I hate playing favorites, but shoes are always the most important part of an outfit, for me. Of course I love putting together all the elements – jewelry, a great coat, a bag – but at the end of the day shoes are what tie the ensemble together! Whether your reach for massive platform booties or a classic pump, your look changes just by virtue of the shoe you choose.

A lot of my recent shoe purchases have come from eBay. Not only is it quick and easy to find exactly what I’m looking for, they have my favorite designer brands at a discounted price. What could be better than that?

Just to show you what I mean, today I’m sharing a collection of my eight unbelievable shoe finds. First on my list is a red pointy toe pump. To me, nothing is more classic than a pair of pumps – they’re a staple that every woman should have in her closet, and these red ones are perfect for adding a pop of color to any look.

Of course I couldn’t settle on just one pair of pumps – so I chose a white pair, too. I know what you’re thinking, “white after Labor Day?” But winter white is one of my favorite trends! Adding a white platform pump to dark denim jeans and a chunky sweater is unpredictable and chic at the same time.

Another shoe must is an every day black bootie. They’re the perfect go-to for any outfit, any occasion. Again, I couldn’t pick just one! I chose an easy to slip on pair with stretchy fabric around the ankles and a chunky heel and a faux suede pair with a stiletto heel. For anyone who is looking for a simple black bootie, or one with a bit more personality, these are two terrific options.

Once you have your basics in place, I’m all about adding a little edge to a simple, every day look. These funky platform with spikes do just that!

Another trend I’ve fallen for is the furry shoe. I know it’s a little risky – okay very risky – but if you keep the rest of your look simple and classic, a bootie with a little fur is an amazing touch.

Lastly, but certainly not least, I’ve chosen a black sequin wedge. Now, they aren’t for the faint of heart, but if you’re looking for a statement shoe – these are your new best friends. I LOVE sequins and find that they’re the ultimate way to spice up an ordinary outfit.

So the next time you’re getting dressed, please remember – shoes are everything. Apologies in advance if I’ve fueled your addiction! But it’s so worth it.
