Fall 2006 Shoes - My Favorite Trends

Ok, so we all know that I'm not a professional, but I do know what I like, and that's all that really counts, right? Right! That being said, here are my fave shoe trends for fall 2006:

1. Ankle Boot
A daring style for even the most fashionable fashionista...

2. Animal Print
I've always loved animal prints, so this is a must-have for me (good thing I already own a pair of animal print peep-toes...I'll have to share the pic of mine some day)

3. Slouchy Boots
Almost anyone can pull this look off - pair with a lovely wrap-dress or tuck your cutest skinny jeans into these bad boys - this was my one and only purchase at the Nordstrom anniversary sale!

4. Something with bows
How dainty...how ladylike?! How could you not like bows...I mean big, huge, annoyingly-large ones aren't that great, but these are adorable:

5. Two in one - something patent and something peep-toe!
Try anything patent to add a flashy touch to your ensemble. Try anything peep toe to go with just about anything - if you haven't noticed a theme here yet, I love peep toes!

Thanks AnastasiaC! I like platforms so long as they're not too "platform-y" and by that I mean super tall platforms with thick soles..ick!

Thanks Pink Cupcakes...they're adorable in person too!

Shoes have never been my "thing", but love the ankle boots! I found an awesome Marc Jacobs pair of flats that I just blogged about. I love the fall fashion season!

I totally know what you mean...I'm normally not a "shoe" person, but recently, I've started getting into it more...now if I could just finish that darn "Project Debt-Free" so I could save some $ for some designer shoes!!
