It’s that time of Month… Rent or New Shoes?

Near the first of every month we like to hypothetically ask ourselves, “Hmmm what if we could buy a new fabulous pair of shoes instead of pay our rent or mortgage payment?”

This idea is in reference to Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe obsession and her ability to fill up her closet full of designer heels instead of save. So ask yourself the question and have fun with it… What if you could pick the shoes?

Well if you can-want-dream-will purchase a pricey pair, here are Fashion Illuminati’s top picks of dream shoes this month:



Ahhh yes lets start with Loubies! These nude leather booties called Instrumenta are made by Christian Louboutin and are priced at $1,145. They are a perfect addition to any girls shoe collection and will transition nicely from Fall to Winter and even Spring 2014. They are a staple shoe to own and maybe even… dare we say it? An investment… sure that’s what we will call them!



These Versace Star Studded pumps are show-stoppers!! Versace, Versace, Versace… somebody stop me! Priced at $1,125 you can bank on the fact that these limited edition heels will sell-out in your size fast! Rent versus New Pair of sexy stilettos is a tough game to play!



These Brian Atwood black suede with gold embellished chain detail were last seen on Beyonce after the 2013 VMA’s. Brian Atwood has a huge celebrity following and he is known for saying, “You are not what you eat, it’s all about what is on your feet!” The Sybil pump shown above retails for $1,495, so if you skipped dinner for a month these would be a good buy!
