Need New Shoes? Look To The Stars.

Online shoe shopping can be overwhelming, to say the least. The Internet is vast. So vast. And very, very full of shoes.

If you feel unsure of how to chose between slip-on black flats with a signature embellished buckle and mesh black flats with a Pavé crystal buckle, you’re not alone. What about leather inserts? Pointed skimmer toes? Tonally topstiched collars? At what point does it allsortofstarttosoundthesame??

Most importantly, where is a girl to seek guidance in these times of uncertainly? Vogue? Marie Claire? Her mother?

I’d like to suggest a more, um, unorthodox source of inspiration; look to the stars.

Runway trends may come and go, but astrology is timeless. And, mercury is retrograde until October 9th. Take of that what you will.

Aries

Taurus

Taurus loves to indulge in a little bit of luxury. Okay, maybe a lot of luxury. In any case, these golden kicks are just right for the comfort-oriented earth sign. These glossy leather sandals play into Taurus’ deeply tactile nature.

Gemini

Gemini has an eye for the edgy. No matter the circumstances, we can be sure that Gemini will steer clear of fashion doldrums. What’s more, Topshop’s juxtaposition of wood and metallic, retro and futuristic, plays into Gemini’s distinctly dualistic nature.

Cancer

Cancer experiences the world on a deeply personal level. Creative and empathic, these home-oriented souls aren’t afraid to bear their emotions. As individuals with deep roots, cancers derive inspiration from a garden motif.

Leo

The Zodiac’s supreme diva, Leo thrives in the the spotlight. And yes, Leo, you can be sure that these black suede pumps will catch everyone’s eye. What’s more, Christian Louboutin’s signature red soles hint at the lion’s fiery side.

Virgo

Detail oriented Virgo does sweat the small stuff. For this reason, those born under the sign are inclined to seemless details and understated styles. These woven sandals are in keeping with Virgo’s unassuming demeanour.

Libra

Scorpio
