i bought these shoes at target the other day for $11 and didn't really try them on (i was wearing boots and mismatched socks and just too lazy to remove said boots and mismatched socks) so i figured $11 was a steal and they might be fun for valentine's day. so purchase i did! and while i do appreciate a good cheap thrill, these red shoes are about a half-size too big because i am truly a 6.5, not a 7, but 7s are just so much easier to find than 6.5s. the struggle is real, i tell ya.
i mixed contrasting neutrals and a fancy necklace with an understated messy bun to dress down this look. a subtle smokey eye, nude lip and pearl studs keep the outfit casual enough to not look overdressed while the heels and sparkles add just enough sophistication for any high-class eatery.
happy valentine's day, friends! may you all wear red heels and paint your fingernails with pink sparkles.
