It’s as old a question as the chicken and the egg. Which comes first: the shoes or the outfit? Even before I owned a shoe store I tended to buy shoes first and the outfit second. But sometimes even the most shoe-obsessed must make a purchase to solve an outfit problem. Sometimes these shoes become one of our favorites, as is the case with my shoe of the month for April.
For the first, and hopefully last, time, I’m showcasing shoes that did not come from The Shoe Hive. I was headed to an outdoor wedding in Lancaster, Ohio. I needed something suited to a lot of standing and complimentary to the most-perfect-est DVF long wrap dress that I didn’t want to shorten. I happen to be at the mall, something that almost never occurs in my Old Town-centric life, and I spotted this pair at Nordstrom. I not only bought the size 7s for me, I went home and ordered a whole case for the store! That’s one of the great perks of owning a shoe store — you never have to settle for just one pair of any style you like.
The shoe is the Micheal Kors Vivian and it’s the perfect platform wedge. It comes in every shoe fabric and color. It also comes in a non sling-back version called the Vail. Both styles have earned a regular spot on our shelves. The only problem with this April Shoe Of The Month is they sell out so quickly!
