I laid eyes on these beauties. The price tag ($69- eeek!) scared me but I knew they had to be mine, with all those colours, they're versatile plus they're closed toed so I can wear them throughout autumn too (when I feel guilty about indulgent purchases, practical justifications make me feel better!) My only concern was that they would be leather or even real snakeskin (which I believe to be cruel and unnecessary with all the imitation fakes these days) but the animal advocate/sales associate ensured we they were 100% man-made material so I can proudly say no snakes were harmed in the wearing of these fabbity-fab shoes! (can you tell I'm in love with them?)
When I don't know what to wear, this orangey-red dress I bought at Loft in San Diego for under $20 is my go-to frock. I've styled it with fishnets, a cape & a bauble necklace and I never grow tired of its simple style and bright hue.

In fact I love these faux snakeskin talon hauts so much I wore them twice this week- a more dressy approach for working with clients and then today for a casual Friday look.
I give you permission to be indulgent and splurge at least once this weekend, you know you deserve it! :)
