Today’s post is a new feature I am going to start adding to the blog now and then -YHM}Fashion Find. YHM stands for Your Homebased Mom of course! Since we are always in search of the pretty and delicious here on the blog I thought I’d start sharing a few of my pretty clothing or accessory finds.
You see, I have a confession to make.
I am a shopper.
To be more specific I am a clothes horse (do they still use that term.) I love clothes. I love everything about clothes. I love fabric, color, detail etc. I have worked since I was a junior high school mainly so I could buy clothes!
I’ve loved clothes since I was in the 4th grade and I decided to learn to sew so I could have MORE clothes! It’s no wonder I raised a little fashionista! My love for clothing is why I spent four years in college studying fashion, design, construction, textiles, etc.
So I’ve decided to share my love for clothes and accessories with you once in a while. So today is my first YHM}Fashion Find post! Hope you enjoy it.
Several years ago, when I was in Texas at my niece’s wedding I bought this pair of shoes.
I bought these shoes because I loved everything about them. I loved the color, I loved the buckle, I loved the pointy toe. Did I need a new pair of shoes? No, but I needed these shoes. Did I know what I was going to wear them with? No, but I needed these shoes! So I bought them and I have loved them and worn them to death.
I couldn’t believe how many things they went with. The maroon color is really a neutral. I always struggled with what color shoes to wear with navy – black or brown? I now wear maroon (o.k. I don’t really like that name, maroon, any other suggestions???)
I have worn them so much, in fact, I have had to have the heel redone on them! I wear them with jeans, with dresses, with everything. The color looks great with navy, black, brown, gray and even with green!
So when I was in Target last week and saw this pair of shoes I knew I had to have them.
The Target tag said the color was red but I’m calling it maroon (unless we come up with a better name.) I love the rounded toe, Mary Jane style which is so popular this fall. The little embellishment on the side is so fun. The best part? They are super comfortable thanks to a well cushioned sole and a great heel height (two inches). I wore them all day today and my feet felt great. The other best part? They were only $24.99! They also come in black.
Yes, I know, I have small feet. I usually wear a size 5 1/2 but these shoes only came in whole sizes so I went up to a six. But because of the short, rounded toe box they will look good on any size foot!
Because I know someone is going to ask, no, I don’t wear socks or panty hose but I do wear tights in the winter.
So if you are looking to add a new pair of shoes that go with just about everything into your wardrobe this Fall check out Target!
P.S. – the color in my photo is much truer than the on the Target website.
