Trinnah's Questions

  2. What color shoes do you not own and would like to? I really need a pair of red shoes.
  3. What is your favorite shoe for this fall? Riding boots. I plan on wearing them with everything from skinnies to skirts.
  4. How many pairs of shoes do you own? 37. (SHOCKING)
  5. How do you store your shoes? I don't have a set method of storage. Some are in the original boxes under my bed, flat sandals are in a clear storage shelf thing, boots are in big bin, and I have a shoe rack that hangs on my closet door.
  6. Does your significant other support your love for shoes? I'm not that big of a shoe girl (yet), so there's really no need for support.
  7. What’s your favorite designer / brand for shoes? I'm so in love with Tory Burch (even though she's way out of my price range). 
  8. Are you a heels or flats girl? I love the look of a fierce pair of heels, but I'm a flats girl.
  9. How old were you when you first bought heels? I think I was around 16 or 17; I needed them for a military ball. 
  10. Do you like skinny stilettos or chunky heels? I like the look of both depending on the outfit.
  11. How do you feel about wedges? Love, love, love! I get all of the height and style that I want without the fear of breaking my neck or looking like a baby giraffe trying to walk for the first time, lol.

    You know what pair I don't own and now I'm wanting one? Your answer to number 1! LOL. And riding boots are on my list, too. It's so hard to find a pair that fits over my calves. Haha!

    I love your questions! :) Thanks for accepting the award and answering my questions and for the sweetest introduction shout out!

    1. It is pretty cool, and we get to eat twice the amount of cupcakes!

      You def need a pair of leopard flats. I didn't believe it when people said that leopard is a neutral, but I'm finding myself pairing them with everything.

      You are most welcome, and every single word of my intro is true. Thanks, again, for nominating me.
