Sooo, I muse about fashion kind of a lot. And one thing I wanted to be able to do here on Diva-Fierce was share some of those musings with you. Having just relieved myself of one of my holiday-present-gift-cards via the purchase of a new (totally, completely, critically necessary!) pair of shoes in a lovely apple red, it occurred to me how often I pair colored shoes with a neutral outfit. It's such a chic, but oh so easy, look. Neutrals are a simple, carefree fashion device...I've got 'em, you've got 'em. They mix, they blend, they complement each other. But sometimes, they just need a pop. And that's where the colored shoes come in. Not only is it a great excuse to buy all different colors of fantasmic shoes, it's a great way to wear colors you adore but which you don't want near your face. Plus, it's always just enough color, never too much. I'm the kind of stylish girl who can't handle just one, single contrast color. You can't believe how often I've tried...literally, talked to myself in front of a mirror trying to convince myself that I DON'T need that second bit of color. Never works. Myself will not cave; I MUST have two. :). As statement rings are easily my fav piece of jewelry, I tend to add a statement ring in a similar (not necessarily matching) color to my shoes. I'll use red with burgundy, sky blue with royal, or a multi-tone ring that goes with a number of shades. This makes myself content :) and I can stop frightening my mirror with the Gollum-like dialogue. If you're a bracelet or necklace girl, you can easily use those instead of rings. Scarves def get it done here as well. I hope you give this look a try (again) sometime :) Happy styling!
