What Would You Spend More On? Flats vs Heels

Well it has been quite a while hasn't it!

However, I'm back and plan on blogging much more regularly.

Recently I have fallen head over heels - well not exactly heels - in love with Mo, a super cute flat sandal from Claudia Ciuti. Bows get me every time!

As a little preface, I'm a true high heel lover and I firmly believe in the policy that higher is always better. But in real life things just don't work out that way because its impossible to wear 4 inchers all the time! Long ago I began looking for more practical footwear options and I've found a plethora of fabulous ballet flats - but then winter turned to summer and once again I need some sensible, yet summery options. I'm not a big fan of flip-flops and I wanted something a bit dressier...

I believe Mo is the answer! However, there is one outstanding problem... Mo is a little pricey for a girl on a budget!

I know I would get much more wear out of this shoe than almost all of my sky-high heels because they are so practical, but somewhere in my silly mind I am much more inclined to spend a lot on the ultimate, sexy pair of heels than a pair of sandal flats.

What do you think? Would you spend more on a practical and cute pair of flats that you would get a ton of wear out of or a fun, flawless high heel that you could only wear a few times a month?

I agree completely agree about "MO"!! My best friend has her and I am so jealous! She looks cute online or in a box, but when you put her on she is spectacular. You will definitely get your moneys worth with her.

I think you really gotta have some cute feet to wear Mo. The shoe is very stylish and elegant and I believe that your feet would have to follow suit. A nice tan and thin ankle would help as well. I think you would feel like you got more out of spending more for Heels. No matter how many bows and straps you place on a flat, a high heels will always feel more elegant and that feeling will translate into money well spent.

heels!! it feels a waste to spend so much on flats. the soles wear out quicker and they tend to get destroyed much quicker because of the frequency of use. i love my flats but i will always spend more on my heels

I say you need to count how many heels you have in your closet and how many flats you have. Then you should figure an estimated percent of time you spend in both. Then figure out the percent of shoes that you own that are flats and for heels. Figure out which ones you really need more.

You can never spend too much on a quality heel. Quality = comfort in my book.

I blog about this kind of stuff, too. Good luck in the decision-making.

Every woman's handbag is a lost cambridge satchel us and found department in itself. It is strange, but things actually disappear there, as by magic hermes handbags outlet. They finally reappear on the surface after three or four investigations and complete pell-mell of the contents. Every bus driver is fata touch. It is that individual touch that fills the bag. Some item is pretty sure to roll out the moment the hermes birkin for sale bag is opened.

Nike is as much about history as it is about innovation. That said,Nike free 3.0 V5 the brand is paying tribute to what is arguably the most recognizable Nike running shoe ever – the red-Swoosh Cortez. This upcoming release is an exact replica of the first version that showed up in stores in 1972, with the zig-zag edges, back pull-tab, rubber toe-cap, foam spongy tongue, and minimal leather upper, Nike free 5.0 women but don’t confuse these for the “Forrest Gump” shoes because these are, quite frankly, entirely different. Gump’s kicks were the ’77 version that didn’t feature the pull-tab and had a more padded sole, but the iconic white/red/blue colorway is what’s been a visual anchor for this history-making Running shoe. Grab the Cortez retro on September 24th at NikeLab retailers worldwide and online on September 24th.

I will just choose sneakers. This will be a perfect outfit with my friends this coming Saturday. Our crush will play the football game with his team in the school, so I will watch him and wear my favorite football t shirt. Skinny jeans and white sneakers will complete my football shirt outfit.
