Fashion Cents: Tips for Strutting into Spring

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

--By Kimberly Turner

Spring has finally sprung and I am both excited and fearful of what the warm weather will bring (out). I am excited for the spring trends to come off the runway and into my real way. I just do NOT want someone who can NOT walk in their new spring shoes to run smack-dab into me. So to protect myself (and you too), I have come up with three tips for shopping the new spring shoe trends. Now the tips aren’t all about the shoes:

1. Taking care of the feet – NOBODY, not just me, wants to look at ugly feet with peeling nail polish in beautiful sandals. I’m using Chanel’s Particuli√®re this spring thanks to Stephanie…you’ll see.

2. Shopping for the right shoes – just because they are in trend doesn’t mean someone should buy them. They should make sure they fit their style and wardrobe. A cuff sandal on someone who only wears slacks is a waste of a shoe.

3. Walking the right way – If they could only practice walking in their new shoes, and for that matter their old shoes too. It is so NOT sexy to see a woman stumble down the street.
Now watch the video and start your spring off strutting in the right direction. It will make sense!
