It’s time for the big question: handbags or shoes?! As a woman of a certain age (the age where you have no money) I think there must always be a choice where to spend your money when accessorizing.
I have a certain predictability when it comes to footwear. ‘Chunky boots go with everything’ has become somewhat my mantra. So it may surprise you that I would spend what little money I have on shoes rather than handbags – hands-down.
I think at the end of the day it comes down to what kind of person you are – prepared for everything or happy just to wing it with a few cards stuffed in your phone holder and whatever change and lip balm will fit in your pocket. I definitely belong to this latter category.
This isn’t to say I don’t like being prepared however. If I ever got a tattoo it would probably say ‘I love spreadsheets’. But in all honesty if I left the house with multiple objects it would be pretty much inevitable that I would lose SOMETHING before I returned home. Expensive handbags are not always worth the risk.
But shoes. Ah, beautiful shoes. That item of clothing that will always fit, whether you’re feeling bloated or sad – these pretty little items on your feet should always make you smile!
Metallic shoes were everywhere during fashion week and can give any outfit an instant cool factor. Nineties styles are having a comeback so when purchasing a new pair of heels think ‘what would Carrie say?’ a la Sex and the City. And yes – chunky boots will go with everything.
