What Do Your Shoes Say About You?
January 15, 2008
Yesterday we discovered what kind of woman wears which style of jeans, and today we're turning our attention to shoes. Wondering where you fit in? Take a read then vote below.
This girl can do anything, and in stiletto slingbacks to boot. She's a veterinarian, a teacher, a doctor, an astronaut, a beauty queen, and a perpetual bride. She definitely brings home the bacon: she's got that mortgage on the dream house to worry about, sure, but she also has to be able to afford fashionable extras, like these glittery patent Louboutins ($760).
Here in Chicago, we call tall black boots—like these chic Via Spiga platforms —"Trixie Boots." Find their late-'20s owner chatting on her hands-free behind the wheel of her silver Jetta, sipping non-fat half-caf lattes with her besties at Starbucks, or poring over paperwork at her chick-lit-worthy job (think PR, publishing, or marketing). Looking for an after hours Trixie Boot sighting? Scope out the posh upscale eateries of Lincoln Park, the all-night party outposts in the Viagra Triangle, or anywhere guys named Chad hang out.
Find the owner of these strappy gold Jimmy Choos ($615) weeping over her unneeded acceptance speech and silently cursing the ongoing writers strike, her flawless, custom-made gown draped carelessly over the back of the velvet chaise in her elegantly appointed boudoir. No, these stunners (picked to match a certain coveted trophy, perhaps?) may not tread the Red Carpet this awards season, but the thought of them collecting dust in the back of the closet may inspire the owner to turn in another statue-worthy performance.
