Kimberly Lyn, The Souls of my Shoes

Kimberly had us at, “You can never have enough shoes, especially black ones”. Like us, she fully understands that shoes speak a language to the heart and each pair has something to say.

She provides insights about fashion with a concentration on footwear, which we couldn’t help but adore.

Ashley, Pursuit of Shoes

She is an LA girl born and raised. Graduating from USC in 2008 with an Accounting Degree, Ashley went straight to work after she completed school. After two years of work at Big 4 Accounting Firm, she decided to follow her heart and jump into fashion! We admire her huge shoe obsession, it’s something we both have in common. Her style is also similar to ours, sexy yet sophisticated. She is able to rock a fitted midi-dress like no other and is never afraid to show just a little bit of skin. She loves lace, denim and body hugging silhouettes. She is so personable, relatable, and inspirational. It’s safe to say we have all been there when Ashley said, “When I see a shoe I absolutely love, it literally takes my breath away”. Know the feeling?? Ashley describes her shoe obsession as beginning in high school, or possibly earlier, giving blame to the 12 years of private school uniforms, and only “predominately all black or white” tennis shoes allowed. That could make a girl go shoe crazy! She writes about beautiful shoes, amazing shoe sales, celebrity shoe choices, and much more!

First let’s talk Complimentary Color’sComplementary colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other, such as red and green and red-purple and yellow-green.

In addition to the base color, it uses the two colors adjacent to its complement. This color scheme has the same strong visual contrast as the complementary color scheme, but has less tension. The split-complimentary color scheme is often a good choice for beginners, because it is difficult to mess up.

BLACK HEELS | DAY & NIGHT

DAY When wearing black heels during the day, you want to steer clear of thick straps and extreme heel height. Honestly, the more minimal the better when it comes to black heels during the day. I always think that a thin ankle strap is the way to go. When the feet look bare you can pair the heels with distressed denim, patterns and light layers for cooler weather. If you have a heavier heel you usually would style your look more minimal, less clothing, body hugging and with simple patterns.

NIGHT When styling your nighttime outfit, always be a little bit bolder. Choose a black heel that has an intricate pattern, like a gladiator style or cage heel. This will amp up your look and you can impress your friends with your styling tricks. Choose your outfit based around the heels. Try wearing a simple black dress or if you feel a bit more adventurous try a dress with a bright, bold pattern.
