In my post SALES: HOW TO SHOP SMARTER I mention that January is a great time to shop sales at your favorite stores (especially online). What I love about this time of year, is that you can buy some key summer must-haves at affordable prices. Now I’m not saying go out and shop crazy, remember just because it’s a great deal doesn’t mean you have to buy it. The perfect time to shop for summer shoes is NOW.
take inventory of your closet first.
I always like to update my shoes every season. Sale time is probably the smartest time for you to purchase a designer shoe. Much of my designer shoe collection have been purchased from past sales. I recently ordered online an espadrille sandal from SSENSE. I spotted it a few months ago, and thought to myself that if it goes on sale I will buy. A quality shoe is dependable and will last longer. When you have knowledge about materials and how a shoe is manufactured, you are able to spot a quality made shoe from anywhere, at any price point. Which just makes you a smart shopper. That is what I hope you take away from my blog. I don’t care what the label says, I care how the item is made.
oops! got a little off topic…
So before I go online or head to my favorite shop I check my spring/summer shoes and see what I’m missing or what needs updating. Taking inventory is KEY because when you know what you already own, you are not going to go out and buy the same pair again. Put your hard earn money towards a different style. Now for example, if you love wearing gladiator sandals and that’s a staple in your warm weather wardrobe, BUY THEM. I’m just saying don’t keep purchasing the same black pair. Switch it up! Expand your shoe collection.
7 days of style tip: when you see what you own, you will wear them. when you transition your closet each season, bring out the shoes. look them over. make them visible in your closet.
