AviaM - I love all of your picks - although I'd have to switch my version to another colour. I've been interested in those Everlane loafers forever - and like Vivian, don't know anyone who has actually bought them. I love the Rag & Bone slingbacks, but don't even want to know how much they are R&B in Cdn dollars = scary.
All these nude perforated booties are great - but I can't see them with black and navy pants . Jeans, yes, but then that's a casual look. Am I missing an opportunity by not wanting to wear nude with dark pants? Gail - I love yours - what bottoms do you wear them with?
Colette - thanks for your input . We share a similar aesthetic.
I am VERY picky about footwear. They have to be comfortable, but if the style is not up to par, I won't buy . I'm not particularly hard to fit other than not wanting high heels. A 2" block is fine though.
Angie - yes, a more classic, feminine direction is of interest to me. I don't want chunky for work either, nor do I want colourful and kooky. You and I don't have quite the same preferences for shoe styles, but I do like what you've suggested for me. The sad part has been the shoes that Anthro offers - we can't get them in Canada for some odd reason. But Jeffrey Campbell seems to have quite a few styles that I like... The slingback and heeled mule are looking like the best option . LOVE the metallic silver ones!
Bijou - I'm a big Keep it Chic fan, and have been for years. I have those same open too booties as you - in a pewtery-silver colour. I'll be pulling them out in a month or two, hopefully.
