I’ve always been the type of person who adheres to the wise saying “Never judge a book by its cover,” because you don’t know what’s inside, literally and metaphorically. However, when it comes to shopping things go into different territory; I always rely on my eyes and intuition whenever I’m on the hunt for new clothes or shoes. Call it a keen fashion sense or just plain instinct, but I know within 10 to 20 seconds whether a pair of shoes and I are destined to be together. However, there are the odd and rare moments when my instincts are off and I experienced just that very recently.
Last weekend I partnered with Town Shoes for a post-fashion week contest and celebration; my winners (Pamela and Meghan) and I attended the retailer’s Step Into Town event at The Toronto Eaton Centre. There we enjoyed a spring trend presentation by the amazing Peter Papapetrou and afterward, headed to the Town Shoes store to partake in some much needed retail therapy. Pamela gravitated to a pair of Ted Baker sneakers that I wasn’t initially fond of, but when she tried them on I changed my mind. These are the type of shoes you have to slip your feet into to appreciate; the graphic floral print, leather trim and high top design is outstanding giving it a feminine look yet remaining edgy and street. Wondering if she bought them? Of course she did! And I might too. Buy online.
