Francy Answers: Should you Splurge on This Trend?

Look for Less

Dear Francy, I love the shoe trend you mentioned today and have had my eye on a pair of Alexander Wang Liya Pumps but don't know if they are worth the price? Do you think this shoe trend will stay in style for a while?

Deciding whether or not to invest in a trend is always difficult, especially when it's something your really excited about. I for one try to follow the 80-20 rule when it comes to my closet, 80 percent classics which I know I can mix and match for years with 20 percent trendier items that I might only wear for a season or two.
When it comes to shoes this rule can be somewhat flexible since often time the style and shape of shoes stay in fashion for longer periods of time. My advice would be to get a pair that is reasonably priced and of good quality (heels are painful enough no need to add to the agony by wearing poorly made shoes) and seeing how you like them. Such as the Jeffrey Campbell Blakely Heel. If it turns out you really fall in love with the style you'll be able to splurge on another pair... Win win situation!

Comment below and let me know if you plan to save or splurge on this trend!
