If there is one thing I love more than shoes it MIGHT be dessert. As I am constantly tempted by the chocolate kisses sitting on my desk for customers, I often find my mind wandering to thoughts of ice cream sundaes and cronuts when I'm supposed to be working.
Desserts, much like footwear, can be very tempting. Everyone has that one treat that they can NOT resist. In this (as always) incredibly scientific blog post, I attempt to determine what shoe you will love based on your favorite dessert. Let's begin!

1. Mini Cupcake - Jeffrey Campbell "So Easy Jewel"
You're girly and fun and you can't resist a little sparkle. You like your desserts bite sized and your shoes easy to slip on and off. This Jeffrey Campbell is for you!

2. Biscotti - Calvin Klein "Sable"
You are always put together and "classy" is basically your middle name. You haven't worn flats since you learned how to walk and you won't be stopping any time soon. You take a biscotti with your morning double espresso to go. This shoe is PERFECT for you. Sleek and stylish with the comfort you can count on from Calvin Klein.

3. Bacon Maple Bar - Matisse "Exotic"
You're not afraid to take risks with your fashion. Someone says '"lace up calf hair sandal" and its like they're calling your name. You don't back away from risky food either. The Bacon Maple Bar is famous in Oregon thanks to local favorite Voodoo Doughnut. Cured pork product on a doughnut? Doesn't scare you!

4. Baked Alaska - All Black "Ankle Lace Geo"
You are passionate, hardworking and you put 100% into everything you do. You don't indulge yourself too often, but when you do you don't fool around. Baked Alaska is the epitome of decadence. It has everything. Ice cream, cake, oh, and did I mention FIRE? If you're gonna buy shoes, you want something special too. Treat yourself to the All Black "Ankle Lace Geo". This sandal has everything. Pattern, color, and just the right platform height.

5. Vanilla Ice Cream - Frye "Carson" Ballet Flat -
Practical and simple, you like a dessert you can always count on to be delicious. You'll try the occasional trendy treat but you always find yourself going back to your tried and true favorite.This Frye flat, much like your go to vanilla ice cream, never goes out of style.

At some point in her life, every woman has faced the same problem. Can I justify buying a shoe for a special occasion that I might only wear once? Whether you're looking for a shoe for your wedding or just for a night out, it can be hard to talk yourself into spending money on a fancy shoe that you know will probably end up spending more time in the closet than on your feet.
Now I don't think it has to be that way. The great thing about a fancy shoe is that it can add interest to an otherwise boring outfit. Don't leave those special heels waiting in a box for a worthy occasion, make any day an occasion! Here's some of my favorite fancy shoes and ideas for dressing them up and dressing them down. 

1. Jeffrey Campbell "Gaby Jewel"
This shoe adds just the right amount of sparkle to make any outfit feel special. The jewels are just as at home with a formal dress as they are dressed down with a sweater and skinny jeans.

2. Sam Edelman "Opal"
Leopard print is basically a neutral. The kitten heel on this shoe is comfy enough to wear all night with a cocktail dress or all day with trendy track pants and a dressed down t shirt.

3. Jeffrey Campbell "Brea"
I can never get enough Jeffrey Campbell and the Brea is the perfect example why. I love how it adds sparkle AND color to an otherwise monotone outfit. Here I show peplums two ways. Dress it up with these skinny coated J Brand pants, or go casual with the Current/Elliot boyfriend jean.

4. Dolce Vita "Leka"
Who says a night out on the town requires a pair of pumps? The Dolce Vita "Leka" bootie is sleek enough to wear with a cocktail dress, and casual enough to throw on with your favorite summer dress and go to denim jacket.
