Fashion Files : Streets VS Brands 1- Blingy Shoes

By Aakriti

You know you're a certified shoe addict 
if you think there is always room for one more pair .

Hey girls, 
here is my this week's post on the new feature on PEL.
Street vs. Brands. 
And this week, it’s Blingy SHOES !!

When it comes to dressing up , we all pay a minute to decide what shoes will match with the outfit we're wearing. Correct styling of the right type of shoes makes a big impact on one's over all dressing. I present to you 2 categories of the most popular style of shoes for summer.
Every girl must have a pair of branded and lots of pairs of street shoes which she can match with almost whatever she's wearing.

The first category is STREET SMART

We all know how street shopping excites us for the amount of things one can purchase in a small amount. It's all about QUANTITY in this category.

So, these are my pair of "Thongs" inspired by the greek style which i managed to have picked from a local street store in Sector 35 Chandigarh.

The best part about thongs is that they are very summerish , stylish and can be styled with both western and indian wear. They come in various colours , I picked white because not only is it my favourite colour but matches with almost everything and its a cool colour for summers.
Thongs are pure flats very comfy , have a rubber soul which prevents ones from slipping and easy to pull over one's feet.
One can walk miles and still not feel tired. These are one pair of shoes I'd suggest can be also worn to a party with a nice dress or skirt .

So here comes the best part , since they've been picked from the street they costed me very less from what i saw in good stores or malls !

PRICE :- 650 INR

The second category - BRAND BRAG

Every girls wants to be a proud owner of if not many then atleast one designer pair of shoes. It's all about QUALITY in the category.

so here's my pair of STEVE MADDEN's blingy loafers. Steve Madden is a very well renowned US designer brand for mainly shoes but also other accessories like bags etc.

so what does one do when you have a bad feet day or your nail paint's chipped off ? you cover them with loafers like such !
Bling is the new zing for us girls , which is why these are my favourite pair of shoes in my wardrobe. With all the chunky beads , blinky gems and golden spikes it makes it this nude coloured base an eye stopper !!
They can be only paired with western wear mostly pants, jeans or shorts and matches almost everything because of its neutral colour.

If you walk alot this is what you need for routine since they are purely flats !
I picked them up from the Steve Madden store at Elante Mall in Chandigarh .
And,yes girls you'll have to shell out a big amount to purchase them but they are totally WORTH IT !!

Price :- 5999 INR
