Fashion Forward Friday [V.22]: Shoe Bootie Collection

I have been downsizing my shoe collection to shoes that I actually will wear and I purchase based off what will last a longtime. This edition of Fashion Forward Friday showcases my Shoe Bootie Collection. Being that I’ve downsized it is not massive by any means. I’ll be doing a follow-up post sharing my heel collection. Enjoy the slideshow that features brand of the shoe and names for those still currently still online PLUS check out the ‘Shoe Bootie Wishlist’ below as well.

Fashion Forward Friday [V.13] — Styling Birkenstocks

There is no denying that history repeats itself and fashion does the same. I remember being 10 years old and having a pair of double strapped sandals and going to South of the Border with my grandparents and taking a candid shot. Now here it is 12 years later and that oh so familiar sandal is everywhere and the latest trend for Spring/Summer 2014. The shoe, commonly known as the Birkenstock is the most popular sandal of the season and can range anywhere from $89.95 – $130. The Birkenstock sandals come in a variety of styles, but I wanted to focus on the double strap, the Arizona, which is the most popular of all.

Here are 10 cheaper/inspired alternatives that I found:

Target: Sam & Libby Steve Madden: Boundr-S Platform Steve Madden: Boniella Platform River Island: Gold Metallic Double Stap Mule River Island: Leopard Print Double Strap Skechers: Relaxed Fit Double-Strap Walmart: Faded Glory LuLu's: Soda Topshop: Heights Double-Strap Topshop: Fang Double-Strap
