How to start a shoe collection. The number one question I get asked when people walk into my room is how I have so many shoes. In this post I will be talking about a couple of points you need to think about when starting your own shoe collection! Please note that I will be talking about starting a wearable shoe collection (a collection of shoes you actually plan on wearing that are not there for purposes of display or reselling).   Don’t Fall for The Hype Just because a  shoe trend is “hot and popping” at any given point…

Skinny jeans! They arrived onto the fashion scene with a huge bang back around 2007. I will admit, I was super confused when they first arrived. I didn’t understand why anybody would wear a pair of jeans that hugged your entire leg like that. And where were your boots supposed to go? Over the jean? And were they only for skinny people?

Black Friday! It is the world’s most insane and biggest sales promotion and it has now been adopted in South Africa. Black Friday started out in the US in the early 2000s and has always been celebrated  on the fourth Friday of November (the day after Thanksgiving Day).

Utilitarian: designed to be practical rather than attractive (Oxford Dictionary). The utilitarian trend has hit the streets and boy is it hard to resist. As Oxford dictionary so simply puts it, the utilitarian fashion trend is designed to provide women with practical, versatile and functional clothing. The designers have also made sure their clothes are attractive, eye-striking and alluring though, so not to worry. The utilitarian trend is signified by a military or safari feel, multiple pockets, arbitrary zippers, large bulky straps and buckles are here and I sure hope they are here to stay!
