What would life be without shoes like these? Uhm, life as I’ve known it since 1989 until 2014. Cause in 2015, I cannot go without brogues like these anymore!
If I would have to choose between shoes or bags, I would go for bags, guessing that I am more of a bag-a-holic, since they come in so many different styles and have so many surprising compartments and sides to it. But! A little shoe porn does me good as well. From heels to flats and from boots to pumps.
And here I have fallen for the kind of shoe that I wouldn’t normally fall for: brogues. Although I would usually leave this type of shoe up to men, I must admit that I am head over heels with these shoes, in particular the ones that I am wearing in this very post. Have a look with me: they are black, feature a mock croc layer and buckle details. I mean, they are done, finished, complete – tout à fait I would say, cause they have that French allure.
I chose to match the shoes to ripped denim and a bulky, fluffy cardigan to make the ensemble a bit more playful, but I can imagine these shoes with chique pants and a maxi coat as well.
Let me know about your thoughts of shoes like these. Do you like them too or need some time to adjust to this era in which you cannot go without them, cause believe me, you cannot go without them…
