What A Girl Wants...

I have been thinking a lot recently about keeping a really great versatile pair of heels in my car (or office) - so that where ever I go, I can get dressed up in a jiffy if need be. You know those times, when you unexpectedly end up going to an event where you want to look extra cute - but your comfy flats just aren't cutting it.

So this go-to pair would have to be really wearable, with possibilities to match almost any outfit and provide elegance for a fairly formal function or an extra pop on a blah errand-running ensemble.

I still haven't really found a perfect pair - but I am considering a few different criteria. These shoes must be a neutral color to go with anything. It seems to me that a nude, metallic, grey, or bold color (like bright green or yellow!) would be the best choices. I feel like a classic shape would be best - maybe a nice peep-toe pump? Although this could limit things if you were in dire need of a pedi... hmm... I guess I'll just have to make sure I keep my tootsies in good shape ;) The shoes would also have to be made of a fairly wearable material - no satin or suede in case there is inclimate weather. The heel would have to not be too TOO high, in case a bit a walking was involved.

So I have hunted down the best styles and this is what I've come up with:

Boutique 9 Unika, $149.99,

Paris Hilton (I KNOW!) Catalina, $78.88,

L.A.M.B. Daran, $334.99,

Marciano Lila, $194.99,

Boutique 9 Narcissa 4, $135.00, piperlime

Oh Deer Blair, $139.99,

Dolce Vita Madison, $150.00, shopbop

Forever 21 Jelena, $19.80,

L.A.M.B. Kochi (it's a gorgeous purple - hard to tell in the picture), $319.99,

Which ones are your favorites? Do you have any other suggestions?
